Ike See

I was browsing through Tomorrow and came across a post by Mr Wang, which was about how our local talent, Ike See may have to give up a music scholarship due to NS (Yeah, auntie me dont read newspapers mah so only know now..)

When i understand what was going on, i know more and more why i dont want to stay in Singapore (but no choice cos i am not talented). The thinking of the government in Singapore is too rigid, regardless of which political party. All they can see is the big picture, the main section of the people.. because that guarantee the support. Who cares about the Arts.. everyone is busy with making money and more money..

Then why bother wasting our money on building the Esplanade? Now, we may have a talent who can perform in the Esplanade but was denied. The government do not seem to understand how important a scholarship is to the poor, who wanted just a chance to pursue their dreams. Is that so hard for one to hope?

    Esplanade is to showcast world talents and hopefully to draw more singaporean to be more appreciative of arts instead of tv box, soap operas etc hahaha ...
