Too true.

I was talking in a local context. I was shocked because this was the first report I have heard of an angmoh being involved in a petty theft in Singapore. I know angmohs have been involved in other mischievous actions here.

1. Young angmoh boys vandalizing cars
2. An Angmoh Errant Trader
3. An Angmoh stuffing someone into a car in was it Orchard Towers

Have I got my facts right?

Are there anymore naughty angmohs?

I'm only going from 2005 when I first arrived.

you forgot one important category - the invasion of the super-annoying Kiosk Mall Rats

you know, who approach you with "Can I ask you a question?", then follow you, ignoring your first polite 'no thank you' and insist on following you despite the firmer and more direct 'what part of "no" didn't you understand'?

except I (well, my partner) just had yet another such encounter, and it was not a white foreigner but a local girl who proved equally annoying

apparently these people are making big bucks

Me, two good friends, and two acquaintances have all had purses and wallets stolen from these locations:

Harbourfront Centre (1)
IKEA Alexandra (2)
Isetan Scotts (1)
Takashimaya (1)

Purse and wallet theft in Singapore is rampant. Everyone has to very careful about where they put their valuables.

If the US army killing thousands in Iraq or Ausralia's treatment of the Aborigenes or any number of major issues isn't already doing that then I think one whitey nicking, supposedly, something is fairly low on the pecking order.


Whitey?? lol!

You call us ang moh, matsalleh, gweilo etc . . . nothing wroing with calling myself a whitey. Has a nicer ring to it, and doesn't sound derogatory.


Never could understand whiteys referring to themselves ang moh, falang etc . . .

and 200 $ phone ... and 100 $ hand bag .... very very expensive dinner





:mad: :shit: ](*,) [-X [-X


To begin with, try not using the term "ang mo" since it might be construed as racist here. Secondly, just lodge a police report. Thirdly, what are you trying to get here? Info and tips on who the culprit is since "ALL ang mos" must be reading this forum?? :roll:
