P65 - It's Where We Talk
Uploaded with plasq’s Skitch!

Dear Blog,

Yes, it is time to move on to other things, put things in per­spec­tive and focus on the big pic­ture. There have been so much neg­a­tive news lately that I imag­ine Sin­ga­pore­ans would be quite dis­heart­ened if they were to con­tinue talk­ing about them.

So kudos to my col­leagues for tak­ing the lead and post­ing their mus­ings on other things that make us Singaporean.

There are so many unique things about Sin­ga­pore that we tend to for­get and over­look, and we should be proud of our cul­ture and her­itage, and remem­ber what makes us attrac­tive to for­eign­ers. Do not for­get that other coun­tries are also devel­op­ing fast, and tak­ing in more than their fair share of tal­ented for­eign­ers. We must not lose out.

In order to do that, we must embrace the global econ­omy and var­i­ous global cul­tures, but within lim­its, of course. And for­eign­ers who want to embrace our own econ­omy and cul­ture must also under­stand and accept these limits.

It is time to repair our rep­u­ta­tion, and I hope every Sin­ga­porean will join me in doing so.

More later. I have to check on our secu­rity guard and make sure he is not sleep­ing. We back­benchers don’t have Gurkhas from the GC. Those guys never fall asleep on the job.

P65 Roxx!
