A video of a woman pasting advertisements at Block 211 Boon Lay Place, while getting confronted by a resident has been circulating online.

Stomper Ah Boy received the video through a WhatsApp group and alerted Stomp to it. 

In the video, the woman, dressed in a striped shirt, is seen pasting up notices promoting a moneylender. 

She was confronted by the resident, Mr Li, who asked her:

“Are you not taking these notices down?”

The woman remained undaunted and continued putting up the notices.

She told Mr Li, "catch me if you dare". 

She even struck a pose for Mr Li who was recording their conversation. 

When asked what her name was, the woman coolly told him:

“Tan Ah Kau.”

Mr Li tried to get her to say her real name, but she ignored him.

He also asked her why she was helping to paste up some these advertisements, as there was upcoming a paint job. 

According to Lianhe Wanbao, the incident happened on Monday (Oct 23) at around 1.30pm. 

Mr Li, 57, who stays in the block, was on his way home after a meal when he met the woman.

Said Mr Li:

“I saw her put up advertisements on each of the pillars.

“After placing up each notice, she would take a photo.

“I believe she was taking the photos so she can send them to her employer.

“She was blatantly vandalising public property, so I used my phone to record a video of her actions and asked her to take the notices down.”

The enraged Mr Li added:

“She was doing this in broad daylight.

“What’s to stop her from placing these advertisements on our doors directly the next time?”

According to the Land Transport Authority (LTA):

“Getting rid of illegal advertisements on our street infrastructure requires additional time and resources. 

“Besides marring our streetscape, those who paste such advertisements are also committing an offence.”
