What if Tin Pei Ling and Nicole Seah were sushi?

April 25, 2011 at 9:35 pm 26 comments

Election fever has gripped Singapore, and the candidates getting the most attention are Tin Pei Ling from the People’s Action Party and Nicole Seah from the National Solidarity Party.

I don’t know about you, but whenever I meet someone new, I wonder what they would be like if they were a sushi roll.

I gathered available information about the two candidates and then gave my interpretation to the sushi chefs for them to create an actual roll.  Isn’t it convenient to own a Japanese restaurant?

If you want to find out how these rolls taste; they’re available from now through May 7 at Standing Sushi Bar 8QSAM for 10 SGD each!

COMMENT CONTEST – submit your interpretation for how the above sushi rolls are like their namesake or come up with your own description of a Tin Pei Ling / Nicole Seah sushi roll!  Best comment (as judged by me) posted by May 7 wins a 25 SGD voucher to Standing Sushi Bar (be sure to leave your e-mail address for contact)

    Tin Pei Ling: So much rice, so little substance.
    Nicole Seah: Pink is the new white. Let’s rock and (sushi) roll!

    The Tin Pei Ling sushi ought to be a massive handroll and one normal sushi. SM goh and his free tag-along.

    Tin Pei Ling: The sushi can come free with every soft-shell crab handroll

    Nicole Seah: Love the pink interpretation!

    Why is TPL’s sushi greenish? She doesnt stand for any environmental issues.

  • 6. welovenicole  |  April 25, 2011 at 10:28 pm

    Nicole’s pretty in pink!

  • 7. vote for peiling!  |  April 25, 2011 at 10:32 pm

    Please keep the price of Tin Pei Ling’s sushi low. No price hikes after Tin Pei Ling spoke to stall owners.

  • 8. boliao  |  April 25, 2011 at 10:36 pm

    Why only limit to Nicole Seah and TPL? We want Vivian Bala vs Vincent Wijey too. And Wong Kan Seng fighting against Chiam See Tong.

  • 9. mas salamat  |  April 25, 2011 at 10:40 pm

    I support the Wong Kan Seng sushi. Make sure got lots of loose rice and loop holes!

  • 10. goodcleanfight  |  April 25, 2011 at 10:41 pm

    Please keep this sushi showdown a good clean fight.

  • 11. Ken Ho  |  April 25, 2011 at 10:44 pm

    Tin is octopus sushi… blur like sotong.. come my estate walk about, her staff introduced my name and she still can call me by another name….

    Nicole is like uni-sushi.. She can stink….

  • 12. Wong Can't Sing  |  April 25, 2011 at 10:44 pm

    Yeah, I like the Wong Kan Seng sushi idea!

  • 13. Toukarin  |  April 25, 2011 at 10:45 pm

    TPL sushi should be blue, white and red, with several of them made exactly the same way (buddy system + parrot talk), lots of rice and cheap ingredients, and costs $150.00 each.

    Nicole’s sushi should be just the way it is above (full of substance, with charisma and beauty), and reasonably priced at $15.

  • 14. Michael  |  April 25, 2011 at 10:45 pm

    TPL roll is all starchy white with expensive stuffings.

    Nicole Seah roll is filled with goodness with a dusting of pink sweetness.

  • 15. Moulmein Resident  |  April 25, 2011 at 10:48 pm

    How about a Tuck Yew roll? It can be a pickled ginger roll, cos that will certainly leave a sour taste in one’s mouth.

  • 16. M&M  |  April 25, 2011 at 10:49 pm

    Make the right choice. Dont forget it affects your children and grandchildren

  • 17. Gate5  |  April 25, 2011 at 10:51 pm

    Tin Pei Lin : I don’t know what to say roll
    Nicole Seah : Little Nonya Roll

  • 18. TPL yay  |  April 25, 2011 at 10:56 pm

    Tin Pei Ling’s roll stands tall because she’s resilient!

    it’s not about winning contest. How will this improve the future of japanese food?

  • 21. Katie spadey  |  April 26, 2011 at 1:31 am

    Tin pei ling’s sushi is green like her Kate spade box. See how her the sushi also sticks out to show the kawaii sign. Oishi! Oishi

  • 22. abalone  |  April 27, 2011 at 2:47 pm

    Looks can be deceiving, so which sushi tastes better?
    Maybe our taste buds could control our brain on Voting Day.

  • 23. mate mat  |  May 5, 2011 at 1:07 am

    TPL sushi needs lots of brain food in them as stuffing, it should be sold at Universal Studios in S’pore so that she can kill 2 birds with 1 stone.
    Nicole’s sushi is powerpacked to the max in wisdom, understanding, humbleness, humility, friendly, listening ear. whoever eats it will be like her and we certainly needs more Nicoles’ in our midst, especially in parliament.

  • 24. abalone  |  May 5, 2011 at 2:44 pm

    Why are views of TPL & Nicole Seah at two extremes? I don’t get it.

  • 25. Orca  |  May 6, 2011 at 9:20 am

    I hope the TPL role is tasty because, with a little luck, that will be the only thing to remember her by come May 8.
