This is my contribution to your site. I am not sure if this is the right avenue for me to send my contributions to you. Anyways, see attached pictures for kids playing on MRT trains and swining around on the grab hooks? (what do you call them?) as if they are playing on monkey bar.

THE MOST RIDICULOUS thing is that their grandmas and i think a PRC maid did not stop them from playing. they just looked on and even told the kids not to congregate and play around one grab pole, for there is an empty one next to it....

Shame on them, and on those old aunties!

Yours sincerely, Terence Heng aka millionaireterence

P.S. The kids were trying to pronounce "Changi Airport" and they ended up saying "China Airport"... and the youngest amongst them is abt Pri 2, and the oldest about Pri 5... and they cannot pronounce "Changi"?? Failure in our local education system or what?

Watch Monkeys in Train Video

MING comments:
Thanks for the post, terence. Yes in fact we do see more Monkeys on the Trains than Snakes on the Planes. These are still alright since they are really young, i have seen young adults (Sec 3-4 wearing school uniform) doing acrobatic stunts on the North-east SMRT line. Not knowing how ridiculous they look swining on the handlebars, putting their legs up the poles.

Its cute when your kids play in public - but NOT at the expense of other people. And it is extremely dangerous to be playing on the train! You may run into me and i'll feed you peanuts if you want to be a monkey. While you're eating the peanuts, i shall imitate the announcement service in 4 languages "eating and drinking is not allowed in the train, thank you for your cooperation". Then later accuse your parents for bringing animals onto the train.
