Singaporeans 1 PAP 0

I gave a whooping shout of elation when I heard the results on the television last night.

First of all - congratulations to WP and their candidate Lee Lilian. Your face of a true-bred Singaporean heartlander, your 'I am just like you, struggling with current issues' identity and your 'down to earth' personality' struck a memorable chord with most of us. Kudos to you and your party's hard work!

Second - congratulations to Punggol-East residents for making a stand and choosing to voice out their discontentment through their votes. This is just a beginning.

Thirdly - This is a second straight loss by PAP since Hougang By-Election. And by some margin of votes to 'slap and wake them up'.

China 2 Singapore 0

Happy 2013 to you and your loved ones!

This entry has been in draft for quite some time. About time I publish it.

I think China has just handed Singapore's ass to her when the SMRT bus drivers went on strike. China knows how weak our labour laws are. Like they care about our laws anyway.
SMRT bus drivers refuse to go to work

SINGAPORE - More than 100 mainland Chinese bus drivers in Singapore refused to work on Monday.
The drivers, disgruntled over their pay from state-linked transport firm SMRT, refused to board a shuttle that was going to ferry them from their dormitory to a nearby depot.
After talks with SMRT management with police on standby, the protesting drivers said they would report for work on Tuesday.
