Actually, in addition to tiktok being a troll/wacko it's pretty apparent he is also a racist also.
It might be a waste of time but let me explain where I'm coming from.

As a caucasian male who has worked in several countries, I recognize that I would not be where I am with a different background. Immigration officers give me just a little leeway. Some interviewers hold some biases or preconceptions. Managers may have felt more comfortable with me. Some clients feel I have more "gravitas". And so on in thousands of subtle ways that shape a career path.

It happens the world over and it's disgusting and counter-productive.
I not troll/wacko/spammer.
Me no expat. Me foreigner.

Doesn't work like that in Singapore. Maybe that's why you are having a problem. Your gravitas doesn't exist here. Ang Moh no special privilege anymore, Wasn't much 30 years ago either. Your track record on here is disgusting and counter-productive as well, but it doesn't stop you, even though you know it.

Everyone wants to believe they're the architect of their own destiny :) Um, but who said I have a problem with my career. I'm doing much better than my skillset merits, that's my point.

Are you still a trailing spouse on a DP?

Sure, but I don't need a work permit for what I do.

Don't forget to file your taxes here though. Surely you don't want IRAS down your throat. SE has already pointed that out to you.

Hello
My friend wants to bring his wife to Singapore and he is on spass, his wife is offered a job in Singapore with a very small company and they want to pay her in Indian Rupees Salary for first 2 months and later after looking at her performance they will give her salary equivalent to SGD. I see this is something fishy here also I doubt which pass they can offer to her on this kind of arrangement.

Need some advice.

Sounds like it's an Indian employer and we all know that they are more than willing to screw anybody, even their own countrymen. Yes, it's fishy unless she is going to be offered either a WP or S pass but even then, she has to have her salary quoted in SG dollars to MOM, unless they are planning on employing here illegally for the first two months. If she does and gets caught, she will be locked up and when finally released she will be deported and banned from Singapore, full stop. So, in my view, this is a no go.
