New Mothers Support Group Singapore: Socials @ Gymboree

A great opportunity to meet other Mums in a similar situation to yourself.

New Mothers Support Group Singapore - As a not-for-profit society we have to keep our running costs as low as possible so that we can keep giving you, our members, the best value. And from time to time, the cost of running events rises. For more than 6 years we've been able to offer our socials at the same price but unfortunately we have had to take the decision to raise our entry fees for our Gymboree socials. From 1 March 2016 the entry fee for our Gymboree Tanglin socials will increase from $5 per child to $7 per child.

- Please note that no food or drinks are permitted at Gymboree. However, there are a couple of benches just outside where you can feed your baby

- The Gymboree caters for children aged under 60 months and children above this age will not be permitted to enter the play area.

- All adults must wear socks within the Gymboree centre. So please pack some in your bag before coming along, otherwise a pair can be bought for S$2.00 at the centre.

- Please note, due to the popularity of this venue, we have started a first come / first served system as there is a limit to the number of children/adults permitted in the Gymboree Room at any one time.

- Meet-up registration does not guarantee you a place at our regular socials.

- As entrance numbers are limited, we respectfully remind you that helpers are not allowed to attend our events.

You can register your interest in attending this event via the NMSG Meetup Group

When?

Gymboree @ Tanglin Mall is between 3pm to 4.30pm on the following dates in 2016:

3 Lessons Young Singaporeans Can Learn

3 Lessons Young Singaporeans Can Learn From the Retrenchment of Middle Aged PMETs

Once upon a time, getting a cushy PMET job and rising to senior management was the Singaporean dream. Claw your way to the top of the corporate ladder and you’d be in for a lifetime of cruising around in your Porsche and golfing at the country club.

But those days are gone, and middle-aged, highly-trained PMETs are now first in line for retrenchment at many companies. These people have not only been most affected by the increased spates of retrenchment last year, but are also having the hardest time finding jobs. Many of those who do find jobs take a huge pay cut or end up doing things like driving taxis.

Now, all this might sound awful, but is life really worse for someone who’s been earning $10,000 for the past 10 or 20 years only to lose his job, or for a lower income earner who’s been toiling away for 30 years but earning only $1,000 a month?

Obviously, the PMET should be in a much better place than his lower earning counterpart if he has played his cards right in his economically active days and saved and invested wisely. Unfortunately, we often get the reverse scenario, where PMETs are so mired in debt and their lifestyles are so expensive to upkeep that losing their job immediately becomes disastrous.

You might be young now, but in a decade or two you could be facing the same risk of being made redundant. Here are 3 things to never forget along the way.

Jump start your retirement savings and investments when you’re young

Judging by the number of Chanel handbags you see on the streets, young Singaporeans aren’t prioritising saving and investing, figuring they can handle that when they’re older, more boring and have higher earning power.

A 2014 report revealed that 36% of young Singaporeans had no savings at all, while 25% had less than $6,000. The generation before didn’t fare too well either, with an average of just $60,000 in savings.

The problem with this mentality is that it’s premised on the belief that it’ll be easier to save money at a later age. That isn’t the case for many of the PMET’s who’ve been retrenched and found that they were bogged down by car loans, housing loans and dependents to support.

If these people had prioritised saving and investing when they were younger, getting laid off might not have been as scary as it is right now.

Sure, they would have been earning much less in their younger days. But with the help of compounding interest and the benefit of a burgeoning economy, their money could have grown significantly over time—probably much more than it will ever grow in their remaining years before retirement.

The best time to start saving for retirement is when you’re young. Even if you can’t save as much as you think you will when you’re older, if you invest it wisely your money can work a lot harder than it can if you only start in middle age.

When you reach your forties or fifties and your risk of getting retrenched rises, if you already have a decent nest egg saved up you might see your derailed career plans as a rather welcome sign that it’s time to take it easy. If you haven’t, however, good luck.

Be wary of inflating your lifestyle as you rise through the ranks

The most recent Straits Times report on PMET retrenchment mentioned that some of the retrenched folks complained about being bogged down by financial obligations like car loans and housing mortgages, and lamented having to adjust their lifestyles.

