#baeyforparis trending as a result.


Singaporeans from all walks of life, who recognise what is worthy and what is not, have come out to congratulate the Eiffel Tower.

This after metrosexual PAP MP Baey Yam Keng posted a photo of the Eiffel Tower photoshopped to stand next to him in a tribute Facebook post to those slain during the Friday the 13th Paris attacks.

One Singaporean, Baey Hiao Bai, said this show of solidarity is what is needed in the world now: “I can tell Baey does chest days.”

Other locals said the photo is poignant as the Eiffel Tower is worthy to be standing right next to one of the best things to ever happen to Singapore.

Another local, Liu Hu Shi, said: “This sends a message loud and clear that Singaporeans stand by the Parisians.”

“There is no other way this photo can be construed to mean ‘narcissistic’ or ‘out-of-point’.”

At press time, #baeyforparis is trending on social media platforms worldwide.






Breaking news: Baey Yam Keng had a bad day

Breaking news: Baey Yam Keng had a bad day

You won’t believe what happened.


PAP member of parliament Baey Yam Keng had to crawl in from his car’s back passenger door today to get to his front seat.

He made this announcement on his Instagram.

The incident occurred at a car park where another car was parked very close to Baey’s car, preventing him from opening his car door.

He couldn’t enter from the other door as there was a pillar blocking.

This showed that all his gym workout did not make him a size 1 still.

Someone who probably recognised the MP Baey’s car thought it would be funny to park next to him.

No selfies were available.

It is a metaphor, a psychologist says.


More than a month after dressing up as a full-fledged lesbian, MP Baey Yam Keng has up the ante.

He is now dressed as Waldo, from the bestselling series of books, Where’s Waldo?

His sartorial bent has resulted in chatter among many.

A psychologist, Tao Nao Pai, said: “I think his dressing is a metaphor. He is still finding himself.”

He posts picture that could potentially violate MDA’s appropriate content guidelines.

Singapore’s most metrosexual MP Baey Yam Keng is causing a stir online.

This after he posted a picture of himself online showing him vacationing in Vietnam — dressed up as a lesbian.


Singaporeans from all walks of life and social caste have frowned upon his sharing.

One Singaporean parent of two, Zheng Jin Ren, said: “I don’t know what sort of message he is sending. This is not right.”

The messed-upness of this picture is sending Singaporean society rattling as it is deemed to potentially violate the Media Development Authority’s appropriate content guidelines.

A spokesperson, who declined to be named, said: “This really puts us in a difficult position.”

“I know of societies where such pictures have resulted in court orders demanding the perpetrators be stoned to death.”

It might have been PAP MP Baey Yam Keng.


Many people were definitely shocked when it was announced recently that Joanne Peh and Qi Yuwu had officially gotten together out of the blue.

But few people would have realised who was actually behind Joanne Peh and Qi Yuwu.

Now, photographic evidence below shows that it might have actually been PAP MP Baey Yam Keng who was behind Joanne Peh and Qi Yuwu…

Baey Yam Keng (sort of) finally quits job to be full-time MP

Baey Yam Keng (sort of) finally quits job to be full-time MP

“About f**king time”, says angry taxpayers.

Workers’ Party Chen Show Mao must be thinking: “Haha noob”

Baey Yam Keng — the most meterosexual man in parliament — has finally left his cushy post as managing director at public relations firm, Hill and Knowlton.

Albeit still hanging on as a senior adviser of the company but with less working hours. (So did he really quit? Whatever right? Since The Straits Times unquestioningly said he did, he must have. Always read the fine print!)

And his reason given for finally devoting more time to becoming a full-time MP for Tampines GRC?

Well, constituents in 2012 are actually a lot more difficult to help compared to 2006 when Baey was first elected to the backbencher throne.

Baey said: “Now, there are a lot more avenues for residents to raise issues and I have to act more promptly in responding”. (Editor’s note: This is a real quote from ST. We didn’t make this shit up.)

This also most likely means that constituents in 2006 were suffering in silence because the feedback channels weren’t as many or effective as now and MPs could just walk around thinking they got a handle on things.

Now, angry taxpayers are responding harshly to this delay in PAP MPs turning full-time.

