Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong has won the monthly Best Prime Minister In Singapore For January 2017 award.

This after he was voted as the best prime minister in Singapore this month, having won in all months in 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 so far.

This January 2017 win marks his 146th monthly award, despite a scandal breaking out in Ang Mo Kio Town Council requiring a probe by the authorities last year.

He has been winning the award every month since 2004, when he first took office in December that year. Within a month of first becoming prime minister, he took home the award and has been doing so every month since then.

One Singaporean, Guan Jun, said: “This award is similar to the annual journalism award event Mediacorp hosts, where Mediacorp wins big.”

“It is also similar to how The Straits Times celebrates the Nielsen media survey that reveals it is still the most-read English newspaper each year.”

“Being able to compete with yourself every year and coming out tops credibly is always not easy.”

Other locals said they must not be too quick to dismiss such awards as they serve an important purpose.

Shenre Kuaile, another local, said: “We can just mentally substitute ‘Best’ with ‘Happy Anniversary’.”

“Basically, it is a reminder that another month has past and it is anniversary time again.”

“We shall see next month who wins again.”

He must set a good example.

pm-lee-using-computer

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who believe in fairness and leading by example, are calling on Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong to stop posting updates on Facebook, especially after May 2017 when the Internet is cut off for public servants.

One Singaporean, Mian Bu, said this is so as it will set a precedent: “Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong is the foremost public servant in Singapore. His actions will set the example for the hundreds of thousands of public servants who would follow his cue.”

“It is of utmost importance that he does not post updates on his Facebook page during office hours as he should not have access to the Internet using government computers.”

“And even if he does post on Facebook using his own device, it would signal he is using his own Internet data to post, which is also not good, as he should not be social networking during office hours where he is compensated with taxpayers’ money.”

However, other Singaporeans said dictating how the prime minister should act during office hours is not a natural right of citizens.

Tou Piao, another local, said: “We need to put this issue up for a referendum.”

“The two choices are: ‘PM Lee must not post Facebook updates during office hours’ or ‘PM Lee must compensate taxpayers for posting Facebook updates during office hours’.”

“These two choices resemble the referendum asking citizens to decide if Singapore should merge with Malaysia, where there was no choice to vote against the merger.”

If we did, none of these hard feelings would have happened.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who believe in the power of Majulah, are shaking their heads in disbelief and making hand symbols signalling they are terribly upset.

This after they realised they did not shout “Majulah!” to help mend the public spat between Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and his sister Lee Wei Ling.

One Singaporean, Xiong Di, said: “If only Singaporeans got together to shout ‘Majulah!’ at the same time for a few hours, none of this would have happened.”

“We must start shouting ‘Majulah!’ now, so that their relationship can start to get better.”

“How come no one did a video about ‘Majulah’ to make things better? Why?”

However, not all Singaporeans are optimistic shouting “Majulah” for hours on end will aid the situation.

Another local, Jie Mei, said: “We must shout ‘Majulah!’ for more than 23 hours a day to be useful.”

“That’s when we can unleash the power of Majulah and Singapore will never have any problems or dynasties.”

Friends forever? We need Majulahs badly.

Three thoughts that must have went past your mind at some point.

pm-lee-1-million-likes

Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong’s has reached 1 million Likes on his Facebook page.

He achieved the milestone during his week-long trip to the United States. The page crossed the mark on Wednesday, Feb. 17 evening.

In a post on Thursday afternoon, PM Lee said he had just returned to Singapore and was “surprised” to find that his page had more than a million likes.

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:

 

sian-half-auntie “I would die for one million Facebook Likes instead of for Singapore.”
Xian Shi, 44-year-old philosopher

 

sian-half-uncle “Roy Ngerng can sue because clearly his blog posts did not harm PM Lee’s popularity.”
Shang Fa Ting, 65-year-old court clerk

 

happy-bird-girl “Lee Kuan Yew was still the better prime minister despite having zero Facebook Likes.”

This photo has been met with widespread opprobrium from highly religious Singaporeans.

pm-lee-tim-cook-apple

A major crisis has broken out in Singapore causing highly religious Singaporeans to consider denouncing their Singapore citizenship, unplugging from the Internet altogether, going back to barter trade and using stone and bronze tools.

This after they found out that Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong went to the US and wore a pink shirt to meet prominent gay man, Apple’s CEO Tim Cook.

This has caused the highly religious people in Singapore who are iPhone users and who support the PAP regime, to come to the realisation that they have been financing the gay lifestyle of Apple’s CEO, having purchased his company’s products, such as the popular iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, Apple tablets and MacBooks and now face the prospect of saluting a prime minister who has come into contact with a homosexual.

Currently, some 70 percent of smartphone users in Singapore uses an Apple iPhone, which is the same percentage of Singaporeans who voted for the PAP regime in the General Election 2015.

Yeshu Aini, a local religious person, said: “My entire life is in disarray. I have all along been an Apple and Lee Hsien Loong fan and bought the iPhone 5 and 6 that were developed under Tim Cook’s charge and voted for the PAP.”

“Therefore, I have been directly contributing to sin by financing it. This has allowed homosexuality to thrive.”

“No wonder this latest 5.5-inch iPhone 6s Plus feels so good in my hands. It is because this is the average length of the male anatomy.”

Local magician Lawrence Khong is expected to take to the pulpit on Sunday to encourage his flock to switch to using pay phones from now on, or even better, denounce technology altogether as a whole to be Satan’s work.

