'Singlets, Shorts and Slippers' day' at Holland Village

SHE branded HDB heartlanders an "uncultured" lot and called a radio talk show to ask them to keep away from her upmarket Holland Village neighbourhood.

Just look at the way heartlanders dress, she said on 91.3FM's The Married Men Show on Wednesday morning.

Calling herself Samantha, she said: "They come in shorts and slippers and like, weird coloured hair. Yeah, and the heartlanders, people from like Ang Mo Kio, Yishun, Toa Payoh and like the nearby Bukit Batok... they come to our coffee shop, and dress like one kind, talk like one kind...

"Very uncultured, and no manners...

"Please stay where you are, I think you fit best there," she added.

And her brazen comments have upset netizens, many of whom have posted on The Married Men's Facebook page condemning her remarks.

One of them is even planning to hit back by asking people to go to Holland Village wearing only singlets, shorts and slippers - to make a statement.

On Thursday, Mr Gerald Tock, 31, created an event on Facebook called "1,000 peeps to Holland V in Singlets, Shorts and Slippers Day".

The computer game developer hopes that people will go to Holland Village from 11am to 2pm on April 9, a Saturday, to eat, make friends, and take photographs of themselves doing so.
