Solid Siah. How about showing the unfiltered side of things? Not suitable to copy the leaders who sieve and dilute what they want to share.

I was taught [家家有本难念的经 'jia jia yu ben nan nian de ching' which translates to every family has problems.]

Your picture-perfect family could be uplifting and inspirational when the world sounded chaotic and frightening.

We anticipated a president who pushes the government to better the country and its people and not someone who is anti-PAP.

We anticipate a president who brings the country together not divide the country as ruling and oppos.

We anticipate a president who does not go against for the sake of opposing it.

Lastly, we anticipate a president who genuinely cares for its people.

When I was below my building looking up the display of SG flags have decreased.
I am not counting the ones put up by management or council members.

My mother in her sixties has been a super fan of PAP since Lee Kuan Yew's days. She has never
failed to put up the SG flag every year.
I asked why the flag was on her settee a few weeks ago. She replied that no one has put out yet.
I told her maybe others are thinking like her waiting.
She put out her flag.
Yesterday I saw the flag was back on the settee.
She said that she was embarrassed being the only flag in the whole block.

Tan Kin Lian - as it is you are not a President material. Please stop treating Sporeans like fools. You have already gotten your fat pay check from the Govt as NTUC chief. So stop trying your luck again!!!!

People tend to be skeptical of unrealistic promises when humans think that they can be God,

Daddy, Superman, and Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible all rolled into one. The only people

the world can have admiration eg are Steve Jobs, Warren Buffett, the Buddha, Mother Theresa

Jesus, Dalai Lama among others and Lee Kuan Yew. It is not their money, fame talent or skill.

It was the difference they made to the world on a global level. Their influence across

continents that were so powerful and transformative. What we have here is mainly just

$$$$$$$$$ Politics.

His exact words were he would only put himself forward if the other 2 candidates were disqualified so as to give Sporeans a likelihood to vote. It looks like now he is going against his promise. How to vote for someone like that? Yes, we are talking about the indecisive KL Tan. Fickle, say one thing do another.

It is about living and not just existing.
