Yesterday, the first day of campaigning, she was at Paya Lebar MRT station by 7am to hand out NSP fliers to commuters. Onlookers snapped a few pictures and some asked to pose with her when she got on a west-bound train.
"I'm still coping with the loss of privacy. But I'm glad that what I've done has sparked off a discussion among Singaporeans about political ownership," she told The New Paper, which tagged along with her.
"I think my theatre studies training has helped me to be buay pai say (not shy in Hokkien)," she said with a laugh as she approached strangers.
She greeted most of them with a cheery, "Hi, have a good day from the NSP. Please vote for us."
At 10am, she rushed over to the Asian Civilisations Museum for an interview with Al-Jazeera, the Arab news network. Even the international media is interested in her.
Asked by Al-Jazeera if she was being ungrateful by joining the opposition, she said: "Yes, I've benefited from the system. But I'm not being ungrateful.
"I'm standing up for the people, for those who are still struggling in the system."
After the interview, Miss Seah squeezed in lunch with a teammate in a foodcourt in Paya Lebar before heading home to prepare for her first rally speech.
On a table in the living room was a bottle of chicken essence lovingly placed there by her mother, Madam Pat Lim, 49, who works in advertising.
