If COMPLAINING’s a National Sport

YESTERDAY, we shared a story about a joker, PJ know-your-rights WONG – the one who took to Facebook on a “Know Your Rights” campaign against EUGENE-just-doing-his-job-NG, an ICA officer who randomly asked to scan his bags at Airport Security.

Story went BOOM and we are pleased to report most Singaporeans are rational about it, (yes. you guys are cool, go on, give yourselves a kampong hug) most placing security over service in their arguments.

inhale… less haze, more coffee


Our faith in humanity was restored, and we allowed ourselves a chuckle at some of the words netizens used to describe this PJ Know-Your-Rights Wong. We started to think this world isn’t so bad after all and we made ourselves a nice cup of coffee, and began to search for a rainbow in the hazy sky.

But then this story about a Miss TRACY flat-too-small TAN rolled into our newsfeed.

Dear Readers, if your overseas friends don’t believe complaining is our National Sport, show them this.

The room is soooooooo small, it can’t even fit a full size camera that can take a full sized photo of a human.




And we’re like…

oh man… this is some expensive coffee I’ve just wasted on you


Doesn’t take a genius to tell me that the house won’t fit 7!

So, here’s the story in summary: Lady buy house. Lady no visit da house. Lady did not cross reference the dimensions she was given. Lady see house for first time. Lady shocked. Lady planned to fit 7 people in there. Now that cannot happen. Lady disappointed. Lady makes news.

Let’s say it together shall we?

Meanwhile, our friends in Hong Kong, who actually live in shoeboxes, are like…

Lady, if this complaint works and you get your money back, we’d like to see you pull off the following:

  1. Order Chicken Rice but ask for no chicken, no rice
  2. Ask for a tall latte but in a venti cup, and get the fella fill it up to the brim.
  3. Buy a real shoebox and make news again by sleeping in it.
  4. Buy a car and return it cos they sent you the exact car you bought.
  5. Cook 2min instant noodles in 1min

That is all.

  • The show flat was seemingly much larger than what it is. The developer was not honest. There were stickers on the ground. This gave viewers the misconception that the space area is much bigger. That was why ms tan was so angry.

    Also, the reporter did not convey the right message. She has taken things out of context. As a friend, i need to speak up for her.
