Could A Public Figure Figured It Wrong?

Poor Sod. The decision by his boss to appoint Gerard Ee to do a "Capable and Committed Ministers' Salary Review may not be something he figured when he quit the Energy Market Authority to become a politician. Pay Cut!

I thought I had my last words on the "Capable and Committed Ministers" Salary Review and am looking forward to welcome the Dragon Year with a sense of joy, peace and gratitude for another 'bonus' year lived - without major hiccups to my health.

However after reading of Straits Times' report for 2 consecutive days, "PAP: Further shift in Workers' Party's stance" [Link] on Lawrence Wong's unhappiness and refusal to accept closure on the subject after the parliamentary debate, I thought I would share some to end the year.

The parliamentary debate is over and I would thought that politicians especially ministers would start working for their money and stop arguing and lamenting their financial losses and self-perceived sacrifices. What's worse and more deplorable is trying to "play politics" and get more "political mileage" out of it, as condemned by none other than Teo Chee Hean.

After reading about this young "public figure" [Link], I perceive that some people may believe that they are god's gifts to mankind. They are the "chosen ones" and they deserve better. They should not deserve a pay cut!

On this last day of the lunar year of the rabbit, I offer my condolences to PAP ministers and MPs for their loss. I'm sorry for your loss. As some of you may go through the 5-stages of grief namely, denial; anger; bargaining; depression and acceptance. I do hope that you'll reach the 5th stage of 'acceptance' very soon.

Remember, you still have a job to do. To build and inclusive society with your heart and make a better life for all Singaporeans. However, if you think that it is a thankless job, I humbly suggest that you plan your exit by volunteering to be selected as PAP candidates in Aljunied GRC in the next election. Meanwhile, just grin and bear.

I'd like to dedicate Eagles's "Get Over It" [Link] to help some of you overcome your sorrow.

For whatever that's thrown at us
We can choose to be bitter
Or choose to be better
Better is the only option

I choose to be better by not moaning and bitching about the "Capable and Committed Ministers' Salary" anymore. Not till the next review and I hope Lawrence will do the same ;)

Last words:
PM Lee must be congratulated for having kicked the ball to Gerrard Ee and can now have the "moral" high ground to say that the fat pay came from "Review Committee" and not from him as in 2007!

Happy Chinese New Year & Happy Holidays!

This is the same chap that says it is ok to put Normal Tech students into " special schools".

Never know that one has to defend a pay cut.

It is like a shop claiming loss-incurring prices at a "closing down" sale -- all wayang.

Why can't this guy just laugh quietly all the way to the bank instead of letting his high pay making all the noise?

Who is Lawrence Wong? the name sound too alien in PAP camp. Is he another undeserving million dollar stooge to call himself saint? I rather pay celebrity who is out and about more than our politician.

Talking about sacrifice, anyone who grab a piece of Straits Times will certainly sacrifice the most because the "news" are not value for money - you pay to brain-wash.

He mus have his last word or last laugh for PAP and why not. They have jus won a chicken feed war parleementing a new pay structure that not only still pay them the highest politician salaries in the world but could even turn out to better off for them under the new formula than the old formula.

At this time it seems like Drupal is the top blogging platform available right now.
(from what I've read) Is that what you're using on your blog?

Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than
just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and all.
Nevertheless think of if you added some great visuals or videos to give your posts
more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this site could definitely be one
of the most beneficial in its niche. Excellent blog!

I'm new to building internet sites and I was wanting to know if having your blog title relevant to your articles and other content really that vital? I see your title, "Blogger: Feed Me To The Fish " does appear to be spot on with what your blog is about but yet, I prefer to keep my title less content descriptive and based more around site branding. Would you think this is a good idea or bad idea? Any kind of assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and screamed.

There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had
to tell someone!

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point.
You clearly know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when you could be giving
us something informative to read?
