Anneteoh MS didn't call him anything! I think maybe you misunderstood the sentence! He was referring to the person who submitted the application. which I agree with.
The last thing he needed was being told he's a "bullshit." That was uncalled for but if he did pm you, it was not apparent in the posts.
Thanks KSL..... I hated it when someone shot me at the back without any apparent reason.
Exactly !! As what KSL has put it !! I was providing link for him to access himself. I did not even realise KSL was on to it. So I stop the comms. then you Anneteoh came in guns blazing !!
Anneteoh, I do this not to get Oscar or Emmy Award or just having fun to poke on someone's else predicament. Or to please anybody.
This is the problem with you. As I said B4 if you cared to read the post properly, then you will understand what it meant. I was not even referring to OP at all!!
This not the first time you misunderstood someone else post and started to draw sword for no apparent reason.
There are many things done via PM if the OP does not want to spill their gut in the open. This is understood by many of us here.
Unlike yourself I lived in SG for half of my life, I worked in the Ministries and the Military before. Whatever I know I will try my best to point to the right direction. I will even point out the error so that the OP can address it and take preventive measure. These is what I am trying to do all along. I do not hold grudge on you or anybody. If you can help out ...great !!! If you cannot, it does not matter. Someone else will pick up the slack. This is an open forum , nobody will hold you ransom .
But please for the sake of everyone, please read the post carefully before you trip and fall.
MS , I did not refer to you specifically but I felt it on my shoulders that I should encourage the guy who sounded so much in distress not to be put off by any rudeness. I am never fond of pointing a finger at anyone and I hate power trips. When I made a reading error before , I had explained it and it was as simple and uncomplicated as that - there's no big deal because nothing was meant to be personal. I assume you're an educated gentleman who believe in fairness. That's all I can say.
I appreciate your explanation. Ksl was most kind to point it out, but the word 'bullshit" was a singular, decontexualized ejective. I did not draw any conclusions or made any reference to you in particular. I don't even bother who it was directed at to be dead honest. I was simply concerned
for someone for whom things were going so wrong -and, knowing how opportunities for him might be rather limited in Malaysia, perhaps, I believe he needed comradeship and understanding.
Obviously, I noted how helpful you were and how grateful C was. I hope he'll be happy with his TEP aand PR. Likewise, if you read one of the threads in SS you would have noticed I had lauded your good deeds in that chorus.
I don't group myself with anyone as I'm an individual and I don't live in SG but I was partially schooled in SG and part of my family is there. As an ex Malayisan, and having lived in SG when I was in my teens, and had later did a stint out there, I do not feel a stranger to those shores, regardless of the distance or length of absence. I do believe in a more open world and a more enlightened society but it's not always so and people have to share their perceptions to make the world a better place. I have no respect for those who put others down or use foul language to show their arrogance and disrespect to Asians, including Asians themselves.
Making a protest or firing back in self defence is a different ball game altogether, as is a sense of humour or other literary devices.
I have no grudge against you or anyone who'd been nasty to me in the forum - everyone's got their own karma. My belief is life's short and everyone who's sincere, honest and kind should have my support whilst it's best to ignore those unashamed to show sheer rudeness or prejudice. I respond to those whose opinion I value and whose feelings I have no intention of hurting.
