Singaporeans go to the polls today, Sep 11, 2015. It’s very exciting.
There’s been plenty of rhetoric from both sides contesting the 89 seats at stake. The ruling party will try hard to hold onto its 79 seats. There are 8 opposition parties. Yes, Singapore is funny like that. It doesn’t make the fight any less vigorous though.
Will the ruling party win big? Will the opposition make more inroads? The outcome is still hazy. And coincidentally, so is the weather.
Mom is very clear though.
Do you know it’s election day today, Mom?
But you cannot vote. Do you know why?
Mom smiles and says, “Because I am Malaysian.”
I’m surprised she knows. I should ask her who she thinks will win.
