In an attempt to portray himself as a loving and caring husband, PAP candidate for Hougang Desmond Choo revealed his intimate moments with his wife to the media.
Speaking to reporters at the Nomination Center, Mr Choo stressed that his wife’s support is essential to this campaign, adding that he and his wife share a kiss every morning and that has still not changed.
Mr Choo married his civil servant wife in July last year.
“Her kiss keeps me going throughout the day. Though she has to go to work, I know she will always be with me and ready to help me out via whatsapp and sms. She has a way of delivering sweet messages to me” he said.
When asked about his opponent, Workers Party candidate Mr Png Eng Huat, Mr Choo said they are on good terms and have spoken earlier, promising each other that they will sit down to chit chat over coffee regardless of how the results turn out.
The current deputy director of NTUC’s youth development unit believes they will become “fast friends”.
“At the end of the day, it’s about two passionate people fighting for the (good) of Hougang residents”.
The seat of Hougang fell vacant after its former WP MP Yaw Shin Leong was sacked by the party for his failure to address swirling rumors around his alleged extramarital affairs with multiple married women, including two key female leaders of the party who contest in the General Election last year.
Many political pundits such as Derek Da Cunha and Eugene Tan have written off the chances of Mr Desmond Choo, with Yahoo News proclaiming an ‘easy victory’ for Mr Png Eng Huat even before a single vote is counted.
