  1. Agreed. Singaporean pmets really need to pull up our socks and learn how to be smarter.
  2. Isn't that the same accusation from PMETs when blue collared singaporeans complain about being flooded with cheap labor? General response from this forum (and the nation in general) has been to call the lesser educated lazy for wanting a handout and to ask them to get retrained. What's good for the goose is good for the gander.
  3. You know you can tell the outsourcing company how you want the work done when you are the client? You can even request they hire people in Singapore (can also specify singaporeans) and do it in Singapore if you are willing to pay.

    As I said, you need to research the seller. I bought loads of electronics from newegg and amazon overseas and it was fine.

    But it could have happened to anyone and not just queue cutters. Reminds me of a story I read in the papers previously. Some tree branch fell and impales the front passenger seat - thankfully the passenger had somehow decided to sit at the back that day and escaped. Passenger was interviewed and said that they will no longer sit in front

    You should make sure the seller is reliable. In this case, the seller is convergent who is the main distributor for several electronic brands in Singapore including Crucial. https://www.convergent.com.sg/ I think they are pretty safe - they will also be the ones supplying the SLS shops and even challenger.

    Crucial is by Micron. They are the 3rd largest RAM makers worldwide (after SK and Samsung) and 4th largest NAN makers worldwide. (after the koreans and toshiba/sandisk/WD). They have a few huge fabs in woodlands - if you are looking to support SG made goods, you would buy this over korean made stuff.
  8. No la. I don't trade.... This $$$ is from the US shares that I sold.
  9. got 5 of them in total? My bad.
  10. This must be a sad joke because everyone knows that these 3 brothers are all ex-generals and everyone also knows that these generals have cushy civil servant jobs waiting for them after they leave the service. Are we stupid enough to believe that his older brother (Ng Chee Khern isn't it?) was retenched and couldn't find a job for 2 whole years? BTW, where is Ng Chee Khern now? Surely not a perm sec in PMO's office and also the chairman of govtech? Fake news on wikipedia.
  11. Frankly I think the onus should be on the company to weed out such employees. We should move pass qualifications and look at competency. If a company is willing to waste money employing a loser then let them waste their money. They will soon go bankrupt. BTW, if these employees are less than stellar, how come they are still there and haven't been fired? Singapore PMETs need to step up our game if we can't even compete with such clowns then we deserve to be gone. Born in SG doesn't mean we deserve a silver spoon. Don't be lazy - worker harder and we will succeed.
  12. We should be moving towards a more flexible system.... not this.
  13. This is after they started tracking? Before when there was no tracking, no need to even come to work?
  14. Sure or not? He is worried about cheap labor flooding Singapore? or worried about Singaporeans moving our money to NZ and Aussieland?
  15. Wah. Then we can freely migrate to Australia and New Zealand?
