Unless of course you want us to think that way of your fellow citizens because frankly I do not know what you want to achieve by your constant complaining in this forum.

Gosh, office politics is everywhere. All Filipinos are not saints, just as all Singaporeans are not all that good either. But one thing I am sure of, I can put a bet that if you do an objective and scientific poll in Singapore, that there are many times the number of Filipinos being underpaid and abused by their Singaporean employers compared to this one incident published in Singapore regarding unfair treatment by a Filipino manager. We are not even sure how true this story is. It surely has a lot of bias in it already. I also cannot believe anyone will trust such person to access their ATM account? If there is anything I can take from this article, it shows the KIASU attitude prevalent in Singapore.
So biased.
When you read stories about Singaporeans bullying Filipinos, you believe it without question, but when you read stories about Filipinos bullying Singaporeans, you say it's probably not true.
The only biased viewpoint here is yours

I can't say whether those stories about pinoys are true...maybe some are two-faced, people everywhere. Whether it's typical of Filipinos as a group? Well I would hope not.

This is different . Our sovereign is being challenged. Already not an issue of xenophobia already . And It is no longer the point that this is one 1 or 2 isolated cases.

If I were to "brainwash" my kid that we will take over Australia, Hong Kong or say phillipines one day, dare you say I won't be bashed or receive ape**** from a sibgle of the million of fillipinos in the world ?

Comparing to a company setting , say you are an employee and your fellow colleague starts claiming that he will take over the company one day.. Won't you be pissed off ? If you are the boss will you do nothing at all dismissing it as just 0.01% of your staff and there will be no effect at all and your credibility as a
Owner ?

Well of course that person should be fired, but how representative is that of Filipinos?

Your sovereignty is challenged? These are kids and this is ONE incident that you did not personally experience. In such cases, the reason they've been told by their parents (although I do not agree to it) is because they are bullied and oppressed. That is just a coping mechanism, providing some kind of hope in some kind of fantasy that somehow, when they grow up, they will become more privileged than those who oppressed them. I am willing to bet that this child is actually bullied for being Filipino by his Singaporean classmates. Such reaction is almost universal anyway, not just from Filipinos. It's this Cinderella kind of story that a lot of kids that age can use to somehow give them some hope and manage to survive through the bullying in school. Whether that will actually happen in the future is highly unlikely anyway. How many nerds being bullied actually are told that they will eventually be one day a CEO of their own companies and those bullies will be working for him? How many poor kids bullied by the rich kids actually hope that one day, they'll be richer than those who bullied them?

So no, your sovereignty is far from being challenged. You might as well worry more if Malaysia will cut off your water supply.
