Singapore girl laughs at NSF who died during training: Singaporeans too weak? LOL

Posted by temasektimes on April 18, 2012

A Singapore girl Zheng Huiting (pic left) sparked a massive outcry in cyberspace with an insensitive comment posted on the Facebook of a friend who shared a link on the unfortunate death of a full-time National Serviceman (NSF) yesterday.

21 years old Private (PTE) Lee Rui Feng Dominique Sarron from the 3rd Battalion of the Singapore Infantry Regiment (SIR) collapsed and died during training in Lim Chu Kang yesterday.

A statement from the Defence Ministry said he lost consciousness soon after at 12.33pm.

Mindef said an SAF medic attended to him immediately.

Private Lee was sent to Sungei Gedong Medical Centre at 12.46pm and then to the National University Hospital (NUH) at 1.03pm.

An SAF doctor continued to resuscitate him in the ambulance en route to the hospital.

He was pronounced dead at 2.05pm at NUH.

This is the third reported death involving SAF personnel this year. The earlier two involved an NS man in January, and a full-time NS man in March.

In response to a link to a Straits Times article posted on the Facebook of a friend, Huiting wrote:

“Singaporeans too weak? LOL”

(LOL: Laugh Out Loud)

Her comments infuriated many NSFs, one of whom started a thread on Hardwarezone forum calling her to be ‘burn in hell’. (read more here)

According to information posted on her Facebook, Zheng Huiting graduated from Ngee Ann Polytechnic in 2007 after which she pursued her studies at the Queensland University of Technology. She last worked at Voyage de la Vie at Resorts World Sentosa for about a year.

It is not known if she is currently living in Singapore or Brisbane, Australia. Her boyfriend Kelvin Ong is currently serving his NS as a combat engineer.

All Singapore men have to served two years of National Service followed by more than 10 years of reservist to protect the nation. Women, on the other hand, are exempted from NS and enter university and the workforce earlier than men.

Below is the photo of Lee Rui Feng. He would have a bright future ahead of him if he was not enlisted into NS to serve the likes of Zheng Huiting:

Rest in Peace, our dear brother:

    make girls serve NS 1st and she will be the 1st to die..we guys give our 2 years to the nation and given them 2 years headstart for degree/work..

    • joey said

      yes but men also get paid more in the workforce, so the whole ‘headstart’ thing is made up for.

      • Nik said

        How much more? $200? $300? You naive fool. You think a mere few hundreds of dollars more each month is enough to make up for the 2 years spent? We lose so much more in terms of opportunity cost and in this case of PTE Lee Rui Feng, his precious life.

      • everostentatious said

        how exactly does entering the workforce later, at an entry level, garner more pay than someone who’s already been working for 2 – 3 years? notwithstanding the fact that all employers now only want to hire people “with experience”. please don’t kid yourself.

      • everostentatious said

        how exactly does entering the workforce 2 years later, at the entry level, garner more pay than someone who’s already chalked up 2 years or more of experience?

      • Brian said

        Being paid more in the workforce doesn’t just make up for 2 years of time. Compared to opportunity cost- time lost, chances missed, the amount that men are paid more pales in comparison. But this is not the point.

        Having made a ridicule of Singaporean men who do a mandatory two years, and women who answered to the call of the nation, she has failed to understand the true sacrifice that the servicemen and women have made since the start of The Enlistment Act. Disrespectful, immature as she is, she has also failed to empathize that the servicemen’s parents’ have lost a son, his siblings’ a brother and his friends’ a confidante.

        For the rest of Singaporeans for whom I hope to be able to speak for, our hearts go out to Lee Rui Feng, who unfortunately passed away while fulfilling his duty to the nation. May he forever, rest in peace.

        who says so? which industry do u work in. are u a m.o.r.o.n.

        no joey, thats not true. Get your facts straight

      • kenny said

        everyone are paid based on their abilities, if not u think private co will pay more to men because of NS ?

      • Joey (i’ll assume you’re a girl), I’ll gladly give up the “extra” pay to not serve any NS or Reservist liabilities. 2 years NS, 13-15 years reservist, plus need to train for IPPT or RT or IPT every year. You think it’s worth the small extra pay we get? Not to mention all those alert ember. Who do you think loses work hours when the green flashing man goes onto your tv screen?

        That said. I won’t go so far as to say all girls are like this. I’m sure she (Huiting) is the exception and not the norm.

      • Anonymous said

        oh sure, 2 years more experience is worthless.

      • Joel said

        That is provided you work in the govt sector. Private sectors don’t give a S***.
        Also, NS doesn’t count as work experience. Girls will have 2 years more work experience. Which is ALOT considering plenty of jobs out there want at least 2 years worth of work experience. In that 2 years, you could get a pay rise that exceeds our starting pay, together with your work experience.
        That little ‘headstart’ doesn’t count for nuts.

        I’m not saying that we should not serve, just that it is we don’t like seeing our female counterparts getting ahead of us.

      • Mike said

        It’s only made up for if you’re working in the public service, which employs “some 127,000” out of a labour force of 3.1 million. If you’re working in the private sector (which I doubt) you’ll come to realise the only thing that matters is what value you bring to the company (unlike staff working in stat boards and ministries). They don’t give two shits about whether you were the best at whatever it was you did during national service.

        In summary, the whole ‘headstart’ thing is definitely not made up for.

      • mike said

        are you kidding or are you really that ignorant? the only men who get a higher starting pay are those working in government jobs. don’t expect to get a higher pay just because you served ns if you are looking for a job in the private sector.
        and even if i do get higher pay it merely puts me at the same salary range as girls my age. it does not make up for the income I could have potentially earned.
        that being said, i just wanted to point out where you are wrong. it doesn’t mean i agree that girls should start serving ns.

      • ketsuko said

        The “extra” pay is only in Singapore. Not elsewhere.
        And even so, woman earn much more in the same time span as compared to men.

      • tommy yeo said

        It fuckkng depends on which kind of industry you work for. In the eyecare/optical industry where I work in, there is no higher pay for males! Quit giving bullshit when you’re not aware of certain things!

      • Mark said

        That’s not true… OK use Grad scale pay… Girl Entry SGD$1,800. x 30 months headstart sans bonus = SGD$54,000
        Guys come in later get paid SGD$2,100… so what? Girl has 2 years experience, worked hard, promoted leow… u think the promoted pay is SGD$2,100? or more? The time, experience and money cannot be compensated unless man does a lot better over time, and can accelerate promotion… Free market and open competition yes… first 3 years, lose for sure.

        Got lots of government sponsored foreigner scholars (No NS) go in same time as the female 18 year olds, also out in the workforce…

        And now got FT coming in willing to do same job for SGD$1,500

        good thing our market still expanding and have more vaccancies than fresh graduates at this time (not choiciest, but still got vaccancies – you choose, you lose…

        die leow…

      • shawn said

        because we clearly demonstrate a higher level of maturity

      • JJ said

        sorry the paid more is bs~~~ its peanuts… some sg women are so pampered and notorious for being materialistic, guys in sg are more and more looking for overseas women and partners…( notice I said some, not all, so if you are one of them, reply :P) cos they gotten their degree n everything already far ahead of guys… well this is life in SG.

      • Alan Ho said

        EXTRA PAY only in government sector, you’re lucky if the private sector hires you despite of your reservist needs.

        We lose out to local females, to foreigners who has NS liabilities. Since govt is pro-foreigners and talent, why not pay them to do the 2 years + the pathetic allowance 😀

      • S said

        Excuse me, the so called headstart pay only applies to certain MNC and public sector. Let me know when you find a SME that provides this headstart pay.

      • jenki said

        not sure where you get that idea from. you really think we get any more than girls? every job i’ve applied to doesnt give a shit whether you served NS or not.

        the only reason why we even get more salary when we apply for govt sector job, is because that 2 years is considered “working” and the extra we get is considered “annual increment”.

        and the increment is given as long as u serve NS, whether or not you are male or female. you want that extra few hundred bucks, go volunteer for NS.

      • jon said

        Joey you’re really a fool. The higher pay only applies to the public sector and some other industries. Even so, its only a token sum (a few hundred, i’m not sure of the exact amount) which does not come close to a true compensation of the years of sacrifice we go through.

        Not to mention the fact that the reservist obligation is viewed negatively in the eyes of foreign managers (“precious” foreign who probably never went through NS, or any form of military service for that matter). To them, hiring a Singaporean male with reservist obligations is less favourable as compared to females, or the “precious” foreign talents with no reservist obligations. To them, reservist only leads to disruptions and inconveniences for the company work flow. That’s what you get when you have foreign managers who cannot understand why Singaporean men have reservist in the first place – to protect people in Singapore (including them)

        RIP Rui Feng. Hope you’re in a better place.

      • lame said

        If you guys complain so much about serving NS just because of future pay issue, then leave Singapore. You guys are not even grateful of the fact that your ancestors died and suffered for this very land that we are living in right now.

      • beaconofknowledgebiatch said

        I am a guy and was at first pissed that girls get those extra two years. But then again, while we men keep moving up the ladder (hopefully) till retirement, chicks plateau once they have kids.

        Of course there are the crazed chicks who don’t have kids. And then those who start their own business. But guys can do that too.

        True story.

      • just a thought said

        Lol joey u just got slammed for thinking it’s still fair between Singaporean guys and ladies. Even if ladies has the biological obligation of pregnancy, it falls down to a matter of choice in whether to get married or get pregnant (unless you got shotgunned without protection). NS for guys, never a choice unless we go to the extreme of getting Pes status or emigrate to somewhere else.

      • Joeymyass said

        HEY BITCH, I will take the head start and lower salary, while you can go offer yourself for fucking NS and other SAF reservist shit!

      • anonymous said

        i agree with him,despite losing 2 years of work exp,we used that time for OUR country.think abt it,w/o NS,singapore will be weak and open to be attacked,that’s why is previous ‘cher(female) said that when another ‘cher(male) joined the education at the same time,he was paid more by a few hundreds than her,so this is the evidence that the govt tried to make NS more appealing(she dont do propaganda fyi.maybe the higher pay only in govt workforce).to summarize:never go NS
        2 years work exp,
        (that’s all??!!)
        got go NS:
        higher pay,
        received a badge after 10(or more,i cant rmb) years upon NS guaduation(learnt from recently opened NS museum),
        giving our country protection and safety for others,
        for me,i am willing to go NS ‘cos i want to serve my country,a 1st world country with great safety compare to others,give us education,affordable meals and world-class healthcare.i am proud of my country and the country is proud of me and the 4.7 mil s’poreans.
        remember,there are no free lunch in this world.(referring abt the things s’pore gave us which cant be found from most of the other countries)

      • Get-ur-bloody-facts-right said

        ur so-called headstart applies for all who serve NS, not male that serve NS.

        What’s so great about it? If u think that it is really so great, go sign up for it, wth r u waiting for?

      • Leon said

        What paid more?its up to your own ability & experience,dumb nitwit! Try serving the army or at least a nurse in the hosiptal for free,the bank that I used to work for paid men & women the same!

      • Leon said

        Stop blaming NS to substitute your stupidity and incapability of getting a higher pay,I reckon your boss base your pay on what’s in your head(& in this case I can see there’s none),hence you presume men’s pay after NS is higher than women’s.loads of bullcrap I’m sorry! Get your freaking facts right before trying to standup for ya fellow biatches!

        Chill guys. The majority consensus is that: we dedicate 2years of our lives to the nation. If we have ungrateful souls, or foolish immature people who retort that we are reinbursed someway or another, then let them continue their foolish thinking. For those who have served, we all know, good or bad, we have done something for the nation, at our youth, will do something for our nation, when we start work, and will continue to serve our nation otherwise. Those little imbeciles are less worthy than us to the nation, in terms of contribution.

Lets look at things and talk about it objectively can?

        Not denying any guy’s contribution to the nation, but childbearing and pregnancy is not easy fit either. Opp cost of leave, career opportunities. No doubt there are monetary benefits, but it’s not equivalent. Just saying haha.

      • Hello said

        Joey, just hide urself in a cave..

      • Jayeen said

        there is a reason why girls do not have to serve the army.
        Firstly, the obvious reason of most males being physically stronger than females. thats something that we can’t help it. we are made this way.
        Secondly, imagine the whole batch of 18 year olds both females and males being call upon for army for 2 years. that’ll be a whole chunk of potential young adults being pulled out of the workforce and that imagine how much it would cost for our economy!
        Working, other than just earning income for yourself, we are in fact contributing to the growth of our economy.

        So, guys or girls. either way, as Singaporeans, we are all contributing to our home; just in different ways. Perhaps it may be tougher for our guys in physical terms, it doesn’t make any gender more worthy or worthless than the other.

      • farid said

        i had serve ns with the army 1st SIR. so kelvin brought up about women serving ns. think about it, from experience even men had to endure the physical demands of bmt at start. the outfield and route marches for example. i have seen even the fittest of my section mate struggle completing the outfield and route marches. i mean the load we carry and distance we cover, for us men is a struggle already. imagine our girlfriends doing it. i can’t imagine it. what about you? let us men be the better half and not let 1 insensitive comment from a girl spark an online rage.

        i just want to share with all singaporeans that we are fortunate to live in a peaceful country in singapore. i just think we singaporeans take that freedom for granted at times. freedom comes with responsibility. our government surely think so. if not then they wouldn’t have care to make it mandatory for all singaporean men to be enlisted when they turn 18. that sense of responsibility has seen our government spend billions of dollars on machinery and equipment to safeguard our country. so when i say freedom comes with responsibility: huiting, if you are reading this, everyone is free to express themselves. like for example, commenting online. but be responsible when you do it. i hope the public can end this rage as she is still young and will learn from this experience.

        if there is to be a war in our time, then we men will defend our country to care for our family. let our women do their part to care for our children.

