Back in the deep south

In case some of you didn't know I'm currently in Singapore sorting out my visa while Ollie is holding the fort at dhm.

Everything is pretty much the same since the last time I was back in February. Except that we have the world's first Boeing A380, the Singapore River front looks like a war zone as cranes and excavators work through the night to build 2 super casino/resort in down town, my entire neighbourhood going through a similar 'demolition' phase to beautify and enhance the surroundings and everyone here is excited about the F1 race here next November.

Here's another news that's making headlines:



Read the comments and you can get a sense of the general feelings of Singaporeans about this incident. I personally find the clip funny initially but as it wore on it looked increasingly outrageous as the 3 Brits clearly had the intent to take the mickey out of the poor trishaw rider from the start.

I met a Scottish guy yesterday and he asked me if the reaction would be the same if it's a bunch of locals that did it instead of 3 Brits. Probably not because you don't go to someone's country and take the piss out of our their countrymen, especially one that is clearly poor, old and illiterate. It's respect.

I think most of us were upset by the fact that one of them had the cheek to post the clip on Youtube to further ridicule the old man. For all it's brilliance, Youtube has also become a platform to showcase ridicule and flaunt violence as though it's some sort of trophy.

---

PS for the record:

1. One of the guys post up the clip on youtube and then took it down due to unprecedented abuses and complaints. This clip is hosted by another Singaporean.

2. The three of them left without paying a single cent.

3. Ten dollars is roughly 3 quid.

После вселенской катастрофы Америка превратилась в мертвую пустыню. По бескрайним дорогам, кишащим бандами, воюющими между собой за воду и еду, путешествует мудрый Илай. Однажды он попадает в мрачные земли, где когда-то была цветущая Калифорния, а теперь это сущий ад, где бесчинствует тиран Карнеги.
