WP in Parliament (11 April 2007) - Sylvia Lim

Dear Ministers,

It is not that you do not deserve to be paid well, please remember that you are drawing your pay from taxpayer's money, many whom are struggling to live with the GST hike to 7%, which is even higher than even that of Japan. I believe that you are in your post not because of the remuneration, but because of your public spiritedness, of serving the people. However, it will not be possible to continue to lead "by example", to tell the people to accept CPF cuts and other belt tightening measures during tough economic times, when you are drawing such astronomical high pay. As NCMP Sylvia Lim so aptly pointed out, the mean average salary of $4.5k, which is more than the amount that I will be paid A month working 8am to 11pm every day, would be able to be earned by you, the minister, in a matter of 2 days. I believe that good leaders would work for the people even if the pay was not excellent. I believe that our first generation leaders, Minister Mentor Lee included, who built Singapore when Singapore was still a riotous poverty stricken third world country did so EVEN WITHOUT earning 10, 100, 1000 times more than the average professional lawyer, banker, doctor, because back then, they were truly, public servants.

Regards, and with utmost respect,
Subzerohell

Back from my year long stint in Japan
Landed myself a job at my firm of choice
Hanging out with friends that I havent seen for a year
Life is surreal. Its as if I have never left

Laksa & Coke, taken with Lomo pop9

Home. 5 days. Local food. Landing a job at my firm of choice. Driving again after a year. Jazz. Term papers. Balmy humidity. Poolside lazing. Sleepless world cup nights.

It was then I realised that although nothing seemed to have changed, we talk as if we just met each other yesterday (yes, yesterday 2005), I was comforted by that fact, but deep in the recesses of my mind, I knew every one of my friends are now in a different phase of life than when they were at the point of time when I left them to pursue my own destiny. Me too, in fact. Then again, talking to you once again reminds me of how lucky I really, really am.
