Count On Me Singapore No Longer Has Meaning…

Back in 1986/87, I remembered I attended the first night NDP at the Stadium. Basically it was the first time, NDP was held at night, not many people in the school wanted to go, so a number of students were arrowed by teachers to attend. We were also asked to take part in the filming of the song to be sung by Clement Lee. Also very reluctant and we had a few students by the flag pole, the angle  captured as if there were many.

That first night NDP made us change the perception of NDP, it was so impressive with the neon  lights, songs and atmosphere. Everyone of us were so impressed and delighted and when it came to singing “Count on me Singapore”, we were all emotional. This was a great country and we felt so touched and proud of it. After that, night NDP became a hit, everyone wanted to have a piece instead of fearing to be arrowed to attend. After that night NDP, many new songs were composed for NDP but none really had the same impact. Count on me Singapore and We are Singapore are the most endeavored songs.

From the last two decades, PAP has been screwing locals, putting their priority on importing foreigners and converting them into PRs and new citizens. Even RCs are reserving NDP tickets for PRs, new citizens and foreigners. Many locals been balloting tickets for years, not given tickets at all. The last 10 years, I stopped watching NDP, I found that I had lost the same emotional feeling about Singapore. The law minister said Singapore belongs to everyone, the additional sentence is “except Singaporeans”.

The PAP expects and demands locals to be loyal but keeps screwing locals, this is the part locals feel angry about. It is only near election, suddenly they look like cats, other times they are greed serpents and tigers bullying locals into submission.

This National Day, they decided to bring back We are Singapore to try ignite the lost emotion. I tell you my honest truth, when they played the song on TV, the feeling is already gone, I feel repulsive and puking. How can a country who keeps screwing the locals  expect locals to feel good? Playing the same old nationalistic songs would help bring back the lost emotion?

You watched the three little pig and big bad wolf story? We locals cannot be the three little pigs. You play nationalistic songs and you expect us not to remember how you kept screwing us through the decades until now. Election is near, you are giving out money and  behaving like Santa Claus and after election you transform back to big bad wolf!

I have not watched any NDP since more than 10 years ago. When I hear these nationalistic songs, I feel repulsive on the thoughts of  your hypocrisy and your policies hurting locals. For god sake, cut the hypocrisy and wayang, these songs don’t work magic charm on us anymore. The more we hear it, the more we wanna puke when we think of the things you are undoing to us.

    PAP wants your loyalty and commitment and yet gives out NDP tickets to foreigners and new citizens; what more can you say?

    You look into NDP, mostly now attended by foreigners like festival.

    The last thing, these foreigners have no attachment to Singapore, nor can they say our pledge or sing the song…

    PAP screws us hard, give our jobs and priority to foreigners and still want to wayang during NDP for f?

    They set the vision of heavenly blessings, you pay your tithes with gratitude and thankfulness.

    If it works in church,it works in Sin. The church of Sin embrace all people, including foreigners who share the same heavenly blessings and vision.

    Pay your tithes religiously and do not neglect to gather in the House of worship and listen to your chief priest.

    Very simple but it works, with women especially. Hmmm…

    The gahmen excels in performing eating because they believe that most Singaporeans are simplistic,gullible,stupid and selfish.Their mindset is that as long as the people have 3 meals and roof over their head,the gahmen can do whatever they want.Sinkies are cowards and brainwashed to believe that gahmen is indispensable.The 70% sinkies must wake up from their slumber and be courageous to VTO.Dont count on me our jaga, count on the new citizens please.

    Original Count On me SG has no meaning. This one has more meaning. I’ll dedicate it to the MIW (especially ESM Goh) on this Nat’l Day

    Count money Ministers, count money and ask for more and more
    P A P, will do their part, screw us all, deep and hard
    They’re going to tell us all money is not enough
    They will take more, will ask for more

    Chorus:
    Count money Ministers, Count money Ministers
    Count money and ask for more and more, count money P A P

    ( Repeat Chorus )

    Together ask for more ask for more ( X 2 )

    (Original)

    Count on me Singapore, count on me to give my best and more
    You and me, we’ll do our part, stand together, heart to heart
    We’re going to show the world what Singapore can be
    We can achieve, we can achieve

    Chorus:
    Count on me Singapore, Count on me Singapore
    Count on me to give my best and more, count on me Singapore

    ( Repeat Chorus )

    Together Singapore Singapore ( X 2 )

  • Count On Me Lau Goh:

    PM has warned about the economic dangers from the Trade Tariff war and other external dangers that Singapore is facing in his National Day Speech and here we have Lau Goh demanding higher pay package for the million dollar Ministers.

    It shows that Lau Goh, just kie most of our Ministers, cannot anticipate incoming problems yet dare to ask for more pay. Simply Very Greedy.

    Yes Lau Goh you can count on me to hope for your Cancer to spread faster.

  • pap clown ruined Singapore:

    in a short 15 years, since 2004, Singapore has been going downhill.

    a lot of whitewashing on the outside. but rotting stinking and sinking on the inside.

    too many lies now. low unemployment when it is all fake news. tight labour market when all the truth is there is a shortage of workers for S$1,000 cleaner security guard jobs and not the median wage S$3,500 per month jobs.

    Sorry, can’t resist this last one for the road.
    I suppose that if you were to watch a performance by David Copperfield from backstage, you’d see the wires and the mirrors. But out in front, the great gawking slack jawed masses are enthralled, and believe the magic. If you’re watching these PAP elites from a privileged position of knowing what’s going on, which is a very uncomfortable position to be in. It’s no fun to watch simple folk being duped by charlatans and s*ake oil salesmen. But the message is being sold to the voters, and many voters ain’t too bright. They’re just thrilled to see the PAP magically pull a chicken out of every pot. If they were performing for an audience of economists, they’d have to change their act. The old reliable ruses wouldn’t work. Perhaps they could transform themselves, amid smoke and strange music, into white/red monkeys. Now that would be a trick worth seeing. Whether it’s a new fangled voodoo or the old trickle-down voodoo, the result is the same – the taxpayers always get scrooged.

  • N Day = Normal Day:

    As the tv broadcast NDP, people are still at shopping malls and coffeeshops buying dinner, while others are still working, so who cares about watching NDP live anymore? That is the hard truth.
