How many hours do you work a day in Singapore? It seems like most of the people are still working after 8pm...What is the average number of work hours a day?

Perhaps a few more options a bit lower down the scale 6-8, 4-6 less than 4, especially for those of us who spend far too much time here :D

Agreed! Officially, I am to work 8 hours. But more often than not, I am effectively working for around 6 hours. :)

and maybe for some days, it could stretch into 16 hours... so there you go :)

Then why do I work all the time.

Dammit I knew I was inefficient and a burden on my company, wait a sec whilst I open my office window and through myself onto the warm pavement below...

BTW When we are efficcient others are not and if you have enough ineffiecency the effecient must work harder to make up for them (thats my story and I am sticking to it anyhow)

To anyone reading this thread please participate in the survey as I am also interested to know lah.
