During uni, I joined their summer internship, then after graduation I used my 1 year employment visa as part of the practical training to join their graduate trainee program and did a fairly good job so they applied for a work permit for me.

4 years later I asked for a project in Britain as I don't need a visa to work in Britain as I wanted to gain experience outside of America.

The newer the degree, the more useless it is.

The first batch of Hospitality students studied both Tourism, Kitchen, and Hotel Management.

The second batch studies Tourism alone, kitchen production alone, or hotel management alone.

The third becomes a sub-standard degree with some useless topic.

Degree nowadays is worthless tbh, unless you're in IT, Accounting, or Finance. Not business management yeah, business management is a high-class hotel escort for bosses.


Got an offer to go the UK, I went and pass their second interview. Took the job and handling the food production kitchen for Wetherspoon, other pubs, you name it. Later got headhunted to become F&B quality controlling surveyor, working under some super-duper high idiocy department and do an inspection to various food and beverage establishments. Even had the opportunity to open course and teach dumb young european, asian, english, and those only their mother know where they come from, about what is F&b, Quality control, surveying, and management.

Then after few years inside this company, I graduated and become my own boss. Found my waifu, learn about the deadly tricks to earn more, and here I am, ex teacher, ex staff, ex manager, and ex bf of those crazy wimmin out there.

TBH, asian market is quite a big one for angmoh business.

The ability to speak malay, english, chinese, jepunis, and koleanis are quite sought after in overseas.

I got mine also because I can crawl into the chinese people industry and manage their food quality control during my job.

Dunno become what level translator already to handover translated documents for superior.

Gg betul la ts tanya soalan ni. As long as you have good reputation , the Angmos will keep calling you back to help on new project. I didnt even offer myself, other ppl just nominated my name.
I dun even have a lousy malaysian IR or electrictian cert.
But i can sign off documents here for HV equipment.
I just ask the sparkies to run around and i sit in aircond room doing excel sheet.

Why not?

You can get jobs when you have a skill that most angmoh doesn't have

e.g. in the forefront of technology but China will offer you double and give you expat status because angmoh and Sg look down on Malaysians

Malaysians working overseas are quite common. About one-third of my high school graduating class of 28 are working elsewhere.

1 is an actuary in the UK now
1 is a project manager who has moved around a lot over his career - US, UK, and now Dubai. We joke that he's definitely taking his time to come back to Malaysia
1 is a biotechnology consultant based in California
1 is a marketing manager who lives and works in California
1 is a corporate lawyer who worked in Germany and is now in London
1 is an academic (physics) who worked in the US for a while.. we've lost touch so not sure where he is now
1 is an accountant who settled down in Australia as soon as she graduated
1 is a doctor who graduated from Australia, married there, and works there
1 is an entrepreneur who moves around a lot, set up a company in Australia, and is probably coming back because he sold out his position

Then there's me who spent 6 years in Europe, and I came back to Malaysia providing freelance services to European companies...

That was one of the reason.

Maybe ayam too old for big city living also, go there jam go here jam, parking hard to find although it is easier to park in Bangkok, just remember to put your gear in N and do not apply parking brake.

There is some part of the city i miss now.

The newer the degree, the more useless it is.

The first batch of Hospitality students studied both Tourism, Kitchen, and Hotel Management.

The second batch studies Tourism alone, kitchen production alone, or hotel management alone.

The third becomes a sub-standard degree with some useless topic.

Degree nowadays is worthless tbh, unless you're in IT, Accounting, or Finance. Not business management yeah, business management is a high-class hotel escort for bosses.
Got an offer to go the UK, I went and pass their second interview. Took the job and handling the food production kitchen for Wetherspoon, other pubs, you name it. Later got headhunted to become F&B quality controlling surveyor, working under some super-duper high idiocy department and do an inspection to various food and beverage establishments. Even had the opportunity to open course and teach dumb young european, asian, english, and those only their mother know where they come from, about what is F&b, Quality control, surveying, and management.

Then after few years inside this company, I graduated and become my own boss. Found my waifu, learn about the deadly tricks to earn more, and here I am, ex teacher, ex staff, ex manager, and ex bf of those crazy wimmin out there.

Malaysians working overseas are quite common. About one-third of my high school graduating class of 28 are working elsewhere.

1 is an actuary in the UK now
1 is a project manager who has moved around a lot over his career - US, UK, and now Dubai. We joke that he's definitely taking his time to come back to Malaysia
1 is a biotechnology consultant based in California
1 is a marketing manager who lives and works in California
1 is a corporate lawyer who worked in Germany and is now in London
1 is an academic (physics) who worked in the US for a while.. we've lost touch so not sure where he is now
1 is an accountant who settled down in Australia as soon as she graduated
1 is a doctor who graduated from Australia, married there, and works there
1 is an entrepreneur who moves around a lot, set up a company in Australia, and is probably coming back because he sold out his position

Then there's me who spent 6 years in Europe, and I came back to Malaysia providing freelance services to European companies...

OnG is always profitable.

Earning pound is also sweet, cos 1k pound here in the UK is easy to earn, compared to 5k ringgit in malaysia.

I'm in the UK as well, earning pound for 5 ringgit each or 8 renminbi.

6 years spread across two countries: the UK and the Netherlands. I never quite got interested in living long-term in Europe. Competition and cost of living are way too high.

I do market research freelance but I am thinking of winding that down slowly over this year and the next.

i'm a law graduate, so naturally a lot of my course mates studied twinning in the UK for their degrees. I count at least 1 in 5 of them ended up settling down there with their angmoh bf, at least ten of which i know are already working there and trying to get spousal visa then eventually PR and citizenship.

but job wise not that lucrative in the legal sector, paralegal pays about 1.5k pounds per month, you could earn almost as good money in SG for this and be much closer to home.


If guys, usually corporate climbers and get transferred overseas, some already had existing PR which made it much easier to get jobs, especially in Australia.

Difficult to answer; in short - it depends. Yes, it's important and "vital" (also for daily living); but it's not the ONLY factor of candidate choice as I have heard stories of my asian colleague being discriminated even with German language proficiency. So, it's not a guarantee, but best to have it especially if you don't have any other "advantages" to stand out among other candidates. For example my case, in the end; I had less than 5 2nd round interviews, but my disadvantages are (1) I wanted market salary and (2) I don't speak German. My main advantages are my CV, but also the fact that I was already in "Europe".

It really depends on the company (and the culture) that you're applying to. Best to stick to MNCs, but even then; the salary divide is real. I can name a couple of MNC companies that were only willing to pay what my previous salary was; which is absurd since I would have to move across Europe (and I could have just moved to Germany with my previous company if i wanted a 20% increase in $$$).
