Another Crazy Singaporean Son

Remember MJ? Well I'm glad to announce that MJ is still alive at this point of time. In fact from his messages via whatsapp, he has safely reached Margaret River and is probably snoring happily in a farm stay now.

We met up about thrice and had a meal together with everyone else. Though his job hunt seems to be heading nowhere at the moment, he decided to keep his chin up, rented a car and headed for the adventure of his life by driving down south ALONE. His destination is Esperance. Never judge a man by his looks. MJ is scholarly-looking but he has balls of steel. We await with abated breathe to hear his Esperance tales. Sad to say, none of us made it there before. We hope to see him back alive, preferably with a wife - as that will solve a big part of his problem.

Shockingly after I blogged about MJ, another Singaporean son emailed. He contacted me because he found his situation similar to MJ's. Upon sharing his story, I realised another gila Singaporean son has joined the brotherhood. Brotherhood of Steel Balls.

With his permission I attach his email here, introducing J:


I have been following your blog since the start of this year. Chance upon your blog while I'm searching for more political blogs by Singaporeans. And shortly after I found your blog, my friend introduce your blog to me too.

It was a pleasant surprise to find you and the blog chronicling your journey to migration as I was planning for my move too. While mine was decided last year August, I kept things close to myself, with only family and a few close friends knowing my decision. Unlike you, I didn't kept a blog to record my journey until recently.

Your blog posts and reflections really help me a lot, guiding me along my path as well as further cement my decision to take this big step for my future. Similarly, I have lost my faith in PAP during my uni days, when I see and experienced first hand, the stupidity and uselessness of the foreign scholarships system and it had grown since then.

Last year elections was a big disappointment for me as I thought Singaporeans had enough and were really to let PAP know but alas, it wasn't and I believe we lost the chance to help our country. In fact, I don't know if Singapore can still afford the 5 years before the next elections.

Lots of factors affect my decision which I hope to think through it before putting it down on my blog in the future.

For me, I resigned from my job in Feb, flew to New Zealand on 14 March on a work holiday visa, when I'm now currently looking for a job in order to get a permanent visa under their skilled migrant category. Very big leap for me, at the age of 27, going 28 soon, alone in Auckland, first time being away from home alone and for a long period of time.

I do hope this will end up well though it's hard to predict the future. Just want to let you know that you are an inspiration for me and I like your blog very much.



Hi J,

Oh dear, you meant to say you went to NZ without a PR and is looking for a job?
I  just met MJ today from Singapore and he is in Perth doing the exact thing as you. He's around your age group as well

What's happening to Singapore and the young?

I wonder should I be publishing your incredible leap. Tell me if you are comfortable with it.

I wish you all the best in your adventures. Let's keep in contact and share our experiences.


Hi Nix,

Yup, I did exactly the same thing as MJ. I took almost all my savings from my 2 years of work after graduation to come NZ. Although I differ from u & MJ, as I hire the services of a immigration agent to help me through the paperwork and process last August. Been planning for a move since then though now that I seen your journey, I would say your path would be the better one, as I can take on any job compared to now where I need to get a job in their skilled migrant category. 

In fact, I was very surprised to read abt MJ situation on your blog just before I fly off as it's quite similar to mine. Help me wish him all the best.

My exact situation now is that I'm in NZ on a 6 months working holiday visa, during this time, i need to find a job to qualify me for their work visa under their skilled migrant category. The working holiday visa is meant for employer to give me a contract job first while the application for the work visa is processed, so that meant that I can in fact start work right away instead of waiting. If by 6 months, I still cannot find a job to qualify for their skilled migrant visa, I would have to return to Singapore and plan again, maybe searching for a different path.

As for what's happening to Singapore and the young, I have my personal view on it and it could be quite extreme for most people. Personally, I think it's too late for Singapore liao. We lost the chance to get back our country from the PAP in last year election. Our country is going down the path of no return and she will be lost in maybe 50 years, either collapse internally, or taken over from the inside by China or India. Quite extreme I must say.

As for the young, I think after they go through the education system (seeing the foreign scholarship crap) or out working (seeing the FT matter), they would lose their sense of belonging. In fact, I know of a lot of my friends planning to retire in other places, not in Singapore. They see Singapore as the place to earn money only. Some even want to migrate but because of family, friends, other issues stopping them, they didn't go about to take that big step.

I'm ok with u publishing my leap of faith for I hope it may aspire more ppl to share their experiences though I like to keep my name private for now. Just use J to describe me can liao.

