ya I saw that too..I spitted out my chocolate bubble tea just now too when it flash at me on the first yahoo page and then I saw it here hehehe... it was interesting to say the least. Someone must have been smoking a huge bong! heheheh
guess the country is happy but not the countrymen......
they need to do a check on their brain.
why is there nothing to be happy about... we have not war, no famine, no drought, no racial riots, our children can go to school safely, our kids can be out until 4am but still come home in one piece... they are not abducted and rape somewhere in the jungle...
We want to know what's the secret of Singaporeans' happiness.
I am very happy too, even if I complain a lot about KFC, I am happy that I get to complain about trvial things, and not life and death matters. I believe that everybody on this forum is educated enough to know how to use a computer, to surf the net, almost all have a computer and internet access as a basic necessity, in other words rich enough, so cannot complain about poverty, starvation, education and what have you. There are of course people who are really poor, and every day is a struggle, but I don't think it is anybody on this forum.
Do you think the compliments came from the smiling pics which we posed sometime back, a nationwide event ?
If you are not at the top echelon, please bear with some inconveniences. If you can come to terms with these, you'll be much happier. If you have kids and all of them are constantly clamouring for new toys but you have a fix income, you can't satisfy all their demands too. In the end, you can only tell them to cap their expectations.
Do you have any idea how much stress there is?
One thing I agree with in the video...drug pushers are executed.
When doing my BCTC I was unhappy that healthy and fit foreigner males above 21 years of age are given citizenship or PR and not have to serve. The smooth talk is that their children will have to serve but not them.
I want them to do exactly what I was doing in BCTC.
Whatever I want them to do, I will do first. e.g. charge up the hill or crawl under the barbed wire or attack the FOFO. Then they have to do it after I have shown them and done it first. This is to ensure they cannot claim unfair.
After just ONE try of BCTC.
90% of these foreigners turned citizens/PRs will pack up and leave on the next flight out and never come back.
