Appreciation Lunch

WP held an Appreciation Lunch for the volunteers at Ban Heng located at Harbourfront City on 29 May. Volunteers who did not expect any returns, any free meals, chartered buses, or priority in anything.

There were about 10,000 volunteers who attended the meaningful lunch. All of us were like one big family. Walking around the different tables, chatting with people from all walks of life as if we were old friends.

Perhaps it was our common interest and perspective in politics, there wasn't any invisible boundary that separated us, no matter rich or poor, young or old.

Managed to make some new friends, and took some pictures.

With Mr LTK

With Mr Chen SM - Extremely polite and gentlemen

With my MP - S Lim

Recently, I was reading a book by Dr Chee and would like to share this with the readers.

Food for thought.

He who dominates over you has only two eyes, only two hands, only one body, no more than is possessed by the least...among the infinite numbers dwelling in your cities; he has indeed nothing more than power you confer on him to destroy you. How has he acquired enough eyes to spy upon you, if you do not provide them yourselves? How can he have so many arms to beat you with, if he does not borrow them from you? The feet that trample down your cities, where does he get them if they are not your own? How does he have any power over you, except through you? What could he do to you if you yourselves did not connvie with the thief who plunders you? If you were not accomplice ofcthe murderer who kills you? If you were not traitors to yourselves? - Etienne de la Boetie, French philosopher
