Singapore/Korea/Japan is extremely intense. Not only the work culture, but you need to know also about social etiquette. What's your plan/background? Are you just looking for overseas work? Or are you trying to immigrate to the SEA region?

Hi Fishes A bit off topic but relevant. Did anyone hear abt TekFog & Persistent Systems Limited ? Did they develop it ? What's going on ? I wanted to apply (location preference) but am worried now if company is into these sort of unethical activities even more so if they don't even know about it. Does anyone has any insights into it beyond the company blog post claiming they are not involved. Also how is the work culture there, are these sort things even believable for such company ?