Yeah, let's keep in contact and share our experiences. In fact, I think I have a lot to learn from u and others who came before us. For me, I just finding my way around Auckland after arriving here on the 15th March. Tomorrow I'll be starting my job search, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.


Hi J,

I've read your blog and found it more exciting than reading my own.
NZ is indeed a beautiful place, admittedly nicer than Perth. 

I'll be looking forward to introduce your blog to whoever who reads mine when you are ready.

Before that I'll probably share your story the way you prefer, with your name as J only.

I'm just wonder why do you have these 'extreme' views about the future of Singapore and how do peers around your age view your sentiments?


*J has since replied.*

My comments:

Firstly, to address J if you are reading my blog. I have yet to reply your latest email which I am hesitant to publish for now. The content of your reply made me sad. Some sentiments reminded me of what MJ shared with me. It also reminded me of NS's story about her struggles in the teaching arena which I hope to share upon granted the permission to. NS has packed up her bag a few weeks ago and is currently in Newcastle, Australia. The last one in my mind is I.S, an active commentor in my blog in the earlier days, currently residing in Adelaide.

Though all 4 of you have different stories, the common factor of the 4 of you is your youth. This is alarming because Singapore cannot afford to lose people who have not even reached the peak of their careers like that. I am not sure how representative this is. Perhaps amount of brain drain is too small to worry the government. Only they know.

Within a month we get to know 2 gila Singaporean sons trying their luck in foreign lands without obtaining a working visa. What drove these chaps to this extents? Many answers lies in J's latest reply. I wonder how many more young Singaporeans are attempting to leave the country. 

Wonder if anyone is concern about this sad state of things?

  1. J will face a more successful way into NZ. The biggest advantage he has right now is being there: Kiwis interview face-to-face and shun phone or any form of interviews remotely unless the job demands very highly specialized and skilled shortages (I had to participate in a phone interview with a russian from vladivostok before we hired him)

    For J, or jobs would be the first place to look.

    Working visas is simple. Wait till J discovers that with a working visa, if J is in a skills shortages list, residency applications can be accelerated and shortened to a mere 1 month wait. Enjoy Auckland, and get hold of the culture there, FAST. J will need a car and drive lots and explore. Bank accounts. IRD accounts. POBOX. Phone. Mobile internet if feasible (telecom wcdma with better reach esp to farmstays, or vodafone gsm for portability/compatibility across more devices but weaker signals in rurals), and tag your CV's with your POBOX address and phone number pronto. Ignore the kiwi jibes about "Auckland is not New Zealand" -- the dearth of jobs since 2008 has ensured that AKLD remain the highest probability of securing a job due to its sheer population size, relatively.

    Hopefully J stays away from the southern suburbs (south of bombay hills is ok) -- you don't need higher crime probabilities to add another dimension to your life.

    Above all things integrate with kiwis well. Maori is overrated so try reaching a point where even Singaporeans can't tell you're a Singaporean when speaking on the phone (get that kiwi accent!)

    1. Hi GA, just out of curiosity.
      How is the job situation in NZ? I have met many NZealanders who left to work in Aust. They told me they could not find work??

      I did not like Auckland last time I was there(too crowded, or maybe cos i stayed in skycity), but I loved the countryside..

      kia ora!

    2. G'day Peck,

      The job situation in NZ is, in my own words, dire. In all economic recessions, NZ gets hit the worst (too much export dependencies, little demand from overseas).

      The economy (and hence jobs) have not picked up much since 2008. There was a slight spike in 2010 but nowhere near the 2003-2007 periods (maybe half as good?), but 2011 and right now it's .... bad. So is 2012.

      No matter what the overall volume is, the biggest hiring season is March each year. Just go to , sign up and create job search profiles to email to you everyday, and you'd progressively get a clue on what the demand is like.

      The higher skilled folks will find no jobs in NZ, or they will, but will have to settle for sub-par salaries. But established kiwis would find that the pay discrepencies between the two sides of the ditch (the tasman sea) is as wide as 50% (that's 1/3 more) at least, so we have a situation where 1 in 8 of kiwis are now living overseas for jobs, most of them in .... Australia.

      Limpeh's boss is one example. There are very little market opportunities for what his company does down under in New Zealand, even maybe in Australia.

      But there are some aspects of life that even money can't pay, when considering living in NZ. For me, it's the population footprint, and the relative freedom from nanny-states like VIC, NSW, etc. If you thought Singapore was a "fine" country, stepping into Australia would be like a duck to water.

