I am Nobody, Just a Singaporean Blogger

Like everything else, the funny thing about blogging is you do not know until you know. Ask Alex Au of yawningbread [Link] and Richard Wan of TR Emeritus [Link].

Those who love me and those I love advise me to lay off. To blog no more. They do not want me to embarrass myself and my loved ones if I'm threatened and forced to apologise and withdraw the posts in my blog when threatened with lawyer's letter from the rich and powerful. For the love of life, for the love of peace, for the avoidance of trouble, I have been cajoled, persuaded and begged not to mess with the power that is. Not to be vocal with what I feel in my heart, in my soul. Not to disrespect the Chosen Ones! Not to bug the leegal rights of those whose power is so consuming that even wise men and political leaders like Chia Thye Poh, Said Zahari, Dr Lim Hock Siew and many others of the 60's, 70's and 80's, JB Jeyaratnam, Francis Seow, Tang Liang Hong and Chee Soon Juan [Link] fell prey to. Some concerned souls are even worried that the 'power' is so 'dark' that they, like '007' James Bond,  has a license to kill. They can do a 'safe house' on you.

No, I do not want to lose money in defamation suit. Having no money, I also do not want to be a bankrupt or spend time in jail. I do not want to be 'accidentally killed'. But . . .

I just saw this through Martyn See's Singapore Rebel [Link] and it encourages me to continue to be who I am. Do what I do.

To share priceless truths with as many as possible. Truths that will never be told or shown by the Singapore mainstream media!

Coincidentally, the front page of Straits Times on 29 Feb 2012 tells the '1,000-Day Ordeal' of ST journalist Ching Cheong who was charged in a Chinese court and found guilty of espionage in China. [Link] If what China did to Ching Cheong was wrong, was Singapore right in incarcerating a Singaporean for 32 years without even giving him a trial in court? Isn't it a shame that ST did not ask Chia Thye Poh, Said Zahari, Dr Lim Hock Siew and many others including Vincent Cheng and Teo So Lung of their ordeal in solitary confinement and prison? Or encourage and help them write books? How about one titled 'My 32-Years-Of-Hell-In-Singapore' by Chia Thye Poh?

Seeing Francis Khoo's video on Martyn See's blog, how can we be not moved by their sense of adventure, justice and fortitude in doing what's right! Are we so gripped by fear and engrossed with making a living that we know not how to live with enough courage to write or speak (even anonymously) of our frustration and angst of the lack of accountability and bullying arrogance of the annointed? To voice our unhappiness for the injustice and lack of freedom? To help build a democratic society based on justice and equality? To live with freedom and  not to be

Born Unfree

Not that I was not hungry
I refused the food;
nor that I was not sleepy
I kept awake.

my ears keep hearing
the cry of an infant.

for months in solitary,
it was a source of anxiety;
for hours to this moment,
it is endless excitement.

then came the news of
the arrival of my little one.

I am the father
robbed of my freedom
whose world has shrunk
into a dark little dungeon.

my child, just born
into a world yet unfree.

Said Zahari 

Having sang "God Save The Queen", "Negara Ku' and "Majulah Singapura" as my National Anthem, I am old enough to know that the future of my children and their children will go to he dogs if the PAP persist in their ways of 'fixing and buying' and 'playing to the gallery'. Having served my full-time National Service from 1969 to 1971 and having done my reservist training not only in SAF but also in SCDF, I have paid my dues as a citizen of Singapore.

For that and with Khaw Boon Wan's "Come Clean" admonition to Workers' Party,
  1. I wish that they'd come clean on my CPF!
  2. I wish that they'd come clean on whatever they did and do in Temasek Holdings and GIC!
  3. I wish that they'd come clean on why a 'by-election was acceptable in Marine Parade but not so in Hougang now?"
  4. I with that they'd come clean on the 'perceived' nepotism! [Link]
  5. I wish that they'd come down from their ivory tower and really serve the people. Stop belittling and  lording over us with threats of defamation and other silliness
I am a nobody in the eyes of the elites of PAP.
But a Singaporean I am!

