Morale of Sinkie professionals

The displaced or retrenched PMETs are pretty sore that all their talents are wasted and many have to end up providing super butler taxi services to the maids and foreign workers. It will make their day if the foreign workers or maid screw them up for taking the wrong route to their destinations. It is so pathetic that some of them are graduates, from foreign universities, and spending thousands of their own money or their parents’ money to acquire their qualifications and working so hard for it. No words can described this shitty state of affair when so many so called FTs with suspicious or mediocre qualifications are gainfully employed and being served by these fallen local talents.

There is another pool of top local talents that are often by passed for the top jobs as there are always found lacking when compared to the FTs. Many of the plum jobs have gone to foreign talents who are not much better than them in qualifications except that they were foreigners or have worked in a foreign environment. Some have even lesser working experience than the locals they are going to boss around with.

This discrimination or insult against local top talents is being practised across all sectors. It is quite shameful really, that whenever a top position is available, they immediately look overseas for a candidate. The look inward is more cursory and a wishy washy formality. Just watch, they will be hunting for the next SMRT CEO from overseas again.

Maybe it is the right thing to do. The local talents know that they are not good enough and better that the new CEO is found quickly as some of these local jokers would have to act in that position knowing damn well that there are unfit or would never be good enough for it. So why waste their time acting and warming up the seat for a foreign talent to arrive?

Many would probably find it more useful to plan on how to angkat or curry the favour of the incoming CEOs and be content if treated well and not being screwed everyday. And this has been the norm and every of these top local talents seemed quite comfortable with the game. I am sure there is no morale problem about this group of top local talents who are destined to be just second best.

And some of these problems also faced Singaporean talents overseas because of the glass ceiling, that most respectable countries would want to put their locals in charge no matter how good the foreign talents are. Many countries discriminate positively in favour of their own talent.

Maybe this is the success formula for Singapore, where there is a conscious effort to look outside for talents. And it is not discrimination either but the right growth formula. Our ex coolie genes are degenerating and need to be bastardised with new and superior foreign genes for that extra oomph.

Wow, I should be surprised by your 1st class bigotry but really I'm not. Let me throw in elitism, snobbery and a healthy stock of "entitlement mentality", fondly known as the world owes me --insert value here-- eg. job, healthcare, education, cheap transport, cheap house,... it's a never-ending list.

All honest work has dignity to it. If you have to drive taxi or serve someone, what does it matter if that person is a maid or labourer?

Your boss doesn't OWE you a job. He can hire whoever he chooses, just as you can buy whatever brands you choose for your own reasons. That is the essence of CAPITALISM -- freedom, and meritocracy. Freedom to choose, and decide for yourself the best BANG for your BUCK

So if your boss let you go, chances are you didn't offer the best bang for his buck. Someone else did.

The meritocracy in capitalism ensures that in general, the people who deserve to win do. If you want to earn more, make what you do worth more.

Redbean IMO is very irresponsible in fanning flames of hatred. HOWEVER I do support free speech for many reasons, but one in particular : hateful speech is best put out into the open. If you're going to be a racist, bigoted, fake-victim asshole, please share so uncompassionate motherfuckers like me can have our fun.

Chua Chin Leng aka redbean said...

Dear me, is Matilah calling me a racist, bigoted, fake-victim asshole, just because I persisted in saying Singapore is for Singaporeans? Sinkies better stand up united to fight for their right in this country they called home and willing to die defending it.

In all my years in the corporate world, I tell you this, at the middle management level, many are appointed on merits. At the top, many political appointments. There are exceptions.

That is why people get frustrated and angry when they see obvious clowns running the show and being paid a mountain of gold. Matilah is so naive to think that all the FTs are really better than the sinkies and deserving. Please lah, many sinkies who worked in foreign owned companies are telling that these companies discriminate against sinkies and would deliberately hire their own kind. And they are doing it in Sinkie land. And Matilah insists that sinkie companies must hire on merits!

Back to the Singaporean first. As a Sinkie, I demand to have the first right of refusal when all things are equal. Sinkies must demand that this is their country. Otherwise, what is the shit about being citizens and defending this country only to be replaced by foreigners in jobs and living in little high quality public flats while foreigners buy up the private properties?

Don't be naive lah, matilah. But if you keep pushing your idea of meritocracy over citizenship, some daft sinkies will believe you too. They may even chase their pa and ma out of the country because they are not good enough.

matilah_S_admits_He's_a_Motherfecker said...

Red Bean, this one I have to agree with my namesake above. Sinkies have been sooooo molly cuddled that they have lost the ability to fight for themselves. Our coolie forefathers fought tooth and nail to gain a living... today , those very sinkie descendants only know how to KPKB ... when it comes to the crunch , still run back to pappy and vote for the safe option. M-S is right , there may be an element of stockholm syndrome within the very psyche of sinkies ... well .. at least the 60% of sinkies. Sink Sank Sunk.

Anonymous said...

MS's opinion on meritocray for meritocracy sake is very dangerous. The daft sinkies may believe him without thinking.

Some will kick out father and mother and sell out the country to foreingers who are able to con them into believing the fake degrees are real.

