Waterway Point Shopping Mall Part 2 – May Edition

Frankly, I’ve been sick and tired of that eating spree BULLSHIT they repeated on me ever since the last month and things had gotten worse with that idiotic trash from my home wanting to land me into whatever troubles she’s caused. Not to mention, one technical trouble after another besides the non-technical ones like the charging cable’s end being pulled out of physical contact and my computer’s power adapter is going whiny and loose like it won’t make any electrical contact from the inside. Do I have future plans to get those things replaced?

One contrary was that I’ve been a customer of the shops I buy things from like I shouldn’t worry about anything bad stated above in the first place but things took for a worse on the second trip. Not only was the home renovation still on-going but also I feared that that troublemaker had the guts to manipulate my uncles and aunts to disrespect me again like the last time. Perhaps, my anxiety order over troubles still continues to this day. It’s like her presence has been making me feel uncomfortable ever since the Lunar New Year of this year and such ignorance about what I do and what I suffer from is not allowed.

Refusing to listen or do something, or perhaps not listening? BULLSHIT, THAT IS AN ON-GOING IGNORANCE ABOUT THE FACT THAT I’VE BEEN IGNORING THE OFFENDERS! And manipulating anyone to disrespect us is WRONG! It’s like you are not solving the attitude problem correctly! Can’t you even tell the difference between a slacker and a hater? You can identify the attitude weaknesses of a slacker but not a hater because you must know the offending problems that haunt them.

You know the worse part before the day of the trip, was the question issued to me by my uncle about if I had applied for jobs through CDAC? No, because that same idiotic troublemaker had started the launching chamber of the insult there somewhere at Tampines last year where I would be embarrassed at the workshop day elsewhere. That indicated when I felt insulted in my personality because of those embarrassing activities there. They never apply to me and that is that and that insult was launched at me from the place I was forced to register for a workshop at. But after advises from the WSG career coaches at Our Tampines Hub, it seemed that I could spare CDAC in one go so the troublemaker from my home whom I ranted about was to blame for such troublesome embarrassment in the first place.

Sure, that troublemaking garbage could deny all the offenses committed to me and take it that I was whining or some kind but ever since the renovation days, I already keep fearing of what is she up to. I also feared that complaining to the town council over this sort of bad behavior would worsen things for me as that would be considered a rash act.

Verizon AppFlash

Well, the internet privacy is gone in the US as people around the globe know about the news like this and especially that the US ISPs are planning on making their services pre-available with the cyber surveillance stuffs. Like, what kind of political selfishness is that anyway?

If you really care for freedom and know the situations that have been going around, there must be careful plannings and you must make sure that you plan things right but for US ISPs, it will be a challenge for the US citizens heavily concerned about them. Various tech companies have been concerned about the privacy, net neutrality and other stuffs outside of the tech field that try to affect their businesses negatively but if you’re going to talk shit about this sort of concern, perhaps, you’re borrowing that sort of political selfishness like you think that the tech companies are helping baddies and stuffs like that.

It seems that Verizon had started delivering their phones pre-loaded with the worthless search engine app, AppFlash, which is based on some existing search engine app. Currently, the phone to delivered with the app is LG K20 V and as of now, we don’t know if the other Android and IOS devices will be the next victims.

The reputation is bad enough for the US ISPs and even Google does the same sort of security compromise through its services like the Play Store that you’re better off with the third-party alternatives to it.

Speaking of alternatives, you can get the Cyanogenmod OSes on your Android devices when possible but they’re not the only workarounds for privacy protections. VPNs are useful for bypassing the data collection and censorship but the downside is that they can be used for viewing and obtaining foreign contents as if the regional information is made false on purpose. I don’t like falsifying personal information on many of the websites but if the websites don’t have international support, chances are that your phone numbers will be mistaken like it already happened to me during the Relay texting assignment I had last year and there won’t be a Country option in the form that supports full country list. Last suggestions for privacy protection are to make use of the secure web browsers like Tor and Tails OS but I don’t recommend them to you as they are too over-protective and going through various websites you visit everyday can be a problem that way.

So, privacy protection is an important thing but don’t use the purpose of this barrier for doing bad things as it will be penetrated through once you are found out.

Dance Music Formula Training Parts 2 & 3

So we’re back to where we left off and this free training lasts for a week on the day it began with Part 1. In part 2, I was taught the music structure like the Intro, Breakdown and the Verse and I was taught even more in part 3 where there are intros, breakdowns, verses, drops and even outros. The Breakdown portion has lesser instruments being played while the Drop portion has most of the instruments being played. The Verse portion is like having the standard amount of instruments.

