The more difficult to reach, ''must be'' a better fruit?
This mentality is very strange in Singapore. In fact, I dun think it is something we are proud of. This mentality even has a name called 'Kiasu-ism'. Can you believe it? Even the Wikipedia has information about it!(Read what Zsolt feels about this mentality)
On theme day of November, Kim wrote very nice comments to me about what she heard about Singapore, being very forward looking in many aspects. I was glad. But being a Singaporean, sometimes I dun see eye to eye with Kiasu Singaporeans. This behaviour - it's very annoying and irritating behaviour:( I dunno why only Singapore is so famous for this? And it can be such a vicious cycle as many parents are teaching their children the 'wrong doings' with bad examples set. It is not gracious at all.
Why can't our people be recognise as more 'world-class' people?
