t Double Yellow's Musings: Singaporeans are a <s>Resilient</s> Blind Lot
The warped mind of Double Yellow craves for humor everyday. His daily dose comes from The Straits Times, The Sunday Times, Today, Channelnewsasia, etc. He also thinks that because of this preamble, this blog will never get featured in the local media.

Singaporeans are a Resilient Blind Lot

As most of you know by now, we are going to have a mock terrorist attack on our MRT trains and bus interchanges. I think this is a good exercise to ensure that all our operating systems are in place. It is also to make certain that Singaporeans are resilient to such incidents. We need Singaporeans to go about their normal lives unaffected by such events.

The latter part I think we dun have to worry…

For one, when there is a dead body a foot away from us, we just continue to eat. More recently, there was a violent man on a bus with a pair of shears (The Straits Times, 5 Jan). A passenger confronted this man and wrote this letter to the newspaper…



When I asked the driver to call the police, he did nothing and went back to his seat. When I made the same request to the passengers around me, no one responded.

I am also dismayed that the passengers ignored my plight.

Even if King Kong came to Singapore, we would be oblivious to its existence until such time the gorilla decides to have an ad campaign and our local newspapers run a front page story.
