What is a “good country” to me? Do I consider Singapore a good country?
A good country to me is a country that makes me feel safe where ever i go to, and a country that cares about the citizen’s well-being such as listening to their needs and wants. I feel that Singapore is a good country and i am blessed to be born as a Singaporean. The government of Singapore has worked really hard to make Singapore a multi-ethnic country where people from different races can work and live together in harmony, which i feel that is something hard to achieve and hard to find in other countries. I also feel very safe and well-protected in Singapore as i am able to roam around during the night time, which i heard that in many countries it is very unsafe to walk alone at night. After visiting the RSAF open house, i also realised how powerful Singapore’s air force is, because of its high-tech weapons and aircrafts they use, they are able to protect Singapore from aggressors. I also feel thankful to live in Singapore because of the healthcare system. We have one of the best healthcare system in the world, and this makes patients from overseas to come and visit Singapore for treatment. The government have also provided us with different subsidy rates which ensure that every Singaporeans are treated fairly, and enable them to receive treatment even if they are poor. However, the only thing i’m unhappy about is that Singapore’s work life and study life is very stressful unlike in other countries such as in Australia or the US they have a more care-free life due to their different culture and environment. However, i can’t complain as Singapore has served the citizens well and we have to remember that there is no perfect country in this world, we have our flaws too, therefore i’m proud to say that i’m a Singaporean!
