I Worry For My Grandchildren

In the year 2030, my grandson will be doing his National Service (if it still exists by then). His elder sister, my grand daughter, will be in the workforce.

I read of the White Paper that PAP government is aiming for a population of 7 million (give or take 100k) in Singapore. Why it is tabled to be discussed in Parliament is beyond me. Instead of talking cock in parliament of how many people we need in Singapore, why can't the millionaire ministers shut the fook up and just get the work done! No, not to hit the target of 6,900,000 but get off their butts to solve the current problems of:
  1. public housing not enough
  2. mrt trains not enough
  3. buses not enough
  4. roads not enough
  5. hospitals and beds not enough
  6. polyclinics not enough
  7. places in schools and universities not enough
  8. jobs for Singaporeans not enough
  9. money not enough (to catch up with inflation)
  10. happiness not enough
because of their reckless importation of foreigners without a thought to the damage they created.

With the current 5.3 million people in Singapore, I already find it hard to breathe. People, people everywhere. Rushing here, shoving there. In the trains; the buses; parks; shopping malls; on the roads; by the pavements; in the open fields! Wherever I am in Singapore, I'm never in Singapore. With the people that I see and the voices that I hear, I'm either in China, India or in Philippines. Never feel like I'm in Singapore. Occasionally, I'm in Thailand, Burma or Vietnam. As one human being to another, I have no dislike for people from these countries. It is the PAP government that I resent for stealing Singapore from me and my loved ones.

There is so much talk about how the increasing population and the importation of foreigners help the economy, the GDP and growth of my country. I'm a Cambridge Certificate boy (O level not degree like what the PM has double) and I do not understand. If there is growth, why are we not feeling it? Instead of growing, we feel like shrinking. To nothingness. Being born and bred in Singapore, I feel I'm being violated by a government that cares for its longevity in wealth and power without any regard for the common people who contributed so much to this nation. 

It is a shame that as much as PM Lee tries to project the image that he is on the side of Singaporeans, he is not. Maybe his cronies and rich elitists may perceive him to be but not others. If he is on the side of Singaporeans, he would not be so wicked as to let the current ills in Singapore fester.

If we are suffocating from the current over-crowdedness, struggling physically and financially against foreigners just to have basic amenities like public housing,  transportation and medical care, what of our children and grandchildren come 2030?

What outrages me most is when MND announced the building of more flats and MOT announced the building of more MRT lines during the Punggol East by-election. I thought it was just a political ploy to win more votes for the colorectal doctor. It is heinous of them to do it for the sake of importing more foreigners. 

For decades, I have been a 'quai quai' = 'well behaved' Singaporean. I did my NS in late 60's and my many years of reservist's training. At 55, I realised that I've been fooked by CPF when they did not release in full the money that I started saving since 1967! 

I worked hard to take care of my family; to take care of my country. Except for the free text books that I had during my primary school days, I did not ask for anything from my country. During the times when I was down and out, it was my friends and relatives who helped me. I have never been to a Meet-the-PAPeople-session and I asked not what they can do for me. Reason being I'd rather seek help from friends and relatives than to beg from arrogant pricks! I do not want to be owned by them. My integrity disallow me to owe them any. Now I can tell them in the face, "Mr Minister, you make a mockery of National Service by paying yourself millions from the taxes paid by Singaporeans. You should be ashamed of yourself. How on earth do you sleep at night!" They can fix me but buying me is a different kettle of fish.

For the sake of our children and their children, each of us must send a message, a strong message to the PAP rulers that we do not agree with the crazy Ponzi Demography [Link] that is going on. Like the 'enlightened ones' in Aljunied, Hougang and Punggol East, we must have the courage to protect our loved ones, our children, our grandchildren. We must not let them suffer a fate worse than us. Please be at Hong Lim Park on Saturday, 16th February 2013 at 4.30pm to show PAP that 5.3 million is more than enough!
I hope my readers will join me in doing what is right in Hong Lim.  I have been in the moment and I shall be again to protect my children and my grandchildren by showing PAP that I have overcome the fear. The worry I have for my kids and their kids overrides the fear I have of ISD, PAP and their lawyers' letters,  I have worked too hard, I have suffered too much to see my loved ones travel like this.

The sooner nations reject Ponzi demography and make the needed gradual transition from ever-increasing population growth to population stabilization, the better the prospects for all of humanity and other life on this planet [Link]


Unity is Strength. 

