Secret blog of a P65 MP: Part 5

But the toilet stank so we opened the window


Dear Blog,

Lam Pin Min beat me to it again. I was just about to post this up, and I log on and find that he’s beaten all of us to the blog again. Well done, colleague.

Speaking of colleagues, we are all colleagues in this team, whether or not we are in Cabinet. And a lot of talk these past two days has been about accountability.

Terror without trousers

Reuters’ headline for the topic of the week goes below the belt: “Singapore says militant escaped without trousers” (via I.Z. Reloaded).

They’ve said that the dude’s a master of disguise, and the first suspicious character that came to mind was “Singa The Courtesy Lion”. The resemblance is uncanny.

So the report is out, and our apartment’s security guard intimated that there were some areas of Singapore where apartment security was stricter, and where security guards like him were instructed to always take down particulars of visitors and their vehicles and not let anyone who didn’t oblige with their particulars into the private compound. At all.

“I was instructed to take down all particulars and not let anyone who didn’t oblige with their particulars into the private compound. At all”,
he said.

He also told me that visitors to our apartment block had complained about his conscientiousness, saying that he was harrassing them when all they wanted to do was to drive into the visitors’ lots and visit their friends.

He found it very difficult to do his job properly, he said. Some people just don’t care about security, he added.

If only all security guards, including the sleepy night guard, were like him. Not only is he a conscientious security guard, he’s also been our rental intelligence. One of the apartments in the development is going for $7,000 a month, he says.

“That’s really crazy”, I say. “And that’s why we have to move. Our income hasn’t increased by 120% in line with rentals”, I say.

We’re gonna miss him.
