Which part of the Let Us Be A Global Hub dream did Singaporeans not understand?As Sengkang GRC MP Jamus Lim found out in a recent walkabout in Sengkang GRC, he met two residents with two different sets of anxiety that helped explain what the rest of us can actually witness right in front of us in our daily lives.

This fear was further corroborated by his impression that many foreign nationals working here tended to favour their own countrymen, further alienating Singaporeans when they seek at job at home.
