Similar lines exist here now. It's slowly gaining traction but as usual, people are having the hardest times discerning what they're for, if they notice them at all.guyg wrote:re MRT waiting for people to disembark: I actually wish they had those yellow marks in London for two reasons: i) tourists ii) the queuing... at stations like canary wharf people queue directly in front of doors which is also quite annoying if your getting off
However I am dreading trying to get a buggy on/off MRTwhen I'm back in Singapore
How is it arrogant? Arrogant because im complaining about the subtitles being in a language that has a majority population *rolls eyes*nakatago wrote: That's pretty arrogant of you.
1. I'd understand it if this were China, Hong Kong or Taiwan. But this is Singapore where English is an official language and is claimed everyone speaks it. And why not Malay or Tamil, if we're gonna go with official language?
2. Visibly pregnant woman on the ground. Obviously some sort of assistance is needed. If the person refuses it, it's her problem not yours.
Oh yeah....it's Friday.

It looks like it maybe also the case here but I have never witnessed it. There are some situations where they do behave and hard to believe it is because of some deeper thoughts. Within this subject: hardly anybody dares to over take a flashing ambulance even in relatively neutral situations. Example, rush hours, highway, all lanes packed, the traffic moves with moderate speed, in the 1st lane is an ambulance moving with the trafic, flashing only (no signal). Hardly any motorcycle will pass it between lane 1 and 2.sundaymorningstaple wrote:Yeah, well, not much works as it's supposed to in Italy does it? In the US, don't get caught not giving way or you will get hung out to dry. Guaranteed.
Yeah thats the one. I didnt know someone in the expat forum would understand the hokkien equivalent.the lynx wrote: "khiang, mai kay khiang"?
Moral obligations are not something that can be categorised to be smart-ass about. The Golden Rule still applies that you should "do unto others what you would them do unto you". If the receiving party abuse you or tell you off, it is just them being ungrateful and you are not the loser, the other one is.
Dude, you gotta re-check your priorities.

On the contrary, I like the weather in Singapore. It can't make you "sick" in an "evil" way. Reminds me about the weather when I go back to Jakarta. Pollution!quidsin wrote:8. The Weather
I know there is nothing they can do about this but I'll cover it anyway. Hot, hotter and even hotter - Wet, wetter, and even wetter. It's unbearable so get used to sweating and getting wet and consciously losing what time of year it is as it never changes, groundhog day!!
singaporeans are a lost cause. i swear the next order for buses should just have a single row of seats since no one seems to want to sit by the window.Brah wrote:sitting in outside seat does the Singapore Twist, turning to force the incoming lady who wants to sit down, to have to squeeze by her, awkwardly, uncomfortably, and uncouthfully.
Thing is, this lack of class, basic humanity, common sense, decency don't even register with these people
