  • You just don't get it, do you? Prohibitions will not work because it's impractical to enforce. You need to win the belief of the people. This past year however, we see a rising tide of cynicism as menteris and bangsawan folks do as they please disregarding SOPs. You're not going to win this battle

  • Open house can only happen when visitors are allowed. Isn't this part of the announcement misleading? 15 is a big number to gather in a house. What more condos and flats, where a few houses are in a small area.