That makes you wonder just how much of their lifestyle inflation was necessary to begin with, and how much was due to their wanting to live the high life and being complacent enough to think they’d be able to enjoy such high salaries for the rest of their careers.

Sure, your financial obligations do increase when you buy a home or have kids. But is it really necessary to go into debt just so you can be seen driving a BMW or pay more than a million bucks for a condo?

Young Singaporeans who are lulled into a false sense of security by a job market that makes employment readily available to the young and relatively cheap should take heed that the higher you climb, the more precarious your position will be, unless you are in field that renders you more or less immune to retrenchment (meaning you’re a teacher, doctor, data scientist, civil servant or similar).

You don’t really want to live like a king when the throne can be snatched from under you at any moment.

Never get complacent at work

Retrenchment might sound unfair to an outsider—after an employee has given a company the best years of his life, casting him aside sounds barbaric.

But ask any young Singaporean who’s been subject to the incompetent tyranny of middle and upper management folks well past their prime, and you’ll receive a different opinion.

Complaints about supervisors who are even less competent than rookie hires and manage their teams terribly are sadly quite common, and it’s not very difficult to say why these folks would be the first to get laid off.

Due to the fact that workplaces in Singapore are generally very hierarchical, many employees who are senior enough to become supervisors or managers get complacent about their jobs, thinking they can now rely on their subordinates to take the rap if things go wrong at work. Of course not everyone is like that, but ask around and you’ll find it’s more common than you think.

As a young employee who might one day be promoted, never forget that the higher your salary is, the harder it is to show you deserve it. You have to be more knowledgeable and better at your job than your subordinates are or risk being replaced.

That means constant upgrading, learning new things and at times being made to feel like an old dog trying to learn new tricks. It may sound like a bother, but that’s what you’re really being paid for.

Ashinaga Group Asia: International Student Programs

Giving orphaned students abroad the chance to study in Japan

While Ashinaga originally only supported Japanese students who had lost parents, as time passed it became increasingly clear that we had the experience and means to assist orphaned students outside Japan as well.

This first took the shape of fundraising for international humanitarian crises, but eventually grew into various financial aid and scholarship opportunities to benefit orphaned students from around the world.

Why study in Japan?

Japan is a global leader in higher education, with its universities consistently ranking among the top in Asia and featuring in lists of the best universities around the world. Through the Global 30 University initiative, Japan’s universities are also more open and international than ever.

Japan is also considered a forerunner in technology, sustainability, and the drive for global peace. Students studying here will benefit greatly from seeing how this country is able to attain high levels of development, while still maintaining relative harmony among its population as well as a balance between globalization and tradition.

Our student support team

Moving far away to a country quite different from one’s own can be daunting, which is why all of our students who study in the Asia-Pacific region, including Japan, Australia, and New Zealand are looked after by our experienced student support team. They are there to ensure you get the support you need to make the most of the university experience, and also so that you have someone to turn to with any problems or questions.

Ashinaga Uganda and Senegal

Since 2006, Ashinaga has been providing support and financial aid to students in Uganda, so that they can pursue their undergraduate studies in Japan. Typically, we have supported two students per year, who then are offered housing at our Ashinaga Kokoro-Juku in either Kobe or Tokyo.

Previous students have studied at Waseda University, International Christian University, Sophia University, Meiji University, Doshisha University, Kyoto University, and many others.

Ashinaga has also begun giving scholarships to high school students from Uganda and Senegal to study at senior high schools in Japan. This intensive, immersive program allows students to quickly excel in their Japanese language skills.

Learn more about Ashinaga’s activities in Sub-Saharan Africa

Ashinaga Africa Initiative

Students on the Ashinaga Africa Initiative are also encouraged to undertake their studies in Japan. The Ashinaga Africa Initiative hopes to contribute to the continued development of Sub-Saharan Africa through providing a high-quality education to ambitious orphaned students who want to use that education to make a difference.

