Singapore braces itself for the upcoming Presidential Election on 27 August 2011. In the running are 4 Tans – 2 Dr Tans and 2 Mr Tans.
Dr Tony Tan Keng Yam, Dr Tan Cheng Bock, Mr Tan Kin Lian, Mr Tan Jee Say. So, obviously, our next Elected President will be a Tan.
Interestingly, I came across this video of another “Tan”, an intelligent one that wows the Web by showing human-like behaviour. In the video, the clever orang utan dips a towel into the pond, wrings it out and then wipes its face and hands to cool down in the 30°C heat. I must say, this orang utan in Tokyo’s Tama Zoo does show some gracefulness and humility rarely seen even in normal human beings!
