From Wayang Party to TR Emeritus

Per our this editorial, our Techie Andrew can be said to be living on borrowed time, with 2 time-bombs ticking in his head (Brain Aneurysm (脑动脉瘤)*), the same medical condition that caused Mr Heng Swee Kiat’s stroke during a cabinet meeting in 2016.

Mr Heng suffered a ruptured aneurysm that caused bleeding into the brain, while Andrew’s aneurysm has not ruptured, but it is growing and may at any time rupture, hence the term “ticking time-bombs”. Andrew’s medical condition is complicated by Cerebral Infarction/Cerebral Ischemic Stroke (脑梗死), caused by Stage 3 Hypertension.

As the only and longest serving member of the TR Emeritus (TRE) team, he is also the only person that has complete inside knowledge of the path that this website took from being Wayang Party to the present TRE.

Andrew has therefore suggested that maybe he should also write a memoir of TRE (and also a bit about himself, like what a former ISD chief has done) before he “up the lorry” so that the ‘secrets’ that he has kept to himself for over a decade, would follow him to the grave.

Having been with TRE for over a decade, Andrew has seen editors, moderators, bloggers and contributors come and go. Some are no longer with us and have met their maker, while some have suffered serious injuries (due to climate change of course). Others have simply given up, etc etc etc.

When the idea of a Judicial Review (JR) was suggested by readers, we were all against it as the current TRE simply does not have the kind of appeal that TOC, Mr Leong or even HTD commands. However, Andrew managed to convinced us that since TRE claims to be the “voice of Singaporeans”, then we have to live up to that name and do whatever we can to help, even though the group of fellow Singaporeans affected by the policies were small and mostly ‘controlled’ by Iris Koh of HTD. He even volunteered to coordinate the action and against all odds, the JR was successfully completed despite Iris going all out to hinder our efforts.  He was already very sick at that time, with constant headaches, dizziness, numbness in his hands and legs. His condition has not improved since.

A decade is a very very very long time, for one person to be keeping all the ‘secrets’ to himself,  tolerate being shunned and ignored (even when he was in ICU) by his 2 younger brothers (both high-paying civil servants), etc etc etc.

By his own admission multiple times on TRE, Andrew is not a Saint and he had done things that he is not proud of in his younger years,  but can we all claim to be a Saint and never have faulted?

We believe Andrew is merely seeking an outlet to rant and release all his pent-up emotion now that he is probably at the final chapter of his life, with nothing more to lose. Or maybe he is just seeking closure?

From past experience, it is unlikely that we will be able to raise our target amount of S$40,000 for both TRE and his medical treatment, so the very least we can do is to allow Andrew to release his pent-up emotions, we believe TRE owes him that much.

What do you think?

 

* Brain aneurysms are deadly. About 10% of patients with a ruptured aneurysm die before receiving medical care. If untreated, another 50% will die within a month, with a 20% risk of rebleed by the end of the first two weeks. Aside from the bleeding issues, there is significant risk of artery spasm leading to stroke.

Survival rates are increased in patients who present early to the hospital. Early diagnosis, aneursym repair, and control of blood vessel spasms with appropriate medications are all associated with increased survival.

    TRE is a powerful weapon, a double-edged sword. It will propel the Opposition parties in the near-future with proper staffing, but only if it survives into the far-future. It will be the nation’s most conservative publication, our equivalent of FOX News.

    Sad to hear about Andrew’s condition. I have been jobless for a year now, but I will still contribute whatever I can, because he is one of us. I hope he gets the medical treatment he needs.

    How many readers do you have?
    If 1000 ,each gives $40/50,it will cover.
    If 500,each gives $80-$100,it will also cover.
    The younger n more well-to-do could perhaps give a bit more.
    Wishing Andrew gets better.

  • I would like to take this chance to thank all those who have contacted me to wish me well, you have my heartfelt appreciation.

