How dare Straits Times reporter write this kind of article?

An article published in The Straits Times today has caused Singaporeans from all walks of life to question the appropriateness of the headline:

suu-kyi-soldiers

Zhen Shi De, a local said: “This comment is a travesty. Wait till Teo Chee Hean finds out.”

Another Singaporean, Mei Li Mao, said: “She should be banned from coming to Singapore. And the ST reporter Cassandra Chew is tempting fate for writing something like this. What if Chan Chun Sing sees this?”

However, there are others who feel that this type of articles are a step forward for Singapore as it shows that the newspaper is willing to poke its own leaders and paymasters.

Qu Ni De, another Singaporean said: “This is great. But wait till Lui Tuck Yew hears of this.”

“And I wonder what Tan Chuan-Jin has to say about this too.”

Annual noise-fest delayed as cleaners scrape flowers off track.

Rehearsals for the F1 Grand Prix in Singapore have been postponed as authorities frantically scramble to rid the race track of a flood of peonies.

The flowers appeared as soon as Burma’s opposition leader and democracy symbol Aung San Suu Kyi touched down from Changi Airport and made her way to her hotel.

Witnesses were stunned to see peonies blossoming with each kilometre she travelled on Singapore’s roads, cleansing the soft totalitarian nation with the soft breeze that meteorologists have termed “Burma Spring”.

“I felt inspired to push for more liberty and freedom the moment she touched down,” said pro-democracy activist Min Zhu Dang. “The flowers are a clear sign that deep down within this concrete nation, there is beauty.”

Authorities have regarded the peonies as a temporary nuisance and are expected to be cleared within two hours.

Plant experts from the National University of Singapore have also given their assurance that the peonies should not be regarded as weeds as they are impotent and therefore cannot spread.
