Yes, it’s a shame the SARS outbreak failed to wipe out half the population of Singapore, because in Singapore, you find:
-narrow-minded imbeciles (a hyperbole, if it offends you) + government ass-kissing brainwashed nobodys who think Singapore is the centre of the Universe
-arrogant middle-income earners who dress more flamboyantly than billionaires
-white-ass loving SPGs (of course the tourism industry isn’t complaining)
-people who speak Singlish with pride and are thinking of glorifying it further, to the horror of their government, to the delight of moi.
-frequent Karaoke patrons
-American-accented true blue homegrown locals (which makes you wonder how many hours they spend watching American TV, which of course we know is mostly crap)
-people like Mr Pita
-money laundering institutions and agencies of all trades & industries (which happens in most capitalist environments but here, they are so blatant and scheming)
Yes, it is this half of the population, this half who mostly hold the Singaporean passport, this half who pisses me off day in and day out, who should’ve been wiped out by SARS.
I’ve practically lived here since 7. Most people who don’t piss me off and are what you call, worldly, possess common sense in the universal sense of the word, are PRs, expats, foreign students, exchange students visitors, etc.
Of course I’ve met very nice Singaporeans but this bunch is rare, and they mostly are thinking of leaving the country once they get the chance.
The rest just can’t entertain the fact that a Malaysian who went through their education system isn’t proud of being mistaken for a local, can’t wait to leave the country and casually points out atrocities staring at them in the face (but they’ve never come to terms with the reality of how they got duped into the propaganda)
