One day God turned to the Archangel Gabriel and said : "
Today I am going to create a land called Singapore, it will
be a land of outstanding natural efficiency, it shall have tall
majestic skyscrapers full of intelligent and hardworking
It will have the best of everything. Good government,
excellent public transport, minimal traffic jams, art and the
Internet will prosper here. Good recreation facilities will
abound, . . . . . .

God continues . . . . . . " I shall make the government
corruption free so that the inhabitants prosper, I shall call
these inhabitants
Singaporeans, they shall be known as one of the most
friendly people of earth "

" But Lord, " asked Gabriel.

" don't you think you are being too generous to these
Singaporeans ? "

" Not really, " replied God " just wait and see what kind
of NEIGHBORS I am going to give them . . . "
