Singaporeans' Sense of Humour and Forgiving Trait!

This picture comes from from AsiaOne [Link].

In terms of photoshop funny, it is cute. But it is hard to come to terms that she really sat on a sedan chair carried by half-naked men during SMRTs dinner and dance event. Apart from the sense of disgust from commuters, I wonder if Cleopatra would be flattered by such excesses?

On the subject of humour, to really ROFL (roll on floor laughing?) you must visit mrbrown here [Link]. His clarification on on the SMRT Breakdown cracked me up! Still does! His command of English is awesome and his white shirt is so MIW!

To every life, a little rain must fall. Seng Han Thong [Link] is paying the price now for a TV appearance that he wished would disappear. Honestly, I do not know if Seng Han Thong is a racist. I mean, who knows?

Remember Lee Kuan Yew went about, “Well, we make them say the national pledge and sing the national anthem but suppose we have a famine, will your Malay neighbour give you the last few grains of rice or will she share it with her family or fellow Muslim or vice versa?”[Link]

Can you recall LKY saying, "To persuade Malay parents to look after their daughters more carefully and not to have teenage pregnancy which leads to failed marriages, subsequent marriages also fail and delinquents . . . ? [Link] Are there no teenage unmarried pregnancies among other races like the Chinese (the race I belong to)? Admittedly, he's trying to show that cross race advice from MPs (and mintsters) of other races may not be easily accepted. But why target the Malays? I would have expected a 'Leeder' of Chinese descent to use Chinese race as a example. That would have been more sensitive and less racist!

What about LKY's posture on 'I stand corrected' for saying the 'Hard Truth' that my Malay/Muslim friends cannot integrate? Hello, I know a Malay/Muslim prayed at my Chinese friend's house and never in my 60-year-old life did any of my Malay/Muslim friends reject an offer to eat on the same table with me. Even when I'm having Char Siew Wanton Mee, my Malay friends just tell me, "Don't you try to be fooking funny and offer me the 'char siew' just to prove LKY is wrong!" Maybe there is a difference between real friends and patronising 'friends' of obscenely rich and powerful ministers.

Question: Compared to the current slaying of SHT especially by PAP MPs including Halimah, why wasn't much noise made about Dear Leeder's objectionable comments on race and religion previously?

Why is SHT is getting more flame than LKY for the same kind of 'not so nice' comments. Is this a case of never bite the hand that feeds you? Even the hand has insulted your race and religion? There is a Chinese saying in Hokkien, "Kuah tio sen, tio pai. Kuah tio ter, tio tai". Roughly translated, it means, "See God, kneel down and pray. See pig, take out knife and slaughter" (Pig here can mean any animal good for its meat for food - lamb [mutton] and cow [beef]).

Yes, respect those that can mess you up (even if they suck big time!) but walk all over those that you know cannot harm you ;)

So do we forgive some and not others?

Can we forgive what's done to Chia Thye Poh?

Life does scale to a balance . . . sometimes. In this year end festive season, it is good to know that Chia Thye Poh is awarded for something other than being the longest held (32 years) political detainee. Not from Singapore but Malaysia! It's a shame to miss this Video [Link] and report [Link].

Season' greeting and Happy Holidays to all!

Oh you are 60 yrs old! In one fell stroke, you have summarised the latest hot topics of the past few days! Only LKY can get away with such remarks. The others no way! Dont ever try or you will be the "pig" and get slaughtered! LOL!

on the subject of 'ponding' or flooding, does it happen often in very built-up cities like New York, Tokyo & London ? The weather there is more extreme than in S'pore. Should ask LKY to go on study trip(self-paid since he cannot ever finish spending what he has extracted from his citizens to pay himself).He once said ' no amount of engineering feat can ....' Should confirm whether what he says is true
