    Default Channel 8's 9pm gangster drama set me thinking...

    ... about gangs in Singapore.

    Any of you here encounter any gang problems recently in your part of Singapore?

    Someone stare at you? Then ask you "Kua simi kua?"

    I'm assuming that the local media does not report all gang related activities.


    I stay at redhill so all the old gangsters are only playing chess at the market, no problems... very peaceful

    If it was 20yrs ago, at my area, the "kua simi kua" problem was quite bad, recently, I choose to ignore if any...

    those gangsters are either selling salted eggs or in the old folk homes now.

    The old gangsters in my place normally fight among themselves with Taichi in the morning.

    Very slow motion. They are not going to hurt anyone.

    In the afternoon they watch "Chow Yuen Fatt" gangster movies to remind them of their heydays.

    At night they are generally in bed by 8pm.

    Those so called "gangsters" in Singapore are nothing but punks wannabe.

    The largest worldwide supplier of recreational drugs in the '70s and '80s was actually run by a Singaporean syndicate in Amsterdam.
