I've been working in Singapore for almost three months now. I left my company in the Phils. (its a multi-national, above average salary, with car, etc.) bec. I think its about time to look for a new environment. Dami ngang nagtataka kung bakit pa ako umalis sa company ko eh samantalang ganda na raw ng kondisyon ko dun. I've been working in the Phils. for 8 yrs. already pero damn!, ang lakas ng pulitika lalo na sa mga mulit national companies. I felt I'm no longer growing career wise and technical wise. Although I had been very thankful to my former company dahil maski papano eh napadala ako sa US (where I earned a Multiple entry 10-year B1/B2 visa..maski papaano ok na..), went to different ASEAN countries, etc.

man, If you want to work here, I recommend it's good but it's tough at first. Medyo mga frank mga tao dito. Siyempre mas OK pa rin to work with fellow pinoys. Masuwerte mga kakilala ko dito at marami silang pinoy sa work nila, some of them even have pinoy as their immediate boss. In my case, wala, Im the only pinoy in the group..although sa ibang dept. merong mga pinoy but then walang masyadong interfaces ang mga dept. namin kaya minsan ko lang din sila makausap. Iba talaga yung mismong colleague mo eh pinoy. May kakampi maski papaano. Singapore companies are very service oriented. They want the customers to be satisfied always. Dapat listo ka dito.

Talking about the way of life and standard of living..normally pag bago ka dito..tendency mo is to compute or convert everything in pesos...a typical pagkain dito sa hawker centers (parang turo turo sa atin pero mas malinis at presentable) eh mga 4-5 dollars (convert mo sa pesos by multiplying 26+). Di ba mahal?...Tapos drinks mo pa na mga 1.20-1.50 ang price...Mahal din ang mga damit dito. Mas mura pa rin talaga sa HK at Pinas unless pag nag gragrand sale ang Giordano..mga old stock nila eh binebenta nila in gud condition...(halos pinoy lang nga ang nagpupunta..)

Typical mga pinoys dito eh nagsheshare ng bahay. Karamihan, may tatlong bedrooms. In our case, apat kami sa bahay. Three bedrooms. Yung mga ibang kakilala namin, umaabot sila ng pito hanggang 8 sa bahay which is not very convenient na...gusto kasi nilang makatipid eh...We live in a condominium in the outskirt (mga 30 mins. north of the city). We are paying 1,700.00 dollars per month. I am alone in my room kaya ang ambag ko eh 500 dollars. Yung isa na nasa master's bedroom eh 650 ang bayad tapos yung isang room na may 2 guys sharing, eh 550 ang bayad nila...if u will convert it...syaks...malamang isang bahay na sa pinas ang katapat ng nirerentahan kong room. Oks naman sa condos kasi maganda ang mga facilities. Buhay mayaman ka...may big swimming pools sa baba, tennis courts, sauna, jacuzzi, squash courts at gym....

Kung gusto mong makatipid...sa HDB ka muna tumira..marami na ring HDB na nagsusulputan na may mga magagandang amenities..pero yung mga luma at existing eh...wala...kung gusto mong mag swimming..at mag gym..you can always go to community centres nearby.2 dollars per entry...halos lahat ng place dito meron nun...very convenient...

Kung ako ikaw....come to Singapore and experience something new...oks ang transpo..very convenient..hindi namimili ng pasahero ang mga taxi drivers..hindi nagbabaha..hindi masyadong malakas ang ulan...wala kasing bagyo dito eh...wala ring mapanukso dito...they are also very fashionable here..kaya maski outrageous ang dating mo..di ka nila papansinin..to each his own...

sabihin mo lang sa akin kung magkano ang makukuha mo as salary and I will tell you kung Oks na yan para mabuhay ka dito ng matiwasay at makapag ipon...Ako balak ko kasi mga one to two year lang dito..stepping stone to US kung baga...

totoo yung fact about the cars here...ang mahal dito..yung typical na Honda City diyan eh mga 400,000 ata...dito...mga 1.5 million yun..x3 ang halaga..then ang mahal pa ng mga road taxes nila dito..registration, license, etc..kaya pag may tsiokt ka dito na bago...bigatin ka na...

CPF?..i think they already abolished this thing mga two yrs ago...hindi na applicable to sa mga foreign workers like us. Sayang nga eh..tskk..tskk...forced savings pa naman ito..hindi ko na naabutan ito..pero yung mga pinoy na nandito mga three yrs ago pa..naabutan nila ito at they are enjoying the benefits...