I may be threatened by leegal letters for being vocal.
But a Singaporean I am!

I may be arrested in the middle of the night by those in power.
But a Singaporean I am!

I may even be 'accidentally' run over and be killed like in "Safe House" [Link]
But a Singaporean I am!

Until they feed me to the fish
A Singaporean I am!

I am sad that there's so much injustice here.

Be patient I tell myself as God will punish the wicked if not in this world, it will be in the next.

I wish there are more people like you. After decades of control and conditioning, you have a country without free spirit, inspiration, and compassion.

The way they deal with CPF, reserves, elections, nepotism, and justice has the marking of an unaccountable, if not corrupt, regime.

For people who stood up against them, they were silenced, made bankrupt, jailed, or in exile.

This must change if your children are to be free.

I wish you the best.

Bravo Mr Fish! If everyone were as brave or committed to exposing the truth like you are, then there is no way they can sue, accidentally kill or do anything to perpetuate the fear. There is strength in numbers and I hope the people of Singapore awaken to this soon and take back their lives!

There is a slogan in the film "Killer Elite' which says: "You can run, You can hide but you never get away."

With the INTERNET age, all information is easy available and archived. The papies will enjoy all the "glory" but will never get away from the hell which they have created for themselves, after all, we will die one day so are those papies.

As far as bloggers are concerned,all the warning letters from the lawyers accompolihed nothing.
It hardened our resolve to put more sunlight on opaque issues.

There is nothing the PAP can do to me in Canada but for you it is different. You have my respect for having the guts to stand up to the authorities. I know it is not easy. Keep up the brave work.

Dear mr fish, thank you for giving the soul back to this little red dot. Soul is something so lacking here. Some time it makes me immensely sad.

Will miss your blog if u stop blogging though.

Jia you !

Do small favour to loved ones by not posting everything in the air (minus hatred). One small consolation is only #3 will be answered pretty soon.

A gentle note (repost here) - Jack be nimble, Jack be quick, Jack jump over The 'hatred' stick

Cheers ! I follow your blogs too! Keep writing the truth for us!

Datuk Fish,
Keep writing the truth for us. But pls be careful. We don't to lose you - the true son of Singapore! We will always remember you forever for your courage and fearless fortitude. It seems that we are living in fear in dark ages even we are no criminals! We never rob or kill yet we fear for our life. Is this a free country I wonder? Or is it worst than 3rd world country I wonder? I yet to hear of politicians in those advanced countries suing others for their views? "Swiss" standard of living? My foot!Yes they are desperate to main and retain power at all costs and by all means even though others are laughing at their antics!

What The FISH !!! (polite version of the other impolite four-letter F-word).

This 64-year old native-born “EMERITUS” Senior Citizen (who had completed full-time National Service) has this comment:

When I was in primary school, I was a “British Subject” and sang “GOD SAVE THE QUEEN”.

Now a S’pore Citizen, I am singing “GOD SAVE SINGAPORE” (from the clueless/hopeless Almighty Arrogant PAP Govt and its never-ending numerous f**ked-up policies that have screwed up the long-term future of SINGAPORE [The Nation] and SINGAPOREANS [The People]) !!!

The PAP controlled -Straits Times today's coverage on the parliamentary debate portrayed opposition MPs in a very unfavourable light.

One PAP MP even said he made a joke on WP CSM speech.

That PAP MP and PAP media should apologize to Singapore Citizens for being so unfair and biasd to their elected representative in the parliament.

Break up the State media!

It is the obstacle to DEMOCRACY and change.

Fish, not possible for you to be a nobody....not in the blogosphere anyway, not when you have been dishing out truth that hurts.
ps: just ask your readers :)

The Shit Times even had the cheek to publish their HK correspondent's article about the importance of free speech and that the PRC authorities had not really improved on their governance.

Looks like they forgot to look at their own backyard. Sometimes it just make one wonder whether our friendship with China is really that sincere when in appears we sometimes stab them in their back ?
