Reason 0025 : Ignorant Singaporeans

Nury Vittachi wrote the article "Rejecting Rejection" in this morning's edition of 'Today' newspaper. In the article, she mentioned that the mother of one of her readers, had advised the reader to read 'The Secret' for help and inspiration when the reader sent out 20 job application letters and all were unsuccessful.

A quote from the book read :" I would visualise a parking space exactly where I wanted it, and 95% of the time it would be there for me and I would just pull straight in."

In answer to this, Nury wrote :"this is one of the most eye-opening books I've ever read. When you put it down, you cannot help but think, Gosh, there is truly no limit to the awful rubbish people will buy."

I have not read the book but if the basic principle of this book is based on what is written above, I fully agree with what Nury has written.

My first thought when I read this article was that obviously, the author Rhonda Byrne had never tried finding a parking lot in Suntec City, Marine Square, or Tampines Mall during a weekend.

Further to that, seeing the number of weeks this book had remained on the Straits Times Bestselling Books list, it appears that Singaporeans had swallowed this load of crap hook, line, and sinker. Rhonda Byrne must be laughing all the way to the bank.

Why are Singaporeans so easily take in? Are they lacking in street-smarts, they do not read enough to be discerning enough, or is it they are just so stupid that they will fall for anything that is written by an ang moh and comes packaged prettily in glossy covers and crisp clean paper?

And without foreign talents, I wonder how long Singapore would survive with the decreasing population, especially with ignorant people like you. Go eat your own ass, sucker!

how can you just slam down a book that you have not even read, and are just going by on somebodys opinion??

Be professional, read the book, and then criticize. I've read the book and I am very insulted that you are calling singaporeans for reading and enjoying a book that you have not even had the initiative to read before to readily displaying your skepticism.

I dislike Singaporeans too, I've lived in Canada for 11 years now and I thought their politeness was just a myth before I got here, but it is not. They are the most polite people. 11 years I've taken that for granted, only when I went to Singapore did I realize it's true value. I'm of asian decent and when Singaporeans see that all decorum goes out the window. They shove you and walk in to you like their time is so much important than yours without even apologizing or acknowledging your even there or that you exist. A lady sneezed at the back of my neck on the bus, A dude walking by coughed at my face in Ion Mall. They spoke english to me like it's correct, it's FUCKING NOT. "can or not" ?! what the fuck, it's "can you do it or not", I'm not a english expert but I don't think I'm correct over foreigners. Very few drivers acknowledge your existence. When we were taught how to drive, we were told pedestrians first. Drivers in Singapore would rather plow in to you and a crowd before using their horn, I don't know maybe it's against the law to use them but that's what they are for and they don't even slow down for anyone, heck one time I believe one dude even sped up. Here's a tip, the smaller your world is the more ignorant you are. The entire world does not work like Singapore does, go out and see the world, I've been to places all over the world and only in Singapore have I seen this level of rudeness and racism towards other Asians, their fellow Asians. I live here in Canada and I can say that manners wise Singaporeans are the polar opposite of Canadians. I'm sorry but it's true, great chicken rice though I'll give you that.

I'm a Canadian and i live in Singapore.Singaporeans aren't that bad if you look at them from a different perspective. True they may not seem friendly at first glance and they may not be so welcoming and nice at first but they aren't terrible and evil.

yo dude singaporeans do not speak to u "can or not" thinking their right....well most of us know its grammatically incorrect but its just part of "singlish" so i do not know what you are complaining about.do not like it,go home.simple as that

Don't you have something better to do???~~?~~ hi

Singaporeans always feel they want to be above foreigners.

I will give you an example.

Sit in the MRT and gaze at all the people for a minute. Then take your fancy mobile phone.

Just see their reaction.

True, the singaporeans speak English incorrectly but they thought they are English master. And we who understand English better than then are forced to understand what they say in singlish.... ƪ(°͡▿▿▿▿°)͡ƪ

What the hell!!! I HATE SINGAPORE

Singapore is nothing but an ignorant, hostile dictatorship, run by the same families for yonks. The people are repressed and bigoted, and has some of the worst laws in the world, to restrict and curb fun and relaxation. My wife is malay. We went to Malaysia many times, however had to stay at her sisters in Ang Mo Kiu. I loved it when we crossed the border at Woodlands into Malaysia, which is a beutiful noble country, despite a few problems with corruption. Malaysians actually have character and courage. Singapore, a boring pedantic tyranny, filled with frustrated depressives.

