MP TAN CHUAN-JIN: WHETHER U HAVE FLU OR NOT, PLS RESPECT FELLOW WORKERS

I popped by JEM to visit Mr Png Lye Heng, the deaf cleaner who was reprimanded publicly at a foodcourt last week, and management. He was in good spirits and gestured to me that he was no longer bothered by the incident. I also told him that I was impressed with his positive spirit, and that his act of magnanimity is something that we could all learn from. We (as in my colleague!) managed to communicate by penning questions in Chinese on a piece of paper, while he gestured with his replies. We can all still learn to treat Singaporeans with special needs and disabilities with more empathy. An attitude survey conducted by the NCSS Singapore showed that the public displayed social distances towards persons with sensory or physical impairment, as well as autism and intellectual impairment. More than one third of the public also said that they would not employ persons with disabilities if they were an employer. However, the survey also noted that with more frequent contact, the public's attitudes towards persons with disabilities could be improved. And this is why we've launched the Disability Awareness Campaign - hopefully, we will all learn to see persons with disabilities for who they are as individuals, and how they too can contribute to society, instead of the disability they have. This is a regrettable incident but let's hope that it has also lend focus on overcoming these mindsets. And for us all to be conscious as we interact with others. (Btw....whether you have flu or not, or if a person is disabled or not, one shouldn't have behaved in the way the woman did. Respect our fellow workers.)

POLICE REPORTS WERE LODGED AGAINST HUSBAND OF FOODCOURT SCREAMER FOR CHEATING PARENTS’ MONEY!

More than 10 years ago, police reports were lodged against the husband of this now infamous woman. He was then known as Steven Chong. Back then, I was a young naïve parent looking for a swim coach for my kids. I responded to an advertisement in the ST Classified Ads. I spoke with the wife regarding the terms and conditions for the swimming lessons. We found the fees reasonable and so went ahead to engaged him as the coach. As our circle of friends, colleagues and relatives also have children of similar age group, we recommended this coach to them after trying out a couple of lessons with them. I also came to know of other parents whose kids were under his coaching. Each time we asked to see his coaching licence, we were given some excuses until she finally showed me an expired one and said they had already renewed but yet to receive from Singapore Sports Council.
