Yesterday, Member of Parliament for Tampines GRC, Baey Yam Keng apologized in parliament for his comment that Singaporeans should reflect upon themselves when he spoke, some weeks ago regarding the Sun Xu ‘s news (comments).
In case readers do not follow with the recent news, Sun Xu, a PRC on Singapore’s Ministry of Education scholarship made a comment some weeks ago that there are more dogs than people in Singapore (from what I have read). His comment sparked a massive outcry in the internet and Sun Xu finally apologized.

Tay Ping Hui as Best Actor in Star Awards 2012, Sharon Au as a likely PAP MP?

I believe Tay Ping Hui will clinch the Best Actor Award in the Star Awards this year. Tay Ping Hui started his acting career 15 years ago in 1997. His first TV show was as co-actor together with Thomas Ong. I believe Tay will clinch this Best Actor Award this year finally.

Extremely Hot weather

These few days, the weather has been especially hot! Even at night, there are hardly any winds to cool the blaze. I do not like hot weather. In Singapore, the hot weather is made even unbearable by the high humidity of our climate.

of Sex and Dogs

Singapore is awashed in the alleged sex incidents of public figures like the previous chiefs of SCDF and CNB -Peter Lim Sin Pang and Ng Boon Gay respectively- and the alleged extra-martial affairs of Yaw Sin Leong since late last month. Now these few whole episodes of extra-martial affairs of high profile figures begulfing Singapore finally culminate in a likely by-election in Hougang with the expulsion of Yaw Sing Leong from the Workers' Party.

Recently, as reported in Singapore's leading online socio-political website, TR Emeritus, a China PRC student who is on our local MOE Scholarship has made an offensive comment on Singaporeans and this has sparked a massive outcry among Singaporeans as reported.

These past few weeks, we read of public servants in the Home Team and Ministry of Education found guilty of sexual misconduct and among them there are senior public officials: Lim Sin Pang, Ng Boon Gay and the prinicipal of a primary school.

The role of Internet in the Online Sex Scandal and Alleged Corruption of SCDF and CNB


As I flipped over MyPaper this morning, I was not surprised to read the continuing report of the article on the busting of the online sex syndicate and the profile of the client involved. Since the start of the report, the media spotlight and public scrutiny has been trained on that particular principal of this incident and by now whose name may have been revealed through some detailed searches online now.  

I am even more surprised that the article in Mypaper mentioned that there was another senior public official, allegedly from the Home Team who may also be involved as a client of the syndicate. The same article further surprises me as it mentions that a famous personality from a reputable or well-known family who is involved in advocating some civil movements may also be involved as a client of the syndicate.
After some weeks, I am surprised that the identity of the IT woman executive allegedly to be behind the Peter Lim Sin Pang and Ng Boon Gay incident has not been revealed online though a pixellated photo of an alleged woman could be found online. Before the media releases the photo of the IT executive woman behind the SCDF and CNB corruption case and the photos of the high profile principal, senior public officials, famous personality and others, I believe netizens will be busy hard at work these days, trawling through Google, Yahoo, MSN, Facebook, Twitter for any digital trace which may give some clues to the revelation of the identities of these personalities behind these two recent cases involving senior public officials and government scholars.
Nobody wants to be in the shoes of Peter Lim Sin Pang, Ng Boon Gay, the principal, the senior public officials and the rich and famous involved in these two recent incidents, but every Singaporean is curious enough to find out who these Singaporeans are. That basic and primate needs of curiosity manifest into hours of searches online by netizens for the names of those involved.
Very coincidentally, the two cases relate to IT: in the case of the alleged corruption of SCDF and CNB, the cases involves around the tendering procedure related to IT in the two government statutory boards. In the latter case of the online sex scandal, it is IT on which the online sex scandal thrives. However in both these two cases, it is IT for which netizens leverage to find out more about the people behind the two cases!
 I think this is not Kaypoh-ism but curiosity. With just the click of a mouse, the typing of a phrase in the search bar of Google, technology gives Singapore netizens a good reason to be curious.

Yaw Shin Leong , Steve Tan Peng Hoe. Jack Neo, Tiger Woods

I believe Yaw Shin Leong should really come out and tell Singaporeans whether he really has an affair with a fellow party colleague. The resignation of Yaw Shin Leong seems to fuel public's speculation that Yaw did really have an affair. If Yaw does not have an affair, he should really tell Singaporeans so.

Principal in online sex scandal

I read from the newspapers that the principal involved in the online sex scandal or online sex trade resigned as a primary school teacher in Dec 2011 and is famous in Singapore sporting fraternity. Though the media has not released the name of the principal involved in the online sex trade, a forumer has suggested who this prinicipal may be from thread 35 on this post on Sammyboy. More reading and photos in this webpage. However, as responsible Singaporeans, let us wait for the actual identity of the prinicipal to be published by the Straits Times before jumping to conclusion. But my question is why are the forumers in the webpages I have referenced in this blog post of mine sound so convicing?

Singapore Budget 2012 or Review of Singapore Civil Service: which one is more important?

Singapore Budget 2012 will be delivered by Finance Minister next week; however I find that budget 2012 will be overshadowed by the slew of unprofessional cases in Singapore Civil Service till I thought that the government should examine and review what is going on or wrong in Singapore Civil Servants first as it is more important than the budget (the budget will be executed by civil servants hence it is good to reassure the public of the integrity of Singapore Civil Service which in recent weeks have been giving Singaporeans news like those of Lim Sin Pang, Ng Boon Gay, more teachers having sex with students and an online vice syndicate alleged to be run by a school prinicipal and other civil servants.

Police investigating online vice syndicate involving public civil servants, what happens to Singapore's civil service? Corruption, cheating, online syndicate, teachers having sex with students! Government Scholars should have a pay cut too!

Another shocking incident which tarnished the image of Singapore's squeaky clean public service after the alleged corruption of the two chiefs of Singapore Civil Defence Force and Central Narcotics Bureau: this time, public servants are allegedly involved in the running of an online vice syndicate and among the alleged public servants is a school prinicpal!

Living in Singapore

Living in this modern country called Singapore where money weighs heavily on the minds of many Singaporeans due to the high cost of living, where there are close to 80,000 people having a net-worth of US $1 million, it can indeed be very stressful living on this tiny island.
