Back in 2011,

when I was searching for some school related stuff on yahoo,

the website kept popping up in many of my searches.

I did not fall off my chair, but ignored it completely . :lol:

Back then, I refused to be associated with the 'K' word.

but I became curious after some time, and clicked on it…….. :smile:

I was in Singapore on holiday and saw my aunt browsing the forum. And it looked interesting so I lurked for a while. I'm also interested in different kinds of education systems, so I really enjoy this site.

Me too. When I was introduced to Kiasuparents, I just ignored it as I also refused to be associated with the K word :rotflmao:

And see what is happening now :laugh:

I don't think many people who are drunk would admit that they are drunk. And admission is the first step towards resolution :).

We cheekily set up this site to help KiasuParents consolidate their resources, and for parents who think that they are not kiasu to re-examine their positions :)

The real kiasu parents are those that do not share their experiences, hoping to get an edge by knowing more than others. That would be against the spirit of KiasuParents.com.

I was more kaypo than kiasu. I was active in some other forums when came across kiasuparents than realised that this forum lagi suit me. Now I only active in this forum though not as much as when I first started. :oops:

Yet, I still enjoy reading contributions cos still quite interesting. I should say this is one of the best, if not the best forum cos everybody very friendly and helpful. I think chief deserves credit for this and making this forum so successful. :udaman: :udaman: :udaman:

Hear hear.....I ventured in, curious what this site had to offer. The name la...intriguing to say the least.

It was amazing to find just one place that allows parents to share info with other. The school balloting history was so godsend in the 'dark ages' when clueless ones like me won't have a clue as to my chances for xyz pri schools.

Despite the negative connotations kiasu has in this society, seeing the spirit of sharing, and caring, in this forum.....I'm proud to be a kiasuparent. :love:
