S’poreans react to survey finding long working hours an obstacle to family time

Posted on 19 May 2016

Three thoughts you must have had.

long-working-hours

About 50 percent of 700 Singaporeans surveyed feel that long working hours prevent them from spending more time with their families, according to a survey by national family council Families For Life (FFL).

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:

 

sian-half-auntie “I wouldn’t have guessed otherwise.”
Wu Leow, 43-year-old spoon tester

 

sian-half-uncle “A new survey should find that spending time doing stupid surveys an obstacle to family time.”
Qu Nee Mah, 66-year-old tree doctor

 

happy-bird-girl “Having an affair will lead to more family time, because now you’d have two families.”
Gao Wai Yu, 19-year-old matchmaker

    WANG PEI!!!
    You are absolutely brilliant!
    Love that Gao Wai Yu’s statement!

    The picture of the woman in glasses, regardless of “her” remarks, always brings a smile!
    She is that Ah Soh on the street, your next-door neighbour, the lady who clears our tables in food courts, the woman guiding angry passengers when the MRT breaks down (it hasn’t broken down for two weeks – clearly a MIRACLE!), the car-park ticket lady, the waitress serving in a restaurant…

    Have a fabulous weekend ahead (WITHOUT any MRT breakdown HOPEFULLY)!
