GE Daily Roundup: Nomination Day Hijinks

Nomination Hour Day Kukus Hijinks

Unless you have been living under a rock surrounded by a colony of noise-dampening hamsters, you probably know that today was Nomination Day for the General Elections in 2015. You also already know who is contesting where, and if you don’t, there is a handy breakdown here. All 89 seats are being contested this GE, so you will be spoilt for choice in your evening leisure activities until 11 September. Getai show? PAP rally? WP rally? Throw a Choigers and Tutu party at your house and watch Desmond’s Lim’s GE2011 and GE2015 videos back to back? So many choices, so little time.

To keep you entertained until the political rallies begin, here are some of the more amusing moments from Nomination Day 2015.

I have to hand it to this guy: he has the word “carefree” down to an art. Short of 10 signatures for his form? No problem. How to get more signatures? Wait outside the center and hope for the best, lor.



Nonpartisan Politics: M Ravi Takes It To A Whole Other Level

In case you haven’t watched this yet, I won’t spoil it for you. Skip to 0:50 if you’re impatient.


I know collaborative multi-party politics is a good idea, but … I don’t think this is how you’re supposed to do it.


Kevryn Lim Reminds Nation That Change Is, You Know, A Thing

When I watched this video, I remembered something really important. Something I haven’t thought about in a long while.

Actually, two really important things.

One: I have far too much change in coins and I should buy more teh peng tomorrow. No wonder my wallet weighs as much as a baby elephant.

Two: PSA, everyone. Changing … your clothes every day is a good idea. It helps you to avoid situations where your colleagues plot to drown you in shower gel.

Change is great, y’all! Have you changed? Have you? Have you? Huh?

(Skip to 2:45 for maximum change-inducing effect.)