      • LL said

        Oh come on, some of you guys speak as if you don’t draw pay during NS. And please, it’s never about the money or opportunity cost alright? I believe there are guys who are exempted from NS, plus all your female friends who graduate 2 years earlier. Do you really see them having multiple promotions in just 2 years? Perhaps there are, but one in few hundreds? It’s all about performance at work guys. All the skills from those training and the network you gained during your 2 years in NS are very precious. You might not know these skills and the network of friends could be your crucial stepping stones to success, or they might just save your own life.

      • Clara said

        Hey guys, calm down.
        I get it, I get that it is unfair that you have to do NS and females like me can skip it.
        Then again, it is unfair that I was born a girl. The list goes on on what you guys can do and what girls can’t do.
        Trust me, the lists exists. If you don’t know, you probably are not a girl.
        You want to whine about 2 years of pain? How about limitations for life?
        If you don’t know and you are a girl, you are just dumb/stupid.

    • Moh said

      And all we Singaporeans know best is to complain. Cmon guys, let us ALL change. 2 years experience? 2 years NS? In the end, if we work hard (and stop complaining) for ourselves, seize every opportunity that comes, I’m pretty sure that sooner or later, we’ll get where we want to be. No need for comparisons, because in the end, if you’re content with your own life, then who gives a shit about who earn more?

      • Ryan said

        I agree with moh that working hard and being contented is key to being happy. What good does it bring from all the non value added complaints. Yes, huiting comment can be immature and frustrating to see,.but the same can be said to the complaints made by people about serving the nation.

      • FUCKSAF said

        No honey, Singapore guys are unhappy that they need to waste time serving what fucking NS while all these ungrateful cunts and fucking foreigners are getting all the jobs!

      It is not us girls that determine how much you guys should get paid please…


      As a girl i think that Singapore girl Zheng Huiting is simply too insensitive and talk w/o her brain. What is Singaporeans too weak? Life and Death is just one thin line apart, perhaps she have yet to lost anyone close to her.

      • Alan Chan said

        not picking up a fight, just stating the facts.

        I’m sorry but thats not a good comparison:-

        1) not all men in the world need to serve NS, but all women in the world bleed month (ask your creator why women need to bleed, we are not responsible for that)

        2) while all able men need to server NS, not all women would give birth (look at our low birth rate)

      • John said

        Well said, Renee! I fully agree

      • ian said

        girls bleed every month and have to go through birth process , this is decided by god. not by our govt.

        what IS under their control though…well. read everyone else’s comments.

      • QUEENIE said

        Alan, no one is asking you to compare with other country. you are a singaporean, so suck it up. if you dun wan to do NS and feel its unfair, then leave singapore. (dont tell me if i feel unfair, nxt time i dont give birth. )

        Not all women will give birth? There are guys who chao geng in army also right. =.- when you try to debate, do better.

        Having said these, i never once feel being NSF is easy, and i do appreciate. #Justsaying

      • Christopher said

        Renee- Its kinda stupid to bring bleeding and everything in here. Its what god gave you…well god didn’t say we must serve ns…get my point!!

      • QYU said

        Alan Chan, my gawd. ure in idiot.

        cant believe this. instead of feeling sorry for PTE Lee, his family and loved ones, people here are debating about the unfairness of girls not having to serve NS.


      • maroonpiggy said

        then go and ask the government why men have to serve ns? If singaporeans do not want a safe country to live in, goverment can just wash their hand and let all the people do what they like.

      • May said

        If you guys are so unhappy about it, then downgrade yourself to PES E.

        Purpose of serving NS is to ensure that one day if Singapore is being attacked, everyone (wife, children, gf and family) can rely on you guys to protect the country… so stop whining please!

      • Jin said

        Kinda funny how some girls love to bring bleeding into the topic. Well, studies have found that your monthly bleeding is the reason why women in general has more years to live compared to men. So I think it’s like serving NS for girls in a way where u bleed every month for 25 years and live about 10 years longer than men. The difference is that the rewards are much better for monthly bleeding compared to mandatory National Service. So hopefully that puts the bleeding issue to rest.

        When you bring up the issue regarding women giving birth, it’s a choice whether you want to do it or not. Since you are not forced into giving birth, I think it’s a different topic altogether when it comes to mandatory National Service. Speaking about cases where NS men “chao geng”, I think it’s the equivalent of women going for alternative birth methods like cesarean. However, the issue is still not solved – mandatory NS.

        I’m sorry to say this but I think the way you frame your words are as insensitive as Zheng Huiting. Guys will still serve the nation for the next 100 years to come but “sucking it up” isn’t the right mindset that a nation should have. I think simply speaking, all men would be happy to feel appreciated by girls like you. You don’t know how important that is.

        Hopefully after reading my post, people will stop bringing up irreverent issues like monthly bleeding and birth giving versus mandatory NS.

      • Darren said

        Oh Renee, how do you explain the falling birth rates if women in Singapore wants to give birth.

        to Queenie,

        1. Leaving Singapore just because you do not want to serve NS? What about your parents and loved ones. Leaving Singapore is the only option if your parents are rich.

        2. Even if we chao geng, we clearly have no choice of skipping army and doing something that we like.

        When you try to debate next time, do better. Please back up with stats of the number of guys perceived to chao keng in army.

      • Peter said

        Not sure why this girl is bringing up a pointless issue into a topic like this.
        NS is mandatory. Giving birth is a choice.

        My condolences to this young man and his family,
        his life and future lost to military training. Rest in peace.

        i knew it, some girls just like to bring bleeding into the picture.

      • WhatAMoron said

        Renee, why so shallow? How could you compare something of a biological aspect to NS? NS(Conscription) on the other hand is by the government.

      • Renee Tan said

        Alan: I am also not trying to pick a fight here, I am also pissed with this zheng huiteng’s comment but all i see here is Men trying to use NS and complain about income and say how unfair it is. Not all women can give birth? Do u know how much is it to raise a kid? Why is it that we have one of the lowest birth rates? It is not we don’t want to give birth is because we simple can’t afford it please.

        I cannot blame anyone for our painful menstruation cycle and I cannot blame that only girls give birth because this is how we are made.. thats why NOTHING IS FAIR. Yes, some countries NS is not compulsory, if you are so unhappy you can always 1)Down Pes 2)Get the fuck out of this country because we did not make it compulsory the govt did.

        Christopher: Merely trying to say there is no point to sulk about losing 2 years freedom and blame girls for the difference of income. Bringing in menstruation and birth cycle issue I am trying to say that nothing is fair so don’t compare.

        Jin: Merely trying to say there is no point to sulk about losing 2 years freedom and blame girls for the difference of income. Bringing in menstruation and birth cycle issue I am trying to say that nothing is fair so don’t compare.

        Darren: Nobody can choose the place of birth, every person has their own responsibilities and obligations. Would you rather to be born in other countries like Iraq/South Africa then?

        The main point is now about the NSF that passed away and a Singaporean girl made an insensitive remarks but you guys are diverting the topic.

        Whatever it is.. Thank you guys for doing your part in protecting the country and I know it can be quite torturous to endure 2 years of inflexible regime of NS and RIP Lee Rui Feng…

      • Oh please said

        Oh Renee you lovely troll, feminist as hell and also ignorant as dirt, bringing up biological processes that affect each and every female in the whole who has gone through puberty in the world as a stand. God knows you are the one taking the common “giving birth” excuse to seemly validate your debate though you may be unmarried and such.

        Seriously are you trolling or simply a nincompoop. Has education (if you ever got any) wrecked your brain beyond the ability to think straight?

        Are you being a keyboard warrior right here, commenting and rooting your stand on the tragic news of someone’s death?

        I will be the one saying “Your son too weak? LOL” if/when your son eventually appears in a similar article to this if you even have a son, or when this happens to any of your beloved kins.

        And to QUEENIE, who do you think you are? A goddess? or perhaps a proud representative of the female population, to demand a citizen who has served or is serving NS to leave the country? Should I direct this right in your face as well?

        “Queenie, no one is asking you to make insensitive comments about something you don’t even have to do. you are a woman, so shut it up. if you think men complain too much despite continuing NS and feel its unfair even though you can sit back and start work, then leave singapore.

        Finally to QYU, take a very very good look. Yes, consult a professional if your command in English doesn’t allow you to understand fully what Alan has mentioned.

        1) “not all men in the world need to serve NS…”
        2) “while all able men need to server NS, not all women would give birth (look at our low birth rate)”

        Now look again and try to understand that none of his words here has mentioned about “debating about the unfairness of girls not having to serve NS.” DO NOT SIMPLY make a statement and attempt to infuriate the rest with your assumable aim of feeling accomplished.

        If you do feel that “Zheng Huiting” is not insensitive, you have just made yourself as insensitive or worse off than Zheng Huiting herself. Feel proud about it.

        Earnestly, do females casting rage comments and absolutely senseless comments here to feel secure? Or perhaps feel accomplished that she successfully bashed the male population? Should you have such an attitutude, save the absurd mandatory pain to even give birth. You’re not fit to be a mother NOT because of the NS issue but your pestiferous attitude.

        I hope this wall of text has delivered some sense. Yes, I hope you even read this.

        guys, the bleeding thing renee brought up was just an example. the point here is, NOTHING IS FAIR. so please stop whining! we really appreciate your efforts in keeping us safe, but please stop whining

      • SEE TOW said

        stupid bitch may even if you downgrade to pes e still must serve two years. your brains grow in your backside is it? stupid bitch

      • cannotstanddumbpeople said

        Lol, tell you all something, the fact that there is gender equality already upsets the equality and balances in Singapore at least. The reason why there’s low birthrate is pretty darn obvious. Not just rising costs, but the resentment to stay committed and wanting to have “freedom”. Seriously, rising cost is not really an issue if u are willing to give up on some luxury u yourself own. I am not just saying girls, but guys as well, be willing to give up something for the child.

        Still, NS is a waste of 2 years for most of us with no appreciation from the society. Unless u sign on, u will never know what is NS and u girls are thinking, “hey, why are u guys whining?” Come on, where’s the sensitivity that girls are suppose to have?
        Just step out of the house, at your neighbourhood and go ask the girls, how many are willing to give birth? Seriously, you all have no rights to comment bout NS while not being in it, go sign on man., bleeding and NS…are totally unlinked. If u want to talk about bleeding, u girls won’t die like how we will die in NS, so, please don’t link your bleeding here, it’s disrespectful for the deceased. And girls nowadays has serious problems, they don’t know when to shut their mouths. Just look at the NYP racist girl, look at adelyn hosebo, so many examples out there.

        And the reason why there’s a divert of topic is because of the stupid comments below and above, most probably by girls. What about “more pay”, what “bleeding”. Please la, the topic now is about insensitivity, and maybe coming up with analysis and solutions on how to stop behaviour from individuals like “Zheng Hui Ting” will be more apt and objective.

        Lastly, there are always good girls, but only a small handful of them, certainly some who posted here aren’t the good ones. If I have a choice, I would rather get girls from other country than in Singapore. Too many “Princess” syndrome out there, and too many bimbos like Zheng Hui Ting.

        My Condolences to the deceased.

        whatamoron: exactly then why u all so shallow wanna compare income and whine. We did not set all this damn rules, everyone is born in different body different family background. Some born in rich family fed with silver spoon and some have to study hard to get scholarship but as long as you work hard enough you will be rewarded with what you deserve.

        Guys may have a lost in a headstart but that does not mean you will lose out to girls. You work hard enough you will get what you deserve.

        What fucking stupid argument is that???? If you are born in a country without NS as a girl, YOUR VAGINA DON’T BLEED??????

        I’m amazed by the stupidity of SOME Singapore girls, you can go plug yourself with a carrot to stop the bleed, you stupid cunt!

      • Alexis said

        @Renee Are u f*cking stupid or what? If giving birth is so tough, don’t give birth! It is as simple as that. Why are u comparing giving birth & your monthly cycle to the cause of serving and protecting the country? You seem to take it for granted that males sacrificing 2 years of their youth and subsequent time in reservist as a given. It’s not!

        You are a part of the nation and by right, you should do your part and sacrifice for the country but you’re not. And giving birth is NOT a sacrifice for the nation. If you go to 7-11 to buy a cup noodle, do you consider yourself sacrificing for the nation because you contribute to the economy of Singapore? No! Your statement of comparison between giving birth and national service is simply ludicrous and hopelessly flawed. And you talked about “responsibilities and obligations” like you have a clue when you have done absolutely nothing for the greater good of this country. I’m not even going to venture into the debate of whether females should be doing national service.

