How YouTube PWND SDA Desmond Lim’s “First Online Rally”

How YouTube PWND SDA Desmond Lim’s “First Online Rally”

While the People’s Action Party, Workers’ Party and Reform Party candidates for the Punggol East by-election pitted their oratory skills against each other at physical political rallies, Singapore Democratic Alliance (SDA) candidate, Desmond Lim Bak Chuan chose the unconventional route of rolling out videos online. 

Kudos to Desmond for being so innovative.

The video was supposed to be online from 6.00pm today, but was only available on youtube over an hour late.

Nonetheless, good stuff is always worth the wait right?:

The video started promising with an eloquent Harminder Pal Singh giving an introduction to SDA and Desmond.

Then from 2:46 onwards, Desmond appears and attempts to speak in what seems like English to me.

Switch on the Google auto-caption from 2:46 to see how Youtube PWND Desmond Lim. I screen grabbed a few classics:



What's that......

What’s that……

I wish Desmond Lim and the SDA team all the best in their campaign to win the Punggol East by-election.
