Sengkang GRC Singapore General Election 2020!

Sengkang GRC is a new GRC for Singapore Election 2020. We have been under Sengkang West SMC all along (under Dr Lam Pin Min).

SengkangBabies have been in Sengkang since 2000 🙂

From a new couple, we expanded our family to four kids. Many families have also settled in Sengkang and the whole town literally bloomed!

We have been here before there was a MRT, when there were so many green fields for kite flying. Now we have MRT, Shopping Malls and even a Hospital.

Our “No 1” will be voting in GE2025! How time flies.

Back to SG Election 2020. From the sample count, it seems like Workers Party has scored another GRC! 53% against PAP’s 47%

We could hear so many screams and claps at 1am! Social Media was ablaze at Sengkang Residents’ votes! (Mothership link)

If the results hold (or even if results turn out otherwise), Sengkang residents are saying #NoBlankCheque

If PAP team is really voted out, Sengkang GRC would be another case of George Yeo (Aljunied 2011). Not sure about the others in team PAP Sengkang, but Dr Lam Pin Min has put in a lot of effort for Sengkang 🙁

Be it Workers Party or PAP, SengkangBabies vote for Singapore First!

More election results can be found on Mothership website.
(West Coast, East Coast and Aljunied are the other sites facing strong competition.)

Previous blog about Sengkang and Elections here, here and our HDB story.

*Update 0336. Final count for Sengkang GRC

Total – 120,166 electors
PAP – 55,214
Workers Party – 60,136

The Workers Party have secured Sengkang GRC and score an upset!
Sengkang Residents have taken a leap of faith by voting for Workers Party.

Workers Party now holds two GRC (Aljunied and Sengkang GRC) and a SMC (Hougang). They are the strongest opposition in Singapore, and will be sending 10 members into Parliament.

More hardwork lies ahead, we hope Workers Party will not let Sengkang residents down!

Sengkang Babies’ HDB story

Today, we will talk about SengkangBabies’ HDB (Housing Development Board) Story. It is quite obvious SengkangBabies call Sengkang home (家) right 🙂

If we have a timeline for Sengkang’s history, it would look something like this.

1999 – we got the key to our new house

2000/2001 – ROM and Wedding ceremony

2003/2005/2007/2009 – Every two year, one baby pop out 🙂

2009 – SengkangBabies blog was born together with Boon Xin, our princess.

The Beginning

A house is not a home.
We started with a dream.
We wanted to build our future together.

As we sketch out our masterplan, colours, material, designs symbolise our ideal home (家). As the months went by, we see our Hall, Kitchen and rooms taking shape.

We are Proud owners.

As we renovate our house, Sengkang is also undergoing upgrading. Since we move in a decade ago, Compasspoint, MRT 2003, integrated interchange, and wet market slowly came on board.

Maybe the policy makers had intentionally left out the cinemas and shopping centers.
When couples are lonely, Sengkang experience a small baby boom :p

New Family

This is our HDB story.
We have build up our 5-room nest over the last decade.
Time flies !

Other than a slightly more messy nest, no thanks to the kids, you can expect to hear laughter (most likely from kids) and occasionally screams from yours truly and Mummy.

Either way, our home is always lively, never quiet.
No points for guessing who are the parent’s little nemesis haha 🙂

Our Neighbourhood

We love Sengkang so much, we named our blog “SengkangBabies 盛港宝宝” 🙂
Sengkang (and Punggol) neighbourhood is our playground, our home, our childhood.

What about the kids? Do they love their home, neighbours, school and friends? We have provided a warm loving home for our kids, and we are glad the siblings are bonding well.

Video : Boon Yee and Boon Xin sharing their umbrella, sweet 🙂

We ask our children to draw their home. Some draw HDB, while others prefer bungalows. We can see cartoons of our family and the “imaginary” pet 🙂

With our HDB flat, Mummy and Daddy’s Dream of a Happy Family has been realised.
