MDA unplugged TRS before we could

Pity the MDA beat us to finish you off TRS. I would have loved for this experiment to continue. It was a good opportunity for us to be educated in real time how irresponsible you were, to see readership rise and then fall as more people hate you for your real colors; to watch how you collect more and more rope to hang yourself.

On the other hand the regulator would hate to see self regulation. Every day they don't act against you is another nervous day for them. Every day they ask if they are doing their job. In fact higher ups probably had to restrain them to make you becoming unreal.

Yet on the other hand our financial regulator are not regulating enough because they have become promoters.

This place is getting curiouser. Keep this up and you are going to confuse people and foreign investors. This is the result of smart people running the show without compensating wisdom. Sadly I didn't know how to explain it quickly and succinctly without using a technical metaphor.

Really you have to explain why the policies are wise more than smart. Smart is too difficult for most but everyone can appreciate wisdom. In that way you reach out to as many as possible.

Really, the Real Singapore was so unREAL.

So it is not real anymore.


  1. Dear PengYou,

    Apologies for the unsolicited email but my name is Luke, from Inconvenient Questions SG. We are one of Singapore's newest socio-political platform which aims to be the middle ground for engagement and discussions for pertinent issues.

    The reason why I am writing to you is to extend an invitation to your society and its members to join our upcoming debateIQ happening on May 13th, called "Rules of Engagement?". debateIQ is one of the key features of our site, where we invite prominent members of the public, academician and even politicians to exchange views on a particular topic in an hour plus session. In our previous sessions, we have had Minister Masagos, Josephine Teo and K Shanmugam as our panellists. You can find more details of this event at

    This would be a good avenue to get your voices heard and your questions broadcasted to a wider audience, as the event will be filmed and publicized on our channel with more than 9000+ likes.

    Do let me know if this is something that you would be interested in? Do drop me an email at luke@inconvenientquestions for more info/questions.

    1. Thanks Luke but I am only keen to read what happened during the session than to be there, much less get involved.
