She's not ugly, but I wouldn't throw my career away for her.


Can you imagine the inanities they uttered to each other? Actually you don't have to! They're on record for posterity.

Especially in Singapore of all places. So many discreet options he could have used instead.

Well, Mr Palmer will be resorting to the services of Mrs Palm and her five daughters (or four daughters and one short ugly son) for some time now me thinks.

We discussed this case in our condo committee meeting last night - most Singaporeans are quite upset at 'losing' a policitican of his calibre and the men frankly don't give a toss about him having a bit of fluff. The women though - whoa! - they'd castrate him. Some men mentioned 'integrity' as being part of the issue.

The general consensus was that he had been good enough to be the next PM and it was a waste of his talents to lose him.

I am always amazed how much people care about other people sex life. Gay, straight does not matter. Slept with him, slept with her, a blowjob at the backyard and wife that was pretty pretty. Have it as a subject for any formal committee meeting - priceless.

As I understand, those are the main headlines for SG news since they don't have much else to talk about.
If you read some psychology, when people see there is talk about 1) money, 2) sex, or 3) murder and death, they are immediately interested (on the level of instincts).
So for the news:
1 - they're talking about it all the time: same pile of shit, different view angle every day,
3 - in comparison with other countries this happens really seldom in SG, and when it happens in most cases it is either an accident or somebody jumped into Bedok reservoir (everybody got used to that),
2nd - now that is what everybody is waiting for! :)

This is not the "they" part this is the "we" part that makes me amazed.

What I find even more amazing is the rampant naivete about sex, the world, and other things many of us take for granted as being commonplace or better understood.

Agree, the lady in that is pretty meh. Much of what goes for hot here wouldn't even warrant notice in Japan or Korea, but that's a personal opinion and very subjective.

STOMP alone gives a clear picture of this attitude towards sex.

he wouldn't be the first MP or even minister to have been unfaithful... if he hadn't been found out, she'd still be loving him long time.

whatever happened to burner cell phones.

It was a side discussion at the post meeting tea break. No minutes were taken.

I agree. This could usefully be a side-discussion of it's own. No no, I don't mean anything with a disparaging or negative tone to it, just seeking to better understand it. After all, it comes down to 'Horses for courses' as they say in England [i.e, when in Rome...]

My wife, who I married for her brains as well as her beauty, came out with a stunningly parochial and naive 'and yet very Singaporean' comment just yesterday, and I was just like .... Wow, where did that come from! :shock:

Good enough to be the next PM?
