WHY ANTON CASEY SHOULDN’T BE THE ONE LEAVING SINGAPORE

A few days ago, General Secretary of the Singapore Kindness Movement Mr William Wan wrote an article for The Straits Times, imploring Singaporeans to show some empathy towards Anton Casey, the Briton who had posted disparaging remarks about our public transport system online. Some commenters agreed with Mr Wan, and praised him for his outlook, while others responded with indignation, claiming he wasn’t a “true blue Singaporean” because he had “sided” with Casey.

Better transport before higher fares

Public transport companies should have been giving commuters reliable, quality service because we take buses and trains daily and have been paying the fares all these years. There must be thorough investigation and proper explanation of the breakdowns to assure commuters that these faults will not recur. With Singapore’s growing population, public transport must be more reliable. The Government and the operators should have had measurable plans in place before the fare hike, to cope with the demands in the transport sector and ensure that these problems were addressed first.

GILBERT GOH: THIS IS THE FIRST EVENT WHERE WE EXPERIENCED ACTIVE POLICE INTERVENTION

When the idea to burn an effigy was botched, there was the expected resistance from the group as no one has done it before and the usual question was - is it legal? I couldn't find anything on effigy burning on the internet here and to me if there is no law against it there is this grey area that we could breach. No one in our five decades of PAP's rule has ever burn an effigy in Singapore before! Of course, burning an effigy in Singapore is a serious business especially when you can still be fined for drinking water in our modern sparkling clean trains. So we approached this with alot of caution and apprehension.

DEAR SINGAPORE KINDNESS MOVEMENT, GO F**K YOURSELF

I am really not sure where on earth this William Wan is from. Maybe he is from Never Never Land perhaps. Maybe he has a daily diet made up entirely of milk and honey. Maybe he survives in Singapore on nothing but fresh air and sunshine. Maybe he travels on a Yellow Brick Road to work and lives in a Gingerbread house. Or maybe he is just your typical pacifist brown nosed bootlicker who’s BFF is chief government propagandist and Straits times editor Warren Fernandez.

Temple Talk at Mun San Fook Tuck Chee, Singapore

Mun San Fook Tuck Chee 萬山福德祠 is one of the few Cantonese temples left and could well be one of the oldest in Singapore. Bro Yik Han, our tour leader had been researching into this temple and written a book on this temple together with his friend. Many thanks to Takako-san who brought along the book, members of the group today were able to view the pictures, especially of the statues that were a little too difficult to view inside the temple under the dim lighting condition.
