Three thoughts you must have had.
According to Hong Kong media, the nine Terrex Infantry Carrier Vehicles belonging to Singapore that were impounded after being seized by China on Nov. 23, 2016, have “suddenly vanished”.
No further details were given about their whereabouts.
Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:
||“This is starting to really resemble my CPF money.”
— Gong Ji Kim, 42-year-old accountant
||“Someone do a quick search to see if they are available on Taobao.”
— Buey Min Kia, 66-year-old merchant
||“When my ex-boyfriend vanished, I also never saw him again.”
— Mei Liang Xing, 17-year-old student

Give tanks with a grateful heart.
Singaporeans from all walks of life, who appreciate that they can give tanks, are giving tanks profusely.
This after it was announced that Singapore will celebrate Tanksgiving Day on Nov. 23 every year from now on and will be making the day a public holiday.
One Singaporean, Gan En, said: “Since we gave China nine tanks on Nov. 23, 2016, it is good to look back on this day from now on annually as a reminder that there are other things in life to give tanks for.”
“Giving tanks should be customary and a ingrained practice.”
However, other locals said China taking the nine Terrex Infantry Carrier Vehicles do not really constitute giving tanks.
Another local, Huan Geh Wo, said: “No tanks, I’d rather they be mine.”
“Then, it would really be… explosive,” he said as he put on his sunglasses as The Who came on.
