Dear Dr. Sing,

It was really nice hearing from you! Hope you had a wonderful Chinese New Year too.

After going through a series of events over the past few years, I am actually now studying Accountancy at Nanyang Technological University. My initial intention of studying Veterinary Science didn’t realise due to financial constraints as I was not awarded the AVA scholarship 4 years ago. However, if you require pictures from Glasgow, I can seek permission from a friend of mine who is in her fourth year there now.

Regards,

EMAIL REPLY FROM DR SING DATED MAR 4, 2013

Thank you for reply. Accountants make much more money than vets generally, from my past years of observing the profession as financial management is the heart of corporations, not veterinary medicine and surgery. Therefore you can be as wealthy as you want if you know how to manage your own accounting firm and network or become the CEO or chairman of a big company.

I may visit Glasgow Vet College and if your friend can provide some images (e.g. in her facebook), please let me know.

As for you, much depends on you after graduation and working around 5 years and saving up money, you can still study veterinary medicine if the passion is still there. I know of at least 2 Singaporean ladies doing it. Best wishes again.

Best wishes.
