Yakult and the Case of Syonan-to

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… 

CNA

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?

Ng Chee Meng and the case of the cleaner comic

Oh my, Education Minister, what values were you trying to highlight?

Oh by the way, here’s the actual comic.

If only netizens had read his Facebook blurb carefully, and scrolled to view the bottom half of the comic.

Sometimes no matter what you say, if people don’t get the full context, just move on, or just be more specific.

So if you think telling children they will become a cleaner is inculcating bad values, say so lah!

Chan Chun Sing and the case of Madam President

In what is being termed as a Freudian slip, Kee Chiu Chan Chun Sing addressed Speaker Halimah Yacob as “Madam President”.

Imagine LHL saying: Hello, it’s “Madam Speaker”!! WTF are you doing?

But I wouldn’t be surprised if Kee Chiu’s rooting for Halimah, after all both are from the NTUC yes?

But I wouldn’t go so far as to conclude she’ll be President, just look at what happened to the last person to be (almost) called Madam President.

Both Hillary and Halimah have the support of the unions behind them, and could be the first female presidents.

This will only happen IF Halimah even makes the cutoff of managing an organisation worth at least half a freaking billion dollars in shareholders capital).

Was it a slip of the tongue, or a deliberate inception?

Imagine, with just 2 words (or 1 word since it’s same word “President”), Kee Chiu single-handedly created an online storm AND marked Halimah as first to come to your mind when thinking of a potential Malay Presidential candidate.

Now that’s some freaking serious productive shit.
