While I don't claim to be one of the following as I am here due to family concerns, I think you will find that the local Government WANTS them to be here because as you so aptly put it..........

They are brought here to impart knowledge to the locals........

I say this a bit tongue-in-cheek but I'm sure you understand the egg on your face now.

Yes the Singapore Gvt is attracting and aiming for talent and know-how. But what a joke: you come over to Singapore coz the Singapore Government wants it that way. Are you so submissive to follow the Spore Government. Nonsense. You move across the world coz whats on offer in Singapore is a much better deal of what you get at home. thats it.
Dont give us that nonsense in order to make us grateful.
Why dont you move to Africa or Iraq there are lots of countries/governments who want you to come and share knowledge and talent? how about that.



Looks like you failed reading comprehension didn't you? Sure we move because of what's on offer. You're a bit blur like sotong aren't you. If asians are stupid (not my words!) why shouldn't we come for the money and impart knowledge (again, tongue-in-cheek).


Nonsense! You didnt get the point. Smart guys know how to read between the lines. Too bad for you. Wonder what sort of knowledge you transfer here in Spore, if you lack basic common sense. Your level of thinking isnt that indepth apparently like suggested from Sgal - Lets laugh....yo were back on the topic hehe...

In a nutshell, defensive Singaporeans feeling easily offended by tongue in cheek caucasians.... :D

Sgal, I somehow sensed you'd be a Chinese Singaporean woman and not a Malay Singaporean.

It's the bluntness and defensiveness versus the selfconfidence and relaxed attitude... :-|

2.What are some factors that your current domestic maids are not providing that you wished they could? (EgManicure or Massage?)

3 .Do you need household care taking when you are overseas?

4. How much are you paying your maid currently?

5. What is the preferred nationality of the maid?

6. Will you prefer a full time or part time maid?

7. Do you want a maid who can take care of your pets?

8. Will you prefer a male maid?

9. Would you like your maid to be uniformed?


I think you gonna be blocked by the mods for this irritating spamming of your nonsense....

I do hope so actually.

lots of friends reinforced my impression that an increasing number of Singaporean

Is that a false perception or did you make similar experiences?






Hello.Im from Marseille and just get an job offer with a local company in Singapore.Never came to Singapore before and did some research and hit this forum.
I am aware of the lack of representative opinions of chat forums.I went through most of the listings.Looking at the huge number of negative responses at this topic I just feel there must be some truth to it, it cant just be all nonsense.
I am cracking my brain now whether I should go relocate to Singapore.The job seems ok, but Im not keen to be laughed and giggled at for the next two years.
Maybe some of you could advice me sincerely. Thank you.

Bastille, rest easy. Singapore is a lovely little country, give it a try. Negative responses are usually from a few, who I daresay are negative people.
It's not getting any smarter out there. You have to come to terms with stupidity, and make it work for you.

Bastille? That's way back in 1769 or so, isn't it?

Marseille is a much nicer city then Singapore: STAY there Bastillon, things will not get any better for you when getting to this overly crowded racist ang moh hating place.

Eric I really don't understand your posts these days... I thought you liked that place so much?

The bastille was of course famously 'strormed' on 14 Julliet 1789. Which is not exactly true, this was just the date assigned to the event. The bastille was a prison, known for holding political prisoners and was around for a lot longer than just 1789. Bastille Day is also the name of a song by Rush released on their 1975 album Caress of Steel. Here's a great trivia question: the key to the bastille was framed by the original owner and hangs to this day in what famous house?

OK, Bastille -- come to Singapore. If Singaporeans have been laughing at me all these years, then it has been behind my back as I have never noticed. Honestly, not one instance of this kind of behavior. This is a very multi-cultural, multi-lingual place -- like a mini UN.

Sapphire is right on this, (as in many things). Singpaore is a lovely place to live and it would probably be a smart move from a career standpoint, no? So, come to Singapore -- you can ignore Vaucluse, Eric and CD like we all do.
:wink:

If people get concerned over silly stereotyped nonsense about singaporeans versus caucasians when coming to Singapore, I do advise them better to stay home indeed.

And I did mean it, Marseille is a much nicer city than Singapore. It's my favorite big city in France, for sure. Beautiful place.
