I was getting on with my day, busy as usual, when a sudden thought dropped by:
I love the ‘live-for-the-moment’ spirit of the French people.
I love the German’s penchant for precision.
I love the Japanese’ consideration for communities.
I love the wits and humour (esp. deprecating ones) of the British people.
I love the joy Filipinos always seem to own.
I love the passion of the Italians.
I love the confidence of the Americans.
Singaporeans…What would you say?
Strangely. I had a hard time coming up with a positive word. The things that came to me first were ‘kiasuism’, tissue paper packet, food, then [another] food again, catastrophe-free, etc. But I couldn’t come up with a positive adjective to describe Singaporeans. I finally settled on this.
I love the efficiency of Singaporeans.
How about you? We really should celebrate. Throw me some positive adjectives!
Happy 46th Birthday, Singapore.
