I made a short trip to Singapore recently, during my stay in Malaysia. The Island city has always been an interesting place to visit, simply because I like reminiscing the years I was here as a student at St Patrick’s School in Katong, and checking out the places I used to visit during the weekends, Bras Basah Road, Newton Circus, Chinatown, Orchard Road etc. Most places have changed, and indeed, so have the youth today. As I type this, the results of the nation’s 2011 General Election are coming in, and it appears that despite a very vocal and vociferous opposition campaign, the ruling party PAP, have come through again. Many people, especially the young have dared to challenge the status quo by supporting the opposition parties, and they are surely disappointed that their voices were not heard. Perhaps, they will be, in 5 years time.
