Well-deserved beating and burning! Long overdue!

2006 - Seng Han Thong punched


2009 - Seng Han Thong burnt



I salute you, heroes !
Well Done!
Good Job!

This is the unfortunate but inevitable consequence of refusing to instill democracy in Singapore - people are forced to act against the extreme grievance and grave injustice that they have suffered for years via violent means, and to overthrow their leaders via non-peaceful revolts.

If we had real democracy, this would most likely not have happened. And in the rare case that it does happen, I will not be here cheering the violent trouble-makers, as there will be legitimate and peaceful ways for them to voice their grievance to a free press or to change the government through the ballot box. Thus such violence cannot be condoned.

But as matter is now, I repeat, these 2 individuals are heroes!

If Singapore has riot one day resulting in death of locals and the leaving of foreign investors, it is the fault of the dictatorial PAP, not the rioters. And it will surely happen one day - it happened to all dictatorship in history. And indeed, that's the only way the Chinese dynasties have ever been replaced, for 5000 years!

So how can authoritarian Singapore hope to be an exception?

For you and your family's safety, emigrate now before that happens.

I will too, once I have made enough money in Young Pay-And-Pay. Haha!

Q & A hosted by Young Pay-And-Pay

Question by innocent 66.6%: Why did the PAP government appoint itself as the spokesperson of all countries which have the death penalty, when speaking against the abolition of that penalty at the United Nation a while back? Why not just be a quiet follower instead and let others do the dirty job?

Answer by YPAP: Please don't be naive; We cannot afford to be just a follower! At stake is our aspiration to be the world's premier multi million-dollar medical hub ! We must have the death penalty! Haven't you read this yet?

Singapore tycoon gets kidney from hanged gangster
Saturday, 10 January 2009

An ailing Singapore retail magnate has received a kidney believed to have come from a convicted gangster hanged on the same day, The Straits Times reported Saturday...

If you have not, you can read it here.

So, please lah, wake up from your idea!!!

Not only do we need to retain the death penalty at all cost (unless the cost is higher than the profit raked in by our local-suppliers foreign-customers organ donation medical hub), we must increase the number of execution (of young peasants - the younger, the better the organs) and reduce the number being caned (lest we accidentally hurt their pricey kidneys!)

This, we can do by getting Parliament to increase the number of offences which carries the death penalty. Upgrading Section 377A to punish homosexual sex by death instead of just by imprisonment is one way. Thio Li Ann can surely be counted on to give us another outstanding performance, this time quoting directly from her Bible about how those people in Sodom were punished by death by God for sodomy and how it is thus the duty of all Singaporeans of all religion (including those with no religion) to play (Christian) God - thus conferring on us the same equal right to judge homosexuals (and everyone else) as God has.

We will allow Bible-thumping Thio and her followers to say as much as they want, while clamping down on those bloody atheist who dare criticise the religionists, with the Sedition Act or the religious harmony bill, or whatever our Christian-majority cabinet can come up with.

Religous harmony must be maintained in secular Singapore at all cost by allowing only those with a religion a free say about what their religion teaches. No atheist can be allowed to say: "what your religion teaches is hog-wash, and nonsensical rubbish, and therefore Singapore should not be governed the way your religion teaches". Atheist can only say: "For some reason which I am not permitted to say lest I be charged under the Sedition Act, Singapore should not be governed in this way and sorry, I am not allowed to substantiate my reasoning with any rebuttal against your argument, because every of my rebuttal rest on my thinking that your religion is false and thus I am not allowed to speak my mind under PAP law for religious harmony!"

On the judiciary side, we must also instruct the AGC to prosecute more actively e.g. continue to charge people for murder as a dirty trick to get them to "confess" to man-slaughter, but don't honour the bargain. Prosecute them for murder after getting their "confession" (but at the same time, be careful to do that only to locals, not foreigners.)

The police must also carry out more checks at the borders and more drug raids (but carefully avoiding areas patronised mostly by foreigners and local elites e.g. the offsprings of former judges).

We will not need to instruct the judges on how to rule, since they are independent (and the whole world knows that. If not, we will get the Emperor Dowager, who listens to everything behind a curtain, to handle this).

However, we will most certainly need to find someone younger to replace hang-man Mr. Singh who may retire at any moment. The last time, when Mr. Singh left the job, we appealed to his calling to serve the nation by killing people. But times have changed. The younger generation did not experience the poor Singapore of the 1960s, blah blah blah.

