By now, most people and their mothers have seen Avatar, James Cameron's latest big budget movie. If you haven't, I suggest you stop reading this column, get out from under that rock you have been living under, and go forth to watcheth the movie. Because after this paragraph, I am going to talk about the movie a lot and you might blame me for giving away the ending that Darth Vader is really Luke's father.
Are all the losers who have yet to see the movie gone yet? Good. Let us begin. (cont'd)
A certain Eric How, allegedly a Young PAP (YPAP) member, got into a flame war with some 3in1kopitiam forumers on Facebook and posted this little gem:
"Do not be bitter and go on slapping on the Government senselessly because you did not get any fruits or benefits from your forefather. You will have to blame on your karma or your forefathers for not getting all the paths right for their off springs. My folks did the right thing by getting all the stuffs ready for us and we will never ever need to nag about the Government giving jobs to foreigners instead of locals. In fact, we create jobs for others. Our folks even make sure that we guys do not need to squeeze into public transport by getting each of us a personal car.
The job market is an open competition whereby the best person gets the job and not because of nationalities. Buck up and do something right for you’re off springs so that they will be thankful to you and not turn up to be like you guys nagging senselessly.
I think Mr Eric How is right. Don't blame the gahmen for your lack of fruits and benefits! Blame your own suay karma! Blame your forefather! Who asked your loser forefathers to be useless coolies slogging away at some blue collar job? It is their fault for not setting you up with jobs and careers!
Look at Mr Eric How! His parents did the right thing by "getting all the stuffs ready" for him. No need to rely on the gahmen for jobs! Mommy and Daddy set him up good!
In fact, his Mommy and Daddy "create jobs for others", ok? We should THANK the likes of Eric How and his family for our jobs and for not being a burden to the state.
And if you feel that public transport has been less crowded lately, you can thank this Eric How and his family too! His Mommy and Daddy got him and his siblings a personal car each, so that they don't need to squeeze into the MRT and buses and add to the congestion!
How can we ever thank this Eric How and his loaded elite family for their benevolence and love for the common man? They are so considerate!
If only YPAP had more members like Eric How who truly care for the masses and contribute so much to the good of the nation!
It's the first day of school for Singapore and in our case, also for our family. We took Isaac for his first day at school and it was quite an adventure. If you consider driving more than an hour in a mad traffic jam an adventure. It felt like the entire country was heading for school.
It is now recess time and the wife and I are trying to be incognito while we soak in the activities. We just want to observe without Isaac seeing us there. Not that he has any problems settling in anyway. I think his Mom is more anxious than he is.
