We had lunch in a restaurant in Singapore, located in a social club. Dad and Mom are members of the social club. To generate more revenue, the club decreed that every 3 months, members have to pay US$100 in membership, including a minimum spending levy of US$70 in the Club. My parents, being...
Lets me take a look on this FTs issues using my own opinion. There is no other way for Singapore to be Economically competitive without additional manpower. Since our birth rate has hit all new lows, it only made sense to recruit more FTs to fill the gaps. Citizen were fuming as the number of...

Over the course of history, people have used fancy ideologies and control the masses and gain power - and they prosecute them afterwards. It can be seen in past history, especially with regards to countries who chose Communism and its classless society, but failed. The elites still...

My government is actively promoting new births. I usually dismiss such political exercises. Look at our younger friends. They have to go through endless and mindless standardised testing, everywhere around the world, be they are in Singapore or the United States. They grow up with lower...
I have a vision for the autism community around the world. I hope that eventually, all around the world, people with autism can be empowered and enabled to contribute to the world, through their unique gifts and talents that they share with the rest of the world, regardless of autism functioning...

I know clearly what my dreams are. It is just that I need some time to settle in my thoughts, before articulating them in words. Definitely, it's not my parents'. My parents want me to be a doctor, or someone who do some form of medicine. Given that I have already depression since I was 17...

Looks un-Aspie? Since fashion is a social construct, and Asperger's is a disorder that seems to affect social functioning, we're going to take a dig at society. After all, they seem more interested to exclude us Aspies just because of what we consistently do that society does not seem to...

These are the issues on how cultural aspects do affect People with Special Experiences (PSEs). (1) There are family/clan-based politics. Asian society is patriarchal in general. The first son in the family is almost prepared to succeed the position of leading the whole clan. If he has a...

Someone I knew made an observation: Some group of people live a land where food is so easy to find. You can catch a fish, grab one coconut, harvest one banana and lay down on the sandy beaches, all within the yard of your house, for 1000+ years. Then a group of people came to the land...

Currently, left-wing politics is the hope for Europe and most other industrialised nations in the world. Social change for an egalitarian society should be achieved, as the Left Wing emphasised in their rallies. On the other hand, right wingers support or acceptance of social hierarchy, as...
I don?t usually like to talk about some things but here I am and I suppose that if I don?t talk about things I give them free rein to run roughshod all over my life, I actually try to take control more often than not, I try to head it off at the pass and I don?t allow it to take full possession...
I'm from a very small town (about population 350) so honestly I've never encountered a true gangster. But what I have seen is the people who think they are gangsters. This pisses me off. So much. Not because they're "posers" but because no one ever stops and wonders WHY you would DESIRE to be a...
So what am I exactly? In an Aspie gathering, I feel overstretched and overworked. I used to think, well, I am an Aspie... I got a high IQ, I have some personal issues. Your Aspie score: 14 of 200 Your neurotypical (non-autistic) score: 178 of 200 You are very likely neurotypical I...
