Here's an extract from the article... Note the bold and especially the red portion.
Agreeing that the rebuke in Parliament was “harsh”, MP Charles Chong noted that Mr Tan didn’t “brag” about how expensive the trip was in the article.
“Maybe it made lesser mortals envious and they thought maybe he was a little bit boastful,” he said. “Would people have taken offence if his wife (a senior investment counsellor at a bank) had paid for everything?”
Bloody hell... can someone (maybe Mr Teo who is at least trying hard) give Mr Charles a tight cock slap on his mouth. More damage control coming...
