Singapore mustn’t become an ‘angry and bitter’ society

I, too, agree that Singaporeans must learn to be thankful for what we have.Most of us are blessed with shelter over our heads, good food on the table, a job and our children can go to school.
I’m a stay-at-home mum and I’m thankful that I can be home to take care of my two boys when my husband is working hard at his job.
I’m thankful that we can put food on the table, the children can study and we can enjoy the simple joys of life. Activities like going to the park, cycling or playing at the playground doesn’t cost us.

Recently, our family was privileged to go for a holiday in Sapporo, Hokkaido. We noticed that the Japanese are very polite and patient. They speak with smiles on their faces and the salesperson standing in Daimaru greeted everyone happily who passed them by despite having stood the whole day. We were very impressed. Nobody rushed at the buffet and they only took what they wanted to eat and could finish. The restrooms were clean and the places were not dirty. We were very impressed.

Two days ago, I visited a terminally ill church member at Dover Park hospice. After I left, I’m so thankful for the foreign nurses attending to the patients. Without them, who would do such jobs and with love and patience at that. Singaporeans are too spoilt.

I think we must learn to be thankful for our country. We must also be more gracious to foreign talents if they are really sincere in working and contributing to our economy.

Singapore should be a kind, gracious and loving country. Not complaining, angry and bitter. Then it will be a better place to live in. It’s the people that make Singapore.

    I fell in love with Singapore and with a Singaporean back in 1998. Sadly, whenever I go back there, there are too many sad memories, not only of her but also of the places that we used to go and that are no longer there – Taman Serasi food court, Marina Bay for steamboat, the beautiful library that is now a MRT stop. I have been keeping up to date with things in Singapore and think that although Singaporeans have a point when there are many people who come there who do not want to contribute, those who love Singapore and who want to contribute to its society should continue to do so and try hard to make Singapore even better than it already is. It is a beacon to its surrounding area.

    Cheers
