We do have the potentials to make better best use of talents to build up our society together. We want to expand our societal potentials, don't we? We want to have more friends and more wisdom in our lives, isn't it? We want to exert our wills independently without prejudice to the furthest...

You may wonder, why do I bother to set up an interest group for AC users interested in Southern American culture. Well, I think Southern America is much more positive as a culture than Singapore, for a Singaporean like me. It is because while I do not deny I am a Singaporean, I am, first and...

The Member of Parliament (working in a similar function to a Representative and/or a Senator in the United States) representing my electoral district, termed a constituency in my home country, is simply useless. He has a negative track record of working for the good of the disadvantaged...

The Singapore government announced to expand the number of places in its locally-funded universities from 27% of the primary 1 school cohort, to 40%. This may not be enough. As a Singaporean politician, Jenn Jeong Yee mentioned, he estimated that 41,000 Singaporeans are enrolled in...

Singapore has always been multicultural. Here, we have 200 years of continuous trading and development, so we have a multicultural society for around 200 years. Immigrants come in from the Malay Peninsula/Malaysia, Spice Islands in Indonesia, Siam/Thailand, China, India and recently...

It's really extraordinary in the Singapore Institute of Management (SIM), where I currently study a degree in Accounting and Finance. Given that society in Singapore in really hierarchical, there is no place for failures, or lower-than-expected outcomes for all students. The prevalent mood...

I feel that I am trained to live my parents' dreams, not mine. I just want to edit and share with my ideas freely, especially if it's for a good cause, like speaking out for people with Autism and striving for unity within the Autie community in my country, or saving the Earth, or even...

As mentioned recently, my purpose in life is to help to better the world through solving issues that affect my community, my society and the world I live in. My vision in life is to feel more energised every day, than the day before, and I feel really happily tired whenever I go to sleep...

I also have an inability to compromise, and this has an adverse effect on me and my life. My culture has a lot of grey areas. It could not accept mere yes and no's. I could not accept an ambivalent solution, it's either a 'yes' or a 'no' for me, and well, truth hurts. I always feel anxious...

As a teenager, it is when I found myself at odds with both my being as a teen, as well as an Aspie. Why can't I be like any other person? I feel that I lived through dark ages with little Aspie support, that has only been given after my teenage years (that is, around 3 years ago). How...

I enjoy reading this quote. 'I'd rather be hated for what I am, than to be loved for what I am not' - This is a classic quote by my favourite singer, Kurt Cobain. His style of angry grunge music expressed the frustrations of Generation X (those growing up in the early 1990's) and later...

Written by Keng Ann Yap, Tigris and another contributor in a forum, but I have to share these views here because it's simply too controversial to be put on a thread. A friend of mine asked me for my views about this article which offers an insight into the challenges faced by young people...

Indeed, after so much issues in my autism group, the two founders of my previous autism support group fell out due to petty disputes. It is over the insistence of one founder saying, 'some of us, who are in universities and colleges, deserve more support than those with no ability to do...

I confess: I got a conflict with a fellow user here from Singapore, stemming from a past conflict we have over our interpretations of correcting our stims - because I feel, well, that's what we are, stimming, who are you to correct us when you got stims yourself? He did tell me to stop...

http://www.aspiescentral.com/blogs/geordie/229-presidents-scholarship-involved-autism-work-boon-bane.html My articles are always for a niche audience: Singaporeans who care. It's ok if my previous articles don't garner enough people to read: for those who understand its contexts will feel...

This is just something I do, when I am feeling out of inspiration. Well, I'd it all planned out, as a matter of fact. I'll wake up in the morning, post on Facebook: I'd been doing well. Had great time with friends and family. Geordie Then I'll grab all the money I have. Wear a Tigers...

Visiting Sungei Lembing's Rainbow Waterfall This is the waterfall that I visited for almost a week. My parents and I went to visit the waterfall and we had great fun there. We went deep into the forests, before we finally reached the waterfall at 10am, when we could see a spectrum...

So what is the model minority? They refer to a minority group, which can be racial, religious or ethnic, and that they achieved a higher degree of success than the average person. The model minority in Singapore, my home country, would be the Chinese Christians. Chinese make up three...

People ask me when I wear baggy clothing, do you listen to hip hop or rap? Even though I do, I say no. I say I'm buying these for a big-szed friend. Oh, that's MY ego. :) I do not feel that I can control the outcome of everything. Not even how I carry my clothes. Well, that's just...

What do you do when God is not present when you need Him the most? For one of my friends, he just feels so lonely that he led a life of self-destruction. He doesn't trust anybody, and he wants things to be done more of his way. He just feels that life is unfair... and to him, going to...
