Myth 169 - World Class

As we relentless pursue being world class in every thing, we forgot that our people's income is not world class. Oops, I apologise for this mistake. Some are. What are the implications? World class means world class price tag. Period. If everything is world class, everything must be paid in world class dollars. Good things don't come cheap. The word 'world class' is becoming very disturbing to many Singaporeans. Many are getting nightmares hearing it. Singaporeans are not rejoicing that everything around them is world class. Shit, my mistake again. Some Singaporeans are frightened but many are looking forward to world class facilities and services. They can afford them. For those who cannot afford world class stuff, please snuff out. The most frightening development coming our way is World Class Transport System and you can expect world class fares.

If you cannot afford world class things, then just don't have them. No one is forcing you to have them. Some of us who can afford them will enjoy them, those of you who cannot - tough. What more do you want me to say? Just because you cannot afford them, does not mean that we who can afford should not have them too. Get real!!

you are absolutely right. those who cannot afford should give up the idea of taking first class transport.

then we can have a really world class transport system with world class people commuting in them

i hope you are a top decision maker and implement such policies all the way.

Hi Redbean,

You are right. Only world class people in Singapore can use things that appear to be world class.

Singapore is world class. The leaders are world class. The transport system is world class. The education system is world class. The ministers' salaries are world class. The ports are world class. The airport is world class. The ERP system is world class. The health system is world class. Shopping here is world class. National policies are world class. The national newspapers are world class. Our TV shows are world class. Our army is world class. Investment decisions are world class. Everything is world class, except the peasants.

By the way, I think that it is good there are world class people telling you how "world class" they are. It is good that the world sees how world people behave in your blog. It is so wonderful and world class.

Indeed, world class!
