I sometimes sent and shared my ideas to the media. Zoe Tay and some of the media artistes might not exists in the media today, if I had not sent my suggestions and ideas to the then Singapore Broadcasting Corp.
Years ago I had sent my suggestions to Singapore Broadcasting Corp. (presently Mediacorp) , to set up a contest and that give generous incentives, to winners of acting contests to draw out the best talented people to come forward. Nowadays they widen the talents pool drawing contestants from overseas.
In my younger days, I read widely. I love to read about the life stories of great people. My hero were Thomas Edison whose inventions made the world a better place to live. Henry Ford for his mastering of the art of productions of cars & Florence Nightingale for her profound dedications to the sufferings and the sicks.
I had replied to our MP, as the MP had wrote to me for suggestions to bond the community when my wife got the PR.
I had replied to built a 50 storey building to house multi-functional activities people to socialise, to bond the community near MRT, as the MRT is in the central location, which drawn the most traffic .
My suggestions might had influenced the government, to allow the building of a 50 storey HDB with multi-facilities near Tanjong Pagar MRT station.
Long ago I had suggested making tourism as country main economic driver, now finally they made it a reality. As tourism industries are sustainable and recurring in long run. And we need to continue to come up with fresh ideas to draw the tourists.
Our manufacturing industries might had difficulties to complete with India and China cheap, educated and large labour pool. The Bahamas, Las Vegas, Macau with large part of their economy driven by tourism. They too do not have much resources.
As I was greatly inspired by the works and contributions of the Nobel Prize Winners to humanity. I suggested giving numerous smaller awards Now I saw schools, always displayed their awards outside the fence in their banners.
In those days computers is not widely uses so its difficult to record down all my ideas or I had contribute certain ideas, or some of my ideas were adopted. Now I can write in my blog if I had some good and inspiring ideas.
