    The concrete that forms your house isn't made in Japan you know. Cause for concern there.

    even greater cause for concern....just what corners were cut so that the contractor could get the construction bid from the developer. is the trend now gearing towards lowest quotation(pay peanuts get ****?) or paying the actual amount required?
    You wont see me much less remember me but i am the guy who makes you look good.

    It matters to a certain extent, for example if I pay top dollar, I expect top quality and most of the time top quality products are from the originate country like Nikon Japan, Honda Japan, BMW Germany etc.

    These manufacturer will only setup their assembly line in cheaper country for lower end product line, if the cost saving is pass down to consumer than I will not complaint, however if the manufactur insist on charging top prise to maximize their profit, then I will not buy, like Toyota Altis and Vios

    but even if some items were made in, say japan, doesn;t mean japanese worked on them. prolly some cheap immigrant worker assembles the parts. we should know mah. made in singapore by malaysians, china girl and filipino pinoys. how? low quality meh?

    hahah, and one more thing...most of the buildings in singapore tho made in singapore but made BY bangala!

    so...i don really mind where they are madelor , as long as i got a good price vis-a-vis quality.