Outside of the training, I had already heard tons of songs where there are parts of the music structure where there are less instruments being played with no drums at all. There are also Pad-type instruments in those portions of the structure as well but it depends on the song. Also, for the intro, the song starts off with the drums only, followed by the addition of the bass and other stuffs containing some repeated melody being moving on to the Verse section or something.

Bonuses so far from Parts 2 & 3:

  • Part 2: You get the pack from Digital DJ Tips although the Crash and Reverse Crash are missing in the pack. Also, you get to register at Loopmasters website and get a bonus pack for free. I guess that you can use it in any Digital Audio Workstation of your choice but you may want to read the Legal Terms and FAQ before you realize things quite late on what you do.
  • Part 3: A beginner assignment on arranging a song from Joey Santos, seriously? Why is it looking like you start the music production lesson with arranging/remixing a song first? What is so difficult about composing one?

Lastly, there will be a full priced version of the course which will arrive in your inbox if you had registered for free courses like this at Digital DJ Tips. Also, the song used from the training doesn’t seem to interest me enough to arrange it at this moment but I had arranged tons of songs prior to registering for this free training. It’s just that I’ve been doing music production in an unusual way probably due to using the demo version of FL Studio. Will I have plans to buy the Cubase product so that I can do music production in an usual way? I don’t know. There are already changes done to the shopping malls so I don’t know if the retail copy of a Cubase product is still sitting there or not?

The potential of music production from this training was quite low but at least, it taught me what music production was like for real. If I had joined Electronic Music Production Interest Group in my first year like 5 years ago instead of being in my second year, I wouldn’t have missed the music production lesson at all. I was able to learn DJing stuff during my first year of the Interest Group but that was quite all I learnt so far. What was I missing until last year was the theory information about how to get DJ gigs and it’s not as easy as I realized. Well, I guess that this free training wasn’t in vain this time, not like the DJ lesson I had during my interest groups days then. I guess that it was in vain either last this or this year but what was more in vain was the Diploma in other technical field I took.

Unexpected dinner at Our Tampines Hub (19 March)

The original plans were to proceed to the arcades at Century Square and then going to Tampines Mall to buy the USB HDD and USB Flash Drive but I unexpectedly was called for a dinner upon being spotted. The dinner took like estimated 2 hours or more and I eventually went to Tampines Mall to buy those things before going back.

Blog articles about the USB HDD and USB Flash Drive I bought can be seen on my main blog and needless to say after the day of the dinner, I already applied for more technical jobs at the time at Jobs Bank portal. Before the dinner stuff, I already realized on how bad the reputation is for CareerBuilder that I eventually thought of applying directly from the company website but needless to say, it was a harder method that way. Some of the sites don’t have the Career/Jobs/Join Team pages where you can directly apply there, some require the CV letter which I have never done before, some require the photograph along with other things as well as to send the email as the digital modern alternative to CV letter and some bring you to the external job portals. Why will they bring you to some external job portals you don’t know of when trying to apply directly like it’s beyond me? Also, job portals related to CareerBuilder carry over the reputations and technical errors from it as if I got bombarded with a bunch of unknown phone calls offering me the sales part ever since two years ago. You know, I should have known the goddamn solutions way earlier than last year like planning to apply directly from company’s websites as well as to apply from better job portals that have decent reputations. Securing a job thanks to CareerBuilder or any other related job portal is guarantee-less as I had recently seen the negative opinions about it like you don’t know if the one you’re offered turns out to be on a dark side or maybe a scam job.

So, DO NOT APPLY OR SECURE ANYTHING from CareerBuilder or any other job portal acquired by it! I don’t know if your future is going to be ruined or not because of that but I really hope that legal employment is the careful key this time.

Then, there’s the restaurant card called, Kopitiam Card, which you can use it to buy foods, deserts, snacks and even drinks from that any Kopitiam outlet. I have no idea how and where you can top it up though but I guess the concept is more or less the same as EZ-Link Card or perhaps the card you use at the arcades to insert coins. Do I have the intention to buy that in the future? I don’t know but it’s essential for the future.

One more reason for going out at that time was that there was a event booth area taking place at Our Tampines Hub and one of the booths caught me the attention in which there is a music production course in the previous day. Unfortunately, because of that dinner that took me 2 estimated hours or more, the event was already over by the time I finished it. Where else can I find music production courses locally?