      If you were to live in AKLD, consider the North Shore onward, or even further up north from the Rodney district. AKLD = more jobs than WGTN or CHCH or elsewhere, so balancing a quiet lifestyle with that would bring one's stay northward.

    3. Hi GA,

      Thank you for sharing about the realities of work in NZ.
      Based on what I understand after reading it, what follows below describes my current impressions.
      If you like, kindly correct any misconceptions I might have.

      - Chances are if our young family of 2 boys submit an EOI and get approved to apply, we'll not get a resident visa but a working holiday visa.

      - If we manage to arrive on Kiwi soil this way, we can forget about my past qualifications and experience an English teacher, and my wife becoming a counsellor, whom she is a mature student seeking to graduate to work as.
      Or else we take low pay.

      - Low pay for both working parents assumes our family of 4 would face actual material hardship, even with a frugal lifestyle (I don't actually believe that, but can be convinced).

      - Our intention to avoid more crowded Auckland, and quietly arrive at Wellington, is impractical and ill-advised.

      We don't think we qualify any longer for Oz migration, since July 2011, due to the heavy emphasis on points from recent work experience.

      I would like to believe that our family has the correct mindset to start from basics in NZ, but we would never know until we face the actual situation.

      That is why I'd be grateful if you have constructive opinions to share.

    4. @GA: Thanks for your advice. That's precisely the reason why I came to NZ bcos I need to be here physically for interviews.

      And as you mentioned, I'm currently using those websites as well as job agencies for my job search.

      As a matter of fact, what is stopping me from the working visa is that I need a job. All my paperwork had been done already before I came over to NZ. And my education is on their long term skills shortage list which is a plus. Yet the thing about my situation is that my work experience varies widely (I worked in a different industry from my education)

      Auckland is great and the weather good for me though I still trying to gasp the culture as well as try to get the kiwis to understand my English. pronunciation had nv been my strong point so may need time to get the kiwi accent.

      While I have a license, I nv own the car before n the cost incurred may drain out the money i bought over fast, so I KIV on owning a car for now. Bank account and local mobile number done. As my internet wise, I using my accommodation well as the library internet. Not getting my IRD no yet cos my agent says it can be done easily though I considering getting one. As for POBOX, I didn't get it but instead using my accommodation address on my CV.

      I currently staying near the CBD area, so shouldn't encounter the higher crime probabilities u mentioned.

      @ Alan: While I'm still new to NZ, I may not have all the answer

      EOI submission is for work visa, not for working holiday which is a separate submission. As I last check, selected EOI have 140pts or 100pts with job. The rest are not selected but remain in the pool. I'm not expecting much changes in these points as they are not varying much over the months.

      Again, I have to agree with Nix on this. What is and how do u define low pay? NZ have a minimum wage, so I believe it's still survivable as long as u maintain a frugal lifestyle.

      Past experience still counts but of course, the kiwi experience may be against u, like me too. But it can be surmount by volunteering or doing part time work while searching for your job. This will in effect allow you to network with more ppl.

      As for the job market here, I don't think I'm in position to comment though since I'm still jobless. hahaha.. But judging from what I see in SEEK, a lot of job do come from Auckland region.

      And what is crowded? I think after Singapore, Auckland is considered a blessing. hahaha..


    5. This is the 2nd and last bit of the GA's reply comment to me on Wed, Mar 28, 2012 at 4:37 AM, which did not appear on this thread, as it should.

      For anyone else's benefit too, if any:

      "So that's your homework right there. Try to understand what lifestyle is like in typical
      western countries like NZ/OZ/Canada and what services residents pay if they don't DIY. In
      NZ we DIY a shitload (google up the number 8 wire mentality) compared to our Aussie
      brethren so conversely offering such services is hard

      "Not a lot more to add really. Just these:
      - You need to be f2f with locals here to stand a chance of going for job interviews, let
      alone job offers.
      - Working holiday visas are for those 30 years and below, in NZ.
      - The beachhead (entry into country, and establishing a job, lifestyle, infrastructure,
      etc) is the singlemost important step and thus require the most amount of creativity,
      regardless of method (ends justify means!!) Thus look at any part of your skills and
      attempt to translate to what NZ jobs are looking for, and sell it to them. Everything else
      thereafter pales in comparison."

      Again, thank you, GA, for your informative opinion.

