    Me Hide ? PAP supporter don’t hide.

    Opposition has no big achievement to show so they steal PAP ideas here and quickly claim it as their credit.

    On the contrary, PAP demonstrate good leadership showing accountability like what this mother did.

    We PAP believe in gentle coaching like the above mother to bring about change.

    Only when gentle coaching does not work, then we PAP Will have to use harsh method like what Terry Guo did.

  • Stop Racial Change:

    @ Team @ TR Emeritus

    YES ✅ ” Happy and Prosperous Chinese New Year ”

    NO ❌ ” happy and prosperous🈷lunar new year ”

    A greeting or statement that is intended to be politically correct may seem seductive but is in fact damaging to its audiance and in this case, the Chinese people and its culture.

    The Workers’ Party in wanting to stand out from the rest and be politically correct is such an ignorant idiot when they chose to use lunar new year instead of Chinese New Year in their greeting to the Han Chinese here who make up 75 % of the population. This is an insult to the chinese here.

    Why ?

    The Chinese invented their own calendar and the 12 animal zodiac.

    China is the sphere of influence to her immediate southern neighbours.

    The japanese, koreans (North & South), vietnamese are of the same race belonging to the chinese stock. They borrowed China Han chinese customs and adapted into their cultures.

    China invented and produce silk.

    The discovery of the silk route began in China and ended in europe.

    The japanese and koreans buy silk and also learnt how to make them from the chinese for their kimonos and hanboks.

    They borrowed alphabet from the chinese characters and incorporated it into their writings.

    They followed the chinese in using chopsticks, lanterns, kung fu martial arts, chinese medicine and occupuncture, noodles making and eating tofu.

    New Year celebration is vehemently characterised all over in Han chinese customs and culture. From the colour RED ( imperial palace colour in the forbidden city), lion and dragon dances, angpow and mandarin exchanges, good luck ambigrams to writing chinese calligraphy on door posts, fireworks and fire crackers, reunion dinners and “chap gor mei”.

    Not surprisingly then the japanese, koreans, vietnamese and others around the region also adopted the chinese zodiac and calendar as their own to track, calculate and record time.

    The lunar peoples ( ethnic tribes in IndoChina, Himalayan, mongolian, tibetan, japanese, korean, vietnamese, thai and others of the chinese stock ) adopted Han chinese customs, religion and traditions as they have no history and customs of their own.

    So as in all things originating in China, its “new year” should be rightly called “Chinese New Year”.

    It is widespread and known only as CHINESE NEW YEAR in Europe, Canada and America today.

    Why kay khiang lunatic and change it to lunar new year ? ❓

    5,000 years of chinese history and civilization should not be hijacked by others as their own calling it with another name “lunar” new year.

    We celebrate and stoutly call it CHINESE NEW YEAR is to remind us of its origin and to preserve and pass on its traditions to the future generations unaldulterated.

    However many other people love things chinese and hijacked them as their own.

    In India today, Tamil Nadu and other states borrowed some Chinese cultures like hanging of colourful lanterns, setting of fire crackers and fireworks on diwali and other festivities.

    The muslims and hindus in SEA not wanting to be seen left behind the richness of chinese tradition and culture have also followed the chinese in the tradition of giving Ang Pows, have themselves adopted the Green Pows and the Purple Pows respectively ( NTUC supermarts initiated it to their shoppers)

    If they can’t hijack, they will prey.
    Like in sinkieland, our chinese girls are pretty sought after and preyed by Injuns.

    China’s Han chinese people and its culture is truly majestic pure and original.

    Chinese is the DRAGON.

    They don’t copycat but give much to the world.

    Chinese New Year is Chinese New Year. Period.

    Don’t call it by other names such as lunar new year, moonie new year or looney new year.

    The chow cheenahs (smelly chinese) are from Taiwan, M’sia, $gp, Hkg, Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand etc..that have sadly been adulterated.

    Are you Chinese panda* or Sinkie Chow Cheenah (smelly chinese sinkaboh-lan) ?❓

    *Note: All pandas – native only to China (even in western country zoos) are given chinese names. They will not have Lunatic or Ang More names.

    Be proud, stand up and preserve the chinese culture.

    Your children as next generation chinese should not be born kopi susu, teh susu or eggnog.

    Don’t let some smart aleces in sinkiland hijack to please the new citizen chow cheenahs from other nationals in order to win their votes.

    Say No to lunar new year.

    Say Yes to CHINESE NEW YEAR !

    Yes, this is correct. Even the Chinese Chauvinist motherland (SCMP) also said the same thing…

    The 12-animal zodiac calendar used in China today came from ancient Babylon via India thousands of years ago

  • Magandang Omaga:

    There is a deep basin surrounded by high mountain ranges located at a remote part of a big continent, due to its geographical location, the sky above the basin is always cloudy and foggy. The full and sunny sun is a very rare sight and once this happens, the dogs rear by the people living there will be startled, thinking that this strange and formidable sun must be coming to eat them all up. Spooky, the dogs will start barking furiously with their tails between their two hind legs.

