Dear MOE,

我看了23-3-09新明日报的报道:就算小贩们通过议员陈情, 还是不能网开一面。
我想,也许此刻我写这封信来为这些小贩求情也是多余的。但是,我还是坚持写了,因为,这事关乎到这些老人家的生计问题,我希望,贵局在处理这件时时,可以更加包容和具备伸缩性,更加人性化一些。

国家环境局今日召开记者会, 解释事情的始末.
发言人说, 其实这10名小贩, 从一开始就不能在乌节路营业, 他们自称巳在该处五六年, 就等于五六年来一直是违例经营……… 环境局重申, 就算小贩们通过议员陈情, 还是不能网开一面. 这是因为衔头小贩的人数太多, 会导玫以下情况恶化:
1. 食物和环境卫生问题
2. 衔头的拥挤和阻塞.
3. 在乌节路租店面的冰淇淋商店生意受影响, 因为他们的租金比每年120元的执照费来得高許多。
===========================================

每每看到这些关于老人生计的问题,看到他们在制度条例下的无助和无奈,我的内心是一阵刺痛。现看到贵局重申,就算小贩们通过议员陈情, 还是不能网开一面。

在此呼吁环境局要网开一面, 修改条例让这些老人家继续在乌节路自食其力,也为创建一个温馨的社会尽力。因为,关爱老人,善待老人,体恤老人,就是一个国家体现人文关怀的至高表现。

Thanks and Regards

Translated by daughter(16yrs old) of  小六:

Whenever I see issues pertaining to the elderly citizens having problems trying to make a living with their own efforts, my heart pricks with the knowledge of their helplessness and frustration under those rules and regulations. Now that NEA has made a stand, that even though if those hawkers were to appeal to their MPs, there cannot be any exception made.
I do know that perhaps my appeal will be redundant. Nevertheless, I have to persist in appealing as this concerns the livelihood of the elderly citizens. I hope that NEA will exercise some degree of accommodation and flexibility in handling such matter, dealing with them with more humanity.
I hereby appeal to NEA to make an exception in this matter to allow the elderly citizens to make their own living in Orchard Road. A country would achieve its highest sense of social graciousness and responsibility when it can show care and concern towards their elderly citizens, treating them with kindness and compassionate understanding.

Thanks and Regards

  1. 新加坡这么多年来就已灌输了美丽城市的高帽,城市化的代价就是以弱肉强食,大鱼吃小鱼的经济模式来操控,你有钱有实力投标,达到他们的要求,就让你在那开业,老人家没钱没实力,对城市发展收入没贡献,也只能靠边站咯。。 要帮老人就得找杜先生或明先生来搞大型的慈善活动,风风光光,让大人物放光彩,让明星大展才华,让有关当局也占光,只要LAW By LAW ,交足费用,益了官局也益了杜/明的口袋。。最后穷苦的老人还是打回原形。。在新?No Money No Talk !他们要的是世界级的标准,人情味在经济学体系的国家,字典找不到啦。。。 还是叫这些老人家努力的在家等待“ 收”红包吧,那选举之日就只要会“勾对人” 咯。。 就不怕没饭吃了。。。 还出来做什么工?挡当局的财路?这些粗活就留给外劳就OK 咯
