not many mps courting the housewives for votes

in parliament, several mps or only two mps spoke up for housewives. only irene ng made a decent plea to recognise the works of housewives. what the housewives are doing would have to be done if they stop doing it. and the works need to be paid. steve chia's explanation about national service is rather less tangible. the housewives are working and performing a job that has economic value. just so simple. but maybe the housewives are too busy staying home and will not go to the voting centres. so no need to take them seriously. if they do, make sure they vote for irene and steve chia. and where is that organisation called aware. probably they did not know that housewives worked. ya, tai tais don't work. tai tais in aware don't work. only ah sohs in the heartlands work as housewives.

Relac lah budder. Some women stay home, some have careers. It's a personal choice lah. And that means it is of "value" to the beholder, whether or not the state recognises it.

But if you want to kick in feminist heads at AWARE, I'll annoint you with Sacred Oil...you have my blessing!

no lah, i am not kicking anyone lah. just wonder where all the champions of women's right have gone and why they are not saying anything for their less able aunties in the heartland.

alamak, AWARE is f ull of shit lah. As if you'd think they'd fight for their "fellow woMAN" - gimme a break... these gals are worse than men lah when it comes to competition.

They are all professionals and only interested in themselves - their precious careers, their "magazine" lifestyles and the belief that they can juggle career, motherhood and lover into their lives.

These poor-excuses for womanhood are too busy with their yoga, pilates, shoping and spas to worry about their poorer sisters.

There. I've fired the first salvo against AWARE.

So bite me gals :-)