So, this time round, if he quits again, we will have to peg the new hang-man's salary to 2/3 of that of some occupations (which will appeal more to our peasants than pegging it at 5 times of that of United States President, even though the final salary would be the same amount.)

We must also carefully coordinate the time of hanging and the time of transplant - a cadeveric transplant carries a lower rate of success compared to a live-donor transplant. So, we will start to think about building a new state-of-the-art transplant centre at Changi Hospital, to replace the one at SGH, which is too far away - although it takes only 2o minutes to go from the easternmost point of Singapore to the westernmost point when we utilise police motorcade esccot, we cannot do that when it is not MM that needs the transplant

Or, we may even build it in Changi prison itself, but we will have to do get our million-dollar permanent secretaries to spend another few million dollars to get some external consultants to do the cost-benefits analysis of such a move, while they takes some super-long vacation to learn french cooking. Hopefully, the consultants are from France, so that those of our perm secs who are there to inspect french kitchens can meet up with the consultants easily.

We will call it the Changi Hospital transplant centre, after we pay yet another few million dollars to some brand-name consultants to see if they can come up with a better name. After pocketing our (or rather, our peasants') money, they will probably simply tell us our original name is good enough. But that's ok - it never hurts for us Asians in PAP to have the second opinion of an Ang Moh (which is also why we have these foreigners sitting on our National Wage Council to decide the wage that our peasants ought to get - but we have not let them decide the wage of us elites. Lucky for us in YPAP, otherwise, our PM would be getting US$600,000 like the US President, instead of US$2,000,000)

Last, and definitely the least important task on the agenda, we will need to convince Singaporeans (many of whose family members will need to utilise the service of the Hang-man anyway): what's a few more thousand in salary for the hang-man and the brand-new transplant centre and the consultants etc, compared to our billion dollar GDP whose success depend very much on us finding that rare person who would want to work as a hang-man. Please have a sense of proportion! That's what we will tell those peasants!

Or maybe we should tell them the truth - if we do not pay the new hang-man handsomely, he may choose instead to work in the private sector for some petty thugs who "eliminate" all their dissidents. In that case, instead of dying at the noose of our new hang-man, our peasants (and their mothers and sisters) may end up living poorly as maids overseas. We will ask them to think hard about it - which would they prefer: a good death or a bad living?

That surely will wake them up, which is a prerequisite before they can go indulge in some vice that will result in the death penalty. The 2 new gambling dens will come in handy to ensure that we meet our quota!

We will need to go for the "human side" -talk about how condemned prisoners can redeem themselves by donating organs. This is where we YPAP will come into play. We will flood all the blogs and online forums with our wonderful logic. And we will write multi ghost letters purportedly from religious people of all faith using various ethnic names, to the Straits Times. Some of us will be grieving conservatives mothers aghast by our sons' modern thinking of donating their kidneys to foreign millionaires, but in the end proud of our sons' selfless final act before they are hanged for a non-violent crime that would result in only prison time in other countries the most outrageous crime we can think of.

That will take care of almost everything. Except for a few bloody peasants who refuse to come to their senses to analyse everything in terms of dollars and cents only. We can already anticipate right now that they will want to talk about the value of the human life and other unimportant human rights values that have no impact on our lives (except to take away our lives. haha). Nevermind, we will get Chua Lee Hoong to do something about these near-psychopaths. Her poison pen is mightier than the sword.

Frugal your Lao Bu CCB I

Frugal living at home amid lush greenery
'Suffering and deprivation is good for the soul.'
- Mrs Lee Kuan Yew

In Jan 2009, Lee Wei Ling, daughter of Lee Kuan Yew, lectured Singaporeans in the latest of her long series of letters to the Straits Times:
...reconsider our priorities in life.

...I still find it hard to believe that there are people carrying handbags that cost more than thrice the monthly income of a bus driver, and many more times that of the foreign worker labouring in the hot sun risking his life to construct luxury condominiums he will never have a chance to live in. I view the crass materialism around me, I am reminded of what my mother once told me: 'Suffering and deprivation is good for the soul.'

My family is not poor, but we have been brought up to be frugal.

...if one is blinded by materialism, there would be no end to wanting and hankering. After the Ferrari, what next? An Aston Martin? After the Hermes Birkin handbag, what can one upgrade to?

