too drama already

The ethnocentrism exhibited by the writer of this letter is (unintentionally?) hilarious!

Pestilential vuvu

‘I’m relieved it’s not found anywhere else. I hope Singapore will steer clear of this headache-inducing, eardrum-shattering, uncivil instrument. Ban it.’

MR ANDREW CHOY: ‘I was in South Africa last month prior to the start of the current Fifa World Cup football tournament which the country is hosting. The joyful atmosphere in the streets was marred by the pestilential din made by a native trumpet, the vuvuzela. I was appalled by the inconsiderate, incessant blaring and I’m relieved it’s not found anywhere else.

I hope Singapore will steer clear of this headache-inducing, eardrum-shattering, uncivil instrument and that the authorities will nip in the bud any bid to turn it into a trend. In short, ban it from all event venues here.’
