Kallang Leisure Park bans entry to all NDP uniformed personnel

This is the kind of thing that makes your blood boil, especially if you have served national service for 2 or 2 1/2 years and spend part of that time doing NDP.

This sign was posted at the entrance of Kallang Leisure Park yesterday morning (4 July). It was National Day Parade Combined Rehearsal 3 day. Although the parade is held at The Padang this year, the mobile column need to form up at the carpark next to Kallang Leisure Park. Heard form some sources that it was raining in the morning and some NSF went into the mall to seek shelter. The wet uniform and muddy boots might have dirtied the mall, which caused the building management to paste the sign at their entrance.
This kinda stinks. Those guys are serving their nation service. They burnt their weekends for the nation’s birthday celebration. Instead of being nice to them and thanking them for their service, the building management ban them from entering like how some malls ban dogs.
If the soldiers dirtied the floor, get someone to clean it. Or even better, provide water at the entrance of the mall for them to clean their boots before entering. After all, NSF are their biggest group of visitors during NDP rehearsals.
It is disappointing to see the management of Kallang Leisure Park banning NDP uniformed personnel from entering. NSF deserved to be treated better.
