My friend, is a malaysian. She works here and recently, her sister came over for a tour. Since I also bore of working, took leave on last night as I working shift. In the end, I accompany her sister to shop at bugis.
We pass by some shops, selling cheap shirt but the sale person not helpful, we didn't buy but she will get it for her relative. We went to SLS, not her ideal place for shopping but I did my own. Then we pass OG, she saw branded, want to buy but since not my $, I also bochap, haha!
Passed by those small shops at bugis street and she didn't bother to take a LOOK!!! Then we went to Seiyu. She can shop n brought tons of things. Want all branded one, no mercy!
My friend told me that she spend 2k from her, she heart pain liao. That's why some ppl can have branded cost they spending other $. For me, as long can use, branded or not, not impt.
Only Sony device mostly, haha!
Now Express and Special AP school become one. So SAP become less Branded.

branded schools or not, its up to the individual. i was from a neighbourhood primary school, moved on to a neighbourhood secondary school barely skimming pass the express point requirment.
4 years in a school were fights were common and the DM wasnt feared didnt harm me too badly, i ended up in a neighbourhood Jc where i am doing year 1.
the school does play a part, however the individual matters more.
and i do notice that students from branded schools seems to be alot more concerned about image, about whether they can get into a JC and such and being top dog.i may be genralising but i have had friendss who moved on from primary to high end secondary schools and the student population there seems to be obsessed with getting to a top JC and scoring As
branded or not, its the way you carry yourself, cause at the end of the day, people tend to notice YOU first, than your uniform
i know of someone, starting pay 5k, got posted to shanghai.
when ask which school, he said "acsi"
no surprises here as the company paying him is his friend's dad's.
my point? you guys can just whine about "neighbourhood school" being AS GOOD as what you all call "branded"schools? Fine, do not bother sending your childed to any branded the school, let him go some neighbourhood school, then see if your child will be so lucky to have a "study" attitude in that sort of company. OR you can send him into a good primary school,
at least got stepping stone into a good secondary school and see the MUCH higher possibility he has that study mentality for your self.Furthermore, he gets to mix with teh right company which may help him in the futher.
Many of today younger or young adults could do what they want as they are not worry of their basic need... their parents had left behind an amount which allow them to live without worry.
No money no food no shelter and no passion
Which camera would you consider as branded?
back to the subject matter. branded schools. lately, some key personalities were seen celebrating their old schools. so, you decide. another, president's scholar award for father, then and daughter, now.