Be there at Hong Lim Park on 16 Feb (Sat) at 4.30pm – “Say NO to 6.9 million population”,

Readers are advised to share this information with people who wish to support the cause.

Thank you

The Party That Was!

For the average Singaporeans, this may be the mother of all parties!

It's only in this coffeeshop at Block 327 Hougang Avenue 5. The scene outside at Avenue 5 is even louder and more celebratory!

That's the party that was.

The other party that "was" is PAP. Looking at the press conference of PAP after BE, one would note that PAP is still on denial mode. By stating that the by election effect is what made WP win is another act of arrogance. Having been humbled by such a margin, I'm amazed that PAP still wants to act tough while licking its wounds.

For the life of me, I cannot understand why PAP cannot be humane and humble and "honest"(as in transparent and speaking from the heart instead of the stubborn brain). I also cannot fathom why they keep ignoring the obvious that there is so much unhappiness among Singaporeans. Without wasting precious resources on national conversations, commissions or enquiries to 'wayang", every Singaporean like Ahmad, Ah Beng, Kumar and Joe would guess:

  • Singaporeans feel cheated (played out) by the way our savings is handled by CPF. 
  • Public Housing HDB flats are not subsidised. Profits are made from the sale of HDB flats.
  • HDB should sell flats at cost plus instead of benchmarking the selling price based on resale flats.
  • Many departments in government/statutory board are OUTSOURCING their jobs to others. Without the outsourcing of HDB to Town Councils to manage housing estates, the loss of residents' money to Lehman Bros would not have happened. Now we know that Town Councils have outsourced to AIM. 
  • Worse, all these outsourcing from one contractor to another has helped to depress wages of labour especially cleaners and security guards. 
  • Singapore is overcrowded not only with foreign workers but also their fathers, mothers, fathers-in-law, mother-s-in-laws and their maids.
  • Singaporeans are angry being called daft deserving spurs on our hides especially when we are so pestered to to be "better, faster and cheaper" workers.
  • Singaporeans are fed up that there is no equality and justice in Singapore - why certain people are charged and imprisoned for making racists' remarks while others are not. Why PAP government and their agencies allow certain MP to instruct traffic warden not to issue summons to offenders. When these agencies and PAP leaders allow such blatant bending of the rules and ignore the cries of citizens for justice and fair play, Singaporeans can only level the playing field by voting for the opposition.
  • Ministers make a mockery of National Service when they pay themselves $millions!
  • Ruling party has totally lost touch with the ground and the by election at Punggol East is the starker that only PAP is too blind to see.
It is a bitch now for PAP to recruit good new blood. Political aspirants with a sense of justice, fair play, equality and loyalty to Singapore may not touch PAP with a ten-foot-pole. Average Singaporean like Ahmad, Ah Beng, Kumar and Joe may even think that there is turmoil within PAP.

In response to George Yeo's, "Whither Singapore", one wonders, "Whither PAP"?

The Big Business Of Singapore

My dear "quitter" schoolmate from downunder  emailed me this. I do not know the source but share I must.   Here goes:

New Towkay wrote to Business Consultant Ah Beng enquiring what to do with his father's business handed down to him.

Dear Ah Beng

My father just handed over his business to me, and I want to follow his example and run it like a typical family-owned Chinese business.  Can teach me how to do it properly? Thank you.

Reply: Dear New Towkay

Eh, not say I say what, but running a classic Chinese fambly business is si beh chia lat one. It's a time-honoured tradition and you cannot anyhow play-play. But you're lucky. Recently, donno why also, but got a lot of people call me and say they are now working for a fambly business (some funny company called Tummy Sick Holdings or something) and want to know how to do things swee-swee. Because of the demand, I am going to write a book. But because you ask so nicely, I give you some basic ideas. But make sure when my book is published, you faster go buy it, okay? Otherwise I will send some of my kah kia to come 'visit' you. Okay.

First thing is you are very the lucky to have have a powderful daddy who owned this business to pass down to you, otherwise chin kang kor one. Nowsaday very hard to start a company because of unfair competition by all these other fambly-owned businesses. (To everybody else who don't have such fambly connections, you all better faster give up and start looking for jobs in Australia .)

