They are searching for answers together.
Singaporeans from all walks of life, who have a conspiratorial bent, are stroking their chins and furrowing their brows as they think of the possible reasons why Bukit Batok SMC PAP MP David Ong suddenly resigned
from parliament and party.
One Singaporean Mang Guo, questioned if this has anything to do with the fact that David Ong might love eating mangoes: “Hmmm makes you really wonder if David Ong likes to eat mangoes, too?”
“I wonder how many mangoes did he eat or has he eaten?”
“Was the mangoes he loved to eat plump or shrivelled? Was it the juicy juicy kind?”
“Or maybe he likes them particularly sweet? Or a bit sour?”
“Or those that are not that ripe?”
At press time, fruit sellers in Singapore say they are expecting more mangoes to be sold these few days due to a renewed interest in this issue.

No one could focus on the words that were coming out of his mouth.
David Ong, PAP’s MP for Jurong GRC, has unwittingly become the centre of attention in the latest parliamentary population debate for one glaring reason.
Argh! My eyes! *stubs toe on sofa*
The spotlight (pun intended) was shone on him after a video featuring the Parliament highlights surrounding the ongoing debate on the White Paper on Population was posted on YouTube.
This segment was originally shown on Channel 5.
This caused many on YouTube to exclusively comment on his head, causing intelligent debate about the White Paper on Population to be derailed.
The situation was made worse as Channel 5’s HD broadcast accentuated the reflective brightness of the glare.
There are no known reports of seizures as a result of this broadcast, although members of the public have been advised to put on shades, even as some have already formally written to Parliament requesting they dim the lights.
Overnight, though, complaints of astigmatism have increased 5000%.
