I must stressed this, this thread is at all times, not a tool to strike against the peoples of PRC. I for one have respectable friends from PRC, and wish to remain their friend.
However, I was appalled to have read the article in Sunday Times today, of which had gave the Chinese the title of "UGLY CHINA TOURISTS".
Of such, the article gave one an insight of what these tourists are quite capable of. Staging protests, have not 60 years of communism teach them there are no freedom in Earth?
Of course, I came to a conclusion of which gave me a hard laugh: They have staged a protest onboard a Cathay Pacific flight bounding for Hong Kong from Bangkok, and will stop in Singapore before continue its journey. The extract of the article is as the following:
First in the agenda, I supposed, the problem at stake here is their money. That is of course, it is expensive for foreigners to wander around Singapore as well.Because of the flight delay, the passengers could not go on the day tours that they had booked in Singapore. They staged a mass sit-in inside the plane. The row was resolved only after Cathay Pacific paid each of the passengers US$50 (S$83). By the time the passengers disembarked, it was midnight.
Well, after the money, we come to pride and their "dignity". Well, I am speechless here. We have, generally, 4 main groups of Chinese visitors here in Singapore I should categorises; the General Tourists, The Diplomats and the major Economy Contributor, those who digs our money away, and those who migrates here. You should know my point by now.
Third in agenda, they left the plane at midnight with S$83 more to spare, and knowing that they have triumph over one of the world's largest airliner in an airport which is for long considered one of the world's best, in a country where everything is expensive, partially due to her high GDP per capita and her reputation as the many of the world's best.
They will henceforth, return to their villages as heroes.
