Many Thanks to all readers who have contributed, for those who have not contributed, do not wait, its your chance now!
Here is our FIRST reader's contributions, I titled it as Singapore mad men and women as no title is given, hope reader Tan find its okay. Here is Brother Tan's story:
"Dear author of Singapore Short Stories, many Thanks for opening your blog to all of us Singaporeans.
I just want to point out the case when an insane old man attacked Member of Parliament Seng Han Tong. MP Seng was seriously injured as the attacker was not sane. I am worried as sometimes on the street, I did observe one or two men behaving in a insane manner. I asked myself whether these mad men or women receive medical help. Why were they not inside MPH (Mad People's Hospital). Were they roaming the street as part of their integration to society? I do not want to be the next Seng Han Tong, thus I would stay clear of these mentally unsound people. I pity them but I also do not want to be near to them".

Hi Eileen,

Many Thanks for leaving your comments on my blog.

I am sorry to hear of your experience.

I can see more and more mentally unsound people in Singapore, though they behave like normal people but I still can tell.
