Has the current ruling party, the People’s Action Party (PAP), done its job or has it hurt Singaporeans instead?

Over the next two weeks, I will be compiling the past articles that I have written into the different thematic areas, so that you can see for yourselves if the PAP has helped Singaporeans or if it has actually make lives more difficult for Singaporeans.

In today’s article, the focus is on EDUCATION.

(1) PM Lee: Every School Is A Good School? Really? (This Will Disgust You)

Slide13

So, PM Lee might say that, “every school is a good school”. Then, what happened? Why is the reality so different?

Perhaps Vice-Principal Pushparani Nadarajah had hit the nail on the head – do “our leaders and top officers” even…

It’s raining here in Bangkok
Pitter patter puttering
The sky as overcast as me
Has lost the song I cued

It’s pouring here in Bangkok
Titter tatters stuttering
It covers all enveloping
Time to say Adieu

The 4th question asks how Singaporeans will vote at this upcoming election. The last question looks at the support for the opposition parties among Singaporeans. The last 5 questions are questions on the demographic profile of the respondents to see if they are representative of the general electoral population in Singapore.

Keeping Manipulative People from Using You – Seeing the Situation Rationally

Tiffany, you are a bitch.
There….. I said it. lol

Originally posted on Gentle Kindness :

One thing to keep in mind about manipultors and abusers, is that they do not always tell you the truth. We want to believe they are, because we do not want to think someone is lying to us.

One thing you can do is to look at their situation more rationally,  rather than emotionally.

Here are some questions that will help you to evaluate the situation.  All of these will not apply to every situation. I tried to cover more than one scenario, with the list.

1. Is their situation that they are asking for help with, really as desperate as they are telling you?

2. Is there really no one else to help them?

3. Have they actually asked others for help, if they are telling you that you are the only one who can save them?

4. Is it as emotionally meaningful to them as they are saying…

i know not when the silence comes
i know not how defences bow
to call upon and muster up
assemble, gather, collect myself

tides will ebb and skies will clear
yet dank and dark; all so near
soused in stupor there i stand
dowsed in prayer here i am

hope for dreams to take away
this lonely breath, abstract and slay
but night is long with endless days
with none to harken as i age

i watch and wait and witness this
i supplicate, i seek my fate
and as i wake, the skies are clear
and by its own, my end is here

palms in hand, ever so tight
ever so lightly, ever so right
fingers running up your face
to feel your closeness, to know its pace

in your slumber I await
stripped of words, trust in fate
in sight you still remain the same
heartbeats touch, never shall change

I watch you sleep, a moment so rare
to touch you, hold you, in my care
and to this day I hold so dear
in times of past, episodically clear

in my hands, i do not know
in my heart, i’ve lost control
on these thoughts, in its time
shades of hours pass the night

white shirt on with tussled hair
out I go; no time to spare
back thru town, central square
drinking pass in my despair

so hear me shout, watch me cry
all of this, kept deep inside
pawns of fate, slaves of age
yet only for your hand I wait

MARUAH’s Statement on Defamation Law and the Case Against Mr Roy Ngerng

MARUAH, a Human Rights Non-Governmental Organisation, objects to government leaders using the Defamation Law to institute defamation lawsuits against its critics, regardless of whether the offending statement is defamatory or not.

We make these remarks as the court assesses the damages that Mr Roy Ngerng has to pay for the remarks made against Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong. In May 2014 Mr Ngerng, a blogger, was sued by Mr Lee Hsien Loong, whom we assume is acting in his private capacity and not as the Prime Minister. Mr Lee’s lawyers demanded that Mr Ngerng remove the article in question, issue an apology on his blog, and offer compensation to Mr Lee. Mr Ngerng acceded to all the demands, including removing four other articles, and made an offer of S$5,000 as compensation to Mr Lee. Mr Lee’s lawyers, however, dismissed the amount as ‘derisory’, and commenced legal action on 30 May…
