After a breakdown of the Circle Line on Thursday and the North-South line yesterday; SMRT scored a magnificent hat trick with another breakdown on the North-South line this morning. Check out the Twitter hashtag, #SMRTruinslivesto learn of the latest news development. SMRT is on a winning streak; there may be more breakdowns to come.
My friend and fellow blogger, Kevin, made this tribute video for SMRT to celebrate their victory in continuously ruining people’s lives for three days in a row. It is sung to the tune of the Christmas classic, “Jingle Bells” to go with the festive season. Enjoy:
Btw, do check out the fantastic double SMRT headline news this evening on both our Chinese evening papers:
If you are interested to find out more on how #SMRTruinslives, reports, videos and pictures are available via omy.sg below:
“Ms Saw is an ardent practitioner of taiji and sits on the Council of the Singapore Jian Chuan Tai Chi Chuan Physical Culture Association as President and as Vice President on the Executive Committee of the International Wu Style Tai Chi Chuan Federation. She is also appointed as Governor for Singapore and Malaysia for the international body of Wu’s Tai Chi Chuan Academy as well as 3rd Vice Chairman of Singapore Wushu Dragon & Lion Dance Federation.”
In today’s news, SMRT CEO Saw Phaik Hwa apologised to commuters for the five-hour long train disruption on yesterday evening.
Ms Saw promised that SMRT would spare no effort to prevent a recurrence of Thursday’s incident, and will look into the incident management plan and crowd management.
She also said that she would consider calls by some for resignation to take responsibility.
I am sure Ms Saw and her team at SMRT are going through a tough period now, working hard to improve our public transport system.
Nonetheless, a little humour won’t hurt to lighten the tension Ms Saw is facing (this blog post is obviously written tongue-in-cheek). I am sure she knows the right and fair things to do after a thorough investigation of the incident.
@danielweijie: Circle Line yest n North South Line today, Singapore Pools now accepting bets for East West Line to fail tmr.
Also, do check out this epic picture my colleague, Bill Loh took in a cab while on his way home today:
Now you know why Comfort Delgro and all the taxi companies were not afraid of falling revenues when they raise their fares a week ago. They just have to wait for opportunities like this when SMRT fail (TWICE, within a week right after the fare hike).
I attended 纵贯线 (Super Band)‘s press conference on 31 May, two Sundays ago. This “super heavy-weight” band, comprising of four of the most talented singer/composer in the Chinese pop scene were in town to promote their upcoming concert and also to grace a SMRT Circle Line event.
Below are some photos I took at the event. It was super crowded that day at Bishan MRT Station where the event was held. After greeting their fans on stage, the four of them promptly proceed to a MRT cabin for a media interview conducted in a moving train. They returned back to the stage again after the press interview to autograph a giant billboard and then went to look around the new Circle Line station.
