Now, before you even judge anything, do take note of this: this is a (very) one-sided story so far, and so unless Chua Enlai and his family have come out to explain their side of the story, treat this story as a lesson instead of making a quick judgement.
So here’s what happened: a Facebook post recently went viral, in which a Facebook user alleged that Chua Enlai’s father had hit him after an argument.
If the name sounds familiar, it’s because Chua is the guy from The Noose:
Viral FB Post That’s as Long as an Article
According to the Facebook post, which is accompanied by a video of the “attack” and an image, the Facebook user, Mr Cheong, was arguing with Chua’s father when Chua’s father turned aggressive and “used his body” to lunge at Mr Cheng.
Mr Cheng fell and was taken to the hospital.
The reason for the argument is unknown, but Mr Cheong claimed that they haven’t had been on good terms since three years ago, when Chua Enlai allegedly reversed into his car and drove off.
In fact, they were on such bad terms that physical fights nearly occurred between the two elderly.
Here’s the post:
Of course, you can watch the video and decide yourself if it’s indeed an “attack”…or just a Neymar.
So, What’s This Backstory?
Now, to understand more, you’d have to scroll through the profile of the Facebook user.
The dispute started in 2015; apparently, it’s alleged that Chua has reversed into his car and drove off. After Mr Cheong’s insurance company filed a civil suit, it was determined that Chua was at fault.
That sparked the beginning of a long conflict.
Apparently, if you’ve remembered, there was news about a house that has a “zoo” outside it. That belonged to Mr Cheong and had been there since 1993.
According to Mr Cheong, Chua’s family, who’s allegedly a tenant in the house, had made the complaint with “two kakis” about the “zoo”. Mr Cheong therefore had to remove them.
Mr Cheong’s List of Complaints
Other than those, Mr Cheong has been posting regularly on his Facebook profile, usually with images and videos against Chua’s father.
Most of them are lengthy and very angry.
But for us Singaporeans who are living in an urban jungle, what should we do when disputes like this occur?
One thing’s for sure: posting on Facebook most likely won’t solve the problem.
Your Neighbour is Always Wrong
“I’m an inconsiderable neighbour,” said no one ever.
Data shows that 70% of disputes are usually due to excessive noise since most of us live in flats. For that, you can simply talk to them.
If not, you can seek help from the Community Mediation Centre (CMC), whereby disputes can be resolved amicably without resorting to…violence or online shaming.
If that doesn’t help, it can be escalated to the Community Disputes Resolution Tribunal (CDRT), which is so “powerful” that they can order your neighbour (or you) to move out.
Just remember: there’s a solution for everything. It’s just a matter of whether you go for the easy one, or the best one.
