Transport Minister that takes the Bus

Singapore's Transport Minister

I've been wanting to post this up for a while. This is a picture of Singapore's transport minister, Mr Lui Tuck Yew, taking their very own bus.That makes perfect sense because if he is assigned to improve the transportation system in Singapore, he must damn well be a user.

Just like, why would you believe a real estate agent about stock market advice? If you want to become a real expert at something, you literally need to get your hands dirty on that thing.

What about our own transport minister? Mr Kong Cho Ha, when are you going to lead by example? The ball is in your court.

Perhaps I am wrong, but I believe all the ministers in Singapore do not have funky titles like Datuk, Tan Sri, Datuk Seri or any other kind of funky title in front of their names. It probably has something to do with how they are actually doing their jobs properly. Perhaps that is why they can bring themselves to take the public transport like the rest of us. But I could be speculating.
