Singapore Port

Do you tel you “pile of relatives” that you think of them as stupid uneducated “cannon fodder” that cannot think for themselves?

PS> I can think of another use of the word, but will not use that in polite conversation.

What the H*ll is OnG?? Is that some derogatory thing that you and your Expat buddies use when sitting at the Marina and Club telling each other how stupid the locals are?
The highly intellectual conversation around the table probably match that in an Aussie Pub?

Maybe you and your Expat buddies should all get out of “OnG” before you get contaminated.
Singapore will survive. (May even be better for it) The “Coffeeshop Talk” is getting more and more against Ang Mohs that live in the Colonial past, think they are Gods gift to “stupid locals” and above the Law.

Involved?? What do you mean, “Involved”?

OnG
Oil and Gas, crikey I cant believe you have not heard that before.

O&G yes.
I worked in O&G, I did not stay there.

No I don’t know that. I didn’t stop thinking for myself, nor being afraid to speak my mind while living there.

BTW; Who are thinking for you. your buddies?