      My most important takeaway from here is:
      put aside one's past lives and careers on red-dot island.
      Start afresh on Aotearoa.

      Doesn't scare me; actually, it sounds like a 2nd adventure in life, after the careless bonfires of youth have given away to to the vaster subterranean wealth of geothermal heat.

      So why aren't we going over yet?
      Because we have to respect our young boys.
      One is approaching the point of no return only too soon, for his national liability, and is in no way ready for the harshness of child, teenage and young adult life.
      The other is but a toddler.
      Yet if as parents we are albatrosses, then we are responsible that the chicks can at least fly off the cliffs and not plunge to their deaths in the sea, before they can reclaim the skies.

      So here we will have no choice but to nest.
      On these austere, weatherbeaten cliff tops.
      Only having the trust in one another to continue preparing the next generation.

      But we thank you for your extensive birdsong, which has still given us much hope.
      Hope that out there in the whole wide world, are other kin, other nests awaiting.

    6. J, thank you for replying and encouraging us too!
      I like your 'crowded?!' joke about Auckland — it's really on S'pore, actually! X-D

      I refuse to pointlessly lament "if only we were single / not tied down with family" — family has given me so much, and I am not ungrateful!

      So my natural concern continues to be, especially as a still-new father:
      how to minimise unnecessary suffering for my family, and maximise benefit for whichever island(s) they have to live/study/work on.

      The current answer, paradoxically, requires me to work hard and work smart, not for material luxuries and transient high status, but at being frugal, resourceful and versatile.
      Yes, starting right here near the Equator, which so many of us keep complaining and criticising about.

      And no, I'm not worried about pampering my wife or spoiling our kids along the way.
      I'm already grateful that it's already wired in them, since they were born, to be just as self-punishing against our human limitations! ;-P

      I also want to continue reaching out to as many of you as I can, if I can give my little bit of support.

      All I ask in return is that none forget we are the ones forced to be left behind, we also need courage and effort to face here everyday.

    7. Well, it's really true. Auckland is just a city of 1.5 million people and I don't find the crowd we see in Singapore. Then again, the country is so big, so there's a lot of places for people to go during the weekends.

      In my view, to minimise it, it would be better for your children to grow older first but it would means they have to go through the pressure cooker education system.

      I think self-punishing is not the right way for things to go about. No one in their right mind will go punish themselves. It'll be better if an independent mindset be nurtured, whether is it in thinking or life skills, it's very important but could be easily miss out given how spoonfed the society can get at times.

      Working smart is definitively the right way. Like Ahm mentioned, migrating is no small matter, thus it's best to prepare it beforehand, to put yourself in the best possible situation when you make the big move.


    8. Hi J, thanks for responding again.

      Geographically, do you think Wellington is any safer than Auckland (from volcanic activity, tsunamis, storms)?
      One of the reasons I was looking at the capital was because of its theoretically central location, seemingly safer as it is cradled by land all around.

      For our boys to grow older, it's not pressure cooker education that worries us most, but national service liabilities.
      Our older one crosses the first criticial age of 13 in a mere few years, and he is not suited for formal schooling and much social interaction.
      A bigger place like NZ might just give him the space to really find himself.

      Perhaps I use 'self-punish' too strongly. :-)
      Maybe I was poking fun at the majority opposite here, those who are so self-indulgent materially and in terms of status. :-)
      Actually, we enjoy modestly living within our means, learning whatever life skills we can.

      So while emotionally we might be ready to live elsewhere, financially we're far behind.
      Therefore the 'over-'concern with being frugal.

      Thank you again for encouraging us much, while you go through your challenges in NZ.
      I look forward with you, to the time when you find what you really want to and enjoy doing there, and have really settled into the new life!

    9. Hmmmm... I think the moment you choose NZ, you are stepping into the Pacific Ring of Fire region, if something big really happen in this part of the world, it don't really matter much where you are. Do note that Wellington is on the south end of North Island, it's not cradled by land all around. In fact, it has a habour too where you can take a boat to South Island.

      If you asked me, personally I fear the pressure cooker education more than national service. The quote that national service turn boys to men does hold truth in some sense. I did mine with pride and I learnt a lot during my 2+ years. What pissed me off was the fact that the govt is not doing enough for us who spend 2 years doing the duty of protecting the country. In fact, at the rate it's going, sooner or later it'll be pointless for Singaporean sons to even do it when the country is being sold off from the inside. I'm not sure what are the worries you have over national service but above are my feelings.

