Please do not see all opposite sentiments and views as complaint or malicious lies, because every one of us has difference experiences and needs.
Let go of me and those people who form the opposite views from you. I suggest you put me in your ignore list.
By the way, who are we to judge others, there’s a teaching “Do not judge and you will not be judge”.
It is also important for you not to prognosticate too much into other people thinking, because it really makes you look like a bananaman. I feel that smiling is a very important part of social etiquette, and I will not think that when people smile at me, they are trying to seduce me or something like that.
Look at your previous statement and you can judge your own personality:
This one of your response to Waileong thread, neither Par Chiao nor I is interested in your engagement with others. But I can tell that you have me in your heart. You really have to let me go.
“And then after a while, a Silent Sky would descend, along with a few Par Chiao people; and all will run amok before a big bad Gang of Wolves comes in to carry out crowd control.”
This one belong to the PM’s Son thread, seriously I see no one complaining in the whole thread except for yours. Get some good friends to help you read and then form a better opinion.
“Ha, well it takes one to know another; it started off as complaining, now it's just bored mudslinging.”
This one belongs to shs thread which says something was stolen. This is how you branded Singaporean compared to me saying we lack of smiles.
“That's sad, shoplifted it off? Sick Singaporeans”
“Well, it is more likely to be Singaporean than anyone else! You don't see people going on trips to STEAL LENSES, do you?”
This one belongs to Ah Kiat thread. This is how you feel about fellow CSers.
“For example, imagine Clubsnap in a non-digital age, if it even existed, you'd have to go to a billboard somewhere to read threads.. And people not happy with what you say they just tear your reply out and 'delete' it. Or just vandalise it with pictures of Porky Pig, etc.
In fact, I don't think the billboard will exist after a while, since there are so many emo people in CS..”
You do not have to teach the Admin what to do, they will close this thread if they find it malicious. I have confidence in the Admin.

I will try not smile when I enter that country.
I can't remember did I smile first but I asked the question jokingly.
I think it is very important for forntline service staffs to wear a smile at all time.
It is where tourists and visitors form the first impression about our country.
I really do not know about the immigration code of conduct, are the officer told not to smile or what?
Talking abt smiling at the immigration counter, there was once i really tried very hard not to smile when i was in Hanoi airport. The officer at the counter has got one of the most retro hairstyle i've seen. And basket, my friend kept turning back to me and breaking out in laughters. I must tell you it's one of the most "tortured" clearance i've done, for i had to act really stern when it's my turn....in case i offended him and spend my trip in the airport...
aiyah. been in and out of airport so often. sometimes they smile, sometimes they just nod, sometimes they just take your passport, glance and you, then stamp and wave you on...
depends on the person, the day, the mood.
anyway i've never found the counter staff anything less than polite. often friendly, esp if you smile too.
the 4 million smile thing was silly, that's not really new.
why you wanna flog this horse?
the funny thing is that i never really get any smiles from immigration officers regardless of the country i'm landing in...but i always get smiles from and even chat up customs...
Too free? Too bored? Or do some of you feel the need to come online to pick a fight with cynical or sarcastic comments?
Honestly, grow up. Take this some where else or in PM. This forum wasn't set up for you to come here and bicker over issues such as these.
Any else starts anything along this line again will have have their account revoked.
I am sick and tired of reminding the usual suspects time and time again over what CS is for and what we do not allow. Take this as your final warning.
I always try to go to a woman immigration officer here in Singapore, and I always say 'hello!' when I approached her......