First thing first, you must take care of your daddy - give him a title like 'Sifu' or, in MBA language, 'mentor'. Oso, don't forget to reward the stooge your father put in place to run the company before you came of age. Maybe can give him your daddy's former title, but make sure he only gets the title and none of the perks that came with it. Cannot boh tua boh suay, corright not?

Now to the business - very important this one. You must make sure that you control the money, because cash is king, what. That's why in Chinese restaurants, a fambly member always sits at the cash register. So, not only must you be the CEO, you must be in charge of finance as well, i.e. the CFO.

For exampur (and exampur only, ah) if the business is a country, become the Prime Minister AND Finance Minister. You can put the loyal old ah pek who warm the seat for you a member of the board (maybe can make him 'Chairman') but make sure he knows his limits. You must also staff his team with your kaki lang. Also make sure the Board only makes suggestions and recommendations, but you make final decision. To make things easier, put your wife in charge of all the diversified fambly holding companies, with control over the subsidiaries as well as the investments in other companies.

If you are a classic Chinese businessman, your wife is probably not a very good manager or maybe she a bit suay and lose a lot of money before, or like to anyhow buy nonsense. So you must have lots of yes-men and sar-kah tzuas in your company. These people will be there to take the blame when she cock up. Also she can take the credit and be promoted whenever they get things right. If you got a younger brother, put him in charge of the largest subsidiary, the fambly cash-cow that makes the profits for your enterprise.

Again, you must not forget your father. He should be the grand Chairman of the secret company that actually controls all the assets, invested offshore, or deposited in secret banking accounts worldwide. Important, hor: under no circumstances must you make the operations of this company known to your shareholders. Pick auditors and accountants who are loyal to you.

Maybe you got a former jaga? Make him the 'guardian' of these assets. He should be loyal enough. If not, you can always slap the mama bugger. If skarly other independent directors question the value of the sets, tell them they must wait long-long because it will take many, many man-years to calculate.

Then retire them quietly. Maybe post them to head your Patpong branch. As for security, you must have the cooperation of a trusted gang to do your dirty work. Like 'Band of Brothers' but in your case, the brothers must be the 'blood'-type. These people will help you sng seow and do enforcement with chao kah people. But must also keep up with the times. Bicycle chains, breaking peoples' legs, hanging pigs heads on their doors etc. are a bit the old-fashioned oreddy. Nowsaday, all bullying and intimidation is done through the legal process, for exampur, by suing your enemies for defamation or something and bankrupting them. More sheebilised and cleaner than having blood and dead bodies all over the place. So make sure you also got a team of lawyers that are loyal to you.

Maybe you are lucky, and your fambly also own a law firm, better still. But what happens if the other side also got lawyers? No problem. Just make sure you have judges on your side.

The best is if you got an old fambly friend who is a senior judge. If your father knew his business, he early-early oreddy take care of that. As for the police, dun worry. Go find a relative, for exampur, an uncle who used to work with the force, is good enough. You also need other security people but give them a respectable title, call them a 'department' like International Services Department (ISD) or something, and adopt modern marketing techniques for developing trust and cooperation with business partners or competitors like the use of high-tech surveillance and air-conditioning for example. You can sabo competitors by labeling them as 'Communists', but just be careful you don't do that with the mainland Chinese, OK? They dun like it. People who used to work for you in these security departments can also hepchu do your PR work by working for you in the newspapers or TV stations, so instead of reporting TO you, they can report good things FOR you.

Remember, 'PR' are the first two letters of the word 'propaganda'. Well, this is only a short summary of what should already be done. As for what happens next, you must buy my book to find out more. But you can take some tips from me. Keep to the basics. Drugs are good business, just call it 'pharmaceuticals' and you are all set for the 21st century. Don't forget other traditional samseng activities like gambling, which is always profitable, so big projects like starting a casino, should also be on the top of your list of priorities. One final word of advice - your fambly business may already have some established big customers and trading partners, like some really big-shot towkays, and you must not do anything to sabo those relationships.

If some of these partners are already in some kind of dispute, for example, one big firm threatening a smaller spin-off and competitor for being too 'independent' or donno what, you MUST NOT take sides. Stay far, far away. Don'tch even visit the smaller company, even if it's for 'personal' reasons. Otherwise you will be hantam by both parties, they will call you all sorts of CB names and then you really kena sai.

So, congratulations, you have arrived. Don't forget to pay yourself a good salary - a million dollars at least, so I can get a good 'cut' for future advice on your business.


