Why otters support the PAP and (some) hate Meng Seng

Recently, I read in Ottercity that otters from Johor (my kind of FTs repopulated  via the Sungei Buloh swamps in the 1990s. They had become extinct here.

This reminded me that the otters in S’pore are natural PAP supporters and if they can vote will always vote for the PAP. Why?

Not only because recently Grace Fu posted on FB pictures of a lost pup and telling people to be careful when they drive in the Jurong area. (It rejoined the family safely.)

The real reason is that S’pore is a really safe place for the otters.

More than 70% of otters for sale are under one year of age, when they are still dependant on their family.

Our report on the Southeast Asian illegal otter trade took two years of research and investigations to produce and highlights the true face of otter trade.

Hence otters have been emigrating here since the 1990s from Johor. Although Bumis, they are not treated as such. Possible reason? Why Malay name for “otter” is apt

As to why the Bishan and Marina families hate Goh Meng Seng, it’s because because if he had his way there wouldn’t be today’s Bishan Park. After GE 2011, he KPKBed that the PAP town council running Bishan was squandering money which the town council didn’t have to develop Bishan Park.

As usual the talk cock, sing king promised to monitor developments there and highlight the cock-ups. He never did, But to be fair to him, he may have realised that he was wrong about the lack of money. But that would be a first, Meng Seng realising that he got things wrong.

Coming back to the otters: Pa and Ma Bishan otters who migrated from Johor would never have had Bishan Park as a home base if the PAP hadn’t developed the park against Goh Meng Seng’s advice.

For those who don’t follow the otter tales, the Bishan family (FT Pa, Ma and their S’pore born kids) kicked the Marina Bay family (true blue S’poreans though descended from FT otters also) out of Marina Bay and moved there Eventually the Marina Bay otters found their way to the Lower Peirce Reservoir and now regularly visit the now vacated Bishan Park.

Coming back to Meng Seng. The adult Bishan and Marina otters tell misbehaving pups that if they are naughty Meng Seng will eat them.
