Authorities not sure what went right.

Authorities still grappling for answers as to why the Little India riot occurred in December three years ago were left even more puzzled as watering hole Clarke Quay did not experience a similar incident the previous year, last year and this year.

This despite Clarke Quay having all the elements there at one place to start the most proper and epic riot.

An official spokesperson, Qu Da Jia, said: “All the contributing factors present in Little India three Decembers ago have been similarly available in Clarke Quay throughout the past three years: People, alcohol and dustbins for tossing.”

“But nothing happened.”

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who can see things clearly for what they are if they are sober enough, have also expressed their amazement that Clarke Quay was not ground zero given that there are more drunks there and alcohol is way overpriced.

Qu Pia Zui, a local said: “A bottle of beer for S$14? I’m surprised no one has started a fight over that yet.”

However, the lack of riots at Clarke Quay has been shown to be a result of expensive alcohol possessing certain anti-rioting elements.

A Singaporean scientist, Dr Lim Kar Tor had discovered that the two main anti-rioting properties present in expensive alcohol are called “wealth” and “opportunity”, which make a difference in the reactions of drinkers.

Dr Lim explained then: “You can find these properties called ‘wealth’ and ‘opportunity’ only in expensive alcohol. Once you’ve consumed enough of it, you wouldn’t be upset with your lot in life.”

However, the lack of riots at Clarke Quay has been shown to be a result of expensive alcohol possessing certain anti-rioting elements.

A Singaporean scientist, Dr Lim Kar Tor had discovered earlier in March last year that the two main anti-rioting properties present in expensive alcohol are called “wealth” and “opportunity”, which make a difference in the reactions of drinkers.

Dr Lim explained then: “You can find these properties called ‘wealth’ and ‘opportunity’ only in expensive alcohol. Once you’ve consumed enough of it, you wouldn’t be upset with your lot in life.”

 

 

 

 

 











Alcohol ban sees Clarke Quay’s Read Bridge attracting students looking for conducive quiet place to study

Alcohol ban sees Clarke Quay’s Read Bridge attracting students looking for conducive quiet place to study

People who enjoy meditating also go there now.

Students from all walks of life, who like to go outside of their house to study because studying in the comforts of one’s own home is too mainstream, said they have found a new study haven in Clarke Quay.

This after Singapore’s alcohol ban came into force on April 1, 2015, where drinking in public is banned from 10.30pm to 7am, and suddenly, Clarke Quay has become very quiet.

One student Ai Tak Chek, said: “The authorities have done a great job opening up Clarke Quay to different users. It used to be all party and revelry, but now students and people who enjoy meditating come here as it is quiet and conducive for concentrating.”

“What’s more Read Bridge, which was filled with party-goers, has finally lived up to it’s name: It is now a library-like place, quiet and peaceful.”

Another student, said more can be done in Singapore to turn other party areas into centres for cerebral concentration: “I would really love to see Zouk being turned into a library. That would allow those who enjoy reading to have a place to read at night.”

“When that is done, maybe some time at the end of this year, St James Power Station can be turned into a library.”

 

No alcohol, no cry:
