INDIAN FTS GET DRUNK AT XMAS PARTY, INSULTS BOSS AND ASKS TO SLEEP WITH FEMALE COLLEAGUE

During our office christmas party, 2 of my Indian FT colleagues kept whacking the alcoholic drinks and drank alot of whiskey, tequila shots, beer and wine. Obviously they got drunk and cannot control and handle themselves after that. One of them went up to my boss and point middle finger and scold him stupid idiot. Another shameless one went up to my female colleague and said that he wants to sleep with her because she is pretty. When I heard it, I told my female colleague that she can report him to the police for sexual harrassment and she said that she will think about it. They will get into big trouble when they come back to office today. My boss already told us that he will be sacking the 2 of them because of their poor work performance and inappropriate behaviour.

PINOY: I WANT TO MOVE TO THAILAND AND STILL ENJOY SINGAPORE PR STATUS

I also still want to be Singapore PR and maintain (since I just renewed) the ability of me going in and out of Singapore for future business plans. Although, staying here means you must pay rental, get attached to expensive bills and cost of living. And I think even if I ask and plead my boss to increase my salary, I just think, I have reached to the point of the highest salary rate my career can offer. Not sure... but for me, the fast-paced life here is not something I dream of if I want to settle down with kids anytime soon.

ZENON: "FOREIGN DEGREES ARE GOLD WHILE LOCAL ONES ARE TRASH"

Plus I really do "like" how when students apply for local universities, they don't get what they want. Everyone seems to have stellar grades nowadays and there really is an issue of grade inflation. Often, a potential candidate is missed out simply because of "limited spaces". The candidates that are chosen are based on the shallow criteria of having good grades rather than passion. "Good" grades nowadays are nothing less than perfection. Schools are definitely sending out the message that "If you aren't perfect, don't bother applying."
