SPH publishes flattering photo of Chee Soon Juan

Posted on 30 November 2012

Singaporeans rush to buy 8743 4D lottery number for this weekend.

Singapolitics, the quaint little website run by Singapore Press Holdings that aims to rival The Online Citizen while not writing anything disparaging about the PAP, has published a two-part lengthy interview with SDP chief Chee Soon Juan.

Come on, who’s a happy boy now? Come on…

Not only is the photo accompanying the interview flattering, showing a toothy Chee, it does not contain disparaging captions reminding readers that he is an “ex-bankrupt”, for example.

Many Singaporeans were surprised by this rare turn of events causing thousands to flock to the lottery shops to try their luck.

This has caused the 4D lottery number 8743 for this weekend to sell out by Friday evening.

“8-7-4-3″ in Mandarin sounds like “Huat, Chee Soon Juan”.

    hmm…perhaps you mean hokkien or another dialect. 8743 in mandarin is “ba-qi-si-san”
