A friend of mine staying in the west told me that many of his Singaporean neighbors have moved out in the past few years and his family is one of 3 Singaporean families left on his level of the HDB block. That is what is happening in some parts of Singapore where Singaporeans have become the minority in their own country. We have been told not to be small minded and welcome foreigners with open arms. Most Singaporeans have nothing against the hardworking individuals who come here to better their lives and many of us would do the same if we are in their shoes. We do, however, take issue with the govt opening the floodgates to bring in so many people putting a strain on our transport, housing and healthcare services. We also do not want to end up as strangers in the place where we live surrounded by transient foreign workers who come and go every few months.
