Temasek Holdings will be counting on Singapore’s Lemon Law a lot in the near future.

This after they realised the SMRT trains they are going to buy for a few billion dollars might have more hairline cracks or would break down again, rendering them lemons in the eyes of the law.

A Lemon Law provides additional rights to consumers for non-conforming goods, which are those of a different quality, condition or type than that which was agreed upon during the transaction.

One Singaporean, Suan Ling Mong, said: “They came here to buy trains and train tracks, not lemons.”

“Therefore, if it turns into a lemon, they are not going to idly stand by and live with it.”

“It is good that Singapore safeguards the interests of buyers from unscrupulous sellers.”

Other locals, however, said buyers beware applies as well.

Yu Chun, another local, said: “If buyers do not exercise due diligence and still opt to buy products from questionable sellers, there is nothing the law can do sometimes.”

“You can warn people not to go to Sim Lim Square but a fool and his money are soon parted.”

Disgruntled S’poreans demanding money back for Black Hello Kitty

Disgruntled S’poreans demanding money back for Black Hello Kitty

Expect to get money back under Lemon Law.

No bone and cannot sing. Tsk.

No bone and cannot sing. Tsk.

Disgruntled Singaporeans from all walks of life and with varying maturity levels who bought the prized Black Hello Kitty from McDonald’s are asking for a refund under the Lemon Law.

Lemon law protects consumers against defective goods that fail to conform to contract, or meet satisfactory quality or performance standards at the time of purchase.

It’s like getting married only to realise she cannot cook.

One Singaporean, Buay Kong Wei, said the McDonald’s marketing of the Hello Kitty was deceptive: “The Black Hello Kitty cannot sing at all. Then why they still advertise as Singing Bone Hello Kitty?”

This has led to severe confusion.

Another Singaporean, Mei Gu Tou, said “The Hello Kitty don’t even have bone. Then why they still advertise as Singing Bone Hello Kitty?”

The purchase has also caused some Singaporeans to be more independent.

Mei Peng You, a local, said: “I thought that by buying this Black Hello Kitty I will be accepted by my peers, but I am still an outcast. Even more so.”
