Another Angmoh in trouble!

I cannot post the link but google the following

enraged-hooligan-hurls-chairs-onto-upper-changi-road-one-even-hits-a-stationary-bus

The comments on s t o m p and Straits Times are standard

They really aren't making it easy for us right now!

I'm guessing the xenophobic, passive-aggressive locals are starting to get on every expats nerves. I mean the animosity is almost palpable and is starting to weigh on everybody like 99% humidity.

I couldn't give a tinkers cuss about a few snidey hacked private comments from Facebook... and am still somewhat riled and unsettled by how that story panned out.

But this guy :roll: really, WTH is he thinking!!! He's got it coming, and ***so far, and on the face of it*** it looks like he invited it upon himself.


- I'm not saying my view of this situation will not change; it might as the story develops. Right now, there is a lot that remains completely unanswered.

But yeah, as SMS suggests, if you're a p'd off expat and want to give the locals something to really get their teeth into, well this would be it...


Conspiracy theory: Of course just because he's caucasian, doesn't mean he's not local. Or being paid to have a public hissy-fit.

It's just a really drunk guy. Most Asians can't hold enough liquor to get drunk enough to start hurling shit around violently, that's all. :cool:

You forgot the Little India riots? :lol: Or do you mean the oriental part of Asia :) I learned that Filipinos can get very drunk too. Malays dont drink. So that leaves us with just one race :)

Malays don't drink? I learnt something today then.

PS: a local friend quipped sarcastically, that in the future, when ang moh come to Singapore, they may have to sign a disclaimer that they will not have a melt down ..

I know local malays from the Singapore bikers group. Not very close with them but I know them and have been to a few meetups. They dont drink. They smoke though, even though its a non-halal activity. But I am yet to see anyone mention about drinking, even casually.

Dunno what Malays r u talking about. I know plenty, dated at least 3 of Malay women by now.
Most of them drink, smoke, f#ck, and then go pray asking for forgiveness.

As one philosopher said: Praise the God - and do what you want! ;)

Same as other religions, you have a whole range of the worshippers; from the fanatical ones to the debauched ones, with the lot of moderate ones in the between.

mmm... smoking is not non-halal, per my Malay Friends and I am talking of Malays here in SG and not equating them to Muslims back home ..

And about drinking, well, no offense, but quite a few Malay guys I know are very careful and avoid chicken wings from non-halal outlets, while drinking ... and I don't mean to say "ALL MALAYS" .. I meant quite a few I know ..

Let's change the topic back to the Angmoh who had a melt down ..

Yeah I was very specifically implying one specific racial group in Singapore :) The ones who love to 'STOMP' the most.

I find myself over compensating already. Always holding the lift door for everyone else, last in and last out. Holding open shop doors for a stream of people passing through etc etc

I have even gained a new level of patience when using the MRT!
