My wife is here with me in the UK, and when she goes to the local gathering with our two girls, people usually ask," I thought you chinese only allowed to have 1 child?"
The funny thing is, we are chinese, but we are also singaporean. Singapore is very different to China. Its not because we are ashamed of being chineseor that there is a China that we have to keep explaining that we are chinese singaporean. Its rather that Singapore is often forgotten as a country in SEA, and a great place too! When we stay overseas, we are bringing a part of Singapore outside and sharing it with the world. All our efforts in international relations goes down the drain when people assumed that Singapore is in China! Its also an insult to the multicultural society we live in and to the other races in Singapore.
