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.”

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who like to see the PAP in action because it is an action party, have come out to congratulate ex-transport minister Lui Tuck Yew.

This after he was seen putting up banners by the road after his retirement from politics.

One Singaporean, Tom Bah Lek, said he is impressed that the PAP election campaign is off to such a good start: “It is nice to see the PAP get creative once in a while and mix things up a bit and taking liberties with their logo.”

“It can get kind of boring with the party, but seeing how they hang the banners this time makes me believe they either are going for something different or are really losing it.”

“Either way it is great.”

At press time, they hope to see Civilian Lee Hsien Loong upside down as well.

Standee selling for as much as S$200 on black market.

lui-tuck-yew-cardboard-01

News of Transport Minister Lui Tuck Yew’s retirement from politics saw most of his cardboard standees stolen from MRT stations as they have become a hot collectors’ item selling on the black market for as much as S$200 a piece.

The cardboard standees were placed in MRT stations as a breakdown prevention reminder as his presence can remind MRT trains not to break down so often.

One Singaporean, Hen Ai Ni, said she is upset Minister Lui will no longer be around to make her feel safe: “Under his watchful gaze, I was certain trains will run on time and not break down as often.”

“Now that he is not around, trains will still breakdown but no one to watch over it.”

Another Singaporean, See Baey Suay, said there is still a silver lining even though it is sad that it is Minister Lui who has to step down because he cannot take the toll of public pressure: “Maybe the next transport minister is Khaw Boon Wan.”

“After taking on the role, he can retire next.”

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

lui-tuck-yew-retire

Transport Minister Lui Tuck Yew will be retiring from politics and will not stand for re-election in the coming General Election.

Lui was appointed Minister for Transport on May 21, 2011.

He was first elected as Member of Parliament for Tanjong Pagar Group Representation Constituency (GRC) in 2006.

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:

 

sian-half-auntie “I also wouldn’t mind getting paid millions of dollars a year and unable to solve the transport problem.”
Ba Wang Chan, 45-year-old taxi driver

 

sian-half-uncle “So he also don’t need to commit hara-kiri like how Mah Bow Tan also doesn’t have to commit hara-kiri?”
Hor Yee See, 68-year-old ex-triad member

 

happy-bird-girl “When the train breaks down again, I don’t know if I can say ‘Tuck Yew’ with the same amount of conviction anymore like when he was still in office.”
Mei Yew Yong, 18-year-old legal assistant

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

lui-tuck-yew-public

Transport Minister Lui Tuck Yew said on Aug. 3, 2015, that bus and train fares will be reduced by up to 1.9 percent from December 2015. This is against the norm as prices are usually increased.

The reason for the lowering of fares was due to reduced fuel costs.

Minister Lui also said that every commuter group is expected to pay lower fares and the Public Transport Council will work out the specific reductions.

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:

 

sian-half-auntie “This is the reason why we should have General Election every year.”
Ta Xuan, 40-year-old soya bean milk maker

 

sian-half-uncle “General Election will cause Singaporeans to run out of problems.”
Mei Wen Tee, 60-year-old wholesale fruit seller

 

happy-bird-girl “This just proves the Public Transport Council is useless because the Minister’s word is the be-all and end-all.”
Zuo Huang Di, 17-year-old jobless

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 









Lui Tuck Yew’s watchful gaze to protect Bukit Panjang flats from future blackouts

Lui Tuck Yew’s watchful gaze to protect Bukit Panjang flats from future blackouts

MRT trains have benefited from his watchful gaze.

Residents staying in blocks of Bukit Panjang flats that experienced a blackout on Tuesday night can be assured that such an event will not happen again.

This after it was announced that the affected flats will all be put under the purview of Transport Minister Lui Tuck Yew’s watchful gaze, which has been credited with helping MRT breakdown prevention.

One government spokesperson, Bak Chew, said Minister Lui will oversee the flats personally for the time being as cardboard standees of him keeping watch round the clock will be rushed into production: “Our pilot testing previously of Minister Lui Tuck Yew’s standees putting MRT stations under his watchful gaze improved breakdown prevention.”

“His show of extreme concern has benefited the MRT system greatly and we hope to transplant this benefit to other domains.”

Over time, the plan will be to introduce the Minister Lui cardboard standee into every home, where the minister can put everything in the house under his watchful gaze, to improve their functionality.

At press time, it is believed this will help correct Singapore’s declining birth rate, reverse juvenile delinquency problems and also improve the PAP’s vote share at the next General Election.

Low breakdowns doesn’t mean no breakdowns.

Buoyed by the success of the Singapore Police Force’s campaign of using a cardboard standee policeman to reduce crime, the Transport Ministry has approved a plan to make cardboard standees of Minister Lui Tuck Yew to be placed in every station to reduce train breakdowns.

This is done in the hopes that his presence can remind MRT trains not to break down so often.

One ministry spokesperson, Zhen Fu Gong, said the success rate of this campaign has been tested and proven to be effective beyond belief: “Minister Lui Tuck Yew was present at Ang Mo Kio station on Wednesday, a day after the worst MRT breakdown in Singapore’s history.”

