S’poreans react to Jalan Besar GRC candidate Yaacob Ibrahim greeting commuters on SBS bus

Posted on 07 September 2015

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


PAP Jalan Besar GRC candidate Yaacob Ibrahim greeted commuters on SBS bus service 140 as it looped the Kallang Bahru area.

This is part of his General Election 2015 campaign.

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:


sian-half-auntie “He taking public transport is a once every 50 years event.”
Zhuo Ba Shi, 42-year-old tire seller


sian-half-uncle “I guess he is signalling he wants to be the next transport minister.”
Tui Xiu, 62-year-old retiree


happy-bird-girl “Buses in the morning are already crowded enough without an extra person taking up precious space.”
Leow Wee, 17-year-old student