And for the DJ/Producer stuff, that should be known by my DJ friends along with other DJ people I networked with offline and online so it could be an inconvenience telling my elder aunts and uncles about that. It’s not because the ambition of becoming a DJ is being frowned upon or something. It’s that not all parents and elders know stuffs like DJ, musician, rock bands and stuff. There are already cases where some DJs deny their parents’ rejection of them becoming DJs but what’s next after finding out that career, who knows?

Lastly, I already demanded the deactivation of my Jobscentral account recently as the damage done to the companies was already dark enough thanks to CareerBuilder being the source culprit of my complete delays. It was an epic confusion like you can’t tell if the phone call comes from the company you’ve applied from or something else but criticizing CareerBuilder and Jobscentral over CareerBuilder’s bad reputation during the interview is a risky idea in the first place.

Wikileaks – Vault7 leak

Again, the reports of the agency-related cybersecurity actions would take you back to the year 2013 when all the cyber-spying stuffs had been exposed by Edward Snowden. They were said to be illegal that it kept people and tech companies concerned that all those actions had been done ever since the past. We know the reason on why they did all this cyber surveillance on people in various countries through the victims’ devices but then, we had also seen actions taken by the tech companies in which many of the vulnerabilities had been patched as stated by Apple and Google.

Unfortunately, even with the encryption intact for Telegram, Signal and Whatsapp, there’s a chance that CIA can bypass it for data collection purposes. The Year Zero issue is not at the application level and it takes place in many devices and operating systems like routers, computers running Windows, Macintosh and Linux and even if the computers are offline, the data collection can still occur.

More and deep information can be found from the links below:

Unfortunately, for those using the outdated Android and IOS like me using Android 4.x series of OSes, chances are that not all vulnerabilities are patched and that the patches support the later OSes. Microsoft investigated this situation but may need more time and strategy to come up with more solutions.

Future updates

Okay, it may seem that download links on my blogs and YouTube video descriptions will be changed to my Onedrive source when the Public folder is starting to become non-public for Dropbox in March. Not to mention that I already started posting arrangements on my Soundcloud account like last year onwards. The aim of these Deconstruction Remixes/Mashups is simply the replacement of the stuffs from the original songs from Bemani franchise with the melody from the other songs from other sources. Besides the Bemani songs, there are also songs from the S***c franchise that follow the same suit as well due to the fact that it’s become a laughing stock to me after having discovered and gotten interested in playing S***c Runners on my Android. I managed to complete that although its Version 2.0 update screwed up that game in the stupidest way like decreased item usage duration for instance which might affect the progress in Story Mode.

The reason for coming up with those new kinds of arrangements is the amount of negative reputation Konami has caused among themselves ever since like 5 years ago or something like a bunch of Pachinko games based on the classic franchises we know of as well as the controversy that haunted Bemani franchise, like some crappy-ass remixes in some of the Bemani games we played, unoriginality in the cabinet design like Beatstream and Museca, as well as the controversial collaboration for music artists in standard parts of the games like those from IOSYS collaborating with those from Bemani for more weird-ass music I couldn’t tolerate in the first place. And if you’re a KAC finalist and you say that you cannot forgive Konami over all that shit stated above including the technical incompetences that haunted the event like they did with Sound Voltex for 4th KAC, I guess that you’ll be disqualified and barred from taking part in future championships.

Development of the Global Game Jam game has been on-going and the gameplay concept is still in a terrible shape. I don’t know if I can make an alternative gameplay like the racing platformer games like Angel Express, Kirby’s Gourmet Race, S***c Rivals series, etc. It may solve the problem that way over limited sprite assets taken from my 2015 jam-mates. Also, the development of Project Egg Rush which is a fan-made S***c  game I’ve been making as my answer to S***c Runners, had been on hold until the present time. It might be due to the fact that I don’t have the idea of the Endless Runner Stage Design on how things will be generated.

Lastly, while we went through the year 2016 successfully as if some of the calamity rumors that would take place were false, there will be lesser guarantees of living peacefully in the future probably due to political selfishness about the climate change which is more or less a man-made global threat as we know it but such selfishness about it takes it for a hoax or perhaps a complete nonsense that things are going for a downturn when it comes to future change. It had decreased by 30 seconds on the clock to 2 minutes 30 seconds left because of that and a huge trouble will come to us unless positive actions are taken to rewind that clock back. So the expectation for the future should involve more solar power although it will look like this kind of activity is done on daylight but balance is important.

