Another PAP candidate comes under fire and he is Mr Shawn Huang Wei Zhong, former F-16 pilot from RSAF and a Director for Enterprise Development in Temasek International.
According to this Facebook post by Lin Leo, Mr Shawn Huang Wei Zhong was then the Parade Commander for NDP 2018.
Worse of the worse! When this fella went for one of his rehearsal of the day, one of my serviceman place a packet of food nicely on a table(which is meant for the participants), this fella not happy for being turn away initially by my serviceman, he took the food and THROW back onto our table infront of my 2 servicemen!
Actually, all NSmen know that in the parade square, the Parade Commander is really the biggest. Perhaps as a female, she might not know this fact.
The incident mentioned is still unverified at this moment. And so far this is the only negative comment for this candidate. We strongly believe this is a one-off incident when a hungry man is an angry man. That's about all.
Update 1 on 28 June 2020: Original poster has taken down her post above! As the poster does not stand by her encounter, we believe either the incident did not happen or it is a one-off incident.
Update 2 on 28 June 2020: Mr Shawn Huang Wei Zhong has clarified the matter on his Facebook. A social media post was brought to my attention, alleging an incident that occurred when I was NDP Parade Commander in 2018. I recall the details of that particular incident and wish to make some clarifications. It occurred during one of the rehearsals at the Floating Platform. After the afternoon rehearsal, I had gone to the rest area for lunch. However, I found that no lunch had been catered for our group. As the logistics control group was next to our rest area, and they were in control of most of the rations, I asked if I could be given a pack. Usually there would be rations left over and they would have to be disposed in the next 30mins or so. However, the WO in charge would not issue me a set of rations. I tried to reason it out with the WO that the rations would otherwise be disposed anyway. However, the WO insisted, and I decided that rather than pursuing it further I decided to leave the tent and went elsewhere to ask for a pack of food. I found another pack of ration that was leftover. After my lunch. I went back to the tent. And on the table, I found that there was now a pack of food. I told the WO that I no longer needed the ration and politely passed the ration back. This was witnessed by Encik Azmi, WO (Special Functions) and CWO Ng Siak Peng. To help future ration distributions I highlighted to them that we could practice some flexibility in the distribution of rations. They agreed. I did not pursue the matter further. When friends pointed out the post to me, I was surprised as I knew the WO who had posted it and felt that it was a misunderstanding. I tried to respond to her on the post so as to clarify matters but she has since removed her post. I wish her well and hope to be able to speak to her soon. My gratitude to many fellow serviceman who had posted messages of support.
