"WE HEAR YOU; WE'LL CHANGE, AND IMPROVE YOUR LIVES"

Yes, brothers and sisters, the words above are PAP Party Chairman KHAW BOON WAN'S at 2011 PARTY CONVENTION held on 27 NOVEMBER 2011.

Until the next election in 2016, there's not a hope in heaven that Singaporeans can have the opportunity to change the PAP government. Meanwhile, I'm grateful to KBW and PAP for the following changes (& non-changes):
  • The increase of bus fare (after Lui Tuck Yew started taking buses?)
  • The increase of taxi fare (has Lui Tuck Yew been taking taxis lately?)
  • The still very expensive and unavailable HDB flats that my first-time applicant child still cannot get after several applications. Bo pian (no choice), the child will have to camp with in-law after her wedding in January.
  • The casinos in Sentosa and Marina Bay and the social problems generated by such gambling dens.
  • The wonderful parks and park connectors (no satire here, I'm sincerely grateful to NParks for the green breathing spaces)
  • The older-than-me (I'm 60 going on 17) aunties and uncles cleaning the Hawker Centre tables and other aunties and uncles collecting toilet entrance fees of 10/20 cents from high-tide customers who need to pee/crap.
  • Not forgetting those hunch-back old folks competing with foreign talents in collecting paper cartons and aluminium cans to make a living!
  • Or the "Poor In Singapore Can't Afford Food?" [Link]
No, Khaw Boon Wan should not be held responsible for the above. However. being the Chairman of PAP and having stated, "WE HEAR YOU; WE'LL CHANGE, AND IMPROVE YOUR LIVES", he's The Man!

Honestly, with the way things are in Singapore, my First-World-Singaporean life may improve if I retire and spend my old age in JB! Then again, satire aside, if Tengku and Lee Kuan Yew had done it differently, JB would have been part of my homeland! Or did someone give credit to Goh Keng Swee for the separation? [Link]

Since 1969, I have served NS and did my Reservist's duties. I married, fooked and stopped at 2 because I was a loyal Singaporean who thought that overcrowding tiny Singapore with more than 2 million was irresponsible.

Fookin' Hell! How was I to know that we would end up with more than 5 millions now!!! For the sake of GDP and Mintsters' obscene salary?

"WE HEAR YOU; WE'LL CHANGE, AND IMPROVE YOUR LIVES".
Until the lives of Singaporeans (I mean all Singaporeans, not just PAP sucker-ups and their affiliates, PAP MPs and PAP Mintsters) improve, Talk is Cheap!

Cheaper than a $8 CABG (Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Surgery including A1 class ward, Agiogram etc.)! [Link]

Based on this [Link], I hope I won't be cursed to Hell!

"WE HEAR YOU; WE'LL CHANGE, AND IMPROVE YOUR LIVES"

After 40 plus years of "improving" our lives, we get the message.

The only way to really improve our lives is to vote wisely in GE 2016.

The only way to give feedback is to vote wisely.

KBW:
You no need to hear us anymore.
We hear you & your Pro Alien Party loud and clear. We will vote wisely in the future.

You also no need to change anymore.
We will change instead by voting wisely in GE 2016.

You no need to improve our lives anymore.
We will improve our own lives;
By ourselves;
By voting wisely in GE 2016.

Improve our lives, must be the latest PAP joke.

The last time PAP promise us the Swiss standard of living but it was the Swiss "cost of living standards" instead.

And now they seem to have already started to increase profits to help pay for the next Progress Angpow just before the next GE with ComfortDelgro & SMRT taxi fare increases ? What is the next cost increase, PAP?

So don't talk cock if you can't even keep our costs of living down.

Depending on someone who DOES NOT EVEN UNDERSTAND WHAT IS HAPPINESS to improve our live?

I suggest the Minister learns to understand himself FIRST. He is one as egoistic as the Rest in the Cabinet.

