“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.
