Experiencing Singapore (17): Remarks on Singaporean Culture as well as Working Culture

As strange as it may sound, I quickly felt at home in Singapore. Yet, there are some downsides you should also be aware of. One is that the young generation gives rise to worries. You find increasing numbers of men and women with tattoos, even though it is a far cry from the West. Obesity… Continue reading Experiencing Singapore (17): Remarks on Singaporean Culture as well as Working Culture

Experiencing Singapore (16): Social Engineering

Singapore does Social Engineering right. In the West, we promote homosexuality and prime kids for tolerating advances by pedophiles — some German states have a curriculum for sex education in kindergarten where kids are encouraged to explore their own sexuality, with members of their own as well as the opposite sex, and all 2,500 other… Continue reading Experiencing Singapore (16): Social Engineering

Experiencing Singapore (13): A Highly Intelligent Society

Let’s for one brief second, assume that the concept of IQ is valid, and that, consequently, the concept of an IQ of a nation makes sense as well. I fully subscribe to that notion, but if you’re not, then get off my blog and educate yourself first before you come back. In every international comparison… Continue reading Experiencing Singapore (13): A Highly Intelligent Society

Experiencing Singapore (12): Meritocracy and the Pressure-Cooker Education System

How many Western leaders are there that look like respectable men? Okay, we got Trump. We also have Trudeau, Macron, and a whole bunch of other clowns. There are people in leading positions, sometimes ministers, who dropped out of university. Handing out positions of powers due to quotas is also common. In Singapore, you have… Continue reading Experiencing Singapore (12): Meritocracy and the Pressure-Cooker Education System

As a consequence, you get to enjoy around 30 degrees Celsius all year round. On top, there is very high humidity, which some seem to dislike. What I found generally… Continue reading Experiencing Singapore (9): Dealing with the Climate

Experiencing Singapore (7): The Quality of the Women (Yes, it is high!)

I expect my readers to be almost exclusively Western men. If you’re a Western woman in Singapore and reading this, I can only say one thing, based on 100% of Western women I have encountered in Singapore: LOL. The Westerners in Singapore don’t want you, and the local men don’t find you attractive either, so… Continue reading Experiencing Singapore (7): The Quality of the Women (Yes, it is high!)

Experiencing Singapore (6): The Geographic Downside

From a geopolitical perspective, the biggest problem of Singapore is that it is a first-world country smack in the middle of a bunch of backwards Muslim third-world countries such as Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Cambodia, and many others. I don’t care how “offended” you are by this statement, but it is clear as day that the… Continue reading Experiencing Singapore (6): The Geographic Downside

Experiencing Singapore (5): Multiculturalism in Practice

Singapore is a multicultural country. The Chinese are the majority ethnicity. I think there are around 70% Chinese. I’m now pulling numbers out of thin air, but there are more Malays than Indians. Let’s just say there are 20% Malays and 10% Indians. In reality, it doesn’t really matter. During my stay in Singapore there… Continue reading Experiencing Singapore (5): Multiculturalism in Practice