Sure, we believe you!! You will improve our lives by persisting with your policies that more foreigners is good for us. That more ridiculous competition in schools is good for our children. That not exempting essential goods and services from GST is good for us. That high COE is good for us. That high property prices and consequently high property taxes is good for us. That privatising every public service which causes prices to go up and up is good for us. That removing pensions (except for a select few) from us and withholding our CPF is good for us. That building smaller houses and flats is good for us. That letting our lives become more miserable as a result of more of such policies is good for us.

If you believe change is coming as per KBW's speech, think again...

In a speech in March 1999, DPM Lee Hsien Loong said, under the heading "Singapore 21":

"The key idea in Singapore 21 is "Active Citizenship", i.e. getting Singaporeans to actively contribute their ideas, time and energy to build a better Singapore. ... Singaporeans can participate at many levels - national, community and the neighbourhood. ... Their contributions can help to improve policy making. ... To realize the ideal of Active Citizenship, we need to involve and consult more people in formulating government policy. Our environment in the 21st century will be very different. Our society will be more educated and sophisticated. Our problems will be more complex. We need to understand the concerns of those affected by our actions, and tap the widest range of experience and knowledge available. In a rapidly changing environment, much of the valuable and up-to-date information is held by people at the frontline. Policy makers must draw on this knowledge to understand realities on the ground, and reach better solutions.

In a speech in November 1999, Mr Eddie Teo, Permanent Secretary (Prime Minister’s Office) said, under the heading "What must change":

"the first change is that government should involve the general public more when it formulates policy. [W]e need to switch from a mindset of telling the public only what it needs to know to one of seeing it in our interest to explain our policies and rules as clearly as possible so that the public can understand and appreciate why government is doing what it does and how that is in the best interest of the country... [G]overnment must expect a more demanding citizenry, one which questions more, expects more information and is not satisfied with merely receiving instructions and complying with rules. Government must be more open both in giving information to the public and in accepting advice and suggestions”.

Keep believing, people - if you dare!

It's a joke that those serious in getting married & have a roof need to rely on lottery (ballot system) to have a flat. Those lucky fella who get a queue number turn into jokers as they may decide to go for other bto development. The serious contenders have to pay for their stupid mistakes - we are make to choose sales of balance or the left-over (either we liked it or not). Don't want? Fine, you lose your first-time priority rights for a year.

The MCP scheme is a flop. It entitles people to extra chances. Yeah, it does not mean you surely get a flat, however does it mean you are that 'suay' or unlucky to fall in the 25% or 1/4 group? What a joke!

Do not be too happy about the hearing, changing and improving. Sometimes the smoke signals they give out can be misleading.

It could also mean they are still hearing only the selective feedbacks, changing in the sense of tightening the loopholes and making the goalmouth smaller, and improving further the lives of the haves by pandering to their demands and providing more opportunitees for them to accumulate more wealth, while continuing to leave the have nots to struggle with trying to cope with the ever rising cost of living.

Mr Fish;

your latest post 'Sister Theresa's Non Revenue Life and SMRT's Revenue Hours', got gobbled up by the Shark?

Dear Anon of December 20, 2011 9:22 AM,

My apologies for 'Sister Theresa's Non Revenue Life and SMRT's Revenue Hours' not appearing on my blog.

In that blog, I was comparing the charity and selfless work of Sister Theresa Hsu with that of obscenely paid MIW ministers. Example of which is Transport Minister using the term "revenue hours" instead of "operating or servicing hours" in his press conference on the SMRT Fiasco.

However, after reading again Sharana Rao's statement at http://www.hearttoheartservice.org/ of respecting the wishes of Sister Theresa, I decided to delete the article I wrote. I love and respect Sister Theresa. To use her good name to rant about PAP does not seem right after my overnight thought. Thats why I decided to delete that blog.

I beg your pardon and hope you understand.

Thank you

No problem. Your consideration shows that You are a conscientious person.
Theresa was/is indeed a very respectable person.

Thank You much for responding to me.

In the event of the difficulty, the code audience shows warning and repair lights to the instrument autoboss pc max wireless panel alerting the user to obtain the automobile examined and fixed by a mechanic. The system might be afterwards reset, hence erasing the codes and turning from the warning and repair lights.
