11 year old selling CD to pay for eye surgery



I was won over by the bubbly nature of this precocious little girl when she performed at the President’s Charity Show. She was confident, intelligent and very mature for her age. It was so painful to see her living life without sight. She was born with opaque cornea and unable to see.

Yerterday TRE carried an article of adelyn Koh composing songs and selling her CDs to raise fund for her eye operation. It is going to cost her $40k per eye and a total of $80k for both eyes. I wish the hospital could have done it for her for $8. It would be so nice and I will willingly pay for it.

The richest country in the world with the most millionaires per capita, and there is this little girl being left to fend for herself, to raise money on her own, for the badly needed surgery. She had done 4 operations without success. It was reported that she has just operated on one eye and still trying to raise the balance to pay for the next eye.

Wonder how much we paid for the conjoint twins for the operation held here several years back. Is there an eye surgeon willing to do a little charity to charge her less, to give her sight, to live like a normal child? Would the govt….never mind.

I am also willing to pay the $8 in full too

I believe that the only person that can give her a free and successful eye operation is none other than Dr Vivian Bala.
He should not miss this opportunity to show his talent and kindness.

If any Singaporean Eye Specialist has eye, just one will do, to see and heart to feel, someone would have volunteered.
Or,
if anyone else with the money was kind enough, she could be seeing now.

What about our Miistry Of Health? It is not able to make it cheaper for her treatment?

Cannot must charge market price. Fair market value. No over charge, no under charge, the market mechanism shall prevail.

Don't we have an eye surgeon in the cabinet somewhere?

What more do you want?
Three invitations from the newspapers, internet or TV?

Hand dexterity not good now for operating on the eye.

PRC government despite of how wicked it is, has been for recent years trying its best to build a universal healthcare system.

The fledgling system is still young and PRC is still poor, but as PRC grow richer, the days of free healthcare is in sight.

We are a rich country. Singaporeans are kind and gentle. All of us want universal health and we can afford it. Just take out 50% from parasitic SAF we can have free healthcare. Even then, we will still be a very militarize country than our neighbours.

The only person that hates universal healthcare is LKY. He is the blocking stone for all our happiness.

The philosophy of communism is meant to build a utopia on earth. It was an idealistic philosophy built from Jesus' communal living and common good.

The bad light on communism was due to its bad beginning which normally makes communism attractive when capitalism was at its worst, when the rich poor divide at the widest and the poor were trampled by the rich and a bloody revolution started to rob the rich of their loot.

When the communists become rich, when a communist country becomes rich, the wealth will be distributed more downwards, at least that is the theory.

The cruelty of communist as in PRC were in the early days and those happening today are due to the failings of human beans, the corrupt officials, not communism.

relax redbean.

This little hero is showing the world, not just Singapore, that she has the entrepreneurial DRIVE based on her taking responsibility for her life and its challenges, and engaging in private enterprise to take care of her self-interest, so that she could live a BETTER life.

She's given the welfare state the "fuck you, I don't need nor want your EXPENSIVE help".

She should be groomed for Prime Minister lah.

You fuckers are a bunch of welfare-seeking buffoons. Get a life lah.

Generally, the bad things occur in communist government because of extreme violent in class struggle. The earliest China communist leader was Chen Duxiu, himself is a very kind, gentle man. He is not a hypocrite like Mao and Zhou Enlai.

As class struggle get violent, ultra cunning and ruthless military genius like Mao ascend. If Chiang Kai Shek can implement land reform when he was in power or if not for the bankruptcy of China due to Japanese invasion, Mao will be wipe out the next day.

When communist are able to gain power on polls, they tends to be less ruthless. Many Social Democratic parties in Europe form government in Europe have roots in communism. LKY arrest of Lim Ching Siong, Chia Thye Poh and those Barisan Socialist is one of the most dirtiest act.

You can find money to fund a cost over-run of $300 million dollars for a party for foreigners in YOG.
You can even find money for a Canadian YOG volunteer for a heart attack medical treatment.

But you cannot find money and heart for a Singaporean girl?

So what are we fighting for?
What are we NatConning ourselves for?
There is no nation.
There is no country.
What are we sacrificing ourselves for?

Fat hope. You want me to do the operation in a hawker centre, food court or restaurant?

Anonymous said...

I thought the operation should be $8 and not $80K, since we have heart bypass going for $8.

Bala will do it for $80K, but certainly not for $8. For $8 he will only do it for those fat pigs in white or the priviliege class.

This is a good example showing how poor we are despite the phenomenal GDP growth. What is the use of telling the world how well do do and yet we can give those who need medical care the opportunity. I think the country has lost its heart and soul. It is obssesed with making money at all costs, disregarding the under privilledged citizens who fell through the cracks. Sad!

Matilah_Singapura said...

I would do the operation for free.

Unfortunately, I'm an amateur gynecologist...I know sweet fuck all about operating on the eye.

Work done for free comes with no guarantee. However, I endeavour to always do my best.

My field of interest is gynecology, not cosmetic surgery.