Matilah_Singapura said...

Err.. What "rights" are you talking about? I've asked you this before and you have yet to show what these so-called "rights" are.

I think you're pulling a fast one. There are no such "rights".

Chua Chin Leng aka redbean said...

Sinkies are not molly coddly for nothing. They have been hammered to shape to behave like sheep, and would sheepishly move from one patch of grass to another. All it needs is a few sheep dogs to do the job.

Sinkies, yes, need to stand up for their rights as citizens. Matilah, if the sinkies did not have rights as citizens, why called themselves citizens?

One important question to ponder before the country is sold by the assholes.

Does a country exist for the people... or the people exist for the country?

Anonymous said...

M_S - there's one "right" -> the right of abode as a citizen. Surely this is a right , as a citizen of Sinkiepoore , no ?

Matilah_Singapura said...

Don't worry about the spectre of "selfishness" in meritocracy lah. First prove that you're worthy of playing a good game, instead of finding excuses for staying the LOSERS you are
You don't want to win, and then when you don't, you blame the "greed" of someones else. Man, what an asshole you are.

You have ZERO content in your character. Perhaps it is only right that you be replaced by a more worthwhile FOREIGNER. :-))

@anon - here. knock yourself out!

Every father is a motherfucker. PURE LOGIC lah!

Anonymous said...

Ok , this one you win. I will not use that namesake from now on. You logic is stunning. But logic /= inteliigence. A robot can generate logical argument but only a human can understand the PAIN of a fellow sinkie... well, at least the remaining 40%.

Chua Chin Leng aka redbean said...

Anon 10:00, you agree Matilah's opinion is logic? It is a mechanical equation of 1+1=2. In life, in the running of a country, 1+1 does not equal 2.

Applying Matilah's opinion, 50% of sinkies would deserve to starve or go jobless. And best, replaced by half baked FTs that are no better than them.

Is this racism or bigotry?

How many think this MRT CEO is a super foreign talent and no sinkie is better than her to do the job?

There is no such right. Redbean "invented" this right and based elaborate arguments on it. Just like religion :-)

Wah, chow chee bye redbean. You cannot win the argument fair and sqaure, you have to resort to distorting my opinions?

For shame, sir!

Looks like your all too logical mind does not comprehend figures of speech. That is a logical conclusion, no? You feck wit.

Chua Chin Leng aka redbean said...

Hi Anon 10:12, ok, point taken.

Matilah is such a humble person. He does not impose his views and opinion on anyone. He only stuffs it down into people's throat: )

By shouting and screaming does not make an opinion becomes a truth. The logic of science and the logic of social science which is more an art are world's apart.


That is why Capitalism will fail and so will Communism and so will Meritocrazy. We are human beans, not digits or square or round pegs.

Matilah_Singapura said...

Again that fucker redbean distorts simply to win a few kachang puteh points.

I don't shove my opinion at anyone. Don't like what I write or who I am? Fuck you. Just ignore me, you dumb cunt.

anon 1023

Just go and educate yourself man. You are an embarrassment. Oh...and fuck you too! ;-)

Chua Chin Leng aka redbean said...

There he goes again. When he is not winning an argument, he will resort to his trump card, vulgarity, to chase everyone away.

So he wins the argument. Uniquely Matilah.

Well done mate: )

Matilah_Singapura said...

Again redbean distorts...hey, please lah your standards are dropping.

What you call "vulagrity" is not my trump card.

It is my calling card.

Fuck you, in your choice of the many motherfucking smelly orifices in your cunty fucked being. Fuck fuck fuck!

Red Bean , ever heard of Tourettes Syndrome. M_S has features of it, without swearing he cannot connect parts of his brain together. Please understand that it is a neuropsychiatric disorder... but then horrr ... as a strong proponent of free speech as M_S touts frequently ... we should let him express himself freely.

Anonymous said...

Now, M_S go feck yourself silly by reaing up on Tourettes Syndrome. You sad fuck.

Chua Chin Leng aka redbean said...

I like the way you put it, anon. He doesn't know that he has a problem. Poor chap.

Matilah_Singapura said...

Like I said, you dumb fuck anons better go and educate yourself -- especially in science.

Tourettes is a manifested in speech -- i.e. vocalisations, (having to do with not in writing. Why? because it is neurological and has to do with the motor circuits firing in such a way it "by passes" conscious awareness.

OTOH, writing requires concious awareness therefore a neurological condition like Tourettes is not possible.

Fuck you, dumb motherfuckers. Go and get a DECENT education instead of embarrassing yourselves as ignorant LOSERS

Matilah_Singapura said...

Oh please redbean, save your fake motherfucking compassion for some of the dead shits you so champion.

Oh sorry...was tat sarcasm....Shit...I nearly missed it ..it was sooooo subtle.

Fuck you!

Anonymous said...

There is no such thing as meritocracy, not in Sinkapoor or anywhere else. Every one uses some one else to go one up, sometimes by fair, legitimate means but more often by foul means.

Anonymous said...

