    The original people of Singapore were the orang laut. Are you not an FT yourself by mere extension of a generation or two?

    Just because you were here first does not mean you own the place. The earth is not yours. It never has been, it never will be.

    Be grateful for what you have.

    Seeing how we are having declining birth rate for decades, it will be extremely interesting to see the actual figures for natural born citizens who obtained birthrights against naturalized citizens after spending a minimum of just two years here as a PR and without serving NS released by the Department of Statistics (DOS), wouldn't be surprise if the former is a minority.

    Is it wrong for a community of people to develop a sense of nationalistic self-identity after generations have sacrificed so much in their lives bringing us to where we are now, suddenly feeling disgruntled and threatened by a mass influx of immigrants with no attachment whatsoever to this place?

    It's not wrong. But using that as an excuse to be an ass towards foreigners is not nice. And it reflects badly on our upbringing.

    By your logic, & going by the bible, all land belong to no one or to everyone. The original people is adam & eve? Fact is, there were and are still many immigrants but once Singapore became an independent nation & the people, regardless or race or color, are sworn in as its citizens, Singapore belongs to Singaporeans, & Singaporeans to Singapore. Are you saying that Singapore or Philippines belongs to no one or to everyone? All non-citizens ie. visitors, workers etc are only guests in our country. If any one of them dont like it here for whatever reasons, he can ship his a**e back home to where he came from. So I can go to Philippines & insult the country & its people & use this as an excuse?

    actually some of the occupation is really short-handed, we should welcome those in these profession such as Nursing, Nurse

    actually if give Singaporean those jobs, then overhead too high, and cost translate to consumer. it is also not healthy. actually this is a balancing job between MOM, ministry of development, ministry of trade and industry and immigration. here i don't think they sit down and talk. you do yours and i do mine ...

    Agreed, it all boils down to knowing one's place and mutual respect.

    While many would classify true blue Singaporean natives as mostly xenophobic, something which I beg to differ. Short of stereotyping, there are necessary foreign / migrant workers that we welcome with open arms and then there are those expatriates or foreign talents who walk over our heads with the mentality that we own them a living.

    Just yesterday morning, someone asked if I'm filipina...lol prior to that, perhaps like 5 years ago, pple will ask me if I'm Malay...how come no one asked me if I'm PRC?!?!

    I have worked with various nationalities before...I hate to say this, but many Singaporeans are no difference from the FT. The psychological of human mind is profoundly deep...when you have a FT as neighbor, and they always have their doors closed, tendency is that the neighbors will say the FT are rude and arrogant. But when the FTs are nice and friendly, the neighbors tend to say that the FTs are up to no good....

    As the saying always goes for the men on women: "women's heart is like looking for the needle in ocean deep" ditto for some Singaporeans as well...
