By now you must have read mannnnnnnnnnnnnny Facebook posts and followed the endless stream of rally news about #GE2015. But but but, there are some gems out of the avalanche of posts that you really shouldn’t miss. Here, our pick of the best of best Facebook posts this election season.
1) ‘I still can’t vote this election, because I’m 19. I wish I could, but I can’t.’ Facebook link
2) Hand on Our Heart ‘This country needs to decide whether we still have that iron in us to forge on, or just a bunch of character-less-pussycats-me too. Make a stand!’ Facebook link
3) Another perspective from another Gen Y
4) NOBODY OWES US A LIVING. I repeat. NOBODY OWES US A LIVING.
5) A parent whose child has a rare disease shares his experience.
‘I did not want to share my story, but I don’t see it fair to only hear bad stories about people who say they don’t get help from the govt, while I stay quiet about the help I got. Probably there are more who like me got help. Probably many of them do not use social media.’
6) The Queen of Blog has spoken.
Know what? I’d much rather vote her into Parliament than, say, at least half of the candidates contesting this round. Which half? Hehe, that’s for me to know and you to never find out!
7) This is possibly the loooooooooongest one so far.
And I mean really really long. Not sure if we put this guy next to MINISTER TAN CHUAN JIN who is supposedly mighty ‘cheong-hei’, who would win *shrugs*
8) I love this woman! Yes, I’ve saved the best for last! I love her train of thoughts, her rant and yes, even the language seems to fit the post. Go read it!
‘The government has GIVEN me NOTHING all through my life (excep maybe bursary?) but has PROVIDED me with the opportunities I NEED to work hard and change my own life. What some of us may consider a birth right as a Singaporean is a luxury to many others, even for those just across the border. A vote once cast, is cast in stone.’
Hi, I'm Rene! Mostly in Singapore and loving it, I also have an unwhettable appetite for travel. I prefer my coffee black, my champagne dry, my days short and my nights long. I do a fabulous job of manifesting my awkward ISFP personality.
And yes, I'm still searching for my unicorn, and chasing that rainbow.
