Made in Singapore?


Modi wants to turn India into another manufacturing hub and came out with his Make in India slogan. His vision is simple and clear, products and services made in India, ideas originated in India, and made by the Indians and sold at Indian prices.
China, the factory of the world, has Made in China products and services. The products and services are made in China, by the Chinese and at Chinese prices. There is a slight difference. Many of the products and services originated from the West, the ideas from the West, but copied and modified and produced at much lower cost to sell at much lower prices.
What is Made in Singapore? It used to be made by Singaporeans and to some extent Malaysians working here. The ideas were western and some from Singaporeans. Today, Made in Singapore is no longer what it used to be. Many have ideas originated not from Singaporeans, and the products and services are made and provided by Third World citizens. The only thing that is still Made in Singapore is the price. Oh, the system and infrastructure could still be Singaporeans. The delivery and execution are hardly or barely Singaporeans. Walk into any hospitals and you may think you are in some Third World countries served by Third World citizens.
The universities have been taken over by foreigners and literally run by foreigners. The banking and finance industry, the IT industry, some manufacturing products and services, the medical industry, the human resource industry and what else, God knows, are all made and provided by foreigners.
We used to laugh at the Proton car that the local content is very little. Now Made in Singapore brand, how many percent is Singaporean? Can we still call it Made in Singapore, Singapore quality, served and provided by Singaporeans and charging Singaporean prices?
What is Made in Singapore? What is Singapore?

Our days are over! Period. The moment you used cheap labour to hold back salary, more jobs would have to go to 3rd World citizens. The whole machinery would slowly drain of Singaporeans who could not compete with these people who demand lower wages. On the other hand, government could not control inflation so real wages for Singaporeans are dropping from year to year. There is no motivation from Singaporeans. What innovation we are talking about? Taxi license? Uber contract?....

Rb //What is Singapore?//

"Who am I?"

"我是谁?"

Where to start?

"Who or rather what is the 'I' ?"

"谁是'我'? 什么是'我' ?"

Ok ok, stop the round about .....

The subject is about this little red dot?

The "I" is this little island about 718 Sq Km in size?

Who or what then represents "I"?

Merlion?

What animal is that?

A mermaid?

Or a lion?

Neither?

Who am 'I'?

"Chiap Cheng"?

The Saddest Phenomenon in Sin now is that the Sinkies are cynical of their Leeders and frowning on the Singapore Brand.

How long more can Sin hold despite the Non-stop propaganda in the State Media?

Imagine Armed Police Officers running away and hiding from the Little, read minor, Little India Riot.

And after that we have Rulers telling Sinkies to face terrorism with guts and fight terrorism anytime.

Lol.

The Sinkie opposition, of course. This one where got and also cannot have foreigners, tio bo?

And look at their quality and strength, good or not, u say lah?

And if this "Made in Singapore" by all Sinkies only is not even good, what else can be good? If ownself not good, why blame "Made by foreigners" for not good?

Yes! Waking up! Waking up!

Singapore has to be very very careful!

Hope not.

There are many many products and services that are still Singaporeans. For Products there is the cardboard collected by old age Singaporeans, for services there are the taxi services, foodcourt table-cleaning services, security guard services. These are still Singaporean. So why is Redbean so uptight? Relax Redbean, Singapore will prosper and all Singaporeans will live a Swiss standard living in the future. There are so many things Singaporeans should be proud of, namely, one of the most expensive cities in the world, best universities run by very qualified people from India and the west. Singapore has the best MRT and highly efficient police and arm forces. What more do you want? The best thing for Singapore is the Government. So Singaporeans, one and all, be happy, very very happy.

Sgp is fantastic.

Cardboard Policeman is able to deter crimes.

Machines are able to collect money.

Maybe a cardboard president can ensure a benevolent regime in Sin.

Haha......

Watch US Senator Elizabeth Warren question the CEO of the giant bank Wells Fargo over its massive fraudulent activities.

She does not give face.
She is persistent in her questioning.
She does not let let the CEO "siam" her questions.

"You should resign, you should give back the money you made while this scam was going on, and you should be criminally investigated by the Department of Justice and the Securities and Exchange Commission. This just isn't right.... The only way Wall Street will change is if executives face jail time when they preside over massive frauds."

Made in singapore are 3 words a consummer must avoid like toxin. Months back. I walked passed simlin shop and saw a wireless electronic product label made in singapore. Out of supporting singapore, i bought it. There were similar products made in taiwan. Result was: it did not work. I was asked to go to UBI crescent the factory for "repair". New stuff day one out of the box. The entire staff there were speaking takalogue. The staff installed the product i brought again on his pc, he was unable to show me it worked. After one over hours, they gave me a brandnew package, the exact product ask me to go try it.
Another toxic made in singapore product? I was smarter than the them, i would not come "bark" to them again. I went to the shop to return the new product and ask for a more expensive taiwan made product, to offer the shop an incentive to exchange with me the toxic made in singapore product. I did not tell them that the product they sold did not work.

