Here appear occasional jottings of my random musings. Profound or jejune, they reveal the contours of my mental universe, with world history, intellectual history, civilizations, philosophy, religion, society, knowledge, and books as some major themes. Since May 2011, this blog has been exclusively focused on Singapore. All my other reflections are now posted in "Notes from Noosphere" (see link under "Miscellany" on the right margin).

Low Thia Kiang meets the people for five hours at the void deck (video)
Even though meeting the people at the void deck, rather than in an air-conditioned office, is uncomfortable for all concerned, it is a PR triumph for Mr Low Thia Kiang and the Workers' Party.
I salute Mr Low for his spirit of dedication and service, and his easy accessibility to the residents.
Contrast him with the former MP (PAP) for the same GRC, Cynthia Phua (here) who insisted on pressing charges against a youth of low IQ who was furious after meeting her (presumably due to her lack of sympathy), and slammed a chair against her office door. The youth subsequently apologized, but she refused to withdraw charges.
