Hi there! I’m Samantha,

and this space encompasses my personal milestones made beautiful in His time. Combining my flair for easy-to-read writing and my love for photography, here you'll find me sharing the thing I'm most passionate about - travel, food, fashion and my conversations with God.

*P.S when God was blessing others with the gift of height, He left me out realizing that great things come in tiny packages, so instead I am gifted with endless energy and a big wide smile to get through difficult times.

Forever & always, a child of God. Through this cozy little virtual haven, I hope each post inspires at least someone out there with my life stories.

Are you planning your next event?

There’s always something for everyone at Temptations Cakes, let us celebrate your next special event (be it a birthday party, baby's first month, wedding, christmas, you name it!) and create lovely memories with you.

Pre-General Elections 2011 Thoughts

Ohgod, time flies.

I remember how back in Year 2006, I was in Sec 2 & Virina went crazy over elections & got me involved someway or another.

This is probably the few times (not many to begin with) I'm actually interested in Politics & even bothered to blog about it (at my own risk, yes I know!) Freedom of Speech in Singapore, right?
So what got me so interested? THE PEOPLE. To be specific, Nicole Seah & of course, there comes Tin Pei Ling after.

The hype between:
(Marine Parade)

Ms Kate Spade & Ms Half-Peranakan lady

has indeed spur my curiosity to look at them & see what they both have to offer to Singapore. Perhaps because both are young so they stand out as well as I can relate to them being young just like me. 20+years old don't seem too far away from my current age of 19, sadly...

So anyways, the question is: Who impressed me more?
My answer no doubt is: Nicole

Watch them BOTH in action:

The Impressive Nicole Seah Rally:

Video of the Famous Regret Question:

So now you understand why Nicole Seah is a better choice?

But of course, I wouldn't compare it this way. Because they are running in a GRC, Group.
If the elections were based on INDIVIDUAL, I'll place all my bets on Nicole Seah & make a fortune out of it. Say Real. But it's grouped, so it's really hard to say. Nicole VS Mr Goh. WHOA.

Nicole Seah changed my perspective of Opposition Parties. I proclaim myself to be a PAP-Supporter all along. I never meddle too much of such affairs, especially don't even take a look at the opposition party. But ever since news about her spread like wild fire, I started to take note of her and since she represents the Opposition, I took note of Opposition parties from then on...

I didn't know there were so many of them...

Nevertheless, not everyone is perfect. Definitely not me. But for them, I think both TPL and NS should go for speech lessons. TPL sounds like some online tutorial voice (too much of a storytelling memory work), & NS sounds too aggressive coupled with this unfriendly monotone hard 'shouting' voice. Maybe it's just me, but that's what I hear IF CONSIDERING I don't see their face from the videos watched.

The other exciting contest is of course the Battle Royale between:
(Aljunied GRC)

I have no idea how to reply to this.

With no biases, I would like to raise 3 issues:

1. I live at Siglap. Why is my region under Joo Chiat? I have no idea. Allocation plan CUI.
2. I never even see my MP before. Not before, Not EVEN during, Not after.
I open my letterbox & saw the flyer from Workers Party.
That's all.

3. I didn't hear both parties' rallies so I don't know what each side promise my region. But honestly, the last 5years, if PAP did promise to do something, I don't see anything being done cause like no change? I'm not even affected. So tell me, what did you guys do for us?

Tell you what!
I'm gonna run for General Elections in 5years time. Singapore, Brace Up & Embrace Me!
Don't bother digging up this post yo!
