I know that there may be better threads to post this but this thread happens to focus mainly on Malaysian Chinese applications so here it goes:

A good friend of mine had her PR application approved.
Malaysian Chinese
Single female, around my age :devil:
4 years of overall working experience (last 1 1/4 year in O&G)
Income in Singapore $5k plus
Working as analyst in O&G firm
Bachelor's degree from Malaysia in related field (graduated in 2008)
Arrived in Dec 2011 (after 3 1/2 years working in Malaysia), applied in Jul 2012 (7 months later), approved in Oct 2012 (3 months later).

Now here is another example.
Malaysian Chinese
Single male (30 years old)
Less than 4 months of working experience at time of application.
Income in Singapore $3k plus
Working as technical manager
PhD from Malaysia in related field (graduated in 2010)
Arrived in July 2010 (right after graduation), applied in Nov 2010 (4 months later), rejected in Jan 2011 (2 months later).
Not sure what the rejection letter said but I'm not surprised if he was advised to reapply in stipulated time.

So guys, enjoy. :P

That one's easy to see. In his case, PhD is great and he's the right flavour but just not here long enough. In her case, been here longer and right flavour AND potential brood mare. :devil:

Oh no, gramps. I was trying to draw the idea that salary (and probably work experience) is more important than qualifications (after race/nationality). I have edited my previous post to emphasise the time and duration.

Actually the only thing it clearly shows is how powerful is to be the right flavour. All the other factors are pretty much secondary. Just imagine any other group getting PR with such limited assets and residing time.

Congratulations to Naoki2012. One wonders whether there will be any ethnic Chinese left in Malaysia at this rate.

I have this feeling that ICA may just pull in too many Malaysian Chinese (like they got in too many Indians) and soon there may be a clamp down on them too.

The skew in demographics of higher ratio of Indians will get fixed very soon. I personally know several Indian PR families in my office who are leaving/left Singapore for good in the last 1 yr due to the increasing cost of living here. Many of them are those who never bought a HDB or are single PR holders. Coupled with the fact that they dont give aways PRs to Indians anymore, it wont take too long to see fewer and fewer Indian PRs in Singapore. But still it would take about 5-10 years for the demographics to get back to neutral.

The extremist faction of Malaysian ruling government will be happy anyway, after a few of them have been making public statements to media that:

1. They don't need the Malaysian Chinese and Malaysian Indians to vote them for the next GE to remain in power, and that;
2. They are, and will always be, immigrants in their eyes, never citizens. And that;
3. They ought to go back to China and India if they don't like/approve what they (extremist politicians) are doing.

I'm not making this up. Go to Youtube and google those keywords in Malay.

I think everybody knows that you are not making this up. This is kind of general knowledge, if you living in the region.

The ironic part is Malays too came from Indonesia and so they are also not Bhumiputra in the true sense. In fact the word Bhumpiputra is of Indian origin :)
I would very interested in learning the history of this region. Especially very interested in the Indian influence, there are some really old Hindu temples there like Batu caves and tells me Indians came to this place really long long time ago before the British started importing Indian workers.
Also the Indian influence in Thailand and Indonesia is really intriguing.
Most Indonesian names are Hindu names and very traditional at that.
Bangkok's international airport name is again so Indian, Suvarnabhumi(meaning Golden land :) )
Singapura is also Indian origin, btw :)

[OOT] To me, the most ironic part is that most of them in both groups (Malaysians and Indonesians) tried to "sever" this connection. But within the past several years, the Chinese groups are accepted bit by bit in Indonesia, even in politics. It's a good thing :mrgreen:

[BTT] Even if gahmen tries to pull out the Malaysian-Chinese from Malaysia, I wonder how it will boost the birth rate :P
