“Singapore shouldn’t be like children, in such a tizzy.” Said Indonesia Coordinating Minister for People’s Welfare Agung Laksono, commenting on the haze issue.
It is very hard to love thy neighbour with champions like this abang.
I did an online search on him. Other than being a minister, Laksono was a co-founder of Adam Air, a now defunct commercial airline, which was closed down after a series of accidents.
His credentials are pretty stellar indeed. When a person of such high moral standing scolds us, Singapore, we should be ashamed of ourselves for being so childish, constantly whining about a little bit of hazardous haze! Shame on us!
Fellow Singaporeans, if you are sorry for your childish behaviour and would like to offer the honourable Mr Laksono a sincere apology, you can contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org
Here is his office address, fax and telephone numbers via ASEAN website if you wish to write him a snail mail or visit him personally to apologise:
