3 days ago,I did an event for Citibank wealth management department.It was an informal get together dinner event.The venue is the multi purpose hall @ Tampines Community Club,it definitely is a shocker to me.Throughout my years in the events industry,this is the 1st time I heard of  bank holding their event @ a community club.It seems more like a Malay wedding than a Citibank event to me.So SOP we setup the sound and wait for the event to commence.From the 250 to 300 attendees,90% were Indians,with a handful of pinoys around as well at least 95% were foreigners.The head of the department was a middle age chinese man who is definitely isn’t local.He is a from Hong Kong,the accent which he spoke in confirm my suspection.These are white collars jobs and it is sad to see not even one of our local guys are in this department.WTF?I knew all along foreign talent is a problem for years but I didn’t know the impact was so great to such extent.A graduate who just come out hot and fresh from varsity is  most likely to be paid S$2000 to S$2500 depending on what he major in.This pay scale is not inclusive of those in specialise degrees like Engineering,Medicine and Law.With this amount of money used to hire a freshie with totally no experience,employers now have a choice for a foreign talent who has perhaps multiple degrees and a few years of working experience under his belt and maybe a high flyer in his native country.You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure out why jobs are given to foreign talent instead of our home-grown talent.I am seriously thinking how can we ever complete for jobs with these high qualified foreign talent.I can understand why foreign workers are hired for jobs like cleaners,dish washers and construction workers,that is acceptable to me because our local guys don’t wanna do such its fine get the foreigners to do it.I support this and have no objections.However why give the white-collar jobs to foreigners as well,these are the jobs our guys wanna do and it’s simply not fair for employers to import foreign talent to fill such positions,I am sure our local boys have the skills,academic achievements and qualifications as well to take on such jobs.It is not easy for these foreign talents to come here and work as well,not only they are cheaper to hire,they must be the cream of the crop to be able to make it here.Now that will cause a lot of jobs lost to foreigners.Something needs to be done to rectify this situation,the government seriously need to review their foreign talent policy,if not it is a matter of time our home-grown boys will be driven to their graves.


SR  Nathan is nothing but a crony and a by product of the PAP,he will never ever exercise his right as a President for the interest and benefit of the citizens,why need to when he is paid as much Prime Minister,Lee Hsien Loong.An obsence pay package of around 4 million dollars.Ex foreign minister George Yeo said before the general elections that he will not run for presidency,however after a sound defeat and a kick in the ass by the worker’s party.He lost his seat in the parliament as well as his minister’s salary,that is a lot to lose.Now he says he wants to run for president,as well as PAP old guard and back bencher Tan Cheng Bock.It is all a conspiracy to propel someone from the PAP to become a president,although the position itself is largely ceremonial,the president still wields a great amount of power and can enquire on the government on national issues.Of course the PAP want their guy on top shut his mouth,take his pay and don’t bother with what the government is doing.Ex president and Deputy Prime Minister Ong Teng Chong is one of the best president Singapore has ever had,he enquire with the government with regards to the national reserves and was being denied by the goverment.In the end,after serving his term he fell ill with cancer and pass away.I have a lot of respect for President Ong for all he has done for us and what did the government do to him?No even a fucking state funeral for a man who serve his country for more than half of his life thanks to Lee Kuan Yew.I believe in the law of cause and effect,there will come one day Lee Kuan Yew will surely die in a horrible manner and his soul will be subjected to all sorts of torture and suffering for the next few billion years in the depths of  hell.It is not just one or two good man he broke,there are so many of them that I can’t even count.