Jiak Liao Bee, a Tampines resident said: “Look at Chen Show Mao! Last year quit his job already! Why so lagging one, this PAP?”

Another resident said: “So does it mean last term Baey Yam Keng work part-time MP get full-time pay is a bit quite chao keng?”

PAP ministers have in the past opposed the idea when opposition parties promised full-time MPs.

Ex-deputy prime minister Wong Kan Seng warned in 2006 that full-time MPs are a bad idea as they would “lose contact with people in business, lose contact with foreigners who come to Singapore.”

Obviously, none of us need to take Wong Kan Seng seriously because he has since effectively disappeared from the limelight after GE2011.

‘We should just move on’

‘We should just move on’

Baey Yam Keng hailed for giving practical advice to bring closure to 1987 Marxist Conspiracy and having ministerial calibre.

Tampines GRC MP and the most metrosexual man in parliament, Baey Yam Keng, said that the best way to bring closure to the Marxist Conspiracy of 1987 is to “just move on”.

The Marxist Conspiracy of 1987 is something that has to do with some Singaporeans being arrested on the basis that they were subversive elements with something revolutionary up their sleeves, but nonetheless, might not necessarily be entirely correct.

Responding to a Facebook query about what should be done to bring closure to that sordid affair 25 years ago, with media attention over the weekend focused on the event’s 25th year anniversary, Baey wrote: “I have responded in the earlier post that we should just move on.”

And it is not as if he is the only one who feels this way.

This sentiment of letting 25 years of time heal all wounds is widely echoed by some members of the public-at-large who have given such a positive outlook their stamp of approval.

An abusive alcoholic father, Lim Kah Tor, said: “I beat my kids everyday for fun and I even pimped one of them. I’m betting that by the time my eldest child turns 35, she’ll be fine.”

Others, such as Yaw Siew Kia, feel that the more time has past, the smaller the problem becomes.

Yaw said: “Whenever I have problems, I think of the dinosaurs. Where will we be in 65 million years’ time? That’s right, we and our problems will effectively become petrol to fuel some other intelligent being’s car.”

Problems are also thought of as a hindrance and are best avoided at all cost.

“If we keep focusing on problems, we cannot enjoy life,” Song Tio Ho, said.

Moreover, PAP activist, Poh Lan Pah, believes Baey has the ministerial calibre of deputy prime minister Teo Chee Hean.

“Yam Keng answered the Facebook question like how Chee Hean did during the Pre-U seminar by replying a question with another question.”

Poh added: “Asking ‘Or do you have any suggestions to have a closure on what happened 25 years ago?’ is a good answer. The DPM did the exact same thing and the result was that it went viral online after that.”

Baey to the rescue: Cancelled Halloween event may get new life at PAP constituency

Baey to the rescue: Cancelled Halloween event may get new life at PAP constituency

Here’s an unexpected twist to the saga that got everyone in Singapore upset.

By Terence Lee

You know how it goes in fairy tales. Damsel in distress gets kidnapped by an evil witch, a White Knight swoops in to save the princess and they live happily ever after.

In this case, the distressed ones are the students at Singapore Polytechnic, whose hard work in organizing an annual Halloween event at the Night Safari evaporated when the evil witch, Wildlife Reserves Singapore CEO Isabelle Loh, cancelled it at the last minute.

Guess who’s the White Knight who came to the rescue? PAP Member-of-Parliament Baey Yam Keng, who is now trying to bring the cancelled event to Tampines, the constituency he’s in charge of. Maybe we got a bit carried away with the analogy, but well, you get the idea. In a Facebook update, he has offered either Sunplaza Park or EcoGreen as alternatives.

“Obviously the community does not have the kind of resources like WRS. But we will see what we can do,” he said.

So how did we find out about this? Ask the Young PAP, who announced the news on their Facebook Page:

Brilliant PR move, if you ask me, but the devil is in the details I guess. How will they deal with existing ticket holders? Would they be able to adopt an event meant for the Night Safari to one suitable for a HDB estate?

Whatever the case, as long as the students have an avenue to finish their project, I’m happy. I wonder what will a Halloween event in Tampines look like…

We’ll update this page with more details as we have them.

As much as The Cabinet wants to maintain a distance, His Leeness could still spring a surprise at an inopportune moment.

