I admit I’m addicted to the Singapore Seen section on Stomp. While they bill it as a lofty site for citizen journalism, it has turned into a portal showing the ugly side of us all living together on this tiny island.
Public transportation woes, maid troubles, anti-foreigner diatribes, aaaggghhh!
Is this country really debating whether an able-bodied person should let an elderly or pregnant commuter take the priority seat on public transportation? Isn’t the answer obviously “OF COURSE?”
The government has run campaigns to encourage kindness and graciousness. I’m not sure what the results have been, but it seems many folks are motivated to take action only if there is a concrete payoff.
So us here at Standing Sushi Bar are taking our sushi sensibilities and wading into the teeming, seething mass that is the Singapore public. Our goal? Encourage people to be kind – it will make Singapore more pleasant for all!
We’re sending our ninjas out across the streets, trains, and buses of Singapore. Armed with these kindness cards, if they see you doing something nice then you get free sushi! Give up your seat on the MRT, hold the elevator door open, pick up some litter… no act of kindness is too small.
At Standing Sushi Bar, it pays to be kind.
