CHANGI AIRPORT SHOULD NOT HIRE FOREIGNERS AS TAXI ASSIGNERS

Before anyone accuses me of being xenophobic, let me say that I have lots of foreign friends, including pinoys. It's just that all these years, I never had encountered something like this. It was different in the past years. Every year, the cab assigners in Changi Airport were Singaporeans. I don't know why the cab assigners are foreigners this time round. They shouldn't allow foreigners to work in this kind of job where you need local knowledge of what kind of cabs we have here.

PINOY CUSTOMER SERVICE STAFF ARE THE WORST IN SG

I cannot remember how many times I encountered unhelpful, rude and unhappy pinoy service staffs in Singapore restaurants! I have enough and will certainly avoid if there are Pinoy service staff again! Not all are bad, but most that I have met are rude in their service and replies to customers. Today just another case of this Pinoy bo-chup service attitude! I was at Thomson Plaza Subway at 6pm in the evening. The Pinoy service staff just do not how to smile but gave lousy unhappy look and banged their promotion table sign to tell us what their only available bread was!

DON’T DISCIMINATE FILIPINOS, WE ARE MALAYS TOO

My mom is a Filipino Catholic and my dad is a Malay Muslim. None of my parents convert, and so I was brought up going to church several times a year. Never been to a mosque because my dad has never cultivate any Islamic values in me or in our family. At this age, I still don’t know what is my religion, and I like it that way. But this topic is not about my religion. Being brought up speaking both Malay and Tagalog, and having experience both cultures, I do have a valid testimony to this confusion. Today I want to share my story about being a Filipino-Malay.

Pinoys helped Build Singapore Into An Economic Powerhouse

It kills me that Filipino workers are being treated with so much disrespect – even though for decades they have helped Singapore become the economic powerhouse that it is today. Reportedly, even the nationalists who fought for independence and helped build the Singapore we know today were influenced by the national hero of the Philippines – Dr. Jose Rizal.

MANILA STANDARD: SINGAPOREANS ARE RACISTS, HAUGHTY, RUDE & EGOTISTICAL

Like the locals of Hong Kong, Singaporeans have a great deal of contempt for the Filipinos working in their territory. Their disdain for Filipinos is confirmed in the recent propaganda circulating in the so-called Lion City on how to maltreat Filipinos in everyday situations there. One would think that the nationals of a country with all those blessings would behave like civilized persons. That is not the case with Singaporeans. It appears that their wealth and financial strength are the very reasons for their racist attitude.

MY ENCOUNTER WITH A PINOY THIEF AT AMSTERDAM AIRPORT

When the pouch was found in her bag, the Pinoy lady denied putting it into her bag and said in her heavily Filipino accented English that someone had planted the old lady’s pouch in her bag. As passengers were boarding the plane then, the elderly woman decided not to press charges as she did not want to miss the flight. The Pinoy lady was allowed to board the plane.

THIS IS HOW I WAS BULLIED BY PINOY FTs IN MY WORKPLACE

I overheard this when I entered a meeting through the rear door. I was attacked by more than one pinoy but whether it was coordinated or not, I’m not sure. The badmouthing caused a lot of my non-pinoy colleagues to have a bad impression of me and some even turned hostile towards me. This caused a huge morale drop in me and I must add that I don’t enjoy working much in the company with such bullying tactics taking place. Every day is like a torture for me.

A Singaporean’s bad experience renting room to Filipinos

Although we wanted to rent out on a “as it is” condition as my MIL do not want the hacking and noise of installing aircon, we pitied the Filipino ladies who need the place urgently, so we went ahead and had the aircon installed urgently at our cost TRUSTING that we can recover the cost of aircon installation over the term of the 2 year tenancy contract. Three months into the tenancy, these ladies tell my MIL they are moving because they found a cheaper room, one that they claimed is cheaper by $200. They asked my MIL to reduce the rent by $200 or they move!
