Pixabay If you’ve ever felt you’re practically working till you die, you might be right – according to science. A recent research report from online home rental company Spotahome ranked 89 global cities by key health factors such as life expectancy, work life balance, and days of annual leave. And while Singapore came out as the city with the world’s second highest life expectancy, researchers explained that it lost the top spot to Tokyo solely because of its poor annual leave numbers. The country came in dead last out of 89 cities for vacation leave, meaning people from every other city – including Hong Kong, New York and Seoul – had more vacation days on average. While statistics were generally taken from the UBS Global Cities Ranking 2018, a spokesman explained to Business Insider that Spotahome used Singapore’s state-mandated 7 days minimum annual leave as its data point. The researchers acknowledged that Singaporeans get between 7 to 14 days annual leave – depending on an employee’s years of experience – but this number was still “low compared to other countries” and could have a “negative impact on overall life expectancy”. The highest scorer for annual leave was the Saudi Arabian capital of Riyadh, with 37 vacation days.

    Leave home without your wallet

    My experience in past 2 days where one of the day i forgot to bring my wallet out. Day 1 - with wallet but never get to use cash - Went to the physio at NUH, after the session i went to make payment, counter nurse told me 'cashless please'. - Going to watch movie with wife, so i make booking via phone apps and pay through Masterpass. - Took a grab to orchard. - Still have an hour to kill while waiting for wife, went to a cafe for coffee, place order and took out cash, the staff point to the signboard 'cashless payment ONLY'. Day 2 - without wallet (i left it in my wife's bag when we were watching movie) - Didn't notice i dun have my wallet until i reach office bus stop, my ezlink card was behind my phone try to act like i have a NFC sim card . - Panic for 2min thinking how to survive for the day, walk into Starbucks which i have the Starbucks app in my phone, breakfast settled. - Come lunch time, dun want to eat Starbucks again, heng i stored a credit card in Samsung Pay. walk to Hans and pay through Samsung Pay. - Dinner time met up with wife, went into a Korean cafe and they told us to scan the QR code on the table where you place order to making payment all via the phone!!?? i input my card number detail (i actually have those info in my phone but each info was hide in different apps). So i manage to survive 2 days without cash (wallet) for medical, transport, meals, movie, and shopping and thank god my phone battery can last whole day

    Rant..... Pointless Leave

    Have you guys reach a point where sometimes u feel taking leave is wasting your life away? More for people who has family (kids) where your life evolves around them. When you take leave and your wife did not take and you have to clear leave. Your good friends all have their own families and work so it's really yourself on your leave days. Pretty depressing... Rotting away at home and not travelling.

  10. Dear forumers, I am planning to resign from my current company soon. I intend to offset my earned leave (30 days) to offset against my notice period of one month. This is allowed under MOM's rules; however, I don't get paid for my leave, and I can immediately start work with my new employer on the next day. I have sought advice from many friends; some say serve your notice, some say use your leave to offset. I have a very tense relationship with my manager and I don't wish to serve the notice period; indirectly, by using my leave to offset, I am working for the company for free for one month, by not cashing in my leave if I serve the notice period. What would you do? Thanks.

    Annual Leave Optimizer 2016

    Time to plan those annual leave wisely, starting from Chinese New Year. *Posted the Malaysia one. Please refer to below calendar for SG Calendar. Whoops.
  13. Hi guys, Some of you have responded to my previous post of asking what what is the allowed number of stays in Taiwan and Japan with no visa. As it turn out now, the other company prefer that I quit and join them full time in Japan. So I'm now contemplating if I should join them for a couple of reasons - I liked the job there - Pay wise is not too bad, about 20% more than my current salary, inclusive of employer portion of CPF contribution. Apartment is provided. - I don't like my work here. Being in IT professional, I find myself stagnating here.... On the other hand, - I will need to be stationed in Japan. They proposed to allow me to go back for 2 weeks every 10 weeks but I am requesting to allow me to come back for 2 weeks every 6 weeks. I still have kids in primary school. - Not young anymore. Coming to 40. I had been through such experience 5 years ago but that time, the company just allowed me to go back a week every 4 months and relationship with wife really strained. After a year, I had to quit and come back to look for another job. This time round, it was my wife who suggested why don't I go back to Japan to work since I like the work there and I wasn't happy here.... She was happy to see the improved arrangement on the better salary structure and more time allowed to come back to SG as I started discuss with the Japan counterpart.... So guys who had experience in going oversea to work without family. How do you guys cope?

