    but that's not what i like. i tried reading some textbooks of princeton's list in both mech engineering and pure physics. the physics definitely made me read and read. the mech engineering just not my taste.

    but right now, my choices are between a physicist and an engineer. the pays are very greatly different. and my father gave me thise reality check. i will get married, i will have kids, and if your income isn't good enuf, you wun survive.

    if i was choosing between subjects with close pays, it would have been easier. but physicist and engineer..................

    engineering in singapore has been saturated... what kind of engineering you are going after? R&D or production.... drop your idea being an engineer... unless you going into R&D. The future market which i predict is service industry...

    Engineers being paid alot meh?

    then maybe I was in the wrong faculty of engineering lor.
    I thought i was just a highly educated work slave last time. Planning Engineer in name, but Bao kah liao Engineer for scope of work.

    Scope of work includes: quantity survey, design work, part time driver to ferry workers and clerk of works and clients around, buy kopi and tea, site office cleaner, telephone operator, part time roller tractor & bulldozer driver, draftperson, monthly/weekly/daily reports, site progress photographer & video grapher, consellor for workers, site clerk, photocopying lady, PR to entertain clients, ta bao food during OT for workers and foremen, stationeries purchaser, secretary to record minutes of meeting, planning engineer, subcontractors coordinator, scape goat for project manager and GM, etc ... no wonder last time I worked 13days week also can't finish work.

    Luckily being the only xiao mei mei on site, I get to enjoy some benefits (like free kopi or teh from the sub contractor uncles!) and dunnit to carry heavy stuffs.

    So like that Satay still want to be engineer?!?

    cool. just finished the online application for ntu.
    first choice: physics/ applied physics.
    second choice: mech engineering
    third: maths science

    but it doesn't really means that i have made up my choice, cos ntu more like a safety net in case i cannot enter or i cannot afford to go to my 1st choice uni, umich.

    hee hee, but my dream choice always still MIT, however, i guess i have to wait for postgrad to go there, should be easier.
