    Educated in 3 continents - Asia, US and Europe, PHD and former lecturer and she forgot to take the common sense module. If someone stood in front of a class of Sec 4 students and asked if the Sungei Road vendors can sell online, what do you think their response will be? And as MP she is representing people.

    This is something I noticed this PM does very differently from his predecessors, hold on to deadweight. So we have a bloated cabinet, ministries having 2 ministers, multiple MOSs and a PMO office with even more deadweight.

    Ask them to sell at flea market also doesn't make sense.
    Imagine a stall selling bohemian goods by millennials and next to it another stall sell old second hand goods.
    I give up

    The Govt is without a doubt a total fuckup in the way they handle the vendors after announcing the closure of the market three years ago. Either the fucker who is supposed to settle this with the vendors got posted out or someone had been sitting on it for the past three years hoping no one will say anything along the way and the vendors will all quietly fuck off after the closure.

    However what is more fuckup than the Govt are the extremist activists like Terry Xu, Tam peck Hoon, Woon Tien wei and fat fuck Kirsten han etc who cannot even agree among themselves and ended up creating multiple facebook pages, campaigns and petitions and tried to politicise the shit out of the closure of the market like what they did previously with Amos Yee.

    Yes, this is unusual. I also cannot understand why we cannot set aside a small corner of Singapore for these dying trade. I remember that SIA in the 80s got so fed with STPB in failing to protecting heritage look to attract tourist and seat revenue that they went and complained to MOF who contended a meeting with the Minister.

    They struggle because they have different agendas and their own pet projects. Some of them are into revisionist history because the people they interact with cannot handle giving up on their past. I read a recent TOC article where they revisited the separation of Singapore from Malaysia. Anyone who followed history will know that the Singapore cabinet preferred to part of Malaysia except for one man. The way the article was written it appeared to show they they discovered this by some scholarly analysis.

    These vendors make a meagre $20 to $50 a day. Have a heart. Rental income could be the reason why the government is clearing them.

    okay you win. Perhaps you can set up a company to conduct Internet awareness class. Prior to that lesson, maybe you should also conduct an English beginner class for the old folks. Then after that you can also sell the old folks a pentium i7 laptop. Huat ahhhh. Don't forget to teach the old folks how to access qoo10 to advertise their goods. 😀

    You go to any 1st world country and there are flea markets in nearly every town and city. Some have become institutions with tourists thronging these places. Many of them are manned by the elderly to pass away their time and earn a bit on the side. With the help of the authorities, the whole concept of a flea market can be reworked. If the location is needed for redevelopment, thats fine, move them on to the next location and take the opportunity to do the place up. I used to wonder why the Old National Stadium was always vacant when the place can be used for flea market on non-match days.

    If well established, better second-hand gems will become available.

    I can you that if a Minister decided to back a proper flea market, every plp will immediately support it, the prostitute press will write opinion profound pieces on how our leaders had the foresight to conceive these things.

    I used to visit this place and those in countries where I visit. I seldom buy anything and always end up buying street food. But as I walk around these stalls, lots of memories, some interesting items and some crazy stuff. Pleasant and much better than some tourist attraction where they make you run the gauntlet thru the souvenir shop.

    Bro, Singapore is unlike other 1st world countries. They speak one language. The elderly in those countries speak English. Our elderly cannot even string one sentence in english. That place is for local shoppers and occasionally some tourists.

    The same people are dead set to make another place a historical site despite the late owner (who is NOT my father ) well known wish to demolish it while at the same time demolishing a site like SR with well known historical value.
    Many reservist will remember how Sungei Rd safe their skin/wallets by providing them with cheap replacements for items they lost.

    Tourists go thru Little India, Arab streets, China town etc to see, smell and learn about people, their culture and their very existence. Its the experience. I being to one in Joburg where amongst the rows and rows of African vendors from the region, there was a Chinese Baba chap that was cooking and selling Beef Rendang, Nasi Lemak, Chilli Goreng Ikan etc> what a surprise. Held on Sundays and I wondered how a simple concept is so elusive to our Government.

    I have been to street food alley and flea markets in most countries. Is always how the government acknowledged their values in terms of economic growth. Remember Singapore used to have road side hawkers in the 70's and all were cleared. A big pity. Definitely bring back a lot of memories for me as baby boomers. When in KL, Taipei, Manila, HCMC, Hanoi, and in most Chinese cities, my preference is always to go and find street food. Rule with a heart and everything will be fine.

    I am glad the flea market will be cleared. They are peddling junk and they don't make enough to pay simple rent. Hence, they want to stay on that road indefinitely rent-free. Kick out the freebooters.