      Financially, it's going to be a pain for any migration attempt, that's why if your mind is set on this big decision, the more time you have to prepared before the big move, the better it would be and of course would entail some personal sacrifices along the way.

      Thanks for your kind words. Still in the midst of my job search and it still looks like it's heading no where at the moment but I have to persist on. I did enjoy myself over the Easter weekend with a short trip to Taupo. :-)


    10. Thank you for replying, J.
      Continuing to wish you steady progress, as you return refreshed from Taupo.

  2. sad to read this post
    i remmebr many many years ago when i was younger, i always thought that the 2nd greatest person on earth after my father was LKY (don't laugh, i was young then). but now... hiazzz
    it's not only the younger generations that are leaving or planning to leave
    i am in my 40s, and half of my friends are planning their retirement in other countries....

  3. I am curious whether MJ arrived in Oz with a holiday working visa in order to find a job. Otherwise, it would be very difficult to land a job unless as a kitchen-hand in a Chinese restaurant and grossly underpaid. I hope you are aware that there is a class of visa known as working holiday visa for those between 18 to 30 y.o. With this visa, one can stay in Oz for 12 months and work is allowed. With my limited knowledge, this visa is meant to help those industries which have difficulty hiring locals to hire workers, e.g. Fruit orchards, farms, restaurants, etc. See:

    1. Singaporeans are actually not eligible to apply for the Ozzie holiday working visa as there is only a handful of countries that are in the program.

    2. yes you're right QMJ, i checked that out too. damn disappointing. if only we did qualify for it, there'd be many more people trying for it

  4. Hi asingaporeanson,

    I chance upon your blog a few days back. I have been reading through it with great interest and admiration of your courage.

    You blog have provided me with great motivation. I quited my job in Feb and came to Perth alone to seek a future for the family. Leaving my wife and kid back in Singapore. It took us 7 years to gain that 'sticker' on our passport. Although alone and jobless in a foreign land, however the stories from our fellow Singaporeans are truely amazing. There is always 'light at the end of the tunnel'. All the best to MJ & J. 加油!


    1. You are jobless but not alone. Anytime you are ready to meet up with me, tell me. How's the situation over there and where are you staying? it's rare to have one coming to Perth, so do keep in contact if you want.

      You have the courage like Patrick, who came alone. I wouldn't have done it without my wife with me. So allow me to toast you for that when the day comes.

    2. Hi asingaporeanson,

      I am doing fine so far and is currently living in the Como area. It always great to meet-up with like-minded Singaporeans. I leave my email address as below.

      Drop me a mail when your free, we can exchange contact. Talk to you soon!

    3. Thanks a lot Edmund. Currently it's still early days for me, so it's still hard to say how it'll turn out for me.


  5. I think that so many people are disillusioned with the way the local politics are run and that so many people have lost faith in the government is really a sad state of affairs for Singapore.

    If they are at all concerned about the drain of young local talent out the country, it's high time the ruling party gets out of its ivory tower and start doing something to retain these people, as these are the very people one would want to keep to look after the country in future.

    Well, I, too am planning the big move soon.

    1. I don't think the local government plans to retain local talent at all. I'm in my mid 20s, also planning my move.

    2. Keep you for what? You go, thousands of foreigners waiting to replace you with lesser complains.

    3. so we do what others in foreign countries do- get out. they come to sg, we go to...well aus/nz? hopefully? this is a norm nowadays.

    4. You guys are not alone. We have been inundated with emails from Sg. at home seeking information to get out, since we started our "kongsi" to offer our help and networking to new migrants and those wanting to join us. Like our now "infamous" Singaporeanson in Perth is helping and giving honest information, warts and all of his experiences as a migrant. There are other Sg who have come forward to give a hand to other Sg in Brisbane Melbourne and Adelaide.

  6. this post makes me think alot, i also wont want to stay in singapore, cause i will never get to retire....

    ah pooh

  7. Firstly, my hearty congrats to J for making it to NZ, and all the best to his settling down with home and career.

    J has already arrived at where our young family of 2 boys cannot begin to prepare to go, even before the critical age of 13.

    I look forward to reading of J's adventures, if he or any of you in the know can share the blog link when it comes up.

    Thank you!

  8. If I'm a scholar in SGP I won't think of migrating.Too bad I'm a 'farmer'. Being a farmer in australia is ok but not SGP. haha.

