    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.

    let me quote 1 example, we all remember that singapore won the malaysian cup in 1994(right year?) but who was the reserve right back then? or the 1st team left midfielder? any1 can remember without checking back the record books?
    seriously, do u remember the names of the players in the 1st brazilian world cup winning team? i bet not even brazilians will remember that.
    so, as long as the word "singapore" is inscribed onto the cup, who cares who won it for us.
    like ur previous thread and agree wholeheartedly,
    but this, i beg to differ.

    honestly,
    i don't know who knows what 50 yrs down the road,
    and i don't care.
    i do know that i hv serve the nation to my best,
    pay my taxs on time,
    n what did the Gov do with the money?
    engage foreigners that may or may not bring
    'honours' to my country.

    remember the marathoner from one of
    the african country?
    sole representative,
    won a gold.
    100% hit rate, like shooting slide.
    urs, best barely qualify, like shooting digital,
    n the worst thing is we use past best by date digital camera.

    Default 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.

    Since most foreingers who come to Singapore to work and live are in it for the money, maybe it should be:

    "Home is where the wallet 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.

    guess i should be more clear.

    with slide, u don't shoot first see histogram later,
    careful planning for everything before button is pressed.
    there is no turning back and u know what u r getting even
    before its out.

    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'.

    Does 'criticising the government' make u anymore patriotic? A 'true blue Singaporean' who loves his country?

    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?
