Here’s to the makings of a work pass holder in Singapore. This writing is intended to answer queries from friends and fellows who envisioned themselves of working in Singapore anytime sooner.

What is an Employment or Work Pass?

Work Pass is like Working Visa in some other countries and is issued to foreign professionals, skilled and unskilled or semi-skilled foreign workers to legally allow them to work and stay in Singapore. It is by way of securing the country from unwanted aliens aside from getting taxes from workers. Work Passes are divided into different categories namely E-Pass, S-Pass, PEP and Work Permit. The E-Pass (Employment Pass) is given to professionals who will earn a fixed monthly salary of more than S$2800, and have certified qualifications and years of related experience. S-Pass is granted to mid-level skilled foreigners who will earn a fixed monthly salary of at least S$2000 and are degree or diploma holders with at least a couple years of experience. PEP (Personalised Employment Pass) is a pass for high earner professionals with a minimum last drawn salary from previous job of at least S$8000. It is issued to certain existing E-Pass holders and overseas foreign professionals with that range of salaries.

When times like submission deadlines in work are way too far from the clock, procrastinating takes place in an instant and so here I am trying to have fun with the situation. I play then I blog. This time I’m introducing you to my old-school-is-cool prank masterpiece since I was doing this one way way back in primary school. It may be known for the ages but still and was scares my victims to the very point they’ll hit their highest note when they scream. The poor dupe's usual impression would be like that of holding a hysterical lizard going wild out of the unfold paper. Once you engage to this prank, be sure your prey is secured from breaking fragile objects most especially when they're eating and choose the ones you knew who could handle the shocks. More to that, it is necessary to play some amount of acting (which I am very used to) depending on the idea you conceived on what’s the letter has to do with them. Mine, is an invitation letter seeking their presence in the occasion. 
This is how I do it. First, you prepare the materials (1) a string of tire wire or big paper clip (2) rubber band (3) bottle corrugated caps like that of an 8oz coke or pepsi or a strip of plastic which is like that of the shampoo containers (4) paper (better with envelop for grand deceiving appeal) (5) cutter. Second, bend the tie wire or clip to a parabolic form and bend again both ends leaving a space to fit the rubber band. Third, flatten the bottle cap by a use of a hammer or simply by stone, then put two holes just like the button holes in it through knocking the sharps of the nail. Other alternative is cutting a small rectangle piece of a plastic strip. Fourth, cut the rubber band and put through the cap's or pastic's hole and join both ends by tying. Then, install it in both ends of the bent tire wire or clip. Fifth, fold the paper into 3 halves and fold again both end portions suiting the flipper to monumental stillness. Then, its showtime!
In my elementary years, I got caught with my Mathematics teacher passing around the letter prank to numbers of classmates near my perimeter. She emphatically mentioned my name in the midst of her lecture and immediately come to my desk and confiscated the latter. She kept and ignored it for the time being because the class is still running. But minutes later she cut short the lecture and gave us a seatwork exercise. In a while we hear her screaming that I was so scared to death because pretty sure she opened the letter. My knees shivered in fear that she might be calling my parents after exhausting too much on a sudden feeling of a bad surprise. Good thing I just ended up writing 1000 times in a pad of paper the phrase “I Promise I will not do it again.” In High School, it sets higher hype because I have more mischief partners spreading the freaky stuff coming out of the paper. It turns out that we find some tomboys and guys turned out screaming very gay. In College, I did not have time reviving the thoughts of it because I am busy playing noble. Thus, I cope up during the years of being a careerman. Below are videos of our victims all the way from Dubai soil. Most videos are taken during breaks at the workplace. More videos of our victims to follow soon.

Drag the play bar to start if it buffers.

Angel – Sarah Mclachlan Song Lyrics
Today, I was tagged by a note in Facebook from a dear friend and classmate of mine since year one in College. Reluctantly, I anticipated that the note is just a typical read from a newspaper but bang! I was mocked by the reality it pertains and I cannot contain it in the first 10 minutes after reading. I was thoughtful of the changes it will bring to her and her family whom I've known for years and they are one big straight devotee of Catholic faith.

Who are we to say we're in the right faith of Religion? We might not have tried understanding both sides of the coin. Most of us have grown under our parents' beliefs and acquired it without even bothering digging the truth and blindly deprived ourselves from the fact that there are so much out there in the wilderness of faith to consider. Quickly, I embraced the fact that no religion can save us, its the faith and good deeds that will lead us to eternal life. This one indeed is one good example of a so-called SOUL SEARCHING. All the best Chuy!

This is the tagged FB note.

It's a weekend and we're thinking of a good place to breathe some real and fresh air. As usual, what's new? we plan things 2 to 3 hours before take-off. But actually there's something new in our weekend routine, this week we have a new element in the house - the new Canon EOS 7D. Excited what we are going to look like in this semi-professional camera, we arrived agreeing on one location through one quick talk. After going last time at Henderson Waves Bridge and HSBC Treetop Walk, this time, we are going to visit the Labrador Nature Reserve. Again, it's a nature trip!

Pictures below are raw and are products of the first dry run of the Canon EOS 7D in execution of our Gadget trender friend and the owner- Giovanni Orly Capili. Hope you would mind dropping by sharing your expertise on unleashing stunning photos.
Casts/Housemates: Edenne, Sheng, Orly, Jay. Missing in action: Mildred and Ian

NACHO LIBRE- Jack Black singing Encarnacion.

When the fantasy has ended, and all the children are gone
Something good inside me, helps me to carry on.

I ate some bugs, I ate some grass, I use my hand to wipe my tears
to kiss your mouth, I break my vow, No, no, no, no, no, no way Jose!
Unless you want to, then we break our vows together!

Encarnaciyooohooooon, Encarnicihohohohoon, EncarniciyooooOOOon
durudi dururudiiii, Encarnacihohohehehown!

1 I’m totally a believer of God, believer of His existence and never at once I questioned that He is the creator of all except evil. But do you believe that God dictates each of mankind’s demise? If so, every death is according to God’s will regardless of how man died? What about the number of women who died of rape? a man who died of Murder? Assassination? Massacre? Is it His way of putting those kinds of an end in this world?

This is not by the way questioning God but questioning our religious notion to which assumptions are made. I believe there are answers from our great great philosophers out there and even ordinary people who analyzes life and its balance. What is your stand?

DILEMMA: iPad 2 vs. Playbook

Past my dilemma over which smartphone to acquire, I have made my pick last year  to a Storm 2 9520 Blackberry phone.  After several reviews in the Internet I find it more seducing for me.  Reasons why? (1) I just love the hardware (physical), it looks very professional and corporate for me. (2) The exclusiveness it brings to myself from the people in the place I am currently living and working. (3) I’ve got all my email accounts activated at one same time. (4) Camera is good, Audio is firm, Apps jived in with my interests. (5) It can get along with various computers to share and sync in with the files. BBM is phenomenal in sharing files from different places like mp3, videos and pictures in a maximum size of 6mb.  Lastly, it can never get me wrong with its Surepress  touchscreen.
