The Chairman and Minister without Portfolio of
PAP Lim Boon Heng (LBH) crying unashamedly, What a sad sight !!
by Patrick Lee Song Juan on Tuesday, April 12, 2011 at 11:13pm
Nothing is permanent in life. Why should one cried on national TV after enjoying 25 years of fame , fortune and power? And the person who shed mama's tears was no other than Minister without Portfolio Lim Boon Heng...Even before his tears were dried, he said that he would not want to be President of S'pore!! Why be a puppet?
Money is never enough...heartbreaking to all the poor and destitute of S'pore, to the world's poor people. Ironically, LBH cried now regretfully because of his 'moral courage' to defy and to block the casino from taking root in S'pore. By his own words, to create jobs for S'poreans and with great irony 70% or more landed in foreigner hands..We S'poreans were short-changed ! And worst social fallout...many S'poreans have become compulsive gamblers due to the casinos !
LBH mentioned about 'group-thinking' or no group-thinking in cabinet circles??..... So there were differing views too.......How the hell policies ever be blocked but always passed through ?? That is the majority voice ! And yet PM LHL said...they never over-ruled LBH ??
A Chairman from PAP's CEC retiring under emotional display !! Something amiss? LBH, should write a memoir and bare all to tell the truth and nothing but the true the circumstances you are being superannuated !! You were Woody Goh's blue -eyed boy when he became PM. You rose with your former boss GCT from NOL.. When GCT was PM , your path was really paved with prime-rose all the way!
Take heart LBH, retirement for you mean better things to come....Less responsibility but still earning big bucks and pension fund for life...Since most of your life you are doing the best for the old folks and also Chairman of the 3rd Age, why don't you set up your own personal organisation, to seriously involve in the welfare of the old poor folks. If you do that, I will be the first one to volunteer free to organise wellness events for the old folks for your organisation to interact and live meaningful life. I have volunteer for S'pore Action Group for the Elders (SAGE) for years..I am a voice and volunteer for the poor and old folks. I give wellness talks organised by ARA (Active Retirees Association and blog too.
Years ago when I was having lunch with Rohan Kamis (ex-PAP MP) at Esplanade in a Japanese restaurant , you walked by (with two bodyguards) to chat with Rohan and I had a few words with you too..You will never remember I guess !!.And when you led a delegation of Union members to Shanghai...Co-incidentally I met you at a restaurant and we exchanged a few greetings. I was on vacation then.. And you never would have remembered a schoolmate in me from Montfort Secondary. Our social gap was and is too wide for you to notice me....To this day Rohan Kamis and me are still having monthly lunch. Have not seen Chan Soo Sen for a long while after I left Joo Chiat CC, though I still email him off and on.
Please do something really meaningful now for the S'pore poor since 'you are going out of the grasp of PAP'. You have no restriction to do what you like and that is true happiness that no amount of money can buy !!Life is free, I can understand your gratitude to PAP that have given you a wonderful life though with many constraints and restraints........
In our journey through life we should answer to our moral obligation when we really have the freedom and capability to give others' the happiness that many poor, deprived, destitute citizens and old folks can never ever smell what it is like ?
In uplifting others life, we uplift our sense of well-being and self-worth too....Money can never buy self-worth nor real happiness!! In helping others we bring smile not only to them but to ourselves too.
Let us do it right for our fellow humankind....LBH you are the chosen one to begin with !! I am not joking...Show your worth when you now have the free hand to do it !! Leave behind a legacy as the Chairman for "The 3rd Age" of refinement!

ZiRui..please do not call me sir...Wellness of life and helping others can be done in many ways as long as we do not harbour a personal agenda of selfishness.
Politics bring about the light and dark side of human manipulation. Many enter for... the fame, fortune and power. The real ones enter for a better tomorrow. But when power over-rides, many a human can become devils.
Till nomination day, we will never know who is in and who is not! I have too many constraints to begin with...See More

Politics for me is out of the question, and it will be good money ($100,000..though peanuts to the ministers' pay) for helping the poor old folks. But 100,000 may not run a Welfare home for long....

Well Patrick ,you are right but a candidate needs to have that balance and it doesnt mean that when someone gets charged up the changes of winning is higher,the answer is No ,s'poreans dont look at this kind of characteristic ,you can see t...oday that SDP has lost all this while because thy are politically charged up,they dont know the stragedies how to win the elections.And we see PAP winning all the while with 20% walkabouts ,interaction with the public or you can say even none,most residents have not even seen them for years but they still win.So to win the elections is a numbers game,sadly none of the opposition parties knows how to win the elections.See More

@Patrick, is it unfair to "label" a party that will "nailed" or that is "looking for something to discredit" another party. Voting is secret, and the very essence of its secrecy is enough for us to be able to make a value judgement and sur...ely will not approve such ungentleman-like behaviour or worst, they wiill lose support. Therefore, no party competing in an election will succumb to such tactics, as it will only belittle own credibility, Hence, as I said, it is unfair to mention those words.See More
