Life+Work for Pinoy Architects in Singapore- kumusta ang buhay dun?

Post by onzki on Wed Nov 20, 2013 9:42 am

Hi to all cgpinoy with Singapore experience. I have future plans to move to SG, with one wife (also working) and one baby. In your shortest description:
1. Kumusta po ang buhay sa SG ng pinoy Architects? 
2. Madami bang good and long term opportunities (career growth)? 
3. Musta ang family life+work balance (time)? 
4. Money matters- in general, well-paid or poorly paid (savings)?

Maraming salamat po for sharing your personal opinion Smile

Hi Onzki, me and my wife are working here since last year. My son just visit here twice a month or if there's an opportunity.
1. Kumusta po ang buhay sa SG ng pinoy Architects? 

* Within that year of working experience here masyado mabilis, office- bahay- bahay- office. At first mahirap makipag- usap kase yun gamit nila is singlish/ british accent. Need mo pauli ulitin yun words para maintindihan ka nila. Minsan lumalabas na ikaw pa yun di marunong mag english. To make it short, okay naman dito especially pag nagamay mo na yun work. Need mo lang naman matutunan kung panu yun mga submissions at standards na ginagawa nila. Almost the same practice din dyan sa atin. Pinag- iba lang walang suhulan dito. hehehe
2. Madami bang good and long term opportunities (career growth)? 

* Madami naman especially kung makakuha ka na ng experience dito. Sila kase they're looking at your experience here, kahit na 10 years ka na working dyan sa atin mas prepared pa rin nila yun me experience dito. So, stepping stone mo is accept low salary then transfer ka na lang pagna- gained mo na yun experience na need mo. Sa ngayun medyo pahirapan mag- apply kase naghigpit na naman yun MOM (Ministry of Manpower) sa mga foreigner. Dami kase nagrereklamo na local kase feeling nila inaagaw ng mga foreigner yun work nila. Kaya kung me opportunity kahit low salary grab mo na lang muna at least pwede ka magstay ng matagal while waiting for good opps. Meron ka kase 1 month to stay lang dito, and for me it's not enough to look for good company na kaya magbigay ng mataas na salary except if your recommended by your friends here. Mas gusto nila yun recommended.
3. Musta ang family life+work balance (time)? 

* Mas madami work kesa sa social life. Your lucky kung makakahanap ka ng company na walang saturday. Konti lang din holiday dito. Kung sa pinas sangkaterba ang holiday dito once in a blue moon ika nga.
4. Money matters- in general, well-paid or poorly paid (savings)?


* Well- paid naman if you compare sa atin, ang kaso yun cost of living masyado mahal esp. kung family kayo pupunta dito. Let say S$2k- 2.5k ang starting mo dito makakaipon ka naman. Wag ka lang pupunta sa mga I.T. show at sigurado mapapabili ka ng gadget dahil mura dito. As in bagsak presyo. Yun rent ng isang hdb room dito is from s$350- 600 (Xphp34). Kung pareho kayo me work dito ng wife mo dapat me neto kayo at least s$4k-5k a month.


Last words, kayang kaya naman basta me disiplina, tyaga at determinasyon ka. Focus on your goal. Goodluck!!!Wink