One more thing, I might have gone back to being a gaming nerd as I should be after having discovered various game development-themed cartoon shows like New Game and Magic of Stella which aired last year. They might be what it takes to develop a new game although one of them is going towards indie-game development and it’s not that great from the story point of view due to various bullshits that ruined it. Not to mention that the Japanese cartoon shows and gaming as we know them have gone way too far like representing other animals, man-made military stuffs, man-made home properties, man-made electronics, etc. as human characters. It already opened door to hell of animal personification and fictional idols like there’s way too many shit going on. Not to mention that the behavior all because of those stuffs had been altered negatively and especially that people make up pretending/delusional relationship with fictional characters. I made a policy like that on my YouTube account against that bullshit and anyone caught doing it or regarding characters as wives/husbands/sisters/brothers/daughters/sons will be blocked. Even worse is that those kinds of filthy nerds don’t care for their professional future like they may as well get shut-in with nothing to do which is kind already bad in the first place since you will need a paid job for food, new items and even a new house to survive. Go play Recettear or something similar and you will know this important tip of future and survival. Oh, and putting DJ followed by your account name on the social media that contains gameplay videos of Beatmania IIDX/DJ Max/O2Jam or similar may regard you as a weeb-DJ/filthy-as DJ that you don’t deserve to play in a club although it’s already rare to find those kinds of DJs like that. A REAL DJ is a DJ who mixes music on the DJ set which may consist of a DJ controller or perhaps, 2 CDJs+DJ Mixer or even better, 2 Vinyls+DJ Mixer. This is the kind of DJ I want to see in the present time. You may think that I played those rhythm games too much but it doesn’t matter how much I played them, I never represent myself like that on my YouTube channel or social media unless you’re like DARQ, who happened to put my Beatmania IIDX GUI concept for Lunatic Rave 2 I designed as a wallpaper in his gameplay videos. No joke. He didn’t credit me for using that in his gameplay videos as a desktop wallpaper. So, NEVER INTRODUCE yourself using your DJ alias in your YouTube video UNLESS the video is about REAL DJing like you’re teaching new DJs, vlogging about your DJ gig or even giving advises.

Beatmania IIDX Sinobuz

Military, Medieval Fantasy, Train and of course, Ninja themes for a DJ simulation rhythm game like Beatmania IIDX are ABSOLUTELY OUT OF PLACE! How could Konami come up with such themes like that? It’s not amusing as the real DJs discover such bullshit themes like that and play Beatmania IIDX for the first time during the time the game is having those styles. Sure, it can make them look ignorant at times but I can assure you that such DJ gigs will NEVER have those places decorated with with such themes stated above. You can dress up like a medieval warrior or ninja for a DJ party for instance but who’s going to appreciate the fact that Konami has gone too far? Also, I don’t think I may have seen a DDR game with an irrelevant theme like that.

Having knowing the fact that zombies don’t fit in Metal Gear according to Hideo Kojima, how about saying and realizing that military, medieval fantasy, train and ninja themes DO NOT fit in DJ simulation rhythm games like Beatmania IIDX? I can assure that none of the DJ Max games may have such irrelevant themes like that. That may include probably DJ Max Technika series and Beatcraft Cyclon. What about Deemo? Does its theme fit so much correctly?

So here’s what the newest style of Beatmania IIDX offers for you. Each day may have different system BGM when you start the game along with differences to the Mode Select screen. One of the days every week gives you some kind of boost in the in-game currency although there should be better features to represent yourself like the player message that is displayed in-game like in Jubeat and Groove Coaster. Also, all the unlockable songs from Beatmania IIDX Pendual are available in case you don’t have so much time for arcade gaming in the arcades. Obviously, you may have to pay money for stuffs representing credits and having to unlock something you want costs even more.

After the gameplay, you get presented with a mini-game again, this time, you’re supposed to raid the castles from bottom to top floors. During gameplay, you get presented with items needed for that event. When you’re inside the castle, you’re supposed to search it for an item or a target. You can consume the amount of riceballs for extra strength by choosing the third option. Once you’ve located a target, you get to choose the second option to encounter it. You’re supposed to rid the castle of all the enemies and other obstacles to unlock the songs and clear it. There are three castles as of the present time and I already went through the first castle. Also, it looked like Konami implemented another mobile gaming element to one of Bemani games this year, this time with Beatmania IIDX Sinobuz’s castle intrusion event. What this does is to increase the amount of riceballs by 1 per 10 minutes of not playing the game. The maximum you can get is 2000 riceballs but bear in mind that you don’t migrate the riceballs over to the next castle so the remaining ones will be lost by the time you’ve completed the previous one. I believe that it will take estimated two weeks to get 2000 riceballs which you can gain with the Replenish command. There’s also the Skills command where you can reduce the enemy’s strength, increase your strength, reduce the consumption of riceballs, etc. Choosing Search will search the castle for treasures, gates and enemies to deal with and then choose Event to begin battle. You get to choose Event Cards to deal with which may look like a virtual card battle you will have in mobile games, not the arcade games.

