Congratulations! Though honestly I am more interested in how you managed to increase your salary from 3K to 10K+ within 4 years, but that'd be another topic altogether :wink:

It's simple, join a company that is barely surviving, work hard until the company turns extremely profitable.

See, THAT'S how you contribute to the Singapore Economy. Not by buying flats and having a big bank account, although the bank account and flats will automatically come the contribution to the economy.

Additionally, this also shows that working for an MNC isn't necessarily the best or better way to get PR or Citizenship.

Congratulations, yottabits. Looks like you had all your bits in the right places. ;-)

Then you shouldn't be here taking up bandwidth with hot air. All that is immaterial as they put all the current application numbers on ping pong balls in a giant drum. spin it around and eureka! We have a winner. Eazy-peazy. What is your next question. :roll:

Hi just want to give some reference or information that my PR application has been approved!
Profile: Indonesian Chinese, EP(P2) holder, PhD graduates scholar, apply in March 2014. I have submitted only my 6 months of payslip without any tax assessment, since I have only worked for 6 months after my graduation in Singapore prior my PR application. Before is always on student pass.

First submission was in 2011 and was rejected. Go back and read carefully. Unless you are Indonesian or Malaysian Chinese single female, unless you have a higher degree or heaps of experience you are not likely to be approved.

Which colour pen did you use to fill in the form? I think that might help my application.

[p.s. I'm being facetious, before anyone actually answers].
Be careful what you wish for
