He was reminded of it because there is very small space on the train.
This after they said he looked like he was clearly titillated by the thought of Senior Minister of State Josephine Teo’s, “You need a very small space to have sex” comment, as he stood there in the train carriage wrapped up deep in his own world in claustrophobic conditions.
One commuter, Shuo Gan, said: “I felt violated just looking at someone who was thinking like that.”
“He must have been thinking to himself, ‘Mmm, there is really not much space on the MRT.”
“One only needs a very small space. Mmm.”
However, other locals said they are heartened by the sight of the transport minister riding the MRT with the plebeians.
Shen Jing Pin, another local, said: “It’s great he finally gets to experience how ridiculous his colleague Josephine Teo’s comment sounds.”
