I am proud to be a Singaporean...
No offence, but are you aware you sound a bit like a propaganda tube? You are pretty severely indoctrinated I would say
I am trying right now to shake off from you some of your pre-conditioning as you seem friendly and probably this will not escalate to one of the Nakatago's nightmare scenarios.
More questions on what a local feels... please.
Is it really changing? Ok, why is it the way it is now?
Was it always based on memorizing rather then understanding? How was it before the independence?
I am as unorthodox a Singaporean as you can find or know,
i pride myself to be as unique as possible,
i don't follow fashion trends, i hate brands in clothing, but will buy really good equipment for my work,
will not follow the queue to buy "good" food, would rather buy from the closest stall / restaurant,
i embrace change, as it is the only constant,
I stopped school after my "O" Levels, cause i hate memorizing stuff, i am Chinese, but was brought up speaking English, (in fact my whole family spoke English) and always failed my Mandarin subject.
I had to stop school cause i couldn't pass my mandarin.
I am "not" Pro PAP, but i am pro "good government".
Before Independence, school was always about memorizing stuff, till not so long ago, it is more well rounded now.
People back then had honor (even the gangsters / Triad) Their word was their bond. These days there are few truly honorable people left
Well, I see a change, will take a generation or 2 more, and the change will start with me and you.
(I see the attitude of people, and i also cannot stand it, but instead of complaining, i will take the man in the mirror approach)
Cheers, i am a friendly and a nice guy.
