National Day 2012 - Thoughts Of A Singaporean

Rumours abound about Lee Kuan Yew being dead. I don't give a damn if he's dead or alive. Hey, we may just die before he does. We live we die. Just so we do not need our child to defend our frugality [Joke Link1] and [Joke Link2], we are doing great!

Live, die, who cares? I'm just perturbed by the fact that he's getting "gaji buta" ("blind salary"  in Malay). Getting paid for not doing his job as a MP  like doing "Meet The People Sessions" in Tanjong Pagar constituency.

On this National Day, I wish to note:
  • Hougangites (residents of Hougang) showed courage and integrity teaching Singaporeans that there is hope yet for equality, freedom and democracy in Singapore
  • The courage of Singaporeans who wrote "That We May Dream Again" telling us the cruel atrocities inflicted upon them by a desperate despot who is currently rumoured to be dead. [Link] and [Link]
  • Persons accused of corruption and sleaze having the courage to fight for their rights in court. Ex-CNB chief Ng Boon Gay; former chief of SCDF Peter Lim Sin Pang and NUS law professor Tey Tsun Hang will have their days in court to spill the beans showing us what filth is all about in our current regime.
  • The 'cleanliness' of PAP minister awarding tender to his predecessor [Link]
  • No more banners of gigantic pictures of MIW at every street corner in August showboating themselves to be more visible to electorate. If not for their loss to WP at Aljunied GRC and Hougang, their shameful contemptible advertising would have continued
  • Singapore Table Tennis Team not winning the silver again
“To come in late in the day with imported talent and claim they are British success stories isn’t about being open to migrants. It’s just cheating. Nobody watching will be fooled. If they get medals, we’ll feel a little embarrassed. Whether it’s swimming or anything else, let’s have a sporting culture strong enough for us to know, when we win, that it’s a real, homegrown achievement, not a fiddle. Otherwise, frankly, I’d rather we lost.” – Jackie Ashley, The Guardian.

It's just cheating as in fixing and buying [Link] votes. Yes, I'd rather we lost. The 2 bronze medals won by imported talents brings not glory but shame to Singapore. In their desperate chase to be popular, the PAP minsters have shown us how vainglorious they are. They are nothing but pimps where the Singapore Olympic table tennis team is concerned. What prize the Olympic 2012 bronze medals won by Singapore? Though imported PRCs can get $250,000 for the bronze medal, the medal ain't worth the ST newspaper used for picking up the droppings of dogs.The bronze medals won by the imports means nothing to 80% of Singaporeans! [Link]

For the less informed, Dollah Kassim, Mat Nor, Rajagopal, Quah Kim Song and their teammates - these are the true sportsmen who made and still make Singaporeans proud. The did not need the prize money to spur them to do their best for Singapore! They did it because they were not tainted by the greed for money perpetrated by PAP!

I just want to celebrate another day of living
I just want to celebrate another day of life

Happy National Day!

ps: Any idea what's the betting ratio of Lee Kuan Yew appearing at the NDP 2012?

Thanks for writing Fish. Let's hope we get to see a new Singapore in rainbow colours in our lifetime. White is no longer white.

"White is no longer white."

Sometimes, I wonder if it ever was white in the first place.

A very disappointed and disillusioned Singaporean.

PAP will not gain my respect regardless LKY is alive. I wonder how many Singaporeans truly attend the National Day parade. It must be a place now filled with foreigners and our sons wearing green are merely their entertainers. Go to istana, you will be overwhelmed by the numbers of foreigners visiting on this day. National Day is best stay at home and hope that old fart will not appear in the scene.

True...my son will grow up wearing green n entertain those FT, FI or FW during N day.

Medal...yeah, a shame rather than proud. How much did SG spent on them? $ could be better used to assist the needy or even buy a few dozen of buses.

With his demise, hopefully we may have a new start, not one bogged down by his anachronistic insecurities, paranoia and megalomania.

That we can truly be a nation built upon democratic principles, not a half-assed one. That the pledge is a commitment, and not just an aspiration.

That National Day can be celebrated by the whole people, the whole nation(?), and not one co-opted by the ruling party to propagandize their achievements. It is a time to glorify our past heroes like Lim Bo Seng.

We heard the rumour yesterday, the first thought came to our mind: sad? or happy? One said: who cares, better dead as he's still drawing a big fat salary although not doing much. Sounds a bit unkind but my sentiment too (there are many elderly Singaporean still working very hard trying to make ends meet and many got their CPF locked). We really need some fresh air. Happy National Day, Fish!

Thank you Mr Fish for speaking the mind on behalf of many Singaporeans. Many of us are not as sharp and skilled in writing as you are. You are a gem!

Seems that some people will bring happiness 'wherever' they go.

And it seems that some people will bring happiness 'whenever' they go.

Please double confirm with cremation.

We don't want any chance of return with the new deep freeze techniques.

Wonder if they have prepared any cells for future cloning?

Ya hor. He did say something about returning from the grave if anything goes wrong.

Now, what could have gone wrong anyway? Everything is so right, I mean from the top, it seems. I cannot say that from the bottom.
