Why do people buy houses near MRT for the convenience but after buying that cry father cry mother about the noise from the train and the station! MRT station announcement too loud, train pulling in too loud, people talking on the train platform too loud! http://sgforums.com/forums/2080/topics/406637
Why do people buy homes near to facilities and then complain about the crowd and the noise? Just like a neighbour at my old place. He had bought an unit on the ground floor near to the children playground and swimming pool so that his children can be near them. And guess what, he then started complaining about the noise from the other children playing there!
Why do people buy houses near nature reserve and then got all flustered about forest creatures invading their homes. http://www.straitstimes.com/breaking-news/singapore/story/ava-moves-control-monkey-problem-bukit-timah-20130429. Now I am very sure that the very thing that prompted them to buy a house there was to be close to nature. And nature will come with,very naturally the snakes, monkeys and insects. So why do these residents now kbkb over the monkeys?
Ok maybe they bought the house from the showflat and never got to see the surrounding areas. In that case they must be freaking blind and goondu!
So what brought on this ranting? There this joker who wrote to the papers to complain about being chased by dogs while he was cycling at Bukit Brown. http://www.straitstimes.com/breaking-news/singapore/story/cyclist-chased-pack-dogs-bukit-brown-20130602 Bukit Brown is not exactly a sanitized park. Hell, it is not even a park. It is just wild overgrown grasses and plants and I am very sure beside the “silent” inhabitants, there are living inhabitants like snakes, wild dogs, maybe even a wild boar or two. So when you go riding in the heart of all these and kena chased by dogs, why blame them? Blame yourself for intruding into their territory.
Next thing we know, somebody going to the Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve will be complaining about the crocodiles and other wild animals there and demanding that they be put away for the “safety” of the public! http://news.asiaone.com/News/Latest%2BNews/Singapore/Story/A1Story20130603-427143.html.