        @Queenie “#justsaying”. Firstly, this isn’t twitter. Secondly, next time you make a statement, please ‘do better’. I failed to see a coherent link between ‘chao keng’ in army and ‘not all girls will give birth’. I failed to understand the point you’re trying to get across. Is there a relevance between malingering and refusing to take public transport? Is there a relevance between malingering and refusal to eat fast food? And you say you ‘do appreciate it’ but the very statement of your comparison of national service to an individual’s refusal to have a child seems to imply otherwise. Perhaps you have failed to grasp the meaning of selfless sacrifice.

        Your words “suck it up” implies that anyone who has grievance or discontent or feel that he/she has been rightfully wronged should just put up with it and simply blame it on the fact that he/she is born a singaporean and by that it constitutes that he/she has no rights to voice out his/her discontent. Because after all, you’re not the person who has to “suck it up” and therefore your lack of empathy for he/she is apparent, leading you to say such insensitive words. Who are you to tell someone to put up with their misery and not do anything about it? Who are you to judge an individual for the issues he/she is struggling to deal with? A lack of respect and understanding pretty much sums up your comments. And you claimed that you “do appreciate”. That is laughable because your callous words make you no different from “Huiting”.

      • Ivan said

        Your entire argument is out of context Renee. From what I’ve been reading so far, they are merely commenting that the 2 years is such a pain, and to be even mocked by females who do not even need to enter NS at all is such a joke. Comparing giving birth/bleeding to NS is the worst analogy ever. U have to read and understand the crux of people’s statement and not take 1 line and make it the pinpoint of the entire argument. Your mindset is entirely flawed. If you want to whine about guys should just suck it up, why dont you girls go try serving the 2 years instead? It doesnt mean that we dont suck it up and serve, it means that people like you should not even comment about us serving NS. WE ARE ALREADY SUCKING IT UP AND SERVING. If you like to compare, at least compare something that is on the same level as your “giving birth”. Ask God for a penis, that’s something of the same level as your argument. Dont take something that is determined by our government and compare it to you giving birth. It makes entirely no sense at all. I am not saying that we should not serve the 2 years, I’m just saying that your comparison is the dumbest thing i’ve heard, no offence:)

      • Ivan said

        BTW, it starts off with kelvin saying that we already take off 2 years while women have a 2 years headstart and this is what we get from them. I assume your friend Joey( cos you 2 seems to argue on the same boat ) said something about we have an increased pay as a result of the late start anyway. That is when everyone is raging at what she said. You coming in and linking it to giving birth really just show how LOL some girls can really argue.

      • Liting said

        Pointless to explain to a bunch of raging guys.

        Whatever that Huiteng said does not represent Singapore females at all. No wonder they say females are more mature than males.

        You guys cannot even accept female opinions here and is still at the topic of unfairness… what is the point of whining? Too bad lah it is not compulsory for females to go NS and even if we do go for NS I probably think we still earn more than you guys.

        Singaporean men are not weak.. they are just a bunch of sexist whiners that cannot see both side of the coin.

      • Alexis said

        @Liting I guess you’re just delusional to conclude that females are more mature than males. So much for your “maturity”

      • Ivan said

        @Liting What the hell are you even talking about? What are you explaining about? Do you know how this argument started in the first place? Do you know what the people here are arguing about? What female opinions do you want us to accept? That there is a relation between serving NS and giving birth? Have you read the comments before trying to reply? Kindly dont reply and scroll up and start reading so that you know what you’re talking about. Dont disgrace yourself here by reading a few comments then jumping to your own conclusion.

      • Dref Slawe said

        My condolences to the deceased NSF soldier. I feel sorrow, for the passing of a fellow Singaporean and a potentially good friend should he have survived the training.

        However, I feel that it’s unfair for this girl to take all the flak, even from the female population of Singapore. There are two main factors.
        1) One needs to have experienced NS to truly understand the pain and suffering that our brothers have to go through.
        2) She posted her comment on a social networking site. (Remember Sun Xu?)

        I think that raising these two points alone should be enough and that I need not say more. I would love to discuss this in detail but I am too stupid to do so.

        This thread is less of a discussion and more of a random group of people shouting angry words at one another.

        I agree that things are unfair. Each and everyone of us suffer or benefit a bit more or less from the laws of nature and the laws of human civilization. Hence, we tend to rationalize these sufferings and benefits. Now what I see here is you guys throwing all these rationalizations out at one another, hoping the person at the other end will understand.

        They won’t. Nobody will. There’s no point sorting out every advantage and disadvantage a particular gender group gains.

        There’s one other thing. I notice the female participants of this non-conversation prefer to use the word “whining”. Personally, as a male, I find that very accusing and kind of irritating, which leads me to believe that the main cause of dissent here is that people tend to feel hurt over some words. Maybe, just maybe, she did not mean it that way?

        I can’t stress enough how elated I am that most of you here speak about staying in topic and such. The topic is important! However, it is way too important to be used as a tool for invalidating your opponent’s comments.

        I’d rather we sit down and nicely discuss whether NS needs to exist at all =) I know, I know, that amounts to nothing. But hey, it sure beats shouting to one another over the internet!

        I have left a lot of gaping holes in my so-called “argument”. See if you can find them, and attack me if you want to! Hahahaha~ I think they are very easy to find though. That’s why I’m so insecure. Because I’m such a stupid asshole.

      • bebe koi said

        I think Singaporean women should have their voting rights taken away from them because they are not contributing to the country. They do not give birth to enough children, allowing our gov to use the stupid excuse to allow the foreigners into the country. They are also very ugly and immature, but expect so much from Singaporean men.

      • Roger said

        I’m sorry, but I’d like to clarify something here. South Africa as a COUNTRY (Yes, it is a country) is not backward and suffering from harsh famine. It hosted the 2010 world cup remember?

      • Nich said

        Huiting is retarded to post the facebook comment, Kelvin Tay is stoopid to make a comparison of 2 year headstart for degree/work and Renee is dumb to bring up birth and period. Nuff said.

    • Lydia said

      Alan, by saying “we are not responsible for that”, are you trying to imply that girls are responsible for you guys needing to serve NS?

      Don’t turn this into a guys vs girls thing. Her opinion does not necessarily represent the opinion of other SG girls. Many of us also have brothers, boyfriends, fiancees etc serving NS. So guys, don’t take your self-righteous anger out on girls who comment here. I have a brother who has already completed NS, and one who is going in in a couple of years’ time, my boyfriend signed on (even his mother and brother), so I definitely understand and appreciate what the men are doing. Nobody wants anybody to die. If any of you curse Huiting that her boyfriend dies, it makes you no different from her. Of course she is being insensitive, hurtful, brainless, passing stupid, unwarranted comments and what she said is totally not justifiable, and nobody IS trying to justify it. What she said makes me sick too, because I know it could easily have been one of my loved ones.

      Just make sure your anger is not misdirected. It’s not fair to us girls when you guys insult girls as a whole just because of what Huiting said.

      Note: This applies only to people who are guilty of such, if not, don’t get your undies in a twist.

        The message was not solely directed towards Alan. Did you not read the disclaimer?
        “This applies only to people who are guilty of such”

        Besides, the aim of her message was to bring across her point of view after reading the entire chain of sexist comments. Further, Lydia was already using kind words and her reasoning aptly to avoid offending people, much unlike you with your uncalled-for vulgarities. Distasteful.

    • Theodore said

      Dear Joey, I am appalled by that statement. There is no such situation in the world we live in. Pay is determined by performance and to suggest that there sould be such discrimination within our society is to be insulting the culture of fairness and system of meritocracy our country prides itself for. Your statement has just placed u second to Miss Zhang.

      So please fellow citizens replying to the post do not acknowledge and try to reason with such a view for it is anything but valid.

    • Chan chai said

      Let me show you the following facts:
      1) Guys are complaining that girls are gaining 2 years of working experience/school head start.
      2) Serving the NS will make the boys turn into man, and it is to protect the country in time of war.
      3) There is a need for health care personal (aka nurses) in Singapore.
      4) Men are looking oversea (eg. Vietnam) for potential partner, as the girls oversea are more caring than the local girls.

      If you piece together the above facts, you might come to a simple view point as me. Girls should have 2 years of service as a nurse in health care sectors. For the following reasons:

      1) There will be no more 2 years head start for anyone, and that’s what the people want, fairness among the sexes.
      2) In times of war, the girls are able to nurse the wounded soldiers. Which is a huge contribution too. Also, this would make the girls show more care for the people around them, making them more mature.
      3) The problem of health care personal shortage will be reduced if girls are required to nurse for 2 years. There’s a chance that the girls will like what they are doing and continue on to nurse for their career.
      4) Since the girls are being taught(forced) to serve as a nurse for 2 years, they will be more caring toward people and hence attracting the Singaporean male counter part.
      5) Imagine a city where all the girls know how to provide first aid to any person requiring assistant. This will leads to lesser deaths that can be avoided, if proper first aid is provided in time.

      Girls shouldn’t be complaining much about needing to ‘serve’ for 2 years. That’s what that happened to the guys isn’t it?

      i survived NS and completed NS. I don’t think any of my friends or relatives would say such a callous remark that NSF are weak and die easily during training.
      precautions are taken by both instructors and trainees to be safe. there are sportsmen who also collapsed during their run and training, all seems to be healthy and robust. who can say, when a person going to die suddenly.
      my remark is for her to step in the shoes of the deceased’s family bereaved feelings, rather than just shoot her mouth off. perhaps what you think i am cursing her, but KARMA doesn’t happen much in this world anymore…. otherwise all would wary of its retributions….

        Just telling you guys that I seen and heard alot of these comments by girls even at my time just that, that time no FB ma.
        And NS had caused how many relationships to break, girls go to working world 1st, getting good pay, knowing more mature guys with good pay and leave the current NS serving sg man? tons of these stories every year.
        Now new boys wondering what they are protecting? FTs? And current trends showing more sg girls go for foreigners as partners. We sg mens just have to suck it up.

    Whoever wrote this article, and whoever is reading this article: please don’t turn this into a girls VS guys shit storm. This is just one idiotic girl. It doesn’t mean that the majority of Singapore girls also think the same way. And the irrelevant line about “entering the workforce earlier”: While you’re at it, why not also mention the fact that despite this two-year “headstart”, Singapore women earn peanuts compared to men over the long run?

    • Mark said

      really? majority? maybe… you wanna compare to say… ex CEO of SMRT? Current CEO of Temasek Holdings??

    • JJ said

      sorry~ ur rationale of women earn peanuts in the long run~ nah, not true. Unless u talking about specific sectors where men are chosen to lead and direct. Women now earn alot, they are more educated and capable as well. And it is the headstart of women that makes some women look down upon sg men…dont u feel that many guys in sg nowadays have the same sentiment, if not there wouldnt be so much rage and wt not?

      I have nth against girls or anything, esp sg girls…but studying psychology and realizing the patterns will make one realize this continued decision is affecting certain coupling and marriage issues in sg, which also lead to the issue of govt always wanting more population etc…but hard to, as girls expectation are raised off the roof and possibly will only marry into the late late age. ( Not a statement, but personal thoughts)

    • CY said

      Well said! I fully agree with you! Mark and JJ, are you guys even married or even have a gf? You won’t understand the pain a girl has to go through every month, and also during giving birth.

      Actually when Huiting said that she just shot herself in the foot. She is a Singaporean herself and didn’t she just said Singaporeans weak? That is why we must be careful with whatever we post online.

    Please don’t start a sexist war. This post is not about which sex is stronger, but about this girl’s lack of maturity and tact. I would love to see how she would feel if it was her brother/cousin/boyfriend. I knew Dom and he was a great guy, who was really fit. This girl is so insensitive to other people’s suffering

  25. amanda lee said

    don’t stereotype us girls, do you think us girls are proud of her also? have the graciousness to accept that this one female is merely immature and probably has not seen a close friend pass away. well, at least now more people know about this incident and we should all direct our attention to the government so that they may look out more for our NSmen.

  26. Chill out, boys, not all Singaporean girls are like this dumbass.

    Let’s not respond to ugliness with ugliness. Out of the millions of people on this good earth there will be a couple of idiots. I’m sure women respect and admire, some even envy us men with the opportunity to wear green. Don’t respond to such an ugly comment with uglier comments.

    My condolences to the family.

    @Alex Wong a childish generalisation like this consigns you to her level. good job.

  30. Chai said

    I believe that it is too harsh for people to insist that all singaporean females think this way. Clearly this is an example of a Singaporean girl that made a quick judgement on facebook – hoping to attract some attention from her friends to shrug off this matter as a laughable one. It is definitely incorrect for this girl to say such things, and I personally wish that there would be sufferable legal concequences of hers but this isn’t possible. This clearly goes to show that our government system, or education system – whichever you would prefer to call it, has brought up Singaporeans to think that death is a laughable and unworthy cause. Neither does this reflect well on commentors that like to use rough language such as Alew Wong with the comment above mine “Fuck Singaporean Chinese Females.” All this does is bring out a racist comment. Please think wisely before you comment, social media is not just a tool to share your own personal point of view, it will incarcerate you if given a chance. Don’t make yourself look so foolish.

    • yes said

      yes. please think long and hard so you can be considerate and understanding to someone who doesn’t bother to think long and hard. VERY WELL DONE.

