    • i hate the fact that some Singaporeans embrace being kiasu.
      Goddamnit.
      I hate how people here crowd at the mrt entrance and people end up pushing each other to get out.
      That applies to buses also.
      Especially those who cut queue just to tap their ez link.

    • 1) Selfish (think abt ownself only, other-ppl-die-their-problem mentality)

      2) Hypocritical (selfish, not considerate, dont spare a thought for others and basically do not contribute to making the world a better place and YET love to complain and complain and complain and complain and complain and complain and complain about how things around s*u*c*k*s so much)

      3) Dont have a mind of their own (Ikea Tampines just opened only, all rush there, not because its different from the one at Queenstown, but because ITS NEW, never go means lose out to other poeple.)

      4) Free of charge thingy? Q up to get. Doesnt matter how long the q is or if they are giving out free toilet paper, as long as its free, QUEUE.
