don't you aussie lovers have some indian people to beat up and steal their lap top from? aren't there some islamic people on cronulla you have to beat up? are you too discouraged to watch england crush you in the ashes? are your rugby league mates too busy to go gang rape women? aren't there any aboriginal people you want to go threaten? are you upset that cadel evans choked YET AGAIN and lost to an american (a 38 y o american with one testicle destroyed cadel)?

every country has their problems.

There's a lot to love about us, thank you for pointing that out. Or are you calling us all lovers? Either way thank you for the kind words.

As for the rest of your post . . . looks like you need a Image

haha thanks....yea just woke up.

I also just don't understand why people get upset about being kiasu. why do you care so much?

most americans are type A machiavallian (sp??)

they are also very kiasu.
they want to be the first to:
land on the moon
have a nuclear bomb
use a nuclear bomb
have aircraft carrier
have nuclear submarine
be the first to board an airplane even though their row is not called (even singaporeans politely wait for their row to be called)
be the first person to put luggage in overhead bin
be the first person to have the newest fashion (handbag , car, clothes, computer, ipod, iphone etc)


saying you are the first to have the a380 is great marketing tool and should be used. Consider that the average american plane is about 25-30 years old while singapore air flies virtually new planes. Most people have a conception that asia is dirty, dated, and flies airplanes discarded by "modern" american airlines (i guess true if you look at JAL...).