      • Chai said

        Sorry but your incorrect use of the English language has made it difficult to understand the point you have attempted to make.
        If you are trying to insist that you want to play ‘tit for tat’ merely because you don’t see a reason to take the high road – it only paints you in an extremely low light, showing that you are pretty much the same as the girl who said that Singaporean males are weak. If you are unable to take an objective stand on this matter – it only proves that you are a Singaporean incapable of thinking things thoroughly before making comments.

    Guys let’s not get carried away here and say that ALL Singaporean women are like her. Granted it only takes one bitch to sully a good name. But don’t take it out on all Singaporeans girls. “Don’t know what they are good for also, most cant even cook! Check their handbags all sure messy one…”? What the flying fuck is that? This is exactly the kind of comment that started this whole thing in the first place. Don’t make girls think ALL Singaporean men are like you. Ok having said all that… I hope this bitch kena one time jialat jialat. Like sibei jialat.

  33. mireillie said

    i agree that the girl was extremely out of line for saying that. but men saying, all women should be punished etc etc, are just dickheads. good luck getting married & all that jazz. 🙂 and don’t forget, if a woman is a bitch, you’re just a son of a bitch.

    actually thats my first thought when i read the article. im not supporting her just because shes my cousin, but really thats the first thought that came in my mind. im a guy yet to serve NS and if you think about it, its true that the guy who died had a weak heart or something so his heart failed or lungs or whichever part, right? im sure it was just an insensitive joke la.

    • RC said

      So should i joke about it when u die in the army?

      Insensitive joke? don’t think its something to joke about and its pretty dumb for her to post on facebook…

      Ask her not to hide also… dare to comment don’t dare to be criticized by others?

      not very funny. many people had already died on heart failure who healthy and fit. medical research has yet to find any evidence for this. if you yet to serve ns, you should just keep quiet.

      Dom collapsed because of his asthma, MINDEF knew about this, so why on earth did they not excuse him from this smoke grenade activity? that was the main reason why he had an asthma attack.

    • theminoritydude said

      Darryl, not everything can be taken as a joke. There is seriously something wrong with you, to defend your cousin, by dismissing it as a mere insensitive joke. Please do not make the matter worse by attempting to diminish the gravity of the situation she got herself into. You and your cousin need some serious soul searching, because right now it seems you both don’t have any.

    Just as many NSF died during our time. The only difference is they were all successfully covered up by the Army. Today, tweets, blogs, Facebook, n other forms of social media reporting makes it hard for deaths to be hushed up n overlooked.

  43. Solomon Tan said

    2 things: Firstly, I do seriously believe that Singaporeans youngsters are pretty weak and fragile in the case of being a soldier. I myself had been in the force for many years. So, I don’t think the girl said anything wrong.. However, I do think the LOL is necessary. It’s not right to laugh at anyone who had served his nation and died for it. I, for one don’t like what she said.

    Secondly: I also know that the training in the force now isn’t that hard anymore. I don’t believe in unreasonably tough training, but progressive training is necessary to strengthen the mind and body of a soldier. The whole NSF is already a mistake by itself. If the soldiers are properly trained, lesser death and injuries will be suffered.

    • Solomon Tan said

      My bad, type wrong. I don’t think the LOL is necessary.

    • 3SIR said

      singaporean youngsters may be pretty weak and fragile compared to soldiers of years past, but this particularly referred to the NSF who died while training. how can that mean “the girl didnt say anything wrong”?! this is just an insensitive remark of the girl and is certainly no laughing matter worthy or an LOL. singapore soldiers may be mentally weaker now, but do not generalise and Dom certainly wasnt weak. secondly, who knew he had a heart condition? he didnt want this to happen, neither did his commanders. it was just an unfortunate episode.

      • Solomon Tan said

        Like I said, it’s the overall training and concepts of NSF. A lot of things they didn’t do or enforce properly.. Like you said, he have a heart condition.. but why isn’t it found out before he was assigned to the Army? Since there are so many fit people died for no reason, isn’t the SAF doing something about it?

        There are a lot of things, a lot of things that’s not right in the force.. and commanders are really not doing much to change that.. I mean the really high up..

        As for the girl, come on, girls don’t go through the NSF, and even if they do, it’s going to be much easier compared to the guys. So, she said some rubbish.. Then?

  44. Carrie said

    the likes of her makes the like of most women who are proud of their men look very bad.
    My hubby is not fit enough for combat due to his white blood cells count being higher than his red blood cells, but I’m still proud of him for going through the process.
    I can honestly say, I am proud of my cousins who are officers in OCS and cousin in law who is also a officer in OCS.

    She should be punished for her insensitive remarks. Such comments should have a punishment much worst than that of racism!
    Our men go through tough training to protect us regardless of whether the threat is near or far. They don’t have to put themselves through it, but they still do because they love their families, they love their country and most importantly, they are fighting to keep their fellow Singaporeans safe and give them a peace of mind wherever they are.

    Without their efforts, where will we stand now?

And hope the uni looks into this case for your utterly selfish antics. You have a headstart to starting your uni life. Ours have to delay 2-3 years then we can continue and further our studies or start work. It’s not fair to have such remarks from you.

Girls, serving the nation especially for combatants is not really an easy thing, why make such a bad comment especially when that guy just pass away? No respect? If war really happen, who are the ones who go fight & protect you?

    For the girl Joey:

    What others say are right! Money really can’t compensate the 2 years of sacrifice we give especially when we might throw our lives one day during our 2 years of service! What about you? You are just sitting at home or working everyday, relaxing! If you want me make it more ugly, SHUT THE FUCK UP if you don’t even know a single shit that is happening out there!

    you know what? you lot sure are strange. no doubt she said the wrong thing and that made her an easy target for alot of your fake anger.
    but what about directing your anger towards the SAF instead? our brothers are dying left right and centre and ITS ALWAYS HAPPENING!
    who’s doing the bigger wrong here? some girl who didnt think properly before she wrote? or the SAF for failing to address their various issues which results in kids dying under their care every year?

    I have never thought of my NS as sacrificed. In fact it is the place I enjoyed myself most and nothing in the world can give me that experience. So what about the 2.5years and low pay, there are things in this world that money can’t buy and that is deep comraderie that last for a lifetime. Ask yourself, helicopters ride, arms handling, fooling around with your friends, chiong that knoll, congratulating each other for overcoming yet another task that seem mpossible, helping one another in difficult and siong moments, brunei, Taiwan R&R… I’m sure 75-80% of us really enjoyed our time there if not we will not be talking about it on weekends after book out.

    In the corporate world, if you do perform, your remuneration can double or triple in a short timr, it’s the attitude that counts, not the number of years. Guys, don’t be so shortsighted. As for this girl, I’ll say it’s insensitive but it’s her rights to speak out, isn’t this what the internet world is about? Speak what you want with no holds barred? Don’t apply double standards and never be on the high pedestal of morality because that will make you a hypocrite.

  61. ethan said

    right now she’s saying she’s sorry,how about i slap you on the face and tell you i am sorry.does the world work with a “sorry”?
    from my point of view,she’s thinks that serving NS is just going in for some training and just booking in and out for 2 years.let me tell you this huiting u ask people not to fool around with your bf.just my thought when you joke about our fellow comrade who pass away serving his nation,putting 2 years worth of his life to protect you and your family if the time ever comes.have you thought about the feelings his friends,fellow NSFs who was there with him and worse his parents who lost a son? frankly if i ever have a gf like you.i will dump you that very instant i see your comment….this goes to show even you 21 years old you wouldn’t make a good gf or even a wife.if you say that u ain’t gonna hide why don’t you apologise in public and stop hiding behind screen and say sorry here which nobody can feel that you are sincere about it? lastly i hope rui fang i hope you enter a better world with no such people who will joke about other people’s death.i hope your nsf friends can complete their 2 years safely

As for this huiting, I believe every human being said things out before and regret after that, everyone makes mistake..she is still young so just give her a break..

Maybe will populated by all the FT. sometimes i’m still thinking if i am in singapore or not.

  73. agrowingtree said

    As a girl in mid twenties, I want to add that I really admire the guys who serve NS. I know how hard it can be. Some might say it’s not hard as compared to the past but hey, those were different batch of people who had different lifestyles. Their lives were harder and of course NS has to be harder too. Lives that we lead now are easier than the past but the NS these guys serve now, is not easy when compared to what they are used to in this era.

    I admire NS guys because even if they are forced to serve the nation, I’m glad they still faced it and went for it and not run away from it. Al the NSF and NS men out there, I am really proud to have you guys in our nation and our security really does depend on you guys and the knowledge and skills you pick up doing what you do. I feel that we can rely on you and you are what build this vulnerable nation stronger. I don’t see you as serving the nation for only 2 years but it’s a lifetime because what you learned in NS about defending and saving lives, is a lifelong skill. I don’t see NS as a duty of being a citizen because you could make the choice of keng-ing but you didn’t, and I’m proud that you didn’t. NS is never useless.

    Although NS makes you feel like you are wasting 2 years of your life when actually you could achieve much more in life, it’s not true because you learn about things that we girls otherwise wouldn’t learn about. Life isn’t just about climbing the corporate ladder as fast as you can. Life is about developing a spirit, determination and perseverance that you guys are familiar with while serving NS. When you come out to work after the 2 years, hey, you have more drive, more responsibility and more determination to serve life than us.

    I’m sorry if I wrote too much but I really want NS guys not to feel that they are wasting their time because I look up so much to them and if they think that they are doing something useless, I wonder why I find them admirable.

    • God said

      Ppl in SG want more $$ since living in SG so damn expensive. Who cares about spirit, determination and perseverance when cannot even support a family ?? NS not just take away 2 years of a guy’s life, but close many doors of opportunities for them.After NS still have reservist, you think MNCs want to employ ppl that randomly will not come work because of reservist ??

      if this is a sincere post, thanks for the appreciation. 🙂
      if this is just so we’d stop flaming for the utter disrespect lil miss huiting has for us, Nice try.

    • agrowingtree said

      I’m sorry if my post sounded like bullshit. It’s my reaction to a lot of guys who say that girls (as a general) do not appreciate what they do and think that NS is just a walk in a park. I am not stopping anyone from flaming Huiting, because I do not agree with what she said either. I just want NSF and NSmen to know that they shouldn’t think so lowly of NS, such as thinking of NS as a waste of time.

      From the guys I meet, I find that those who have completed their NS, are way more mature than before they entered NS. They are more responsible and disciplined and they do not give up when they meet challenges at work, even when compared to a lot of girls. That is why I think that it is because of NS.

      Yes, it’s sad that $$$ is a the driving factor in Singapore. Yes, employers might not care about qualities we have but just how much they have to pay us. But this doesn’t mean that by missing out on career for the 2 whole years, your employers will think differently. Actually, if you can do the same work that a girl with 2 years of experience can but demand a lower salary, don’t you think you will be the one hired as compared to the girl who is asking for a higher salary?

      • God said

        Who want to get lower salary de ?? ^ Exactly my point.
        1. Girl have 2 years more experience on paper. Even if you know how to the the job, who you think the boss will hire ?
        2. Please lah, who want get low salary ? Because of NS then guys should ask for lower salary ?
        3. Would a boss want to hire an employee that randomly pop back to reservist ?

    Why not jus hire foreigner to protect our country than everyone is happy.. The guy is happy cause they no need to serve NS and the girl will have to shut up cause non of the NSF will be singaporean by death rate for singaporean NSF…agree?? Its doesn’t matter anyway since nowsaday singapore is full of foreigner…why not all singaporean guy put on a rebel road show and ask goverment to do there will not be complain from guys that they have to waste 2 years..happy?? Happy right singapore guy

  75. Jess said

    As a fellow female singaporean, I seriously feel that Zheng Huiting is a disgrace. To be able to “LOL” at such a tragedy, I wonder where’s her conscious. If someone dear to you die in NS, how would you feel if a stranger does that to you? There are some things that cannot be taken light at, even if it is just a comment. Even more, these guys serve in NS for a noble purpose.

    However, despite all the commotion with this girl, I am more concern with the fact that this is the 3rd death in SAF. What’s wrong with them? Its a serious problem that NS men are dying under their supervision. Something’s must be wrong in the way they are doing the training. I hope that SAF do more on safety and precaution, rather than putting NS men on tedious training without regards on their lives.

  76. William said

    Haters, cool down. Don’t hate Zheng Huiting for what she did, unless (1) she was related to the cause to his death (direct or indirect) or (2) you are personally related to Dominique, the NS man (I highly doubt most haters/trolls here are). It is quite apparent her intentions was cracking a joke, even though it is incredibly inappropriate, given its insensitive and ignorant content of her joke, in face of the tragic loss of a bright young NS man like Dominique. She also implicitly raised a good question to think about: In face of the number of deaths from NSFs in the recent years, how prepared are our batch of NSmen in going through the current military training available, let alone defend this country. While Huiting deserves this internet backlash from her comment, ou guys are much better people than this thing here: A thread of hate and ignorant comments, no different from the likes of Huiting. Don’t just hate, stop. And think.

  77. Joe said

    It would be nice if comments are directed at her only. Please do not drag family members, friends, partners into this. Do not turn this into a woman vs man issue. Have some respect. Be reasonable. Focus on the comment she made or the case itself not anything else. Please be sensitive to the victim and her family/bf as well. If you can drag her family/bf into this, you are being as insensitive as her. I do not approve of her comment in any way and I am not standing up for her.

