Aiyoh… You government peeps, how can you name a gallery after Singapore’s cursed past as a spoils of war?
It reeks of victim-shaming and hypocrisy, especially since Singapore also kaopeh when Indonesia named their warship after two marines who bombed MacDonald House in Singapore.
After such a shitty week of trees falling, signboards crashing, S&CC price increase, PAP childcare teacher elbowing, and simmering public anger over dead birds, then Syonan Gallery…
You cannot buy good PR, but so easy to get bad PR.
The goodwill over your HPB kungfu CNY is completely spent aye!
Lucky you got a Minister Yakult to say sorry and rename the gallery, or you can say goodbye to 70%.
Can say sorry to rising S&CC too?
