After quitting SMRT, she has quit her blog too

After all the hype a year ago, it appears that former SMRT CEO Saw Phaik Hwa has abandoned her blog despite my "urging" her not to.

She has let the domain name of her blog,, expire.

Her last blog post was on June 1 last year about testifying at the public inquiry into the 2011 train breakdowns.

There were a total of five blog posts over three months. Started last March after she quit SMRT, the blog can still be found at

I guess she's now too busy being CEO of Auric Pacific Group. Hey, all that Sunshine bread doesn't bake by itself, you know?

Fortunately, Singaporeans adapted swiftly to her departure from SMRT and found someone else to blame for SMRT-related transport woes like the bus drivers' strike late last year.

EARLIER: ‘Isaw-isphy’ is a sphytty name for a blog

UPDATE: Former SMRT chief Saw Phaik Hwa to retire as Auric Pacific CEO. Maybe she'll return to blogging
