My sacroiliac joints already hurt. And I’m only half way. Oh dear.

Child labour

all work considered

Looking for work as a yard helper. All work considered, no jobs too small. Reasonable rates.

Yes, I’m kidding.

I swear, if she didn’t exit via my birth canal

Me: Do you want to wear this dress?

(It’s a dress I bought for my niece that she has since outgrown and it’s been handed down.)

Anne: Yes! I like it! … it’s got flowers!

WHOSE CHILD IS THIS??!!

Ignorance is strength

What is the government trying to hide?, asks Andrew Loh. According to the PAP-led government, only the Lee Kuan Yew version of Singapore’s (post-war-leading-to-independence) history is the correct one, all other potentially dissenting accounts are self-serving, a threat to national security, or virtually inciting violence (i.e, the national security argument again).

It’s a tough one. Singaporeans have been coddled for so long that we are certainly very immature in some ways, but we’re not idiots. Trying to control the official version of history only serves to make the defenders look even more out of touch with reality.
