Lee Wei Ling & Roy Ngerng to add each other as friend on Facebook

They are both diametrically opposed to something.

Lee Wei Ling and Roy Ngerng are this close to adding each other as friend on Facebook.

This after they discovered they might share something in common.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who saw this development, said they are heartened by the show of solidarity.

One Singaporean, Shang Fa Ting, said it is not rare for siblings in Singapore to take each other to court: “Roy can provide some valuable tips.”

Other locals said they understand that it is from the family that most irony in life stems.

Ai Ren Nee, another local, said: “All these things are what someone’s father would not have wanted stemmed from a point being made about how all these things are what someone’s father would not have wanted.”

At press time, all popcorn in Singapore have sold out.

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

Blogger Roy Ngerng has applied to join the Reform Party, secretary-general Kenneth Jeyaretnam said on Wednesday.

Should Ngerng’s application be confirmed by RP’s central executive committee, Ngerng could be fielded as part of the RP’s team to contest against Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong’s six-person PAP team in Ang Mo Kio group representation constituency (GRC).

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:

 

sian-half-auntie “As if not having a choice was bad enough already, now I actually have to make a decision between Roy Ngerng and Lee Hsien Loong.”
Xian Ji Puah, 42-year-old casino croupier

 

sian-half-uncle “When PAP and opposition parties say they are contesting in election to give people a choice, I didn’t know it was my duty as a citizen to pick which idiot I want to rule and ruin my life.”
Bai Chi, 67-year-old retiree

 

happy-bird-girl “Singaporeans should be given a choice to vote both of them out.”
Ah Na Kee, 17-year-old student council leader

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 









PM Lee first S’porean to unlock cash value of blog posts, successfully monetise Internet content

PM Lee first S’porean to unlock cash value of blog posts, successfully monetise Internet content

Tags: , , , ,


He has succeeded where many Internet content providers have failed.

pm-lee-drinking-straw

Singaporeans from all walks of life, particularly those with blogs or manage some online website but do not make much money from their Internet endeavours, are clapping their hands loudly as they shake their heads in amazement at the same time.

This after Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong successfully unlocked the cash value of blog posts written about him by CPF blogger Roy Ngerng, that could potentially net him a figure anywhere between S$100,000 and S$250,000 or more.

Yong Dian Nao, a Singaporean online content producer, said: “Never in my wildest dreams did I think Internet content can be monetised or even be valuable, but yet, the prime minister has shown that it is not only entirely possible to make money online, it is possible to make a lot of money online from blog posts.”

“This flies in the face of the notion that badly written, incoherent and largely unintelligible Internet content is junk and valueless. Whoever said that must be eating his words now.”

Other Internet scribes said even though PM Lee’s approach of monetisation is unorthodox, it showed that there is a future for poorly-written web content as they can make big money and provide employment for related industries like law, the judiciary and national media outlets.

Shang Fa Ting, another website content maker, said: “A lot of companies and smart people have spent countless hours trying to figure out how to monetise all the web traffic and eyeballs but to no avail.”

“And here comes along PM Lee, who is not even a digital native, to figure out the road map for giving misguided and folly-ridden writing a premium.”

“I hope PM Lee’s approach to unlocking cash value in blog posts will go viral, for the lack of a better term, and it will be industry practice sooner than later, and this will allow others who write online to allow the monetisation of their content by other people.”

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

roy-ngerng-angry

CPF blogger Roy Ngerng broke down in court Friday on the second day of his brutal cross-examination by Senior Counsel Davinder Singh, who is representing Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong. He reportedly took out a stack of tissues to wipe his eyes when on the stand.

The hearing is to seek to assess damages that Ngerng has to pay PM Lee, after he was found last November to have defamed the prime minister in a blog post last May.

His emotional outburst comes on the third day of the three-day hearing where the blogger was already grilled on the previous day and made to look incoherent and evasive.

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:

 

sian-half-auntie “I guess Chinese privilege counts for nothing in that courtroom.”
Tng Lang, 46-year-old ex-Communist

 

sian-half-uncle “I guess what they said about the Internet is true: Having a blog gives you balls. But not when you are on the stand.”
Yong Dian Nao, 66-year-old programmer

 

happy-bird-girl “Crying publicly doesn’t mean you are weak and a sissy. But in this case, it does.”
Niang Niang Qiang, 20-year-old waitress

CPF blogger Roy Ngerng says dress is black & blue after PM Lee said it’s white & gold

Opposing for the sake of opposing.

roy-ngerng-angry

Following a 12-hour deliberation on the Internet where several billion people worldwide engaged in arguing one another whether the dress is gold and white or black and blue, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong has waded into the discussion and declared via fiat that it is gold and white.

