Punggol East By-Election – Results Prediction

Our Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong had made up his mind to call for a by-election for Punggol East SMC.

At 4pm today, President Tony Tan Keng Yam issued a writ of election setting Nomination Day for next Wednesday (16 Jan). Polling day would be on 26 Jan.

Following the ““Palmer-Gate” incident, many opposition parties have claimed they will be sending candidates to contest Punggol East SMC if there is a by-election.

Here is my results prediction for a six-corner fight if all those who expressed interest proceed to contest:

What do you think?

It will be interesting to see how many of the opposition parties will really follow through to send a candidate on Nomination Day. Talk is cheap. Election deposit is S$16k.

TIME Person of the Year 2012 (Singapore edition) – The Winner is…

Earlier this month, I ran an informal poll for Alvinology.com readers to vote for who you think deserves the title for TIME Person of the Year 2012 (Singapore edition).

Note that this poll is not officially endorsed by TIME Inc.

The winner for 2011 was the Workers’ Party Aljunied GRC team. 

Who do  you think the winner for 2012 is?

I promised to disclose the poll results at 0000hrs on 1 January 2013.

Without further ado…

the winner is…




Cecilia Sue Siew Nang with 21% of the total votes:

Cecilia Sue Siew Nang - Person of the Year 2012 - Winner
Cecilia Sue Siew Nang – Person of the Year 2012 – Winner

Last minute addition, Michael Palmer did well too, coming in a close runner-up with 20% of the total votes:

Michael Palmer - Person for the Year 2012 runner-up
Michael Palmer – Person for the Year 2012 runner-up

The top two voted winners aptly round up a year of sexy news that hogged the news headlines throughout 2012.

Hopefully, we would see less of these in 2013.
