hi:) i have recently been made aware of things happening behind "closed" doors in Singapore. I have lived my entire life in this country, believe it or not, I never knew this was happening. I mean, on the outside (or even inside) everything looked so fine and dandy. I did not even have the slightest clue about the other side.
I just saw the singaporerebel video on youtube (pardon the lag), and read afew of the comments posted. Funny how Singaporeans these days are satisfied with mere shelter, food and a basic pay. Doesn't seem like the sort of environment you'd want to be raised in. Where, somehow materialism has taken over. What happened to the people who wanted more than just leading safe lives? Doesn't anyone here pay attention to the bigger picture anymore?
