Whats the wildest thing a Singaporean can do?

Postby fly2sneha » Thu, 10 Mar 2011 6:02 pm

You might have trouble associating the term 'wild' with any singaporean, because they are anything but that. They seem to be too orderly and disciplined. That actually drives me crazy! how can you be sooo disciplined? I have wondered if they ever can let go and act relaxed.

So tell me, Whats the wildest thing you have seen a Singaporean do? If you have a funny incident involving locals, please key them in.

PS- this post is meant to be a light take on life here. No offensive statements/opinions pls.

Looks like she might have met Pono Lasse! :oops: OMG.

Didn't you read about the pretty Korean girl that topped herself.

A very sad state of affairs, and all Koreans should sit up and take notice, bloody disgrace, I hope the letters she left gets them all jailed for a very long time.
Though I suspect the industry is rotten in more places too.

outside singapore, yes, i have heard a lot.

I remember one of the old posts somebody posted. "Try going to a rock concert here, the audience just stand there motionless. It is pretty weird"

I take offence to that .. yes, a decade ago, the concerts were like that, as, when we start to get up, the cops step in and say "go to the back of the stadium and dance, and not on the seat - the seat is public property and damaging it will entail fine / punishment" - yeah, they were right, and while I like the style of setting fire to stadiums / damaging them, we forget it is our own tax payers money that paid for the seats - not our ticket cost ..

And I witnessed a cop lecturing a kid, for pouring candle wax on to a park bench .. and when somebody tried to tell the cop to cool it - the cop gave "THE LOOK" and said "well, if the kid damages the bench, who is going to clean it ?? and being Singaporean, we should know better than damaging our own infrastructure .. " small words, but that meant a lot, when you compare the millions of $ in damages in other countries when the common joe let's his hair down and decides to burn a couple of cars, loot a couple of shops .. (and if anybody remember the IMF meeting where they govt designated a protest area .. compared to the other IMF meetings where routine damages run into millions of $ .. Singapore suffered zero loss, though some western countries were quick to say that public protest - or damaging public property - is the norm .. )

Ever since Mr Goh Chok Tong started asserting his feelings, that uptight control disappeared ..

And things like 24 hours pubs and bar top dancing (a fad that appeared and vanished) are just proof .. that Singapore is not so stuck up .. compared to 10 years or so ago .. when 11 PM was the cutoff for pubs, and 1 AM was the cutoff for discos, on weekdays, extended by a couple of hours on weekends ..

And that St James was officially opened by the then Minister of Defence is proof of government making things fun ..

If somebody went to a rock concert recently and the crowd was like at a funeral, then he/she went to a rock concert that sucked .. I am trying to recall a concert that was less vocal - atleast within the last 5 years .. or so .. ;)

(I hope I didnt' sound like a PAP candidate .. ;) )

The original quote is from me, and i maintain that it is true.

In what other country could you go and see ZZ-Top, sit 5 yards in front of the stage and put down a picnic rug to sit on? Really!
