A step in the right direction as he hasn’t committed hara-kiri yet.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who like to see other people take the initiative, have come out to praise Transport Minister Khaw Boon Wan.

This after Minister Khaw posted a photo of him and Lui Tuck Yew together on Facebook.

One Singaporean, Tui Siew, said Minister Khaw is doing the right thing by learning from Lui Tuck Yew on how to step down: “This is a good sign. It shows that Khaw Boon Wan is stepping down as Transport Minister and learning the finer points on how to do it.”

Other Singaporeans who saw the photo said they believe Minister Khaw might have to take a few more lessons as he is not very good with following instructions.

Another local, Zi Sha, said: “The last time Minister Khaw Boon Wan said if you did something wrong, you must come out to admit your mistake publicly and commit hara-kiri.”

“But he did not even follow his own advice.”

“I hope he can meet with Lui Tuck Yew more often.”

“This will help speed up the process.”

Their entire lives have collapsed as they slowly come to their senses and a new awakening.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who have never doubted their senses, are in a state of deep shock.

This after they saw a photo showing actor-comedian Henry Thia posing beside Transport Minister Khaw Boon Wan.

One Singaporean, Kwa Teo Kwee, said: “This is highly unsettling, as I used to think that all the funny things Khaw Boon Wan said was the result of Henry Thia taking his place and having a ball of a time on his behalf.”

“This just means it was actually Khaw who was saying all the funny things for real.”

However, other Singaporeans said this might be a blessing in disguise.

Kee Zho Hee, another local, said: “Maybe this just might all be a good thing. It could very well be Khaw Boon Wan’s exit from politics.”

“He can join showbiz and be Hui Ge’s double.”

“Since they are both professionally hilarious.”

Commuters from all walks of life, who like to take public transport because cars are for rich people, have come out to thank Transport Minister Khaw Boon Wan.

This after train services on the North-South Line were disrupted between Yishun and Marina South Pier in both directions for more than two hours on Wednesday morning, Nov. 25, due to a power fault, from as early as 6am.

As a result, commuters said they were trapped during peak hour traffic but were basking in the glow emanating from an outpouring of moral support from Transport Minister Khaw, who they could feel was with them.

One commuter, Gan En, said she is thankful, nonetheless, as the Transport Minister’s moral support helped tide everyone over: “Even though he was not with us physically, we could feel his presence spiritually.”

Other commuters said having the train break down on them again shows that they deserve it.

One train-taking Singaporean, Boh Lui Lang, said: “I do not want to hear any more complaints from myself.”

Three thoughts that must have went past your mind at some point.

khaw-boon-wan-news

Transport Minister Khaw Boon Wan wrote a blog post published on Monday, Nov. 9, 2015, saying that his new role in Ministry of Transport includes overseeing public transportation as well as the aviation and maritime sectors.

He also reiterated that there is more to his portfolio than the state of the country’s MRT transport system.

He ended off the post calling for the public’s understanding and moral support.

 

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:

 

sian-half-auntie “This is the same as saying that there is more to Singapore than just the PAP, which is correct.”
Fan Dui Dang, 42-year-old semi-professional blogger

 

sian-half-uncle “With all the moral support he is getting, it will sure be funny if the MRT keeps breaking down again.”
Dee Dee Pai, 63-year-old brake pad maker

 

happy-bird-girl “I hope Khaw Boon Wan can give Singaporeans his understanding and moral support whenever the train breaks down.”

O-level students apologise to Khaw Boon Wan for making NEL MRT spoil, doing badly for exams

They accept full responsibility if their results are not good, fail to get good jobs in future.

o-level-students-apologise-khaw-boon-wan

Thousands of O-level students from all walks of life, who rely on the public transport system to get them to their life-determining final examination venue on time because cars are for parents who are rich enough to drive, have come out to apologise to Transport Minister Khaw Boon Wan.

This after the North East Line broke down on Monday morning, Oct. 26, for two hours during peak hour, when O-Level Additional Maths and various A-Level language exams were scheduled.

One O-level student, Buay Tak Chek, said he is sorry for not being able to do well for the exam having arrived at the exam venue flustered and barely making it on time: “I am sorry I am unable to make the North East Line work smoothly because I was inconsiderate enough to take the train with everyone else at the same time.”

“I am going to be a letdown to Singapore and her economy because my O-level results will be affected, I cannot enter junior college, can’t get into a local university and end up not being able to afford to study overseas.”

“With no degree, I doubt even SkillsFuture can save me next time.”

Other students said they must be blamed for their actions if there ever was a dearth of civil servants in five to 10 years’ time as a result of many of this current batch not doing well for their O-level exams, and subsequently, won’t have a local degree and will not be considered for a government sector position.

Another student, Mei Qian Tu, said: “Students must be blamed for taking the MRT train at the same time in the morning. If we organised ourselves better by not taking the train at the same time, the MRT will not break down and our future will not be affected.”

“Our lack of good grades is our own doing and we will accept all consequences.”

“We would like to register our deep regret and sincere apologies to Transport Minister Khaw Boon Wan.”

“Even as MRT lines keep breaking down, he must not feel that his 70 percent strong mandate is under any threat of wavering, because that is an issue below his pay scale.”

“We hope he will stay on as transport minister forever and not feel like he is to be blamed for anything.”

“Moreover, this is not a cross he should be willing to bear because the public is the one that takes the MRT regularly and makes it spoil, while he is never the cause of any problems because he seldom or never takes it at all.”

