Dr Chee lives in a three room flat. He is the kind of person who well understands through first hand experience, the daily grind of the common folk.

However, between Dr Chee and Mr Murali, Dr Chee's variety of work experiences is actually richer and more relevant to an MP's duties as compared to Mr Murali's. Unlike Mr Murali who can only claim expertise in matters of law in parliament, Dr Chee has given talks to international audiences and written books and papers published by leading newspapers and magazines in a variety of topics including economics, politics, law, democracy and so on.
