Singapore, we must learn from the wisdom of our pioneer generations before it’s too late – when our landfill saturates and before they disappear. In the blood of these elderly vendors flows frugality and industry which we sing about yet we do not care to honour. The nation-builders and pioneer vendors sell reused goods for they do not like waste and value things, and not merely for profit-making like those in the modern malls.
If you don’t believe, just head down to the market and chat with them. You’ll learn some good old values and wisdom.
“Why does this market have to be disbanded? Why? What is bad about this market? This market attracts tourists and protects the environment. There are so many old, used goods. If thrown away, it is a waste! Our market is a market that promotes environmental protection. We are not against the government. We are requesting our government. We are not against, we are requesting.”