Wastage is something all of us hate to face. Spoiled foods wastage, we feel the pain. Spoiled electronic products take away space to keep with slight hope of reparing them working again. That is something i hate most. Any one will think like me: the product must work. Not for made in singapore.

I can tell readers why: singapore s supply chain on labor has totally damaged singapore s reputation. If employers are forced to hire citizens, we can know the standard as we know their educational standard. If employers are free to hire pinoys and indians, we cannot guarantee the results as we do not know these people s education at all. But singapore govt assumed foreigners are "talents". That is the results. The xport (non oil) is declining. The external debts of singapore increased rapidly.
Yahoo published on 7 Sept. Singapore has external debt USD1.76 trillions, as world #10th highest. Higher than china s external debt.
If compared to Sweden of citizens 5 millions, Singapore is heading for no U turn road. Sweden has external debt of 0.15 trillions only.
Which country is safe on course to future? Sweden. IMF recommends external debt should be about 150% of export. Singapore s non oil export is only 12.5 billions sgd. The external debt is >10 times its export.

In simple words, singapore is losing out under the present govt. Very greatly on the decline. The main reason is: hiring the unskilled labor to do the skilled jobs. The products are toxic and cannot sell in export markets.
Voters 61% are still hopeful. They will face the real retrenchment on their way as non oil export is not a bluff job. Export markets are like consummers in singapore: they dont want to buy rubbish to pile up wastage. And S$ is an adjusted upward game. Importers are not stupid as suppliers are abundant. Singapore has no unique products in export.

So what's the issue for the ruling PAP when they can still win elections with 70% votes, even HDB pigeonholes can cost up to $1 million and the streets and even Hong Lim Park are very peaceful?

Isn't this every govt's dream, never mind the country may be in shit?

Heard that a housewife is in coma and fighting for life when
hit by electric scooter ridden by a 17-year-old youth.

Electric scooter again! Hope is not made in Singapore.

Sharing of paths can be very very dangerous to pregnant ladies
and seniors!

The sharing of paths must be stopped immediately before further
accidents!

Sad!

Too bad, a housewife is hit, and not a PAP MP.

Or else PAP will sure do something about it if a PAP MP is hit.

The 61% support for pap was a real condition when one old man is taken out by nature.
Watch the words "taken out by nature".
The 70% was on a condition for an old man s passing. Pap cannot create another one same condition.

The nature will continue to take out some old men from pap. The 2 trillions usd external debt is conditioned on interest payment and principal repayment. Not matter if Yellen is playing speech drama, her interest rate increase will come after the US election. It will cause more retrenchment in Singapore whose debts they cannot pay due to poor quality of products they cannot find export buyers.

The immigration for E pass and S pass are still going strong. Many citizens will be out of jobs.
Again, pap s 61% is likely to go back to 55%+- in coming election when more old men are "taken out by nature".

U cannot be too happy as i have seen pap supporters now holding on to 1 or 2 high end condos having cash problems to pay for the loans as rental return is not sustainable.

The present pap s sell your home and dont work policy is good for show only. The E pass and S pass are not making money for their employers even they take $3100pm and return $1600pm to employer. This kind of employment will drive down the quality of products.

The pap team s plan to replace citizens in favor of foreign talents to run the economy is going full swing like what RB s po said. But i see the results can be devastating for the young generations future, and they are forced to vote for non pap govt, as they want jobs and increments. pap is doomed.

All leaders in democracy world have realised one thing - have to keep the voters poor and dim so they cannot revolt. To achieve that, all good jobs will have to go to foreigners/pr/ep. Only lousy jobs and unemployment will go to voters to keep them poor and dim. The west has been importing lots of migrants even if unemployment is sky high. They even tell a big fat lie that because the people do not want those jobs which only poor and dim voters will believe that.

Made In Singapore? ?

Got many, whilst companies manufacturing motor vehicles worked their butts out among competitors, Sinkie government just have a printing machine and churned out Paper COES that made trillions out of you.

Just install some tower gallantries and collect hundreds of thousands dollars from.you. Next they collect not enough and have GPS toll collections

Just switch on your engines of your vehicles and just move an inch and you start to pay.

Just build HDB flats at a fraction of price and sells at thousand percent profits.

These are made.in Singapore technology

- You mean the "foreign workers' levy? I think it's the PAP government that collects the money correct?

Who ended up losing their jobs to these foreigners?
- I think it's Singaporeans who lose our jobs correct?

So what's wrong with collecting more money?
- as long as Singaporeans keep voting PAP ... nothing wrong right?
