You mean you can actually see people's faces? It seems most of them have their eyes buried in their cell phones. Just being sarcastic...but I do know what you mean.Mexikaner wrote:I don't want do generalize, but why does it seem to me that almost all the people I see on the street seem to be angry/unhappy?
By angry I mean with a huge frown on their faces.
Regardless if it is after work hours, morning time or WE. They just seem to me, to be unhappy...
I know you may say that it could be the pressure of living in Singapore, car/house debt, not ideal job, etc.,
Does it mean I will have the same frown every day on my face in a few years to come??
I don't know, I was recently in my home country, and I kind of did a 'social comparison', looking at people's faces, and quite honestly, most of them seemed to be having a nice day, relatively happy...
The moment I was back in Singapore, I went to my nearby hawker wishing to have a nice kopi, and was received by the aunty with the usual: "what you want?!?"
welcome back I guess...
There's this girl working in a tiny-cramped claypot stall in the hawker near my office. I'd say she's in her late 20's.BedokAmerican wrote: You mean you can actually see people's faces?

If they're at a hawker center, they may just be overheated. I try and avoid hawker centers because it seems they're too hot, too crowded and it's too hard to find a seat. Eating hot food while sweating doesn't put me in a good mood. But on the plus side, at least the food is cheap.
Ahhh, but there's the rub. They aren't Singaporeans....... I think the Singapore Scowl is a genetic defect.bgd wrote:The Beer Girls in Hawker centres always look happy in their work.
And Pinays, never seen a happier group of people anywhere.
