Three thoughts you must have had.

Residents staying in the 33-storey Housing Board development block of flats at Block 302A Woodlands Street 31 were stranded on Sunday evening after all three lifts broke down for about four hours until 10pm.

Many had to climb the stairs back to their unit.

The Woodlands Peak project was completed just last year for mostly elderly residents in 112 studio apartments. The remaining 110 units are two- and three-room flats.

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:

 

sian-half-auntie “This must be Workers’ Party’s and AHTC’s fault again.”
Zhe Dian Tui, 43-year-old technician

 

sian-half-uncle “There is no such thing as a blame culture in Singapore so this is just a learning process as the pain and regret of climbing up the stairs is punishment enough.”
Mei Yew Chuo, 67-year-old ex-civil servant

 

happy-bird-girl “Fortunately, this happened in a PAP ward so this makes it an isolated incident.”
Gugu Zi Bai, 18-year-old waitress

ERP system forever never breaks down in Singapore.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who enjoy taking public transport because cars are for rich people, are requesting that the CEO in charge of Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) to join SMRT.

This after the MRT train system broke down twice in one day last week and the Bukit Panjang LRT system completely failed to move on March 9, 2015, causing commuters to walk on the tracks.

One Singaporean, Didi Pai, said: “The CEO of ERP must be a very good leader because he cause ERP gantries to never break down before, forever working perfectly, beep beep beep, deducting money all year round, no problem.”

“He should teach SMRT CEO Desmond Kuek a few tricks on how to make the trains not break down.”

Other Singaporeans said CEOs of other organisations should also consider having a short chat with the SMRT CEO to exchange ideas.

Ho Seh Wan, a local, said: “I think the CEOs of GIRO and CPF should go and talk to the SMRT CEO.”

“GIRO and CPF damn satki one, whole year also work very well, very punctual, deduct money on the dot, never spoil or delay before one.”

 

Why SMRT cannot learn from ERP?

S’pore’s ERP named a technological marvel as it is the opposite of SMRT train system
