So tired from all the work.. trying to see whether getting a new job will benefit me a not.. anyway I am trying for it just see how it goes..

Needed referee for my job application and suddenly realised I have fewer and fewer friends =/ I mean yup I do still hang out with some of my sec sch pals during our birthdays and I just felt kinda surprised both of them already got proposed to by their bfs this year.. time seems to fly past so quickly and nowdays it seems like we are all so busy with our own lives.. I didn't even know SX was getting married this year till we meet up..

=/ Guess we went from best friends to casual friends =( sad but true.. guess being an adult isn't really that fun ha.. so much responsibilities so little time..

I miss being young and carefree when I was a kid..
I miss my ice cream cone after my kindergarten class.. and my repeated telecasts of Ch 8 shows in the afternoon after my school...
I miss walking in Bedok Reservoir with my mum and sis on Saturday afternoons where we stroll by the long long drain and even pluck some lalangs because they were just too lovely...
I miss taking pictures with the animals in the zoo and playing with the animals in Children's world where my sis and I try to feed the animals with grass..
I miss looking down from the eight storey in anticipation when my dad's taxi drove into the carpark and me and my sis would be busy looking at my dad's hands to see if he was carrying our favourite Mac Donald's..
I miss going to ML's house to play with her cute dog and laze the afternoon away at her house..
I miss going to YL's house just to play after school..
I miss skipping Choir practise just to go to F's house to bake cookies
I miss having birthday celebrations with my family because there will always be a cake with presents to open up..

I miss my kiddy life lol =/

So, you slogged through more than 10 years of your life to get that coveted degree.

But are you earning a decent monthly income?

Let’s define “decent” as being at least slightly more than 50% of your cohort, or what’s called the median.

If you’re getting way below the median, maybe you need to do something about it.

Based on data from the latest MOM report on the labour force (for 2007), the median gross monthly income for degree holders in their 30s is $4,880; and that for degree holders in their 40s is $7,000.

The numbers are higher for males, by more than 5%. I’m not sure why…

The gross monthly income reported includes bonuses, commissions and other allowances that can be construed as income.

The following are the median gross monthly income for the various age groups (those for males are in brackets):

Age group 25-29: $3,250 (males $3,270)
Age group 30-39: $4,880 (males $5,130)
Age group 40-49: $7,000 (males $7,580)
Age group 50-59: $7,500 (males $7,930)
Age 60 & above: $7,250 (males $8,170)
Are you above the median?

Reference: Report on Labour Force in Singapore 2007, Ministry of Manpower.

Following the previous post on degree holders’ income, we now look at the income of diploma holders.

The following are the numbers for diploma holders, also from the same MOM report on the labour force:

Median Gross Monthly Income for Diploma Holders

Age group 25-29: $2,170 (males $2,170)
Age group 30-39: $3,060 (males $3,250)
Age group 40-49: $4,000 (males $4,330)
Age group 50-59: $4,330 (males $4,500)
Age 60 & above: $3,930 (males $3,250)
Notice that these numbers are just two-thirds (or lower) of those for degree holders. See previous post.

Antibiotics are used to treat infections caused by bacteria. Most times when you catch a cold or are down with flu or have a mild sore throat these are caused by viruses. It is of no use to ask the doctor to give you antibiotics for these.

What is antibiotic resistance?

When people don't take antibiotics properly or do not finish the course, instead of eliminating the infection altogether, the antibiotic kills only the weaker, non-resistant organisms and leaves the tougher ones to become more resistant. And you will need stronger antibiotics to fight off this resistant strain of bacteria the next time around.

To reduce the problem of antibiotic resistance:

Follow your doctor's instructions when taking antibiotics.

Take your antibiotics at the same time every day.

Finish all your antibiotics to kill the bacteria completely.

Never take another person's antibiotics.

Do not take antibiotics for a cold or the flu, since these are viral infections that do not respond to antibiotic.

Avoid doctor-hopping as this will make it more difficult for the doctor to come to an accurate diagnosis.

What If Antibiotics Are Used Incorrectly?

No healing effect - If antibiotics are used for viral infections, there will be no effect on the illness.

Antibiotic resistance - This occurs when one antibiotic no longer works on a specific type of bacteria. A stronger antibiotic will be needed to treat the infection caused by this resistant strain of bacteria.

What Causes Antibiotic Resistance?

Antibiotic resistance develops when antibiotics are used wrongly such as:

Antibiotics taken when not needed, thus killing the 'good' bacteria, which normally keep harmful bacteria from multiplying, and allowing harmful bacteria to multiply and cause illness.

Insufficient antibiotics taken e.g. lower than the required dose or when full course is not completed, resulting in not all the harmful bacteria being killed. The surviving harmful bacteria then change to protect themselves against the particular antibiotic. So this same antibiotic may not work the next time you take it!

Use Antibiotics Correctly

Don't demand antibiotics from your doctor because they do not work for all infections. Let your doctor decide the appropriate treatment for you. If your doctor prescribes antibiotics for you, take them correctly to prevent antibiotic resistance.

Take the antibiotic as frequently as instructed so that there will be enough antibiotic in your blood to kill all the harmful bacteria. Find out if you need to take them before or after your meals. Some antibiotics become less effective if they are taken with food.

Take the correct dose of antibiotic. Insufficient antibiotics delay your recovery and may also lead to antibiotic resistance.

Finish the full course of antibiotics because this is the amount needed to kill the harmful bacteria. Although you may feel better after starting the antibiotic, not all the bacteria would have been killed yet. Also, never share your antibiotics with someone else or take somebody else's unfinished course of antibiotics.
