It were Singaporeans, who in first instance (as pastime entertainment while seated at the terrazzo) pointed out quite a few professionals, walking up and down with every time new clients in tow on Clarke Quay. I have seen in following visits to Clarke Quay, quite a few girls or transvestites walking...

Sorry for not being clear: I mend the combination of these factors that leads to a low birthrate. I edited it now.

I am blaming the following factors combined for the low birth rate. -the clear cut presence of prostitution: I mean the Singapore kids see too much. You have to keep kids stupid and romantic to have a higher birthrate. Now when kids go out, they see prostitutes soliciting in areas like Clarke Quay. ...

23 is indeed very young and yes you will have a legal obligation. Talk about it how she sees life after a baby because going out, expensive clothes, body care and hanging with friends is then out of the window. Friends won't stay cause babies and such is not in their own agenda and gets in the way ...

Come on, that is just one person misbehaving. Do you know how many weird people walk around on this planet?!? Since not all her friends did that, she can't say the Chinese are such and such..

Oh boy. Contact her and your parents especially if you both are from a western country so you all can talk her out of it. Because this is quite a lot for a 23 year old. Tell her and your parents honestly that you feel desperate and that you are so afraid that you can't afford the babies life cost an...

Something must have got lost in translation as you seemed to be linking the necessity to force common courtesy, with multi-culturalism.

So he is saying that governments who have to force common courtesy by law instead out of human nature are ruling people without any quality. Hmm afcourse ideal-wise governments should not need to that. However on the practical side it is necessary in Singapore since there are so many different cult...