    Just trying my luck to get a job in australia although it seem hopeless as expected. Anyway, I'm enjoying my road trip which very few singaporeans will even think about it. Probably it's only once in my lifetime.

    The policies are indeed making many singaporeans ki siao. I'm sure there are many more J and me. Wish J all the best in securing a job.

    1. mj, keep going forward man. you're a real inspiration to us all. i was just thinking about doing the same thing and then voila! asingaporeanson intros your journey to us. its like watching discovery channel with you as the subject. ever watch truman show? well, he's a world wide inspiration. i got some leave and $$ to go with. might try what you did too. although i would have suggested maybe going to Seek or Gumtree to secure some interviews first before heading down.

      You do have access to internet right? have you tried searching daily for openings near your current location? i reckon its easier to attend interviews since you drive also. anws, keep us posted man. take care

    2. I always wanted to be a farmer too! It won't be long now, before I'll make my first mud brick for my dream house in my little farm.hehe

    3. Thanks MJ. Was surprised to read about your plan on this blog since it's so similar to me though I chose to go NZ where Singaporeans can apply for a working holiday.

      And you are right, we are definitively doing things majority of the singaporeans won't have the chance to do or experience. There's so much I want to do in nz too. hahaha..

      Good luck in your job search too and hopefully there's a chance to meet u all in the future.


    4. J and MJ, if you guys didn't succeed the first time round and have to return to sg to 'reorg'.Do meet up and tcss. I'm sure you'll have something in common to chat about.

      You 2 are probably 1-2 years age apart the most. Should hit it off well.

      Good luck J, I'll reply yr email tonight as I am caught up these 2 nights.

    5. biglife6, what I did is highly not recommended unless you are sure your education and experience can get you a job. My field of study is different from my work experience, so it's hard to get a job here. I got a few rejection emails already.

      Uncle Phil, believe it or not, I rather be a farmer in AU than a scholar in SGP.

      J, I may go NZ with their silver fern visa. I can't qualify for working holiday as I graduate more than 3 years ago. So maybe can meet you there.

    6. Ahhh.. The silver fern visa. So 27 April will be an impt date for you. If you are coming over to NZ, just let me know, I'll be glad to meet you or as Nix say, if things don't go well, we can always meet back in Singapore.


  9. Actually, I don't really feel that it's crazy though... lolx...!!! Because it's part of my plan too.. Planning to apply for a working holiday visa then search for a permanent job there... hahaha.. my mom nearly faint when I told her that I'm planning to go alone..

    Before I actually came to Singapore... I was planning to go Australia first. But because of my family members.. I came to singapore first. Hopefully I am able to make them get used to the life without me for a long period...

  10. For both J ande MJ, wish you guys best of luck to find what you are looking for.

    Personally, I won't encourage other Sgpreans to do like wise, as such actions really need deep pockets to sustain your livelihood overseas and at the end of the day, there is a chance of not getting that visa.

    I would suggest that anyone who has the intention to migrate to do it the right way. Especially if age is on your side, go for a career change. Check out what is in demand and try to get a few years of work experience in that field. Reckon nursing is probably one of the options available. Apply for the PR and you'll get to enjoy all the family benefit income/rental assistance if you have a family and other benefits as well, medical and most importantly, the right to get a job.

    1. Yes, what Ahm says is very true. Our ways is definitely not recommended (although I still can work part-time or vacation jobs to earn my living expenses).

      Getting the right career experience will definitely help greatly. And as you mentioned a career change to the right career is a good start and the years u spend on gaining the work experience will also give u time to save up too.

      While nursing is one of the best career for migration (every countries in the world wants trained and experienced nurses), not everyone is suitable to be a nurse. Other possible career could be accounting and IT.


  11. this year prolly not the best yr to land on a job in australia. alot of companies are looking for end of financial year to decide if they should hire. many companies have freeze hiring in January this year

    The company i work for is a fairly large organisation with serveral business units n genere. We are making a profit as i write but they still insist to make many stff redunant. 500 factory workers are made redunant. 20 over executive technical stuff were retrench yesterday.

  12. Wah, i think it takes a lot of courage to head overseas alone to find jobs man.

    And i believe many young singaporeans in the twenties have the mindset to immigrate too if they have the chance. As for me, i would like to give things a go and look for a job in Australia after i graduate from my uni studies...

  17. Hello, I think your website might be having browser
    compatibility issues. When I look at your blog in Ie, it looks fine but when opening
    in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.

    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!

  18. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content
    so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful
    lot of text for only having 1 or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?
