The status class amongst the people in Singapore is getting obvious. I guess that this is the type of signs which is reflecting in Singapore. People tend to compare with one other. I believe that this is due to the desire to make one feel better and show that one is superior than another in respect of the status. I have different views. I feel that it is better for one to compare with oneself. Focus on getting better than oneself. This is more practical.
My two cents of views.
