I don’t understand this fellow any longer.

May 6, 2014

He was quoted by Zee News India as saying that “Singaporeans, new arrivals, people who are on permanent residence here, people who are on employment pass here, (are) all participating in one big Singapore family … So that we feel that this is a place which is special, which belongs to all of us and where we all celebrate one another’s festivals and happy events together.”

I don’t understand what his goal is any longer…if it is to foster unity and cohesiveness, then he seems to have a strange way of going about it. Really. I simply, I don’t understand him any longer…don’t care too either.


‘There are certain things that a man can do and there are certain things that he simply cannot and should not do.

This is for lack of a better word is the summation of what life is all about and the principle is as old as the hills…the wisdom to know what is right from wrong, what’s proper and simply out of line…ants cannot do this. But humans can, that is why we are at the top of the food chain – for example, should a man take another wife. He should still love, respect and honor his first wife.

He cannot treat her like a stranger and allow her to beg in the streets just because he is enamoured with his new wife – after all, his first wife was the woman who stood by him thru thick and thin when all he had was his two guli’s and very little else. She may not have been perfect, but nonetheless she was once the pillar in his life and the love of his life – should this man just decide to forget this, then what does it say about him along with his values?

Perhaps his second wife should reconsider, if such a man can be so ungrateful to the woman who once made him the man that he is – then how secure is she really in this man’s love?

Perhaps when this man has grown tired and bored of her and takes to a third or fourth wife, her fate will not be so different from the sad story of the first wife – in which case, why even devote oneself to a man who simply doesn’t understand that in this world – there are certain things that a man can do and there are certain things that he simply cannot and should NEVER do!

I have a feeling no planter will ever talk to such a fellow lah…this man could claim the right of lineage to the highest of the high, but in the fraternity of those who belong to the serious men…he is just a very inferior person who simply doesn’t value his roots or for that matter understand how he should behave and this has to be very dangerous…..such a man will always be a liability to those who choose to call him friend.’
