This is what happens when you elect a non-politician to be POLITICIAN.

This fellow below is an eye surgeon.

The cocksucker is also a recently elected MP of Singapore. Singapoean voters knew him about 9 days before they put him into the parliament.

This is what he said to a reporter recently [and later tried very hard to pull his foot from his bleeding mouth]

"Member of Parliament Lim Wee Kiak of the Nee Soon group representation constituency (GRC) defended ministerial salaries by saying a reasonable payout helped maintain "dignity" for politicians.

He was quickly slammed by netizens, many of whom pointed out in various posts on the Web that "dignity" should not be justified by salary alone.
The multi-million dollar pay of ministers was a hot-button issue in Singapore's recent General Election, which saw the ruling People's Action Party win 81 out of 87 seats but at a significantly lower share of the total votes.
Following the results, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong announced the formation of a committee to review the "basis and level of political salaries". Any pay changes would take effect from 21 May this year.
"If the annual salary of the Minister of Information, Communication and Arts is only $500,000, it may pose some problems when he discuss policies with media CEOs who earn millions of dollars because they need not listen to the minister's ideas and proposals. Hence, a reasonable payout will help to maintain a bit of dignity," Dr Lim told LianHe ZaoBao in Chinese."
I parituclarly like the following responses from Singaporean neitzens slamming thier MP.
"Did he meant "Got money can talk louder"? Imagine our elected MP got this type of thinking! I was a Police Officer 10 years ago, earning really Peanut. So, do he meant I can't enforce law against anyone earning more than me? No member of public will need to listen to a Police Officer as they earn more? I am staying at Yishun, and was utterly sad to have such an MP.

Those voters of Nee Soon GRC, thanks for voting him in! I hope you all don't have repent for the next five years."

"Huh? Are you admitting that it is a bad example or are you claiming (or, as your sentence goes, admitting) that you have been quoted out of context? What is “it” a bad example of and what exactly is “it”?
In saying that you have been quoted out of context, you are suggesting that your words have been twisted to mean what they do not mean. However, when you claim to have been joking, it would seem more like you are saying you have been misinterpreted and people are taking your words too seriously when they are not meant to be taken seriously. That is not taking you out of context.
Assuming that you have indeed been quoted out of context or misinterpreted, why are you admitting that “it is a bad example”? If you have given a bad example, then perhaps you have not been misinterpreted or misquoted. Rather, it would simply be that you have not communicated the intended point to the intended audience well and it would be a matter of you not representing yourself properly instead of others getting you wrong. Your clarification contradictorily combines self-exoneration and self-blame.
Based on your clarification, it seems that you do still hold the belief that a salary of $500,000 per annum is too low for a minister even though it is an amount that some of the most impoverished citizens under your care will take decades to earn (without even factoring in inflation? You still seem to be implying that “low” salaries will affect the dignity of ministers even though it is perfectly reasonable to say (without asserting that ministers should be lowly paid) that any lowly paid person, minister or not, can be dignified in the face of anyone in the world. Because even the most lowly paid person is earning an honest living. On the other hand, one wonders how dignified a group of people, with an illustrious history of helping themselves to million-dollar salaries because they have the power to decide, can be."

The moral of the story:

1) Don't talk about politics sounding like an eye surgeon after you've become a politician, people will call you a fucking moron.
2) If you keep your fucking mouth shut, people won't think you're stupid.
Don't believe me, ask Nik Aziz, The Menteri Besar of Kelantan.

Stupid Singaporean Deserves to Pay..

More restaurants fine for no-shows
Decrease text sizeIncrease text size
More restaurants fine for no-shows
   Local restaurants, especially high-end ones, are now imposing penalties for last-minute cancellations or no-shows.

[Above: PS Cafe sends a  text message to diners who have made a reservationinforming them that a $50 diner penalty will be imposed for no-shows.]

Singapore, May 13, 2011
IF YOU booked a table at restaurant and do not turn up, be careful, you might be charged a fee for that.
More local restaurants, especially the high-end ones, are now imposing fines for last-minute cancellations or no-shows, reported the Straits Times.
Typically, large groups of diners are asked to fill up a form with credit card details to confirm a reservation. They will be charged for complete no-shows or if they cancel within 24-hours of their reservation.

So far, fine-dining outlets such as Cut, Gunther's, Garibaldi, Waku Ghin, The Line and Ember have taken up this measure in a bid to ensure that patrons commit to their bookings.

Restaurants also hope this move will help to prevent food wastages and lost revenue on the restaurant's end.
Fine-dining outlet Cut's general manager, Adam Crocini, said: "It is a form of insurance so that people will take the time to be considerate and call back if they are unable to come."

"You base your staffing and preparations in the kitchen on the reservations, and when 10 or 20 per cent of your guests don't show up, it's a significant amount and affects the running of the business," he added. Cut charges groups of 10 or more only in the event of a complete no-show.

French restaurant, Gunther, took a harder stance for groups of five or more. Each is charged $240 if the party cancels within 24 hours and $350 for complete no-shows.

Another restaurant Garibaldi, which serves Italian cuisine, charges $30 per-diner for cancellation within 24 hours and $60 for no-show. It does not charge if only part of the group turns up.

