    Default Foo Mee Har - How did she ever pass the tea party?

    This lady began life as head of contact centre (customer service) for SCB. Her constant lunch and coffee break partner was her boss and head of consumer banking. The only other person she goes out for lunch is with the Head of HR. Clearly we are looking at an ambitious but not too smart individual. A good dresser with expensive taste in clothes even in that junior role, I am not sure how she will fit the bill of an MP who cares for her ward.

    By the way, her hubby has little clue what has been going on.

    I find it hard that PAP can't even find appropriate talent. Maybe its time for Lim Kim San to rise from the dead and old man to stop galavanting around the world and do the selection.

    A quick Internet search turns up some interesting information.

    http://webcache.googleusercontent.co...www.google.com
    She's married to a chap called CHAN Teck-Hock, Bernard, who was gracious enough to follow her around as she went on her overseas postings, wearing the pants in the family.

    I was as surprised as anyone, but admired her husband's decisions and obvious self-confidence. Then I chanced upon this interesting thing:
    http://app.supremecourt.gov.sg/data/...2-2006(bp).pdf
    THE HIGH COURT OF THE REPUBLIC OF SINGAPORE

    Bankruptcy Order
    How ironic that his wife's bank was the one seeking a bankruptcy order against him. Anyone care to shed some light on this?

    It's an 'open market' now. If Tharman could be made minister despite conviction under OSA, Bernard's case falls short. It is FMH and not Bernard standing for GE. I suspect she is 'linked' to someone quite power in the PAP for them to bypass Bernard's past. Miracles do happen.

    Dresser? Even a hairdresser in the heartlands has a better hairdo. Her hairdo is so passe - ala Aneka Gronloh, Skeeter Davies, or even Doris Day! My Gawd!

    Loser Lim Hng Kiang gonna have another bimbo to comment upon.

    Question now for me is very simple with that non NS Indian chap pouncing around. Any of the six candidates "new citizen"?
    Have a better day tomorrow!

    I appreciate reputation points but please do not expect me to give back in return. I only give for quality posts. Cheers!

    Unhappy Re: Foo Mee Har - How did she ever pass the tea party?

    I have had the misfortune of working with this person in the bank. If you do not help her in climbing the corporate ladder, you only get to speak to the secretary.

    She is decked out in Chanel suits, drives a big car, makes large bonuses by talking, what would she know about the poor and the helpless?

    From 15, she has been in boarding school. A malaysian who can go overseas, clearly a priveleged life. What would she know about the heartlanders?

    Did she get to be a "banker" by doing what she knows? Nope. It is about what you say, what you wear and who you talk to that makes you a big banker.

    I fell off my chair when I saw her in the papers. The government has finally shown that it is all about the superficial that they are keen in. What is real and genuine is all talk!

    It is the woe of Singaporeans when she is part of PAP. We have finally reached the beginning of the end.....

    PAP seems to have this incredible ability of picking the "wrong" type of people supposedly coming from the private sector eg teo ser luck, Fool Me Huh,

    Foo Mee Har is what I term a "business socialite". Turning the flashy and ostentatious trappings of a privileged background into a corporate image complete with mystique. I would say, one hell of a sexy woman. Not that bimbo kind of sexiness you find at Alcova or Butter Factory, but the real high end exclusive type.

    But a politician? A POLITICIAN? Oh ... no, no.

    A lot of people are stunned by her appointment. The fact that she chose her boss and the head of HR for lunch partner speaks volumes. Very soon her extra curricular activities will soon surface. Her first boss WC had his career stifled because of her.

    This lady does not fit the profile of your usual socialite. This one does not socialise with anyone except people who have an impact on her immediate career.

    Scro, it's all groupthink now. Birds of the same feathers flock together. These are people who

    1. will only be in politics for the money
    2. think that receiving millions of dollars in pay is peanuts
    3. will step on your heads as they climb
    4. will kiss their bosses' asses while kicking our balls

    She has not quit her day job, so is it safe to assume she will be just an MP in a GRC?

    1. It speaks volume of the way MPs are elected, or should I put, walk over the finish line at election. She is not there for politics
    2. Singapore MPs still lead very private lives. Otherwise, she will not be bothered join politics.

    Singapore way of politics have graduated now that there are people like her.
    Correct me if I am wrong, LKY will fail her based on the fact that she is not a people person.

    By boss you meant MD? Unlikely right?
