The Singaporean National Identity is constantly disputed. For starters, we are a hetereogeneous society - which means we come from all the different places. I'm sure you should know that SG began as a migrant country.

The cultures then compared to the cultures now have a big difference. The CIMO (Chinese, Indian, Malay, Others) model we have now is socially constructed.

Do you know that in the past the people who made up the 'Chinese' came from all walks of life? I mean like Hainanese, Sichuan etcetc and Malays - Bawanese/Boyanese, Peranakan, Javanese, Minangkabau etc. What cultures and ethnicity we have now is 'watered down'. That's why we have a problem trying to come up with the answer for what it means to be Singaporean.

Do you mean ethnicity as National Identity? Then every race has its own idea of identity. Race? But it's so imposed upon us. Does being a Chinese in Singapore mean more than being a Singaporean and you happen to be Chinese?

That we're the Asian country that speaks English? What about those who have low literacy levels, are the not Singaporean? Maybe those who hold a SG passport? But then with a more liberal citizenship policy, any ah mong from Canada or Hee chee from Africa can be Singaporean right? SIA? Then no airport we not sgeans? ESPLANADE?!! Then before it, there's no concept of being a Singaporean? Singlish? The government tries its best to play down that fact, with the idea that Singlish is a joke to other countries.

FOOD! That's because we have different races and different cultures. These food come from their respective homeland countries.

AH!! KIASUISM! This attitude is cultivated because of meritocracy. If we aren't so obsessed with getting good grades would we have this sort of rush rush rush for good things attitude?
