Won our hearts 虽败犹荣

Posted: August 28, 2011 in Others 其他

Even though Dr Tan Cheng Bock did not ultimately win the presidential election, he had truly won many Singaporeans’ hearts. We are proud of him. To many of us, he is the president in our hearts.




This Saturday is the voting day for us to choose our president.

I wrote this not because I’m in the Tan Cheng Bock campaign team but I felt a very strong urge to help him to get people to know more about him. I think, it must be his passion for us- Singaporeans, that moved me.

I’m writing this out of my own will and hope that you would seriously take some time to know the presidential candidates, in order to make a wise choice. However, voting is personal and I do respect your choice, no matter if you ultimately decided to vote for Dr Tan Cheng Bock. 😉

All these years he has been brave to speak out in Parliament, and am not afraid to stand by his principles. He decided to contest, feeling the need to unify Singaporeans, not because he need the $4m/yr pay or he wants to oppose PAP for the sake of it. He speaks out whenever he thinks something is not right, not because he wanted people to vote for him. He says things as it is, not like “beng-satay” flip and flop, back and forth, keep changing sides (不像烤沙爹,翻来翻去).

I felt we need someone who is not too close to the ruling party, in order to make independent decisions on guarding the reserves, and yet close enough to understand how the party works. Someone who truly cares for Singaporeans and will act based on conscience. Dr Tan Cheng Bock fits the bill. A presidential candidate who placed national interest above party’s interest when he was an MP for 26 years.

I have people around me who do not even care. I hope you will take some time to get to know the candidates, and make a wise choice.
