    Whatever the case, I think this conversation is not worth pursuing. I dont even feel like I am talking to an adult, to be honest, so my apologies if you happen to be one. I would rather prepare to scoot off downtown and celebrate the nation's anniversary in a short while from now!
    MO is Mass Order at Consumer Section. What? Can't take your own suggestion by going there yourself? I am not the one who say that

Why does it seem like I am the minority here? Not that I am trying to assert any superiority here, but I have to point out that the lack of accountability and responsiblity is destroying the call for transparency more than it is helping it. And THERE lies the irony.

    Now that what I call a good example of civil! Calling others "I dont even feel like I am talking to an adult" is a mightly good example we can learn!

    Just to give you an idea your OT. Yeah, this changed the people in the region persceptions of Singapore indeed, when I was in KL happen to talk about Tsunami and the ongoing efforts helping those greatly affected by all this.

    You know, what comment I got?

    Yeah, Singapore like that one... helped a little advertise big big with Singapore flag in background. Malaysia was the first to send aid and bigger than Singapore never act like that, typical Singapore garmen, capitalise as much as possible.

    I was stunned for a moment, it showed me that others are observing what we do or don't do... I wonder if the people thinks like that, what would their leaders think of our leaders.

    i remembered vividly that there were no news report about KL responding with aids, perhaps until much later. if they had responded swiftly but without media fanfare, i salute them.

    Actually, there are many who thinks like this, I think this is flawed thinking. Serve your country but don't follow blindly.

    Guess the Nazi's or the youth of Germany were not stupid but they followed their leaders thinking it was the patriotic way to serve their country fighting for unjust policies and unjust war, when they should be opposing it instead.

    What I am saying is our youth should developed critical thinking and decide what is right and what is wrong, that is how your serve your country.

    Well, you got the point there. As most young man in this country need to serve NS for 2 years or so, it also tell us that they are cheap too.
    Think hiring a professional to maintain the equipments & comparing too a young NS man paid? Sucks right?
