PM Lee Rally in Boat Quay

May 3, 2006 at 11:15 p05 (General Chatter)

after lunch eat snake went to attend PM Lee rally at Boat Quay near UOB Plaza . It was a hot afternoon and the organiser was smart to organise it under the shade of the UOB Plaza lobby. I was late and there was already a big crowd when i reached…

the rally site was easy to find… but to my surprise the stage was obsecured and "low' in profile… fighting my way to the front to get a view of the great man…

hei… this is no PM LEE? wrong rally! diu! why the police didn't stop her..ah! wasted my precious lunch time!

finally found the rally site… the camera tent… with stage and proper shade… hmm…where is PM Lee ah?

there he is…PM Lee!! and the Jalan Besar Members of Parliment… at 1.30 pm it was hot and sunny. someone had obviously forgot to put a shade over the stage. this is really one hot rally where our MPs got to really sweat it out! Not to mention the distraction and competition from the old lady who was holding her own mini rally a stone throw away…

a 3 hours rally under the hot sun, this is no joke… or issit intentional? PM Lee's way of putting his Jalan Besar's GRC team through the fire test, maybe and telling us he meant business?

    I think the no-top-cover-stage is deliberate. I mean, they know it’s the rainy season too, right?

    What I noted was there weren’t any mineral water bottles for the folks on stage. Pity them though.

    wah, you really seem to be very keen in the political ongoing there. harbouring secret ambition of joining the political scene ah? or are you already one of the MPs? *shocked*

    I guess lunchtime rallies can never be as popular as those held at night here in Singapore where many people hate the sun ;p Opposition rallies where the candidates scold the government are much more fun afterall. Ha, ha, ha…! 😀 People may cheer, clap, laugh, roar and whistle but that doesn’t mean they will vote for opposition ;p

    i checked liao…got mineral bottles…at the foot of the chair. it is still a tough call for PM Lee to expose his minister to sun stroke.
