Second Jollibee outlet gives boycott organisers another chance

Second Jollibee outlet gives boycott organisers another chance

Abysmal attempt at first boycott tarnished Singaporeans’ brand name.


The Boycott Jollibee Singapore campaign started by anonymous Facebook organisers two weeks ago, has given Singaporeans in general a bad name.

This is because Jollibee Singapore has just announced plans to open a second outlet within the next few months.

This is following the success of the flagship restaurant opened here in mid-March to a lot of fanfare. This proves that the first boycott was nothing but an abject failure.

The original Facebook page calling for the boycott of Jollibee Singapore has also since closed down. This shows how some Singaporeans cannot even sustain a virtual entity.

This has caused people worldwide to believe that Singaporeans are unable to organise themselves properly around a given message.

Or are always tempted by food too easily.

Self-styled political pundit, Eric de Yaya, said: “This failure at boycotting Jollibee has severe ramifications for Singaporeans. It shows the world we cannot commit to a cause.”

Others interviewed said the boycott failed because they were running out of places to eat.

Jiak Min Kia, a Singaporean patriot, said: “Gilbert Goh also ask people to boycott food places that employ foreigners. At this rate, there are very little things left to eat.”

“So if we want to be traitors of the cause, might as well pick the best tasting food place that is supposed to be boycotted and eat there, right?”

Leaves behind two elderly parents, domestic helper and pet terrapin

A man in his late thirties has passed away after enduring a week-long protest against immigrants in Singapore. A regular contributor to TR Emeritus and various boycott Facebook pages, Sin Ka Poh was leading a nation-wide boycott of cafes and restaurants operated by foreign labour.

Beginning with a boycott of Ya Kun cafes, which he claimed were being overrun by “PRCs and Pinoys”, Sin led a group of three in a “Occupy Kaya Toast” protest.

“He just sat there for days without ordering anything. And he looked so angry!” said Fu Wu Ren, an employee at Ya Kun who repeatedly urged Sin to try the shop’s perfectly cooked half boiled eggs enjoyed with a moderate drizzle of dark soya sauce.

Sin fainted on the third day of the protest and was brought to the Tan Tock Seng hospital. Regaining consciousness after being on drip for half a day, he then refused treatment and demanded to be brought home.

“He told me that I should go back and dance around the coconut trees, and leave the medical jobs to Singaporeans. I thought he was delusional from that strike and increased his medicine to prevent hallucinations. I didn’t know he actually meant it,” said his doctor Samy Govindasamy, a Singaporean Indian who does not dance around coconut trees.

“And he looked so angry!”

Three days later, Sin passed away at home while updating his Facebook status. It read: “Continue to boycott restaurants that don’t employ Singaporeans for $5 an hour!”

His domestic helper was inconsolable.

“I told boy boy. You cannot play computer everyday without eating or drinking. I cooked his favourite curry chicken noodles every night but he refused to eat. Just because I’m from the Philippines!” said Maria Fontanilla who has worked for the Sin family for the past 20 years.

“He was such a nice boy in army. I remember folding his uniform every Sunday night before he book in. But lately, he looked so angry!” she said in tears.

According to various forum letters written by Sin, his hatred for foreigners escalated after his unsuccessful career in Australia. Sin leaves behind two elderly parents, a domestic helper, and his pet terrapin Jim Jim.
