Oops .... there he goes again :lol: :D :) sweetgazebo ('sour shack' might be a better fit) - contrary to what you seem to think, this (nor any other) thread is not about you. Can you just take your noise somewhere else so the thread can continue being about the thread without your attention-starved ...

the indians encountered in my last work place were both lacking in talent and never on time for work in addition to always being 'absent' from the desk just about 5 times a day (b'fast, lunch, post lunch, tea, pre dinner) After my last experience at a financial institution where 95% of them are indi...

After my last experience at a financial institution where 95% of them are indians honestly i find the quality of their work that of 3rd world level - how can there be competition? :? ......locals should take the competition as a challenge instead because at some point there will always be someone el...

I don't intend to comment further on your statement below but likewise i don't know you either and have never had the nerve to judge people, like you do. Maybe you too should look into the mirror before you come to an easy conclusion based on threads that you read here, on people you don't know. don...

This lady quoted in this thread was actually offered a job when the invitation letter was extended to her (i believe it's with MAS and that too, 3 times her US salary) and she has never worked in Singapore before (tho she did study JC on a full scholarship years ago). As for her real reason in decli...

don't see the need to look like 'The Terminator' to show who's bigger or stronger. Upon reflection, i realised the french bitch gave me that 'what's your problem' look when she first budge her way through causing me to almost dropped my phone. I could have told her off on the spot but stopped short ...

I posted a comment here and it's a fact whether you choose to believe it or not. it's true she's paid $30k / month in the US and it's true she received a letter fr the Singapore government - was that an arrogant welcome?! anyway, i will leave you to...

(i won't be arguing on this point as i have seen and know). fools are those who were in the know but choose to question it #4 - read my post again. i meant cheap as in cheap labour Wh...
