First world city infested with third world bed bugs
The invasion of FTs comes with the invasion of bed bugs. The notification and request for help to get rid of these pests are getting more frequent. And hopefully bed bugs are not the only pests sharing the homes of HDB flat owners. They crawl up and down the walls of flats and the flats next door. Wait a minute, heard that they are commonly found in bus seats as well. Now, what about the airline seats they flew in from?
What about hair fleas or lice? This one hops around and the closed proximity in the trains and buses are idea environment to share them around. The thought of fleas/lice already makes my whole body feeling like they are crawling all over me. We may need another few decades to make it to first world as we consolidate our gains of third world FTs living among us, including bed bugs and fleas/lice. And TB is also making an appearance in greater number.
Maybe with more integration we will get use to them and be more like them. Our population has actually grown many more millions of bed bugs, fleas and lice are included. Welcome to the new Third World city, once First World. I was joking earlier about returning to the past, to the Third World. Now it is not a joke. We got rid of many of these unhygienic pests and bragged about a clean and green First World city. It is going on a rewind down memory lane.
