aiyoh, i thot this topic has been discussed to death everywhere b4?
My own personal conclusion is tt spore is not a sporting nation and there is nothing wrong with tt. Eg, people here talk soccer like big time experts more than they can even kick a ball! In short quite hopeless by world class standards.
But we hv good things in other areas. Appreciate them lor.

Must agree to dis-agree
Everyone will have own opinion.
I think it is good for 'new' Singaporean to know their 'new' country. But what bugs me is they have to take a 'test' after that to show that they have learn about Singapore, then that is too much.
(Sarcasm intended) Maybe this is part of the getting to know Singapore part where most things are judge by test and exam. Failure will have to go for remedial trip until you get 100% right.
Home is where your heart belongs.

We have actually, early malay villages here. For USA, there's Red Indian. For Australia, the Aboriginal. Sometime we forget the orginal people living around here.

with digital, do u do the same?
maybe u do, but most around me don't(i m guilty of that too).
its like ours star hunting officials,
dangle cash and citzenship or whatever it takes
to lure the mecenaries.
n yes i think they r mecenaries.

btw, the 100% was refering to the runner,
sorri if its not clear.
n unlike ours,
he is not there on OTHER PEOPLE'S MONEY
to gain EXPOSURE???
if our sportsmen r digital sensor,
they will all be overblown by now,
unless they r the Fuji SuperCCD SR-II.

Disagree with u on the part of 'criticising the government'.

Compare an armchair government (or might I say PAP) critic vs one who talks little, but performs a lot for the country, for the citizens, contributes to the society at large and volunteers for suicide squad mission during wartime, who is more patriotic?
Talk is cheap, and I see more and more disgrunted ppl who seem to be venting their personal misfortunes on the govt rather then themselves. And when fortunes come, they are the ones keeping quiet. What kinda world is this?
