When Jack went up the hill

Summary:Like many powerful men before him, Jack Neo, once Singapore's most famous cross-dresser became Singapore's most famous adulterer.While many facets of public comment have surfaced--whether the acts were moral, whether there was undue pressure, the loyal response of the faithful wife, the defence of the friends and the daringness of the women involved--the same point intrigues me as with the cases of Hugh, Tiger, Kobe and Terry.

Like many powerful men before him, Jack Neo, once Singapore's most famous cross-dresser became Singapore's most famous adulterer.

While many facets of public comment have surfaced--whether the acts were moral, whether there was undue pressure, the loyal response of the faithful wife, the defence of the friends and the daringness of the women involved--the same point intrigues me as with the cases of Hugh, Tiger, Kobe and Terry. Just what were these men thinking about? Did they ever expect they were going to get away with it?

I remember my Sunday school teacher telling me that lying is a slippery slope. You start with one small lie and you make another one to cover the initial one before having to descend into other lies, and even worse, sins.

I take the same attitude with people going to court--start with one lie and you then have to make more lies before everything comes crumbling down in an awful mess.

So before you go up the hill, whatever it may be, just remind yourself you will never be able to get away with it. Don't fall down and break your crown.
