Happy Times are here
Today the ST generously gave space on its front page to Hsien Loong making bak chang and an equally happy Yeo Guat Kwang on his side. You can see that they are genuinely very happy people without a care and living a life of plenty. Swiss standard of living is here.
Back in my mind I was wondering how many Sinkies are enjoying the same kind of lifestyle with the wonderful growth that the country is chalking up all these years. If only more Sinkies can enjoy everyday the way Hsien Loong and his ministers and MPs are enjoying, having simple joy of making bak chang and enjoying every moment of it, the govt would have done it. It will really be a success story to tell the world, that we have achieved in building a country of happy and affluent people.
And he would not need to apologise for doing things wrong and no need to exhort the people on the need for more migrants to shore up the economic growth for the good of the people. Everything will take care of itself if more citizens can flash the same kind of happy smile. What I am seeing is that the happy smiles are on the faces of many foreigners here. Even the grandpas and grandmas of foreign talents strolling in the estates with their grandchildren are looking very contented with their lives here. You can see that they are really enjoying every moment of it like they are in paradise, a place where there is no worries, the good life.
