FT, he will never be Singaporean coz he was not born here
OK, to be fair, I think should be a Sinkee already.
Before 5 years old, think not too much influences. Primary 1 (7 year old) onward, that's the time he grow up. Think the growing part is the main thing. If he grow up with Sinkees, his behavior and thinkings also sinkified already.
Should be, if he did not get any IC from other country.

Ft or not no difference. He will become a minister and sinkees will sink further.
TS does not seem to grasp the issue. The issue is the displacement of able, healthy and keen Singaporeans who are priced out by cheap FTs. The issue is about poor intergration and the formation of ghettos. The issue is treating Singaporeans as 2nd class citizens in their own country. No other country has this issue.
This guy went thru the Singapore system from kindergarden. He will also face similar issue as he is a Singapirean. He will ask the same question on why he did NS.
By the way, the article is misleading. If he does not do NS voluntarily, he cannot remain in Singapore after the age of 21 yrs. Sure he has the option of going back to China but having spent nearly all his life in Singapore, he would be lost. Though technically it is voluntary its akin to asking me if I would volunteer too swim with the sharks or without the sharks. Technically. I was given a choice. Guess what I would choose.
I am just surprised that Singaporeans don't seem to know their own country.
I am not surprised. The pappies is doing a good job of feeding slow reacting poison to the minds of Sinkees for decades.
If one is prepared to serve NS for 2 1/2years and return for reservist duties, that is good enough for me to warrant the Pink IC.
He was given the choice of doing NS or not. The fact that he has chosen to do NS is his choice. Singapore citizens are treated as second-class. We are NOT given the choice.
To me, as long as one comes here before the age of 7 (Primary One) and takes up citizenship before 21 years, he is a true Turquoise (still not true blue) Singaporean.
Yes, most of his youth is in SG and serve NS, he should be given Honourable SG, just like in old south Africa, Jap and Taiwanese are consider honourable white.
There is an old axiom that people will believe what they want to believe no matter the truth.
Learn from the Swiss lah. Getting Swiss citizenship is even harder than finding a Singaporean with balls. To become a naturalised Swiss citizen, you would need to have lived in Switzerland for at least 12 years, prove that you've integrated and be able to speak at least one of their four official languages.
