JEM closed for second straight day, S’poreans in the west lose all sense of purpose

Posted on 20 September 2013

Ceiling collapse worse than economic stagnation, negative growth rate, recession.


Singaporeans residing in the west, particularly in Jurong East, have lost almost all sense of purpose in life.

This after JEM shopping mall is closed indefinitely until further notice as the ceiling collapse two days earlier is still being investigated and fixed.

One western-residing Singaporean, Yu Lang Dong, said: “If I cannot shop, I might as well just die.”

Her sentiments were matched by many others who walked around Jurong East aimlessly, unsure what the future will bring.
