Proof that times are bad in Singapore

You know times are bad in Singapore when a dude dressed up in ladies clothes, tries to rob a UOB branch in Geylang. Don't you just hate recession? From Channel NewsAsia:
According to a CISCO guard who pinned down the suspect, he already knew that something was wrong when the suspect entered the bank. He said the suspect was acting very suspiciously. Furthermore, he was wearing ladies clothes. After passing a piece of paper to the bank staff, the suspect turned around to face the security guard and warned him not to interfere. That was when the security guard pinned him down. CISCO security guard, Rosli MD Sa’ad, said: "The moment he turned to me, he said, ‘Don't be a hero. You got three minutes.’ The moment I pinned him down, the rest moved to the side. But I was very lucky as the staff also helped me in this situation."

"Don't be a hero. You got three minutes"

He must have been watching too many Hollywood movies.

This is indeed NEWS to me. I've been living in Singapore for 20 years and I've never come across a bank robbery here.

He must have been badly affected by the credit crunch and lost all his money in the stock market. No money to buy clothes, he has to steal a dress, wear it and rob a bank. Poor guy. I tell you Singapore is becoming a miserable place to live in.

its just plain stupid in singapore to rob the bank..even if he can get away from the bank, he will be stalled somewhere on the road very soon, or at best, get caught within the next 24-48 hours..

anyway this is not the only bank robbery in singapore, not very long ago, there was another one in Singapore too, the robber tried to rob MayBank. It was in the news too that time..
