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

President Tony Tan hosted a thank you reception at the Istana on Aug. 19, 2015, for the organisers and participants of this year’s National Day Parade (NDP).

This year’s parade featured more than 7,000 participants.

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:

 

sian-half-auntie “‘Thank you’ is easy for you to say since you were there for only two hours.”
Kam Seah, 43-year-old courtesy campaign organiser

 

sian-half-uncle “If he thinks saying ‘thank you’ to everyone else makes up for the fact his security staff stopped a young boy from shaking hands with him, he’s wrong.”
Mai Cham Xiong, 63-year-old debt collector

 

happy-bird-girl “It is not the several thousand participants who thanked President Tony Tan because he obviously didn’t do anything but show up at the parade and look out of place.”
Mei Ren Ai, 17-year-old idealist
