“In a democracy, someone who fails to get elected to office can always console himself with the thought that there was something not quite fair about it.” ― Thucydides, The History of the Peloponnesian War.
In Singapore, someone who fails to get elected to office can always console himself that next round, he can always tompang a coattail.
Recently a series of the age-old "You Have Two Cows" joke went viral. For example:
Socialism: You have two cows. The government takes one and gives it to your neighbour.
Communism: You have two cows. You give them to the government, and the government then gives you some milk.
Fascism: You have two cows. You give them to the government, and the government then sells you some milk.
Capitalism: You have two cows. You sell one and buy a bull.
So I thought we ought to have an Asian edition.
In fact, this series of images, a larger collection of which was first shared on my Facebook Page , became so viral I thought what the heck, I would write some more Two Cows slides and create a video slideshow of it.
PM said on his Facebook page: “Lui Tuck Yew has told me that he does not wish to stand again in the coming General Election, and I have reluctantly accepted his decision. He had told me this early this year. My senior colleagues and I tried hard to change his mind, and are disappointed that we did not succeed.”
If I were his colleagues, I also don't want him to leave lor. Or else might become the next fella to kena arrow.

When Twitter approached me to launch the first ever Twitter emojis for Singapore, I was thrilled because I am an emoji and sticker addict. The emojis show up when you type # followed by Singapore or # followed by SG50, in Twitter. It only lasts for this month, so enjoy spamming them while you can.
