GE 2020 - Aljunied GRC Hottest Seat !!! (2)

Read? GE 2020 - Aljunied GRC Hottest Seat !!!

Ivan Lim was only 16 when he started working in Keppel Harbour Yard in 1994, right after his O Levels. His circumstances were such that he had no choice but to start work at that young age. He was given a scholarship from Keppel to pursue his diploma in marine engineering, and later on a degree. Over the years, he received opportunities to perform and grow with the company. He also benefited from the mentorship provided by his seniors in Keppel.
Today, Ivan is the General Manager (Operations) of Keppel Shipyard and President of the Keppel Young Leaders. It is an inspiring story of how Keppel nurtures its talents.

The Moral of Story ???

No nonsense, sharp eyes to the fine details and "ruthless" corporate rising stars are not uncommon in the corporate world; they can rule the corporation with their iron fists; but not in election by popular votes when every voters have their rights. LOL!

In Uncle8888's 39 years in the corporate world as lower rank employee has also encountered quite a number of such bosses. 

They banged table, shouted at you, you do exactly what they want you to do. You not happy then you should leave or get yourself transfer on your own. For own transfer; it is hard to convince the receiving department that it is not your failing that you want out!

To survive in corporate world without taking such nonsenses from such bosses is to pursue FI and then has the option on hand to show them F.... U!


  1. i concur. i can tahan only 2 to 5 years in a company.

    So choose Field servicing job at least half of the day i am out of the office.

    But never can escape office politics - sure die quite soon as straight talking to anyone in the office ensure i would be back-stabbed very fast lol.

    NVM, my time i could found another job quite fast.

    Have managed to survive until now with straight talking (No need many friends but straight talking ones can be friend ).

    酒逢知己千杯少,话不投机半句多, “道 不 同 不 相 为 谋,志不 同 不 相 为 友”

    The above Chinese saying are 2 of my favourite sayings as reminder.




  2. We got a new group of bosses now. Paper generals who make decisions based on numbers and figures from statistics.
    And the result is...... still cannot solve problems, Sigh.

    1. make decisions based on numbers and figures from statistics is still okay. Playing with numbers and figures like Hin Leong or Wirecard then jialiat!

  3. If mistake is made due to inexperience still maybe redeemable most probably.

    Can learn from it ma.

    If 心术不正, then it is another matter - Like TRUMP of ???? land.

  4. Without any background you can only be a axxhole that no one want to be, but a axxhole is still a axxhole. We have too many of them making 16k per month working part time to show face in parliament session just to press the YES button. Hope he dont have any KTV video and learn to take a humble pie. Politics is for the real elitist, who will replace him....interesting.

    1. Assholes?
      An organisation is like a tree full of monkeys, all on different limbs at different levels, some climbing up, some fooling around and some simply just idling... The monkeys on top look down and see a tree full of smiling faces...The monkeys on the bottom look up and see nothing but assholes...

      Lesson: Those at the bottom seem happy getting shits from the assholes.

      Read? Four lessons

  5. Achieve FI and have the option to RE is the way to go for everyone.

  6. The party also called for higher CPF withdrawals at the age of 55. LOL! Not contesting in Aljunied GRC. Ok lah
