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

Yeah I totally agree… though I like the food part best 😛

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!
bev, i really like reading your entries and although i don’t comment much, i hope i can stay on your friends list and continue reading them!

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.

Follow me on my adventures through Sydney, Shanghai, and now Singapore. We are all about eating fab food, dressing up, and finding cool things to do!