    Menstruation leave?

    Yes. You heard me. We women SHOULD BE entitled to "menstruation leave." Hi bosses, if you happen to read my blog... Please do not misunderstand that I am targetted at you all or the company. I am writing in general. AWARE Singapore finds faults with the NSF's songs and whatsoever that has links to NSF and such. There is a REAL problem brewing here. AWARE SINGAPORE should fight for "menstruation leave"!!! I mean, come on, we have maternal leave and we have paternal leave and childcare leave but I really do think that menstruation leave is needed!!! I am sure there are a lot of female out there that suffers as much as me during THAT TIME OF THE MONTH and especially on the second day! You name it, we got it. - Stomach Cramps - Nausea - Weakness - Giddiness (Due to low blood) - Headache/Migraine (I HAVE IT EVERY MONTH AND ONLY PANADOL CAN CURE WHICH IS BAD CAUSE I SHOULD NOT HAVE TO RELY ON MEDS ALL THE TIME!) - Body Ache - Nipple Swelling Total discomfort apart from the fact that blood is leaving our body every other 30 minutes? And there is also the trouble of changing the stupid sanitary pad every 4-5 hours because it is extremely uncomfortable to wear a pad/tampon/whatsoever. Apart from that, we get urinal tract infection and other womanly problems so easily!!!!! AND AND AND the fact that our emotions are all haywired and the rest of the male population thinks we are mad because we either throw tantrums or cry randomly because we just cannot control our emotions?!!!!!! We have to endure labour and menses cramps and blood leaving us monthly and we hibernate babies for 9 freaking months.. I totally think that menstruation leave is damn reasonable. It doesn't have to be a leave you know.. It could be a work-at-home day? Maybe just one day per month? We could still be productive at home though but we may just be scrunched up on our beds like a shrimp just fighting the cramps or maybe stuffing our faces with chocolate than having to deal with extra acne on our faces during our menstruation period. Before our menstruation comes, we have to deal with our extreme appetite and being judged by others as compulsive pigs!(I know I am exaggerating a little but I just want to get my point across here...) This is a serious issue that the female population faces. Some of us cannot even get out of our beds on mornings where the cramps are so bad or we either stain our beds/sofas when we lie/sit down. DO YOU KNOW HOW FRUSTRATING IT IS GUYS???? Seriously, we deserve menstruation leave. Thanks for reading and no, I am not having my period now. The agony was just over. This is a pictureless post... What did you expect? A photo of a pad? LOL. Jolene Snow *The author blogs at http://www.bitsandpiecesofsnow.blogspot.sg
  23. http://sg.finance.yahoo.com/news/know-time-leave-job-145135072.html How to Know It's Time to Leave Your Job By Alison Green | U.S.News & World Report LP – Wed, Feb 12, 2014 10:51 PM The job market has been tough for so long that it's easy to think that if you have a job, you should stay in it for as long as possible -- but that mindset isn't always right. Too many people stay in their jobs well beyond when they should, and that ends up holding them back in their careers and breeding unhappiness. Here are eight signs that it's time to think about moving on from your job. 1. You've been unhappy for months. Everyone goes through periods of discontent at work now and then, but if you've dreaded going to work for months and get anxious just thinking about your office, that's a sign that you should be looking at alternatives. 2. You haven't had a raise in three years. Not every company does annual raises anymore, and the economy has meant that some companies have frozen pay across the board. But after years of no pay increase, it's worth looking around at what other companies might offer you. (Make sure you've asked for a raise first though; if you haven't made the case for increased pay, leaving over the lack of it would be premature.) 3. Your boss hates you. Even if you like your work, having a boss who dislikes you usually means that you'd be better off moving on. Managers have an enormous amount of control over your career -- from what projects you get to what growth opportunities and recognition you're given. A boss who dislikes you can hold you back and have a long-term impact on your career. You're far better off working for someone who will champion you than thwart you. 4. When you tell your family and friends about your workplace, they're horrified. When you've been in a toxic and dysfunctional workplace for a long time, you can lose sight of how bad it is and it can even start to feel normal. If this has happened to you, it's a sign to get out. If you don't, you risk internalizing that dysfunction and taking bad habits with you to future jobs. 5. You can't remember the last time you felt challenged in your work. Sure, some people are happy to stay at a job that simply pays the bills. But if you're someone who wants to grow professionally and personally, then staying in a job that hasn't challenged you in a long time doesn't align with those plans. (This doesn't mean that you should leave at the first sign of boredom. Rather, this is about prolonged periods where you feel like you're stagnating and where you see no change in sight.) 6. You're receiving a lot more critical feedback in writing. If you're suddenly getting a slew of critical feedback in emails or memos, it's a sign your job could be in jeopardy. Many companies require written documentation of problems and warnings before an employee is let go, so a sudden increase of written feedback (when you didn't used to receive any) can be a sign that your boss is creating a paper trail to build a case for firing you. 7. You're on a formal performance improvement plan (PIP). PIPs are often the last thing that happens before you're fired. In theory, if you meet the terms of the plan, you'll preserve your job and be able to move forward. But in practice, by the time you're on one, it's often because things aren't working out and aren't likely to. That doesn't mean that PIPs never end in success; sometimes they do. But since they so often don't, it's smart to be job-searching meanwhile. 8. Your boss tells you. If your boss says things like, "I need to see significant improvement" or "this could get you fired," she's not kidding. Too often, people hear feedback like this but don't believe they would really be let go -- and then are shocked when they're suddenly out of a job. If your boss is telling you directly that things are serious, believe it -- and start job searching.

