He’s got a blog too, and has also disabled comments for the time being.

From Pam Oei’s FB page:

FUNDS NEEDED URGENTLY FOR INDEPENDENT TANJONG PAGAR GRC
As you have read in today’s ST, the independent opposition team that was to run for Tanjong Pagar GRC had to pull out for lack of funds. If you’d like to donate, please give what you can by transferring funds to POSB SAVINGS ACCT 104280293 NOW

Apparently you can do so by tonight, and you can call 81721071 to verify.

Please note that only Singaporeans can donate.
