Lily Neo Gets It


I was trawling Hansard and chanced upon Lily Neo's speech at the parliament sitting on 16 September, which can be found at the end of this post. It's long, but definitely worth the read.  And here's the summary for us lazy ones: "For a long time, Madam, we have

WP Minority Representation

I read with great amusement a letter to the forum today, “Workers’ Party lacks minority representation?” Barring the fact that the writer happens to be an assenter for the Reform Party, and the fact that the “lack of minority representation” in the Workers’ Party is very much a myth, I’m of the opinion that the prevailing perspective that minority representation and the classification of Singaporeans into the various races has very much stunted the potential for an all-inclusive society.  Read more

There has been enough online coverage on the issue of the Aljunied-Hougang Town Council and the $2 shareholding AIM. Wish we could say the same about coverage on the mainstream media. There’s a particularly good one from Alex Au, which delves deeper into a more pressing issue of the PAP and its tactics. Read more

WP Doing Nothing?

Wow, I’ve really just had it with smart asses accusing the Workers’ Party of doing nothing, so yes, this is going to be a long rant.

Have a look within the Workers’ Party. 6 MPs, 2 NCMPs, include all those who ran for elections, members and volunteers and we are looking at say 100 – 200 people (please don’t take this number literally, I am very bad at Math). What has the Workers’ Party done since GE2011? Read more

That Tricky Little Thing We Call Affairs

It really is rather difficult to resist someone like Marilyn Monroe…

Singapore will end 2012 in memorable fashion, not for medals won in the Olympics, or being the world’s leading arts/sports/educational/medical/whatever hub, but for having the most number of scandals exposed in a year. I say number of scandals exposed because these are merely the ones being found out, there are obviously plenty more still under wraps.  Read more

A New Beginning

Posted on by angmohlian in The Wandering Soul | Leave a comment

In a spur of a moment, I decided to go on a 3-week social media fast. Deactivated both Facebook and Twitter accounts, locked Instagram and disappeared from the social media world. The only platform I was using was Path, with a grand total of 7 friends (only 4 active ones).

It was the most liberating 3 weeks of my life. (And I highly recommend you to try it.) Read more