Once the whole castle is like 100% searched and raided, all is left is the boss character to deal with to conquer the castle. Like always, events like this can be grindy and Konami has already gone to the deeper bullshit level with the Ninja theme for Beatmania IIDX after the Train one.

Global Game Jam 2017 – Plans to attend scrapped

There really isn’t anything special to say about the set used in DJ Viperstar’s podcast in Happy Hardcore website but it surely took place a day before the Global Game Jam. Unfortunately, until now, I still have an anxiety like, will there be a trouble I will land on if I secure an IT job despite having a diploma in something else which is above the NITEC and Higher NITEC of IT courses? That is something I have to ask the career coach about in the next appointment or I can ask someone else about it since I have another worry like this.

Also, the Global Game Jam is pretty much the one for those who have schools or work but the bigger surprise was that I had found someone in Skillsfuture website whose situation is the same as mine. He wanted to pursue the programming career badly like I wanted to pursue the IT career but the problem is the latest qualification on something else taken. Perhaps, I’m more frustrated than him to be frank. Sometime after I graduated, I got a bunch of job interview phone calls for whatever job I didn’t apply myself. It seemed that those fools at home had the guts to make an account representing me and then applying whatever bullshit they wanted. I thought that they would do this for fun like they accessed the USB HDD which wasn’t mine to set me up for fun during my internship days 6 years ago. I guess that it is illegal to make an account representing someone else and applying a bunch of jobs for them. That will land you in serious trouble for that when the company the victim works at realizes that the victim secured a job you applied for instead of him/her. I guess that the password you specified for that account was something victim didn’t know and that account you made is missing some of the things only the victim can specify. It was like they were trying to get in my way about after sometime, it would look like they would stop doing this shit, not because applying through an account representing me but not made by me would land them in trouble anyway and besides, they would specify a bunch of false records I would not accept.

As of the time of the writing, the event is on-going but I can’t tell the theme and all that until the event is over.

Tampines Printing Services

*Sigh* Another mediocre company upon seeing the overall review score on its Facebook page. In fact, I might have seen another mediocre company which is more or less an IT-based one like I would like to think twice before applying any IT job to work there. I guess that the overall review score of the place is due to the current reputation but initially, I don’t know what kind of bad things the company had done to cause such an average review score like that.

Perhaps, I went there for a public printing of my resume although I forgot the flash drive where I surely prepared the soft-copy of that for printing. So, I downloaded the same resume I stored on my Dropbox account to my Android device and then I mailed the service with that resume attached for $2. The total cost was around $2 for mailing + $1 for standard-sized print paper. I didn’t know that I could prepare the same thing for free at Workforce Singapore area of Public Service Center at Our Tampines Hub until I heard it from the career coach during the appointment so it was like a few dollars wasted then and this was all done for the FIRST-TIME. Perhaps, going to a place for the first place isn’t an easy thing but on the second time, I might have memorized the direction. So, I don’t know if I will come to that printing shop again in the future after knowing the review score or not.

If the printer at home worked correctly in the first place with my computer, I could have saved a few dollars that way. Maybe the printer was too old or perhaps, something else plagued the driver installation upon pluging in the USB cable. Also, the Windows Update feature on my computer does nothing but take up CPU temperature on purpose like an idiot that I turned it off completely, including its service set to disabled.

Lastly, the short form of that printing shop name is a complete turn off to me as if that shop is doing some evil shit politically in secret that will wipe out people’s freedom or something. Or maybe, they’re trying to isolate employees with legacy stuffs into an area of torture with limited resources and switch business at the same time like Konami did. I hope the same isolation won’t happen to me like that in the future unless those fools at home think too much that I have some problems that they manipulate every company to isolate me before I realize that shit. I fear that they will do that to me for fun based on my educational records while trying to act nice all the time. Better still, the domain name/web address for that shop should be renamed to something more decent.

