Now THIS you cannot blame it on FT.

I've been living in this country for the last 5 years.

Yes, I'm what they called FT, "Foreign Talent", a foreigner living and working in Singapore. Just like millions of people in the human history who move from one location to another, I was born in one place and now live in another.

Nothing very interesting or exceptional, right? Wrong! From a Uniquely Fucking Singaporean perspective, I am less of a human being than them locals.

The FT is supposed to come here and, get this, 'DO THE JOB THAT WE DON'T WANT TO DO." This means work such as cleaning the toilet, or digging the road or worse, get your ass fucked by some really ugly gay ah neh Singaporean for $50.00!!!!

It's like, "we are special, all these things are beneath us."

But "we got fucking Singapore Dollars, it's real big deal." "All you fucking FTs coming here to work are less than human and must get down on your fucking knees and pray to our money."

What they do not fucking tell you is that FT provide a service which brings the business cost down and as a result keep INFLATION DOWN.  That allows them to have their fucking disposable income to roam the shopping complex and stuff their fucking face with low quality sushi every weekend.

But no, every fucking thing and every fucking problem they have, they blame it on FT like me. Eh, I fucking pay my GST just like you do, ok?

In that light, I was glad to see the piece of news below. For non-Singaporean readers of this blog, taxis can ONLY be operated by Singaporean citizens.

Taxi fare is going up!!!!! I like to see how you morons are going to blame THIS on FTs.

And I laugh my ass off when I read one of the locals complaining:

"How does this restructuring address the problem of lazy cab drivers camping in corners like behind ORQ waiting for people to call for a cab, and then appearing out of nowhere to collect the extra fees? As many an expat has said before while waiting for a taxi in the queue: Singaporean cabbies are really spoiled! And many refuse to pick up passengers even though it's not shift change hour; this happens even at taxi stands in the CBD area with long queues. They're just waiting for someone to pick up the phone to dial for a cab because there's extra money! As if reducing booking fees by 20 cents will make a difference."


ComfortDelGro revises taxi fare structure from Monday
SINGAPORE - ComfortDelGro, the largest taxi operator here, said today it would revise its taxi fare structure from 6am, next Monday.

Flag down fares will also go up by 20 cents across its ComfortDelGro's fleet of 15,600 cabs here, while distance fares will be increased by 2 cents. Advance booking fees will also be increased by $8 to encourage more drivers to accept such bookings. The S$3 city area surcharge, which is currently in effect between 5pm and midnight from Monday to Saturday, will be extended to included Sundays and Public Holidays as well.

Peak period surcharge, meanwhile, will be reduced from the current 35 per cent to 25 per cent of the metered fare. It will, however, be extended to Sundays and Public Holidays.

Booking fees will also come down from the current S$3.50 during peak periods and S$2.50 at all other times, to S$3.30 during peak periods and S$2.30 at all other times.

The last taxi fare revision exercise was conducted in December 2007, and ComfortDelgro says it is revising its taxi fare structure "to better match supply with the ever-growing demand for taxi services in Singapore". ComfortDelGro operates some 15,600 taxis of the 26,700 taxis on the roads here.
