Although I don’t live in Singapore, I’m very much a patriot (even though I do bash my country every now and then..oops..).
I’m very appreciative of what my country offers: stability, low unemployment rate, safety among many others that I may have taken for granted. I may not like the stressful environment and the rat race Singapore has but I am assured that she is constantly making changes to improve that.
Setting up businesses in Singapore is very attractive with its high stability, low political changes, efficiency and friendly tax breaks. In turn, creating new jobs within the country. I’d say in exchange of high operation costs, Singapore is still very much the country to do business in and with.
I am grateful that my country has given countless of opportunities to me. Equal opportunity employment regardless of race, language, religion and sexes. Not deprive of jobs just because I’m not of a certain race or because I’m female. And hopefully, I can say that I am not deprived of equal job opportunity due to age when I decided that I had enough of freelancing and go back to regular workforce one day.
