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…

Those Who Gamble Online Have Poorest Control - NCG Survey In 2012

Singapore will soon exempt local operators, Singapore Pools and Turf Club, from online gambling ban and the sites will be ready in November 2016.

Ministry of Home Affairs explained that a complete ban on remote gambling drives demand and activities underground, and may create larger incentives for criminal syndicates to target Singapore."

Yet in a 2012 survey by the National Council on Problem Gambling (NCG) found that those who gamble online have the poorest control.

For those who indulged in online gambling, 30.4% said they gambled for a longer period than they planned to, 33.3% gambled with more money than they planned and 29.2% gambled more frequently they planned to. 
Will launching the online gambling sites be like opening a Pandora Box that will create more issues in the future?

A Very Small Chicken Or An Oversized Popcorn Chicken?

Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) Singapore Facebook Page recently received a complaint of the size of the chicken being served at KFC.

Barnabas Ng took a photo of his chicken from KFC which showed it to be almost the size of the KFC small container. It also looked like a an oversize popcorn chicken.

Wrote Barnabas,

"Hi KFC, is this your new standard size for a chicken? I order 3 piece meal and 2 pieces including this so called original recipe chicken is smaller than the size of the cap of ur small mash potato.

Have you guys try to cut cost so much that you are offering half a size chicken pieces for a full price meal? It is just getting from bad to worse"

KFC Singapore did reply to Barnabas for him to PM his mobile number but Barnabas has yet to receive any calls from KFC Singapore, as of this posting.

Maybe chickens are also shrinking with the current climate change?
