Where does the Foreign Talent come from..

Was reading this article and it mentioned of around 300k highly skilled Malaysians who left Malaysia last year almost half moved to Singapore.

Thats a lot of incoming migrants of PMET level, how come nobody ever mentions it when it comes to dishing out the anti-foreigner sentiment.

After isnt a foreigner a foreigner irrespective of the links you have to the country the folk are coming from?

Don't worry. The Malaysians get as much turd thrown at them as everyone gets on cyberspace. The only advantage we have is that we blend into the crowd well. That helps in evading a lot of the in-your-face slurs in real life.

LOL, I know what you mean ;)

There are a few Malaysians who, while the natives go anti-FT, keep quite, only me and a fewer no saying loudly that there are non-SCs in the party :D

I guess as long as you refuse to blend in, natives have less things to rant ..

though there is a new breed of Anti-foreigners who go against anything foreign..

Example: when the Govt said PRs can opt in for volunteer Defence .. vocal Anti-anything-foreign goes "SC do 2 year, a PR do Few months, not enough and unfair "

and the same bloke contradicted himself in another blog of his saying any foreigner opting to let their children do NS must be given equal privilege, and until then, they must be treated second class ..

and in another went on to say Foreigners must atleast volunteer here or there, to show commitment ..

Cannot satisfy that bunch anyway ....
