I would just like to point out that the gold rush is over in Singapore. Much harder to find a job now for foreigners.

That said, letting us know your skills, education and experience will help in given any advice.

Nope. Nonetheless, OP should provide a little more info ;)

OP directed this question specifically to filipino expats and hence none other than the filipino expats have the right to answer his/her query. Hence x9200's comment I guess.

The forum rules (and only those apply here!) are racially neutral and don't give the original poster the right to choose who can and who can't reply to his post.
I am also not Philippino.
Have a nice day!

I was sarcastic and venting out my anger at the OP's "qualified' query.

"Qualified query"? Could it not be much simpler? Could it not be that the OP might be under the impression that other Filipinos might have a story more congruous to the OP than the average white, ang mo, gweilo, Indian, or Malaysian Chinese?

Yes. This interpretation did cross my mind too. OP could have been more explicit about this in the query rather than being blunt about it. Unless the OP assumes that the filipino expats on this forum would be able to immediately empathize with this query and shoot out answers congruous to the same.
