Suck it up

Postby AngMohKao » Wed, 09 Oct 2013 8:40 am

LOL. You're no longer the majority in an underdeveloped nation. This means that you'll no longer enjoy first class citizen rights. Maybe not overtly but definitely subtly. Get used to it. Suck it up like a man.

It's funny how you Aussies racially abuse the minority in you underdeveloped shithole and expect to be treated as first class citizens everywhere you go. Sorry, it cuts both ways man. You should be even glad we allowed people of your inferior eugenics into our fine country. Be grateful.

BLOODY HECK!

Great read - totally nuts. Were you all drunk?

So.....when did being asian = being rude or with no manners?

I think many asian people are some of the politest people in the world - look to the Thais, the Balinese, Filipinos ........

It was worth it, I may never have found the thread otherwise and it was a hilarious read :-)

Good point, but our new local 'Brain of Singapore' who joined in order to post that drivel still made him/herself look ridiculous.

Oh I agree and I think Katbh is asking for trouble by contributing to opening this up again :lol:

Oh, I will have a go then! Makes me laugh that 3.5 years later nothing much has changed. Despite past (eluded to in this thread) and present attempts to educate and change cultural habits, people still stand right in front of the train doors in the MRT then fight to get into the train without waiting for others to get out.

Who in my opinion and 18 months of experience does this? Older generation Chinese and Indian people in 99% of the instances I have seen. Can't teach an old dog new tricks?

But you can not say that Singapore = Asia. It is just a small small dot. And yes, this happens in many countries. But you can not equate this with being 'Asian'. There is more than one country of origin for 'Asians'. And it is quite funny, because in the West there is still the attitude of the polite and discreet asian v the buffoon of a bumbling westerner ..... ah grasshopper....

Two racist-like behaviours I hate the most in this country:


1. Taxi drivers: You look Chinese, where are you from?
me: from ABC
driver: woah so many ABC here, crowding the streets (I can feel contempt from his voice)


2. My fellow countrymen who happen to live in US, UK, AU and trying to force their accent to sound like a native English speaker. They even try to force as much English into my conversations with them as possible although there aren't any foreigners (to us) around.

Notice I used the word "force". They are not true native English speakers in any sense.

il share what i learned on tv :)

The ethical man knows it is wrong to cheat on his wife whereas the moral man wouldn't-ncis

i remember it while reading this post again. I think that because the environment tells them that its okay to behave this way, they no longer think it is wrong. Since ethics is dictated by society, there few will realize that their actions are offensive.

on another note, here's another example of this topic enjoy

I have never met any kind of racism against myself here but I did have an experience with my wife who is Thai recently that left me fuming.

We went to a restaurant in Vivo on a Saturday afternoon. Wife was carrying our baby and when we entered the restaurant and was greeted, I was asked whether I wanted a table for myself or if my maid was eating with me... I was furious and left swearing. Later wrote a complaint to the owner but never heard anything back :???:
