    This has been digged out from the archive.

    I have a colleague that is coming from China and he claims that he feels the big brother effect here more than there.

    I was suprised to hear that.

    Since I have never been to China can anyone confirm what he says?
    Even if I do not agree with you, I will always fight for you to have your say.

    It is because you grew up in the Sg laboratory. You dun notice.

    But when you have experienced a wider piece of land with very different lifestyles possible, you notice easily the controlled environment you are entering.

    Enough CCTV camera reminds you that everything is under control here.

    That is probably a good thing.

    We all feel really safe ! Don't we?

    the biggest big brother ever to exist is probably one's own conscience

    Also true !

    But you may not be guilty of anything and still may not like imagining someone breathing down your neck.

    It is a bit like the ones who prefers the cash to plastic money.

    Or countries where private life is protected and others not. Small things like that.

    No need to feel guilty of anything to have such preference.

    well, your colleague only had a feel, which may very well be a personal reaction to stresses due to cultural differences. i've encounter people who demonstrated real fear of surveillance in several other countries before while doing site studies.

    Of course we are being watched.

    Walk around with a big white lens or big black lens, the stares are very obvious

    Eye of sauron is on every tall buildings, many in CBD but easiest to spot in heartland, there is one in toa payoh, on top a building 3 "letter abbreviation"-hub.
    You need to be very observant because it is cloaked to the general population.

    well, KJE as an 'expressway' itself is a joke... how to call it an 'EXPRESS' when the speed is only 70km/hr?

    i literally dunno how to drive in that speed, its so hard, press abit of fuel, 75-80, then must relax, then wait for it to go down to 65... wat a hassle...
