i am miak. it sounds malay, indian, thai, and anything but chinese. it is not on my IC, though i wanted to put it in because my lawyer friend said it would be a nightmare to redo all my contracts.
i hope to complete ten marathons in my life. i have finished three so far.
whenever i return back to singapore from an overseas trip, i am glad. glad to return to home. strange that it is on my trips away that i learn more about singapore. things we take for granted - how green our country is, how we don't think twice drinking tap water, how safe the streets are, even in the middle of the night.
i am gay. i take drugs. lots of drugs - paracetamol, claritin, dhasedyl and amoxyilin. is glucosamine a drug?
i have less sex than the average singaporean - less than 73 times a year. wish i could do better though. not good to pull down the national average. wait, is gay sex included in the national average?
i believe that the success of the nation is measured, not how many number ones it has (number one airline, number one airport, number one whatever), or how rich the rich are, but by the quality of life of the poorest.
i was appalled during when i saw the conditions some old folks live in - their one room flat infested with bed bugs, without anyone bothering to visit them, and even more heartbreaking - the fact that strangers were more willing to help them than their own flesh and blood.
i believe in the words i recited more than a thousand times in my life, probably more than the people who run our country. that regardless of race, language, religion or sexual orientation - we build a democratic society based on justice and equality.
i believe that there are others like me, who share in this dream.
i am miak, i am siew meng ee, i am singaporean.
so say we all
so say we all