The reality is that one has to be in the right place , the right time an the right connections. sine time immemorial. Connections connections Connections. "merit" is for those outside the inner circle. Won't yu wake up my poor sinkies?? This is life ! Cest La Vie ! Saddest thing is that even if pappy gets booted out... the human condition will always remain the same... bigfish eat small fish , small fish eat algae. Sink sank sunk

Matilah_Singapura said...

Finally, somethng I can agree with.

The people get the govt they deserve -- doesn't have to be the PAP, or the WP, DP, or the Pee Pee Kaka Party...the govt is from the same "kampung" as the people.

Connections? Hell yeah. Although we are all individuals, we are also social animals. capitalism and meritocracy work on connections. If you do not have connections, chances are you will be in a state of poverty -- on many levels -- physical, economic, social, psychological ...

> bigfish eat small fish , small fish eat algae. <

Yep. That's living systems in a nut shell. One species has to kill another to keep going. so much for " the sanctity of life" (bullshit)

the human condition will always remain the same

The "default" will be the same -- i.e. that one is born into a hostile world. However, there is a chance one can attempt to improve one's lot. No guarantees...but if you don't try, you won't increase your probability of "success" (whatever that means).

I wouldn't put all Singaporeans (I detest the word "sinkies") in the same boat.

My Linked In circle (for example) are mostly doing alright. So far no one I know personally is complaining about "foreigners" and the so-called (exaggeration!) "invasion".

Chua Chin Leng aka redbean said...

I can never imagine seeing Matilah so entangled and confused with his own logic. For a person who does not believe in a mind but a brain is talking about consciousness.

For a person who kept harping about meritocracy, now he is talking about connections. CONNECTION is not meritocracy.

By the way, I am not championing for any dead shit. I am just saying Singaporeans deserve to be treated better in their own country and no one should sell out the sinkies. This is the only piece of rock that the sinkies can claim as home. No foreigners should be allowed to kick the sinkies out of their homes.

Oh I know what's coming. This piece of rock does not belong to sinkies. It is an artificial construct.

Matilah_Singapura said...

It seems you are the one confused redbean. So go easy wagging that accusatory finger of yours. Fuck you.

In another thread I explain very clearly my position on "consciousness".

The idea of a "mind" is created by the brain. Agree or not? I don't really care.

All I know is I'm CLEAR on my position. I don't claim to be "right", but I am clear.

Matilah_Singapura said...

Matilah: On consciousness

Chua Chin Leng aka redbean said...

I explain it in the above thread. Oh the brain creates the mind, not generates, my error. Why is it that there are many living brains but cannot create consciousness?

And matilah swears again. I seem to be pushing all the right button this morning.

Anonymous said...

Matilah_S , care to explain why you detest term "Sinkie" ? It is a word that exactyl describes the predicament we singaporeans are in. can't handle the truth ? sinkes -> Sink .... sank ... sunk

Anonymous said...

as a reader of quite some time, i found the comments on this blog were a lot more interesting and varied when matilah stopped commenting for a (too brief) period.

vulgarities were at a minimum too. so were twisted logic and constant repetition of the same point/s. it's pretty boring - and sad - having a bully boy strutting his endless nonsense on what is an interesting blog.

matilah though is rather like many singaporeans - he gets upset when pple don't agree with him or cant understand his badly expressed arguments or train of thought. he resorts to vulgarities when pple shoot down his arguments. he is unable to have a proper debate. he is also unable to admit when he is wrong.

at first i thought, well he's just trying to show sporeans up for what they really are. but this series of comments of his highlight what kind of people many singaporeans have become as a result of years of high-handed PAP govt - small people with small minds. sad.

Anonymous said...

i forgot to mention two points in my last post - i do agree with matilah on two points, which he repeats ad nauseum:
1. that sporeans deserve the govt they complain about as a bunch of them voted this govt in for whatever reason. and i'v heard quite a few reasons.
2. singaporeans are wimps, too scared or unwilling to try and change things themselves. they would rather whine.

how rulebound and unthinking we have become, how money-minded we are, has been clearly underscored by the recent train breakdowns - when the man who broke the window for air was told he'd dun wrong; and that annct to cabbies abt the bizness "opportunity".

if matilah is as brilliant as he pretends to be, he would find other, more interesting ways of making those points and would not resort to vulgarities either.

Anonymous said...

Told you , Matilah has a variant form of Tourettes ..... he needs to swear till blind before his toughts can be strung together.

Chua Chin Leng aka redbean said...

Hi Anon 1:58,

You hit the nail on its head. But you can expect Matilah's standard reply on the way. Don't take him seriously when he is coping with his problem. But he will soon calm down and be his normal self.

He brought up the name of Jekyll and Hyde. A Freudian slip I supposed. And I know that when he is his better self bloggers enjoy his arguments.

I must remind him to go for treatment. Okay he won't like that and would accuse me of playing psychiatrist again. He will never admit his problem.

Chua Chin Leng aka redbean said...

Anon 2:21, your diagnosis is quite accurate.

There is currently no cure for Tourettes syndrome. But for M_S a frontal lobotomy may be of some help.

Hey M_S, that is the crux of the problem. You have not the foggiest idea of how miserable you are; just like a mad person has no idea he is insane.
