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.
