The making of a documentary on the founder of Noah's Ark was held at the 2009 AVA Responsible Pet Ownership Roadshow at the Anchorvale Community Centre on Sunday, Nov 29, 2009.

I attended the roadshow as I was invited by the AVA. I wanted to be updated on animal activism in Singapore and so I took some time off from my Sunday surgery to attend the show.

This year, the HDB (Housing & Development Board) had taken part in the roadshow. This was good as 80% of the population lives in HDB. It is a pity that the SVA (Singapore Veterinary Association) does not participate.

I was not keen to be interviewed to talk about Mr Raymund Wee although I knew him for over 30 years. Sometimes the media quotes me out of context or distort the interview and this is very common. Therefore, I disappeared when Ms Lynda Goh of Noah's Ark asked me. Since she persisted for a second time, I obliged. The movie maker, Mr Julian Siau of Orbital Media Productions agreed he would ask me 2 questions about Mr Wee to beef up his content. "All the persons I had interviewed knows Mr Wee for around the last 2 years," he said to me. I obliged Ms Lynda Goh who is an excellent PR person and to help the homeless animals in Noah's Ark.

However, Mr Siau he did not keep his word and asked too many questions. I wonder how this documentary would turn out.  It is hard to trust news makers as they will write or make news from clipped stories, sometimes out of context.
