umm.. did i miss something? since when did the discussion of dutch manners change into talking about singaporeans?

besides, no one ever said that -only- dutchies are stingy. dunno where you got that impression from..

sommige mensen zijn echt snel op hun pik getrapt zeg..

maybe singaporeans are just as stingy and greedy as the dutch but at least they have the concept of 'face' ..

Sheesh....

Stop talking generalizing nonsense, can? :?

The topic was more about meeting up with Dutch, schizoide, not about Dutch manners as you say...

As the Dutch say: De pot verwijt de ketel dat íe zwart ziet.... :-|

well sorry for 'hijacking' the thread but i'm not the one who changed the subject, neither did i started making generalisations. i merely responded to comments by dyslexic_alien and k1w1 in a manner i saw fit.

you can better tell k1w1: 'de pot verwijt de ketel dat ie zwart ziet' btw

so as a reply i will say: bezint eer ge begint (te bekritiseren)

Dutch conversation

Postby jewelair » Thu, 17 Dec 2009 3:07 pm

Hi there,

I was wondering if there is a dutch community here in singapore. My boyfriend is Dutch and I am going to do the civic integration exam so I would like to practise speaking and listening to dutch. If anyone is interested or knows a good private dutch tutor, let me know!

Doei!
