Dr Mahathir Barking Up The Wrong Tree Again

It is disheartening to learn that still revered Dr Mahathir taking another swipe at Malay Singaporeans in his sinister attempt to rev up racial sentiments in his own country. Tun, what is so wrong for Singapore to adopt meritocracy for all races? By the same breadth, what is so right that his bumi-policies did benefit just one race at the expense of rest of the races in his own beloved Malaysia? Just because Chinese is the majority race in Singapore, the minority has to 'kow-tow' to the majority, so claimed by him.

If he is admitting that the position of the Malays in Malaysia is in deep crisis and precarious, does he need to draw comparison to the Malays in Singapore to strike a salient point. For once, why can't he admit that his failed bumi-policies only benefit a privileged few; those who have initimate connections to the ruling party and thus, largely neglected the majority of the Malays in Malaysia? And just because Singapore does not have such lop-sided bumi-policies for her own Malay race, our Malays have to resort to 'kow-towing'? What craps, Dr M...are you out of your mind or what? Your failed policies have nothing to do with the Malays in Singapore. The Malays here study and work as hard as the Chinese, the Indians and other races and they compete fairly to give themselves a better life here, period. They certainly need no 'spoon-feeding' from our government to have a headstart, merit is the order of the day that applies to all Singaporeans.

I have no doubt to believe he is genuinely concerned for his own race in his own country and he has certainly contributed alot as the 4th PM of Malaysia. However downplaying Singapore which has nothing to do with his own failed bumi-polices is certainly uncalled for. Tun, please keep your own backyard clean, just mind your own business and shut up, will you?

Baan Dada Charity Ride 2013

It is another Bike-Aid Singapore's initiative and this time, Nicky was our lead organiser and he was ably assisted by Ler and Jennifer, both of whom have had involved in many fund raising in Singapore, Thailand and the region over the years.  Jennifer and Ler have cemented close relationship with some Thais in the biking community and best of all, they can also converse in the ear- soothing Thai language, certainly a plus for us.  And also, not forgetting, June, the ever young looking wife of Nicky who has been providing the admin support with flight reservation, the program proper, etc and during the 3 days cycling tour, following the cycling entourage in the support vehicle.  June has been a great help throughout, ensuring we were hydrated that kept us going and going.  And there is another lovely spouse of David and she is Ivy who has also been great in providing the vital support to the entourage.  Co-incidentally, this is also the 10th year for Bike-Aid Singapore to organise …

Fruit buffet for our taking  Admittedly, this is a tour not meant for any typical tourist. One has to love the outdoor, prepared to rough it out somewhat and sometimes, have to get wet to really enjoy the trip. In all there were 42 who joined me for this one day trip up north to Johor. We even had a gregarious lady who flew in from New Zealand to join us. Her name is Alison, a Briton who lives in New Zealand and this is what she has penned after her trip and I quote, "Thanks so much for this great and varied trip Collin. Mountain climbing, pampering, the fruit farm and all the lovely food made for a great day. Thanks for info below Kevin- yes definitely in no rush to eat chempedak again!! Great group and lovely to see so many of you again from previous meet-ups too :-)". Hers is not the only good review, we hav…
