I would want to state some facts about the Israeli-Arab conflict.

THEREALSINGAPORE 21 July 2014 - 1:03pm

Dear The Real Singapore, I am a foreign worker living in Singapore. I recently receive a warning letter from my boss for coming late to work.

It also takes an additional 1 hour to close door after working hours. Technically, working more than 12 hours is illegal as I am taking a fixed pay and my boss ask me not to tell anything to MOM or else he will cancel my visa and send me back home.
