    that is a very good point - i think the ts should listen to those who have been living in australia as asians - they would know best, no?

    anyone else - well, it's your guess how accurate they are.

    a warm smile and a "g'day" will always break the ice in Australia

    i was there for a total of 3 weeks and i only had one incident of teens shouting from a moving car.
    but my whole experience is good, nice and friendly people.

    in fact, friendlier than us Asians
    we tend to be more reserved by nature

    Same for me. Nobody bothers me in the street.

    I try to stay discreet.

    I've seen more racist behavior here than in Australia. It's almost institutionalised, albeit not in the rock-throwing and cussing form.

    If you're Singaporean Chinese, the shift in experience from a majority to minority pov will be one reason why most fellas think that racism is such a huge shock. It's not easy for some people who've not travelled abroad before, when they move from an existence in subconscious hegemony to a minority, albeit a well-off one.

    Interesting way to put it, but I could not say the contrary.

    Deadpoet mentionned it correctly. It is a rampant thing here.

    But if you wanna know? A possibility is to put yourself in the skin of someone from a lower income ASEAN country living here in SG and you will probably discover what ostracism in this part of the world means. The behavior against some maids here is a sufficient example.

    But this is all OT and I can feel the big steps of the moderator coming.

    So what will it be Murcielago? Overseas studies or home studies?

Australia is not full of a majority that is poor that resents the minority for being more well off than it so its ludicrous for you to even compare Indo with Aussie given the different economic and social values and conditions. I am not making light of the riots of Jakarta and i have never been so if you think that i have i suggest you find a quote that shows i did. What happened in Indo will NEVER happen in Australia. If you cannot accept i disagree with you then that's too bad because i certainly am not going to change my mind on the basis of your say so. and your weak argument of saying that what happened in Indonesia can happen in Australia. Now if you had said that it could happen to our neighbour up north...then i might be inclined to agree with you.
    Pauline was very good, but I won't talk politics here.

    I have been in OZ for 4 weeks in total and 5 years in NZ. I never encountered a single racism incident to me. May be I looked friendly.
    I love both countries. Nice scenery and friendly people. You know wat I greet and smile even I do not the person. Once I was culture shock when I back from NZ after 5 years. Most of the people in sg are not friendly. Place is too crowded and dirty (esp HDB), time is always not enough, weather is too warm and transport from A to B is horrible coz very packed like sardine and take too long to reach the destination.

    To me, there is not much different. But I find NZ is more friendly than OZ. May be I stayed there quite long. I hanged out together with kiwis, HK, TW, malaysian and even cambodian. You know wat I didnt hang out with singaporeans coz they just too arrogant and ignorant.

    Just to note ppl in sg always said "The Grass Is Not Always Green On The Other Side". This statement is not always the case. I see more the grass more green than in our country. People there are freedom and not so constraint and not restrictive. Refrain from using plastic bag have been implemented 10 years ago. And we are still struggle with it.

    Sorry just off topic a bit, let me give u an example. In singapore, we have 4 million ppl and 2 Universities whereas in NZ, they have 4 million ppl and 7 universities. Can you see the ratio?