While the no-show policy varies with restaurants, not all are clear about their rules.

ST reported that teacher Victor Seng has a rude shock halfway through dinner [Why halfway? Why not before they order? At least they have an option to leave the restaurant on the spot] at PS Cafe, when he and his friends were asked by the restaurant to pay $50 for the no-show of one diner. [Are you fucking kidding me?]

Despite having been informed by text message about the penalty beforehand, they thought it would not apply if the rest turned up. Thus the group went on with their dinner plans without notifying the restaurant about the sudden pullout of one person.

In the end, after negotiating with a waiter, they were asked to order one more main course in lieu of the fine. [If I refuse to pay, what the fuck is he going to do??? Call the police? I would fucking slap the waiter if he dares even to suggest that to me!] However, PS Cafe manager Simon Ho said such a policy, which was implemented last year, only applies to groups of 15 or more.

With remorse, Mr Ho told ST that: "Investigations show that a staff member was using the policy for smaller groups without my knowledge. A mistake was made." [Lan chiao, remorse my ass. Was the extra charge refunded?? Did the fucking restaurant manager apologize to the group??]

Consumers Association of Sinapore executive director Seah Seng Choon said in the same report: "As long as the rules are clear, it is up to the consumers to decide whether they want to be subjected to them."

Such policies are common in popular restaurants in countries like Australia and the United States.

Someone please tell me how many restaurants are there in Singapore?

  1. If they do this kind of shit to you, why can't you go to another restaurant??? You will shit all of it out no matter what you eat. So, don't be a fucking moron.
  2. If the food is so fucking good, why would the COCKSUCKERS cancel? So why can't the restaurants improve on their food rather than creating bad will?
  3. Opening a restaurant is just like any businesses, there are risks. And this is a stupid way of managing risk. Did someone put a fucking gun to your head and ask you to open a restaurant??
So, if you are stupid enough to give money to these type of restaurants, don't complain when they don't treat you right. ok?

Singapore's GE just over - some random thoughts by an FT (Foreign Talent)

Just this past weekend, Singapore had a general election.

Look at this cocksucker below. No, he wasn't a candidate. His boss, George Yeo, was. More on George later.

His name is Bilahari Kausikan  (Second Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Foreign Affairs). It sounded a lot like "Kao Si Kuan". In Cantonese, this means: "Shit Stirring Stick", as in someone who likes to stir things up and cause trouble. 

According to Wikileaks, the cocksucker reportedly told US Deputy Secretary of Defence for East Asia David Sedney described in a cable dated September 2008 that: "A lack of competent leadership is a real problem for Malaysia."

Below is Ms. Tin Pei Ling, she was just voted in this weekend as a member of parliament.

Would Mr. Bila-You-Tongeng-Saya-Fuck-Face care to comment on the quality of the leadership in the parliament of Singapore??? "I don't know what to say???"

This is George Yeo. He was the Minister of Foreign Affairs.

Is he using the Shaolin Tiger Claw technique?

George was voted out as an MP which means he cannot be Foreign Minister anymore. I guess he needs to practice more on his kungfu. Maybe we can now get more money selling water to Singapore... just kidding.

This is a scary thought: Will Bila-Fuck-Face become the acting Minister of Foreign Affairs?

No Difference With Or WithoutPrintE-mail
by Kee Thuan Chye   
PRIME Minister Najib Razak has changed his tack in relating to the Chinese electorate. He seems to have discarded his role of the charmer who spun 1Malaysia hogwash to win Chinese hearts and minds. He is now threatening them instead.

He’s telling them that if they don’t support Barisan Nasional (BN) at the next general election, they will not have representation in the Government. This is because Chua Soi Lek, the MCA president, has declared that his party will not accept government positions if they don’t get Chinese support.

Najib’s switch to a threatening mode shows that he’s desperate. He clearly must be after what has happened in the recent Sarawak state elections, when the Chinese dumped the Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP) in favor of the Opposition. Despite Najib’s 10-day campaign in the state, the Chinese there did not show him any face. They are simply fed-up with the corrupt BN Government and they want reform. But for BN, the loss of Chinese support, especially in Sarawak, with the possible spread to Sabah, could be crucial at the next general election.

Chua has since come forward to say that Najib was not issuing a threat but only making a “statement of fact” in response to the MCA’s proposed stand. But knowing the kind of pakat-pakat(conniving) politics practiced by BN, one is more likely to believe that Najib and Chua had both cooked up this ploy together right from the start – to supposedly strike fear in the hearts of the Chinese.

But should the Chinese be cowed? Should they worry if they had no representation in government – to be specific, the BN Government? Why should they? What has MCA (and Gerakan) representation in the Government done for them? Hasn’t Chua woken up to the fact that it is because the Chinese feel the MCA has been useless in BN that they dumped the party in 2008?

And as if to reaffirm the hopeless situation that both the MCA and Gerakan are in, the same day Najib issued his threat, Perkasa president Ibrahim Ali issued his own – warning the two parties to stop bringing up sensitive issues or risk having their candidates undermined at the next general election. By this, Ibrahim meant Perkasa would urge Malays not to vote for the MCA and Gerakan. He even insisted that both parties must defend the Malays and Islam before they should get Malay votes.

