More people in S’pore take part in viral Pang Sai Challenge

Posted on 07 September 2014

If you refuse to do something, just pang sai.



More and more people in Singapore are taking part in the viral Pang Sai Challenge, where participants pang sai on the spot to get out of doing something they refuse to do.

This viral Pang Sai Challenge is similar in scope to the Ice Bucket Challenge, where participants dump a bucket of ice water over their heads to avoid donating to charity.

Zhuo Sheng Yi, a Singaporean, said: “I was approached by a financial consultant on the street to do a survey. I refused, but he was quite persistent, saying it is only three questions and will only take two minutes. So, I just pang sai on the spot.”

“He left me alone after that.”

Another local, Tun Xia Lai, said he has personally taken the Pang Sai Challenge a few times: “If you get approached by people asking for donations and you don’t want to make a donation, you must pang sai on the spot. That’s the rule.”

“Usually once you pang sai on the spot, everyone will leave you alone. Donation tin flag sellers, insurance agents asking you to fill in survey forms, credit card salespersons and Mormons.”

“All of them will just walk away from you.”