    Reasons for all the complaining is simple. Whether we like it or not we have to serve the nation to protect family and friends. The least we can get is appreciation, instead of complaining how smelly we are on the bus, or constantly stomping us, and even go to the extend of mocking.

    I do not blame the woman for being insensitive because after all, out in the jungle when i am facing the mud crawling, sharing a stick of cigg with a section, these insensitive people are at home watching running man, taking peace for granted.

    They will never understand unless they go through the same pain, and they seems to forget laws and regulations about who should serve the nation is created by man, and who knows one day the law might change.

    Dear girl, Zheng Huiting. Now young woman, if you are reading this. You ought to understand that our boys didn’t choose to serve NS and these conscripts, with their life and sacrifice are the underpinning force for National Security. Do you know that this boy has died for us? And we the women folks, the ones who don’t serve are also benefitting from and instead of understanding let alone appreciation, I think your remark is utterly mindless and inconsiderate.

  83. sidewindonthesideline said

    Why digress into why girl should serve NS or going to NS gives more advantages to girls. This has to do with governance. Nothing to do with the girl being insensitive to the poor soul, you guys are just arguing for the sake of arguing without any purpose. Poor guy died, that’s the whole point. Who the hell cares about what the girl has to say, she’s just stupid. Nth to do with getting more pay/periods/giving births/gender equalities. If you’re arguing for the sake of arguing you might as well just shut up and sleep.

    Question why so many NS men have been dying of late.

    Question what the government has been doing to make sure these NS men are physically fit to withstand harsh training.

    The guys here are just being defensive towards their sacrifice towards the nation. Its true, I’ve served NS. If I die tomorrow, that’s about 10 percent of my life dedicated to my nation which would have meant a lot to me. So girls, shut up. You are comparing biological differences. Then I could simply say, guys provide sperms. It starts from the balls. Not the uterus. And the guys weren’t even complaining about NS. Just that they are defensive towards their sacrifices being belittled by you when you don’t understand the difficulties.

    And if you care enough, pray for the poor soul. Or atleast bitch about the girl who made the insensitive comment.

    The bottom line is for govt or armed forces to re evaluate their training procedures and safety measures for our men serving the country.
    This has nothing to do wif FT or whoever is getting a head start in their career. Wats the point having high flying jobs or pay when one dun get to spend it in their lifetime?
    Wats the point of raising kids when they r quick to blame or ridicule ppl in distress.
    A parent always ( majority) hope to Give proper education ( academically, morally etc) but many times, things dun turn out the way we expect.

  87. Lilililili said

    the government really really really needs to investigate these stuff. too many people are dying in NS. And Zheng Huiting needs counselling.

  88. Hi there noobs. said

    People make insensitive comments, fact (Just scroll up or down).

    Woman, be thankful you were let out the kitchen, no need to be a douche bag about it. Being a douche bag does warrant some form of douche baggery done back, not some lame public outcry.

    People die all the time.

    The Singapore Army as a whole has yet to prove itself in a War, fact.

    The Private sector has THAT name for a reason, its run by individuals who without prejudice, serve their own agenda which ultimately results in its shareholders benefiting (although not always). in the private sector, if you’re good, you’re good, it doesn’t matter if you start later.

    There really isnt a need to bicker about starting pay or 2 years “lost” in the economic sense, it is NOT lost, it is wasted, and this is because the people going in don’t want to go in and do not utilize their time fully to gain some valuable life experience and take a freaking study break (you nerds). Instead of calling for women to serve the nation, why dont you call to force them to spend 2 years in the kitchen, pretty sure you will get the same intense negative reaction from some people.

    The probable reason for all this animosity is the success adrenaline of wanting to beat everyone else at being successful. Don’t fool yourselves, success is your own measure.

    • sam said

      why do you assume all singaporean women are like that just because of one comment that a childish girl made? really shows how mature you are by generalizing the whole singaporean female population. congratulations, you just stooped to huiting’s level.

    as a NSman, i have one sentence for da b*tch. Your boyfriend is severing NS and a Combat Engineer? i hope he die at mine field training or another oversea exercise. let you have a taste of someone who lost and is kin to you, even as a NSman (ORDed) i felt pity, but training is tough. too bad william she can just keep it to herself, she doesnt have to express it out front that make her in-famously famous, she said the word “so weak”, why not ask her go for a 3mth boot camp and 1 week field camp see who is weak

    Guys, chill…. I know that we are treated unfairly in this NS system as compared to girls of our same age. Life is never a bed of roses, and equality between sexes can never be achieved. This is something we can never change no matter how much ranting. If really cannot take it, just leave the country. The country doesn’t appreciate her citizens anyway.
    As for Huiting, she is really being immature and insensitive. A life has been lost while serving the country, give the guy some respect. If nothing constructive to say, she should just keep quiet

  95. Agnes said

    For those who criticised joey, i hope you guys are capable and financially abled to let your wives shake their legs at home to be tai tais. Unlike women in the past, modernised women are financially independant and contribute to household income, supporting bank loans etc so unless you’re a rich tycoon and your future wife is feeding off u, who are you to pass such comments about females… And get your facts right, alot of countries have mandatory conscription for men too not only singapore…

    Im sure most of the females will feel sad over the demise of Those who lost their lives while serving the nation, generalisation jus bcos of a comment is so diaoz…

    • God said

      People criticised her because she think guys go NS come out higher pay then girls so should not complain. What you talking about woman ?

    • sidewindonthesideline said

      Well Israel has mandatory conscription for women too. I’m sure they are independent as hell, and have the same biological clock as you do. I don’t see them defending themselves using these biological differences. AND TO START OF, this has nothing to do with WOMEN SERVING NS. so give it a break. and you have to understand where the guys are coming from. its frustrating to hear ‘oh you get paid more, so the 2 years is made up for. its 2 years of our lives. to sacrifice 2 years of yr life is a pretty big deal honestly. hell to 2 years, if the poor soul who passed away had a week to spare before he died, it would have made a hell lot of difference. So stop blaming the guys for being defensive, unless you have volunteered to serve NS, like some woman who choose to serve their country, you have no right to speak ill or justify the 2 years the guys had sacrificed with monetary aspects.

    • Jimmyeatsworld said

      Since i have the financial means to let my future wife work as and when she likes and supporting my beloved grandparents as well, i would like to pass a remark here. I do believe that modern women are more abled compared to the older generations. But being better doesn’t mean one could shoot whatever they like out of their mouths.

      What the men wants is just a little bit of appreciation from the women. U should understand their frustation when a woman post a careless strement it hurts the pride of a man especially when we as men feel proud to serve the nation in order to protect the women in our lives who are not capable of defending themselves in times of war.

    • Herp said

      Stay in the kitchen!

  96. Shaun said

    then again, the reason why we men still have to *upkeep* conscription is just to maintain the peace and order of our country. And in the event of war, at least we would know how to operate arms.

      • Prissy said

        Yeah. But well, the purpose of the public apology is not to save her. (We have to answer for our actions and words. Even if we are sorry afterwards.) It’s the least she should do to acknowledge her mistake.

  99. WhyUsoStupid? said

    I believe huiting is being very stupid to say singaporean are weak and laugh.. At the end of the day all we ns man is here to train to protect each and everyone of us regardless we like u love u or hate u, as long as u are part of singapore , we protect without questioning, its our job, SO when we had a bro who pass away while protecting u, and u simply say he weak and laugh thats so wrg , so terribly stupid and wrg of u. And u only.. Or those who think lyk u

    Calling others weak? Look at herself first. That pitiful body can’t survive the rigours of hardship, it being devoid muscles or brains. Has she gone through military training? No. So she should shut the fuck up. A pot calling the kettle black.

        deepest condolences,i realli feel that the SAF should be more responsible for the NS personal welfare and life.This is my honest and true opinions(i have no intention of hurling insults or belittling the SAF).it’s people lives that is involved,not some minor things that can be overlooked.

  104. Annie said

    Seriously, no one and i mean no one is allowed to comment such things under ANY circumstances. And i hope guys will not stereotype all girls to be like her because we aren’t and we also don’t want to be put on as inconsiderate b!tches. She said she apologise for her actions of writing that post. She say she doesn’t mean it. Come on, if you have wrote that you would have mean it. Don’t try to hide from the fact that you did type it down and at that very moment you meant it. No matter how much you apologise it doesn’t mean anything.

    Are you trying to say if someone dear to you passed away because of NS training and someone says that his weak and laugh, get scolded by millions of people, apologise saying he/she didn’t mean it, you’ll accept their apology? I doubt you will.

    Also, i hope people stop attacking her boyfriend. I think it isn’t right to punish her boyfriend for the mistake she has done. Stop with the cursing of hoping her boyfriend dies and whatever. These remarks will just put you on the same level as she is.

    What she did is unforgivable. No matter how many apology you can say, how many excuses you can come up with, no one is going to treat you like a girl anymore. You insulted the whole nationwide Singaporean NS men. This isn’t a small figure of people. Think they’ll let you go this easily? Think again. Doesn’t mean you are a girl means you can say and do whatever you like.

    • Hi there noobs. said

      I like your style Annie, except by that measure you should go back to the kitchen. “no one and i mean no one is allowed to comment such things under ANY circumstances”? are you some dictator? cos if you are, by that measure, go back to the kitchen cos the men should be able to dictator you back to the kitchen. Since men gave you the entitlement to rights and some men seem to think otherwise now, why not send you back there?

      Using your logic. I SWEEPING STATEMENT YOU.

  106. To all my fellow Singaporean brothers and sisters… We understand the death of our brother during his NS training, thus we pray for him…

    I understand a lot of you… Feel the hate and rage of a stupidity mocking from Ting… even i feel angry at first when i saw the article… but after i calm myself down and i read through her apologize message… i think we should give it a stop… i bet she learn her lesson from the netizen…

    To My response… i feel sorry for her, even ourself… why? we have been stressing her out… but you might not know her story when we flaming her… come to think, what if she suicide? what if her bf broke off with her? what if her friends neglects her forever? you see… we flame her, she suicide… no one will be happy, don’t you feel guilty? or is we Singaporean this weak like she said, we can’t be united?

    a mistake has been done and it can’t be untold… she have repent herself and apologized to all readers… let break the chain of hates and forgive and forget… we are not letting any FT disgrace and fight among ourself…

    ps: i am not asking you guys to agreed what i said, it just a thought after i put in hers shoes and our NSmens and even you guys, the netizen… i am not related to her or the nsmens… peace ^^

    Seeing so many comments about Girls having a headstart in life while us guys have to grind out 2 years of NS. I think its that that we all should agree to disagree. We may bring up points that we feel strongly about, and rightly so, but at the end of the day it was the comment made by Zheng Hui Ting which we are all really annoyed about.

    Aiya. She was just making a joke. We should be angry at the govt for not making it compulsory for women to serve NS. Not her. Scold the govt..

    For people like you(huiting) who don’t have to serve the army should just shut the hell up and hope that the next would not be ur boyfriend. Can you even imagine if the person was ur loved ones? Don’t take us for granted, we serve to provide the country with security and not to let retards like you laughed at. I doubt you will be any stronger than our buddy who left us so suddenly.

  117. neopets24 said

    She(u know who u are) can be be charged by the police for making such a insult if the SAF decides to pursue the matter.u dun believe u can try the system and suffer under the wrath of the SAF.Hmmm maybe SOME girls should be enlisted in SAF and suffer the hard way before learning how to learn to be more mature.And no offence why does ur bf fancy u about?

    If the one that died in the exercise(i am not trying to curse or blame her bf)is ur bf,would u laugh and say he is weak?from ur words u are also a person who is excessively selfish.Can’t u even empathise ppl death?his family?u can ignore if u dun care but dun make such comments becoz if u save those comments to urself no one will assume u are a mute.

    I am a person who is easy going,but even I can’t tolerate by assuming i never see anything.try to think for others in life,maybe that will make u grow up.good luck.

    No disrespect to this guy, it was very unfortunate. But why kick up a fuss over one careless comment? There are ignorant idiots in this world, there’s nothing anyone can do about it. Many people in countries like the US diss their own army force and much much worse than a mere facebook comment, yet they’re not picked on by the military sector. Instead the military ignores these comments and are busy training for combat, fighting wars etc. The question should be are Singaporeans too free?

  124. ORD personnel said

    Whatever she said is not be forgivable, at least in the near future. Is it even appropreiate to ‘LOL’ at someone’s death?

    The main issue, is it time for Medical Officers (MO) to be deployed in exercises/outfield instead of just shaking their legs in the office or guai-laning NSFs who are genuinely sick?

    Seriously, if this type of situation happens again what can a medic do? No offense to medics here but they are just dont have the medical knowledge to handle emergency cases.

    Another question is why did they not send him straight to any of the general hospital??

    I hope the SAF can improve their solutions to such emergency cases.

