Facebook user Prabu Ramachandran shared about an altercation he had with a foreigner in the Raffles Place area. It happened after the foreigner made a snide remark when he saw Prabu riding on the footpath. The user said that he is aware of the code of conduct for safe sharing of paths.


Being agitated by the snide remark, Prabu shouted at the foreigner who he described as Ang Mo and said, “don’t come to Singapore and tell a Singaporean what can or cannot be done!”

Prabu said that he was taken aback and amazed at the same time when a group of people applauding him when he said that to the foreigner. He assumed those that clapped, cheering his outburst, were all Singaporeans.
