China Town CNY market Doing Poorly in 2011 compared to the past

Youtube.Com URL

I went to China Town CNY market yearly, and more so this year, I went several times for different reasons. My friend moved his business there this year, and my old father today had to go to SGH A&E (he is very disappointed again with Cow Boon Wan's SGH, that they made him wait till after CNY to see urologist, and that cause him to have to put up with wearing a bag of urine throughout entire CNY).

I was raining when I was in SGH A & E, and rain reduced as my dad got discharged. My family fetched my dad back home, and I walked to Perl's Center to get some food. By then rain complete stopped. And I went into China Town's CNY market to film it.

The stalls which are paying high rents are obviously not doing as good as their past years, I think this year is the worst. My estimation is they are doing only a quarter of turn over comparing against the past good years.

It was impossible to hope to get a parking space during pre-CNY weekend in the multi-level car park above China Town hawker center / market. There is available parking this afternoon it seems.

There is no traffic jams like the past and the main roads are quite empty this afternoon.

There is a shopping crowed but very little compared with even last year. There are people spending their monies however their purchasing powers are much reduced this year, even when famiLEE LEEgime is claiming a mere 15% economic growth. We can compare this type of shopping scene against other countries CNY market where their economic figures are half or a third of what PAp had claimed. The figures and the facts don't match!

There is a prove of disparity in spending power however, when I saw a line of about 50 people lined up for famous Lim Chee Guan BBQ pork slices. 林志源肉干, I checked their price tags and their highest priced pork is toady @S$54/kg other BBQ meat slices range from S$52 to S$47 including beef. A man who I spoke to had just paid for 2kg told me that he spent over 4 hours in that Queue. So it is a minority who can afford this - this Q of about 50 people who waited here for hours, they have hundreds to spend on few kilograms of BBQ meat. The others just pass by, and looked on, and spent much fewer CNY dollars on lower cost items - like myself :-)

Recorded at 3 places in Singapore on Saturday about 1400hr 29.Jan.2011 by Uncle Yap. This is when Lee Kuan Yew Govt claimed nearly 15% Economic Growth while the consumers' buying power seems obviously weakened compared to the past years. This was the busiest bustling New Year Shopping Area in Singapore which major population is Chinese. There is only 2 more days to New Year and this is the last weekend before it.

Reform Party's Rally at Speakers Corner, new citizen candidate slammed imigrant policy!

This evening Saturday 15.Jan.2011 at Speakers Cornered Hong Lim Park, under heavy rain, hundreds of Singaporeans including some new citizens and new voters listen to the candidates of Reform Party, led by Keneth Jeyaretnam. The party's candidate includes New Citizen from China Mr. Zhuo, who slammed against the famiLEE LEEgime's migrant policy, pointing out that it is wrong and there are too many immigrants, and this policy had been implemented without due considerations. He wants this policy reversed. He asked for voters to vote his party into parliament.

The rain fluttered between light and heavy, and many were holding umbrellas supporting the rally. Majority of the crowds were using the Kreta Ayer CC's stage shelter to listen to the rally.

Reporters and activists used rain coats to photograph and record the speeches. I was without any umbrella wearing a cap, my camera got very wet as a result and we were all standing in puddles of the filed to record video and images of this rally. thread URL

PRC punished corrupt officials who Invented smarter corruption stunts than famiLEE LEEgime salaries

Related Chinese blog post URL

Related XinHuaNet.Com news URL

I found today on, the PRC official news agency, that the PRC govt had punished corrupted officials who tried to accept bribes through complicated attempts to exploit legal loopholes to escape punishments. These methods are CREATIVE and DEEMED VERY LEGAL. But the corrupts did not manage to escape punishments - which in PRC can easily and usually mean a bullet from the firing squad.

The reported loopholes in the above report and other reports that I have read this week, are from recent high profile cases. A medical drug bureau chief had been lucratively selling professional medical books at very high price, this is a legal form of income under Chinese and even Singaporean laws. Medical suppliers and drug makers had to please this corrupted bureau chief by purchasing many copies of these expensive professional books - which are totally relevant to their line of profession. But this smart cover still got blown and the corrupt is now on trial in PRC court.

