S’poreans react to man walking on S’pore F1 Grand Prix night race track

Three thoughts that must have went past your mind at some point.

F1-singapore-man-on-track

A man took a walk on the Singapore F1 Grand Prix track on Sunday night, Sept. 20, which caused the safety car to be scrambled to warn the other drivers.

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:

 

sian-half-auntie “He has totally given up hope in Singapore after PAP won 70 percent of votes in GE2015.”
Qu Zi Sah, 44-year-old nurse

 

sian-half-uncle “He is sending a message that he is sick of the road diversions all week long.”
Guo Ma Lu, 63-year-old traffic light manufacturer

 

happy-bird-girl “What’s the worst that can happen? Everyone dies eventually.”
Shang Xi Tian, 17-year-old church worker

Lewis Hamilton is planning on going for his first Meet-the-People session.

This after he failed to insert his CashCard into his IU properly before driving past the ERP gantry.

Sources familiar with what happened said the F1 driver is unwilling to pay the S$10 fine as it is too hefty for a minor error.

Hamilton said: “I’m not sure if my chances of an appeal are good. It is after the General Election, after all, so they won’t be as lenient as before.”

At press time, other F1 drivers said ERP gantries failed to substantially improve the speed of travel on Singapore’s road.

They want to be part of Singapore’s rich racing culture.

Elderly Singaporeans from all walks of life, who like to work out and keep fit using unconventional methods, have come out to explain why they are exercising so hard these days.

This after many elderly in Singapore are seen collecting cardboard and moving them from one location to another, in what looks like a bid to get those muscles of theirs working out hard and maintaining a healthy lifestyle with work-life balance.

One elderly Singaporean, Lao Tou Zi, said this view is correct: “Some S$150 million is spent annually setting up the F1 night race in Singapore and it has been happening for eight years already. We find it inspirational and want to do our small bit to be part of this vibrant racing culture in Singapore.”

“Although I don’t have a car, with some training on my bicycle and my trusty cardboard, my hope is to represent Singapore and compete in the Tour de France eventually.”

At press time, there are other elderly folks who are using cardboard to train for weightlifting events in the next Olympics.

5 places to go this F1 weekend from Sept. 18 to 20, 2015 to enjoy the haze

5 places to go this F1 weekend from Sept. 18 to 20, 2015 to enjoy the haze

Tags: , , , ,


Here is a list of places in Singapore where you get to enjoy the best of Indonesia.

1. City Hall

F1-race-city-hall

This place will be teeming with people wearing lanyards looking like they are enjoying themselves but are, in fact, soaking in the heat, haze and humidity. Mostly outdoors, there is nothing to stop you from sucking in the smoke and soot from the race and Indonesia. Double blessings.

 

2. Sands Expo and Convention Centre in Marina Bay Sands

f1-mbs

People here will think they are living it up because they made it in life to come here. But the truth is, the people who really made it are in Monaco and own a home on Mauritius. But that doesn’t mean you can be stopped from enjoying the haze courtesy of Indonesia.

 

3. Clubs and bars: 1-Altitude, Ce La Vi, New Asia Bar and [email protected]

1-altitude

This place will see people dressed to the nines and wearing lanyards. And sucking in the haze. Non-smoking section? Does it matter?

 

4. Singapore Flyer

f1-flyer

No one goes to the Singapore Flyer on normal days. So there is really no reason to go there this weekend.

 

5. Anywhere outside your home

f1-car-lame

This is to reduce the risk of bumping into anyone wearing a lanyard and walking around feeling like they have made it in life because they can afford to watch cars go round and round. But don’t let this hold you back from enjoying the haze if it is something you adore.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 











S’poreans confused why S’pore Airlines will sign sponsorship agreement with Formula One

S’poreans confused why S’pore Airlines will sign sponsorship agreement with Formula One

Tags: ,


They ask if passengers will now get to drive racing cars to their travel destination instead of flying SQ?

SIA-F1

Singaporeans from all walks of life woke up this morning feeling confused.

This after they read in the news that Singapore Airlines has signed a two-year sponsorship agreement with Formula One.

One Singaporean, Da Fei Ji, said: “You mean now no need fly aeroplane but drive sports car can reach the destination also?”

The confusion was worsened as Ong Beng Seng from Singapore Grand Prix said the “synergistic partnership” between the two parties provides wide exposure and opportunities in promoting Singapore and Formula One to the world

Another local, Tao Jian Tia, said: “You mean cannot use Internet to promote F1 around the world meh?”

However, other Singaporeans who have made a slight breakthrough in their understanding said they get where SIA and F1 are coming from.

Wo Ming Bai, another Singaporean, said: “I get it. The SIA Girls will drive the car for this year’s F1 night race in Singapore.”

“Then the winners will go onto the podium and spray champagne on each other’s chest. Nice.”

Letter writer: Disallowing car pooling by Alonso, Webber sends mix signals

Letter writer: Disallowing car pooling by Alonso, Webber sends mix signals

Singapore government should intervene as we continue to push for shared car ownership.

Dear New Nation,

I watched last evening’s F1 race with utter despair.

With COE prices at an all-time high, at first I was heartened to watch car pooling in action during Sunday night’s F1 race.

F1-longpang

carpooling-F1

Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso had picked up his friend — Red Bull’s Mark Webber — after Webber was stranded on the last lap of the race and they made their way back home together.

This show of camaraderie and comradeship was heartening, especially during a race, and it undoubtedly sent Singaporeans a positive message that if race car drivers who have regular sexual intercourse with slim-waisted models can car pool, why not mere mortals like us?

But according to the F1 race stewards, car pooling is not allowed, because it is dangerous!

And as a result, both Alonso and Webber have been reprimanded and will face penalties in their next race all because they displayed their petrolsexuality!

Petrolsexual is in between homosexual and metrosexual. It is when guys develop bromance over fuel engines.

I think reprimanding people for car pooling is ridiculous.

The Singapore government and relevant authorities must petition on behalf of Alonso and Webber to overturn their punishment.

I strongly urge the Singapore government to act in this instance as we have to show the world Singapore is for car pooling and we will solve our transport woes (despite not being able to fire our transport minister), while at the same time, stand alongside the proponents of car pooling.

Singapore can stand idly and watch Burma burn, but we cannot allow this immoral act of punishing car pooling to come to pass.

Yours sincerely,
Conservative Petrolsexual
