After I got my degree, I'll find professional work, and can then apply for PR under the PTS scheme, no problem. In fact, the govt offers foreign graduates PR status with the PTS scheme as soon as they graduate, like they did to my friend.

Why I want to be a PR NOW is only because I want to find work while I'm still studying. The only thing holding me back is the possibility of me being drafted to tekong :(

No first generation PRs do not have to do military service.

I find it ironic that you, a foreigner wants to be a Singapore citizen yet you refuse to take on your duties towards the countries in terms of military service.

That is just plain pathetic. You should stay Indonesian if you don't appreciate the priviledge of Singapore citizenship and defending Singapore.

Actually, I am beginning to see a strong resemblance to our troll of last week. His rapid proliferation of posts and their antagonistic bent have the same pong about them.
