Honestly with high Anti foreigner sentiment here in sg, would be wise for any foreign community in sg to lie low, the Pinoy community didn't ..

Not necessarily friends but just associates, they don't mind with that because their purpose there is to work and help improve their lives and their families nothing else. So they just usually stay at home or hang-out with fellow Filipinos.

What is up with people all over the world believing migrants are there to take over? We are a migratory species! People move around to better themselves. when things get desperate they dont care about borders and governments. they only care to put money on the table.

My goodness. Give me a break. Singaporeans willingly hire thousands of Filipinos and others as domestics at rock bottom wages and almost no time off and then are outraged when they want to spend a few hours celebrating one of their national holidays on one of their rare days off.

Perhaps if you are so concerned about the inflow of foreigners you could stop hiring these maids as a status symbol and do some of your own housework. How much time does it take to clean and dust one of those tiny HDB flats?

I see parents with one child who can't even go to a food court in the local mall without bringing their maids along to carry and feed their kid. One person I know is so lazy that the maid has to turn the tv on and off and change channels.

Pretty much what I said earlier on...well since most couples work long hours full time, and maids are cheap, is it any wonder?

Those people that do not hire foreign domestic helpers resent them, the bosses of the helpers are more tolerant. These foreigners in Singapore are on a work visa only, they should learn that they are not the citizens of the country and they are not in the process to become citizens. Citizens should always have priority in their own country.
