Singapore indeed has a long way to go before it can really become a gracious society, at term which has been plaguing the nation since PM Lee talked about it last month.


Apart from the smorgasbord of other reasons which I am sure, everybody can throw up offhand as to how Singaporeans are generally not gracious (inclusive of the usual refusal to give up seats on the MRT, the hogging of seats at crowded hawker centres even after finishing their food… …) here’s what I feel is the main one:

Some people leave traces of their shit in public toilet bowls after they have completed their big business.
THAT’s such mindless far-from-gracious 3rd world behaviour, don’t you think?
