SETA gathering!

Woot woot~ the last SETA gathering was ~ i dunno when~ last year? Anyway it has been too long. So it was great to meet up today with long lost secondary school friends~ WY,WP,CL and MF. Through the gossiping sessions i found out tht 80% of those who are still in JB are working in Singapore and about half have already obtained PR status. Some of them are more or less inclined to become a PR as thts the only way they will get their CPF (something like EPF). Talk about brain drain~ with the 2.27 conversion rate it is definitely worth working in Singapore as it is just a causeway away. While some have become accustomed to the traveling, some find it too tiresome and have found places to stay. At S$1500 to rent a flat,the cost of living is definitely high. Yet all in all its worth it~ lots of job opportunities, high pay, safe and clean environment~~yada yada and the list goes on. I dun want to sound unpatriotic but we can certainly take a leaf out of Singapore's book if we want to advance further as a nation. The only grouse that most of my friends have though is how snobbish Singaporeans can be especially towards Malaysian. Oh well u can't win it all.

So we ate lunch at Tang's Tea House (which serves food other than tea as well) in City Square.

WP and WY caught unawares~

Lots of laughter as we pose like we did in sec school. We can't help it~Johor ppl love 'cute'
