S’poreans react to China returning underwater drone to US within a week

Posted on 20 December 2016

Three thoughts you must have had.


China has returned an underwater drone to the United States within a week it was taken from the South China Sea, after both countries engaged in friendly talks.

A Chinese naval ship took the drone that uses unclassified, commercially available technology to collect oceanographic data, on Thursday about 50 nautical miles northwest of Subic Bay in the Philippines.

By the following Tuesday, the drone was returned to its rightful owner.

China seized nine Terrex Infantry Carrier Vehicles from Singapore on Nov. 23, 2016, and has not returned them yet.

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:


sian-half-auntie “At least we got to say ‘the US kenna Terrexed’ for a few days. Also shiok.”
Qiong Gong, 42-year-old teacher


sian-half-uncle “Finally Singapore gets a taste of its own authoritarian medicine.”
Jiak Yo, 66-year-old retired surgeon


happy-bird-girl “China may take away our tanks, but they may never take away my Taobao items.”
Mai Dong Xi, 17-year-old salesgirl

Wang Pei can be considered a new citizen of Singapore. She has been here all her life, just that her environment's changed beyond recognition.
