In a village, everyone knows each other. Communication is usually face to face, and there is
little privacy. In towns, like Punggol, which are much more densely populated, it is much more difficult to be
friendly to people you see on the streets. You can't go around smiling at people and say
"Hi", unless you are a cute baby, or you are a celebrity. Okay, you probably can..
but the response will most likely be a blank stare. It is not possible to know everyone in Punggol, therefore
the solution is to know no one.|
Increasing, communication goes through email (everyone can get free email addresses), instant
messengers like ICQ, MSN Messenger, Yahoo, Google Talk. Even family members send SMS to each other,
when they are all present, and in the same house in Punggol.. but just different rooms.
People feel safe when they are semi anonymous, and there is privacy. Don't wish to talk? Just logoff.
No confrontation required. The need to express our views is so great that Singaporeans create blogs,
and post our daily lives and views on line for everyone to see. We have a section on blogs.. blogs of
living in, working in or people who just want to talk about Punggol. If you have a blog, and want to
get listed, please send an email.
And for the rest of us in Punggol who don't have blogs.. we have forums.. please
