NTU shuttle buses play Mandarin songs

The NTU shuttle buses are indirectly paid for by the fees of all students. Why is it that buses that are driven by Chinese drivers have Mandarin songs played over the stereo?

Isn't that discriminatory? I am going to shoot an email to the student union and if nothing is done about it ...... STOMP will hear from me.

if you apply to drive the buses, you can play whatever songs you want.
Sure boh? What if Gurmit Singh's daughter boarded the bus and heard a song full of vulgarities?

then you expect them to play something they don't understand when they drive the bus for the entire route multiple times a day and cater to all students, majority chinese, by playing "whatever language you deemed appropriate" for the short ride of 10mins meh?

P/S I am not a bus driver in NTU hor

Don't think student union can have any control over the songs playing.

Hhaa.. You're very funny.

Why do you care about the well-being of NTU bus drivers only? Shouldn't you care about our SBS and SMRT bus drivers too by telling SBS and SMRT to install radios so that the drivers can enjoy themselves?

In fact, why stop at bus drivers? Employees of every company must demand that radios be played at their workplace so that they can be motivated to work.

LOL... If employees can work without listening to music, why can't drivers do the same?

If your workplace allows you to listen to music, by all means go ahead but do not cause inconvenience to others. Hey... have you heard of a wonderful invention called an earpiece?

Btw, so what if the MAJORITY of the passengers are Chinese?? That doesn't give you the right to think it is correct to have Mandarin songs played. If you think you're correct, then please tell our govt to make all road signs in Mandarin because Singapore is predominantly Chinese after all.

What a stupid racist you are.

Why you didn't tell ZacharyA to not be a Chinese Chauvinist?

care about NTU drivers only? cos I chance upon a thread with Something having a problem with NTU drivers cos of the choice of music being played?

sorry, but maybe its some act, not something, definitely not somebody.

I've already done something about it by emailing NTU and they said they will tell their bus operator about it.

I don't need STOMP to raise the issue and I regretted posting the issue here because it occurred to me that not only is EDMW a racist section, even this section has racists.

Racist? Yes, you are because you reasoned that it is okay for them to play Mandarin songs as the MAJORITY of the passengers are Chinese. Your reasoning is illogical.

Last I checked, Singapore's official language is English. If you don't like the problem I am raising, it just proves that you are a racist or just a Chinese chauvinist.

Bus drivers cannot afford earpieces?
Must complain to MOM so that their salaries are increased.

You think I've got nothing better to do than trolling?
Do I have a history of trolling?
Check my past posts.

You lost the argument so you call me a troll?
What a loser.
