    this is quite random, but basically in the future i would like to go travelling (im year 11) and thinking about it i don't seem to have any time until i graduate fro uni, id like to go to uni and not take a gap year, is there anyway i could fit travelling anytime during the sixth form/uni period? or do i basically just have to wait till the end of uni?
    In the future, when you have a job offer. You could ask the employer to defer your commencement by a year. Alternatively, you could do a study abroad year within your degree.

    Re: Sixth form, summer is really the only time you could do any sort of extensive travel.

    See my reply

    Tokyo - Nope for political reasons as well as my lack of knowledge of the stock market there. Singapore - Nope for lack of any prominent Propietary Trading firms having an office there, nor would I have any connections.

    Yeah, let's have a look! Post the list of firms you're looking at joining as well.

    Canada is currently under-populated -compared to their land mass - so they are aggresively promoting immigration, especially within the highly sought after professions.

    Gah, I sound like a spokesperson for Canada
    Canada is the nicer, more free-health-care-ier America :pierre:

    San Francisco - :woo: (For a tech start-up or something)

    Apparently adding 'lay gor tao' after something is supposed to be rude? Except I'm not seeing how someone's head is supposed to be rude
    And calling someone 'yat gao fan' (a piece of rice) is rude too!
    Oh languages.. :rolleyes:

    No idea what that means!
    Everyone likes to call each other 'tsee seen' (crazy) and say stuff like 'mo dune dune' and 'mo ching ching' and 'mo la la' :laugh: I don't even know what they mean, they just fit in with all these words and sound good
    Oh and my grandma likes to say 'tsieu' a lot; no idea what it means D:
