My suit comes with a PRC flag pin.

An Indian migrant worker stared me down when I wore a yellow Li Ning T-shirt the other day so there's that.

Piss off, Western (and Jai Hind) apologists!
My man.

We need some SDF "Back to Back LAC winner - 1962 to present" & "Trade War Winner" T-shirts, made with Xinjiang cotton of course.

That'll sure give certain types a double take moment.

Of course. That's why Malay-led Malaysia (which is far richer in natural resources and land mass) is light years behind Chinese-led Singapore in every conceivable aspect of development, from economics to technology to education to healthcare to infrastructure to culture, and so on and so forth. Malay master race indeed. Malaysia Boleh!!

Since there's a few months before I relocate out of Singapore, are any of the folks who reside in Singapore interested in checking out Singapore Chinese Orchestra in downtown? Guzheng, erhu orchestra etc
Where you heading to? Don't be specific but are you still going to be staying at one of the ASEAN countries or you heading to the land of the rising sun

If you want fun study liberal arts. Engineering is hardcore and require advanced mathematics and physics.
Engineering does not require advanced mathematics. They do not teach much mathematics in engineering. They do not even teach metric spaces and vector spaces in most universities.

I mean I study electrical engineering and this is definitely not true. No matter what field of engineering you go into you will definitely use quite a bit of math, in fact about a third of your classes will be purely math/physics classes.

Yes I know they teach mathematics but the belief that engineering students are as good as math majors is quite wrong. Mathematics research however is quite different. I wouldn't call it useless but it has no practical application. It is meant to be pursued only for the advancement of science.

Then you're talking about pure math which engineering students don't touch. Engineering students definitely go through a lot of applied math, in fact the applied math and engineering majors have a lot of classes which overlap.

There should be more of an emphasis on building a solid mathematical background in engineering programs, in Australia at least.

You can't be a top engineer if you don't have mastery over basic algebra, calculus and understanding how functions work geometrically (e.g. integration for volume, rotations, integral / derivative feedback, etc.).

Also for some reason, a large proportion of software engineering majors seem to be really weak at basic math (seems weaker towards the algebra side).

That is still basic math. Engineering courses teach that well.

I am more concerned about the level of mathematics in Australian high schools, which leaves a lot to be desired. You see a lot of first year kids dropping out of STEM in university for this very reason. Unless you went to an elite private school, Australian HS-level math generally does a poor job of preparing you for the rigor required in university.
