ACTIVE CITIZENRY – Giving A Ray of Hope for the ‘voiceless’
Raymond’s future book- Coming your way in 2016! Author: Raymond Anthony Fernando


Being active citizens means getting involved in the well-being of the country by working with the government of the day to find solutions to problems that may surface now and then. As the stress of daily living takes its toll on many people here in Singapore, there have been a lot of social issues that has been reported in the local press. Issues, which we, as citizens, can play a part in resolving.

Active citizenship can be as small as campaigns to raise awareness of those who are marginalised in society or it can be as big as educating young people about the democratic values, skills and participation

The government cannot solve all problems, but as active citizens on the ground, we must learn to feel for one another and where there are areas for improvement, we must not be afraid to offer suggestions and ideas that can make our country the best home to live, work and play in.

For me, the media has been a strong partner in my raising a lot of awareness of mental health issues, securing the much-needed support for our senior citizens, the elderly sick and others related issues.

In this book, ACTIVE CITIZENRY: Giving A Ray of Hope for the ‘voiceless’, I highlight the numerous social issues which I am very passionate about and have raised through the media and other platforms. From here, I offer solutions to how improvements can be made so that Singapore can become a truly inclusive society.

This book will be out in 2016 OR earlier. Only 50 -100 copies will be printed.

The book cost $20. My 29th book.

“Doing the Best I Can" - Author: Raymond Anthony Fernando

‘Being the best I can be – that has always been the life motto of Caregiver Extraordinary Raymond Anthony Fernando, a leading advocate for the mentally ill here in Singapore. Raymond fervently believes in giving his best to improve the lives of everyone, whether it is going out of his way to improve and build his company’s image through unique ideas and creativity or being the nagging voice to speak out passionately for those who are marginalised from society.

During his 31-year career with a local broadcasting station, Raymond received more than 15 commendations and awards for good suggestions that have made improvements to work procedures and raised the image of the company. Raymond has also played a role in nation building, by putting forward various proposals to the Government; examples of which include introducing a role model scheme for both maids and their employers, placing captions during the TV news to benefit the hearing impaired and building halfway houses for psychiatric patients – to name a few.

With this mindset for change, Raymond continuously seeks to build a better tomorrow for the mentally ill and their caregivers by raising the plight of these citizens through the Forum Pages of the local newspapers, going on national television and radio to speak earnestly about the challenges psychiatric patients and their caregivers face in their lonely lives, and volunteering his services with several mental health providers.


In this book, “Doing the best I can” Raymond presents his fruitful days in radio and television and then leads readers through his advocacy journey where positive changes have benefited the mentally ill, their caregivers and the elderly. Through this book, Raymond hopes to motivate and inspire people to give their very best so that their actions will spill over and have a positive effect on many.

“A Mother Like No Other” - Author: Raymond Anthony Fernando

No matter how many times, we as children hurt our mothers; they will always find it in their hearts to forgive us. That’s a mother’s unconditional love, and that’s the outstanding trait of Mrs Pearl Fernando – the author’s mother.

Mrs Fernando used to be a most energetic, chatty and bubbly woman. And she could whip up a meal in a matter of minutes, and cook the finest cuisine that was fit for a king. She was also always very caring towards the poor. 90-year-old Mrs Fernando now speaks slowly and often repeats herself for she is grappling with ageing issues that includes Parkinson’s disease. She gave unconditional love to all her children and to anyone who was in dire need of care.

During the 60s and 70s, the author’s parents stressed the importance of education to their children so as to better one’s life. In doing so, Mrs Fernando made lots of sacrifices, including skipping her meals when her husband lost his job. Despite facing adversities in her difficult life, she had a strong will, treated everyone equally and wasn't afraid to fight for her rights.

As a fitting tribute to his mother, Raymond Anthony Fernando reminisces about his mother’s undying love for her six children in her early years, her relatives and friends who knew her from her Gloucester Road days – and then fast forwards to her current state of affairs as she spends her twilight years in a Catholic Nursing Home. This book, “A mother, like no other” is the sequel to the author’s earlier book – “My mother’s eyes.”

