Singaporeans are largely meek, kiasi and kiasu

Singaporeans, by and large, are a meek, kiasi, kiasu, don’t want to lose face and a lacking of street wisdom lot and if it were not for the MOS for Sustainability and the Environment, Desmond Tan’s parliamentary disclosure that >150,000 or 10% of our households are in arrears of their water bills and >12,000 of them owing at least $250, no members of the public would have known that.

To the pap government under lhl, I want you to know that I clap loud loud for you. I really do. (sarcasm).
I ask if this is not naked incompetence display of this pap government governing a meek and shhhh… population at the national level, then what is?

Everyone knows that water is life and any disruptions to predictable water supply to daily living can cause huge inconveniences to families, upheavals, quarrels, disharmony and more. Even the late MM ever threatened to send in our forces into Johore to secure our water supply should it be disrupted by the other side.

The one habit of my late grandmother was to boil a kettle of water every morning when she woke up and that habit of hers lasted for decades.

Personally, if I were desperate until I have to choose between owing my medical bills and risking legal debt collectors come harassing my family or my water supply risking possible disruptions due to non-payment, I would choose the former, anytime.

Suffering from the fallout of the Ukrainian war is not only unique to Singapore but in our case, it is made worst by a greedy and incompetent pap government under that useless son and everytime when I think or remember that they have demanded to be paid political salaries equal to what top people earn in the private sector but continues to deliver mere mediocre governance standards and results on the back of predictably new citizens and suckerporeans’ electoral support, I shake my head in resignation and I ‘pui’.

I appeal to the government to resolutely help our struggling citizens more in real, meaningful and lasting ways and not wayang or clever talking ways. Do not be a rich but unwilling to do more for your citizens government. You have thoroughly failed at arresting our plunging total fertility rate for decades, so please, don’t fail again this time!

Many of our more vulnerable citizens have yet to recover sufficiently from C19 and its accompanying challenges and the Ukrainian war has definitely compound their plight and struggles.

Surely we do not need for our people to start stealing water from public places such as hawker centres, markets or carparks etc before pap generals and scholars are willing to wake-up from their slumber and sit up because for goodness sake, ivy league universities don’t teach such things la.

Think.

  • Gaming the system:

    Sinkies have the mindset to game the system.

    From Kindergarten, PSLE, to UNi… to National Service to parking
    cars along double yellow & white lines… can keng, will keng.

    It runs in our DNA… even from the PAP.
    But they are much better equiped as they can create situations
    where they will win 1,000%.

    That idea trickles down though… to ah seng, Ismail and Veloo.
    and thats why there are so many rules, laws and restrictions here.

    Even Malaysians dislike us…

  • illiterate pap voters:

    why simon is saying, think?

    what is there to think about?

    it is a truth that when pap Lj said S$1,000 per month can HDB, clear as day it is a pap lie,

    it is a truth that when pap Lj said cannot eat degree, it is another clear as day lie.

    it is truth that when pap Ljs and pap Cbs said HDB is an asset that increases in value if cotton sheep voted pap, phew, what a lie. even pap Lj laulan wong had come out to publicly say HDB value goes to ZERO at the end of lease.

    on and on and on pap folks lie. yet we have here in TRE a simon who always talks and thinks as if without pap humans disappear from earth.

    what stupidity.

    our surmise is it is the result of a non degreed brain.

    the sage is correct. even if degree is from Horseshoe U it beats not having a degree at all.

    perhaps, the one exception is a degree from Sunway U. that one is an outsider, the once in a lifetime joke.

    otherwise, no need to think anymore. after 50+ years of seeing pap in action, what is there to think anymore?

    pap folks lie cheat and do all manner of wrongs especially in the ownself justify ownself S$m per annum they are paying each other.

    with S$m per annum in their bank accounts, the pap folks all say GST is good for you. ffff. if we can pay ourselves S$m per annum out of cotton sheep monies we also say 19% GST is not a problem. but when cotton sheep is barely making S$3,500 per month median wage, if they have a full time job, then 5% GST is already too much without going to the 9% mark.

    declaration. GST does not affect us. we make S$ from renting out our 5 room point block and we live in Johor and spend in ringgits.

  • Harder Truths:

    By meek you mean ballsless.

    Another trait is to KPKB even though they themselves are the culprits.

    People got the government they deserve. Learn to live with it, because come next election these people will do exactly the same thing.

    $inkies are doomed.

