Celebrating Singaporeans: Ho Ching

The East is getting redder. That's what Mao said in his heydays. Yes the world is changing and changing so rapidly. Of the 3 women that were voted the most powerful or influential in the world by Forbes, two were from Asia. Wu Yi, a deputy premier of China is ranked number 2. And Ho Ching, a private business excutive, CEO of Temasek, is number 3. Wu Yi is from the world's most populous nation, and moving fast to become an economic power. And Ho Ching, from a little red dot, one of the tiniest nation. She even out ranked Condolezza Rice and woman Presidents and Prime Ministers. Her achievements even outshine LKY and Hsien Loong in being ranked in the top three by Forbes. LKY and Hsien Loong have never been in the top ten. She is not only a giant in a little red dot but in the international community. Wow!

but that's life isn't it. the prince or the rich man's son always have more money and opportunities to play big right?

what great work do you think prince charles or princess diana has done to deserve all the greatness?

She has got to that point without having to risk her own money.

Building a business by yourself is different from using other peoples money, and TRILLIONS at that.

shakespear in twelve night said this,

'some are born great, some achieve greatness, some have greatness thrust upon them.'

it is your life man. if your life is good, all goodness will come to you. even jesus said, those who have, more will be added unto them.

Some put down others in order to achieve greatness.

The Red Bean brand has been built over the last months of delivering a better blog for the people. Despite the occasionally discontentment and anger voiced by the fellow bloggers, there is this long term trust between the bloggers and Red Bean. This bond that is built over so many months is seeing signs of cracks. Once broken, it is going to be difficult to mend.

The constant criticism against anonymous participation by calling them sh*t-eaters who won't leave despite the stench and now this thing called "this blog is rated PG" to welcome Red Bean's brand of vulgar humor and cohorts, is going to tear away at this trust. The bloggers are having doubts. The bloggers are unhappy that their opinions and feeback are no longer valued or even accepted the way they were before. The trust is eroding away.

Do not lose this trust or it will be tough to get it back again. We are now witnessing the slide down the slippery road. No matter how good is the intention, unfortunately not many believe in these new changes in Red Bean blog, never meddle with the blogger's life feelings. Never!
