Dim Sum Dollies want you to "Love Your Ride"

Postby duriz » Fri Sep 24, 2010 9:24 am

"Train is coming, train is coming, train is coming...."
"Please Q up"
"Love Your Ride"

The next time you take a train, get ready to be entertained by the Dim Sum Dollies!

The bubbly threesome has been roped in by the Public Transport Council this year to be ambassadors to encourage more gracious behaviours on public transport. Adopting the slogan, ‘Love Your Ride’, the lovable dollies will sing jingle reminders such as ‘Move in’, ‘Please queue’ and ‘Give up your seat’ to all commuters.

These messages will adorn MRT stations, bus interchanges, bus-stops, and in trains and buses, to make travelling on public transport a more gracious experience! This initiative is a partnership with Land Transport Authority, SMRT, SBS Transit and SKM.

I feel amused but not in a charged-up-I-can't-wait-to-take-the-train way. In an embarrassed way 'cos it is so corny. :oops: :siao:

That jingle gets on my nerves. It makes my hair stand. Urgh!! :frustrated:

Yesterday, saw some tourists looking surprised and chuckling among themselves when they heard it.
