Know the game, play by it, play by their rules and try to beat it. Life's tough and that's a fact. It could be better but it could be worst too.

    We also can't really define what is really "living it up" as each one has their own version of it. I have seen the really poor who deserves a break and I have seen similar who put themselves in that poor house too or stay that way. We would like very much to help everyone but well...in life..some ( or alot of the uninformed) will slip through the crack.

    In any case, till something better comes along or a solution can be found to make things "fairer".... there is only one person you can change and change your opinion and direction in your life and that is the one you stare at in the mirror everyday. No use waiting and mopping about. Do something about it. It might take a long while before you succeed but do something.

    I am just abit annoyed I guess as I just have been pushing one of my "junior" staff ( if you can call a 44yr man junior store man) to make a change in his life. After a year it all fall on deaf ears and he is living the company at the end of the week and he is a car crash waiting to happen not long from now I am sure. He is not alone. I have tried to mentor others to make something of themselves and to be always moving up, work hard, focus and be willing to learn new things but again this is failing. Hs is not my first but there has been alot. All Singaporean and all not willing to put in abit more. All very quick to blame someone else, all waiting around for a break ( from god to govt to lady luck) I have not given up on others who I will have to nurture but it is a mindset ...a situation I see in many Singaporean. Even some of the hardworking ones...working hard but not working smart. Oh well... I can only care so much about their lives as I have my own but it is sad when you see people wasting away like that and for sure... for sure... they will lost their job not only to some foreign worker....it could be someone younger and Singaporean too.
    easier said than done, isn't it true? majority (or who got "bigger guns") wins is not the way forward.

    the oni organism that follows doggly (rarely challenging) the rule of the masses are ants, bees & the likes of them. yes they work in an efficient manner, they all work for their queen. today in Sg, we got no queen (the pun is not intended). but we're not ants or bees, individuals count as much as the masses.

    why talk like bobian, "just follow loh"...

    OT liao...

    Agreed and disagreed.

    Both are important. we have to look at both parties as they are all part of Sg.

    Individual unit is core that make the whole. However if the majority agree to a standard the individula may have to join in. Of cause the individual voice will be weaker if he disagreed.

    There are many terms to address the mass. Some call them people power, e.g Philippine. In America it is known as Democracy. It is always the mass that changes a dynasty.

    In any society, the mass determines the norm. Nobody can go against the norm.

    yar... it really is alarming....
    for those taking mrt, just take a closer look and you will realise that every other person speaking is practically either from india or china...

    for those eating at food court, every other person manning the stalls are from china...
    sooner or later, its going to be all stalls at food courts is manned by china ppl...

    you feel that you are a minority in some country...

    You are right. We should remove 1.5 millions of them and give the space to our NS young and able men.

    Our young men could join the construction industry and get soil just like what they had done during NS day.

    They can also help to keep the HDB estate clean by joining Cleaning Industry or become a server or cook at the food court.

    We can also take the opportunity to remove all the 'Ang Moh' and promote out young able men and women to sit at the post i think the 'maybe capable' to handle.

    Obama is a foreign worker. We cannot and cannot effort to employ him.

    I think I have a solution to the unemployment in Singapore.

    Horay! Horay!