Public Service Center at Our Tampines Hub

Now what, I already resumed the job search like either last month or this month and I still have yet to apply one that fits my interests, passion and skills for sure despite the controversial educational record I had. Also, ever since last year, I encountered another obstacle in which I would be invited for an interview for the field of job I have no complete interest with as I DO NOT wish to follow that inferior path based on my diploma record. Perhaps, I fear that I won’t last long probably due to the fact that I don’t have a lifelong experience, interest and passion in Engineering. Skills-wise, I already had the ability to deploy Windows OSes with Microsoft Deployment Toolkit as one professional practical example. I could also manage and configure Windows Server OSes although the practical zone is like way too tiny as this is all home use anyway. Not to mention that I have limited resources in the present time. Plus, I already had received something special from Microsoft for being one of the winners in Join the Tech Elite contest. I’m more of a veteran in IT than an Elite as a true Elite has the sufficient ability of a true IT Professional. I already had enough of the major damage that shit polytechnic in Woodlands had done to me and shared the criticism with the career coach in Day 2 regarding the lack of common diploma courses. Indeed, I also shared that same criticism with the ones from other local polytechnic during Global Game Jam 2016 but too bad they and I went on a more complicated route at that time and I had NO IDEA AND EXPERIENCE in Unity. I WOULD rather have learned more of Unity game engine if I wanted to but then, I have no condition to stand out as an indie game developer.

Day 1

Knowing that Workforce Singapore, formerly known as WDA, was located somewhere at Our Tampines Hub, I managed to go in the Public Service Centre where WSG was located. Of course, the first step would be to get a ticket and then proceed to the corresponding counter for information. But as I went there this afternoon, they decided that they would book the appointment for the following day.

Day 2

I was supposed to go to one of the rooms ranging from Room 18 to 29 and I got additional tips and advises from the career coach. I managed to tell him my concerns along with SkillsFuture stuff. I was told that I worried and misunderstood stuffs that much and I drifted away from the topics as well as delved too deep in the topics.

The resume I prepared in hard-copy form was okay enough but it was missing the email address and the order for the internship and educational experiences was wrong. Prior to this appointment and such, I also prepared an alternate version of the same resume with things already addressed before I realized it. It turned out that using work email in the resume was WHEN you left the previous job and you’re looking for a new one but when looking for the first one, you could have used the personal email address in the resume straight away so that the companies can mail you something. Sure, the companies might have accessed your resume because you submitted it to the job portals but the thing about the phone call was that not all phone numbers were traceable through the phone number identification app like Truecaller. I guess that those numbers were made private for some reason but I still hope that I would get the specific kind of job I wanted in the first place.

I was given interview tips and needless to say, I somewhat made things difficult with some questions as most of the time, I have been doing indie game development and music production although there’s no way I can put those things in my portfolio. I can, like putting the Global Game Jam game I had been doing in the portfolio but it is still incomplete to be frank.

Lastly, if the passion of becoming IT Professional is to backfire, then I can switch to Plan B which is becoming a club Disc Jockey. But be warned, it is not professional and easy to be frank and you will still need a day-job besides becoming a DJ and who’s going to pay the license for DJ gigs anyway?

Besides Jobs Bank which is WSG’s first advise of choice, there are other job portals like Intern, Indeed and Fast Job. Unfortunately for Indeed, it requires entering your work experience besides other information. Intern website is all about external internship and Fast Job app may consist of mostly Part-Time and Contract jobs.

Conclusion

It was an epic pressure that I would have to seek help from WSG via Public Service Center probably due to the fact that I had received a Jobstreet email that I will have to turn up for an interview next week for the type of job I have no complete interest in. It wasn’t the first time I encountered such an obstacle like that. The last time was that some former sibling of mine tried to get in my way and plans by attempting to apply the same type of bullshit for me based on my educational transcript. It’s like she wanted me to follow what that shit polytechnic offered even after graduation. This life-altering plan is NOT what I want and I wish that I can bring my OLD SELF back, an IT kind-of-a-person, not some other bullshit that shit polytechnic offered. One common situation is that many of the IT jobs are outsourced to many of the consultancy and recruitment agencies. It might be tough to find a third-party-like IT company in Singapore although I managed to find some like Technopals Pte Ltd. for instance, which WAS an IT industry offering some IT jobs.

It may be a pain for locals seeking IT jobs at this rate but I shouldn’t give up that way as I believe I already saw some famous former students of other local polytechnics starting their own companies. Also, the presence of foreign employees for hire may be a bigger issue for the locals but it doesn’t mean that we are less capable.
