Singapore Dreaming

Just watched “Singapore Dreaming” on Tuesday. I thought it was a really good movie. I went in thinking it was a typical Singapore movie, Jack Neo’s style but it was not. The movie is really showing a very real Singapore family where the elder is always thinking of striking top prize in TOTO and the son is always dreaming and not working hard. The father did manage to strike the top prize of $2 million dollars but not for long before he got a heart attack and passed away. The children then argued over the inheritance because they thought no will was done. In the end the daughter got much more than the son. Anyway I want to focus on the son-in-law. He was a regular in the Arm Forces and after he finished serving a 10years contract. His age is too old for a fresh but he’s inexperienced in doing any mature position. That’s the problem with those in Singapore serving the forces. So this guy ended up selling insurance. He’s really pathetic, called up his Secondary school friends to try to sell them something. I think he hated his job but no choice. That’s the problem with many insurance agents here. Try to be real while being fake, pathetic. Anyway, this guy quitted his job and did something else, which he was much happier. To some it may be a happy ending. At the end of the day, I learnt to treasure my love ones, work hard and stay positive. Don’t forget all the small details, learn to be appreciative in life because there won’t be a chance for you to go back in time, so don’t regret. Move on! Lastly, PLEASE SUPPORT THIS MOVIE BY WATCHING IT AND RECOMMEND IT TO OTHERS!