“When we assumed the worst was to come, that the trains will still malfunction and disruptions were widely expected, it turned out that there were no major incidents and we can credit the smooth-sailing rides that day to Minister Lui’s presence.”

“The trains worked better than expected mostly because Minister Lui expressed extreme concern for the state of affairs, which inevitably made things better because he cared.”

As per the transport ministry’s plan, there are currently two official slogans for the campaign: “Low breakdowns doesn’t mean no breakdowns” and “Together we can stop breakdowns”, which are meant to spur the MRT train-riding community to come together to make sure there are no more faults or disruptions in the system once everyone is invested and has mindshare in the belief.

One commuter, Jin Boh Lui, said the use of cardboard standees will no doubt make rides smoother under the watchful gaze of Minister Lui: “I believe at least two of Minister Lui’s cardboard standees can be placed on each train platform, while another four or five can be placed inside each MRT carriage.”

“Over time, each commuter should be allowed to carry one cardboard Lui Tuck Yew standee around as a way to guard against breakdowns.”

“There is no such thing as being too complacent about breakdowns these days and it is each commuter’s responsibility to make sure MRT trains don’t spoil.”

Transport Minister Lui Tuck Yew showed up at Ang Mo Kio MRT station this morning and stood there with the hoi polloi waiting for trains to pull in into the station.

This signals that he successfully completed one ICT high-key cycle.

This after taking public transport and waiting for it is considered a form of reservist training as National Development Minister Khaw Boon Wan said previously that staying in a HDB flat is like serving National Service.

Singaporeans from all walks of life who take public transport and stay in HDB flats said they are heartened to see the transport minister performing a national duty so early in the morning.

Didi Pai, a Singaporean, said: “I have been serving National Service all my life and undergoing ICT cycle everyday.”

“I hope other ministers and MPs can undergo National Service and ICT cycles more often too.”

“Especially Lee Hsien Loong.”

Commuters find out real reason why buses arrived on time this morning.

Step aside satellite updates, increased frequency of buses and what-have-yous.

Despite all these improvements, public transportation waiting times have not decreased.

And that was why commuters were shocked to find public buses actually arriving on time this morning.

Little did they know that this was the working of the transport minister, Lui Tuck Yew, who was sitting at the bus stop counting the minutes.

One commuter, Ta Pa Shi, said: “This really put pressure on public transport operators. We need to install a permanent guard post for the Transport Minister.”

Another commuter, Deng Dao Sian, said: “If everyday can like that, steady.”

Commuters thank minister Lui Tuck Yew for resuming train services

Commuters thank minister Lui Tuck Yew for resuming train services

Tags: ,


Cheers of joy erupted at Harbourfront MRT station as train services between Dhoby Ghaut and HarbourFront stations, halted since the morning, resumed just in time for evening commuters to rush back home.

The service was disrupted for a day due to a power supply problem in the tunnel at Outram Park Station. According to the Land Transport Authority, smoke had been detected in the tunnel while a spokesperson from SBS Transit reported that one of the connecting cables of the overhead power supply located south of Outram Park station had snapped.

While most attributed the quick resumption of services to hardworking engineers, many others thanked transport minister Lui Tuck Yew for standing around to make sure things got done.

“I’m amazed he found the time to ensure that the crowd walked in an orderly fashion,” said Wan Too Pi, 35, as he walked stridently out of Dhoby Gaut station to the free shuttle buses provided. He was also impressed at how the minister chose to observe how commuters reacted to the breakdown, instead of looking at whether the repair work within the tunnel was done properly.

“He probably just let the experts do their job. You can hire engineers to fix things but as we’ve seen from the last elections, giving out money isn’t enough to keep people happy when things in the country keep breaking down.”

Minister Lui also noted that bridging buses had arrived very quickly though some bus services calling at Dhoby Ghaut were not utilised.

“I finally realised that Minister Lui is a superhero,” remarked another commuter who wanted to be referred to as Mary.

“He’s like cylops from X-men, got eye power. With him staring at the bus stand, waiting time for the bus automatically gets shortened to 10 minutes and with luck, sometimes empty buses even appear!” she said, adding that other commuters had to wait nearly half an hour for the transport when the minister was not around.


This is not the first time that the minister displayed his powers in public. Controversy erupted a few months ago when he was spotted taking a train on a seemingly random day and observing that local trains were indeed comfortable. Contrary to widespread reports that commuters were in fact, squished like sardines in a can, the minister had at least a metre worth of space around him as he gazed into the distance.

Professor Y of the Lee Kuan Yew School of Mutant Studies felt that the minister should have kept his powers under wraps as humans were not ready to accept high evolved beings into society.

“Look at what Singaporeans are doing to the foreigners now. You expect them to treat mutants like Tuck Yew with respect? Please lar.”

But another political observer felt that in this case, the minister’s superpowers were deployed effectively and may have scored him some popularity points.

“With great power comes great responsibility,” said Assistant Law Professor Eugene Tay.

“This time, power was exercised responsibly for the good of mankind, and for the benefit of the ruling party.”
