I don't like President Tony Tan but it is shocking that the Prime Minister's wife will show him such disrespect by wearing sandals to his farewell ceremony. Is this event not a proper serious event?
You see all the other dignitaries wear formal clothes except for Ho Ching. Even her husband PM Lee wear formal and proper shoes. Why does she have this exemption to wear sandals to such serious events?
We are taught to show respect and maintain decorum in certain events, this is definitely one of them. Bad example we are setting for our younger Singaporeans. Next time let's all wear slippers for NS can?