 

However, his pronouncement drew an immediate lengthy blog post rebuttal by CPF blogger Roy Ngerng, who responded by saying that PM Lee is unilaterally deciding the outcome of the dress’s colour without first consulting Singaporeans via referendum what they thought.

Ngerng wrote in his blog: “The Prime Minister of Singapore has once again showed that he does not take his citizens’ views seriously and decides on their behalf what the colour of the dress is.”

“What if there are Singaporeans who think the dress is black and blue? Who is going to represent them and their view?”

“Will the PAP be able to say that they can represent this segment of Singaporeans? What if there are other Singaporeans who don’t see the dress as white and gold or black and blue? What if there are Singaporeans who can see the dress is green or pink? Then who can speak on their behalf?”

“Is it right for the leader of Singapore to come out to declare what the colour is without first consulting his people? Is this how we have transparency and accountability?”

At press time, Ngerng is demanding to know if PM Lee’s wife Ho Ching and the rest of the PAP MPs also see the dress as gold and white, and if that is the case, there is a serious problem of groupthink in Singapore’s leadership.

CPF blogger missed two deadlines to pay the prime minister court costs even when he had the funds.

roy-ngerng-circus

Singaporeans from all walks of life who contribute to CPF agree that blogger Roy Ngerng is behaving more and more like the PAP.

This after Ngerng missed two deadlines before paying S$29,000 in costs to Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong on Feb. 6, 2015.

The High Court had ordered Ngerng last month to pay Lee S$29,000 in total costs for court proceedings up until the summary judgment issued in November.

The previous deadlines were Jan. 29 and Feb. 2.

Singaporeans who heard about the missed deadlines said Ngerng’s actions are becoming more and more like the Singapore government.

One local, Kong Chee Kim, said: “Roy Ngerng collect money very fast, ask people donate and take all put inside the bank very fast.”

“But when it comes to paying out, very slow, like the government, a lot of red tape. Everything must wait one or two months to credit back to the rightful owner.”

Other Singaporeans agreed that the comparison is accurate.

Gong Ji Jing, another Singaporean, said: “Roy Ngerng is like PAP. Giro, CPF, ERP and conservancy fees all must collect on the dot, deduct money instantaneously. But when they need to credit back and reimburse citizens, they will take their own sweet time, dilly dally and it will be carried out very slowly.”

“Now Roy Ngerng has become the very thing he set out to fight.”

ReturnOurDonation protest in Hong Lim Park to ask for $100,000 in donations back.

Photo stolen from here

Thousands of donors who contributed more than $100,000 to Roy Ngerng’s charity fund are asking for their money back.

This after the CPF blogger heckled special needs children at Hong Lim Park on Sept. 27, 2014.

The donors, who initially gave willingly to Ngerng to shield him from Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong’s legal advances, said they did not expect their money to be used for unruly means and intimidation.

Kong Chee Kim, a Singaporean said: “We didn’t give Roy Ngerng money so he can disturb children. We want our money back. Return my donation! Return my donation!”

To demand their money back, other donors said they will be rallying together to organise their own Hong Lim Park protest in a few weeks’ time against Roy Ngerng.

Called ReturnOurDonation, the aim is to call attention to the lack of transparency and accountability in the way Ngerng has handled their donations.

However, to pull off the Return Our Donation rally, the donors who want their money back will also be launching a donation drive of their own to raise money to start the rally.

The Return Our Donation rally organisers said they will be transparent and accountable with how they handle the donations.

Everybody could use a candlelight vigil.

roy-ngerng-vigil

Around 150 individuals turned up for a candlelight vigil event at Hong Lim Park on Sept. 17, 2014, to show solidarity with Roy Ngerng Yi Ling.

The event was organised by two of Ngerng’s friends who wanted to show him that there are a lot of people who are his friends and are concerned about the litigation that he is going through, even though only two of them decided to start a vigil for him.

Candles were placed around the grass, forming the wordings, “ROY” and a short phrase of “We’r W U”, meaning “We are with you” to signify the support the crowd has for Ngerng.

However, this led to some confusion as some supporters were overheard asking, “Who is Wu?”

On May 30, 2014, Ngerng was sued by the Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong for defamation over allegations made in Ngerng’s blog that the latter is guilty of criminal misappropriation of the monies paid by Singaporeans to the Central Provident Fund (CPF).

