A local netizen wrote about his experience standing up to an ignorant Ang Moh, who told him off for riding his bike on a footpath pavement. The ang moh had claimed that bikers are not allowed on the pavements.
Luckily, the netizen was aware of the new legal amendments which would allow bicycles on footpaths and pavements. He countered the Ang Moh and shouted at him,
“DON’T COME TO SINGAPORE AND TELL A SINGAPOREAN WHAT CAN OR CANNOT BE DONE” !!!
He shouted so loudly in the middle of Raffles Place, everyone around him looked at him. However, what the netizen did not expect was that a handful of Singaporeans clapped their hands loudly and applauded.
Slightly taken aback by their applause, the netizen made a quick get away as he did not want to be the cause of “public nuisance” or an “unlawful assembly”
He wrote of his experience: “It is clear and apparent that there is unhappiness and bitter feelings Singaporeans have over foreigners coming here and talking down on us. Moreover Singapore laws favours foreigners over our very own citizen, sons and daughters.|
