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.”
Yew Xin Xing, 17-year-old faith healer

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

Khaw Boon Wan said in his first blog post as Transport Minister on Oct. 2 that the Ministry of Transport will be reviewing private car-sharing apps such as uberX to ensure a “level playing field”.

This after Khaw said he met a number of taxi drivers who felt that such apps are unfair as the drivers do not need a vocational license.

The review will be undertaken by Senior Minister of State for Transport Ng Chee Meng, in consultation with taxi drivers and the general public, to “forge a fair solution”.

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:

 

sian-half-auntie “No wonder the Uber driver wanted to run in GE2015 because he saw this coming.”
Jia Qi Che, 42-year-old steering wheel designer

 

sian-half-uncle “Makes you ponder if the transport minister is really speaking up for the people or ComforDelGro.”
Wei Ren Ming, 66-year-old car mat seller

 

happy-bird-girl “A fair solution means the government wants to make some money too.”
Jiak Lui, 17-year-old unemployed
