Stinky Lorry

My camera wasn't fast enough, hence the pink sky
What is this lorry carrying?

Do you have any clue?

Yep. Maggots

Xiaxue hits on Handicapped people

Well, she did it again, and this time, the handicapped people were not spared. Below is the excerp from her article:

My brother went to the toilet, and he said that he was behind walking behind this man who also wanted to use the loo.

The man stopped at the handicapped toilet instead of the normal male toilet, because well...

1) it is nearer afterall
2) maybe he shares my love for handicapped toilets because they are so freaking spacious and usually has your own mirror and wash basin! Coolness!

He was really damn fucking suay coz he pulled open the toilet door, and, believe it or not, there was really a handicapped person inside.

A male handicapped person, who was using the toilet.

I don't know what the fuck is this person's problem, but he shouted at the innocent man who opened his door:

"You come inside here for what, you are not even handicapped!" and etc scoldings.

Woah, woah! HOLD ON DUDE. You mean only handicapped people can use handicapped toilets?

Didi was smiling away and telling his story as if it is very funny (which it is lar, if your point is to laugh at that suay man), but I was really quite pissed off because this is the second time I heard a story about handicapped people scolding others for using their toilets.

Another one was my friend who was using a cineleisure handicapped toilet... When he walked out, he was severely lectured by a man who was wheel-chair bound, the latter chiding him for making him (latter) wait.

I don't know if it is the same grumpy, crazy person who did these two scoldings, but if it is not, then it seems a little too much of a coincidence.

When I expressed that this siao-eh (as an individual) was ridiculously unreasonable, my brother said, "No, the man shouldn't have used the handicapped toilet what, it says on the door that it is for the handicapped."

How come people have this notion that only the disabled can use facilities for the disabled?

*Roll eyes*

So tell me ... our government spent millions of taxpayers' money to build so many facilities for the physically disabled, and only they are allowed to use it?

Oh, excuse me for going down the slope instead of the stairs, will you? I shouldn't have. MRT lifts - don't use it, cannot use it. Use the escalator instead.

WTF is this?

Sure, if I SEE that you are physically disabled, and you need to use the handicapped toilet, then yes, obviously I will let you use it and go use a normal toilet.

But the man my brother saw didn't even know there was a person inside! And if you didn't lock your own bloody door, it's your problem and stop scolding others for your freaking mistake!

As far as I am concerned, you have a physical disability - and that is where you have a disadvantage. Your bladder is working fine isn't it? So you wait, just like normal people do, when there is a queue for the toilet. The rest of us queue up to use a toilet - I don't see why the disabled should be any different.

Don't even go near the issue of handicapped parking lots. That is different, because waiting for a parking lot is not a matter of 2 minutes.

Pissed with unreasonable people. What pisses me off more is when the society at large condones bad behavior when it comes from supposedly piteous people. So what, handicapped have the rights to be unreasonable meh? If I ever break my leg (choy!) I think I shall use my crutch to anyhow whack anyone who comes near my MRT lift.

When some person says I am being violent, I cry and say he is bullying a cripple, then everyone will automatically be on my side.

And her defense:

p/s: Because this entry contains controversial material, I will moderate comments. I don't want people to distort my words, nor baselessly go on attacking handicapped people and have me take the blame for instigating it. Take note that I wasn't criticising the disabled - I was only talking about those two people, as individuals. For all I know, they may have just broken a leg and are not permenantly disabled.

You can yak about how Xiaxue does not allow bad comments etc, but I think you are just being dense.

Let me give you an analogy: If you come to my face and say "You are a whore!" should I just smile and let you continue saying it? NO. I'll possibly slap you. The same reason applies - I don't see why I should allow pointless comments just insulting me to be written here on my blog for others to see it. Just doesn't make sense to me.

If you have constructive criticism though, go ahead and write it, I promise to publish it.

And yes, from today onwards I will occasionally turn off and on the moderating. I won't say when, because basically it won't affect good-willed people, and it will deter trolls and spammers. Good day!

What she did was really below the belt. From her post, it showed the maturity of her thinking and how she was brought up. If a person just stumbled onto her blog for the first time, they would indirectly come to a conclusion that this is how Singaporean behaves and thinks. No doubt it will create more traffic to her blog and make her (in)famous. After reading the first paragraph, a lot of angry people would become angry and then they start to skip a word or two, which, in the end, read what they wanted to believe.

This is a shame because she is also endorses other products such as Kimage Hair Salon,
Voxy Nail Potion and LocalBrand. Now, because of such remarks, a lot of people would shy away from these companies. And a lot of people also would shy away from anyone related to her. Why?

An infuriated reader would come to this emotional conclusion:

Xiaxue has a thing against the diasbled, so these companies she represents also has a thing against the disabled

Minutes go by and the anger swells up to a predicted conclusion:

Boycott the products the insensitive girl endorses

By then, everyone (News in Internet spreads very fast) has read this and it would spark into a dangerous fire, which is even more serious than her comments about Malaysia.
