Celebrating Singapore

Taking a magnifying glass and poring over the map carefully, it was with great effort that I found this little place called Singapore. Take another map before the 19th century and you would not find it. And this little piece of rock of 4 million people, actually about 2.5 mil if the non citizens are not counted, is hell of a rich country today. Without any natural resources, we are standing among the rich nations of the world. The most remarkable thing is that we have so much money as a state that we literally did not know what to do with it. Hey, we are talking about a few hundred billions in US currency. The boys must be going ga ga and getting dizzy in their heads. How to put those numbers into perspective? And we trotted around the globe with a handful of rich nations talking about where to put our money. And all the big corporations and nations in need of money will come knocking at our doors, taking a queue number and waited patiently to be welcomed in. Unbelieveable, but this is our achievement. We have plenty of cash. The little catch is that we don't have the people to take care of it. And we do not know what to do with it. So we do charity for the world. We are the number one philantrophist to the world. Take a bow. We deserve it.

HeHe, at the rate our reserves are being flushed down the toilet, we'll crash from the world's philanthropist to the world's pauper with a begging bowl in our hands!

At that time, all our so called "friends" will treat us like lepers and our "foreign talents" will be exiting Changi International as fast as you can say, "I'm out of this dump"!

Confucian.

I celebrate the eventual collapse of Singapore by chanting Matilah Singapura 100 times a day. :-)

Hi Confucian, when Singapore economy turns around, will you be saying the same thing "i'm out of this dump"?

I think you have never stayed overseas before. Perhaps you should give it a try and give us your frank version one year later.
