Dear Singaporeans, we are at the Day 3 mark of the fund raising. We have managed to raised nearly $50,000 for the legal fees. The support from Singaporeans have been very very encouraging. You can read more about what the court case is about and the fund raising appeal here.
I thank Singaporeans for showing your support. This is a responsibility that means a lot to Singaporeans and I will take on this responsibility wisely. From the notes of support coming in, many Singaporeans hope that with this, we can fight on behalf of Singaporeans. We will.
As I had shared on my Facebook, I will update on the funds raised to be transparent and accountable. Please see below for further information on the funds raised so far, as of 5.00pm today.
Funds Raised So Far
We have raised $49,836.75 so far. We would still need to raise another $20,163.25. The target is $70,000.
Please see below the transaction histories of the bank accounts.
Below is the transaction history for the POSB Savings Bank Account 130-23068-7 (Ngerng Yi Ling). This is my personal bank account.
$46,175.03 has been raised from here.
Below is the transaction history for the OCBC Savings Bank Account 657-4-111750 (Ngerng Mui Choo). My father helped set up this bank account yesterday solely for this fund raising.
$2,014.78 has been raised from here.
Below is the transaction history for PayPal. Please note that the PayPal is linked to my personal POSB bank account. I will include these amounts in the funds raised when they enter my personal POSB bank account, for ease of accounting.
$2,396.58 has been raised from here.
Finally, today I had received two amounts of $201.6 and $100 from two Singaporeans who had came personally to pass me the money (before 5.00pm today). Thank you very much and I am glad I was able to chat with one of them. The other person had passed an envelope to my father – whoever you are, thank you for making the trip down.
$1,651.60 has been raised via cash.

This is a very important point in the journey of Singaporeans. We have reached a point where we demand more answers and will not allow ourselves to be whitewashed.
On 7 June, we will be organising an event to demand to the Singapore government to #ReturnOurCPF. Read our demands below.
We have also set up a petition that you can sign here.
We look forward to seeing you on 7 June. The Facebook event page can be found here.
