Recently I attended orientation learning journey for new citizens.
They have this orientation package with 3 components which must be completed b4 formal citizen approval is granted.

My observation shows more than 80% are chinese, of which mainly from China & Malaysia.

FYI...

Given their rhetoric about getting pr's to take up citizenship and your time here I suggest give it a try. Seriously - no one here knows what the answer is. But we'd be glad to hear the results of your endevours.

Frankly, I don't think you'll find such people on this board. On top of this, it will be somebody's individual experience at a specific point of time and ICA judges everybody on her/his own merits.

calvin: singapore's made up of immigrants. the natives are indigenous malay orangs (or something along that line).

if they aren't complaining, you shouldn't either.
