Documentary Recorded in Marine Parade GRC - My Singapore when Papa Mama are poor

I was sadden by what I saw in Marine Parade GRC near Still Road & Eunos MRT Station in this season of Chinese New Year. Very young children had to follow their poor parents to help works that feed their family through Recycling from Waste. Their young lives definitely began the hard way, and I pulled out my camera and recorded them. Next to the Eunos MRT Station their PAp MP Dr. Ong Seh Hong had yet another luxury event of propaganda sponsored by his political cronies, these are very common and routine for Ong & most other PAp MPs. The Chinese New Year icon God Of Good Fortune was highly erected over-looking these poor children - giving them nothing ironically!

Ong is the MP for Kembangan seat which is part of Marine Parade GRC led by ex-PM Goh Chok Tong. His event had been there for weeks featuring a nightly begining from 16.Jan.2011 until New Year, Ritual of Fortune in which Gold Foil will be Sprinkled Upon their Distinguished Guests!

On that day I first saw an Indian girl about 6 years old with her father on a rickshaw collecting recycle material picked from the trash bins of private houses along Still Road. I took a brief shot of video. Then only minutes later I saw another Chinese girl only 2-3 years old sitting on a similar rickshaw pushed by her mother, collecting similar recycle materials from Eunos MRT Station's rubbish bins. I took a video clip of them, and sitting near them an old man seems to be begging or selling tissue paper near the MRT Station's rubbish bins.

This is Singapore for them! Where their minister draws the world highest salaries from GST paid by these poor families. The famiLEE LEEgime squander and plunder notoriously. The images floated up in my mind immediately of their high profile NDP celebrations.

So I knew I had to make these videos to expose this to the world.
