    Much like the old saying - When In Rome, Do What The Romans Do

    While I agree the AngMor is correct in pointing out the fault of S'poreans.... I totally disagree with the method or words used. You do not stay in the House of your Host and yet use such language to criticize the host... unless u plan to leave asap.

    Which could be why we complaint about 'Chinaman/woman' or any other FT here.... but would keep quite when we are over there, in China.

    "Kopitiam" vs "Buy and Sell" forums, "Kopitiam" vs "Buy and Sell".... forums.... hmmm very hard to see which one is more beneficial..

    Some years back I used to cycle in London.. One morning got whacked by a car. She got off only to check whether her car was ok (it was not.. thank God I was not hurt..).. Her "Didn't see you while turning" and can't be bothered with you just shocked me. I just cycle off and left her there inspecting the scratches...

    Respect others and also ask to be respected. Does it really matter local or foreign, pedestrian or car driver or cyclist, Nikon or Canon (oops I forgot the Sony!)?

    But seriously.... what's this all about?!

    When in Singapore if you are not prepared to drop your cockney twang and embrace Singlish, you are in serious trouble.

    that is a fair comment.

    the world is hardly a good enough place for any of us.

    that said, a wise man also once said that if criticism was given, and there was truth in it, we should look less on the approach (though yes, criticism on the approach is also fair enough).. and gain the truth from it and work on it. that is the way to progress.

    but then again, no one's that perfect.

    If we are stupid Singaporeans how are we able to build a Nation that attract FT.
    without FTs, i don't think singapore would be where she is now. if you take out all the FTs from singapore, i wouldn't want to imagine what state she will be in.

    btw, we always labeled the ang-mohs here as 'chow ang-moh'. if that ang-moh is a singaporean, would we still labeled him as 'chow ang-moh'? so is it that only singaporeans are a great bunch of people and the rest are otherwise?

    Why not?

    I think the world is too good a place for a humble man like me with little means and little needs.

    that's right... no one force him to come here. but the thing is, he came, he experienced life here and he commented on it (the negative side of living in singapore). he is not wrong in writing that article. everyone has the right of opinion.

    it's like singaporeans always mentioned that JB is a dangerous place to go to... but wtf... they still go there in throngs. double standard? on one hand, criticize like F***, on the other hand... still go because things are relative cheaper there. it's the same thing... nobody force singaporeans to go to JB... but they still go.

    so are you trying to say that singaporeans have every right to criticize others while others cannot do the same about singaporeans?

    Ya many countries cannot go on without FT, even cities like Shanghai & Bejing also need FT from other outlying provinces.
    I like your label "chow ang-moh"

    you can easily, easily find something if you wish, to be unhappy about with the world.

    anyone of us can.

    the difference is seeing that the world is not just a half-full glass, not just a half-empty glass, but both. acknowledging that it is flawed is just as important as seeing the good in it, else we are just delusional.

    If the one who wrote the article had been a Singaporean, would he have faced a similar degree of criticism?

    Telling him to get out of Singapore since he has so much complaints about it is a weak argument, IMO.

    It's basically saying that Singapore should remain in this moribund state.

    In fact, I think this issue might wake up the ideas of Singaporeans. It might be a blessing in disguise after all.

    Then again, considering how apathetic(or rather bochup) most Singaporeans are...

    I humbly think that the discussion start had more to do about getting around a big city rather than anything else. Had the original writer thought for a minute before start writing, difficulties in moving around exist / existed in any big city for a very long time. Even standing in Japanese trains as you rightly pointed out.

    I would find it hard to find one simple reason to be unhappy about with the world.

    But I can easily find one hundred reasons to be happy about with the world.

    And pay attention when you ride. Donít stop in the cycle lane. In bunches. Or turn your bike perpendicular to the lane (thatís a really smart thing to do. Typically teenage girls. And these little bitches will be driving cars soon. I can only hope they have been killed off before they have the chance to do real damage. Or procreate).
    LOL! Despite the coarse language, I have to agree with his points, especially the East Coast Park kids and their numbskull parents. I suppose these parents are huge believers of Darwinism
