I am just your average Singapore citizen – one who has not grown up here, but a proud patriot nevertheless. I am not here to pass shallow judgments on you based on your voting preferences. Your vote is your choice and your right to govern our country. I just want to bring to your attention…

February 8, 2011 / Daily Life / 4 Comments

Much has changed since my last What’s In My Bag post, so I thought I should do an update. Before I start, excuse the quality of the writeup and photos in this post. I’ve been sick as hell the last week (I still am!), so I don’t really have the energy to meticulously check over…