  25. SQ pai tan liao... Will this lead to another clash between the pilots association & the management? From CNA: http://www.channelnewsasia.com/stories/afp...1246152/1/.html SIA asks pilots to volunteer for unpaid leave Posted:05 January 20131305 hrs SINGAPORE: Singapore Airlines has asked its captains to volunteer for unpaid leave amid a global economic slowdown that has dented long-haul travel demand, the airline said Saturday. The move came nearly ayear after the company -- considered a bellwether for the full-service airline industry -- made asimilar offer to its first officers. The airline has also frozen its intake of cadet pilots as part of a slew of cost-cutting measures. "Singapore Airlines (SIA) began offering voluntary no-pay leave to first officers in March last year and subsequently to captains who expressed interest," company spokesman Nicholas Ionides said in a statement emailed to AFP. SIA has "a temporary surplus of pilots and are managing it through this scheme, which is entirely voluntary", Ionides said. He added that "the surplus of captains is limited and we regard it as temporary". SIA has more than 2,400 pilots -- mostly captains and first officers. The global financial crisis had led to excess capacity and slower growth that anticipated, Ionides said. "This voluntary scheme will enable us to address the short-term surplus, while at the same time provide staff with the opportunity to take leave for personal reasons should they wish to do so," he said. SIA saw its net profit in the first-half of the current fiscal year ending March fall by 30 per cent year-on-year, weigheddown by high fuel prices and weak demand in the travel and cargo markets. This followed a 69 per cent plunge in net profit in the carrier's financial year ended March 2012. - AFP/fa
