Eeny, meenie, miney, Tan

The presidential election campaign is in full swing and I’ve just received my voter card in the exciting. For the first time in 33 years, I get to vote for something in Singapore!

Conveniently for me, the polling station is just the next block!

There are 4 Tans to choose from, Tan Cheng Bock, Tony Tan, Tan Jee Say and Tan Kin Lian. I have more or less decided on whom I’m voting for, I don’t think the campaigning will really change my mind although I have a back-up choice.

Posters have been hung up all around the island, just walking from my bus-stop to my office I get 3 candidate posters. But there aren’t that many Tan Cheng Bock ones, he has a different strategy and actually mailed a flyer to all eligible households.

I actually want my president to be ceremonial and custodial, am not looking for someone to challenge the government, plus the first lady has to look first lady-ish to me and only 2 qualify in my book!

Unfortunately the boy won't get to vote, he just left for the States this morning, lucky bum will be gallivanting around Arizona and the Grand Canyon!
