Expats in Heartland Jobs

Post by Faith Z » Mon, 21 Aug 2017 7:09 pm

Hello everyone. I'm a reporter and I'm hoping to profile an expat in an interesting job, especially with a local, heartland twist just like Mr Laskaris http://www.straitstimes.com/lifestyle/f ... ian-seller.

Do you know of anyone in such a job? We have written about a South African driving a bus.

Would you know of anyone who runs a hawker stall selling Singaporean fare? Or someone who sells vegetables at the wet market? A librarian working in a heartland neighbourhood? A train driver?

Could you message me or write a comment here?

Thank you so much!

Totally agreed.

I seen lot of expats around my house, Doing general maintenance work !

Or did OP mean "rich" Expats ?

Or did he mean a exotic expat ?

Or an exotic import - i.e. Citizen ?

Confusion abounds.

Do the PRC Expat bus drivers don't count ?

Hello! Thanks for your reply. When you say general maintenance work do you mean plumbing, cleaning, landscaping? Can I check which are you live in? So I can go down and speak to these workers?:) is it possible to pm me? thank you so very much!

Oh the irony.

Did you miss the sarcasm ?

I meant, in your book, Expat means only those Fair Skinned, or Exotic ?

Do South Asian Workers count ?
