Minister for Social and Family Development and Second Minister for Defence and prime minister designate Chan Chun Sing was spotted shopping alone at NTUC on Sunday morning, much to the shock of netizens in Singapore.

This shocking news was posted on the Facebook page of Denise Phua Lay Peng, a PAP MP who is not Chan’s GRC teammate. As such, it is safe to say that she does not have a vested interest in promoting Chan as not one of those super atas MPs who go into politics for money.

Which means she was genuinely shocked that a minister would shop at NTUC for groceries.

“I thought all Ministers got their maids to do grocery shopping for them one. Or they shop at Marketplace in CBD,” exclaimed future voter Goh Show Peng who declared her allegiance to the humble minister.

However, not all netizens were impressed with this apparent display of humility.

“If he really want to be blue collar, go shop at Sheng Siong lah,” said supermarket shopper Da Jian Jia.

    “must have given time off to wife”
    Please, AWARE, why no sound of complaint?
    Is a wife a slave? Is a wife supposed to do all NTUC shopping? Must a wife apply for time off? We are disgusted.
