Streaming Mr Tan Kin Lian

Ok.. the secret is out, on CNA!


I am volunteering my free time to help out with Mr Tan Kin Lian for the upcoming Presidential Elections. I be helping out in the social media content part which includes the “live” streaming to the Internet savvy Singaporeans.

So why am I helping out?

Mr Tan Kin Lian came to my attention when he stood up for Singaporeans affected by their investment in divertive packages which drove the last financial crisis.

Though I was not affected, but to see many Singaporeans losing their hard earned savings with nobody helping them made me quite sad as a Singaporean.

My personal political belief is that the people vote in the Government they want because they believe in what their Government can do for them, not for the big corporations.

The major bank that was involved compensated their Hong Kong investors but not those in Singapore, because the bank would  havebe taken to the courts by the Hong Kong government, if nothing was done.

However, these Singaporeans affected had no or limited recourse.

Then came Mr Tan Kin Lian.

First they came for the communists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.

Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew.

Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak out for me.

~ Pastor Martin Niem√∂ller (1892–1984) about the inactivity of German intellectuals following the Nazi rise to power and the purging of their chosen targets, group after group.

Standing up for fellow Singaporeans at their time of need takes lot of courage and I admire Mr Tan Kin Lian for that.

I am very well aware that the President of Singapore do not have any executive power but the President of Singapore do have the power to influence.

The custodial role given to the President of Singapore was with the intend to safeguard the reserves from a corrupt government who decided for their own good to dig into Singapore reserves.

If we only allow the President of Singapore to be the “voice of the people” only when the reserves are threatened, it will be too late, as reflected by Pastor Martin Niemoller’s statement.

It takes lots of courage, especially in Singapore, to be the “voice of the people”. Mr Tan Kin Lian has repeatedly demonstrated that he would stand up for the innocent.

Presidential elections aside, Mr Tan will be broadcasting his first “live” stream this Sunday,  and he will be taking about financial planning. An important topic in today’s economic uncertainty where the value of money is constantly depreciating.

You can catch it on this link or in this post via the embedded “live'” video player below.

Why is Ramly Burger banned in Singapore?

Yahoo Singapore ran an article of the Ramly Burger by highlighting that it is ban in Singapore.

Yet, the writer from Makansutra failed to address the most important issue of why the Ramly meat patty is banned in Singapore.

A search online easily did highlight that the famous Malaysian meat patty is banned by the AVA but didn't go into details.

Wrote Arlina Arshad for The Straits Times in January 2004,

"But the importing of beef and beef products from Malaysia is not permitted, said theAgri-Food and Veterinary Authority (AVA).

Selling and supplying them without a permit is also an offence, and offenders can befined as much as $50,000 or jailed two years, or both, said the AVA."

In May of the same year, another article highlighted that a man was even charged in court for "smuggling" the Ramly burger in 2004.

"The AVA said that meat products processed in Malaysian food factories which it had notapproved were banned here.Suzali was yesterday jailed for four month…

Did She Run Or Did She "Just Fake It" For Adidas?

Andrea Chong, a Adidas appointed influencer, posted a photo of herself in the middle of the Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon 2015 and captioned how she was "all smiles" during the run.

Unfortunately for Andrea or the PR agency, one of her readers checked her bib number #75148  at the Marathon's website only to find it to belonging to somebody else.

That somebody else is Kuvin Kuar, a intern at Edelman PR and the bib number had a status "DNF" or did not finished.

This raised the first red flag as one of the rules stated that "A Participants is strictly not allowed to transfer his or her race entry to another party".

This cascaded into perceptions that Andrea herself did not even start or complete the race and was only "planted" by Adidas or the PR agency, Edelman PR, to look pretty in the marathon.

Marketing Magazine noted that Adidas declined to comment about the incident which lead to further speculation that Andrea was possibly just …

Kudos To Huawei 2 Year Warranty For P9 Series

When it comes to smartphones, I think I am jinxed.

For my history of owning smartphones, every time it comes close to the end of the two year contract with my mobile service provider. This time round, it happened to my Huawei P9.

All of a sudden, the LCD screen sort of decolourised. I thought it was a temporary issue but the decolourisation lasted for a few hours. Then the nightmare began.

The touchscreen couldn't be touched. This made it the smartphone a brick.

I thought the Huawei P9 only had one year of warrant. With my contract ending in mid-year, I thought I would have to wait it out till the contract ended and allowed me to buy a new phone under a contract.

Luckily, a friend reminded me that the phone came with a 2 year warranty.

So I decided to go to the Huawei service center, right smack in the center of the city, to see if my phone is under warranty and if Huawei would honour their 2 year warranty.

Thankfully, Huawei isn't as popular as the Samsungs or Apples, and the …
