Why PAP leaders cannot match up to Braema Mathi

As paying $40 to watch "live" at Suntec City is too rich for me, I have to be patient and learn of what happened at the EGM of AWARE through the website at [link]

Yes, $40 can buy me 20 plates of "mee siam mai hum"!

While following the "live report", the sweetest words I read were:

7.05pm: Braema Mathi: "My reputation is being put on the line and I don't like it, but I will not follow the examples of leaders and launch defamation lawsuits against you!"

Having been unceremoniously sacked as chairman of CEDAW committee in Aware, I was surprised that this cool lady was able speak to CNA reporter in such a manner. [earlier interview here]

Though she may not have the power and material influence of the ilk like Lee Kuan Yew, Goh Chok Tong and Lee Hsien Loong to suka suka sue, I'm sure she can if she wants to.

The audacity to spend $90,000 of Aware's money unconstitutionally on legal counsel is atrocious but to hear Josie Lau's husband said,
Dr Alan Chin: "I am from COOS and I am not ashamed to admit that. I would like to clarify that COOS did not ask its members to come here to promote Christianity. Please be rational, although $90,000 is spent, but we have recouped it by the new membership fees of $120,000." [link] is something else! Just how audacious and self-righteous can one get?

As much as I'm happy that those who deserve to be in Aware are back in Aware, I'm sad that the good of the Christian community in Singapore (and elsewhere) may be tainted by the selfish act of intolerance, hubris and devil-may-care attitude of a Christian minority.

Having lost the confidence of its members constitutionally, I hope that the 'newbies' in Aware from Church Of Our Saviour will learn how to bite the bullet graciously.

Lets forgive and pray for them. May the Saviour saves them all.

I'm sure many, like me, love Braema for her fortitude, attitude and exemplary down-to-earth behaviour. Hip Hip Hurray! You go girl!

As always, I'm grateful to Siew Kum Hong for his presence at the meeting. He makes the $90,000 legal fees spent by Josie Lau & Co. another straw in the nose of Aware members! [youtube link]. Oops, so that's where all the $40 membership fee went! Now, I don't blame members for feeling like rape or sodomy victims.

Funny, Josie's lawyers walks away with $90 grand while Siew Kum Hong gets zilch for their contribution at the EGM. I guess humility and decency wins helpful friends! There's hope yet for Singapore!

In appreciation for what he has done for Singapore, especially for speaking for the real Aware, the marginalised and poor blokes like me, I look forward to kiss his botak head when I see him!

Thanks Braema. Thanks Kum Hong. We need more brudders and sisters like you in Singapore!

PS: Even if Kum Hong is paid, I don't think the money would have come from Aware's fund.

PPS: I stand corrected if the facts (especially the $90,000 for legal fees) I understand from [link] is inaccurate.

How can you compare PAP leaders with Braema Mathi? PAP leaders are different mah. They got power and tons of money. They also have 50% walkovers and 98% seats at every election no matter what. So how can you expect them to behave like Braema Mathi? Don't joke lah.

Clearly they did not raise $120,000. Student members are $5, and there were a lot of students yesterday. Even then, spending more than $20k IS against the constitution rules. And they tried to use the constitution to defend their right to continue as the committee. Dumbasses.

wait until you actually have to WORK with brema, then you will know what she is really like.

Braema, I salute you.

You are thousands time better than the MIW who can't stand on their own feet and need the K** court to defend them.

i met Breama once before and she's a really nice friendly lady with no airs at all.

Just a minor point...

I think NMP Siew actually paid S$40 to sign up as a member last October...hahah

But seriously, the former JL-led EXCO should be taken to task for failing in their fiduciary duties - they are only the custodians/trustees of AWARE's funds - who gave them the authority to spend money like water?

If Josie and company are so good at looking at loopholes in the AWARE and how to takeover AWARE legally, they should also be aware of the top limit on expenditures by the EXCO. I am sure Derek Hong and the various members of the church will be more than willing to help foot the bill, if Josie made a small mistake for their church.....

Mr.Fish, can such men be leaders?

Who need plenty of balls-carriers,
Who need a skewed judiciary,
Who fear the truth,
Who cheat at elections,
Who overrate + overpay themselves,
Who show no accountability,
Who love only themselves.
