Dont worry. My classmate at nuh is a insta influencer. Many posts per day.
Mohh also never bat an eyelid.

The thing is as long as you declare your income when filing your iras returns, nobody cares.

The employment contract is just a contract. It is not a crime to breach it. Not filing your taxes is a criminal offence

Yes. Once you get your full reg and fulfill at least 3 months in ED or anaesthesia, you can write to MINDEF to express interest for NS MOCC.

Will take you for the next intake if spaces are available.

I would like to say the following (and yes this IS GENERALIZING so it may not apply to every single situation)

But....

1) Foreign grads are considered below local grads when being considered for job positions and residency positions (that doesn't mean the foreign grads are poorer in skillset/EQ/ results)

2) Foreign degrees are next to useless in Singapore. All it ensures is at best conditional registration, which means you will NEVER EVER LEAVE the institution setting seeing how only a miniscule % will ever get full registration

3) Pay is **** relatively speaking. If $ is the most important consideration - do not do medicine

4) Getting a residency is one thing, getting a job at the end of the residency is another. There is no guarantee of either, but its far worse to find you have no job (to become a full fledged specialist) after 4years of struggling as a resident then to be rejected right from day 1

5) Locum safely. Don't go crazy gungho and work within your limits. Don't skip work and try to locum within the institutions first.

Happy to answer any questions within reason . Cheers
