AH CHYE COFFEE STALL: GOOD COFFEE SERVED WITH SINCERE HONESTY

I paid for our kopi and toast breakfast at Ah Chye coffee with a $50 note and absentmindedly walked off without collecting the change. Realising this only a few days later, I had little hope they would remember about the incident but decided to speak to them about it anyway. To my pleasant surprise, they not only remembered that I had left without collecting the change, but returned the money in a neatly folded plastic bag labelled with the amount of change.

5 QUESTIONS DR CHEE HAS TO ANSWER WITH HONESTY BEFORE I GIVE HIM MY VOTE

After fifteen years in the political wilderness, Dr Chee Soon Juan made his comeback and boy did he awe the audience with his silky smooth public speaking skills. It made the days of him blabbering unsubstantiated accusations and pencant for civil disobedience look like something from his distant past.

HRI KUMAR: REFORM PARTY’S KENNETH JEYARETNAM IS DISHONEST & PUT WORDS IN MY MOUTH

During the breakout session, his views were roundly demolished by the other participants in his group. Because they did not agree with him, he claims they were “planted”. Of course, they were not planted. They were just ordinary Singaporeans who were frank in giving their views. Mr Jeyaretnam should not insult people just because they don’t agree with him. After, the Forum, he posted a note entitled “8 Dishonest Things About Hri Kumar’s Honest Conversation”. He attributed to me things I did not say, and mischievously misrepresented other points. In the interests of transparency, I have posted videos of the Forum so that you can judge for yourself.
