All our fault, Singaporeans said.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who believe being a public servant is its own reward, are kneeling down and apologising to members of parliament and ministers.

This after they found out that MPs and ministers have to work very hard all the time solving Singaproeans’ problems to the point they get tired.

One Singaporean, Dui Bu Qi, said she is very regretful for giving MPs and ministers so many issues to solve all the time: “I am sorry MPs and ministers. Please forgive me.”

“Because of me, you all have to work to come up with solutions to make my life have fewer problems.”

“If only I didn’t have any expectations, let alone hopes and dreams.”

“And what do you get for all this effort? Just a few million dollars a year for ministers and few hundred thousand dollars for MPs.”

“Totally not worth it.”

Other locals said they wished MPs and ministers can work less hard.

Another Singaporean, Wusuo Shi Shi, said: “Being an MP or minister is its own reward. Even when you don’t get anything done.”

Singapore no longer has a blame culture, Singaporeans remind her.

pap-mp-denise-phua-sorry

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who recognise double standards when they see it, are consoling PAP MP Denise Phua.

This after the MP for Jalan Besar GRC apologised on Facebook to foreign workers for labelling them as “walking time-bombs”

One Singaporean, Dui Bu Qi, said the PAP MP did not have to show such contrition in the face of public backlash and most certainly did not have to say sorry: “PAP MP Denise Phua need not apologise.”

“This is because the pain and regret she has to live with is punishment enough.”

“Moreover, Singapore does not have a ‘blame’ culture now, only a ‘learn’ culture.”

However, other Singaporeans who felt even more strongly that it is not PAP MP Denise Phua’s fault have apologised to her instead.

One other local, Dao Qian, said: “Although Singapore no longer has a blame culture, it is still my fault because I am just a regular Singaporean and not part of the PAP establishment.”

“Therefore, I humbly apologise to PAP MP Denise Phua and Health Minister Gan Kim Yong for causing the Hep C outbreak at Singapore General Hospital.”

“And I also apologise to Khaw Boon Wan.”

“And Lee Hsien Loong.”

If you see Majulahs everywhere, you are a real Singaporean.

They said they should have given him more money then none of this would have happened.

sun-ho-kong-hee-city-harvest

Thousands of City Harvest Church goers from that particular walk of life, who believe they are walking with their saviour, bowed their heads low and closed their eyes in anguish as they repeatedly said they are sorry.

This after they apologised to City Harvest Church founder Kong Hee for causing him to be found guilty of fraud with five other current and former leaders of the church.

One church goer, Yeshu Aini, said the responsibility is his to bear: “It is my fault. I should have given 50 percent of my monthly allowance to Kong Hee instead of just 30 percent.”

“I was too stingy and this caused him to do unlawful things to find ways to get more money to give to God.”

“I can only blame myself.”

Other church goers said there can be no one else left to blame for Kong Hee’s predicament but those who were still present in the congregation.

The church goer, Qu Jiao Tang, said: “We must blame all those who are still in the church now and were here all along, because those who left, have obviously absolved themselves of responsibility.”

“But look at us. We are still in this congregation and we have been and are still able to help, but it looks like we haven’t tried hard enough.”

“If we put our hearts and minds into it, we could have made a difference and Pastor Kong Hee wouldn’t be in trouble.”

“It is really the congregation’s mistake. And for that we are sorry, Pastor Kong Hee.”

At press time, current church goers said they will borrow money to give to the church if it makes the place better.

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

rachel-chang-hep-c-virus-sorry

The Straits Times editor said sorry to the Ministry of Health on Oct. 20, 2015, and explained that they did not mean to impugn the integrity of public servants:

The Editor replies: It was not the intention of our column to impugn the integrity of public servants. We also did not mean to imply that the Minister for Health was “unofficially” informed beforehand about this matter. We are sorry that our column gave these wrong impressions.

This after ST’s Assistant Political Editor Rachel Chang wrote an article asking questions and suggesting that public officers and medical professionals, in both the Singapore General Hospital (SGH) and the Ministry of Health (MOH), may have delayed the disclosure of information of a Hepatitis C outbreak to the minister and the public for political reasons.

