Important decision on Singapore Election

The Past in Singapore

Remembered those days in the 60’s where we were living in kampong and staying in a room with 10 people. Though it was quite a squeeze for us as a family but then it was still comfortable. The entertainment we got were playing marbles, catching spiders, flying kites, top spin, catching, etc. It was really fun for children at our time during those days. We were kind of carefree and most of our time were spent outdoor with plenty of activities. Then we learnt that the Government started to build HDB flats which was a great idea since it would be able to cater of more people and better staying conditions. It was in the 70’s before we could afford to move into HDB flat. Thumbs up for this!


In 1985, Singapore experienced its first post-independence recession. To beat the recession, the government introduced a slew of cost-cutting measures such as reductions in employer contributions to the Central Provident Fund and Skills Development Fund; wage restraint for two years; rebates on personal, corporate and property taxes as well as government fees; and loans with lower interest rates. Public development spending was increased and a venture capital fund was set up. The government also adopted a policy of privatisation and deregulation to establish the private sector as the new driver for economic growth. The Singapore economy made a swift recovery in mid-1986. By the second quarter of that year, Singapore posted a growth of 1.2 percent, which increased to 3.8 percent in the third quarter. The recession was the first test for the second-generation leaders led by Goh Chok Tong, who was appointed First Deputy Prime Minister after the 1984 parliamentary general election.

That is what we appreciate of our Government who did a great job for all Singaporeans to move forward in bad times.

The Present in Singapore

We are now all living comfortably in HDB flat and having our own family with children. And having the transport system improving like the MRT system which makes our lives much easier and comfortable.

The network was planned to be constructed and opened in stages, even as plans had already indicated the decision for two main arterial lines. The North South line was given priority because it passed through the Central Area that has a high demand for public transport. The Mass Rapid Transit Corporation (MRTC)—later renamed SMRT Corporation—was established on 14 October 1983 and took over the roles and responsibilities of the former provisional Mass Rapid Transit Authority. On 7 November 1987, the first section of the North South line started operations, consisting of five stations over six kilometres. Within a year, 20 more stations had been added to the network and a direct service existed between Yishun and Lakeside stations, linking up Central Singapore to Jurong in the west by the end of 1988. The direct service was eventually split into the North South and East West lines after the latter’s completion of the eastern sector to Pasir Ris. By the end of 1990, the Branch line has further linked Choa Chu Kang to the network while the inauguration of Boon Lay station on 6 July 1990 marked the completion of the initial system two years ahead of schedule.

We now are having more places of interests where it attracts visitors from all over the world. We can see how our Government has transformed our tiny red dot city into a place where people want to visit. We are indeed proud to be Singaporeans and having such an effective Government to run our country. Of course we must not be quick to blame whenever something goes wrong as we have to consider that Government is also human like us. Humans are bound to make mistakes once a while but learning from it will be a good lesson as we move forward. We just need to understand that every decision made should be after a much thorough consideration of its pros and cons before implementation. We cannot really expect everything that is done to be perfect all the times without failures as certain factors play a part of the outcome. As long as it is made with much consideration for the people of Singapore, we will totally support it.

The future in Singapore

We need a strong Government to bring us into the future. Therefore, we have to endorse our 100% support in order for them to work for the people of Singapore. All we can say is that this is not a very rosy job to take up as there are lots of sacrifice and commitment need in order to rule Singapore and bringing us forward to meet all sorts of challenges ahead. We like to show our thanks for all that had been done and hope to continue seeing the best outcome for all Singaporeans with our full support in our Government to do their jobs. Thumbs up for you all!

Lastly, as the COVID-19 pandemic is still far from over, please abide to the simple rules that can help each and everyone of us to be safe. Be sure that you wear your mask & do social distancing while in public. Also don’t forget to wash your hands with soap frequently especially before touching your eyes, nose and mouth. It is better safe than sorry since prevention is always better than cure itself. Help yourself as you can help others to avoid getting the infection.

Be blessed with good health and take care of your loved ones!

Wise choice on Singapore election

Words of wisdom by LKY

We all miss you and hope that we will continue with a strong Government to bring us forward into the future where it benefits the younger generations like what you had done for us.