PM Lee’s lawyer has earlier filed a court application in July for a summary judgement against Ngerng, saying that Ngerng has no defence and the only issue to be determined is damages.

However, the verdict out on Sept. 18, 2014, had the judge rule that he reserved judgement. This means there is no ruling as he is undecided.

But when normal people reserve judgement or don’t do anything, it is known as “procrastination”.

 

Reaction from public at vigil

Members of the public who turned up for the event said that they were there at the candlelight vigil because they felt a need to show moral support to Ngerng at this trying time for him.

Mr Vincent Law who turned up at the event remarked that this event was a peaceful way of showing support to Ngerng and also to show that people are no longer afraid to express their opinions.

Obviously, this guy has never heard of the Internet.

Another woman, Mdm Tan speaking in Chinese, lamented that it was too small a crowd and she felt that people should have turned up for the event since Ngerng made the effort to stand up for their rights. She said that she made a point to come to the event to show her support.

She probably also has not heard of the Internet where people can congregate without leaving home.

Another lady commented that she was there with her husband to support Ngerng, for there are few Singaporeans who would dare voice their opinion out in the public and respect him for his courage.

Obviously, they too also never heard of the Internet.

Mixed sentiments from the crowd on how Ngerng should move on as some encouraged Ngerng to fight on, while some asked him to be mentally prepared to become a bankrupt.

The two friends pledged to hold another vigil for Roy Ngerng when he became bankrupt as the candlelight is expected to help lit a light in his life when he has no money.

Prime Minister’s office to foot the bill

world cup 2014

The Singapore government has ordered Mediacorp to ensure that all World Cup matches are screened on Channel 5 without advertisements and interruptions. Broadcasting the World Cup on this free to air channel, it said, will win the hearts and minds of Singaporeans in light of the clusterfuck that has emerged from the Roy Ngerng saga.

“I last time angry that my money was locked up in CPF, and I couldn’t afford my Singtel subscription. Now I can watch World Cup for free, angry for what?” said Hoh Seh Liao, a recreational football player who regularly sprains his ankles during the weekend.

As it was Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong who ignited the furore by suing CPF blogger Roy Ngerng, it is only befitting that his office should foot the bill.

“Workers’ Party can do this annot? Cannot right? No money right? Nyah nyah nyah nyah nyah,” said PAP spokesperson Dam Chare Dish, when asked if the move was aimed at subduing the opposition.

Note: You might have a better chance winning some money at  world cup 2014 betting, than seeing this actually happening.

When the hammer falls, the hammer falls.

potted-plant

CPF blogger Roy Ngerng’s potted plant outside his HDB flat along the corridor has been investigated for the suspected breeding of dengue mosquitoes.

This after a barrage of sanctions have supposedly been levied on Ngerng, where he was sacked from Tan Tock Seng Hospital yesterday for using Facebook when he should be nursing and speaking on a grass patch over the weekend at Hong Lim Park.

And there are murmurings online that his hawker father has been called out for cleanliness issues at his stall.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who do the mozzie wipeout steps, said they feel the shit this time has really hit the fan.

Hong Gan Leow, a local, said: “First, he got fired. Then his dad kenna arrow for cleanliness. Then now his potted plant suspected of spreading dengue.”

“When they’re out to get you, they’re out to get you. Wonder what would happen next? Roy Ngerng’s dog investigated for suspected rabies and quarantined?”

At press time, Ngerng’s dog has been investigated for rabies and quarantined.

How will Roy Ngerng return all donated funds to each and every individual? PainfulLee, of course.

roy-ngerng-white

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who have a lot of money locked up in their CPF account, agree that CPF blogger Roy Ngerng will be left with a massive administrative headache if things don’t go ahead as he planned.

This after the the blogger raised $70,000 from the public in three days in preparation for his defamation lawsuit filed against him by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.

However, Singaporeans are anticipating PM Lee to pull the most classic political move in the last 50 years of Singapore’s history: By dropping all legal action against the blogger and leaving him with a $70,000 goldmine in his bank account and an epic administrative headache.

One local, Hong Kan Leow, said: “How will Roy Ngerng reverse transfer all the money? And what if people later come out and say they didn’t receive a refund?”

“Ji bai siao liao.”

“And you know what would be an even more classic move pulled by PM Lee after Roy Ngerng really returns all the money to his supporters?”

“File the lawsuit again. Hahahahahaha.”
