Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe this is the first time in the history of The Straits Times that a photo showing a lady's back and hair made it to the front page of the newspaper! Strange photo isn't it? Where's her face? That lady is PAP's youngest candidate in this year's General Election, Ms Tin Pei Ling who is 27 years old, a senior associate at Ernst & Young Advisory and married to civil servant Ng How Yue, the principal private secretary (PPS) to the Prime Minister.
Yes, she's the same lady who in 2007 said in a speech that the widening gap between the lowest-income group and the well to do is not the government's responsibility.
The same lady who at a PAP Party Awards event stomped her feet in front of the camera when she didn't know what to say. Video above.
And yes, she's the same lady who in an interview given to My Paper today revealed that she wants to make friends with you online and then take you into the real world.
She's Tin Pei Ling. Yes, that's her. And yes, she wants your vote and maybe another Kate Spade handbag or two.
Update: He loves me. He loves me not! Does Tin Pei Ling really know? Or does she not?
Update: Our dear Tin Pei Ling even has a song written for her: "When I was just a little girl, I asked my mother what will I be? Will I be pretty? Will I be rich? Here's what she said to me. Que Pei Ling, Pei Ling. Get a rich husband, forget how old is he. The future is as bright as can be. Que Pei Ling, Pei Ling. Ferrari, LV.... (Thanks Mr Big)