    One of the reason why Singaporean guys are not motivated to serve NS, while countries like US don’t even need one to have Divisions of full time soldiers.. it’s not about geographical size or population size, it’s the pride, honor and respect one get for being a soldier.. Singaporean guys get none..

    lanjiao la, this isnt a case of “girl should serve ns then talk”. its about the young man who died while serving the nation, dont digress. may he rest in peace and empathy for his family.

    since this has already veered OP so much, then here’s my opinion:

    defence is a necessity, everyone agrees. for the guys who say “not fair/ why must serve?”, ask yourselves this – you feel safer knowing a man with a sar21 is defending our country or would you rather put it in the hands of a zhar bo? ladies, i believe at this point you would be thinking “male chauvinistic pig”. i challenge you to ask yourself the same question. if you feel that i am biased or sexist, please, put your money where your mouth is, sign on and chiong sua with us.

    i’m certain that we’ve established an agreement that what this zheng huiting is in fact appallingly ungrateful. i admit i read already i also hot, but please forgive the men before me who has expressed their dissatisfaction with national policy in the form of sexual inequality, know that it was all out of a moment of anger, in retaliation but not an attack. i apologise on behalf of them that offended you all and agree that it was uncalled for.

    to the guys who tell these men to suck it up, the 2 years might have cost these men a lot of opportunities, not implying that you dont lose due to ns, but PERHAPS (I CAPSLOCK EMPHASISE) more than you. so instead of telling them so “man up”, show some understanding to them too because we’ll never know what each other had been through.

    i dont wish to participate in the debate over the necessity of ns

    reply as you wish, i’d definitely love to hear your thought’s on my perspective and yes, i would reply to your reply.

    Why all the insults at her/her boyfriend/her family/her ancestors/her descendant? It’s obvious that she wasn’t thinking when she typed that (…maybe ‘not-thinking’ was a normal state for her). And I don’t believe the people around her did anything wrong. Insulting her gender is just gonna make you look like her (an insensitive, not-thinking – probably never-thinking) person.

    I’ve always thought that females in SG should serve mandatory NS as well (the females that currently chose to serve NS not withstanding). There are more females born than males after all. But probably in a different capacity that plays to female’s strengths rather than weakness. Biologically, (most of them anyway) are weaker in muscle power so having them in the front line doesn’t really make much sense. Aren’t they said to be better at multi-tasking? Maybe training that are geared more towards medics or something. Also during war time, the enemy doesn’t care whether you have extra dangly bits or not. Bombs and bullets are blind. If both females and males serve NS, then I believe the NS period of time should be cut down to perhaps 1 1/2 years or even 1 year.

  137. Far King Du Lan said

    Sigh. Zheng Huiting fails to realise that the line between life and death in the rigors of NS life is sometimes blurred especially when physical health is something that not everyone can determine with certainty.

    I dare say Rui Feng was probably physically fit, IPPT silver or gold and I’ve seen the vigorous training regimen of 3SIR, its not small feat to be able to endure that each and every day for sometimes weeks on end.

    But things that are unforseen i.e. a viral infection affecting heart function which have nothing to do with his physical toughness might have caused his death.

    That being said, its a complete outrage that someone who has barely contributed to this nation in any fucking way as compared to this NSF is completely disregarding the magnitude of his sacrifice for his country. Not only his, but also that of his family. Its an insult to injury not only for the family, or his loved ones and friends but also to all NSF who are currently serving, or who have already served the nation.

    Also, hope you goddamn women in the country can stop defending her. It doesn’t help that you’re jumping into that ignorance bandwagon. It doesn’t help that you’re showing the same level of nonchalant, cavalier attitude that NS isn’t quite the big fucking deal. When you have never served. Will never serve. And will probably never ever even endure physical discomfort 1/100th of the shit some NSF go through.

    Cheers, please kindly stfu. Show some respect for someone who’s laid down his life for your unkindly, uncaring asses. Even though in my honest opinion, you aren’t that worth it.

    RIP Rui Feng, All NSF will remember you, at the very least, I will.

  138. Andrew.R said

    I personally feel that it has been taken entirely out of context, it was merely a passing remark by her part and the article does not articulate the fact that neither the accused nor her friend are friends or knew the victim personally thus taking out emotional attachment from the equation.

    Given such circumstances, it is hard to expect true sympathy from her, although her comments are in-appropriate but truth be told, it is mild as there aren’t any malicious intent behind her comments.

    On the other-hand, i don’t see such empathy or calls for compassion towards PRCs or FTs in Singapore, on the other-hand we see a trend that sows discord and hatred amongst Singaporeans towards FTs, we see xenophobic comments that curses at FT going as far as calling them dogs, inferior beings, animals, deserving to die and other harsh words and we see Singaporeans supporting those comments.

    This is ludicrous.

    • Jimmyeatsworld said

      The passing remark wouldn’t be nice if the guy that pass away is ur brother, ur son, ur relative or ur best friend.

      • Andrew.R said

        Granted, but are you his brother? sister? parents? relative or best friend? the truth is, practically all of those who are slamming her now are in no way related to the victim, what i see is a bunch of opportunistic vultures pecking on the flesh of a carcass just because it is amusing to do so or rather it is in trend to slam her for her actions regardless of whether one feels strongly against it or otherwise.

        There is no moral justice in what most are doing here or on FB in response to her passing remark as the same bunch of people very well have propagated hate comments towards FTs.

        If everyone were to be punished in this way for having a passing remark, wouldn’t that take away the freedom of speech and expression? since the population themselves are becoming like the watchdogs of an autocratic government.

  139. kas said

    Yes girls should go into army, i think the government should consider this option soon. After all when my friends come out from NS they are always talking about army stuff, kind of feel like I know nuts abt the life in army.

    But guys the 2 years is good for some guys to mature, so don’t take it as a losing out to the girls. some girls need to go for training in order to wake up(huiting for example) plus even though girls have a head start but not all of them use it wisely, a lot can club their 2 years away.

    I hope the guys in Singapore wont go stereotyping all the girls, not all of us are like huiting.

    Lastly, my deepest condolences to the lee Rui Feng and his family.

    I find it very disappointing to hear that people are upset at a girl who was merely joking (albeit with truth to her words). To be fairly honest, Singaporean boys are weak. I’ve lived and studied in many different countries and encountered 18 year old ang moh guys who are way more mature and manly than older singaporean guys who have finished NS. It is very disappointing because NS is supposed to be a system that makes boys become men but in reality, you guys are spoonfed and guided like little sheep every step of the way! In my opinion, Ns is just a waste of time and it’ll be much better if they encouraged singaporean guys to migrate overseas and get some more mature ang moh guys to migrate here instead. All the singaporean girls would rejoice and you pussy faggots can go marry china girls or something.

    Win-Win Situation.

      you’re disappointed that people got angry that someone was making way-insensitive remarks about a death? Her words are true? Most Caucasians are mentally more mature than us? We’re ‘spoonfed and guided like little sheep”? Your words ring with inexperience. What do you know about National Service? You wouldn’t last a day woman. Its actually the ingrates like you that cause those 2 years to be a waste of time. Haha, carry on with that attitude of yours; the most you’ll get is winding up as some Caucasian’s tool.

      grow the fuck up Rachel. Seriously how come no one replied to this? Gonna let this dumb bitch floor us with her ridiculous comment?

    • Insensitive People Talk The Most said

      Just from what you said, i can tell you are a very shallow person with little or no exposure to the real business world in Singapore. Don’t generalize guys with shallow stereotypes about how Singaporean guys aren’t as good as “ang moh” guys outside.

    • Brian said

      HELLO RACHEL 🙂 I find your comment very disturbing, and appalling. I take it that you assess the “strength” of guys, Singaporeans and Ang Moh guys alike, from their size and maturity? While this might sound apt on the surface, it has fundamental errors. Firstly, yes, the NS System serves to make boys to men. But who are we to judge this process? Having served my share of 2 years, I can only speak for myself. And I am sure that each Singaporean who has served the army can as well. To brand all Singaporean servicemen, past and present, as “spoonfed and guided like little sheep” doesn’t sound like a fair statement.

      Next, the Singapore Army is one that has been able to defend its sovereignty. The Army, Air Force and Navy are capable of joint exercises held with the likes of The United States and Australia. And this is only made possible with our very own servicemen, who have either voluntarily, or otherwise, joined the army. Saying that National Service is a “waste of time” is a huge accusation that no one should be able to make because we are all unable to say that Singapore would be where it is now, without it.

      However, I feel that your angst and frustration could be directed to certain issues in this thread, that might be misrepresented in the manner that have been disrespectful to either of the sexes. The root of this thread lies in the girl being insensitive towards the deceased family and not being able to understand the true sacrifice of the deceased, although this has been expressed by many through biased opinions. Hence, I seek your cooperation in not branding NS as a waste of time, as alike many, I hold on to it very dearly.


    • YoungAndDangerous said

      Rachel, wake up your bloody idea. Not all Singaporean boys are weak. We go thru 2 long years of army and it doesn’t stop there, thereafter, there is 10 long years of reservist and yearly physical test.

      The question: Is it worth to give our 100% to serve our Nation?

      What do we get or awarded if we give our 100% commitment during our NS? When we are waking up every single morning 5:30am to do military trainings, the PRs and foreigners are taking their opportunity to gain benefits. They have the luxury of time to gain the work experience while we are suffering inside camp! We “chao keng” for a reason, what do you think we get if we give our 100%? lower salary than a NS-exempted PR or foreigner? How would u feel?

      You are as shameful as Huiting. You 2 can be best friends.

      • God said

        NS is supposed to be a system to make boys become men ? LOL who teach you such nonsense ? The media ??? You telling me those ang moh guys you find so mature have gone through NS ? No right ? Your whole post contradicts itself. The gov won’t encourage Sg guys to go overseas if they are like sheep mah. They would keep them here ! Gov not stupid de. You want you go migrate lah, go get some ang moh wife-beater that will probably divorce you in 2 years.

      Ms Rachel, you sound like a legit bimbo to me. Using as an example, can you forgive me if I joke about the death of your parents (albeit with truth to my words)? What do you know about our NS system? Have you served in it before? If not I suggest you to stfu before becoming a 2nd Huiting. You can migrate to other countries for all I care because I don’t think you are worthy from the protection from our NSFs and NS men you bitch =)D

      i dont agree that we’re weak – we’re simply pampered. and as for ur comment bout ang mohs being more mature, ever tried living with one with all that commitments and stuff? if it’s just the surface, anyone can be mature. as for it being a system to make boy become men, no, imo that idea is merely how we view it. NS is merely (imo) a more cost effective way to protect the country, and to instill all that fancy stuff – loyalty to country, bonding with fellow countrymen, the works. spoonfed and guided like little sheeps? not really. if we are spoonfed, we wouldnt need to do the shit we do. we’d just need to go for classes, and have the whole day after off, yet we aint having that. and about mature ang mohs, ever seen 27b/6?

    • lol @ SPG said

      typical SPG. ang moh guys better than us in everything? i think you watch too many hollywood movies already. maybe all the ‘weak’ singaporean guys you know are just your friends. not a good sample. seen those men who shed blood sweat and tears while serving or not? you try even going outfield la. i think you will just faint when you need to pee or shit. nuff said

      I hope your father die in reservist. Your brother (if you have one) die during army/ reservist. I hope your boyfriend die during army/reservist. If your boyfriend is from other country, I hope he dies in a war. When all we do is to protect your fucking ass and you are calling us to migrate. You should be the one who migrate and i hope you step on minefield. If your death can bring back the life of those NSFs who died, I really hope you die!

  141. Facts said

    Okay this is so c0ck. There are pros and cons. Sure i do agree we spent 2 years wasting time but on the other hand we do learn something new. It is time wasting as well as precious moments and knowledge gained, and to protect our nation. For job and $ wise, i will have to agree that most of the firms or companies do pay $200 extra, and i would actually prefer to gain that 200 increment after NS. Though i dont really like serving NS, but still, like i said, pros and cons, I dont enjoy & yet i enjoyed it. Contradicting yes but people out there know what i meant. $200 is a bonus, why not right?

    Oh by the way, that young lady there shouldnt have talk about us like that.

  143. Janice said

    She is such a disgrace to the girls in Singapore. Our guys spent two years of their lives serving the nation to protect us and instead of thanking them, all she could say was that they are weak? Wake up little girl. Reflect on yourself. Be ashamed of what you had said.

  144. YoungAndDangerous said

    Huiting, I hope you will be reading this…

    Are you as stupid as SMRT? Senseless, Mindless, Retarded, Thoughtless are the words to describe you.
    Firstly, your callous remarks shows how insensitive and unempathetic are you towards the deceased’s family. It is a precious life lost.

    Secondly, why would you want to stereotype your own fellow male counterparts? We serve the nation, give up our precious time to the nation, experience 2 long years of military trainings, 10 years of reservist and yearly physical fitness tests. For who? It’s for you, my dear. For our families and for the fellow female Singaporeans. I have full respect for the females in Singapore, they should not go thru the military life in my opinion. It is also tough for the girls to endure 9 months of pregnancy and they are not physically structured for the military trainings anyway. However, for Huiting to pass that remark was really senseless.

