I think it is all fiction. This can never happen in Singapore. From the speeches we hear from the PM, MPs and from what we read on MSM and see on the Singapore TV, Singapore is rich, people are happy and all with full stomachs. what was written by Trisha can only happen in places like Ethopia, Somalia, Cambodia....

Come on Trisha, pull the other one, it has bells on. Confine your fictitious story to the story books, stop making Singaporeans feel guilty, especially when they tuck into their Christmas dinners with their $200 bottle of wine.

I have been to Singapore numerous times and I have not encountered any starving Singaporeans. All I see are large shiny BMWs, Mecedes, 4x4s, and all smiling faces. Where are all the sad and starving faces??? When I go to see my friends in Sixth Av and Holland Road they all appear happy and carefree. Please tell me where to go to see the pathetic people you speak of.

My thought's:
The first post is probably a tongue-in-cheek, since it said the words,

"From the speeches we hear from the PM, MPs and from what we read on MSM and see on the Singapore TV, Singapore is rich, people are happy and all with full stomachs."

Any reader of online news sites will know that it is not exactly the nice picture that the MSM painted; there are still some poor around.

The second post seems to be the view of a foreigner. If they want to see more of these, they might go to the older blocks of flats, those rental flat types in those older estates.

hi abao,

this is a good start to a blog. one of the things that i am looking forward to is to bring together several blogs under one umbrella. that would give viewers more choices and greater impact. it is like how ibm started with the pc against a single platform apple. one is to welcome all and the other is exclusive.

in the internet, it is the inclusive and open platform that eventually conquers the world. trying to rely on one single person's effort is going to be tough.

keep it going.
