in comment : What 'Singaporeans' are you talking about TR?

Temasek Review: Indian new citizen/PR told Singapore NSman complaining about foreigners to make himself more “marketable”

"How can Sinha expect Singaporeans to make themselves more “marketable” when they have to compete directly with foreign workers who cost a fraction of them?"

a2ed:

What 'singaporeans' are you people talking about? The 'mandarin-speakers preferred' singaporeans? The 'must maintain a racial balance in favour of the chinese' singaporeans? The 'speak mandarin and appreciate chinese culture as opposed to others' singaporeans? The 'mother tongue policy that makes one sector more marketable locally and regionally than others' singaporeans?

It's not very pleasant when the selfsame plight is visited upon you in the face of the new foreigners, but perhaps that could lead to the growth of an empathetic propensity on your part. Or has preceding conditions led to your being too well-trained in the art of self-absorption to care?

To the opposition, anything to say about this? I think not.

Is singapore a tyranny, or are people to dumbed down to feel it?

The following is a consideration of the perspective posted at the site, 'article14'. The site, in discussing the so-called 'Black Sunday movement' whose members wear black and congregate at Starbucks - perhaps they have an unstated desire to boost Starbucks sales of overpriced beverages, or perhaps Starbucks is paying for their black garments...silly people - to express their support for the freedom of expression - brought up certain points that seem to be commonly held by the 'singaporeans' of today.

Well, V (singaporean chinese girl working in the UK....and now back for the holidays) kept bugging the crap out of me to write about this experience....so here goes.

I arrived in singapore on the 15th of Jan in the evening via SQ with V.  I got to the baggage retrieval belt first and quite immediately got the attention of the customs police standing at the checkpoint near the entrance to the arrival hall.  Well, never mind.
