I can still remember almost 40 years ago when I started my first job at 16 at Macdonald’s as a crew at Liat Towers, the first branch to be opened in Singapore, and I learned many values that will help me sustain myself for the rest of my life. Also at 16, I can still remember the help I was given by an old lady who lives in Macpherson who linked me up with E & E Engineering Pte Ltd to get a loan of $20k for equipment for my first company I started with friends on mobile disco services and I learned many lessons. I am today helping everybody for this remarkable lady who may have passed away but the memories will always remain. What is the use of keeping so much money when your family members is a mess and nobody helps but only take from you. I would rather my children learn the hard way and climb their career ladder like anybody else rather than to spoil them. Remember your family is the centre of influence and you must cherish every bond and sacrifice. But mine is so disfunctional that it can be a lesson learned for everyone else in the world when the centre is all about money, please do not be like my family but centre it on love, you build relationships, not destroy them. and if you do not learn this basic you can never get on in life. So many people I cross in life and you can never tell how their destiny will unfold so if someone who has helped me in life I will never compete with them but bow out of the competition, because I remember, and if I succeed in life I will always pull up others in my past because of the relationship we had in the past. These are the lessons my God taught me or else we are no different from beasts, what good if you rule the world at the very top and there is no-one with you. No man is an Island. Contributed by Oogle.
