thanks for all the responses. really appreciate that.
i've tried almost everything that was recommended.
i've tried talking to them as well. they've promised NEVER to do it again. guess what?
actually, i tried calling the police as well, but those sorry asses said that if i stay in a private property
, then they won't interfere unless blood is shed. i wonder if there's anyone from the police force who can confirm this stupid rule.
the air horn advice? thanks, i love you for your moxy! alas, i have to think of my neighbours. my immediate neighbour has a one year old, and i cannot bear to wake them up. in fact, i get along great with all my neighbours except the bunch of barbarians upstairs.
i would love to try intimidation, ubfortunately, i don't know anyone i can borrow to make this happen. anyway, those students are thugs themselves. they're punjabi farmers, so they have no idea what's proper behaviour when staying in an apartment. i suppose those fellas do live in the country, where they can stomp and shout all they want and nodoby will hear.
i do have football crazy fans that will raise a ruckus whenever there is a match, but that does not occur every night, so i doesn't really affact me. though... i drea 2006 - world cup. >_>
as for shooting them, saif, why don't you do me a favour? i'll give you their address. ^_^ jokes aside, i have had murderous thougts since they moved in. i don't think violence solves anything, so don't worry people, i'm not gonna kill anyone.
the sad thing is, singapore, being multicultural, is supposed to be tolerant. that means we have to live with other races' idiosyncrasies, and i believe we've been doing that since forever. BUT some people seem to take advantage of this, and think that racial tolerance means accepting bad behaviour.
i would love to, but it's not so easy to move out. the property market is not exactly great and the value of my apartment has dropped, most likely due to the influx of foreigners students. the security seems to have problems especially with students. the unit above mine is basically a coolie house. it cheapens the value of the condominium
as well so it's a vicious circle.
the management, out of frustration from my complaints, have adviced me to write directly to the strata act. i'm not very hopeful though. they generally will give me a set of guidelines in black and white saying they really can't do anything, blah blah, i have their sympathies, but i'd better piss off. that kind of thing. this is singapore after all and i know the system long enough to know the authorities just want to sit on their fat asses and get their fat pay. maybe i should emigrate. sigh...