    If you observe carefully, something similar is taking place in this forum——— a mad puppy is barking away probably for similar reason.

    Now, we go back to some history of tea culture.

    Tea is originated from China. In Fujian region, tea is generally being called as “ they” . If the westerners first got their tea from this region, they would probably call it as “tea”. Another route through which tea is introduced to the westerners is via the Silk Road. This route connects to the parts of China where people call it as “ Cha”. So if the westerners first got their tea through this route will probably call it as “ Chay” or “Cha”.

    Chinese tea merchants living along the Silk Road would always invite their customers for tea brewed by them, to convince them that it is of high quality. In the course of testing it, these customers would always rest their hands holding the tea cup on their knees, there comes the special phrase “ chay knees “ and spread to the world over hundreds of years.

    This mad puppy could have DNA inherited from the ancient tea customer who first got their tea through Silk Road. Some unpleasant individual experience could have associated with this phrase, and thus whenever something sounds “ chay knee “ or anything associated with it will get to the nerves of this puppy and it will start to bark furiously non stop!

    A simple way to overcome the irritating situation is to say this a few times:

    “ Panasonic Utility Industry “

    It truly works!

    if China is so great why millions and millions of Chinese are illegally migrating to US?

    Opposition are dangerous. They likely to have secret link with the Chinese Security Bureau passing secrets to the Chinese like PSP Phillip Chan.

  • Historian:

    Based on artifacts and historical documents, the Chinese 12 zodiac signs took shape during Qin Dynasty, perfected during Han Dynasty.

    Very primitive stage of cultural exchange between China and the Asian Subcontinent began only during Tang Dynasty, several hundred years after Han Dynasty was overthrown by peasant rebellion.

    The India zodiac is recorded in its ancient scripture way before China 战国时代. At least 1000 BCE. Thats about Zhou dynasty time before 春秋 770 BCE.

    鼠、牛、狮、兔、摩睺罗迦、那伽、马、羊、猴、 金翅鸟、狗、猪。( India )

    鼠、牛、虎、兔、 龍 , 蛇、馬、羊、猴,
    雞 , 狗, 豬。( China )

    Unlikely both country come up with their own zodiac so identical. Whether in species or ranking.

    In India theres lion but China dont have so replaced with tiger.
    摩睺罗迦、那伽 replace by dragon or loong and snake. 金翅鸟 replaced by chicken or rooster.

    Most likely from India spread to the 游牧民族 and eventually spread to China’s 游牧民族 ( 匈奴 or 戎狄 or others ) and then mainland China.

    The India zodiac’s animals are the 神兽 or 坐骑 of India’s 12 gods. And why was the rat or mouse number 1 ? Because it is the first one to attained enlightment or 得道 or 立地成佛 !

  • Siberian tiger:

    A more accurate way to describe is the number of tigers living in the wild, mainly the natural reserves, located across India, has increased from around 1000 to around 3000 in the past decades.

    This of course is a remarkable achievement. But 3000 is still too little for the tigers to bounce back to its sustainable levels as the national reserves are detached from each other and are quite small.

    Lately, a tiger without the black stripes across its body, whole body covered only in orange colour of different tones, was spotted in one of the national parks, a strong indication that it is caused by inbreeding!

    The natural environment in China is too mountainous which is less favourable for the animals in the wild to breed large scale. Now one could only find Siberian tigers in the wild. All other species of tigers have said bye bye to the wild, you could find them only in the zoos or tiger breeding farms.

    Siberian tiger is the largest tiger on earth. Each individual requires much larger habitat to survive. They are solitary and most are now living in the far eastern region of Russia.

    Base on logic its reasonable and believable why India chose and rank rat as first.

    Whereas for China , given the Chinese character 大中华胶 大中华民族主义 ….its impossible they will chose a rat and rank as first. More likely a dragon or tiger. If say 农业社会, then a cow or horse or rooster. The Chinese scold people also use words like rats, dogs , pigs, snake e.g. 鼠輩, 过街老鼠, 猪狗不如, 蛇鼠一窝, ….. See a rat immediately whack. Especially the rat sneak in and makan the grains fruits foods.

    Ever viewed the documentary video on the rat temple in India.

    Rats were truly everywhere within the temple perimeter. Food was provided for them in abundance and the temple followers truly treated them with respect. One of the temple followers was seen putting food at the tip of his tongue and let the rats eat the food from his tongue.

    One thing in mind is how many such temples in India. How rats are being treated beyond the temple perimeter.