 

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:

 

sian-half-auntie “ST helped PAP win GE2015 but it doesn’t give them the right or enough brownie points to boss the ministry and minister around.”
Pai Mah Pi, 44-year-old horse stable cleaner

 

sian-half-uncle “There goes her promotion.”
Sheng Zhi, 64-year-old air vent manufacturer

 

happy-bird-girl “She should have just praised Lee Hsien Loong, which would have worked.”
Lee Zhong Li, 17-year-old semi-professional nail art painter

Voters upset they won’t hear Lee Hsien Loong say sorry as SDP beat PAP to CBD lunchtime rally slot

What a waste, they said.

lee-hsien-loong-lunchtime-rally

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who like it when people who make mistakes admit their error, said they are feeling upset that the Singapore Democratic Party has beaten the People’s Action Party to the lunchtime rally slot at the promenade area beside UOB Plaza near Boat Quay on Monday, Sept. 7, from noon to 2pm.

This after many voters said they had taken leave specially to attend the rally, while many others had planned to skip lunch as they had personally wanted to listen to Lee Hsien Loong say sorry.

One disappointed voter, Zhen Shi Wang, said: “When I saw Lee Hsien Loong say sorry back in GE2011 and admit that his party had made errors, I felt very happy, first as a Singaporean, then as a voter.”

“Even more so when I eventually voted for the Workers’ Party instead.”

However, not all Singaporeans are looking forward to the apology alone.

Other Singaporeans said witnessing PAP politicians admit to the electorate that they had not done as well as expected and then pleading with voters to be given another chance at political office will always be a sight to behold.

Another local, Qu Tou Piao, said: “I’m so not used to all these attention that PAP politicians are showering on me as a voter this past GE2015 week, especially when I’ve been neglected by them the last four years.”

“But I feel empowered seeing political leaders grovel for votes.”

“It’s all very cathartic.”

At press time, other voters are betting on which PAP candidates will be crying during rallies.

They want to start fundraising campaign to ensure he gets paid more than S$2.2 million next year to prevent same incident.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who like to take the MRT train because cars are for rich people, are feeling apologetic and sincerely sorry.

This after they caused the North-South and East-West MRT Line to break down at the same time on 7/7/15 during peak hour as they all went home together in the evening at 7pm.

One Singaporean, Jin Soh Lee, said he would like to personally apologise to SMRT CEO Desmond Kuek for causing him inconvenience and dealing with this issue after his office hours: “I’m sorry Desmond Kuek. I caused your MRT system to break down again, especially after your face appear in the newspaper big big saying how you personally ensure SMRT is run properly.”

“So, please forgive me and my fellow commuters for making you work harder during your evening family time to oversee that there are no more train faults even when all of these problems are not your doing.”

Another Singaporean, Gei Ni Qian, went beyond apologising and insisted on doing more on his part to ensure the quality of MRT trains improve: “I would like to donate money to the SMRT CEO to make sure he gets paid more than S$2.2 million as compensation.”

“If we paid more for his salary every year, none of these would have happened.”

“Eh wait…”

They promise they will be better passengers next time and pledged to remain calm even if delay is 48 hours.

scoot-delay

Singaporeans from all walks of life who pay lesser money to take budget aeroplanes have come out to collectively apologise to Scoot CEO Campbell Wilson.

This after they caused his airline’s Singapore-to-Perth flight to delay for more than 21 hours on Saturday evening, which caused the Scoot CEO to write a heartfelt apology where he said the airline is not responsible for reimbursing the hotel stays of affected passengers because it is stated clearly in the terms and conditions.

Da Fei Ji, a passenger who was affected, said: “I’m sorry Campbell Wilson, great CEO of Scoot, solver of passengers’ problems. It is my fault and the fault of my fellow passengers as our presence on your aeroplane caused it to spoil.”

“We also deeply regret that we made you take time out of your busy day to write an apology. It shouldn’t have to come down to this: Addressing the concerns of your passengers.”

“This problem is certainly above your pay scale, Mr CEO Great Man. We should just give you all our money because you deserve it and then ask for your forgiveness.”

Other passengers said they will behave themselves better next time Scoot breaks down again and will tolerate delays of up to 48 hours without demanding assistance and information like how other paying customers are treated.

Dui Bu Qi, another passenger, said: “All the passengers shouldn’t have taken the flight together in the first place. If we all took the plane at another time, this wouldn’t have happened and caused you so much trouble and put you in a difficult position.”

“How inconsiderate of us.”

At press time, other passengers are still kneeling down outside Scoots office begging for forgiveness.

