So after the trail run, SMRT decided to scape the controversial announcement of station name in Mandarin. The reason they gave was to cater to our senior citizens who do not understand English.
Come on, stop all the bull shit. For our elderly ? Really ? Last time
when PAP ban dialects, do they care for our seniors who do not speak
nor understand Mandarin ? NO! Our grandpa and grandma are expected to
pick up Mandarin if they do not want to be isolated in their homeland.
The truth be told, it is likely to cater for the increasing population of mainland Chinese here.