    Thirdly, before you judge the male Singaporeans, please take a look at some of the PR’s and foreigners in Singapore who have escaped or have planned to escape the Army enlistment. Some of them skipped army, worked as long as the girls in Singapore, gained more experience and some even earned higher than us(the poor male Singaporeans who have to be delayed for 2 years). It certainly cost us great opportunity cost. I’m sure you heard of this phrase; “Time is Money”. We, as male Singaporeans, “chao keng” for a reason, who the hell will care about us if will give our 100% in army? when we finally finished serving our NS, what do we get?? Lower salary than a exempted PR or foreigner? How would you feel? Hence, when you are typing that remark and while the Singapore Girls and Boys are having an internal war, the PR’s and foreigners whom escaped Army are having the last laugh!! and mind you, not only do they need not go thru 2-years of military life, they get privileges and priority in applying leave (e.g. Chinese New Year, we Singaporeans always have to give them priority). And we Male Singaporeans are indirectly serving the nation and protecting the PR and foreigners as well (as they escaped NS and gained precious time while we are serving 2 long years of NS)!!!!

    Thus, my whole point is that it is crude to pass such a remark on a life lost. That NSF served and died for his country. Think of the PRs and foreigners whom have escaped NS, if you still think male Singaporeans are weak, you have no hope.

    Not only infuriated many NSFs especially ME, a parent of NSF. Dominique was a camp mate of my dearest son. These NSFs in the infantry unit were having tough trainings days and nights even after POP. We parents could only spent weekends with own child. They booked out with cuts, bruises, rashes and etc. Do you know how much we missed our children? They are serving for their country n all times preparing themselves for war allowing all singaporeans and you to live in peace. How could this little gal be so childish to

  150. ASS - U - ME said

    This whole debate is so way out of context. The whole issue here is just about the girl being highly insensitive and too quick to judge on matters.

    The 3rd Battalion Singapore Infantry Regiment is one of SAF Army’s toughest training units. They are the forefront of our ground military rush during a war. They’re training regimes are meant to push people to the limit. That being said, the unit doesn’t design it’s training around torturing people. There are welfare measures such as water discipline regimes as well as ample opportunity to rest. We are not here to argue whether was it the commander who did not conduct proper and strict water discipline practice or it was the man who did not keep his end up.

    All we know is that something went wrong.

    Was he truly a “weakling”? We don’t know, maybe he’s body couldn’t take it anymore? Multiple internal stress and heat injury? Ill-discipline of water drinking regime? We are not talking about a one time hardcore training session, we are talking about multiple trainings of such standards piled up in a day, 5-6 days a week.

    Miss Zheng Huiting or anyone of else, would NOT be able to judge whether Lee Rui Feng is weak or not.

    Even more so, someone lost a very dear son, good brother, and a close friend. “Singaporeans weak” shouldn’t have been the first comment that came to anybody’s mind.

    This has NOTHING to do with who has the upper hand in opportunities and who doesn’t have to go through menstruation…

  151. Cindy said

    What was that girl thinking? Every man in NS or reservist is someone’s son, brother or husband. I am sure they will worry when their loved ones have to serve the nation. I have to worry when hubby goes in for reservist and he is now not so young and not so fit anymore. Lee Rui Feng does not look weak to me. He looks the sporty type. All guys in NS, just remember to take care of yourselves and remember your family is waiting for your safe return home.

  152. michka said

    So like, when we were in GSCC some of us left behind the equipment and the instructor was damn pissed off and we kena tekan like mad. We had to pump then carry the FBO and run up and down this small hill and then we sprint like mad back and forth the LZ and while we pushup change one of the instructors was like “WAH LAN SI LIAO SI LIAO KNS” and my friend was lying facedown about 50 meters away with his FBO everything on him and he was motionless and all the instructors immediately ask us sit down and everyone was crowding around him and i saw the medic come and do CPR and they quickly hush hush clean up and by that time we knew ho seh liao got night off.

    Yes, it is true that NS is about pushing your limits and overcoming challenges. Afterall combat is a strenous situation and we need soldiers who are up to the task – but instructors should be trained accordingly to push their men with reason, with a goal to make them better, not just to tekan until someone drops dead and then regret. They should keep an eye on people who they know going to CMI liao.

  155. Ang Mo Kau said

    Singapore gov’t haven’t tried one thing………ask PRs or FTs if they want to volunteer to be part of the defense force. What do you think will happen? What if PRs and FTs voluntarily come forward to volunteer??? Would you guys be scared? Then what excuse will you have left to hate them?

Dominique was a camp mate of my son. I am very proud of my son and all NSFs especially to those in this infantry unit.

    Taiwan which is more advanced than SG in the electronics industry, has a population 4.5 times that of SG, and is under constant pressure from china, has given up tying down their NSmen by reducing the mandatory period to a mere 4 months. i do not think that there should be pricks here hiding behind screens and scolding SG’s NSmen for having no faith in their country and being ingrates. because i have heard of guys here trying to escape NS with medical letters, and i consider those who go ahead with the process anyway to be far braver, even if they complain sometimes, than the keyboard warriors we find here. kudos to the NSmen in Singapore. for those who think that complaining about NS makes NSmen wusses, i’d like to see you not complain even for a second the moment you step into the workforce.

Many thanks to all the young men in Singapore who serve NS; and to their parents who raised them. I am a woman and a mother of boy and girl; i fullyi support the idea of women serving NS, even if it is in non-military areas such as community hospitals, semior citizens homes etc. Singapore is small, and we must depend on ourselves – dont expect others to help you in times of trouble.

Bringing in the bleeding issue and the salary issue is totally childish n irrelevant here. the girl who said this is a total insult to all Singaporeans as she said ‘Singaporeans are weak’. We ARE NOT WEAK, be it GUYS or GIRLS here in Singapore. This is just a sad incidence that we do not wish to see again…

    pls stop your arguements and everyone, be it guys or girls in Singapore plays a part in defending our own country. by working, we ensure our economy is stable with low unemployment rate n by serving NS, we ensure that we are trained in combat to defend ourselves in war time.

Knowing nothing, not even money or rank can bring their loved ones back to life.Putting else a side, someone might have lost a son, a brother, relative or a friend. Only if people understand what we went through to protect this country, this type of insensitive remarks wudn’t have circulated. Some might call recruits becoming weak and sorts, but they don’t realise these weak recruits are able to wake up at 5 am n den mrning pt at 5.15am when i feel that people who come up with these remarks cant even wake up at 5.30am daily. Very insensitive. So in future if u have brothers or sons or relatives and friends enlisted, u r just going to imply that they are weak? Shame on u. When there’s war someday, do u even have the guts to hold a bloody machine gun?

Give both miss Zheng and yourself a break alright, by trash talking about her doesn’t make any difference since remarks had been made, things had been done, can’t do much to rewind it isn’t it. Better than doing what you all are doing now, isn’t it better to take this time, a 5 mins of silence, to commemorate PTE Lee? Rather than trash talking about miss Zheng…I jolly well understand how our fellow guys in Singapore felt when miss Zheng made such comment, i too, was on fury upon seeing what she wrote, but what make it worst isn’t exactly what she wrote, it was us. Instead of offering our condolence to the deceased’s families and friends, we are debating something that’s not even related to his death. I dare to ask all the people in here, who actually go offer their condolence, or rather try to find the friends or families of the deceased? Touch your heart and ask this question, rather than spending time in here trying to pin point whoever is wrong or whatsoever, why not spend the time to commemorate PTE Lee?

    anyway singaporean girls are hopeless already. we singaporean guys protecting the land so that they can lust after ‘superior’ ang moh guys in parties and clubs. if u were a recruit and entered a SINGAPOREAN club, you will see how girls shun you while they bask in the attention of some ang moh guys. soldiers receive no respect here. maybe our singaporean girls will feel more secure with the olden day colonial British soldiers protecting Singapore. im pretty sure we will witness singaporean girls welcome them and treat them like heroes everywhere. and im pretty sure the ang moh recruits will be worshipped by singapore girls in our clubs. then when these manly soldiers flee singapore in case of war, they can bring all the singaporean girls away with them. look at the comment of Rachel no.130 above and im pretty sure thats the hard truth we guys have to face.

    …What the frak is wrong with this country? A healthy NS man is dead, and everyone’s attention is directed onto…one dumb chick? Let me point out that: 1. you do not honour this man’s memory by making one young woman’s idiocy the centrepiece for his death and/or expressing your hatred for her and all SG women, 2. there is obviously a problem with a system that (possibly) contributed to this man’s death and (definitely) encouraged ignorance as displayed by that young woman, AND 3. there is something wrong with this entire country’s culture since the majority of comments on this page are more intent at abusing people of the opposite gender than understanding where they are coming from.

    I’m pretty sure that Singapore is going to the dogs–and you know those guys who blame “undeserving girls and Fucking talents” (to quote one of you) and girls who want to marry “mature ang moh guys” (you love them and yet call them by such a derogatory term?)? It’ll all be thanks to them. For a country with a government that keeps going on about “constructive criticism,” there is an unbelievable lack of that here.

I saw my guy friends using heavy object to break his own left arm to drop to PES C. But of course… Got alot of gals out there like NATO (No Action Talk Only) Army is really tough which gals can never understand… Just like guys also will never understand how painful for a woman to give birth to their own child.

    I think the whole reason why this whole debate about insensitive comments, NS vs studying or working etc has occurred only because we are quick to generalise and make sweeping statements that aren’t reflective of the entire truth.

    Let’s not criticise anybody further, after all, what will we accomplish through such criticism? Instead, let’s just do what we can to not perpetuate stereotypes!

  189. Family Man said

    Marginalising of the Singaporean men’s efforts during NS should be made criminal!!!

  190. IQ vs CBQ said

    Many Zheng Huitings abound.. human but with a bird-brain.. akin to those blondes who make stupid comments. Why give her so much attention? The focus should be on better measures to prevent more such unfortunate waste of precious lives. One case of death is one too many!
    If 21 years old Private (PTE) Lee Rui Feng Dominique Sarron, from the 3rd Battalion of the Singapore Infantry Regiment (SIR), was asthmatic why was he undergoing the same training routine as the other healthier NS men? How often are mandatory medical check-ups done, esp for asthmatic cases…monthly? 3 monthly?

  191. IQ vs CBQ said

    Maybe time to give serious consideration to enlisting female citizens for NS. If other countries like Israel can do it so successfully, why not S’pore? The policy makers must be bold enough to make the change for a more secure S’pore. Many plausible reasons… falling birth rate, so decreasing number of male enlistees; helps to create level playing field for male & female citizens (Women’s Rights Organisations are always fighting for equal rights for women); opens up more career opportunities for women in the air force, navy & army; excellent way to groom more female leaders for the country (including potential political leaders); etc
    If females like Zheng Huiting are called up and given a taste of say a year military training, she probably will not utter stupid, insensitive comments about a fellow S’porean who has to sacrifice his life for the nation.

    • Andrew.R said

      Conscripts is different from a volunteers, just like how militia serves chiefly as filler material and cannot substitute a professional standing army, as a fellow NSmen, i think guys here are giving themselves too much credit and glory for what is due, we did not become soldiers because we wanted to defend the country, we did so just because we have no choice.

      Females are often used in support roles in an army because of the genetic difference, the typical female are less physically robust than a typical male and coupled with the fact that females bleed, it just doesn’t make a very good choice for them to serve as the main fighting force in an army.

      The victim did not sacrifice his life for the nation, sacrifice means to give up something precious for the sake of something or someone of a higher claim, in this respect, his death is accidental as he did not willfully forgo his life for the sake of another, he died in the line of duty.

    • pat neo said

      I totally agree with you.I sincerely hope that our goverment will’ve a review on this.We’re now a first world society,i believe we must all be mentally prepared for anything.Men and women as equal defending our homeland.
      Anyway,we’re just a small island.
      We’ll need one hell of a army to archieve our objective.

  192. ServedTheNation said

    This whole incident reminded me of a lad in GB, Swansea, who posted racist and abuse comments via tweeter towards a footballer who had cardiac arrest on the pitch recently. He got jailed for 56 days in prison to “reflect the public outrage’” of his comments. Well,i dont see why this girl shouldn’t get a similar sentence with accordance to the law in Singapore. There was sustained and gratuitous criticism. These were unprovoked comments and persistent abuse. I was disgusted.’

    • Andrew.R said

      Be objective, I believe racist comments are the key here… if we were to have such a law in Singapore, many of those who are posting here would have been in jail for propagating racist and abuse comment towards FTs in Singapore.

  193. Derrick said

    you people are so damn wrong. We NEVER had any addition pay AT ALL. I’ve been through interview for small company and big MNC but NONE have heard of this “more pay for NSmen” thingy.
    Total bullshit.

    As for the lady I hope she take this more seriously, its not like someone injured in army, someone actually died in the course of training. I wonder if she say the same thing if it is her brother.
    Total bullshit x 2.

  194. LJFACE said

    Some people say NS useless because Singapore no war.
    Next time your father got heart attack, don’t call ambulance, because the ambulance is run by a crew with NSFs on board
    Your House burn down don’t call fire engine, because most of the firemen are NSFs
    You kena rob at geylang, don’t call police, because some of them are NSFs as well

  195. Jas said

    there’s no need to overreact to what she said, what she said is so so ridiculous and delusional that netizens shouldn’t even bother arguing about it, because it’s wrong, no argument, nuff said. rest assured her comment is NOT NOT reflective of Sg girls. most of us are grateful for what guys go through in army, it’s tough, and it’s hard, really respect and admire guys for going through such tough training

  196. Bryan said

    I believe that the armed forces should be a force purely made up of regulars, however, too few Singaporeans feel having a career in the armed forces very apealing, myself included. Perhaps if the army offers better pay and benefits package as well as lifting the retirememt age limit to a reasonable level, people may decide to persue a career in the armed forces.

