Application to work in Singapore

Some excerpts from the 14 page application (+copy of my college diploma + picture from the last 3 months + copy of passport + travel itinerary).


When/where was I born?

What is my race?

What is my religion? (Free Thinker is one of the 8 options but atheist and agnostic are not)

How much money do I make at my current and all previous jobs?

Am I divorced/married/separated/single/widowed?

What is my spouse’s name and birthday?

Have I ever been deported from any country?


Plus I get to sign that I won’t use drugs, take part in any political activity or take part in any activity that would make me an “undesirable”.

You learn something new everyday

Today for instance, I learned how to manually operate my business class seat/bed because the fancy buttons wouldn't work.

For the record, next time you fly with me and I pull the arm rest off or start feeling around under the foot rest, I know what I'm doing.  I promise.  :)

Unfortunate lesson of the week:

When encouraging Holmes to drive past HC, at high speed, through the mud, for the expressed purpose of splashing HC’s car; make sure HC’s window isn’t open first.

After 15 minutes of cleaning mud off the steering wheel, dash, windshield (inside), and HC himself; he was remarkably good natured about it though.