Seriously, with the recent loss, will Towkay now consult Ah Beng to teach him how to get all the sai out of the way of AIM. If sai sticks until 2016, very chialat. Even yes-men and sar-kah tzuas will find it difficult to unAIM.

Pay Back Time Is Such A Bitch!

PAP should now know that payback time is such a bitch! More so for the Chairman of Party with the infamy of "Rotten Fruit Seller".

The atherosclerotic plaque  in my artery leading to my heart did not give way. The ecstasy was overwhelming and I am most grateful that my damaged heart is still pumping fine. The scene at Hougang Avenue 5 especially at the coffee shop at Block 322 after the announcement by Yam Ah Mee  blew my mind! The chance meeting with a Professor and passing him the recycled banner was a bonus!

It was like celebrating Merry Christmas, Hari Raya, Deepavali, Chinese New Year when I was young, acing an exam, winning Malaysia Cup (in the 70s) and having an orgasm all at the same time!

I thank my fellow Singaporeans of Punggol East for having the courage to use their votes to let Lee Hsien Loong and his PAP team know that all is not well in Singapore. Enough is enough! Picking dead leaves off the grating of 'longkang' and throwing the leaves thereafter against the wall shows the nature of what the PAP party stands for. In one word it is:  'WAYANG'! = ACTING!

By now Lee Hsien Loong should wake up from his slumber to know that Singaporeans perceive PAP as nothing but "People's Acting Party" cum "People's Arrogant Party". If he is still asleep, come 2016, it may be too late! If he is not willing to get down, really get down to be with the people, he will lose it all [Video Link]

Yeah, it's after 5am of 27 Jan 2013 that this blog is put up. I hope you get the drift because the featured video started before 10pm.

I'm not concerned about PAP losing the majority in Parliament in 2016. Rather, I'm worried and scared shit that the unhappiness, the frustration and the sense of hopelessness of Singaporeans will lead to turmoil not unlike what we see in other countries like Egypt and Syria. Funnily, the turmoil may be initiated by new citizens rather than born-and-bred Singaporeans! The recent bus strike teaches me so.

If the 'buying and fixing' continues ad nauseam (solving problems with pork barrel money) the future of our children and our grandchildren are at stake. We do not need nepotism. We do not need toady and sychophant. We need truth. We need honesty. We need transparency. We need sincerity and human kindness.

Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Hey, I do not want to receive a letter from any high falutin' lawyer that I should not say this in my blog and apologise for what I blogged, but AIMgate is telling me something that all is not well in Singapore!

Where I am concerned, PAP, WP, SDP, SDA, RP and whatever party is fine with Singaporeans as long as the party especially its leadership has the core values to be what it needs to be.

The scare that PAP so often throws at us is that with more opposition members in parliament, with more checks and balances, Singapore would freeze! Geez, I'd rather be freezed than be treated like dafts with spurs in my hides, oblivious to the money that I have in CPF and be ripped off by the exorbitant prices of HDB flats! Which till this day has screwed my mind with this English word called 'SUBSIDY'. Just what the fook is subsidised housing? Where HDB  and their out-sourced contractors can make enough money to the extent that they can give you discount up to 15%?? when cooling measures are called?

The current conditions have shown that the power that is could be beyond redemption for making a mockery of national service (with their obscene salaries) and its disregard for its ordinary folks with its reluctance to implement minimum wage scheme. The GINI reading is a real shame!

Enough of my thoughts at the early morning after an orgasmic journey to Hougang to celebrate LIFE, NATIONHOOD and COURAGE in a little red dot which has cheated us of of our savings and treat us with contempt. When I pay tax according to constitution, I pay tax. Please, but please don't mess me up with unilateral CPF regulations that deprived me of the money I slogged for with my blood, sweat and tears. And please, Ng Eng Hean, I do not use my CPF money after 55 to fook Indonesian prostitutes or look for new sex partners in Batam! [Link]

Yes, payback time can be a real bitch!

Meanwhile, may Singaporeans, especially the 54% of Punggol East residents, celebrate the joy that my fellow citizens in Hougang and I had on having another voice in parliament. A first world parliament I might add, to speak for us, the ordinary folks of Singapore!

Folks who may not own a car or pick up leaves from gratings of longkangs after heavy rain!

Peace be with you!
