Grace Fu Meme

You know you made it big on the Internet when you started a Meme. I’m so proud to be a resident of Jurong GRC. One of my MP, Grace Fu, just started a Meme after posting her comments on the Ministerial pay cut at her Facebook page.

When I made the decision to join politics in 2006, pay was not a key factor. Loss of privacy, public scrutiny on myself and my family and loss of personal time were. The disruption to my career was also an important consideration. I had some ground to believe that my family would not suffer a drastic change in the standard of living even though I experienced a drop in my income. So it is with this recent pay cut. If the balance is tilted further in the future, it will make it harder for any one considering political office.

A Meme based on that quote is going viral now. A website has been set up to consolidate entries from the public. Some of them are pretty well done.

And you know that the Meme is successful when even mrbrown took part in it. What can I say? I’m so proud of my MP now. You do us Jurong GRC residents proud!

In fact, I think I’m going to support Grace Fu by taking part in the Meme too. My own MP got a Meme. Must support!

When I made the decision to put my face on the table in 2005, pain was not a key factor. Unchanged avatar, not being recognized by myself and my family and unable to use face time were. The roughness of the table surface was also an important consideration. I had some ground to believe that my family would not suffer a drastic change in the standard of living even though I experienced flattening at my nose area. So it is with this smaller table. If the balance is tilted further in the future, I will have to put my backside on the table too.

Someone should submit this Meme to Know Your Meme.

Messy Table

Wishbone created a meme on office/home desk. Long time no play meme liao. So let’s have some fun here.

My home desk is also considered my office desk. Since I can work from home if I want. And sometimes I prefer to work from home because I’m using a 20 inch iMac at home compared to a 14 inch laptop that runs stupid windows. (Luckily it’s a Thinkpad, else it would be worst)

You all should know that my home table is super duper messy one. I always post picture of my table before Spring Cleaning. Really want to see my table again? Don’t faint ok? Here goes….

Messy right? Not bad liao ok. It can get more messy than this. But it’s what I call an “organised” mess. I know where to get the things that I need. And I hate it when someone comes and pack up my table. Come on, it’s messy because it’s supposed to be like this.

OK, let tag people. Hee hee.

Here are the rules.

  • Describe your desk at the office or at home
  • Put a picture of it if you can
  • Explain why you sort it (or don’t)
  • Tag other people
  • I tag Cherie, Xinyun and Plaktoz.

    7 Bloggers I Admire Most

    I was tagged by Daphne to do this 7 bloggers I admire most entry. Who ask me big mouth go suggest to her to make it a tag so that we can “spread the love”.

    Anyway, this is a good tag. It is a counter to some so and so “famous blogger” and her “7 most disgusting blogger” post. (Notice that I purposely don’t name or link her in my post.)

    Anyway, here are the 7 bloggers that I admire most. (Not in any order)

    Cobalt Paladin
    Winner of ping.sg award 2007 most insightful blog. His blog is about his struggle on the road of an entrepreneur. I admire his courage to be an entrepreneur. And up to now, he is still anonymous. Nobody know who is he. Well, I respect his wish to be anonymous. In fact, I’m surprised that he managed to remain anonymous for so long.

    Paddy Tan
    Another very successful entrepreneur. His company has been doing pretty well and he has been hogging the major news agencies like CNN, CNBC, WSJ, Digital Life etc etc etc. YOZ! Give others a chance lah. Whoever say god is fair should look at Paddy. He got the looks, money and even iPhone! He even got a very pretty wife. Wah ciao. Why upstairs so unfair one?

    mrbrown
    Some call him the grandfather of Singapore blogging. He is a very talented writer. His blog entries are always funny and close to the heart. He managed to make fun of the political party and members without landing himself into trouble. He knew where to draw the line and he has been doing it well. Respect for this guy.

    Popagandhi
    A very sweet looking lady whom I’ve been following her blog for more than a year already. I admire her courage to backpack travel to places like India and Cambodia. Am glad that I finally got the chance to meet her face to face during village talk. Her speech that night was one of the best.

    Ice Angel
    I’ve been following her blog for quite some time. She is one of the 7 bloggers being attacked by that “famous blogger”. I admire her for her great blog template design. And after this incident, I admire the way she handle the whole issue. Can’t believe all these coming from a 17 year old gal. Respect.

    Scott Adams (Dilbert)
    Love his comic. The jokes in his comic are those “intelligent” jokes. You need to think about it for a while to really understand what is he talking about. And his blog is the same as his comic. Very funny.

    Lancerlord
    Some calls him “Lord of the links”. His blog is all about links. Links to other interesting stuff that he found on the web. Admire his abilities to find so many interesting things and catalog them in his blog. And hate him for showing me what is Desktop Tower Defence. I’m hooked on it now! Argh.

    OK, now tag 7 people.
    I tag the 7 people in my list. (Ya, as if people like mrbrown, Scott Adams, Ice Angel and Popagandhi got read my blog like that. Well, at least I know Paddy and Cobalt Paladin got read this blog. Lancerlord sometimes. :D So, YOU HAVE BEEN TAGGED. *Evil laugh*

    Disclaimer: If your name didn’t appear on this list, it might not be because I don’t admire you. Maybe I admire them more than you. Maybe you are in the 8th position in my list. Or maybe because I want to admire you secertly. (Highly possible if you are a gal and look pretty :D )

    Don’t feel sad if you don’t appear in this list ok? Don’t go commit suicide if you don’t find your name in this list. OK? It’s not end of the world yet.
