Are S'porean girls "materialistic and childish"?

A Singaporean woman's candid comments on the flaws of local women has been making waves on social media.

That's right, a woman lashing out at her own kind.

Captured on citizen journalism website, Stomp, the strongly-worded Facebook post said Singapore women are "materialistic, judgemental, slutty and childish" and these are reasons why local men are flocking to foreign girls.

According to a Razor interview with people on the street, most seem to agree that Singaporean girls do seem to love the luxuries in life.

Said one guy: "But at the same time, you can't really blame them, because sometimes you have to be pragmatic as well, maybe there's a fine line between being pragmatic and being materialistic."

And what crosses the line?

"Maybe going overboard in spending on excesses - like luxury bags. Once in a while is fine, but not every month."

Said one Singaporean woman interviewed by RazorTV: "It's a realistic expectation... it's not like all of them are going after millionaires, they just want steady prospects in the future."

Another Singaporean woman said: "Local girls are getting more choosy, I guess. We want high standards of living and have high expectations of guys material-wise, who doesn't want the best for themselves, right? But it's still subjective.

"Yes (they are) materialistic, to a certain extent. But again, this is the needs currently, so that's how they became, I don't think there is anything wrong," said a Singaporean woman who was interviewed.