They say they feel entitled to sit down.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who enjoy taking public transport because cars are for rich people, have refused to get up from their seats on the MRT train.

This after they saw an elderly couple enter the train but refused to budge to let them sit down.

One Singaporean, Tah Dee Tieh, said he does not see anything wrong with not giving up his seat to this elderly couple: “They don’t look like they belong here in the first place.”

Other Singaporeans said they would think twice about giving up their seats to this elderly couple as they are not sure if they deserve it.

One other local, Wa Mai, said: “Actually, they should even give up their standing space to other commuters who need it more.”

This shows that Singaporeans embrace creativity.

pm-lee-mandate

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who embrace creativity by coming up with imaginative names, have successfully renamed Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong as 1 Lee Kuan Yew Son.

This after they learnt that creativity can be expressed by renaming Compass Point shopping mall as 1 Sengkang Mall in a bid to showcase a flair in thinking out of the box.

One Singaporean, Gai Ming Zi, said: “Singaporeans are beginning to embrace the culture of being more creative by performing their own name changes and they are doing this out of their own volition.”

“Therefore, a group of Singaporeans have decided to rename Lee Hsien Loong as 1 Lee Kuan Yew Son, following the rich culture established and precedent set by 1 Sengkang Mall.”

Other Singaporeans said the name change will mark a shift in thinking about 1 Lee Kuan Yew Son.

Chuan Tong, another local, said: “We Singaporeans took a long time to conceptualise and approve of this new name.”

“To name him as 1 Lee Kuan Yew Son will better help younger Singaporeans situate him within a historical context so that we don’t forget his roots.”

At press time, there are plans to rename President Tony Tan as 1 Popularly Elected President Who Barely Won The Popular Vote By A Few Votes.

 

 

 

 

 











Blogger to pay $150,000 in damages in monthly payouts of $50, after PM Lee turns 65

Blogger to pay $150,000 in damages in monthly payouts of $50, after PM Lee turns 65

Tags: , ,


Compensation for damages to be settled according to how CPF functions.

roy-ngerng-bw

A new compensation scheme has been worked out for the blogger who has been successfully sued by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong for writing lengthy blog posts.

Another self-designated lawyer, who is not M Ravi, has worked out a payment scheme for the blogger to make compensation.

The lawyer, Kong Chee Kim, said: “Since Roy Ngerng has been ordered to pay $150,000 in damages, he has worked out a method to disburse the sum as monthly payouts of $50.”

“And this monthly payout will only start when PM Lee hits 65 years old, which is in two years’ time in 2017.”

“In the meantime, the blogger will pay an interest rate that is slightly lower than the annual inflation rate per year for holding on to the $150,000 sum until 2017.”

“But the blogger must also ensure that he is always holding on to $150,000 minimum sum and any payout will only be possible, if it is above this sum.”

“And when PM Lee hits 65, the age limit could be changed to 67.”

Singaporeans from 70 percent walks of life have come out to propose a scientific method of deflecting the haze away from Singapore: Put up Lee Hsien Loong’s posters all over Singapore again.

This after it was realised that the haze was kept at bay during the General Election 2015 hustings in the first week of September and this effect can be attributed to the appearance of Lee Hsien Loong’s face island-wide.

One Singaporean, Poh Lan Pah, who made this discovery, said: “We must put up Lee Hsien Loong’s face all over the island again to deflect the haze.”

“The last time we did it, there was no haze as Lee Hsien Loong personally protected Singapore with his face.”

Other Singaporeans who heard of this method said they are wholly supportive of it but more can be done.

Kee Chiak Hong, another local, said: “The last time round during GE2015, there was an extra day of public holiday for Polling Day.”

“That must have been one of the measures to protect Singapore from the haze.”

“Singapore would, therefore, need another public holiday now as the last time round a free public holiday helped keep the haze at bay.”

Three thoughts that must have went past your mind at some point.

pm-lee-singapore-summit-2015-comment

Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong spoke to 400 policymakers and business leaders at the Singapore Summit at the Marina Bay Sands on Friday, Sept. 18, 2015.

He said:

I would say that voters approved of what we did and took the view that they wanted us to continue on the track which we were doing. And that the best way to do this is to send us a signal that they approve of what we did. That’s the most straightforward way in which to develop a relationship and to build a bond and to make the system work.

The opposition had a different storyline. They said, ‘The government is doing good, you vote for us, the government will work even harder’. I think that is a very dangerous approach. It goes against human nature. I mean, if you have a friend, and your friend is nice to you, you’re nice to him or her. And I think most Singaporeans agree with us that the way to build a relationship and to develop a close bond for the future was to work with the government.

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:

 

sian-half-auntie “Lee Hsien Loong was the one who said ‘Vote for PAP to make opposition work harder’ during his GE2015 lunchtime rally.”
Gong Jiao Wei, 45-year-old foreign language teacher

 

sian-half-uncle “His dad wrote plenty of books with comments that went against human nature.”

A group of NTU students collected a few hundred letters of appreciation from Singaporeans here and abroad during the national mourning period for Lee Kuan Yew and put them into a book.

The book was presented to Lee Hsien Loong on Sept, 16, 2015 — on Lee Kuan Yew’s 92nd birthday — who then proceeded to take a jump shot with the students and posted the photo on his Facebook page.
