Not Politic but Peolitics

It is indeed a busy yet happening week for me. On Tuesday’s evening, I accompany Mr Tan Lam Siong, (someone whom I often look up to, not because he is a lawyer by profession but for his personal values in life, and he often share his experience with me which are often thought provoking) for an Opposition Ramadan Party in celebration of his departure of NSP. 

This is the first time in my life that I have seen so many opposition members from different parties gathering together for a meal. I have never like the thought of being seen with the opposition because many of them just want to overthrow the government, all talk no actions, and I believe that if they were to become the government one day, it would definitely be worse. Nevertheless I still accompany Mr Tan, as he is my personal friend and mentor, and his ideology of politics is different from the rest of the people, one that he named it as “Peolitics” he is definitely not one to oppose but one to propose.

After the dinner, we went to NTUC at Bedok to buy the items for the distribution at Tampines. Upon reaching there, we 扫空 the whole NTUC of their Bread, Maggie Noodles, and Biscuits. The shoppers at that time keep looking at us as they are shocked at the amount of the items that we are buying. Then we explain that we are there to buy for tomorrow’s distribution and they praised us for our actions.

I had little sleep, and as I have to wake up very early in the day to prepare for the distribution. We reach 499C Tampines Ave 9 at 9am in the morning, Together with MP Baey Yam Keng, staff of Gremio Capital Pte Ltd, volunteers from Project Awareness and Happy people, plus my buddy Elson Soh, we went door to door distribution to more than 100 over units in the block.

Many of the residents know MP Baey as he is very active in helping his residents in Tampines area. We can see residents waving at him from far, coming up close to speak to them and praise his hardwork all these while serving them, and taking pictures with him personally. Through these acts, we can see that MP Baey really served his residents well and is very very well-liked by his residents there. 

All of us sweat ourselves out throughout the whole journey but it was fulfilling seeing the residents and helping the families in Tampines. Once again, I would like to thank everyone for coming down and volunteer on a Wednesday morning!  

After the distribution, we went to House of Seafood at Punggol Point Branch for lunch. Thank you boss Francis Ng, for the very well prepared lunch, and it was a good spread for all of us. MP Baey enjoyed both the Chilli Crab and Black Pepper Crab prepared by the chef. Thank you Cindy, the pretty marketing manager from House of Seafood, for coming down to the branch to welcome all of us.

We are glad that yesterday’s collaboration between Project Awareness, Happy People and MP Baey Yam Keng was a great success, as we are there to help Tampines Resident and low income family to create a racial harmony day was a great success! Hope everyone who came down to support enjoyed themselves too!

On a side note, did you saw me in yesterday’s Lianhe Wanbao? :)
