Since when does it mean that? Are you saying that Singapore has not been influenced by the west at all?
Just for an example, from what I have heard all laws are written in English, and English is the second language for a majority of the people living there. Does that not show heavy western influence?
Since apparently 200 years of colonialism isn't enough? You did not get out until what, 1959? After being founded by the British?
I had posted to say that this thread is pointless without someone from China. Is that not valid?
And you, of course, are being totally rational about all this, and not childlike at all?
I can't understand you.
Alright, what in hell is a knowlet?
According to you? The unbiased source?
Is that so? And what makes you think I am wrong?
Since I am never sarcastic for sarcasm's sake.
Selfrefreflextion? I don't whant to have whatever the hell that is.
To be fair that is an interesting view from Singapore about China, but isn't this thread pointless without the Chinese view on something?

Deep. I don't think you actually know what Singaporean culture is like to make a judgement on it. We do use English laws, and use English for official purposes, but our cultural roots are Chinese, Indian, Malay, etc. We speak Singlish, we pray in Buddhist/Hindu/Muslim temples, the Chinese follow Confucianism, our cuisine is most definitely not majorly Western. In so many aspects, is our culture not Greco Roman.
Yes, but the British never settled in Singapore as the Spanish and Portuguese did in South America. There were Englishmen of course, but these remain, and have always been near 1% of the total population, and hence, not as significant an impact as you thought. Our British founder for example, split Singapore into a few sectors, based on race, and these sectors developed their own cultures, or clung on to them, hence our culture today is still largely based on such Oriental roots.
Not really, since I do hear PRC views often.
