IN PURSUIT OF SELF
When money and only money matters like it has in Singapore for generations, it breeds Annabel Chong, Felicia Tang and at least 20 other Singaporean Chinese middle class girls like them. Many end up permanently addicted to drugs or sex or both. A tragedy when one considers the very high premium the Chinese especially from Singapore place on the virtues of chastity, honour, family and sobriety.
What is this growing trend amongst Singapores finest citizens which we have known little about till now. Is this what the pressure cooker of an existence typical of Singapore’s Kia Su mentality breeds?
Watch the life of Annabel Chong here. But be warned the film contains explicit sex scenes and language many may find offensive. Watch it with an open mind. It also foretells of a future in a DAP Kiasu world of money money money. Then ask the question, “Who is minding the children?”.
Annabel Chongs expression of rebellion against her Singapore upbringing was to engage in a sex marathon with 200 males in a 10 hour period. She went further on another occasion to try to break that record. It was Anabel’s contribution to the world. It was in some respects also in many respects Singapore’s contribution to the world too.
One branch of feminism celebrates the “right of women to control their bodies”. That idea provides the platform upon which entertainers like Madonna have built their reputations and their millions as “entertainers” with a message for women. Annabel Chong took it one step further. Or should we say 200 steps further.
WHEN GOD IS SUBSERVIENT TO MAN
Annabel Chong is every parent’s nightmare. Annabel Chong is the unavoidable inevitable by product of a society that cherishes and reveres the dollar over everything else. A society whose Gods can be bribed with a roast suckling pig, pomeloes, apples and mandarins. Gods whose existence is manifested in garish images in the Tokongs one finds in abundance in unplanned structures permitted in Theresa Kok’s and Guan Eng’s constituencies.
Annabel Chong’s world is a DAP type society in which prostitution and mistresses are a virtue if you end up being rich. It is a world where slavery and sleaze is tolerated and celebrated if you can get away with it. It is an existence where any vice is celebrated as a virtue if there is money in it.
Annabel Chong’s parents like many Singaporeans (DAP’s role model) pursued that Singaporean Kiasu model not knowing what they were really missing out on in life or what they were creating for their futures. After all they had the house, the car and the job.
Like many Malaysians Annabel Chong did get an education abroad then screamed out for change for change’s sake. Annabel Chong too wanted to be heard. And this is how she did it. Annabel ended up like the many in that Kiasu culture wanting attention at any cost. Just like those many Annabel Chongs at a Bersih rally. But this is how Annabel Chong did it.
THEY OWN EVERYTHING – EVEN YOUR SOUL
Singapore is the only society on gods earth that had to teach its citizens to smile. It ran a campaign to teach a constipated, oppressed and spiritually bankrupt production line to do something as basic as breaking a smile. It boasts one of the highest income per capita’s in the developing world and perhaps the whole world. Yet it has lost its soul.
What Singapore can’t produce or create it will buy. The arts, creativity, music and theatre. But it can’t stop the migration, the suicides and the marriage break ups. It assembles what others create. That too comes with a price tag. A human cost. Annabel Chong.
Singapore has now imported a new version of god (the Christian evangelical churches). These new gods compete with Coca cola and McDonalds for hearts and minds of the faithful and is sold high pressure, multi level like Amway is to a nation of 5 million struggling to recognize its soul. The result is a million hidden Annabel Chongs.
THE MALAYSIAN OPPOSITION AND THE CULT OF THE KIASU CULTURE
Today Guan Eng, Bersih, Theresa Kok and their petty little Indian baggage boys would like to turn Malaysia into another Singapore.
Before you cast your ballot this month, watch Annabel Chongs story. It is a story of conflict. A conflict between reality and the manufactured reality of economic success in a high pressure kiasu society. A conflict of the worst kind. It tears the soul apart. Internalized, it is a clash of a culture alien to the oriental soul.
Kiasu is an idea, a concept for which there is no antidote but self destruction. The DAP fathers many Annabel Chongs. Their existence is all about being drawn into the vortex of Kiasu.
WARNING- THE TRUTH IS NOT A PRETTY PICTURE-NEITHER IS THE DAP
Warning the documentary contains explicit sex and nudity scenes. It contains language that many would find offensive. More important it is a soul wrenching experience you would never wish upon your worst enemy. In it Annabel Chong, a graduate of a fine Californian university, a guest speaker at Cambridge and her parents are all casualties. Casualties of the Kiasu culture Guan Eng wants for Malaysians.
Annabel Chong and her family are not alone. There are many many more Annabel Chongs now in the west having migrated there to escape the totalitarian mind numbing culture of Kiasu in the DAP role model created first in the laboratories of Singapore. These are migrants trying to find their way amongst the rest of humanity where their Kiasu values are despised.
Cast the wrong ballot come election day you will trade your souls for the money and the values for a life of Annabel Chong. Remember she is not alone.
In the end and tragically her mother is shown trying to absorb the shock of the revelation of Annabel Chong’s other life whilst at the same time struggling to understands her wayward damaged daughter inspite of how painful it has all become for the mother.
She is seen begging Annabel Chong her daughter to restore to her dignity as any daughter in that position should do for her mother.
Remember the Confusion values of Lee Kuan Yew? Filial piety he said was one of the highest of duties under that system of values he used to underwrite the Singapore morality.
Like her parents Annabel Chong is Chinese. Like all Asians believe there is no price for the dignity of a human being, unless of course, like the DAP and Singapore you worship the cult of Kiasu and all that it embodies.
38% of Singapore’s population today is foreign born. Which means 38% have left. Migrated abroad. 38% may have become Annabel Chongs elsewhere.
