I am a Singaporean who cares about social issues in Singapore. I hope to share my views and analysis of the social situation in Singapore to generate healthy and constructive discussion.
My wish is that my fellow Singaporeans will become happier and be able to live their lives with more passion, in a free, just and equal environment – not just one enshrined in our governing principles, but one that is real.
I would like to add that, I am very appreciative of my government’s efforts in bringing Singapore to where it is now, but like what DPM Tharman had said, “As the Republic builds its niche in the sciences, there is now some “catch up to do” in the area of social science and humanities research.”
I hope to be able to add to the constructive discussion that is gaining momentum among Singaporeans, to help our government mould Singapore to one that Singaporeans will be proud of, and to live in dignity with.
In case you are wondering, I do not think of myself as a leftist or rightist. I’m not anti-PAP or pro-opposition. I believe in equality and respect, and respect towards the human condition. I will support any governance, policies or programmes that can help us achieve equality and respect for one another, without harming others.

I also have another blog which talks about my journey as a gay man living in Singapore and how I have learnt to become a stronger person, with more awareness, mindfulness and empathy in my life. You can read about my journey at: http://myrighttolove.com/
