S’poreans react to free SG50 note folders for every S’porean household

Posted on 30 September 2015

Three thoughts that must have went past your mind at some point.


Each Singaporean household is entitled to receive two SG50 note folders given away for free at the 108 Community Centres/Clubs (CCs) island-wide from Nov. 11 to 30 this year.

This is to make amends after Singapore’s first President Yusof Ishak’s name was misspelled twice as “Yusok Ishak” on the commemorative SG50 note packaging the first time round.

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:


sian-half-auntie “Because of some civil servant’s error, a lot of trees have to die and taxpayers’ money spent to make up for it.”
Jin Leow Lui, 45-year-old printing shop owner


sian-half-uncle “The government is just giving Singaporeans what they want: A chance to queue up for some useless thing again.”
Pai Twee, 62-year-old metal chain maker


happy-bird-girl “It would be really funny if they spot another typo on this new reprinted folders.”
Hong Kan, 18-year-old pen assembler