Neither an Aston Martin nor an Hermes Birkin can make us truly happy or contented. They are like dust, a fog obscuring the true meaning of life, and can be blown away in the twinkling of an eye.

In 1995, the same Lee Wei Ling bought a posh condominium in Orchard Road called Scott 28, at a jaw-dropping 20%-discounted price, in an exclusive private sale only open to "certain" selected individuals i.e. before general sale is opened to the public.

Her uncle Lee Suan Yew, brother of Lee Kuan Yew, was a director of the developer, Hotel Property Ltd (HPL), a public listed company.

She bought unit 18-05 on 17/10/1995 at the deeply-discounted price of $2,761,300 and sold it barely 6 months later on 27/3/96.

I hope in her next letter to the Straits Times, she can enlighten Singaporeans:
  • How much did she make from this sale, while living a frugal life in her parent's home?

  • Did she find it hard to believe that she had bought a free-hold prime land property that she won't be living in, which cost more than a million times "the monthly income of the foreign worker who laboured in the hot sun risking his life to construct [her] luxury condominiums [which] he will never have a chance to live in"?

  • Was she "blinded by materialism? After [Scott 28], what next? [Nassim Jade condominium?] After [Nassim Jade], what can [she] upgrade to? [Istana?]"

  • Is the money she made from this private purchase "like dust, a fog obscuring the true meaning of life, and can be blown away in the twinkling of an eye"?

Her brother, Lee Hsien Yang, did not participate in that property speculation. He also did not write high-sounding moral letters to the Straits Times to teach Singaporeans how to live frugally. Like his sister, he was "been brought up to be frugal", but he probably believed that actions speak louder than words. So, he simply let his quiet actions demonstrate to all Singaporeans the goodness of "suffering and deprivation" that his mother had so painstakingly taught them:

His quiet suffering in his frugal house:

His silent deprivation in his frugal dining room:

His tiny frugal kitchen inspired by his mother's words:

Oh, Mrs Lee Kuan Yew, together with her husband, also bought a unit (Unit 20-5, directly 2 floors above her daughter's unit) at, again, a 20% discounted price of $2,791,500.

And so did her niece, Kwa Kim Li!

And so did a lawyer, Andrew Ang, working in her law firm!

Is this her way of teaching her entire family that "suffering and deprivation is good for the soul."

Lee Hsien Loong also bought a 12-20% discounted property from the company. Together with his father, he was summoned to the office of then Prime Minister Goh Chok Tong (in Goh's word (slightly paraphrased) "I told them to come to my office"), and told by then Finance Minister Richard Hu to return the equivalence of the discount that they had received.

In Parliament:
  • Mr. Lee Kuan Yew said he did no wrong, but he and his son would return the discount nevertheless.
  • He also conveyed to Singaporeans that his angry wife had told him that Singaporeans were ungrateful to him.

Ong Beng Seng, the developer, was told by Lee that he may be charged for attempting to bribe Lee! Ong, a businessman, must have been very happy to sell 10+ properties at 20% discount costing him millions of dollars to Lee's extended family! He must have done so without any influence/order from his director Lee Suan Yew.

Anyhow, Lee Suan Yew left the Board of Directors of the developer company quietly shortly thereafter.

Koh Seng Beng - the MAS manager who reported to Richard Hu that the public was getting discontented with the huge discount - was transferred out of MAS soon.

Richard Hu resigned and left politics.

Goh Chok Tong is no longer the Prime Minister.

Lai Kew Chai, high court judge and good friend of Lee Kuan Yew, also brought a 20% discounted property. He sentenced Tang Liang Hong - the man who exposed that the Hotel Property purchases were not limited to just Lee and his son, but involved the extended family on both sides- to bankruptcy. He died soon thereafter in his 60s.

Mrs Lee Kuan Yew is now near brain-dead and has been so for the past 6 months.

The rest of the extended family are still alive. Some, even take it to be their responsibility to write regularly to the newspaper to eschew the virtue of frugality!

You can view the list of their deeply-discounted purchases here (click on "HPL Purchasers Schedules").

Note: I am not the only one who thinks lowly of the Lee family's hypocritical attempt to portray an fake image of "frugality" when they were actually very extravagant in their lifestyle. Someone exposed the false portrayal by Li Xiuqi of her grandma Kwa Geok Choo too. I entitled it: Frugal your Lao Bu CCB II
