Writing in the Sydney Morning Herald, an Aussie journalist offers this stereotypical 'tourist' view of the Lion city: 'In a country where people are regimentally law-abiding and clean, happiness and civility are also deemed to be in need of outside enforcement. Visitors to Singapore know they will be greeted by spick-and-span public spaces, hoovered grounds and streets free of chewing gum and spit; yet many say there is no such assurance of finding good manners and a caring society'In reality, it just happens to be a cleaner and more disciplined place than many 'developed' cities. Nor would Singaporeans appear to be 'regimentally law-abiding' to anyone who's observed their behavior for any length of time!This observation by a 'long-time resident', however, absolutely nails the Singaporean psyche!'"The problem is the sole concern of most Singaporeans is money and economic wellbeing," a long-time British resident says. "The only reason the churches here are packed to the rafters is because people attend in order to network."'http://www.smh.com.au/world/singaporeans-asked-to-chew-on-th...------------------------------GG Home Fool
