Ok I take back my words that our authorities don’t enforce the law. They do they really do – like fineing this school girl $400.00 for charging her phone in the MRT station using one of the wall sockets in the station.
Frankly I didn’t know MRT people are so freaking on. I seen people drinking and eating in the train and nothing happened. Once, a lady in SMRT uniform walked past a girl eating inside the train and she didn’t even pause in her steps. Maybe it is a new culture now. With all the fines they getting for the breakdown, look for extra income from other sources. So maybe the next time somebody eat or drink, or get into a full train, they will get fined!
Also, if you happen to be a trade show vendor, better think twice setting up a stall in Hougang area. Chances are if you are in the Workers Party’s area, you will get fined for illegal hawking, hawking without a licence or maybe just being in an unauthorised area.
Anyway, whatever it is, just don’t get on the wrong side of our petty authorities! If you do, don’t get caught and if you have to pay a fine or give away money, give it in an ang pao to somebody who will appreciate it.
Happy New Year! 恭喜发财
