30% foreigners? Oh blimey...

We all know that there are a number of foreign talents among our midst. When the numbers are published, it just hit me at how many there are. I mean... hey, it's like 3 in 10 of us. It's already discounting those who goes to and fro the causeway daily.

London with its 7 million inhabitants, has faced the same issues for quite some time. The metropolitian city welcomes foreigners with open arms... though the welcome is getting abit colder since the 7th July bomb attack. However, the influx has tranformed London into a more colourful place to live in though there are tons of other concerns as well.

Unlike London, Singapore is a city state of 4.3 million. A proportional increase in foreigners is bound to affect us to a greater extent. Let's hope that it's for the better.
