My advice to a Filipino vet from a middle-income family. She couldnt' find a vet tech job or a waitress job in Singapore on a recent visit. She had sprained her shoulders and back and left limb having been a medical transcriptist for past 7 years as it paid S$1,000/mth compared to vet job and wanted to do some work without typing. Singapore has tightened its rules and so approvals are very difficult.
EMAIL TO DR SING DATED JUL 17, 2012
Hello Dr. Sing,
Eileen here...I just want to express my utmost gratitude for all your words of wisdom yesterday. Maybe I still need time to do a bit of internalizing to figure out what I really want to do. You are right, I really am confused about what career move I should make. I have booked a ticket going back to the Philippines to clear my head and get a better perspective. Thank you so much for the chance of experience. Learning is quite priceless.
Thank you and good luck. Life is never easy for most people who want to be rich. There must be a passion and a compassion in such person and lots of personal sacrifices (health, personal, friends, family) if they want to be really rich.
