    • dun we think things are over calibrated, over precise, over balanced or even over focussed here? it really makes a meal over cooked.....

      their intentions may be right....but the officials are overreacting  or over emphasize ..perhaps becos of getting credits to sustain their job....

      just like employees trying to boot lick or show off to their bosses with new funny ideas to keep their job....but affecting all 

      i coin such strange political phenomenon as "KPI" policies....meanings churning ideas (whether or not sensitive to the people) to score points for their year end appraisal by their big boss u know who

    • drawing a snake is enough.....still adding legs to it.... so the picture of a beautiful snake becomes a lizard...or an iguana... get it?

      Here is the catch.

      You think the singaporean hindus will complain? no they won't, i tell you why.

      Most of them will go across the causeway and do their thaipusam. Over the causeway, totally no restriction.

      Which why, before all these rule there are already some singapoeans going there to do.

      So, with these new rules, more numbers they are going over there to the thaipusam.

      what happens when more singaporeans go over there and do? here no people, no longer a tourist attraction.

      Then only the people who set the rules will cry. mark my words.

      The usual ultimatum applies.

      Accept the limitations or no Thaipusam.

      Without a police permit, without traffic control and diversion, without police officers controlling the crowd, how to hold Thaipusam.

      HEB would know how to nod the head, without any arms being twisted.

      since when does the people who set the rules ever cry?

      they are too busy spending their time plotting against the opposition, and thinking of ways to earn more money.

      they would they care about tourism, when there's the 2 IRs to do all the job of attracting the moneyed foreigners.
