It's fun to work with me as I'm the only expats from Europe in this company
About my boss I won't comment
I know some very good malay or indian mechanics but the boss
doesn't want them. It's a part of chinese mentality saying we are better :mad:

Isn't it illegal to base selection on race in Singapore?

Illegal? No, it is not illegal. It's only recommended best practice that they don't. There are not any laws saying you cannot though. [-( Part of the problem here. Neither is their a minimum wage either. Welcome to Singapore. :?
