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

PAP East Coast GRC candidate Lim Swee Say said in Mandarin during his rally on Thursday night, Sept. 3, 2015, that he is grateful Singapore separated from Malaysia in 1965, or else we would still be Malaysian.

He also said before this statement that he is grateful that his father had taken a boat from China to Singapore, or else, he might be a Chinese citizen.

On both occasions, he said “Heng ah…”

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:

 

sian-half-auntie “His father should have stayed in China.”
Hui Jia Xiang, 44-year-old hydroponics farmer

 

sian-half-uncle “I don’t see how Lim Swee Say is a Singaporean benefits me as a Singaporean.”
Ben Di Ren, 62-year-old rag-and-bone man

 

happy-bird-girl “I wish I could also say ‘Heng ah’, but I realise PAP is still going to form the next government.”
Mei Qian Tu, 17-year-old barista
