    Perhaps TS might want to considering converting into a vegetarian if he is not already one since if has a far greater impact on mother nature than any other green methods of environmental conservation.
    I just ate 4 veg n 1 meat. 80% vegetarian. What abt you? Ha ha!

    sorry to say. That generation had passed and true blue Singaporeans had already emerged for a few generation (at least your father/Mum is born in Singapore). If you want to talk about ancestors then you have to go back to Dinosaur/Caveman age. Cos who were the ancestors of our immigrants?

    So your statement doesn't really sounds right.

    What we are saying here is true blue Singaporeans is threaten by the increasing population of immigrants who WERE NOT BORN HERE AND GREW UP HERE taking over our jobs and life and others.

    Nothing against FT, if they are hardworking and really want to start a family here and contribute, kudos to them. But some are simply come to work then slap their butt then go back to their country after they earned enough.

    Maybe your working experience is not enough, you haven seen lazy FT as well.

    You're making a mountain out of a molehill and fighting all the wrong battles.

    Militant activism is rarely effective, especially at winning others over to your cause. Except perhaps if you want to join Greenpeace and chase Japanese whaling vessels.

    I'm not disagreeing with your cause, but do you really think it's effective to get pissed off when others disagree with you and call them names?

    seems more like a rant at Foreigners and unhappiness at management. this is more likely the real issue rather than "GOING GREEN"

    dear Sir, i've worked for over 10 years since secondary school in various industries. i've seen lazy, and i've seen hardworking.

    but this is no reason to lump them all together and insinuate that they're here for all the wrong reasons.

    and just to remind you, that there are Foreign workers here in this very forum. and i, too, am one such person.

    Abt to say something like that. Singapore really like a rojak country. Dont need to compare much, i am surprise taiwanese queue for their mrt but not local. Why? We fighting space to be in else we will be late n get scolded. While (possible), FT wouldnt cause if they got scolded, they just leave the job n look for another easily.

    Support green whenever you can. There isnt much we can do now. Maybe 2012 end of world as earth quakes too many recently?

    if u read my sentence earlier. I have nothing against FT.

    in fact I made a few FT friends here on clubsnap.

    what I am saying here is, when you are born in this land and grew up here, a sudden influx of FT, you will somehow feel threaten.

    Personally I already said, if this person really wants to settle his roots here and contribute, i respect him. But I know some came for the intention to earn and pack up to go back to his own country. This is something I despise. Although morally its not wrong but then again... I dun wish to say further.

    I also never sterotype all FT are lazy, didn't I?

    And oh, so you worked 10 over years here, good for you. But for the past 13 years in the workforce, I have seen my fair share of FT leaving Singapore once they earned enough. I didn't see much wanting to stay for good. So I hope you will eventually be one of those few here that will stay and contribute.

    i did not say you stereotyped. that sentence was directed at TS.

    and because of that "Pack up and Leave" reason, the government has made measures. i've seen many of my colleagues from other countries made to pack up and go by the ICA over the past few years. and even now, they're still focused on trimming the foreign workforce.

    if this is what the IT Manager as a professional recommends for the safety of the server room, then you have to ask what position are you in to question the knowledge of someone who is in that field?

    in my company now, there is great emphasis on going green. but we also cannot ensure that every little detail is green. you cannot be on an absolute scale. in real life, there are no absolutes. there is always a balance.

    in your enthusiasm, you might have overlooked the fact that this is the only thing that is not "green". not everything can be made to be green