    I understand that times are tough and many may not be able to contribute, but your kind thoughts are enough for me. At least I know that I am not alone.

    @John Soong

    Please do not describe TRE as a sword. A sword is a dangerous weapon and the powers that be do not like peasants playing with dangerous weapons, i.e. a threat. If TRE is perceived as a threat, then it may die a quicker death than me. lol

    @xoxo

    For your information, it is VERY HARD to remit funds into China, the banks will ask a lot of things from you. I am sure you must have heard that if a father is remitting funds to his daughter in China, the daughter would have to prove that the father is her father. The same applies to Western Union, they want to know what the funds are for, who from and then you have to show docs/remittance slip to prove that.

    The only other options left that are not troublesome are Wechat, Alipay, and through a money changer.

    For the 1st two options, how many in Sinkieland have a Wechat or Alipay linked to a China bank account (a must if you want to use its payment facility)?

    For remitting through a money changer, unless the amount is large, it is simply not worth the time and effort to visit a money changer to effect the necessary, would you agree? But then using money changer is the easiest because we do not need to know who it is from and/or provide any supporting docs. The funds will simply be credited into the bank account as and when it arrives.

    But then no harm trying, so will ask TRE to include those information. Besides, if TRE does close down, then I will have nowhere to play and spend my time, if I live that long, dio bo?

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    BTW, never knew that TRE made such an impact. lol

    I respectfully disagree. In its hay day, WP was THE blog that could command the most readers with its no holds barred policy. It was able to raise US$30k within a day or two.

    When it was changed to TRE, we adopted a softer and more responsible approach, it was then and only then that TRE went downhill because everyone likes a martyr and we are not ready to give them one. We are not stupid.

    TRE is not ready to go all guns blazing and cheonging because it would do no one any good. Following that path would mean TRE would have to be ‘bullied’ and forcibly shut down and then maybe even kenna sued and jailed. Even if we are able to raise $1 million then, what good does it do, the monies will never be ours and will only be paid to those who do not need them.

    While we may not be able to raise a few thousands now, at least we know that we and our family will be safe from being ‘bullied’ and free of incumbrances. TRE will never chut any pattern like recommending our readers to fake their vaccination status, etc. HTD so full of pattern, can raise $100k overnight, but see what is happening to them now, Iris is facing the possibility of going to prison for years, more if cheating charges are slapped on her again and again. The $100k will go towards enriching the lawyers, not her, right?

    So in the end, we ask ourselves, is it really worth it? Should HTD folds (like TOC), their cult members will likely move on and given time, these cult members will be looking for another cult leader and forget about Irs, who may be doing time in jail. The same would happen to TRE if we go down that path, agree?

    If TRE survives beyond August, we will still be able to continue to provide a voicing platform for those who need it, no fear of being ‘bullied’ or marked for ‘annihilation’, isn’t that better than having to report to the police or courts regularly?

    People cry “freedom of speech”, but many do not realise that in order to have that, you have to be responsible. It is only then that you can be taken seriously, no?

    Anyway, I am already prepared for the possibility that TRE may not be able to raise the funds that we need, but I am fine with that, at least we tried, no regrets. As for me, I can proudly say that at least I can die in the comfort of my home, with my beloved wife beside me rather than in a cell at Changi Prison Hospital, alone.

    Would you agree?

    Joke: I thought you are in love with CCP, now you know their rules and stupid condition.

    Let me give you some piece of advice to overcome CCP rules:

    1. Have a Hongkong bank account to do this.
    2. Remit from Singapore via WU from your account to your bank account in China.
    3. If everything cannot, go underground bank in China.

    Question: How did so many PRCs bought so many condos in Singapore with $75M etc………… Ah…. you ask yourself why…. and Singapore govt loves them so much that they did not not even blink their eyes or check where they got their money.

    Tech: These people are super rich, they can use big investment companies to remit the funds out for business. If induviduaL, then there will be caps of US$20,000 per year.

