Changi Airport to be renamed Subramanian Shanmuganathan Airport in honour of heroic foreign worker

He is officially the only person in Singapore to have done a pull-up to save a life.

Subramanian-Shanmuganathan-Airport

Singapore is set to rename Changi Airport as Subramanian Shanmuganathan Airport in honour of the heroic foreign worker who did a pull-up to save a toddler’s life.

The foreign worker was caught on camera effortlessly hauling himself up onto a second floor ledge to assist a small child who was dangling from a railing outside of the HDB flat in distress.

Singaporeans from all walks of life who have never realised the importance of pull-ups even though Singaporean men used to do it all the time as part of their annual IPPT tests, said having the airport named after Subramanian Shanmuganathan befits the man’s contribution to Singapore, which is unique and something even locals have not been able to do.

La Shan Qu, a Singaporean man, said: “Singapore has carefully considered all the different ways we can honour the foreign worker for his deed. And naming an airport after him is appropriate as he is not just anybody, but somebody who can do a pull-up to save a life.”

“Over the past few decades, we have seen countless NS men do pull-ups without much payoff, wondering when on earth will this physical fitness skill ever be put to good use, such as protecting the nation or rescuing someone.”

“And along came Subramanian Shanmuganathan, who basically did what all Singaporean men have failed to accomplish since Day One: Do a pull-up to save a life.”

“For this achievement, we should name more things after him, if possible.”

About several thousand showed up in same kind of shirt to campaign against racism.

Several thousand people showed up in Little India today in checked shirts in a bid to fool the mainstream media into thinking that they are the real Little India riot hero.

This after Channel News Asia and The Straits Times made a hash out of their reporting last evening by proclaiming some random person wearing a checked shirt as the Little India riot hero who was caught on video deterring a dustbin-tossing crowd.

However, as the media has not apologise for their erroneous reporting, normal people on the street are sticking it to them.

One random person in a checked shirt, who wanted to be known as Little India Riot Hero, said: “The only reason the mainstream media got it wrong is because they think all South Asians look alike.”

“This is a form of racism.”

“So, if they think we are all alike, then we shall all dress alike then. That would show them.”
