Foreigners amused at kiasu Singaporeans who queue even when overseas

Singaporeans started queuing outside a departure gate at the Phuket airport even before the announcement to board had been made, much to the amusement of some foreigners. STOMPer buay tahan elaborates: "Singaporeans being Kiasu even in Phuket. "I was waiting for my Tiger Airways flight back to Singapore at the Phuket airport on Wednesday (Nov 30). "Even before the screen at the departure gate flashed the announcement to board, Singaporeans had started queuing already. "Some Caucasian foreigners sitting behind me were amused, and I heard them say: "Why are they queuing?" "I feel quite ashamed of such actions when there are no queues at other gates. "In the end, the Singaporeans queued for 15 minutes before the gate opened for them to board the plane."
