    Yeah, I’m proud to be a Singaporean, though we are only an island. I love it here because we are multi-cultural, multi-national and of course the variety of food we have here. =P

    I think that when it comes to these attacks, the point is not to kill people but to prove that they can shut down a city and create chaos. They could have placed the bombs elsewhere if they really wanted to kill a maximum of people. After the attacks the whole transport system stopped worked, shops closed, all theatre cancelled their performances,… London was a ghost town last night.

      True.. but then the country just picks itself up and the people grow stronger, so defeats the purpose :X

      Plus, what if we decided to retailiate to also prove that we can shut down cities.. could do it 10 times worse to the terrorists, technically 😉

    It sounds like a lot of fun being Singaporean.

    The U.S. is large. There is a lot of diversity. Probably what is most common from border to border in the U.S. is that we have a lot of priviledges. And we think others should have a lot of priviledges.

      Yeah SG’s pretty similar 🙂 Everyone’s bilingual, many are trilinguil and the entire country is a total mix of various races and cultures.. you won’t find a suburb with just one type of people, I love that

    well, there’s always a positive way of seeing things. i’m proud to be a singaporean! we’re unique in our ways leh. 😉

    these are very interesting points you put up. it’s all so true but we’re so used to it that we didn’t realise we’re like that.

      I never really noticed most of the points either until I’ve lived overseas.. and suddenly what I didn’t like before becomes endearing, and what I never noticed before becomes special!

    i love being singaporean. ;p i think the fact that i’m studying overseas makes me sort of like singapore for what it is rather than bemoan all the things wrong with it. 😉 and the food is always good!

    Hehe.

    I remember getting that book as some gift(everyone in school got it) like a yr or so back and everyone was super amused by stuff inside.

    Maybe ‘cos it was about ourselves.
