Remembering the childhood years

Askmelah’s Note:

The most controversial segment in this article appears to be when her parents were advising Dr Lee to take the President’s scholarship. The late Mrs Lee said: “Take the prestige. Don’t take the money,so you won’t be bonded.” while Mr Lee said: “No, take the money. It makes no difference whether you are bonded or not.” Deep inside me I would have thought that both of them would advise, “take the prestige, but don’t take the money, we can afford it, the money will be moe beneficial for the poor.”

"Till today, I am still puzzled by why the PAP cannot fight a fair election without gerrymandering, abusing the GRC system, basically, making sure they enter into a boxing ring with an opponent who is expected to fight them with hands tied behind the back. There is a reason why bullies are not popular in schools. Why not be the school prefect?" - Alvinology

"The question to ask is what lies at the root of the discontent or the disengagement between the G and the people. I am going to stick my neck out and say that it is ministerial salaries.
