    Although the world is money driven but somethings just cannot be weight by money or status.

    That's life of a S'porean.... not just for camera stuffs. U go try and find a girl in S'pore that wouldn't look down on your pay. Lets face it... I work to get paid... not for respect or to fulfill service to the public.

    Btw... we just got some rumors from HQ.... Night Shift personal will now be 'rope-in' to patrol the depot at night.... Now not only am I driving train for a living... but also on guard duty.... all on the same amount of pay

    If I had study harder when I was young.... Now... to late already

    But to be honest.... the job isn't too bad, beside its low pay . I've survived 3 recession since 1998 without a fear of losing my job (Public Transportation sector is kind of recession proof )... The hours is long and I work 7 kind of Shift.... burn most Weekend & Holidays. But once you get used to it.... weekend and holidays will meant little to you.

    And being a lowly worker.... I can take long leave in a row with out my boss making noise about who to replace me while I'm gone.

    Sounds like a company that I know. Must be the idea of some scholars in the SMRT management.
