Singapore Tai Chi Chuan

Yin-Man; Yang Female

The latest NTUC Income VIVO Care 100 advertisement is quite interesting. Made me sit up to see if I heard wrongly.


When I saw it come on TV again last night I made sure to listen to it careful. Yup, there it is.

This morning I searched for it and found in on NTUC Youtube channel. Listened to it again and yup, there is no doubt about it.

Was it a genuine mistake? Or purposely done to test if viewers were paying attention? Or a strategy to make us talk about the advertisement?

Anyway, I had to keep a straight face when this sombre man came on and proclaimed he had ovarian cancer. Say what? Then the lady came on, teary faced and said she had prostate cancer. What? A case of man with a lady’s reproductive organs and a lady with a man’s package? Yin-man, yang female. Sounds like a title for a movie…..

Maybe in the end he is a she and she is a he!
