Pinoy new citizen ticked off NSman: You have such a LOSER mentality!
Posted by temasektimes on May 1, 2012
He did not serve a single day of National Service and became a Singapore citizen only two years ago at the invitation of the PAP government, but Angelo Marc Jandugan behaves as if he is the rightful owner of Singapore and ticked off a Singapore NSman like nobody’s business!
Angelo Marc Jandugan has earlier implored PM Lee to ignore the ‘noise’ made by Singaporeans and continue his ‘good policy’ of bringing more foreigners into Singapore:
“Hello sir, on behalf of all the Filipino community in Singapore and new citizens like myself, we thank you so much for believing in us and I hope you will continue your good policy of bringing more people from all over the word to take Singapore forward.”

His insensitive remarks were bombarded by many angry Singaporeans, one of whom is Mark Lee who served two and a half years of National Service and ten years of reservist in a combat unit to protect the likes of Angelo Marc Jandugan and other foreigners.
When Mark wrote to Angelo Marc Jandugan to protest against his remarks, Angelo Marc Jandugan gave him a tongue-lashing:
“You have such a LOSER mentality. You have to wake up….We have people earning so much than you guys..”
He also revealed he became a citizen in 2009 and boasted about having people in the PAP grassroots organizations:
“For your info, I became a citizen in 2009 and voted for GE2011. We have people in your grassroots, RC and PA. We have new citizens who have gone on to become MPs in Punggol.”
He ended his rant at Mark by saying he has the support of the PAP government:
“….we have the FULL support of your government and we love them. They believe in our talent. Face the new reality, migrate somewhere else cause you can’t stop more of my people (from Philippines) from coming here.”
According to his Facebook page, Angelo Marc Jandugan graduated from the University of the Philippines Diliman and is currently working at Deutsche Bank, Singapore. He is probably earning much more here in Singapore than back home.
The University of the Philippines Diliman, is ranked 332 by QS, and 753 by webometrics but can’t be found on the list of THE and ARWU.
Mark Lee may have served his National Service faithfully and even sustained injuries during his stint, but he is still considered a ‘second class citizen’ in Singapore compared to newcomers like Angelo Marc Jandugan whom the PAP government has been exhorting Singaporeans constantly to make them feel ‘welcomed’ in Singapore.
Speaking at a forum recently, Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean said:
“Singaporeans need to do their part to make newcomers feel welcome, and to help them imbibe the values that have made Singapore strong as a society.”
With new citizens like Angelo Marc Jandugan supplanting native Singaporeans, it may be their responsibility to make us feel ‘welcome’ in Singapore instead.
