That's an entirely different topic altogether :) but yeah I agree with what's happening on the ground. Having Singapore'orean friends telling me how they feel makes me feel that way for them too

It think your guys are too sensitive and are confusing bigotry with 'Racism'.

You want racism see:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Violence_against_Indians_in_Australia_controversy

Singaporeans went to Batam and were unceremoniously sent back for talking Singlish too loud and not making eye contact with Generalissimo imm officer.

Did we scream "racism!.Xenophobia! report to Gov,Humanwatch,how can you hate us.. ,we pay taxes..help!??

No, we take it on the chin and as pragmatic Singaporeans we go Bintan.

I don't get this 'we are number 1 argument'..... in what?


Yes, number 1 when it comes to:
- Importing FT to win you medals in table tennis?
- Being the most expensive city for expats on the globe.

Besides that everything is pretty average:
- Best university here is NUS, ranked 26 in the world.
- Best park here is Botanical Gardens, which is number 11 among the great parks
- Best beach..... ah wait, no....
- Best nightlife.... ah wait, no....
- Best childcare, pre-school and secondary.... nope... International Schools here are far superior.
- Best infrastructure..... nope...
- Lowest tax pressure.... nope...
- Best climate.... nope....
- Best food.... not in a million years....
- Best shopping.... not even close to top 50
- Best newspapers..... :shock:
- Best TV channel coverage, cinemas and entertainment parks.... nah....
- Best elderly care? Don't get my started on the poor aunties and uncles who build Singapore and how many of them still have to work into their 70's and 80's.

..... I could continue this list....

It's OKAY here.... but number 1... You're having a laugh!

Mr Blade did not do anything so far to nuke him. I am more concerned about Mr yogaloungeforever.

And the Aussie government closed 1 eye despite threats from the Indian government and guess what happened ... it eventually went quiet over in Oz after a while. But the Indian government ... is still fuming :D

Wow .. so many Blade's quotes from X9200. What irony!

Blade wrote:A Singaporean "Jealous" of a Pinoy? Ha ha ha!

You should travel around the world then you will get a dose of reality.

Try Saudi or HK first.

Blade wrote:Earlier post stated we are jelly of them pinoys! ha ha.

Don't have to 'show' or prove anything lah..We are No.1 in the whole world [surpassed Swiss also],richest and smartest too, when we see our beautiful 'Island nation' become a dumping ground for parasite dwellers from 3rd world slums how do you think we feel?

Were you here during Singaporeans's Golden era?

Blade wrote:Singapore version 1, was built by guess who: Singaporeans.

Version 2 is the dumping down of Singapore by the "Quitters".

Q:"If you're all so rich and smart then why did your island nation "become a dumping ground for parasite dwellers from 3rd world slums" ?

Ans: bcos we don't do menial work [see other 1st world nations], thats done by 3rd world, no pride quitters.

And the those who rushed here to live in Utopia, it's not the Singapore you read about anymore [see 2nd paragraph above]ha ha...

And dont worry I am born and bred here i reserve the right to criticize my fellow Sinkies.Others have not earned that and will never.

Blade wrote:And BTW go find out what the word Xenophobic means.

We are certainly not, infact We have been welcoming outsiders for 300 years.

Blade wrote:"SINGAPORE IS 49 YEARS OLD????"

This is the stuff you guys are fed?

What was it before then ? a Banana plantation?

:shock:

Oh, don't get your knickers all knotted up we love the Ukraine and Pinoy [Spanish half ancestry type] girls at Girly bars.More should come! ha ha..

"However, I wonder what it is that Blade thinks the original Singaporeans, a combination of Malay and Chinese, actually built. Not Marina Bay, methinks, nor the houses of parliament"

We built the SINGAPORE BRAND.It's not something physical like the grotesque MBS or Gardens by the Bay..GET IT?

Blade wrote:I hope ignorance is not contagious..

Singapore is 49 years old! Wow!.

For you information Singapore was doing very well even before the economic genocide by Raffles and his EIC.

Oh, and if your MNC COO is busy reading racists blogs and getting up-set by them,then he shouldn't run a business in Asia.You think Singapore holds the monopoly on bigotry? [Google that word]

Definitely Singapore is too high level for his business.

The MNC COOs I know are too busy making money and are too thick skinned to worry about this drivel.

Blade wrote:"Before Raffles arrived, there were around 1,000 people living in Singapore, mostly Malays and a few dozen Chinese"

Oh yah? how do hey know that? You shouldn't believe everything you read on the WWW, certainly not Wikipedia.

Blade wrote:Like i said you shouldn't believe everything you read on the internet..

Singaporeans [born and bred and gone thur the 'system'] have very high IQ but low EQ so what?.We are what we are, if not happy then the door is on your left..try this:http://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2014/jun/17/immigration-british-attitudes-harden-benefits

Cannot just come of a boat and become a Sinkie just like that.You have to also know where the best Hokkien Popiah can be had etc.

