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.
Single female, around my age
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.
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.
