Reading from today’s Straits Times main, an article in the kaleidoscope. A particular interesting quote made by Mr Md Islam (a foreign worker from bangladesh working here) saying. “In my country, people read or travel for pleasure. Here, it seems, we all work for pleasure.” Personally I think its bad. & I guess you don’t need Steven Hawking or so to notice this eminent trend in our society. Had our ever changing lifestyles & high standards of living eating into what we define pleasure? Pausing for a moment to think, are we a bunch of lowlifes here in Singapore? Or is work the norm we don’t notice it? Being second nature to us? I mean I ever came across friends in school who would rather mug homework instead of chilling out with the rest of the gang, with the exams months away! I guess its quite obvious too, being victims of society working parents, high demands, (& the list goes on).
Mmm, instead of sculling over such “spilled-milk” are this one the few traits that we could define “uniquely Singaporean?”