Of course, we can dismiss Perkasa as a minnow that appears bigger than it really is because its president has a loud mouth and exaggerates his own importance. But it is no less humiliating for the MCA and Gerakan to be publicly chided in this fashion. What’s more, big brother Umno has made no move to chide Perkasa back, which merely underscores the weakness of the lesser parties.

Should the Chinese support such weak parties? If the MCA and Gerakan were to remain in the BN Government after the next general election – and that’s assuming BN wins – they would merely be playing the same old second fiddle. Supporting them would probably just give them a chance to continue to get a share of the loot, like the MCA did in the PKFZ scandal. Why elect them for that purpose?

In any case, if the MCA wants to turn down government positions, that’s its own business. It has no right to put the onus on the Chinese or attempt to blackmail them.

Threats won’t work. Chua should know that. So should Najib. Former prime minister Abdullah Badawi issued the same threat on the eve of the 2008 general election; it was on the front page of mainstream newspapers. The Chinese didn’t give a damn; in fact, they were even more pissed off. Taib Mahmud did the same in the run-up to the Sarawak state elections. The Chinese told his coalition to go fly a kite.

If Najib wants to win back the Chinese, he has to take positive, radical measures. He has toassure them that the Government would be squeaky clean, that there would be no more rent-seeking, that the country’s institutions will be respected, that the Government will strictly follow the rule of law, that the Chinese would have a place under the Malaysian sun as is guaranteed by the Federal Constitution.

It will not be enough for him to merely say that he will attend to these things; he has to be seen to be doing it. Because talk is cheap. The reason the Chinese don’t buy his 1Malaysia drivel is that it’s precisely nothing but drivel. In reality, nothing has been done to make things better for them. And meanwhile, the corruption and the rent-seeking continue. The Chinese realize more and more that the taxes they pay are going to the wrong causes. But what are they getting in return? Has there even been an improvement in the quality of Malaysian life?

The MCA and Gerakan have failed them. They are as culpable in the corruption that has set this country back. Their leaders get shouted down each time they make a squeak about any issue that displeases Umno. They get insulted by Umno seniors like Nazri Aziz and Hishammuddin Hussein.

Why should the Chinese want any party to represent them that has no cojones?

In fact, the MCA is a reminder to them of what a disgrace it is to Chinese dignity. As for Gerakan, whenever a politically aware Chinese person says something about its president, Koh Tsu Koon, they would accompany it with spittle. And they don’t even have to be from Penang.

The greatest irony about Najib’s threat is that for one who espouses 1Malaysia, he should even have entertained the thought. A truly 1Malaysia government would not look at race in its appointment of ministers. It would serve all races, whether or not there are Chinese representatives among its Cabinet. And if indeed the MCA did pull out of government positions and Najib still craved to see Chinese faces at Cabinet meetings, he could still do what he has done before – appoint non-politicians, like he did Idris Jala. Or appoint Chinese from other BN parties. If they haven’t been duly elected, he could simply make them senators first. He’s not new at that game either.

So, whatever it is, the Chinese have nothing to worry about. With or without representation in government, there is no difference – they will still be as they are. Chua and his MCA can do what they like; it won’t matter anyhow. The Chinese will vote according to their conscience. After all, they have a saying: “It is better to die a hero than to survive in disgrace.” Perhaps the MCA should take note of that before the next general election.

Response to Online Slander that Aljunied PAP team is not compassionate

by Aljunied GRC on Wednesday, May 4, 2011 at 10:44am
We wish to clarify on the slander that has been viralling online, particularly on the accusation that we had pressed charges on a helpless, mentally handicapped resident who came to MPS in Serangoon North and slammed a chair on the door.

We were wrongly accused that not only that we had not been compassionate, also that we had pressed charges against the poor boy. We didn't press charges. The mother and son have been coming to MPS regularly and we had been helping them to get financial aids. We had continued to help after the incident and we will continue doing so.

We would like to urge residents and grassroots leaders to look out for those who require assistance but are hesitating to come forward to ask for help.

Now what the fuck is "viralling"? Hey I did my spell-check and all and I can't find diddly squat . "Viral" or "Virus" is not even a verb! So how the fuck did it all of a sudden have the right to have an "ing"??? 

Wouldn't it be better to say "spreading like virus" or "has gone viral"? Or better yet, use a standard term like "spreading like wild fire"?

Now what the fuck is "viralling"? You wonder why they lost.

Hey, I'm not an English professor but I can still structure a sentence properly. Sorry to say, Singaporean politicians are not much better than those assholes in UMNO, at least when it comes to expressing themselves.

Growth Dividend & Election

My wife called me and happily told me that she has received her Growth Dividend to the tune of S$600.00

That my friend is RM1,440.00!!!!!!! That is RM1,440.00 more than what the fucking UMNO has given me in my whole fucking life.

When I ask her who is she going to vote for this weekend, she replied without missing a beat: "Opposition!"

Note to PAP: I'm a FT. I'm neutral. Please don't punish me because my wife is not voting for you. Hahaha.
