Singaporeans from all walks of life who like to take the MRT train because cars are for rich people have come out to applaud train faults and breakdowns.

This after train services on the North-South Line were disrupted between Yishun and Marina South Pier in both directions for more than two hours on Wednesday morning, Nov. 25, due to a power fault, from as early as 6am.

However, this was not something to be frowned upon.

One Singaporean, Man Man Lai, said being held up was a blessing instead: “Whenever there is a train fault or breakdown now, I take it as a cue to take things slow.”

“It is a good time to stop and smell the roses and not be constantly on the move and in a rush to get from place to place.”

Other Singaporeans said they are also very supportive of a slower pace of life.

Jin Jian Kang, another local who has experienced numerous train faults so far, said: “Having to slow down to a crawl is good for my health.”

“Especially in this 70 percent mandate climate, there’s no point feeling bitter and angry anymore.”

“Everything is awesome. Everything is cool when you’re part of a team.”

Singaporeans from all walks of life who like to take the MRT train because cars are for rich people have come out to applaud train faults and breakdowns.

This after a train fault in Clementi held up thousands of commuters heading for work on Thursday, Oct. 15 morning on the East-West MRT line.

However, this was not something to be frowned upon.

One Singaporean, Man Man Lai, said being held up was a blessing instead: “Whenever there is a train fault or breakdown now, I take it as a cue to take things slow.”