    Yes, everyone likes a martyr (canon fodder) and everyone will also just abandon you after you are no longer useful to them.

    This is how the game is played.
    Make use of you and discard you after you are no longer useful to them.

    A simple example, man con woman into sex and abandon her when she’s pregnant.

    Tech: Thank you for the info, I am already aware of that and that is why I am needing funds, it is not cheap and costs 6 figures for the ops. The specialist attending to me has recommended this, but I do not have the funds yet to make any appointment.

    The specialist said she can help in the referral and help me jump a few Qs, but I have yet to raise enough funds to afford that. My wife is earning only RMB4000 a month and we are also currently indebted to the tune of RMB200k due to my previous treatment, times are really very bad.

    People, respect the union’s dignity.

    In US, unions have low dignity.
    The salaries of Union Association Presidents in the US range from $41,942 to $58,563 , with a median salary of $46,884 . The middle 57% of Union Association Presidents makes between $46,910 and $50,376, with the top 86% making $58,563.

    Workers suffer from low pay in a peaceful environment. They don’t have to join in long violent protests for a pay increase. The 3-headed people are working hard to better their pays.

    In fact, you and your supporters should take a step further to print and distribute your reply to Temusik Patriot and bold the following:

    TRE Tech: People cry “freedom of speech”, but many do not realise that in order to have that, you have to be responsible. It is only then that you can be taken seriously, no?

    On top of this, you should also add this to that statement:
    We allow full background check including but not limited to relatives, addresses, behavior history (got visit geylang?), court judgments, bankruptcies, assets and financial.

    With such declaration, it will make TRE fully transparent and attracts more responsible people…No ?

    If death is certain, staring at his face, there is nothing to lose to try urine therapy. I have a thousand testimonials plus many e-books on my website.

    UT has miraculous healings. It generates the immune and regenerative systems.

    I have been on it for 25 years with excellet health. Not even a flu.

    Up to Andrew to give it a try…the last toss of the coin. It will not bring about his death any faster but should the miracle healing occurs, he will be around for a longer time.

    However, whatever decision Andrew makes, I pray for him. God above decides.

    Death is highly possible IF I am not treated, it is not untreatable, just very expensive.

    @Singaporean R Free Rider

    Yes, because TRE was not willing to be a “cannon fodder”, so no show to see, we have been abandoned, nothing surprising to us. The problem with most Sinkies is that they behind support you, they want you to cheong in front. However, the team @ TRE is not stupid. lol

    Like I said, die poor in the comfort of my home with my wife beside me better than in a cell at Changi Prison holding on to $1 million. dio bo?

    P/S: HTD should count themselves very lucky so far only 2 doctors that are allegedly in cahoots with them on the fake thingies have been taken to task, I KNOW that there are more, but I don’t play sabo, so I quiet, no say anything.

    Taking them as an example, is it really worth it, get maybe more than $100,000 in donations but the person cheonging face high possibility of going to jail, then the members move on and find another group and cult leader that are willing to cheong again? And the $100,000 go towards the lawyers?

    So far the police have yet to “touch” those members who “consulted” teh 2 doctors yet, if they really want to, I think a lot of members will kenna liao lor.

  • Many till now probably still don’t understand that TRE is only a platform, we are not here to try to meddle in politics. We would like to think of ourselves as a conduit for those affected to feedback and cry father cry mother to the powers that be, hoping that somehow someday, our feedback will be taken seriously. It is intended as a platform for serious readers who would like to see changes, for us to discuss serious issues and provide genuine feedback.

    TRE is about you, not us. It’s what you say, what you comment and what you write that makes TRE. I hope I have clarified this in the ways I possibly know how.

    TRE is a free platform, we did not form a Telegram channel that charges $50 per entry so that you can see a RMB 200 backup power supply in action or another $50 for us to teach you how to trade in Bitcoin, did we?