  • KNN Ai Hum Lah:

    The out-of-touch D*son boasted so proudly despite lifted restriction to wear mask when on open space so many Sinkies still wear mask. Sinkies just don’t want to inconvenience of taking it off and putting it back moving from outdoor to indoor.

    Wait till they totally lift the mask wearing for all let’s see how many still wear mask, then come and boast. So out of touch.

    LHL make the government act like a charity when dealing issue on PM salary and businesses but become very harsh with money for the poor.
    Last time, Trump is disobedient, we remove him from power by voting him out. We are very powerful. We can remove any leader in the world from power. Nobody can challenge our power. We have been very patient and merciful. LHL keep testing our limit and try to be disobedient. Enough is enough. We will vote LHL out.

    Yes, Singaporeans are dislike by Malaysians… just look at this Singaporean disgusting behaviour in petrol station .
    https://mustsharenews.com/pumping-petrol-jb/

    Many Singaporeans buy house and live in Malaysia. Instead of being grateful to Malaysia for enjoying good lives there, these Singaporeans everyday open Chee Bye loud mouth say bad things about Malaysia.

    Many Singaporeans are being disliked everywhere they go cos they are stinking loud mouth free riders.
    (petrol station scene is best evidence and they have no shame!!!)

  • PAP the Narcissist:

    SGpns by and (very) large has been corroded and abrased by PAP politics.
    Their balls had shrunken and continue to shrink.
    They are well and fully ignorant of their rights gradually melted away by PAP lies and PAP’s moral corruptions for decades.
    Last, there isn’t any nationalism character traits the PAP has build in all SGpns mindsets and behaviors.
    What silence that was so bloody loud that the Most Conspicuous Voice of Nationalism came from the very DEFENCE MINISTER of SG who has TO THANK the PRC and HK SAR for releasing the Armour vehicles. What was not published, that the Hen very likely thanked them for playing and scrutinizing the vehicles secrets.
    Was there anything damaged or disassembled – who knows.

  • John Doe:

    Here’s a bit of OFF point, pardon me – but it’s entirely RELEVANT and RELATED.

    By and (very) large, SGpns the majority of which are so so so bloody uncouth, uncivilized and hopelessly disrespectul towards fellow SGpns (and goodness, parents are the real culprits) – the behaviour of which I can attribute to PAP’s leadership behaviour examples set.

    Visit any branch of our libraries – a common place, belonging to all, anyone to be able to enjoy a quiet atmosphere to read, and perhaps not too far fetch, to calm nerves and stimulate well being (the quietness of its surrounding is destressing).

    But shockingly what can one see, real, before one’s very open eyes – the wild behaviour of students, children, toddlers, with or without in tow parents, all, creating so much of noises, by talking bloody loudly, running, shouting, and playing catching.

    This bloody eyesore is more shocking, when :
    1. Parents do nothing to control their bloody noisy running jumping children,
    2. Officers, employees, managers ALL BLIND towards this hostile environment.

    The library management MAKE NO EFFORTS to solve the noise problem. What are they for? What is a library for?

    Well in SG, all the libraries are like child care centers, meeting rooms, discussion points, game rooms, et al.

    One is lucky to find occasions of periods of serenity, or manage to secure a quiet spot for reading.

    The NLB DO NOT RESPECT the purposes of A library, and obviously they don’t know how to respect what is a library.

    Lastly who is the Chief Exec of NLB – deserved to be sack.

  • theforgottongeneration:

    Singaporeans are what they are TODAY is because of 50+ years under a system which also produced the most expensive PM in the world who turned out to be super-arrogant, damn incompetent, and very insecure. In other words, wrong or poor policies over too long a period under the fallacy of Ownself Check Ownself.

  • Sad:

    Sad to see so many cases of water bill arrear.
    Means these families are in bad shape and suffering.
    MOF should help them. Be more proactive.
    Help the family get out of their financial difficulties.
    Example a financial support for 6 months till the main breadwinner find a proper job etc

  • C’est la vie:

    ******
    Should there be theft of water or utilities, the obscenely paid public servants will simply, … increase fines and prison terms, or both !!! Job done.

    This is how Sg is defined, … hence a “fine city”.

    And no, these mercenary and merciless lot will not be extending a “helping hand” to the not so fortunate or those facing difficulties.

    This is how Sg is defined, … hence “you die your business”.

    The citizenry speaking up and out loud, … don’t make my toes laugh.

    This is how Sg is defined, … hence, a subservient, silent and shackled lot.
