At least they’re not wasting money

The last time Singapore tried to rename something, we failed spectacularly. There was no change of the name Marina Bay, and yet we spent $400,000 on public consultations and discussions. This utter wastage of public funds was even carried in international newspaper Agence France Presse.

Also, remember our now-demolished Budget Terminal? This…creative name was thought up by 15-year-old Jonathan Sng, who spent a few minutes of his recess to come up with it. And his reward? $2000 and a mobile phone.
