LEE KUAN YEW [D1.シンガポール]


   先日、Lee Kuan Yow が亡くなったので、シンガポール帰任時に部下から貰ったこの本を読みました。彼の見解は明快なのでわかりやすいです。

 そう言えば、4年前に彼の本を読みました。「HARD TRUTHS to keep Singapore going」これは、450ページもの大作で、生きているうちに残しておきたかった事を書いたのでしょう。

  Marina Bay has become an iconic site in Singapore. However I didn't have a chance to take a photo in front of the Merlion before. It was a good chance to take with him or her.

Farewell Gift -Message Cards [D1.シンガポール]


  Another farewell gift is the message card. In Japan we call this "Yosegaki". I have received more than 60 message sheets. I bought the one clear file folder to contain all these sheets into one. The photoes and names in the message sheets will help me to recall all these colleagues in the future.

Lo-hei [D1.シンガポール]


  We had annual Div chinese new year party and celebrated taking Lo-hei.

  According to wikipedia, Yusheng, yee sang or yuu sahng (Chinese: 鱼生; pinyin: yúshēng; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: hî-seⁿ or hû-siⁿ), or Prosperity Toss, also known as lo hei (Cantonese for 撈起 or 捞起) is a Teochew-style raw fish salad. It usually consists of strips of raw fish (most commonly salmon), mixed with shredded vegetables and a variety of sauces and condiments, among other ingredients. Yusheng literally means "raw fish" but since "fish (鱼)" is commonly conflated with its homophone "abundance (余)", Yúshēng (鱼生) is interpreted as a homophone for Yúshēng (余升) meaning an increase in abundance. Therefore, yusheng is considered a symbol of abundance, prosperity and vigor.

While versions of it are thought to have existed in China, the contemporary version is created and popularised in the 1960s amongst the ethnic Chinese community and its consumption has been associated with Chinese New Year festivities in Singapore as well as in neighbouring Malaysia. In Singapore, government, community and business leaders often take the lead in serving the dish as part of official functions during the festive period or in private celebrity dinners.

 After the dinner, KARAOKE started...

Chinese New Year [D1.シンガポール]


  恭喜发财!(Gōngxǐ fācái!) I wish You Great Prosperity!
Happy New Year of the Dragon!
This morning, we were all happily entertained by the brightly colored lions which bowed and danced in our office to the crashing of the cymbals and the beating of the drums. In fact, it was my first up close and personal experience with the Chinese lion dance and I certainly found it very interesting.

The secretary night [D1.シンガポール]

  The ad-hoc task is the one of the toughest work. A secretary is the expert to manage these tasks. That's why I have been doing the Secretary Night in the year end for several years to show my appreciation to her. I invite her a dinner in a cosy restraunt together with other boss and his secretary.

Heart works 2 - EDB & Partners: New Frontiers for the Singapore Economy [D1.シンガポール]


Fifty years is a solid milestone for any organisation. For the Singapore Economic Development Board, it is a time to recharge for the challenges ahead, but also to reflect on core values and the course of its evolution. The agency's drive and determination are derived from a resilience embedded in its organisational culture - in particular, the exercise of leadership at all levels, from the formulation of strategy to adroitness on the ground in anticipating and meeting the needs of investors and rallying the necessary partners from all quarters.

Looking to the next half-century, as new frontiers are crossed, the focus shifts to fostering an even deeper connectedness to Singapore. The city-state is being enhanced, in every way feasible, as a "home" in Asia, in all its senses, for business, innovation and talent. The Republic's well-honed and well-known key attributes of trust, knowledge, connectedness and high standard of living make it very well-placed to be a "living lab" to develop new sustainable solutions for tomorrow's global opportunities in emerging areas such as the urban environment, health and wellness, lifestyle and entertainment.

Singapore is aiming to equip itself to be always ready to be a home for the high-growth industries of the future. And, so long as the EDB and its partners keep in touching distance of the most promising new frontiers, Singapore should remain "future-ready".

Wedding [D1.シンガポール]

   Yesterday 29 Apr 2011 ... The United Kingdom of Great Britain  had "The Royal Wedding". Prince William and Miss Catherine Middleton got married.


  Tonight, the princess in our company also had the wedding. So I went with my wife and her sister who just come to Singapore today.


  She was so beautiful and looked happiest. She is just three years elder than my daughter. I do understand her fathers' mixed feeling.

HARD TRUTHS to keep Singapore going [D1.シンガポール]


 Mr Lee Kuan Yew speaks very clearly Singapore's vulnerability as hard truth and keep telling Singaporean to be better. I feel it is too clear as politician. It's very interesting book.

【Strate Times】A NEW book to be launched on Jan 21 will offer a rare glimpse into the mind of the most influential man in Singapore's history.

Titled 'Lee Kuan Yew: Hard Truths to Keep Singapore Going', it is based on 16 interviews the Minister Mentor gave to seven journalists from The Straits Times from December 2008 to October 2009.

The 458-page, 11-chapter tome is a comprehensive examination of Mr Lee's beliefs. It covers weighty topics such as Singapore's political system, climate change and international relations, but also lighter ones, like his views on tattoos, fengshui and movies.

One distinctive feature is its extensive use of the question-and-answer format, which the authors hoped would engage younger readers and capture unvarnished, the robust exchanges between Mr Lee and his interviewers.

'There hasn't been a book like this where his views are subjected to such intense questioning and scrutiny in 32 hours of interviews,' said The Straits Times editor Han Fook Kwang, 57, who led the team of seven writers.

Marina Bay Sands Hotel [D1.シンガポール]


  最近できたMarina Bay Sands Hotelの57階の屋上で、イベントに招待されたので行ってきました。カジノもある超バブリーなホテルです(一泊最低5万円)。Singaporeは景気いいですね。こういうバブリーなイベントを見ると、日本の沈滞ムードとアジアの活力に差を感じます。

West Coast [D1.シンガポール]



  じゃあ、園芸屋にも行ったし、もう家に帰ろうかとカミさんに言うと、「じゃあ、もっとドライブを続けよう」という事になり(涙)、あてもなく北上します。北上しているつもりが、西横になり、ふらふら進んでいると、なんとWest Coastに着きました。

 まあ、East Coastも行ったので、今日は、WestCoastにしようと、わけのわからない理屈で、ちょっと寄ってみました。まあ、いろんな人がそれなりの休日を過ごしているといるという感じですか。

 適当に行っていると、園芸屋は見えます。「それでは、ここにでもいってみる」ということで行きました。Thomson Roadには、園芸屋さんが並んでいるようです。JM Flowerというところへ行ってみると結構でかい店でした。しかし日本とくらべると安いですね。