    Being a citizen of a country, the only thing that should be compulsary is taxes. Say you are posted to a combat unit, in training and in times of war, you are forced to risk life and limb on the field. Nobody, not even the government should have the right to force a person to do that.

    People say we have a duty to serve our country, I say we are serving our country by building it up financially as is, and should be given a choice if we want to serve our country in the military as well.

    What the girl said in the article is uncalled for and very insensitive, accidents happen, even when the SAF practically babies its army now a days.

  197. Peter said

    In life everything is unpredictable… So for those who are serving NS should take more precaution and if really cannot take it please sound out to the officer in charge AND DO NOT FORCE YOURSELF. Everyone has a limit. Athough endure and excel but different people have different body system. So take care everyone and RIP lee rui feng… Whether to accept or don’t accept her apologies I think leave it to lee rui feng parents.

  198. cheyenne said

    i believed THE TEMASEK TIMES is far too much too. Maybe the lady speak too lightly for this case, BUT I THINK, THE TEMASEK TIMES SHOULD NOT POST THE PERSON FACE AT ALL! How can they specially just find the person photo and post it. Human rights ok? She may be wrong at some point, but why must post the picture out? Or even gave out all her details? This is far too much. Just like previous case, the prostitute case, SHE HAVE HER OWN LIFE ! you guys just post the photo like that , how is the girl going to turn a new life?

    I read from so many article, straits time etc, i see no one posted the photo of the person who gave the third comment as i believed they want to protect the person. This lady, she may comment too lightly for this issue, how can temasek times post out the photo?

    I need something to be done. This is far too much. What if one day an unknown person attack this lady or another commentor ? **touch wood** Are temasek times going to bear the cost?

    I am not siding anyone but my point of view. Ns men are fighting hard! Please really take care~~~~

    I sacrificed 2 years for someone like her?!

  200. leftsgformoresimplegrass said

    Why should all Singaporean females who have read this feel embarrassed? Just because we are “female” & “Singaporean”, we should be associated with her? Relax girls, I am confident a lot of us girls in Singapore are of a different maturity wavelength. The mistake lies within herself and whoever who tries to defend her. If anyone should feel embarrass, it should be her family and friends, especially her parents. This just reflects alot on her upbrining – which is kind of sad, because there are many other people in Singapore who are ungracious and tactless like her.

    The fault also lies within the “need” to comment and tweet on social media, to feel like we need to fit in to today’s society.

    Or maybe this is just one of her viral marketing strategy, so that everyone is outraged and sucked into remembering “Zheng Huiting” as the name of 2012 – after all bad publicity is still publicity.

  201. First of all, our deep condolence to the family of Mr Lee Rui Feng Dominique Sarron.

    Next, for Ms Zheng Huiting, and everybody here, I’m sure there is a great lesson learnt.

    There are times when we can make casual remarks, but we have to be really sensitive to people around us, even in the cyber-world. This goes out to the folks who made offensive remarks about Ms Zheng, either in here or in other forums.

    A Dear Life Lost Cannot Be Replaced. Something Said Cannot Be Recalled. But Memories Will Stay With Us For Eternity!

    Life Goes On.
    Just let the matter rest and spare a thought for the families and parties involved.

    • Jiiny said

      Yes, totally agreed. Must spare a thought for dominique parents n his brother who are mourning for the loss of their closest kin. Let Dominique rest in peace. Also do not push the fault to Hui Ting’s parents. I am very sure by now, Hui Ting should have learnt a painful lesson she has created. She will be very careful with her future remarks.
      Let the matter rest asap.

  202. Xgda said

    I thought soldier will die at the battlefield but now it seem like even training can make soldier die. If guys who read this article and have not gone through National Service, they might think that serving/doing National Service is scary. Guys who died when they are serving/doing National Service, the government only support the next-of-kin and not the family. I think the government should support the family and not only the next-of-kin cause if the guy is married and have children, the next-of-kin will be the wife and what f the wife passed away, what can the children do(if they are teenage)???

    Ns is tough.
    Thats why we are called men.
    I personally wouldn’t want to see my girlfriend/wife/sis/mum fighting a war for my country, i would rather be the one dying for them instead of them dying for me.
    We men will definitely be unhappy about those comments some girls made here, but touch wood if there really is a war, we will want to fight for our loved ones and not helplessly see them die.

    I guess this is what most men feel.

    My heart goes out to Private Lee’s family.

    Intresting debate which moved away from the topic, should generally both males and females alike regardless of their origin within earth, are aware how hard the reality is? I remember when I first went to my national service, I was educated why we are there in the first place. Unlike the gift of land and resources that other countries have we had a small nation that we can call home. And at home, we have our families. We have to protect our family and home. It is simple but true.

    My officer asked what would you do if we get invaded tomorrow and we did not enlist you? Would you not draw arms and fight the battle to protect your loved ones? We cannot run away from the fact, both as male and female, we have a part to play if war pays us a visit. Our parents had a part to play when they at one time refused to send their sons to serve the nation, but did so knowing that war could come around anytime like it did in World War 2. But we are lucky, we never did get to see war, so like everything else we take war for granted.

    Once you take war for granted, you take the soldiers enlisted or not, who protect their families for granted. We lose our home and families. When I was young I felt the same, I hated NS but now more mature then before I look at the what we have and why we have it so lucky. It is because the men took arms to protect a small land, and their families. Wife and mothers understood that this is something their dear ones had to do.

    Now comes about the problem, some young people regardless male or female take war for granted. And thus they feel that man are weak if they cannot survive something as simple as National Service. But the truth is war is not easy, why should be the training to go to war?

    This behavior of certain young people does not extend to only national service but everything else in life. As each generation progresses, we make life better for the next, and eventually we reach a point we do not respect the previous generations achievements by quantifying it with the current generations abilities.

    Now understanding the problem, we need to educate everyone. We need to show a world without a silver lining, without the internet, without love through education. Truth be told, how many of us go around Youtube to look at war and it’s effects or a disease and it’s effects. If we can show this harsh reality of life and ask the young minds to make a better world instead of asking them to persue achievements. We might have a future in singapore and the world after all.

    As wise words go “Without darkness, you will never appreciate light”. I believe in “Show me the darkness, I will bring my lamp”.

  209. Damian said

    I’m sorry for the death, it is a tragedy – but I have to say that I agree with the girl’s comments somewhat… I think that Singaporeans are physically weak in comparison to others.

    Who am I to say this? Someone who went through NSF and was a PTI.

    I was born in Singapore and lived there for the first 8 years of my life before going overseas. When I was 17 I went back to do my NS.. I won the company best PT award without trying very hard..

    Why? Simple – because growing up in Singapore, emphasis is put on academic achievements and not athletic.
    The result? Singaporeans are academically stronger than average, but physically weaker than average.

    Yes it is generalising and there will always be exceptions, but seriously – compare a Singaporean soldier to an American, British or Australian soldier – physically which would you say is the weakest, without anymore information??

    I enjoyed my NS, had many good times, a few bad times, made friendships that will last forever, and learnt a whole lot. I’m not against NS or the Singapore army – but I do agree somewhat with the comment that ‘Singaporeans are weak’.

  210. Andy Goh said

    To Joey,
    I read your comment with great interest, I would agreed with what you had commented. However, sad to say, it exist neither in most employers’ HR guidelines nor policies. The idea only exist theoretically.

    Furthermore, I pitied your partner, if you have one. He will feel like giving you a tight slap and a “1 x Good 1” scolding to “Wake up your ideas”. But because he loves you too much he will swallow down his pride and ego just like what he did throughout the 2 years of his NS life, and continue thinking how to make full use of his “headstart” salary to love you and pamper you. While doing so you are publicly commenting that the “headstart” salary is more than enough to make up for the lost years.

    Is the “Headstart” salary enough for you if you are your current partner? Be truthful to yourself and be fair to your loving partner.

    Sorry, just to clarify here. South Africa is not backward and suffering from harsh famine. It hosted the 2010 world cup remember?

      To be honest, she is sick mindless filthy wretch, I can even try to forgive Huiting, But look at Renee? comparing and contrasting all the irrational things around her to make her verdict win, I hopefully, god hopefully feel that there are not many girls like her, I have a great respect for woman and this is just pretty depressing

    SCOLD THE GOVT! she just made a statement accidentally because she does not know what its like to serve NS. everyone says something wrong once in awhile. i can’t believe people get so upset just because of one single comment. i served 2 years of freaking NS too and i hated it. the real culprit is the one who did not make women serve NS too and if the law does not change, there will always be girls like her making such comments. dear Singaporeans, stop being so narrow minded. see the big picture and realize who is the real cause of this.

    All we can do is to honor our brother who died in duty.

    Singapore is so fucking safe, we got allies too. So we tend to neglect how lucky we are not to suffer everyday in fear from terrorist or wars like children in afghan.
    Ask anyone who has gone on salvation army trips or anything. You really have to watch your back.

    So our men like it or not are here, trained to defend you! from other bastards invading and raping our girls and shit.
    It may seem mediocre to some girls (like that bitch) but who do u come crying for help when a man is pinning you down against ur will.
    Singapore takes this precaution, who likes to waste time anyway i know i dont. but at least there is a cause.

    So Dom i salute you for training hard.

  220. 10cdo said

    To all NS guys: don’t drink too much water before strenuous exercise, always do proper warm-up/stretching, 30 minutes at least. Always “comb” your hair with your fingers to lower the heat when training under sun.

    To send girls for NS would be a waste of time. Discipline training should be taught by their mothers, not NS, schools, universities or poly. Girls are born naive and ill-discipline, that’s why ancient oriental/western/religious worlds all had strict guidelines for females.

    Guys must have big heart, so let’s give this young kid a break, she learned her lesson.

  223. evenstar6q said

    When I read threads like this I worry about our country and my generation. We’re all so good at complaining about the hand we’re dealt and calling each other names. We’re all just showing off our prejudices, our narrow-mindedness and insensitivity to others. Men aren’t the only ones who should be called on to defend our country. Women shouldn’t be paid less, and they are, across the globe, in most jobs, even now. Men shouldn’t be defined by their physical abilities and how they might make better soldiers, and neither should women: why are we defined by our ability to bear children? This is the 21st century! Men and women should be equals, but we’re not in the eyes of our government and even ourselves.

    We should be united in sorrow for our lost brother Pte Lee, not divided by the angry words of the small. We should be respectful of his memory, how he gave his life for his country, and of his family and friends. Arguing on internet forums and insulting one another doesn’t address issues of inequality and doesn’t help the strength of our nation. We’re so lucky to have grown up in a safe country and gone to schools with no guns and eaten good local food our whole lives. We need to be less aggressive towards our fellow Singaporeans because blame and threats will never solve anything.

      First and foremost man and woman cannot be equal as they are simply too different but yet that is why man and woman needs to depend on each other so as humanity can continue no as they cover up each other flaws with their strong point . So instead being equal ,we are incline to depend and support our counterparts .so ladys we Singaporean man isn’t weak but needs your support to be strong .so let bygones be bygones , our country is one not divided in two between the sexes .
      Yup I am a seventeen years old kid . And in most of your eyes I am immature and so I haven’t seen how ns training but when the time come I will gladly do my duty not because of government forcing me to but as a citizen I will do my duty and protect what little I have in the small nation

  224. L said

    I respect what OC Bravo although I don’t know him personally said and sincerely hope that every Singaporean gets chance to read that letter. That is true leadership and SAF should give him a medal!

    poor huiting got insulted so badly; I hope you understand that you have accidentally triggered many of us including myself; an old man who served in the Singapore Infantry Regiment 10 years ago for my NS.

    I feel that you should understand that the reason why you have been so hated is because of the lack of appreciation we as NS men feel whenever we draw our heavy arms, lose our sleep, and die trying to complete our NS. Some young Singaporean girls, but not all, feel that it is a man’s job and therefore we should suck up to that. Come on, that is preposterous! Why? Because in the military, boys who are not up for the training would usually skip them by faking illnesses, etc. And because this PTE did not do that, that is to say that he sucked that up, thinking that he did right for his land, his family, his friends, his future wife, his future sons, his future daughters, his future colleagues, his future country, by training as hard as possible. He definitely wouldn’t want to include you had he known what you think about him, honest. RIP BRO!

    On the other hand,

    It is disappointing that the some of the private sectors don’t truly appreciate our contribution, thinking that we would disrupt their business. It is more disappointing that some Singapore girls today join these private sectors by losing respect for us, seeing $ as more vital than national security.

    I can’t speak on behalf of every employer, but for my ex-employer; and as for you, well, you really should apologize to his parents for your incredibly disgusting remarks about us. God will forgive, and we will forget you.

    Thank You.

    Zheng Huiting is truly a CCB bitch who needs to be f^^ked front & back by all NSF men to make her come to her senses … no pity for such a bird-brain nincompoop.

  226. Undeniably consider that that you stated. Your favorite justification seemed to be on
    the internet the simplest factor to have in mind of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed at the same time as other folks consider
    concerns that they just do not understand about. You controlled
