I read comments in the social media about Tin Pei Ling, MP for Marine Parade GRC. Most of the comments were critical of her and were rude.

I observed her performance in Parliament and in the constituency and got the impression that she tries very hard to be a good MP. She even gave up her full time job to devote all her time to her job as a MP. It is commendable.

During the Lunar New Year, I met an old colleague who is now serving as a volunteer in an old folks home in Geylang East. The MP for the home is Tin Pei Ling.
He told me that Tin Pei Ling is a dedicated MP. The management of the old folks home brought up a few issues that required her attention. They involved several government agencies. She worked hard on these issues and solved them over a few months.

The management committee had raised the same issue with the previous MP (name to be undisclosed). He promised to help but did not do anything for a few years.

He had a good impression of Tin Pei Ling as a MP. I agree with his view. This is the same impression that I had, reading the news about here activities in the constituency.
I like to share this story, so that other people will judge her objectively and fairly.

The rude comments that I read about her were unfair, and reflect poorly on the commentator.