@ William I suppose Malaysia is perfect. Malaysia is beautiful, I agree, but what right do you have to bash Singapore like that?

If you want to ensure that your battery functions properly, let it drain until the "recharge" light comes on before plugging it in to charge. The Pro version ($1.29) offers more interval settings, from every hour to every two weeks. Many men have found the Philips range of electric shavers to be a good solution because the inbuilt moisturiser makes for an easier shave that is gentle on your skin and irritation is reduced.

You stupid fuck... You realize that the Singaporean government can track you post ip by hacking into the site and btw the site owner can see the ip of all traffic on his site. Mabey thats why stupid fucks like you do too much algebra (fag) and don't see the obvious which is common sense. You should know by now that the government is a fucking dictatorship and they will probably agree with you but once the secret police track you down you will be arrested for rasicm yes rasicm because the stupid fucks don't want the world to know what Singapore really is.. A bratty nation full of closet homosexuals on the brink of eruption, much as their great friends in SA. You will be shamed and fucked in the ass as a punishment ( caning ), I would not be surprised if you take pleasure in it fag. Before you reply with ( "Chink! I call my gang lah! Singapore govarment so smaart and you so dumb haha! U will be kick out of singaporn ah! We are singaporn we are singaporn we will stand togedar to see our butholes scored!" "haha Chink! o soo dumb he spell dilro wrong haha!... Oh.. ) I am not in Singaporn ( thank buhda ) dumbass. Oh and before you threaten me with your " Bruce ree one inch Punch, that's the same size as your butholes insertion 96 hundred ( made exclusively in singaporn ) pecker. Oh and when you go back to school good luck being fucked in the ass by your principle and just FYI you probably can't reply in the next six to seven hours because your studying and cooling off by sucking your fathers clit.
LONG LIVE CONFUCIUS IN OUR SOULS, BITCH.

Singaporeans are neither good nor evil. I agree with Singaporeans are ignorant.

One good thing about the government is the protective bubble they've set up around us that keeps us from a lot of troubles (Singapore has a low crime rate, this absolute cannot be denied), but in the process made us ignorant of everything. Singaporeans are merely apathetic, they just don't care about things. We are not Satan but neither are we saints.

Just go then. We wouldn't want you either. Also, cursing us shows a disgusting and ugly side of you.

Okay no offense but I agree with some of the people who are against Singapore. First of all all around the world knows that Singapore is a fin and clean country but I think it would be better if they had more attractions, celebrate more events for example: Halloween, Christmas and more events. I agree that Singaporeans are smart but it would be better if they spoke in PROPER english rather than what they call "singlish". Nonetheless I think Singapore is good country but when it come to like universal studios, they would need foreigners to work for them like cosplays and all that. And also most of the foreigners come here because they think it's the safest country and it's also very clean, most of the foreigners here are just being patient with Singaporeans. Singaporeans need to have manners and politeness, especially the Malays after the "spitting incident near the woodlands" it just shows that Malays are a bit evil? I'm still in primary school but I've seen lots of Malay pupils in my school including other schools who play rough, steals things and says bad words. I learnt from my social studies teacher that Singapore was once a poor country but thanks to their grandfathers/grandmothers Singapore became a peaceful and clean country. Where's that kind of country? The president says that this country is a racial harmony country, they even celebrated that event! Where is the harmony between foreigners and Singaporeans? I'm also a PR so what's wrong with it? I only live here with my family because of my sister's illness,and they only have her medicine here. But really just face it Foreigners and other Asians are just more talented than Singaporeans, I know that Singaporeans are tired of their boss's hiring Foreigners instead of Singaporean but this is also their home. We have the right to say what we want! Some of the foreigners are just too bored here... They want to go and have fun in Singapore, Singapore is a really nice and clean country but it just needs more attractions. If the Singaporeans want the foreigners/PR'S out then I guarantee that Singapore will be one of the most boring country or even the most unpopular country in the world. I'm not taking either the foreigners side or Singaporeans side, this is just what I think.

Funny posts. It is crazy that you are so proud of being Singaporean and against foreigners when 90% of you (and the one ruling the country) were immigrants not long ago.

I am a foreigner living in SEA and I am sick of all this stupid ultra nationalism and government brainwashing so common in the whole region. If you came to my shitty country in Europe everyone would welcome you and you would be one more, why can't Asian people behave in the same way?
