"In this day and age, technology has become a necessity of our daily lives. That said, minister Ong emphasizes that we should not neglect the importance of forging interpersonal relationships and not lose the ‘human touch’. He also mentioned that technology is there to aid us in being a smart nation to improve our lives with greater convenience. Hence we should utilise technology to our benefit and not let technology dictate our lives." - Jeremy
