Gilbert Koh Appears in Man/Born/Free

I mentioned several posts ago that I'm getting included in an anthology featuring writers from Singapore and South Africa. At that time, I didn't even know the title of the book, but now I do. It's Man/Born/Free, and from what I've gathered, contains political overtones and is, ahem, mildly subversive in nature.

For those interested, the book launches on 26 March, as part of a wider event at the Arts House (it's their 7th anniversary celebrations). Details, details:

If not will a small country had $200 billion dollars in reserves, only 2 opposition out of 84 seats, something must be wrong.

Is this what Lim Boon Heng touted as 'empowering the elderly'?

They do not even have a say regarding their own CPF savings.
