Singaporeans from all walks of life have suddenly become richer by at least 10 to 20 percent.

This after a background check conducted by the authorities discovered that the individual featured prominently on all current Singapore notes being printed and put into circulation is not Yusof Ishak, the first president of Singapore, but his friend.

This check comes hot on the heels of the boo-boo where Singapore’s first President Yusof Ishak’s name was misspelled twice as “Yusok Ishak” on the commemorative SG50 note packaging, an event that can only happen once every 50 years.

As expected, these stringent checks have caused alarm bells to go off across Singapore as Singaporeans panicked that such errors are costing them.

One Singaporean, Sng Zhua Jee, said: “This is a smart way to increase Singaporeans’ net worth overnight as notes issued by the bank that have errors always fetch more money than the value that is printed on the note.”

“We really should have discovered this error earlier as it would have made us all richer.”

At press time, the authorities said they are printing stickers with the correct photo of Yusof Ishak to paste on the notes to correct the wrong image

It is really once every 50 years.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who see the irony in things, are nodding their heads appreciatively and agreeing to the fullest extent with one another.

This after Singapore’s first President Yusof Ishak’s name was misspelled twice as “Yusok Ishak” on the commemorative SG50 note packaging and they agree this sort of spelling error should only happen once every 50 years.

One Singaporean, Wu Shi Nian, said: “I find it generally very timely. Because this kind of things only happen once every 50 years and it happened right smack on Singapore’s 50th year of existence.”

“This is really like ponding in Singapore. Once every 50 years.”

Other Singaporeans concur that the unexpected accidental error has lent extra significance to Singapore’s 50th anniversary year.

Another Singaporean, Yew Yi Shi, said: “I think it just made the SG50 celebrations all the more meaningful.”

“This error is really very representative of Singapore as a whole. We generally get the macro things right, have the right intention in place and be good at planning and doing the big things.”

“But when it comes to the small things, we muck it up and let it rain on our parade and sabotage ourselves.”

“This is really a case of how when it comes to the matters of the heart, the small things that make people feel special, we don’t get it right still.”

“Very timely and meaningful reminder for Singapore this SG50.”
