I finally feel Singaporean

I queued up to vote this afternoon, and it was, for the first time in a long, long time, a queue that comprised only Singaporeans.

I haven’t been this proud to be Singaporean since we sent four swimmers to the Los Angeles Olympiad in 1984. Oh wait, that was when I was proud to be from ACS.

Yup, it’s been a while.

    apparently my Burmese neighbor was at the polling station too. The term Singaporean is very vague these days.

      Yes. It’s been ‘vague’ since the local chinese and opposition kept silent about the government intending to keep singapore’s racial and cultural balance in favour of the chinese. But then again, being a self-absorbed xenophobic twat, that’s probably lost on you.

    Hey Miyagi, where’d your ancestors come from? Geylang Serai? Other than the Malays, the rest of us are simply the daughters and sons of ‘old foreign talent’. Two sets of rules on the basis of whom came first. Ever wondered how the Malays felt when the Chinese grew in population, or how they felt when Lee stated that singapore must always have a chinese majority, or when the tudung was banned in schools, or sap schools set up, or discrimination became rife in the media and the economic arena, or, or, or……..

    Why don’t you get you head out of your xenophobic, racist, racially biased arse mate.

      Hey @330a46e22781ceb9eb038fb4ee649e0c:disqus stop calling me names. I’ll have you know, I was never afraid of Xenos. Not once. Not ever.

      Dude, that was totally uncalled for. In no way his post was even remotely xenophobic. He was just recalling the last time he felt proud being a Singaporean.

      When’s the last you feel proud being a Singaporean?

      Stop trolling and baiting for flames, please. Let’s keep it civil.