Rest of the world is copying us -it's tough looking up at No.1 right?

Blade wrote:People who eat Vadai and other Indian dosh don't count -as a taxi driver once commented to me "they are invisible" people. Any knows what is implied by that?

"So Singaporean" EXACTLY.

But so many want to become Singaporeans, so perplexing isn't it??

For me, I m proudly Singaporean and won't forsake or give up on my motherland for the sake of PINK IC.

You should be proud of where you are from don't be a 'Quitter' people will respect you more.

Blade wrote:Yup, good remember that..

Derogatory,insulting? you should view some of the anti-Singaporeans sentiments of the web.But we don't go whinging and crying to their Gov.like babies.We too thick skinned lah.

i.e Singaporeans barred form entering Batam for "Talking Singlish too loud".

You want to live here GROW SOME BALLS.

Blade wrote:Yes, Singapore is a socially stratified nation.But to understand why you really have to know the history of the communal race riots of the 50 & 60s. If you have no reference point then you should just sit down and shut up.

DO you know why we don't allow RACIAL ENCLAVES in any housing estate?
No? go find out then I will explain more.

Quote:"Singapore is the most racist place" ? well that depends alot on what you yourself are? North Indian? you go in this box,AMDK? you go in this box..Pinoy? go in the box..etc.

But,but everyone is guilty of the same thing right?

Blade wrote:Ha,ha guess what: look who is posting derogatory,racist,Xenophobic comments?. See what I mean.

Difference is we don't go crying to mummy.We are like that bcos we are No. 1 get it?

BTW that description of uncouthness goes for alot of other cultures and nationalities.We don't own the monopoly on bad behavior.

The 'Singapore Brand' is the 'CAN DO,PRAGMATIC,HIGH IQ,HIGH INTEGRITY,PRACTICAL problem solving ethic.

It's what made Singapore No.1 in the whole Universe.

Now what we have is a dilution of this 'Brand'.Remember the Utopia is not the Singapore your read about in the promotional blurbs and made you abandon your mother-land and run here.We were so much better then.

Why? bcos real Singaporeans don't give a rat's ass anymore.

Blade wrote:where has my postings been racist?

Oh, do you know the diff between RACE and NATIONALITY?

RACE:
Negro
Indian
Chinese
Gwelio

Nationality:
Sinkie
Pinoy
Thai
Dutch
etc..

Blade wrote:For us its tough being No.1 and seeing the slum element dragging us done.

BTW we are labeling ourselves, the whole world is labeling us -tough eh? ha,ha..suck it up people! http://travel.cnn.com/singapore/none/wo ... o-1-399897

e.g Dead bodies in bags,Riots,cheating,ATM,Credit card skimming,Cyclist with middle finger obscene sign,Gweilo insulting train commuters,Snatch theft,crazy drivers,Cheating,embezzlement,CBT,New and obscure diseases.etc

Oh Singapore.

The irony is our 'esteemed' new immigrants are also wondering what's great about it...well why do you think?

Blade wrote:One thing i cannot fathom is: they actually like Singapore as it is now?

Wow, you should have seen us before it got crazy.You would get an instant Orgasm!

Mr Fortan, as I posted earlier, we are not presumptuous enough to label ourselves No.1.We are pragmatic Singaporeans too busy keeping up our world record GDP [higher than Swiss,Scandinavia]

Rather the honor was bestowed by the foreign media i.e CNN,TripAdvisor and all those interminable surveys,polls,rankings,reviews,league tables,etc,etc.

Why don't you ask me what is the really valuable No.1 ranking honor which we should aspire towards?

You have a full right not to be able to comprehend various things, but your unprovoked and racial rants without any solid context are already a nuisance. One more and you are gone.

Well as moderator it seems you have the upper hand with threats. But what I have stated are facts. And as far as my posts what racial rants are they? I may have highlighted Indian examples but it is the truth. Have I called an Indian a derogatory name because this should your valid reason for barring my account. And not on the grounds of silencing me because of the facts I state If you do this, you are obviously afraid of the truth. Very afraid!

Really happy for you.You 'made it' in the tiny,little Red Dot.

We actually aim higher than that when we attend Grifton College,Cambridge,Oxfam or any of the Ivy League colleges in the US.

Singaporeans due to high IQ excel, routinely upping the ratings, re-writing the standards there and will further our education and careers in the truly,amazing WORLD CLASS [all below No.1] major cities of NY,London,HK etc.We hold ourselves up against the whole world get it? Why do you think we are No.1 and you are not?

Off you go to work harder in the Little Red Dot to increase our GDP for us even more.Thank you for that.


Still haven't answered my question. Wuss.