NSFs apologise to ex-SIA stewardess Hilary: ‘We’re sorry you had a hard life in SQ’

NSFs apologise to ex-SIA stewardess Hilary: ‘We’re sorry you had a hard life in SQ’

Tags: , , , , , ,


I’m sure your life as an air stewardess will always be much, much worse than ours, they said.

ex-sia-girl-hilary

Full-time National Servicemen (NSFs) from all vocations in the Singapore Armed Forces, Singapore Police Force and the Singapore Civil Defence Force have gone down on their knees to apologise to Hilary, an ex-Singapore Airlines stewardess.

This after the Singapore Girl wrote a lengthy exposé chronicling the suffering she went through working as an air stewardess for Singapore Airlines.

One NSF, Mai Kao Peh, who is serving in SAF, said: “I am so sorry your experience working as an air stewardess is worse than going for National Service. It must have been tough flying from one country to another compared to staying in camp for the whole work week and doing push-ups and running.”

Another fellow NSF, See Baey Char, who is serving in SCDF, said: “Her life in SQ sounds terrible. She voluntarily signed up for a job that requires her to fly all over the world and get paid a minimum of S$3,500 and a max of S$5,000 a month. That’s just derisory.”

“Unlike me, the country volunteers my services on my behalf, under the threat of getting charged. And my NSF allowance is a princely sum of S$480 a month.”

“I have it so good.”

Another NSF, Gong Jiao Wei, who is starting his NS stint, said: “Oh no, she’s so poor thing. She must fly to places like Paris because it is part of her job to spend a few days there and then fly back to Singapore.”

“On the other hand, I get to stay at the best place on Earth: Pulau Tekong. And where I eat the best food on the planet: Cookhouse food.”

“Some more she is so pitiful she only gets to stay in four-star hotels. This is unlike us. We get to go outfield to enjoy the elements bestowed on us by nature and our sergeants and officers.”

“And every time she is wrong, she must say sorry and move on. It must have been hard for her. For us, we do anything wrong we only risk getting charged and get away easy with doing push-ups and maybe have turn-out session and then stand-by-bed and stand-by-universe until 2am.”

“Some more we get to go back every year to camp after our two-year NS stint to enjoy reservist training. So shiok our lives compared to hers, which is free-and-easy and civilian.”

“NSFs really have it easy compared to SQ Girls.”

 

NSFs are very, very sorry:

They also personally say sorry to SMRT CEO Desmond Kuek.

mrt-dry-hump

Singaporeans from the west side of Singapore, who like to take the MRT train because cars are for rich people, have gone on their knees and repeatedly say sorry to SMRT and its CEO and ask for their forgiveness.

This after many Singaporeans were caught on camera dry humping one another at Lakeside MRT station at about 740am on Oct. 22, 2014.

The incident showed clearly the perpetrators of this gross inappropriate indecent act in action and enjoying every moment of it.

 
Lai Zuo Ai, one of the commuters caught in the sandwich of sweaty human bodies plastered against each other in a sexually-charged way, said: “I would like to apologise to SMRT CEO Desmond Kuek for my actions. I feel disgusted by my own behaviour. I shouldn’t do this kind of things in public. Not anymore, at least.”

This act of contrition was met with agreement from other commuters who were caught up in the dry humping experience.

Another local, Qu Sio Gan, said: “I am sorry, SMRT. This is not right. I am not at liberty to thrust like this.”

“And we the commuters are sorry that we caused your MRT train to break down again. We should not have left the house at the same time and take the train at the same time. We are outraged that we should all go to work and school at the same time.”

“The SMRT CEO should not have to deal with this kind of inconsiderate behaviour of commuters since he is paid so much money every month. This kind of problems is really beyond him.”

PAP should have done better at doing better

They could have done better if they did better at doing better.

The real reason why the PAP has failed to do better to present the Population White Paper this past week is because they should have done better at doing better, analysts say.

This has been a running theme since GE2011, where the PAP apologised and promised to do better if they continued to collect high salaries.

Sorry no cure

Sorry no cure

However, as a result of failing to do better, they have instead only “done better at doing worse”.

Self-styled political pundit, Eric de Yaya said: “Although this is still considered ‘doing better’ at something, it is actually the same as ‘doing worse at doing better’.”

Singaporeans that New Nation spoke to agree that the PAP could do more. To justify their high salaries. And for having escaped getting fired during GE2011.

Kan Na Sai, a Singaporean patriot, said: “So if the PAP can hardly ‘do better at doing better’, they should at the very least try to ‘do worse at doing worse’.”

“It’s a consolation.”