Footnote: Only 100 copies of this book have been printed, and all copies have been sold out. The book cost $22, but a reprint of this novel will be carried out if there is a big demand for it.

“THOSE WERE THE DAYS” - Author: Doris Lau Siew Lang & Raymond Anthony Fernando

Sold Out !
Do you remember what life was like in the early years - 60s and 70s when the kampung spirit was very much alive? When sharing a plate of white rice and Ikan Bilis Sambal with neighbours just came naturally? When there was no such thing as the internet, Facebook or handphones and communication was in fact much better? During those early years, most of the population were living in wooden huts. Kite flying, burning fire crackers during the Lunar New Year, collecting water from wells, rearing chickens and ducks and growing vegetables on farms to sell at the market was part and parcel of everyday life in the villages. Strangely people were much healthier living in kampongs as life moved at a much slower pace than it is today.

In this nostalgic book, “Those were the days,” the authors - husband and wife team, Raymond and Doris- both prolific Catholic writers, bring you down memory lane as they share their growing up years in Lorong Napiri and Kim Keat Avenue.

“My Mother's Eyes” - Author: Raymond Anthony Fernando

We all know the importance of a mother’s love and care. Such virtues are crucial in the upbringing of her children. Is there scientific importance in nurturing a child through a mother’s love? And are there mental health benefits to a mom’s love? Experts all give a resounding “yes” to this. In most cases, it is the mother who is the primary caregiver, and how she loves her children greatly affects their lives.

Whenever I hear the hit song by Russ Hamilton, “My mother’s eyes”, I can’t help but reminisce about my dear mother. Indeed, the lyrics to this golden oldie bear an important message – that my mother’s guidance has helped me and my siblings to become useful and caring citizens. Mom taught us how to feel for the less fortunate in society and above all, she taught me the power of resilience. Resilient people, like my mother, have problems like everyone does, but somehow they always manage to bounce back. And that’s exactly what my mother taught me - to bounce back during periods of uncertainty and challenges.

In this novel, “MY MOTHER’S EYES”, I rewind the clock to my growing up years in Kim Keat Avenue where my parents brought us up, to my national service days, my adult years and after I got married to the woman who has changed my life- dramatically, through mom’s on-going support, love and care. In short, this book is a fitting tribute to my beloved mother, Mrs Pearl Fernando.

“Understanding and managing mental illnesses in an effective way” - Author: Raymond Anthony Fernando

With mounting academic and work pressures in a very competitive environment, many people, including Singaporeans are finding it difficult to cope. Added to this, there are relationships problems that have caused anxiety, stress and poor coping skills resulting in many people falling into depression and other types of mental illnesses such as schizophrenia and bipolar. Although many Singaporeans suffer from mental illnesses, a large number do not seek help because of the social stigma that is attached to mental illness.

“The Silent Listener” - Author: Raymond Anthony Fernando

More than 20 years ago, I came across these inspiring words that were placed on the wall of one of my classmate’s home: “Christ is the head of this house, The unseen guest at every meal, The silent listener to every conversation.” Somehow these words left an inedible mark on me. I kept thinking about these words as I journeyed through enormous pain and suffering in caring for my wife who is not in the pink of health. Many times, I questioned God’s love. Does He really watch over us? Does He really care? I had my doubts about God’s love at first. I even gave up on my Catholic faith for 15 years because I felt God had abandoned me. But I was so wrong.

Anyone can be patient and kind when everything is going his way. But the real test comes when things aren't going well. Patience displayed in the face of suffering is an altogether different quality than patience displayed when we're at our ease.

Sometimes the Lord is testing our faith and I’ve come to realise that God is always there for us – not only keeping us in check, but also taking care of us. When we are overwhelmed with sickness and suffering, we must not allow our faith to fall apart.

In this book, “The Silent Listener” there are true testimonies of how God watches over us all the time and He will be there to carry us when we have fallen by the wayside. And most certainly God does not abandon his children.