Three thoughts that must have went past your mind at some point.

khaw-shopkeepers

Transport Minister Khaw Boon Wan has proposed asking shopkeepers working in MRT stations to help out station staff during a rail breakdown.

Khaw said these shopkeepers could help guide commuters to the right bus stop or to the right queue to reduce confusion among commuters.

He made this suggest in a blog post on Oct. 24, titled “The First Hour”.

 

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:

 

sian-half-auntie “70 percent of Singaporeans would agree to this kind of chut pattern.”
Hua Jia, 43-year-old batik shirt maker

 

sian-half-uncle “At this rate, then the shopkeepers will be very busy, every week have to direct people.”
Jin Boh Eng, 63-year-old semi-retired

 

happy-bird-girl “Khaw Boon Wan should personally go down to the station to direct commuters. Hands on training.”

They are truly sorry for causing him so much pain and suffering as Transport Minister already.

khaw-boon-wan-lost

Singaporeans from all walks of life who like to take public transport because cars are for rich people, have come out to publicly apologise to Transport Minister Khaw Boon Wan.

This after they caused the North East MRT Line to break down again this Tuesday morning during peak hour as everyone got ready for work and school at the same time at around 8am.

One Singaporean, Jin Soh Lee, said he would like to personally apologise to Khaw Boon Wan for causing him inconvenience: “I’m sorry Minister Khaw Boon Wan. I caused your MRT system to break down even before you had time to warm up your Transport Minister seat in Parliament.”

“Please forgive me and my fellow commuters for making you work harder to oversee that there is no more train faults even when all of these problems are not your fault.”

Other Singaporeans, who are even more apologetic and guilt-ridden, said they are to blame for causing Minister Khaw to take the wrong train and ending his honeymoon period in the transport ministry so abruptly.

This after he posted on the morning of the NEL breakdown that he had taken the wrong train on the Circle Line as he had many things on his mind.

Another Singaporean, Zhen Bao Qian, went beyond apologising and insisted on doing more on his part to ensure Khaw Boon Wan will never be inconvenienced again since 70 percent of people voted for this: “Therefore, as Singaporeans, we must stop taking public transport altogether so that the train will never ever break down again.”

“And Minister Khaw Boon Wan will never have any more problems on his mind causing him to take the wrong train.”

“Furthermore, if Singaporeans everywhere stopped taking the MRT, Khaw Boon Wan will have the entire train to himself when he takes it.”

“Sorry, Khaw Boon Wan.”

Three thoughts that must have went past your mind at some point.

khaw-boon-wan-cheer-mrt

Transport Minister Khaw Boon Wan wrote on his blog on Oct. 9 that Singapore’s MRT system must strive to be as good as Hong Kong’s MTR system.

He also wrote that Singaporeans should be “mentally prepared” for disruptions, noting that the MTR faces a major disruption on average once a month.

However, he hopes Singaporeans will cheer those working in public transport sector on whenever there is a breakdown, because the natural thing to do is to also cheer our athletes on even when they lose.

 

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:

 

sian-half-auntie “The demands made on Singapore citizens are increasing by the day.”
Shou Bu Leow, 46-year-old seamstress

 

sian-half-uncle “When athletes lose, the cheering spectators will still be stranded for hours because the MRT broke down and they cannot go home.”
Bu Hui Jia, 64-year-old station cleaner

 

happy-bird-girl “I should also cheer each time Khaw Boon Wan gets a ministerial pay raise even though I hate it.”
Tan Tua Lui, 19-year-old gold chocolate coin maker

New transport minister Khaw Boon Wan posted a photo of himself taking the MRT on his Facebook page.

He wrote:

I live near Ang Mo Kio. Yesterday I drove to work. This morning, I took the Circle Line. Time taken: same. I am visiting Land Transport Authority – We Keep Your World Moving‘s Operation Centre later today. How? CCL + NEL. No problem!

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:

 

sian-half-auntie “Him taking MRT is a once every 50 years event. Just like SG50.”
Pian Lang, 45-year-old train station cleaner

 

sian-half-uncle “More should be done to encourage him to take the MRT during peak hour in the morning and evening.”
Hen Duo Ren, 63-year-old survey response collector

 

happy-bird-girl “It would be a miracle if he took the train daily without putting up a photo on Facebook.”

Not nice to be mistaken and asked to commit hara-kiri all the time.

khaw-boon-wan-henry-thia

Singaporeans from all walks of life who have the welfare of others in their hearts, have come out to encourage local actor Henry Thia to find ways to differentiate himself from new Transport Minister Khaw Boon Wan.

This after Minister Khaw, who bears an uncanny resemblance to the local actor also known as Hui Ge, was previously put on 24-hour suicide watch surveillance as many Singaporeans have been encouraging him to commit suicide.

One Singaporean, See Baey Suay, said: “This is really for Henry Thia’s own good.”

“Henry Thia is an innocent party. I wouldn’t feel good being mistaken for Khaw Boon Wan all the time and people approaching me out of the blue to ask me to commit suicide.”

However, other Singaporeans said this might be a blessing in disguise.

Kee Zho Hee, another local, said: “Maybe this just might all be a good thing. It could very well be Khaw Boon Wan’s exit from politics.”

“He can join show biz and be Hui Ge’s double.”

“Since they are both professionally hilarious.”
