    Worth to be a Grab Driver now?

    But at end of the day where got energy left to enjoy the car, after driving for ten over hours ?
  2. I meant air steward. According to a friend who interviews them, there is no age limit, as the law prohibits age limitation. He also told me that there is a shortage of crew now.
  3. Nursing is another one that is not popular among locals. But the pay is not bad and job stable.
  4. You're our, next please. Lol. Mostly are parents who are also doctors. Or is it the other way, doctor parents don't enourage their children to become one ? I was told recently by a recruiter in a local airline, that many mid career professionals want to switch to become air crew. There was a doctor who applied and became one, for personal aspiration.
  5. Actually what does it take to be a doctor, academically smart, or a good heart ?

    Ok, if the discussion has to come to this, then I am out of here. Why take it so personal ? We are actually on the same side of wanting a better lives for our loved ones, and agree to disagree. I had met you at meet before and it was amicable. Anyway, I will leave it at that.

    Frankly, I don't know. You are quoting out of context. If this is the way to degrade a party, then the argument is already a loss.

    You asked why are they paid millions, and I explained the merits of paying the market worth. You asked why are there so many ministers to run a small country, i explained that the number of ministers should be judged by the achievement of the country, to know whether the number is too high or not. In the end, all of us wants a better lives, it is just a matter of different perspective. I shall rest my case.

    Managing a country is a massive task and as it impacts millions of lives. Therefore it is imperative that the most capable and credible helms the jobs. Now, such talent are few, and they command very high renumeration in their industry. If we are to pay the people who run the country lower than what they can get, how many will want to sacrifice their worth, for the sake of serving the people ? They have personal aspiration like any others. Say if you are earning $5mil yearly, will you want to serve and receive $500k ? No, in the end you either get people who are less capable on the job, or people who wants the renumeration as it is more than what they are getting. Sure, for much lesser salary, many man on the street will volunteer, but are they the best man for the job ? To get the best candidate, he has to be compensated fairly to attract them, not to mention having to sacrifice their privacy. To say that public servants should serve out of the heart is idealistic. True that Singapore is a small dot, but lets look at the past achievement and then judge how this million dollar salaried system has fared. Look at South Korea, another first world economy, their presidents were not paid as high, and Malaysia too. Their leaders have plundered billions of dollars, isn't that worst ? A billion is a thousand million and can pay a $2mil yearly salaried leader for 500 years. Not to forget that corruption propagates down the system, morphing into a corruption culture like cancer. Wouldn't a meritocracy system that pays market rate be better value in the long run ? I rest my case.

    The manipulation and changing of constitution for own party's advantage in political arena, is but a universal practise. It's a fact of life that life is never fair, and survival of the stronger prevails. Like in Malaysia , the then ruling BN party was really bad, and they were voted out by the majority . If Singapore government is really so bad, wouldn't they have been voted out long ago ? Or is it the majority of Singaporeans are stupid, given that they are the driving force behind our economic success, and are the ones facing the result of the good or bad governance ?

    Let us take a look at Taiwan and China. Taiwan economy has been stagnated for many years and regressed, while China economy has took off and blossomed. The difference is because Taiwan has two equal opposing parties and they are forever busy infighting politically. Malaysia is another example, the new government has been busy with power struggle and has not made any sound governance to date. That's why a one party government like China is beneficial to the stability and wholehearted governance, instead of having two parties. This is why Singapore has sailed through the challenges unscathed and remains strong and developed into a first world economy, with virtually little to no resources. Thailand is another good example, ever since the military took over and quelled the social unrest and protest, they have been seeing stable growth economically. These are testimonies to the benefits of political stability. Therefore, having witch hunt is detrimental to a country. To answer the question myself, no, even if opposition comes into power, there will inevitably have lapse and corruption and deaths. So we fire and hire , or we should take into account the totality of good and bad ?
