    Default Lets do our own POLL : Are you HAPPY being Singaporean, living/working in Singapore?

    Ok, somewhat different from "Being Proud to be a Singaporean". ie, you go to Taiwan, Indonesia, you tell the people over there Singapore has this lah, has that, bagus etc.

    Are you HAPPY to be a Singaporean, to be working here, living here?

    you never live and work in other countries, how can you compare and how would you know if it's better or not

    you must close your eyes and imagine.

    for example, when i imagine working in france, i imagine that my boss is a hot french lady:



    and that she wears nothing but a fruit hat on her head all day in the office.

    by this way of deep concentration, i have fully comprehended what it's like to live in france. boy, is life there really, really good.

    Good indication.

    How to ensure that those are Singaporean for both.

    What would you do to make Singapore a good place to live?

    I am not working full-time yet but as a student, but I do know that the education system in S'pore is tougher than other countries like Aust.
    But education here is well recognised in many countries (i.e. China/Taiwan/Aust).

    It is not true that one has to be permanently happy. Something is wrong with you if you are happy ALL of the time. Even when one is unhappy, sometimes one continues with present arrangement because the other side's grass is not greener. Unless there is threat to one's life, (as in Vietnam persecuting Vietnamese of Chinese origin after 1975 & as in Hitler persecuting the Jews in Nazi Germany) most people grin and bear it.

    If you want to compare countries to live in there is always + and -.

    i would like to move to the antartica to hunt polar bears

    there, there will be no people blocking the entrance to my little ice sleigh.

    there, i don't have to pay taxes on the fish i catch.

    there, the xmm are all pure and untainted by capitalism.

    there, it is not so hot, and the penguins that are my companions will not be kiasu.

    there, i will be the native there, whole land to myself.

    it is really a better place than singapore.
