Are you color blind?

An interesting notion that was use in Petronas advertisement which talks about different racial group.

I cannot help but notice that Singapore racial lines are getting blurred; Chinese now includes PRCs and Malaysian Chinese. Kind of made me think that Singapore is no longer just a multi-racial society, it just something more different and unique. Is it a good thing? I have no idea.

But i'm always curious how other countries with population like Singapore such as Finland and New Zealand managed to staff their economy with just locals, while some sectors like service and construction sectors have to rely on foreign workers. Someone once told me that it is because these countries have minimum wages, therefore people are willing to do these jobs. Maybe, but i'm not entirely convinced. Maybe it is just the stigma that we have created for ourselves over the years. Quite a heavy topic for an early morning eh....