There are other cases of corrupted PRC officials, found to be legally making lucrative profits out of purchasing and selling high priced art collections. The law in PRC now revised that any such gains or profits by selling high then what the officer had paid for any these arts or properties is recognized legally as a form of corruption.

To connect this revision of law to famiLEE LEEgime's notorious case of HPL corruption scandal Lee Kuan Yew's son Lee Hsien Loong when serving as Deputy Prime Minister had purchased below market prices 2 units of luxury mansions (Nassim Jade if I recall correctly) from a developer related to his own nepotism ring. For attempting to expose this scandal famiLEE sued Mr. Tang Liang Hong a Workers Party Parliamentary Candidate who contested Cheng Shan GRC with late Mr. JB Jeyaretnam. This form of corruption is now officially recognized as a punishable crime of corruption as declared in Chinese court of law.

To abuse the court as a tool for corruption, the PRC corrupts had made complicated arrangement so that they can have legitimate grounds to sue their interested parties in court for huge sum civil suits from which these corrupts will get judgments in their own lucrative favor. And collecting these court ordered payments are fully legitimate while however it is indeed just covered up channel arranged to collect huge sum of bribes. Isn't that smart? But then they did not managed to escape punishment eventually when the Chinese people found out!

To relate this channel I would like readers to consider the notorious facts that Lee Kuan Yew famiLEE had constantly been suing publishers and politicians for huge sum of defamation DAMAGES. Did the Chinese corrupts took reference from famiLEE LEEgime's stunts to abuse civil suits? :-) You decide!

I have insisted that Lee Kuan Yew famiLEE LEEgime's world-unique invention which that shameless old dog thief is personally promoting around the whole world, is what I called a OBSCENE AMOUNT OF SALARY GRAFT. Thread URL

Fearful famiLEE LEEgime dead worried about LEAKAGE URL

Don't try a 'WikiLeaks' here: Shanmugam

Anyone caught leaking any official government documents in Singapore will be 'dealt with firmly,' warned Law and Home Affairs Minister K Shanmugam. -- PHOTO: AFP

HOME Affairs and Law Minister K Shanmugam has warned that anyone caught leaking any official government documents in Singapore, will be 'dealt with firmly.'

Singapore, among many other countries, was affected by the whistle-blowing website WikiLeaks when it released thousands of US cable transcripts.

In Parliament today, MP for Hong Kah GRC Zaqy Mohamad asked if Singapore plans to implement new measures to prevent classified information from falling into the wrong hands.

Mr Shanmugam replied that under the Official Secrets Act, Singapore has clear policies and measures to prevent security breaches which covers even the layman.

'We believe that everyone involved in a leak of information, whether in Government or outside, should be dealt with firmly. We do not intend to encourage cat and mouse games,' Mr Shanmugam said.

'Public interest in free flow of information cannot justify the abuse of confidential Government information,' he added.

But what else can they do beside lame childish intimidation?

They have so much to hide. They are so vulnerable to such exposure to light. They have too much to lose. But there is so little they can really do to effectively protect themselves.

While the USA Govt still can not get their hands on Wikileak founder, and while famiLEE LEEgime failed to find Mas Selamat from his brothers home in Tempines. What intimidation can work out in famiLEE LEEgime's favor. Mas Selamat already proved that it is so easy to get out of Singapore. Mr. Tang Liang Hong and many other ICA scandals proved exactly the same.

All the leak takes is the person have enough damaging evidence against the famiLEE LEEgime, grab it and get out of red dot, and let it out on the internet. So simple. The price to pay is small and the reward immediately as well as in the future will be so great. ;)

Any person who leaked corrupted famiLEE LEEgime's data that lead to their down fall will be national hero and would be rewarded handsomely, not less than the famiLEE LEEgime's ministers in the future. ;) The reward level will be in accordance with the value of data leaked and timeliness of the leak, as long as the leak exposed corrupted and incompetent secrets hidden by famiLEE LEEgime, and such political damages lead to their downfall, merits and rewards should be recognized by the future government of Singapore.

The era of Internet Power is here, and like it of not famiLEE LEEgime have to embrace it.
