Disenchanted. That's how i felt after reading about the whole IMF/WB protest hullabaloo. In case you aren't following the whole fiasco, do read the following articles by BBC:
Singapore welcome raises doubts
Singapore 'breaks protest deal'
Singapore branded 'authoritarian'
I love Singapore, I really do. However I am disenchanted with the draconian measures taken to restrict media and political freedom. On one hand, I value freedom but yet I fear that too much of it will trascend into the farce that we are witnessing in Taiwan today.
Unlike some of my friends, who have the opportunities to venture beyond our shores for extended periods, I am hoping to take the first step out to experience the sights and sounds offered by the foreign lands. This entry by ci'en really struck a chord in my heart. I want to be away and tough it out in another country, but the bind of family ties is reining me back. Idealogy versus filial peity, never an easy choice to make.
Perhaps it is only after being away from your homeland for a prolong period, then you will start to appreciate the way things are back home. Perhaps it is only then, I might appreciate what is going on right now.
