Think twice before voting for a superstitious PAP

2015 PAP Strategy 战略 17 -- strategy of superstition

If you read the Chinese media, you will notice how superstitious the PAP can be. We are talking about empower our future. Do you trust the PAP for your future? - A party that can only promise its delivery based on superstition and luck.  GE2015 is the time we seek an alternative to empower ourselves rather than enriching the PAP.

A strong mandate to the PAP will paint a wrong future for Singapore. And most importantly, it is against the 'feng shui' turning.

Let’s look at the PAP’s superstition in three areas:

  1. The making of the PAP superstition
  2. The turning ‘feng shui’
  3. Normality and certainty

The making of the PAP superstition

Many comments about the fear factor of 9/11 for
selecting September, 11 as polling day. However, in Chinese lunar calendar, we should look at the ‘opening day’ and ‘closing day’ of an event. In short,

The nomination day is a foundation day (定江山). #1
It is good to launch a campaign and the fate is already fitted on this day.
The rumor of possible walkover is always a possibility.


In the last few days of Chinese 7th month, there are only one good day(吉日).  It is September, 11.
Now, you know why the PAP picks this
date instead of September 12.

You may think this is a just a coincidence but Chinese do believe this and in fact, in Chinese traditions, it is important to start a business or even launch a war in a lucky day.

It is a ‘feng shui’.

Since the Chinese mainstream media is covering it, they are reporting it from the viewpoint of the PAP. It means September 1 and 11 are good and lucky days for the PAP.   

The turning ‘feng shui’

However, it can also be a good and lucky days for the oppositions, especially one believes the ‘feng shui’ is turning against the PAP. In Chinese, it is called ‘风水轮流转‘. ‘Feng Shui’ is not a constant and it will change, just like the yin and yang.  

Fate can be changed and unlucky fate can be avoided by doing good things. 'Feng shui' masters always advise believers to do good things, charitable works etc.

The PAP strongly believes they can change their luck by doing things like SG50, pioneer packages, baby bonus, housing grants, MediShield Life, etc. So, they should receive the mandate of the haven. And Goh Chok Tong wants a strong mandate. Then, the haven will ask him what Goh and the PAP have done so far. Are there beneficial to the people?
Is that so simple? The PAP is also doing bad things in the past and present too, for example, ISA, bankruptcy, family planning, population, high cost of living, rich-poor gap, low-income sufferings, etc.

To cover the bad doings and prevent the bad luck, ‘feng shui’ has to come to rescue and change the bad luck against them. Choosing a good date for nomination and polling days is a 'must' for good 'feng shui'.

Normality and certainty

The changing ‘feng shui’ is the normal thing and it is also the certain thing. In GE2011, many consider it is a breakthrough and Singapore politics is moving towards a new normal.

For 50 years, the PAP managed to keep its authoritarian power unchallenged.  It is in fact not a normal thing and hence creates uncertainty. 50 years without change is against the normal flow of 'feng shui'.

A strong alternative force in parliament is a normal development with certainty. The PAP is trying all means to prevent and avoid the the ‘feng shui’ turning. There is a price to pay for doing things against the ‘feng shui’ flowing. For example, locals will have to suffer, low income workers continue to have no wage increase, infrastructure cannot cope with the population increase, PMET jobs etc.   

The PAP also knows about this. As a short-term solution, they are using new notes, new LKY memory services, National Day Celebration and Rally to boost their image and luck. They even move one of the nomination centres to Raffles Institution. They hope these can prevent the turning of ‘feng shui’.

The PAP had done well and good in the past.  At the same time, it had also committed some mistakes. LKY managed to prevent the turning of ‘feng shui’ by his iron hands. However, iron hands are not allowed in today’s Singapore.

Lee Hsien Loong is the third generation of the PAP. In Chinese, luck cannot last longer than three generations. (富不过三代).  It is a wonder if he can get a strong mandate by preventing the ‘feng shui’ changing.

A strong mandate is gained through caring, kind and compassion. The PAP’s Amazon way of treating Singaporeans is against the yin-yang balance and the ‘feng shui’.  

What do you think?

Lessons from Indian Innovations

India offers different innovation approaches that Singapore can learn from. Her grassroots and inclusive innovations are very unique and worth to consider. As the Indian initiative heavily involves Information Technology, let’s begin the discussion on Indian Stack.       [Indian Stack and Internet Access] To make its IT network more secure, the Singapore government has begun a programme to restrict public servants’ internet access on workstations. It was announced by the Infocomm Development Authority (IDA) of Singapore on 8 June 2016. By May 2017, public service officers across all Singapore government agencies, ministries and statutory boards will have internet access “separate” from their computers. (1) In the name of internet security, we are willing to sacrifice productivity, perhaps, innovations and creativity too.  Is this a good solution?   Let’s look at India. India Stack is a complete set of API for developers and includes the Aadhaar for Authentication (Aadhaa


一转眼,过了25年。 1993年,王鼎昌年成为新加坡第一位民选总统。当时,他为了维护总统负责的第二把国家储备钥匙,问了总审计长,储备知多少的问题。这个需要52年工作日计算的大工程,现在已经过了1/4个世纪。 人生有多少个25年,我们在这1/4个世纪,有没有改进新加坡的公共财政管理?如果拿纳吉作为反面教材,那当然就是没有,不只没有,还很可能倒退,比一些亚细安国家落后,甚至不如后发的一些非洲国家,如南非等。 往事如烟,新加坡公共财政管理,依然故我,透明度没有进步 - 到底有多少人知道储备的真正情形,而真实的情形是不是政府说的那样?说了就算?相对来说,国人似乎也不在乎,相信人民行动党政府的解释,而怀疑反对党的质问。 马来西亚的变天, 警惕国人,  是时候关心政府的所作所为,公共财政管理是需要全民参与。 不论世界银行,还是国际货币基金组织,在协助落后地区,甚至在贷款给发达国家的时候,都希望看到健全的法制和公民参与支持相关的计划。对于有些批评者,这两个组织是维护富人、富国的利益,这不正符合新加坡政府的治国方针吗?我们甚至是这两个组织的伙伴,协助它们输出新加坡的管理软件、技术到其他国家。 公民参与是过去25年的世界趋势,联合国,世界银行,国际货币基金组织等一直强调,还有很多非政府组织纷纷出现,参与监督财政政策的制定和审计。而储备作为财政预算的重要一环,它的多少,如何合理使用,将会发挥它在财政政策上的效率。 人民行动党政府在制定财政政策的时候,如增加消费税,新机场的兴建,基础建设的工程,似乎是它说了算了。就如新机场需要动用多少资金,也无法说清楚。只是一味要求人民相信政府,它的出发点,完全是为了新加坡的将来。这不正是和25年前一样,储备金无法及时算出来,给出同样的答案。 25年来,科技的进步,大数据时代到来,行动党似乎还是停留在1993年,利用旧电脑来计算储备、计算财政政策和预算。它忘了马哈迪就是利用脸书等社交媒体打倒纳吉的主流媒体。 在公民参与部分,其中IBP国际预算伙伴是值得关注的一个公民参与的组织。IBP通过民间力量,分析政府的政策政策和预预算,达到改善政府的财政率和降低贫穷人口。 IBP在世界各地区有超过100多个伙伴。其中,新加坡的伙伴是新加坡国立大学的李光耀政策研究院。在对115个国家的调查中,竟然没有新加坡的数据。在IBP的网
