Just read the below comments from a reader in the blog.
‘For example, sinkies are put into pressure cookers from cradle to grave and guys have to sacrifice 2 precious years to serve national slavery ...... oops ...... national service ...... not mentioning life time yearly in camp trainings till 50, yearly IPPT tests and trainings, yearly ad hoc briefings, "suka suka weekends / public holidays mobilisation exercises " when u are celebrating your bd, having lunch/ dinner, looking after your new born etc?’
Is this the life of the average Singaporeans, whose main duty is to jaga the island day and night so that the foreigners can come here and get rich, take over the good jobs and may even take over the island? There are so many good stuff to guard and protect, but do the Singaporeans have a share of the good stuff and the good jobs when foreigners are even invited to be political leaders and CEOs of Singapore’s own institutions? Yes, yes, Singaporeans got no more talents. Without these foreign talents Singapore will go kaput. So no choice lah, better to be guards, still got jobs to do.
If Singapore doesn’t provide these foreigners with good jobs, they cannot provide jobs for Singaporeans. Then Singaporeans want to be guards also cannot. Be grateful and guard the island well.
