Nomination Day Videos

The objection raised by Vincent Wijeysingha of the SDP.


I was so excited to see the charismatic SDP team with Dr Vincent Wijeysingha leading the way. They always inspire confidence and hope.


I must say my Tamil is pretty bad, but Dr Vivian Balakrishnan’s is embarrassingly bad. I can’t make out what he said besides the greeting and thank you. Well, at least he made an effort. I shouldn’t be so mean. I actually felt a little bad that he looked so nervous.  The Video

Nicole leads the announcement from the NSP Team. Here’s the video. Who cares about age. This girl is a natural born leader.

Sylvia speaks for the Workers Party and I love that she mentioned that we Singaporeans are the secret weapon. I must say Chen Show Mao looks very dignified and he is pretty tall. Here’s the video.

And the walkover.

    Qn. how do you ascertain that VB’s Tamil is bad, when you concede that your fluency isn’t quite up to par? 😉

      I think I can say mine is a bit better 😉 I think I can be understood even though I may have a strange slight accent. But I have to give him props for making the effort and he looked very nervous before taking the mic.

    i’m sure your Tamil is better than his.

    Suppose I have limited proficiency in Tamil , and someone speaks fluent and relatively more varied Tamil?, that I do not understand.

    How can I know that he is actually speaking Tamil, and not some other language, and that he is more proficient in Tamil than me? (Just because I do not understand him, makes him less proficient) 😉

    As always, enjoy your lil’ snippets of Sg. Juz wanted to lighten the mood, at your expense. 😉
