"In 2001 a tourist in North Korea went down to the hotel lobby to ask if she can use the telephone. There was only one in hotel, after she used it, the N. Korea bellhop looked at her
and asked, "Madam, don't mind me asking, you mean you have telephones back in your country? I thought such advanced devices existed only in North Korea!".....
Singapore is such a well managed and efficient country. I would think so because during this election period, we are constantly reminded by the media of how excellent the PAP is and few in the world can come close. I really pity people living in other countries where the govt is less efficient than the PAP. Of course in countries such as the USA where anyone can become President, congressman or senator without going through a rigorous selection process, life must be terrible and chaotic.
Last year I went to Los Angeles. That was a terrible place. The public transport inadequate for a Singaporean like myself, and most of the people there are forced to drive even the waiter who served me at the Chinatown drives. Poor feller...he is forced to pay for such an expensive mode of transport. I went to the public library and found they have copied Singapore's system of self-service libray loans, in fact the systems/machines were almost to Singapore's. When I ate at the food court at Macy's downtown shopping center, I found that each food stall has a grade A, B or C. EXACTLY the same as Singapore. Even the size of the letter and font is the same. I suggest the PAP govt patent such ideas so that other places cannot copy it. What Los Angeles don't have is our ERP system, COE and HDB. Thank goodness, they are unable to copy us in those advanced areas.
Without HDB flats, I guess they can't copy our govt's brilliant idea for this elections - a lift that stops at every floor. This is the promise for the elections and only the PAP is able to fulfil this promise. It really means alot to most Singaporeans. The PAP says that this election is about the future and a lift that stops at every floor certainly represents a bright future for us all in Singapore. So remember when you vote your vote is link to the future of your lifts in your block. Do you want them to stop at every floor or not?! That is the crucial question for most voters in this election. You just have to use common sense to decide.
The media will help you to focus on this crucial issue as other issues fall back to the background.
