Best Wishes to Finance Minister Mr. Heng Swee Kiat

When my brother passed away during the 2011 GE, Mr Heng Swee Kiat paid a visit during his wake while we were contesting against each other. It was a good gesture.

We may stand on the different sides of the political field but our contest is for the future of Singapore. Nothing personal.

Best Wishes to Mr. Heng. I hope he could overcome his current medical conditions and has a speedy recovery.

Goh Meng Seng, why don't you pay a visit to Mr Heng in hospital?

Then write about the experience and outcome, or what visiting protocol they accorded you.

Chinese Wisdom below.

VERY SOUND & TIMELY CHINESE ADVICE TO ALL OF US.........

CHINESE ADVICE TO 50-YEARS OLD & OLDER

Because none of us have many years to live, and we can't take along anything when we go, so we don't have to be too thrifty.

Spend the money that should be spent, enjoy what should be enjoyed, donate what you are able to donate

DON'T WORRY about what will happen after we are gone, because when we return to dust, we will feel nothing about praises or criticisms. The time to enjoy the worldly life and your hard earned wealth will be over!

DON'T WORRY too much about your children, for children will have their own destiny and should find their own way. Care for them, love them, give them gifts but also enjoy your money or what is left of it, while you can. Life should have more to it than working from the cradle to the grave!!

50-year olds, don't trade in - your health for wealth, by working yourself to an early grave anymore. Because your money may not be able to buy your health.

When to stop making money, and how much is enough?
(A HUNDRED thousand, One million, ten million, One billion?)

Out of thousand hectares of good farm land, you can consume only three quarts (of rice) daily; out of a thousand mansions, you only need eight square meters of space to rest at night.

So, as long as you have enough food and enough money to spend, that is good enough. You should live happily. Every family has its own problems

ABOVE ALL_
Learn to cherish the goodness around.
