Lol 😂.

Wd40, I happened to read a couple of threads yesterday over at edmw. The main thread was about some local Indian who was asked some idiotic questions by a cabby because he was with his Singaporean Chinese wife. It immediately went down the crap hole (or the edmw if you will) and transformed into sheekh-ah bashing. There's this guy called ericopprasso or something. Is that you by any chance?

Note that I'm not registered there.... Just killing time while waiting at the covid jab place.
Lol, no I dont participate in EDMW, I am mostly in the Money Mind forum :)
What I like about EDMW is they are open, pure, honest. I mean if you have one on one conversations with people, they will tell you honestly what they feel. EDMW is like that. Thats why I like them. Rest of the forums are all pretentious.

The responses of this particular thread can go straight away to linked In, lol, as if people are putting up a farce! But I know this forum of expats is full of super achievers. I am more like that that EDMW people who would slack all day if my boss is not watching and guess what WFH allows exactly that :)

Slumming it, wd40!

Undoubtedly the government embeds a real-time probe into EDMW's stream of consciousness feed, to calibrate their Foresight-to-Strategy (F2S) scenario planning models.

So if you ever feel compelled to participate "over there", at least advocate on our behalf!

But seriously, this damn pandemic with its prolonged nature of continued isolation, sure has opened up time to spin idle thoughts & activities.

I think there shd be a balance . Occasional WFH or Flexi timing like go to office at 11/12 after meetings is usually the case for me. But to totally not go to Work is detrimental.

How about Home Schooling. Smart people like Elon Musk homeschool their kids. Why not let kids study at home ? I think its cuz despite being lame as a parent or employee, we want kids to be better or different.

Most people in tech would like a balance of WFH and time in office.
Most kids prefer in person schooling over home schooling. It’s the social interaction and hands on learning that many of them crave, an experience that simply cannot be replicated at home.

I agree, kids absolutely need to go to school.

The last couple of weeks out of school have been torture for my daughter, having to revise on her own and being stripped of social interaction has been tough.

You've been arrested? Law Society of Singapore can provide referrals.
You want an International School job? School website or http://www.ISS.edu
Your rugrat needs a School? Avoid for profit schools
You need Tax advice? Ask a CPA
You ran away without doing NS? Shame on you!

It’s not all bad, she’s going back to school in less than a week. Sad thing is she has exams as soon as she gets back.
