Thread: Do u wear MASK?

  1. #1

    Default Do u wear MASK?

    So many people buy...so expensive...but but but...do u wear?!

    Went to Singapore last week, see nobody wearing mask.

    Is this kiasi or kiasu? I think kiasu more than kiasi...

    kiasu (afraid of must ran out of stock...thus buy as many as one can get, regardless of actual usage or not)

    In times like these, sometimes its better to be Kiasu than not. Btw Kiasuism and kiasism is not restricted to Singapore only. I did not purchase any mask.

    Some pple buy to have peace of mind. They buy to prepare for the "just in case" scenarios.

    The BIG question is why so few Singaporeans are wearing masks as a precautions, when many in Hong Kong, China etc.. are already doing so. Is it because most Singaporeans are overly self/image conscious, overly ai-swee (mai mia)...

    I did buy some masks, and got my mum to wear one when she went to the clinic, which I consider as a higher risk location..

    if you don't know how to wear it properly (believe me it is not THAT simple), or if you're using the wrong type of masks, you'll probably be just as exposed as the next person............

    Exactly! And I read / heard from somewhere that people said they're buying the masks first & keep it just in case the government tells them to wear! Sheesh - no mind of their own.
