    Default The Happiest Singaporean?



    March 20, 2008 09:53pm

    A SEARCH has been launched for the happiest person in Singapore, where a recent survey found that 90 per cent of its population feel that life is stressful.

    The aptly named Philip Merry, chief executive of consulting firm Global Leadership Academy, has been tasked with locating the cheery resident.

    ``Being based in Singapore and having trained thousands of people across the globe, one distinct trend I have noticed is that despite material wealth and economic success, Singaporeans consider themselves less happy than many other people,'' Mr Merry said.

    ``Singaporeans fret about financial security and retirement. Many Singaporeans are concerned they do not have enough money to grow old gracefully and that seems to make them unhappy,'' he said.

    Despite its affluence, a poll by international advertising firm Grey Group found that nine in ten people living in the city-state said they were stressed.

    Citizens aged 18 years and above can be nominated for the title and the winner will be given an overseas holiday.

    Mmmm someone who have achieved the 5 cs due to his or her "talent" and dont have to worry about rising costs as he or she is rich enough to shrug the increases as a pittance, someone who finds the government efficient and effective and helping them make more money, someone who is so touched that Singaporeans are so "united" in its search for Mas Selamat.

    Just my thoughts on who will be Happiest Singaporean.

    mr lim is our role model

    his ever-lasting spirit

    along with his brilliant yellow underpants, symbolic of his never say die attitude, along with his superb talent at picking eyebrows

    are traits which will be remembered forever more.