Cosmetic surgery tends to appeal to the vanity aspect of human nature. I prefer gynecology because of its "deeper" and "tighter" focus. I have no interest is fixing some chick's flappy beef curtains to conform with some arbitrary (women's magazine?)standard of "aesthetics", however I will poke around to see if there's that requires fixing, or to restore proper function.

Naturally, I adopt the highest standards of professional conduct and medical decorum at all times, even though gynaecology is a hobby.

Gynaelogical Tip For The Day: Ladies, for proper hygeine, wipe front to back; and you'll avoid embarassing social issues or worse still, hygeine risks later.

Always happy to oblige ladies, you're welcome.

To think Adelyn Koh played on the President Charity Show during Nathan's time as president which raised $10 Million and yet the present president cannot even come out to help her for only $80,000 by getting one of the organisation to help.Well, what can I say.

I agree with Veritas. All especially kids below 18 should be entitled to free healthcare.

Thank you anon 6:17, for keeping a check on Matilah's health.

National Conversation is a lie.
47 years of nation building is just one big fat lie.
Our sacrifices was never to build a better country for our children.
It was to build a better world for the pigs.

Remember Adelyn Koh when you vote in GE 2016.

Matilah_Singapura said...

No I have not crossed "the line" (whatever the fuck that is).

I wold have done so if I wrote about applying my amateur/ hobby gynecology to 11 year old girls...and then went on to describe their hairless pussies...but I didn't.

So consider yourself blessed.

Chua Chin Leng aka redbean said...

Matilah, sometimes it is okay to vomit shit from your mouth. There are times to show some decency. This is a little girl that needs help and a little kindness.

Matilah_Singapura said...

"Help" and "kindness" are ACTIONS taken in the real, physical world. ACTIONS make a difference.

Here: it's words. Non-acting words...write some words and the world doesn't change...not one bit. Words don't make any difference.

Redbean, are you so thick you cannot differentiate between WORDS and ACTIONS?

And please, don't go telling me what she needs. I don't even know if the story is true or hearsay...and if you've concluded that this child "needs help", you go fucking help her instead of being a kapoh-kia and telling others what she needs.

Got bitchy grandma complex?

Wow,
Matilah,
Redbean only highlighting the plight of
of a young girl lah.
You made the case into a drama.

Who knows after Redbean's write up,
readers like your good self may give
a helping hand in some ways such as
buying her compact disc.

Just one nite less at Geylang could get
You five CDs for a good deed.

Matilah_Singapura said...

@anon 552

>> You five CDs for a good deed.

If you think it is such a "good deed" put your money where your cock-sucker mouth is and ==> YOU <== take the ACTION and be a hero.

Me? Leave me alone to enjoy grown-up girl pussy.

I also find it strange that you're discouraging the patronage of Geylang? Hey man your mum works there...don't you want her to earn money?!? What kind of son are you?

Chua Chin Leng aka redbean said...

Hi guys and gals, Matilah is having his period. Just leave him alone.

This little post of mind helps to raise awareness in many people of Adelyn's plight. And asshole Matilah, if you don't know just keep your mouth between your tights and keep quiet. This is genuine and is all over the news.

Those who are able and willing would definitely lend a little help in their own ways.

Matilah_Singapura said...

Wah redbean. I can see you are biased. It's ok for some anons to bait me, but when I respond, I'm the bad guy.

And I don't really care if it is "all over the news" or "genuine" (as if that some how "bolsters" your position) -- I'll write a comment if I want to. Get fucked, redbean. And get a fucking sense of humour...you're a typical uptight Singaporean, so reactionary, so defensive....

FaarrrrK!

Matilah, my mother was having supper there and she saw your daughters loitering at the corner of Lorong 21.

Chua Chin Leng aka redbean said...

Matilah, I have as much good humour as you. So don't flatter yourself. You anyhow hoot, know also hoot, dunno also hoot and you called that humour. I can't see anything humourous when someone just hoot and then said he did not know what he is hooting. Ok this is humorous on this ground.

Matilah can claim everyone is wrong and he is right. But he did not know what he was talking about: )

In the papers today, it was reported that Adelyn has already raised the $80k needed for her operation.

Bless her and bless those that stepped forward with a helping hand. Not you Matilah.

Matilah_Singapura said...

Fuck you redbean.

Do you think I need your "blessing" or your "approval" or your whaterver-you-call-it? Do you think you sit on such a lofty perch that ordinary folks wait on your bestowal of divine providence? Dream on lah.

As I've already indicated -- ACTION speaks louder than words.

Despite my attempts at being humorous -- which instead was met with scorn, the gutsey little girl has raised the dough.

So balls to you all.

Chua Chin Leng aka redbean said...

How many of you consider what Matilah said as humour? I must have lost my sense of humour for failing to see them as humour.

Ok, Ok I am laughing now, someone please tickle me.

Matilah_Singapura said...

I don't give a shit whether you like my stuff or not.

You forget: I do this for purely selfish reasons.

Problem, asshole?

MS, you asshole. You know RB would not engage you in name calling so you can take advantage of him.

You must have been very badly brought up by your parents and cannot understand the meaning of decency.

Fuck you.
