Fancy a holiday tour group led by MP?

Postby LOLMum » Sat Oct 08, 2011 2:30 pm

saw this on asia forum today.

Fancy joining a holiday tour group led by your Member of Parliament (MP)?

This seems to be precisely what is happening in Aljunied and Hougang!

Hougang MP Yaw Shin Leong and Aljunied MP Low Thia Khiang will be leading such a holiday tour group to China in early November.

The group, made up of residents from the two constituencies, will be holidaying in Kunming, Dali and Lijiang.

This is not the first time that holiday tours were organised by Worker's Party MPs.

Low, the former MP for Hougang, have been leading tour groups in his former constituency to places like the Three Gorges in China, as well as to Taiwan in the past years.

These tours are now also available to Aljunied residents ever since the Worker's Party scored a victory in the constituency at the recent elections.

The MPs believe that the tour will help residents from the two constituencies get to know each other better.

According to Yaw, there are many elderly residents in Hougang and Aljunied who love to take part in such activities.

However, past experience indicate that the tours have been popular with residents of all ages and not just the elderly.

Finally, Yaw added, "Everyone is relaxed when holidaying, including Mr Low and me. This will be a great opportunity to interact with the residents. They can also holiday with the MPs as friends."

That's good. Getting to know the residents. Not once a 5 year thing where residents only meet the MP.

is it a political strategy ... easier to win votes next time, win back people's heart & support ?

if the tour is led by a potential president one day - would you like to join the tour ?

it is a good 'Get to know your MP' or 'Get to know your President' session - during this minimum 1 week long holiday overseas together, whereby can makan, dine and chit chat together.
