Kpop star Alexander Lee Eusebio was caught in the smrt crisis. Here’s his story
It took me more than an hour to return home and this is the behind story.
Today, MRT(Metro) in Singapore had a problem (power shortage) so everyone was trying to grab a taxi. I was around Chinatown and since there was no taxi, I decided to take any bus to Orchard first. (Yes! I took a bus alone! LOL) I asked some random guy at the bus stop about the route and he was so NICE and HELPFUL. Afterwards, I went on the bus and asked the driver/uncle how much the fare was, and surprisingly, he just asked me to get in and sit, and I didn’t have to pay. I don’t care whether it is right or wrong for him to do so, but my heart felt so WARM. It is NOT about the money but his action.
THis uncle knew the situation about transporation shortage and was trying to help fix the situation. ISn’t this just so pleasant? After exploring the city alone, I really feel that Singaporeans are so nice and friendly and I like how they really think for their society/country. I was totally impressed. And this is definitely why Singapore is so strong and successful as one.
Anyway, so I reached the taxi stand in Orchard and waited with other people. Thought it was a long wait, I actually had a good time chatting with some people there. I am glad I extended my flight(was supposed to leave today) because I saw a different side of this beautiful country.
Singaporeans should be proud of your own country.
Happy SG50! Viva Singapore
