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

Let’s move on, pedestrians say to themselves.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who know for a fact there is no more blame culture in Singapore, are saying they have moved on.

This after they saw a railing built across a footpath in Woodlands that prevents pedestrians from walking across.

One Singaporean, Mei You Chuo, said: “Whoever did this is absolutely right. This is what Singapore needs as a First World nation.”

“We need more of these railings. In fact, they should extend the railing and build it across the road as well.”

Other locals said this railing must have been built with good intentions in mind and it is the mere mortals who do not understand why this is so.

Another local, Mei Wen Ti, said: “This is a good deed and an oversight.”

“It is a learning experience. We must move on. Literally.”

“And there is no need to reveal the identities of those who did this.”
