Is SG equivalent to PAP?

For many Singaporeans, they think so.

However Mr Teo Ser Luck, Parliamentary Secretary for MCYS & MOT, also Mayor for North East CDC begs to differ. In his own perspective, Teo feels that all past and present achievements which are attained by Singapore belongs to Singaporeans.

He was speaking at a political dialogue organised by NUS Political Science Society last Friday night, held at the NUS Shaw Foundation Alumni House.

Also joining him at the dialogue were Mr Christopher De Souza
(MP for Holland-Bt Timah GRC), Mr Zaqy Mohammad (MP for Hong Kah GRC) and Mrs Pauline Straughan Tay (Nominated Member of Parliament).

After work discussion with my team leader at my real estate office in Toa Payoh Central, I quickly took a cab rushing down to NUS.

I was about 30 minutes late when I arrived there. Some of my friends also attended the dialogue.

This public dialogue was an open discussion on the untold story of Singapore’s ruling political party in the book  ‘Men in White’.  And also a sharing of perspectives looking at issues such as PAP’s hegemony and analysing if Singapore’s history has a certain impact on Singapore’s current politics and whether it also have an impact in Singapore’s politics in future years.

Many students and members of the public attended this 2-hour dialogue and asked questions, of which some were on the topic of General Elections.

(There was online speculation that the upcoming Singapore General Elections may possibly take place anytime after Youth Olympics Games in August 2010. There’s one thing for sure, and it is —  there will be alot more well-educated young voters among Singaporeans in the coming GE, compared to the previous. For we the young ones, many would like to have a chance to cast vote because as an active citizen, it means being empowered, having a stake in the ownership of the country and thus, contribute to shape up the country’s future. )

There was a special autography session of “Men In White” book by the three men after the dialogue. I brought along my book for them to sign. Hehe.

Straight Talk - The Audience

Ok, let’s talk about something not-so-serious.

Do you think Singapore is a fine but BOOOOOORING city?  Heard about flash mob?

Here’s one which has taken place at the busy Raffles Place MRT Station during the mad lunchtime hour, also last Friday afternoon. Friends were circulating the clip in Facebook.

Heard that it was a flash mob dance put in place by HTC smartphone. Yes, a publicity stunt it is.

Anyway sometimes, we really need some stress-busters like that. Life is more than exams, textbooks, profits and losses. Why are we all making ourselves soooooooooooo stressed up?

Singaporeans — come on, don’t be afraid to show your fun-loving side! 😀
