For the fetish freaks – yes, it’s going to be washed. And no, it’s not going to be pre-worn by a stewardess. I have a feeling that the design is going to remain unchanged.
2.) NTUC membership card
Industrial harmony is built firmly on the peace between business, workers and the government. What would this landscape be like in 50 years? If there are going to be more strikes and disputes, the relationship would erode.
Long after the link points have expired, this card would serve as a good reminder of what we have enjoyed so far.
3.) Bottle of NEWater
Who knows what will happen with the water agreements between Malaysia and Singapore by then… and I wonder if anyone would like to taste this water after 50 years!
4.) N95 mask
What will happen in the next lap? Will there be worsened haze, so much so that we’ll need chemical masks instead? Or would Indonesia have burnt themselves out?
5.) ERP in-vehicle unit
Nobody loves this. It should come with a little dagger stabbed into it. By 2065, we’ll definitely have had an overhaul of the ERP system – most probably tracked and priced via GPS. Or maybe cars would have been made redundant by then and we marvel at how we used to fret over this thing called “congestion”.
