In his blog, he bragged that he collected two scholarships from the government during his VJC days but chose to study university and worked in United Kingdom instead. Subsequently, he gave up his Singapore citizenship and became a British citizen. Apparently this move enabled him to find jobs in EU nations more easily. But beyond that, he stated that he wanted to make a statement to the government that he is disgusted with the way Singapore is governed and that more highly educated Singaporeans like him would leave the country, resulting in brain drain.
I was not impressed when I read his articles. In fact, I cannot believe his stupidity and naivety. If he thought that Singapore government is going to react just because of his actions, then he is plain wrong. Who cares if egomaniac idiots like him leave the country? If he thought his actions were vindicated, then let me make it known to him that he had let down Singaporeans, instead of the government. His scholarships were paid by taxpayers and could have been awarded to locals who deserved better. In fact, if given a choice, I would rather the government gave the scholarship to foreigners than to ungrateful person like him. This fellow has no integrity at all. After getting his Singapore scholarships, he ran off to UK without even staying in Singapore and contributed nothing to our country. What a waste of tax payers money. To add insult to injury, he still dare to constantly criticize our system in his blog and bragged to online citizens how great his life is now.
To be honest, I wonder how his parents brought him up. This fellow has no moral integrity at all. Obviously his parents did not teach him the value of giving back to society. My father always told me that if I benefitted from the system, I must give it back to the society. One way or another. I am absolutely disgusted with local bondbreakers like him. People like him not only waste our limited resources, but also bite the hands that fed him. How did our society produce such junks like him? Yeah, he could do this to Singapore, I believe, one day, he could also do this to UK. Hope his UK citizenship get revoked one day and let him be an alien.
I am disappointed that there are many online citizens supporting his blog and encouraging his actions. What sort of values are we promoting? True, our government and systems have inherent flaws. But if you had benefitted from the system, and left without contributing to nation-building, then you are in no position to criticize. We are Asians, not Westerners, and there are certain values and code of honours that we should abide. Fundamentally, this fellow has failed as a person. I don’t welcome him if he comes back to Singapore.
If I am his father, I would have disowned this ungrateful beast long time ago.
