    I simple do not understand how the mistake can be overlooked. Some how those people who verify the packaging print did not bother to check properly or unsure about it. They must have thought the spelling was correct in order for it to be missed. MAS apologizing, first time and in this critical period too, very embarrassing indeed.

    Grammar error in your sentence. 'I simply do not understand' rather than 'I simple do not understand'... Hope this helps.

    It should have been "There is a grammatical error in your sentence.".

    Lucky the spelling error is not on the dollar note itself! That will be the mother of all mistakes.

    Common guys ... MAS should not be looked upon too harshly. They were following past examples.

    One is a full stop and the other is Pi Sai (as required by English grammar).

    Better English is: "I saw wrong in your sentence."

    I believe those persons in charge of this project have taken the printing requirements very lightly, the additional flaw on the unintended spacing was another unacceptable overlook for such a major SG50 project. Who knows, perhaps the add space was intended to be that way.
