MediaCorp actor Tay Ping Hui has expressed his disappointment with former Singapore President S R Nathan’s comment that there is no ‘Singaporean culture.’
Speaking at a Social Sciences Conference at the Singapore Management University, Mr Nathan said “Singapore will take a generation before it can build a Singaporean culture.”
In a tweet posted last night, Tay Ping Hui wrote:
“It is truly a sad day for Singaporeans. After 12 yrs in office, the ex- President can say that he does not think there is a SG culture.”

Mr Nathan is the longest-serving Elected President in the history of Singapore. Though he has relinquished his position, he is still widely respected by Singaporeans and has been gracing public events and giving talks at conferences.
