PR trained MP Baey Yam Keng infected with foot-in-mouth disease

'I believe people can accept that our political leaders should have the best medical care - either with increased coverage or even free of charge.
'We cannot choose when and whether to fall ill. It is in the interests of the country and Singaporeans that our prime minister and our ministers are given the necessary medical treatment and recover well and fast to continue serving the nation.'

~ MP Baey Yam Keng

It is very ironic that MP Baey Yam Keng, who is also the Managing Director of Hill & Knowlton (a MNC Public Relations agency), can make such 'high potential to be misunderstood" remark to the media to suggest that Singapore political leaders should get the best medical care for free so that can return to the serve the country earlier than sooner.

How about the rest of everyday Singaporeans? Shouldn't they also get the best medical care for free because they are the ones that keep Singapore moving? Are the average Singaporeans not important enough to Singapore to get the best medical care for free?

How about senior citizens? Didn't they give their best years to Singapore? Why are they not getting the best medical care for free? Are they less important than our political leaders? 

How about that child suffering from a terminal disease? Shouldn't the child get the best medical care for free because the child is Singapore's future? Shouldn't the child be given the best medical care for free so the child can return to school so that the child can continue the dream of winning the Nobel Prize, sooner rather than later? What's make that child less important than our political leaders? 

Shouldn't this child be given the best medical care for free so their parents can return to society faster to contribute to society? What makes the parents, average Singaporeans, less important than political leaders?

MP Baey Yam Keng's statement shows that our PAP MPs nowhere close from being the servant-leader that the PAP promise it made during the 2011 elections. Is MP Baey Yam Keng serving his leaders or serving his constituents, the average Singaporeans?

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…

Social Media 101: How To Be The Most Hated Person In Singapore Instantly

It is amazing how we are quick to forget that a single wrong comment on social media can make one the most hated person in Singapore.

Back in 2012, we had Amy Cheong. Her comments on Facebook about a Malay wedding under her HDB void deck resulted in an online CSI that cost her her job.

Fast forward to 2017 and we have Thomas Chua Poh Heng and whose name will forever live in Internet infamy.



Thomas reposted a video of the funeral of a Traffic Policeman who died while on duty. Thomas then commented that his death was well deserve as Thomas was once given a traffic ticket by the same Traffic Policeman.

Even the Home Minister for Singapore, who is responsible for the Police Force, was offended by Thomas' statement.



The screenshot showed that post was marked global by the Globe image next to the Singapore tag which could hint that this post was meant for all to see. As such, the argument of a "private"post does not hold any weight here.

Just as expected, after this post was s…
