Mad scientist,

In summary, I share my experiences and you guys said that I'm wrong, I do not have data, facts, figures and I will mislead others.So, where is freedom of speech?

We can organize a coffee session, it will save all the hassle :)

Amigo, I have colleagues from all over the world...Korean, Malaysian, Indian, PRC, Indonesian, Taiwanese etc. I do not see any problems in them getting their approval. Majority of them started with employment pass and submit their application 1year after working. Most of the people, I would say 90% ...

Out of the 8, half applied their ownself. 2 of them, their spouse are already PR. Instead of going under their spouse, they applied their own under PTS. The other 2 applied o...

Hi Amigo, I myself have been reading this forum for a while and in fact I have this concern initially. But as I've mentioned, fellow colleagues and friends have been applying. Married, with kids and they apply ownself without including their family. They got their approval in 2-3 months time. I do n...

Hi Lynx, Ill-conceived? First if all, I did not say I'm a Malaysian. Please do not assume. If you trace back to my posting, I only seek clarification on fees and also the need to supply documents of family members if they are not in the application. Unfortunately, negative remarks and cold water has...

zzm9980, Are you saying there's racism in this country? SMS, If you still remember, I'm asking on whether there's a fee that needs to be paid during PR application. This leads to a big hoo ha on one applying ownself vs in a family unit. Also, on the waiting period time e.g 2 years before lodgement e...

I'm surprised that you guys come back with so much comments and criticism. I'm okay with that and open to criticism. SMS, there's no point debating. It will continue to ding dong for a while I guess. I guess you're the "hot" type of person. My personal advice is relax and accept criticism....
