Singaporeans give their verdict on NSP candidate who is fashioning herself as Nicole Seah version 2.0

Seems like many still prefer Nicole Seah version 1.0.

White must be an unlucky colour for a young, budding politician.

This is because National Solidarity Party (NSP)'s new face Kevryn Lim, 26, has just provided Singaporeans with the first GE2015 viral moment.

Lim, who told TODAY on July 31 that she was inspired by former NSP member Nicole Seah to enter politics, has generated a buzz online for her youth and good looks.

Hence, expectations were sky-high when she conducted her first door-stop interview on transport issues.

Solidarity Party's new face Kevryn Lim, 26, hopes to campaign on education and transport issues such as transport costs and more bus and train services. She was speaking to the media outside NSP's headquarters where opposition parties have gathered to discuss strategy and plan to avoid three-cornered fights.

The video interview, which has garnered more than 163,000 views in one Monday evening, was probably conducted when all the media were bored.

The media were of course waiting for the representatives from all nine opposition parties to conclude their meeting to avoid potential three-cornered fights in the coming election.

But look at how all the media ran wild with her video interview instead:

While the rest of the media went crazy with Lim's interview, we noted that NSP decided to share another video from Straits Times instead.

adjourned to Thursday.

NSP has hoped to introduce a Nicole Seah 2015 in Lim, but they just provided us with a Tin Pei Ling 2011 moment.
