Waz so special about downtown Orchard Rd, GG?

In Humour on 09/05/2014 at 5:23 am

I can’t stop laughing at Gilbert Goh’s assertion that downtown Orchard Rd and in particular Civil Plaza Ngee Ann City is so sovereign a place that by partying there our sovereignty is being threatened.

Civil Plaza Ngee Ann City.is sacred soil.

The Filipinos can celebrate it in the embassy ground, hotel ballroom or even in a park but doing it in downtown Orchard Road is a slap to our face and more importantly give us the feeling that our sovereignty is being threatened.

We also guard our independence zealously and would not want to share it with any other nationality.

Somehow  GG, I don’t think the Filipinos are claiming sovereignty, de jure or de facto, over sowntown Orchard Rd, even though I’m sure that if they wanted to they could claim de jure sovereignty over Filipino Lucky Plaza. But the Pinoys have two fights with the Chinese (Chinese giving pinoys the bird) over rocks in the South China Sea and are begging Uncle Sam to help them. Taz Pinoy Pride for you: always relying on white elder brudder.

I can understand (though not agree with) the call to make the Pinoy event on 8 June a private affair on embassy grounds, or a hotel ballroom. But why is it OK to hold it in a public park (last yr) but not in downtown Orchard Rd? Waz so special about downtown Orchard Rd, that a party there means our sovereignty is being threatened.

Does GG understand the meaning of “sovereignty” as it is understood in public int’l law? From those who know this topic, apparently not.

BTW, GMS in a comment here promised a thesis on how our sovereignty is violated by Pinoy partying in Civil Plaza. Still waiting lor. Suspect that by the time GMS stands in in next GE, he still wouldn’t have delivered his analysis. It’s a shame as I  didn’t do public int’l law at law school and had looked forward to GMS analysis.

Maybe they are mixing up sovereignty with our national religion and our nation ideology, crass materialism? Downtown Orchard Rd is our temple of materialism, our sacred soil, our Holy of Holies. If then say so.

Oh but then maybe GG is another alien brought here in UFO Goh Meng Seng. He like PM, the police chief, Kirsten Hanand Heart Truths are aliens. In GG’s S’pore in another time and space downtown Orchard Rd is disputed sovereign territory juz like the rocks in the South Chins Sea are in this world.

Double confirm he’s an alien here via Goh Meng Seng’s UFO. He asks the Pinoys, Moreover, will you be happy if we celebrate our national day in a downtown shopping belt in Manila by the thousands openly waving our flag and signing our national anthem?

Having lived in Manila, I’m sure the Filipinos wouldn’t mind, though they would ask us to also fly the Filipino flag and sing their nation anthem. But most probably thaz not the case in GG’s Philippines in another space and time.

My serious point is that the antics of GG, Goh Meng Seng and friends make it easier for the likes of PM and his Pappies and  Kirsten Han to paint tar people like me who oppose the PAP govt’s policy of “FTS all the way” as irrational.

And I resent that GG uses “We” to include me. I’ve not given him my permission to include me among his nutters.

The Filipinos can celebrate it in the embassy ground, hotel ballroom or even in a park but doing it in downtown Orchard Road is a slap to our face and more importantly give us the feeling that our sovereignty is being threatened.

  1. ‘My serious point is that the antics of GG, Goh Meng Seng and friends make it easier for the likes of PM and his Pappies and  Kirsten Han to paint tar people like me who oppose the PAP govt’s policy of “FTS all the way” as irrational.’

    I reckon based on what you regularly churn out and massage that’s pretty impossible. As your writings really speak for themselves in so many ways which you obviously can’t fathom as to how it comes across to the perceptive reader.

    Do try to have a nice day.

    Darkness 2014

  2. kirsten han married a caucasian brit man during her stay in brit from 2010 to early 2014 and she is now waiting for the approval of her brit spousal marriage visa so that she can relocate back to brit.

  3. Who gives a shit where they celebrate??? They can do it in Padang or National Stadium or outside Istana (not inside) for all I care…
