Someone I know remarked: "if Hello Kitty or the reaction to the haze is anything to go by, Singapore would not be an independent nation in 50 years' time."

You agree?

The someone you know, is not observant. There are plenty of Singaporeans who are not bothered much about the haze + totally not interested in Hello Kitty.

Loss of independence has nothing to do with an insignificant lunatic fringe obsessed with a cat doll from hamburger joint.

It arises from a militaristic expansionist aggressor nation that dreams of hegemony. SG found that out in the Dec 1941 air raids and subsequently in Feb 1942.

What the land of Rising sun can't do militarily they do it with a cat doll.

Inside every cat doll there is a code that once deciphered can well create a tsunami with Japanese warships following it.

Unfortunately your friend may be more right than he himself knows.
Singaporeans like to focus on small, tangible issues instead of seeing the big things that are happening.

In the grander scheme of things haze is a weapon of war.

It will drive Singaporeans to mass migration to countries with clean air e.g. Canada, Australia, Scandinavian countries etc.

Because for a long time they were told to do so :) The big topics are for the big guys 'up there', ordinary people think about chicken rice, a house, utility bills ..
If then there is a small kitty coming along the way .. Now, that's something to shout and rave :bsmilie:

on one hand, singaporeans are well-off enough to bother with a cat with no mouth and not about when their next meal is coming.
on the other hand...

first world problems?

I'm going to blame McDonald as they have experienced the issues in the year 2000 with the Hello Kitty promotion.

Fast Forward to this year there was no risk assessment with the Hello Kitty promotion and valuable resources from the Hometeam was taken away to deal with the crowds.

The Hometeam should bill McDonald.

Nothing is stopping McDonald from running the Hello Kitty promotion for 3 months with ample stocks.

Problem is, now everyone wants to be on top, with the same mindset fixated on the small things instead of thinking wider

The strange thing is that the next one on top will make no difference.
Want to clean up a hawker center and big hoo ha instead of fighting dengue and negotiating haze treaty... like that, the cow council manager will be out of job...oh or was that the objective in the first place...hmmm
