Chen Show Mao's first Meet-the-People session.

Chen Show Mao's first Meet-the-People session.

The void deck of Block 117, Hougang Avenue 1, is a long way from the Beijing corporate offices of law firm Davis Polk & Wardwell. But it's where Mr Chen Show Mao got down to work yesterday evening at his first Meet-the-People session. By 8pm, there were already 40 residents waiting to see him. About 30 curious onlookers and well-wishers were also present. The New Paper spoke to Mr Chen about the long journey he's taken to being an elected Member of Parliament - from being a top student in Singapore, to being a top lawyer in Beijing, and now, back home to serve his countrymen. More in The New Paper on Tuesday (May 24).