In view of the current coming election, we were listening to this inspiring words from the late father Lee Kuan Yew’s speech. It is time again we should have our candidates to rally our Nation and have the Mandate to Rule as spoke by him in the video. We need good and strong Government as we can move forward into the future for the next 10 years and more where our younger generations can truly benefit like us older generations had gone through in life. It is time to give our true strong support with a clear mind without deterrent with emotion. As we all understand that one can easily be influenced by emotions and thus making the wrong decision which will affect our livelihood.

We should all be clear about the decision to make and decide the direction the future we wish to look forward as to vote the right candidates and give our strong support of endorsement. Understand what kind of mandate of future plans and solutions to guide the people of Singapore into the future. Some might be angry of certain things in life that may not go well but this should never be affecting your choice of choosing the right Government to support our future. It is critical as not to make this mistake since it didn’t goes well with some other countries. We need to show a clear support for the Government we want and let them help us moving into the brighter future. Don’t let emotions overrule your decision of having a good Government.

Back to our COVID-19 situation which is pretty much under control as in Phase 2 but with the unknown sources still lurking among us, we should never let our guards down since it can possibly be another outbreak when we get to be complacent. Continue with all the preventive measures like wearing masks & do social distancing while in public. Also remember to wash your hands often especially before you touch your eyes, nose and mouth since it can infect you.

Just need to be a little Kiasu and Kiasi about this COVID-19 pandemic in order to keep yourself & loved ones to be safe. Since there are still unknown sources that maybe due to some people be asymptomatic, we are happy to hear that Singapore Government is providing us a gadget that will be able to improve the contact tracing via bluetooth whenever we are out in public. It is great if you happen to be around someone who is infected and you will be informed so as you can do self quarantine and avoid contact with your loved ones just in case. This is one example of having a good Government to take initiative of providing solution to resolve issue. Of course people may complain of the mistake made but we are all humans so making them will be kind of unavoidable. Of course, solution is provided at that point of time after much consideration which may be the right choice or wrong. It is only after implementation then we will know the result. One should never fear to make mistake as it is important to learn from it and move forward. That’s very important!

Take care against COVID-19 and be blessed with good health!

Future of Singapore in your hands

We are happy of our past where Lee Kuan Yew had built Singapore as what it is now. We are also grateful for the present as our Government has been doing what is right for the people. Now we look forward into the future for our younger generations to benefit with the right mindset of guidance in building Singapore as a nation.

With the continuing rise of COVID-19 worldwide, we are fortunate that after several different approach of measures, we are considered to be in good hands. But we must never be complacent since there are still unknown sources that still lurking in the community which can be a disaster when we let our guards down. Overall, we are most happy to say that our Government has done a good job with measures against COVID-19 though facing some hiccups at the initial stages. Let face it, we are all humans therefore mistakes can happen but important thing is to learn from it and be better. We always remembered the young days when we learnt to walk and we did fell several times but never gave up and continue to stand up to walk. For every failure, it will be a lesson learnt to be better the next time.

In life, we need to look at the bigger picture and into the future for what we want it to be. From the past, present and to the future (still unknown), we are truly grateful for what the Government has brought us to be where we are now. Personally, what we look at the Government will be having a vision of the future down the road in 10 or more years as they help to build our country. It has to be a step by step foundation towards a brighter and better future for the younger generations.

Our views are that the positions in Government are not that rosy as they have to make alot of sacrifices in their lives in order to achieve what we are having right now. We like to congratulate and giving our thanks to them for making Singapore as what it is right now and further down the road. It is never an easy job for those who are taking up this job in the Government.

Since election is around the corner, we hope that each and everyone of us to consider wholeheartedly what you want for your future and making your vote counts. It is an important job for you to make the right decision of who can bring Singapore into the future for the next 10 or more years as it will transform itself with the effort from the right Government who will manage it. Be clear headed as who you want to lead us in the future and not letting your emotion hinders the right decision. We need people who can undertake this important position with the right mindset to do the job. Think over with your head and not to be stirred up with emotion as we need the right people to guide and build a better nation into the future. One has to have future plans as how we are going ahead for the next few years as it helps the younger generations to benefit with it.

Lastly, we sincerely hope everyone will remain vigilant against COVID-19 and continue to wear masks & social distancing while in public. Also not forgetting to wash hands with soap frequently especially before touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Help yourself as you can help others to avoid getting this infection.

Be blessed with good health and take care of your loved ones!
