I would like to share the following information with you. I’m a resident of Nanyang ward in Chua Chu Kang GRC. It’s at Jurong West area near NTU. Don’t ask me why an area in Jurong can be considered as part of Chua Chu Kang. The MP of Nanyang is none other than the lawyer Alvin Yeo.
In case you are wondering who he is, he’s the guy who represented SMC in the lawsuit against Susan Lim. For those who don’t know about the case, let me summarise: Susan Lim lost her case and was ordered to pay the legal fees of SMC. While going through Alvin Yeo’s bills, Susan Lim felt the bills were inflated and complained to Law Society against him for overcharging. But Law Society dismissed the complaint based on the assertion that Alvin Yeo was not involved in the preparation of the bills, and that there was therefore no misconduct on his part, even though he is a partner in the law firm!
Anyway, back to his guy Alvin Yeo, he suddenly wanted to have a “chit chat session” with us last month. The following invitation was in fact delivered by-hand and was placed at my door. Some more breakfast was provided:
I can honestly tell you that for more than 10 years, we have never received such an invitation. I didn’t bother to go cause I know it’s just a wayang wanting to show that the MP cares. I mean if you really care for us, why wait for more than 10 years to have this “chit chat session” with us?
Just because GE is coming and you are really afraid that you might get kicked out this time? I also felt quite insulted with the free breakfast thrown in to entice us to go. I know some of my neighbours went just for the free makan.
So, Alvin Yeo, if you really care for us, spend more time fixing our problems and ask more pertinent questions in Parliament to let the govt know our problems. Spend less time making your millions representing govt depts to sue people.
The fact that you have been around for some 10 years and you need this chit chat session to find out the problems we are facing, shows that you have been sleeping all these while!
