Singapore's inflation rate hit 2 percent in October this year, up from 1.6 percent in September. Projected inflation for 2013 is between 2.5 – 3 percent. The increase was attributed to a rise in private road transport cost, which itself is driven by the increase in premiums for Certificates of Entitlement that are needed to own a car here.
As an Ah Lian is often perceived to come from a working-class and financially less well-to-do background, she may be associated with having a tough origin. In other words, the Ah Lian can be contrasted against the sheltered middle-class girl, who was perhaps born with an almost silver spoon in her mouth. An opposite of the sheltered girl, the Ah Lian can be perceived to be resilient and independent. A financially less well-to-do family will logically face a greater necessity to have the children enter the workforce early so as to support the family financially. Thus, the Ah Lian often has to work at a young age; she started working in Secondary school, perhaps as a waitress, and continued working part-time throughout her schooling days.

I am a local born Chinese male 43 years old. I do not wish to dwell on the sobering past as I really need to provide for my family and kid now.

I’d like to begin by clarifying a few things from my earlier post Stop Humanizing the Banglas/ Indian FTs!. First of all, perhaps I was too harsh to use the term Humanizing. I was going more for ‘Singaporeanizing’. (Though I’m not sure how many readers would get what that meant). I do not expect readers to agree with everything I said, but my objective was to get readers to (at some level) separate Singaporeans from these foreign workers so that they will better accept the content of this article- which will propose solutions which ‘treat them differently’ from Singaporeans.
Our Norwegian chairman landed in Shanghai ahead of schedule because of a change in flight plans. We telephoned the Sheraton for the hotel limousine to be dispatched earlier than requested. While explaining our request at the airport information counter, several taxi drivers waiting for fares offered their services. They could not understand why we would want to wait for a more expensive ride, and voiced their questions aloud in their characteristic high mainland Chinese volume.
Is ‘Little Philippines’ Orchard Road-lucky Plaza area where many Filipino workers congregate weekly on week end the next riot-risk hotspot in Singapore? The same thing was said about Little India with many concerns & red flags previously raised by Singaporeans where many Indian workers and Bangladeshi workers weekly congregate was continuously dismissed by Singapore Government, Ministers and Singapore Police. They claim the congregations and weekly activities were manageable and closely monitored by our law enforcement officers and not at risk or would have turned violent as some have suggested.
