As tradition in the passing of noteworthy luminaries, let us now take a minute to remember the deeds past and ill-conceived of the once shadowy character that was Wayang Party.
Front page news greeted the reader to the revelation of the truth identity behind the Temasek Review blog and the now defunct Wayang Party Blog. A titian in his time, the webmaster that went by many names is now revealed to be Dr Joseph Ong Chor Teck. Yes boys and girls, a doctor.
Once we thought the TR man to be a ghost, a figment of our imagination. Never did we expect we could get an appointment with him at Healthway Medical Clinic, Blk 118 Rivervale Drive #02-17 Rivervale Plaza. In fact if you were ever so lucky, you might have already met him in person. Yes, perhaps he already had the pleasure of examining your wife or children. Perhaps I will pay him a visit tomorrow.
In honour of the man, I have prepared a quick list of persons or organizations he may wish to apologise to at rapid speed. As a doctor, I assume he would be too busy to remember them himself. My memory may be waning so this is by no means a complete list:
1) Workers’ Party – the Wayang Party Blog owes its origins to mysterious “wayang party” fliers outside the WP 50th anniversary dinner. The press did an email interview with the site, only for the owner to deny involvement. Perhaps the Malay boys he had paid to put up the fliers will now have a name to go with his face.
2) SPH – TR has accused SPH and its blogger Geoffrey Pereira for grabbing contents of his site and initiating a DOS attack on it.
3) Remy Choo – Wayang Party informant exposes TOC then editor Remy Choo’s links to the PAP and begins inserting Trojan horses into the group
4) Kent Ridge Common – TR co-ops KRC writer Kelvin Teo and attempts to steal its intellectual property.
5) Teo Ho Pin – Wayang Party harasses Northwest CDC and alleges that staff there received 8 months bonuses
6) Foyce Le Xuan – TR ‘writer’ claims possession of sex tape between Foyce and Jack Neo.
7) YPAP – TR launches personal attacks against YPAP member Jack Lin and reveals his homosexual inclinations. TR also persistently attack YPAP leader Sinha Shekhar and attempts to get HDB to investigate him for illegal renting of HDB flat.
I’m sure there are many more but these are those that I can remember offhand. Naturally I expect some issues like the anti-pap fliers in Sengkang to be linked back to TR. Can you smell sedition?
One things for certain though, unlike Mr Toastbox, his identity is known to all. So take a bow Eugene Yeo, Jeremy Yau, Fang Zhi Yuan, Molina Han, ‘Correspondents’, Admin….whateva you wanna call yourself….. your curtain has drawn. In some sort of poetic tragedy, the wayang kulit by Dr Joseph Ong Chor Teck comes to an abrupt end.
