This just made my day. I like most male Singaporeans have to serve National Service till we are 40 and our dearest PM just commented that we are too old.

Thank you very much, Singapore.

I dun get it. He's talking about Foreigners or 1st Gen arrivals lately whom Singaporeans complain that they dun serve NS like us. Not reservist training friend.

Nothing was said about you being too old. I think you didn't really understand what he was trying to say.

either that or the blogger just twist it to his own views.

thus the word; subjective.

after reading Rexy's comment, I kind of see his view.....

But nonetheless, I have this growing feeling of being short-changed as a Singaporean. I dunno if anyone feels this way...

I din really bother about the blogger cos like most of them, they are all fulla crap.

I read the article itself. 3 times just to be sure that I understood what PM was actually saying.

I didn't read a single thing about him saying NSmen being too old at 40 or such. Its unfortunate that people took it that way.

that is why PAP would probably lose their strength when people in our generation take over and forgotten are the days where PAP worked so hard to make singapore where we are today.

MC , step forward and make yourself counted .... its so much easier to say thing from the sidelines ....

The new book on PAP is a very good read as well as MM's autobiography .... in our midst of peace and rapid progress, do not forget how things can still be fragile .. look around us and you'll see .... count our blessings that we can golf , go and have a good time drinking , partying while politics is left to real serious people who's night and day is spent worrying how to steer and shape Singapore to face the ever changing future .. we are blessed and to have leaders like our Minister Mentor , SM Goh , PM Lee and his Cabinet .. do not take things for granted ...

so sorry for my 2 cents ... Have a happy and fun weekend .. Very Happy

mr lam, do not get me wrong. i am a LKY/PAP supporter.

I am a well-travelled individual and have seen enough poverty and suffering to appreciate what our great leaders have done.


what i stated is the general perception of the youth nowadays. i am not sure if you agree with me but we just have too many individuals who are vocal and influential to spread their ideals and thoughts on the world wide web. and the minds of most youths out there are easily swayed, influenced and washed.

MC, i never doubted for a second you are not .... Smile apologies if i have made that representation ... buy you a beer when we have the time ...

i agree with you on what you said ... life is so comfy here that our younger generation forgotten what we have been through ... hard to blame though ... they have not seen with their eyes even though tele at times got show... it takes personal experiences to etch it in ... let leave the serious business to serious people , lets play more golf .. Majulah Singapura !!!

But if you all younger people have the time , volunteer your services in any way you can ... i never regretted the time i spent doing that and i have learned so much ... we still have some very poor people here in Singapore ... and they dont know where to go for help ..
