Re: Singapore elderly?

The more mercenary the culture, the more problematic it is for those who are economically-unproductive to survive. I saw this coming for countries like Singapore and China. Where money is everything, and sometimes even more important than one's life. Ironically, the Confucian concept of filial piet...

Re: Good Coffee in Singapore?

I've picked up a taste for kopi-c kosong (coffee with evaporated milk and no sugar). I'd never drink it at home, but somehow it makes sense in a hawker centre. It helps me recover from that tired, hazy feeling like nothing else can. Anyway, I recommend Lam Yeo Coffee Powder Factory (328 Balastier Ro...

Re: Related to Emigration

Just to add, half of the Singaporeans that I know who have settled abroad are homosexual.

Of the young families that I know, some cite not wanting to put their children through the Singaporean education system.

Re: Related to Emigration

Re: Singapore elderly?

The fact is, if you see some of the old people selling tissues at hawker centres or even selling their bodies down Petain Road, suicide is a logical choice. It's coming to August and National Day. Watch out for a sepia-tinged weepy with a plinky-plonk piano soundtrack about an old man finding an old...

Re: One child v/s two

I am more of a computer guy and my daughter tries to pull me away to play with her. I play with her, but this is more like reluctant and I have to force myself. I think the question is whether you should've had one child, nevermind thinking of having another. I really hope you only posted this beca...

Re: My Extramaritial Affair - Need Advise

Everyone seems to be looking at this from a single angle: cutting off the woman you had an affair with, and not thinking about the wider implications for your marriage. Clearly if you were willing to have an affair with a Filipino domestic helper - who is probably not a great conversationalist that ...

Re: Arrested in Singapore for swearing at police officers

Hi all. I’m new to this forum and need some advice form anyone who knows the answer. Last night I was arrested for swearing at a police officer. I was a little drunk at the time so was not aware of my actions. To make things worse, I was told in my interview the following morning that I spat at the...

Re: Why do Singaporeans hate me?!?

Have you been to Korea before, and how were your experiences there? Generally speaking, I found Koreans to be racist. (I've never seen a bar in Singapore saying 'no black people,' because it will upset the local Korean customers, who are worried about contracting ebola). I think it's interesting tha...

Re: Kim Jong Un - Certainly looking for attention!

And Drumpf won't do nothing? Surgical strike ? I'm no fan of Steve Bannon but he is right about this. Bannon said, “There’s no military solution here; they got us. Until somebody solves the part of the equation that shows me that 10 million people in Seoul don’t die in the first 30 minutes from con...

Re: Cashless Society!

You're a pathetic cry-bully. Firstly, are you seriously suggesting that this isn't belligerent and highly patronising? Now I've used the same tone to speak to you, you've turned all Victorian schoolmarmish. 'I won't talk to you if you use that dreadful language!' you wag your bony finger. 'Now you'...

Re: Cashless Society!

I don't try to disingenuously minimize the disadvantages. These are the fact you are apparently oblivious of. Perhaps you should make some effort to address my points instead of trying to turn this discussion personal? And why instead? This is one whole package. The only disadvantage I can see are ...