One-year Programs

Ashinaga currently runs a one-year exchange program for orphaned students from Indonesia and Vietnam currently studying at our partner institutions, Airlangga University and the Sakura Japanese Language School. Interested students should contact their school directly.

Rainbow Exchange

In exchange for accepting our Japanese students at their institutions as part of our Overseas Training Program, Ashinaga invites students from Kocaeli University and Airlangga University to Japan every year. Invitees spend the summer interacting with Ashinaga students, learning Japanese, and learning about Japanese culture.

Learn more about the Overseas Training Program for Japanese students

Past Programs

International summer camps

From 2000 to 2005, Ashinaga held annual international summer camps, or international tsudoi, in which students from 15 different countries gathered and shared memorable experiences with one another. These gatherings brought together orphaned students from Afghanistan, Algeria, Colombia, El Salvador, India, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Malaysia, Maldives, Serbia Montenegro (Kosovo), Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, Uganda, and the USA.

Through these camps, students were able to discover that despite the national and linguistic barriers tht divided them, they shared the pain of losing a parent and becoming orphaned.

Tsunami Orphan Scholarship Program

A number of students from Sri Lanka and Indonesia were invited to undertake their undergraduate studies in Japan with a scholarship from Ashinaga, having been affected by the 2004 Indian Ocean Earthquake and Tsunami.

This program was made possible in part by student-led fundraising conducted by Ashinaga students in Japan.

Learn more about our student activism in Japan

Haiti Program

Following the 2010 Haiti Earthquake, Ashinaga secured funds for four students to study at a university in Japan on an Ashinaga scholarship. All of these students have since graduated and are now either pursuing further studies, working, or contributing their skills back in Haiti.

Preventing Insurance Fraud: Life Insurance and Health Conditions

Whether you’re a young adult, a stay-at-home parent or a retiree, you may have a need for life insurance.

Yet you may have concerns about your health conditions. Many people think certain conditions preclude them from getting life insurance. In reality, many common and manageable conditions won’t disqualify you from being approved for a policy.

The truth about life insurance and health conditions

Although it varies by insurer, many companies will extend coverage to people who experience the following:

1. Health conditions a medical professional is helping you control and manage.These conditions could include high cholesterol, hypertension, asthma, thyroid conditions, heart murmurs, diabetes, being overweight and more.

2. More serious conditions that you had in the past. This can include heart attack or heart surgery, cancer, stroke and other diseases. “Things an insurer will consider include the type and severity of the illness, the time that’s elapsed since the diagnosis, the stability of your health and your treatment regimen,” says John Ptaszynski, chief life underwriter at Erie Insurance.

It’s important to remember that it typically costs more to buy life insurance if you suffer from a health condition or use tobacco. It’s also worth noting that your ability of obtaining life insurance decreases if you suffer from multiple health conditions.

Three things to keep in mind

John advises anyone interested in life insurance to keep three things in mind.

First, never assume a health condition automatically disqualifies you from obtaining life insurance. “Don’t think that you can’t get life insurance because you’re in less than perfect health,” he says. “You may very well be eligible for coverage—so always check with a licensed insurance agent to find out for sure.”

Second, be honest about your medical history. “You may compromise a future claim if you make a material misrepresentation, like failing to mention a major surgery or serious diagnosis,” says John.

As a condition of obtaining life insurance, you will likely undergo a simple medical exam. This exam can reveal certain conditions like high blood pressure or a smoking habit. “It’s just not worth it to not disclose important information about your health,” says John.

And third: If you do have a condition like the two mentioned above, it’s best to apply earlier rather than later. That’s because it could be impossible to obtain coverage if things take a turn for the worse later on. And if things improve, you can always talk to your insurance agent about more affordable options that could be available to you as a result of your improved health.

Your Agent’s there to help

Life insurance and health conditions might sound intimidating or confusing—but they don’t have to be. Your best course of action is to talk with a professional like an Erie Insurance Agent in your community. He or she will be able to give you trusted advice on which coverage options* are available to you and your family.

*Life insurance and annuity products are not available in New York.