By Belmont Lay

It's about time for His Leeness to leave The Cabinet.

SO, what does it REALLY mean for His Leeness and SM Goh Chok Tong to leave The Cabinet?

Honestly, I don’t know and I won’t pretend like I do.

But I’m game enough to hazard a guess.

And truth be told, anyone’s guess is just as good because quite apparently, no one knows what on Earth stepping down entails (because it has never happened before, and hence, shows you the extent of the problem in the first place), although it is driving everyone into a tizzy.

But before we move on with the topic, let’s do everyone a favour and recap who said what.

First in line, Chiam See Tong (bless his soul) claims to be “surprised”. So, he doesn’t exactly know what happens next but his sentiment is shared by 2 million other Singaporeans.

Just so he is famous, his natural reaction becomes news. But that’s ok.

Nothing new here.

Moving along, PAP’s Halimah Yacob says that Singapore is ready to surge ahead without the two ex-Prime Ministers.

Ok, sounds about right, because maybe she knows something we don’t.

Then again, not. This sentiment is probably shared by one million other Singaporeans, especially those who have felt this way since 1959 and who have voted for the Opposition for as long as there were elections (or opposition candidates).

Nothing new here either. So maybe we should check up on the younger folks from the incumbent.

In the all-white corner, Baey Yam Keng feels that rookie MPs like him will finally get a chance to speak out against policies that were implemented during the two ex-rulers’ regime.

Because since they are now gone from The Cabinet, His Leeness and Goh can’t give him a tongue-lashing of a rebuttal.

But sadly, no one agrees with him on this one because everyone knows that wearing all-white means there can be no disagreement.

Because if you were to ask all the PAP MPs if there is groupthink, they will all say “No!” – in unison.

Therefore, never mind that Baey is in the business of public relations. And never mind about the groupthink. And never mind about the irony.

We have the son of a firebrand calling his bluff: Kenneth Jeyaratnam thinks stepping down now is a public relations exercise and all hogwash.

And this view is probably only shared by one thousand other Singaporeans – those who still believe that Kenneth is channeling Joshua Benjamin, his father.

So never mind Kenneth too, because we need someone astute who can give us something piercingly insightful.

And on comes Dr Vincent Wijeysingha (who is awesome) as he welcomes the news of the retirement from The Cabinet as long as such steps to relinquish power is not cosmetic and more widespread, especially in government-linked sectors.

His thinking is so brilliant and so far ahead, I actually thought it is the most enlightening thought of all.

And his running mate, Tan Jee Say, even suggested calling for by-elections in Tanjong Pagar and Marine Parade GRC, because voters voted PAP on the assumption that His Leeness and SM Goh will live as long as there is a Singapore left to serve the constiuents.


Finally, there is even a bear that reckons stepping down is really all arsed.

He can be inside or outside The Cabinet, it doesn’t really matter. His Leeness can easily ditch the title and the salary. But can The Cabinet easily ditch him?

So, to re-iterate, what can any sane Singaporean with an average IQ, take away from all these?

As you can tell by now, the answer is nowhere in between: It is all over the place.

But, well, one can always take a cue from the most quotable quote that sears right into the brain without having to exercise any critical faculties.

We shall bring on Halimah Yacob again.

The Jurong GRC MP said it best with her description of His Leeness: “Singapore is Him and He is Singapore.”


Even though I’m here pulling faces, I kind of feel that she might just be right.

His Leeness might have been taken out of The Cabinet. But surely, there is no way The Cabinet can be taken out of His Leeness.

Simply put, as Halimah has mentioned, He is essentially Singapore.

The fact is that His Leeness is influential, omnipotent and omnipresent. And will be for as long as he is alive and kicking.

He can be inside or outside The Cabinet, it doesn’t really matter.

His Leeness can easily ditch the title and the salary.

But can The Cabinet easily ditch him?

So, here’s the point of today’s missive: His Leeness gives the phrase “old age creeping up on you” a whole new different meaning.

Literally. All 88 years of it.

When you least expect it, he might just sneak up from behind and beat you over the head with a stick.

Just ask George Yeo.

But just don’t ask if the blunt force trauma was intentional or unintentional.

Because uncertainty is the mother of all warnings.
