PMET used to earn $8500 relocated to Cambodia earning $4500/month but enjoying it

Hi Gilbert Sorry for late reply, I'm always flying around. My last drawn pay was roughly 8,500 SGD per month prior to my resignation. I am humbled by the interest, and I note some of the comments too. I think many people are more focused on how I defined my seniority in terms of rank, and how my lifestyle was like, and totally missed the [...]

MOM could not help airline crew dismissed due to a questionable harassment charge

Hi Gilbert, Thanks for giving me a listening ear. I agree that arbitration in workplace disputes should be done by an independent body, after all, it would ensure there are no interests, in areas where disputes may involve government-linked entities.
