Facebook user Soh Chin Ong shared a picture of three women sitting side-by-side in the MRT, and commenters on the post are going ga-ga over it – about how it is a representation of tolerance in our multiracial Singapore. Soh captioned the picture: “I hate to state the obvious but let’s be grateful that we have this, and mindful that this is a precious thing.”
