Kengho Yap aka UncleYap: Isolation is not an issue.



Such a bravado. From such a nobody. (He's quite prolific, though, as a blogger.)

And yes, this is the same person to which the 2nd word 'stupid' in "Mas Selamat Kastari is not stupid, stupid!" refers to.

For someone who continues to advocate the importance of working for as long as a person can, Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew said the worst punishment one can give a person is the isolation ward. The person, he said, would get hallucinations.

Sharing anecdotes about his personal life and religious beliefs in an interview with the New York Times and the International Herald Tribune, Mr Lee said that without interaction with people, a person is isolated.

Mr Lee keeps his mind alive with constant stimulus as he keeps himself up to date. For example, he said, he goes to China once a year at least to meet Chinese leaders.

And he will be off to Moscow, Kiev and Paris on 15 September. Mr Lee said: "(In) Paris, I am on the TOTAL Advisory Board together with Joe Nye and a few others. They want a presentation on China's strengths and weaknesses.

"It's not just my impressionistic view of China but one that has to be backed by facts and figures. So my team works out the facts and figures, and I check to see if they tally with my impressions. But it's a constant stimulus to keep alive and up-to-date. If I stop it, it's downhill."

The Minister Mentor also stresses the need to keep fit and exercise. For himself, he cycles and swims every day.

From Channel NewsAsia, "Worst punishment for a person is to be put in isolation ward: MM Lee".

PS. If you're interested, there are indeed many causes of hallucinations. Reading a ridiculous post of UncleYap is definitely one of them!
