“In compass club, we learn how to save and value every single cent of our money. Every session, we are required to bring our bank account statement showing that we are saving for our particular goal, so that at the end of our working days in Singapore, we go back to our own country with knowledge and big hope in our hearts, [to] turn that goal into reality. … My goal… is [to have] my own restaurant… with 8 tables, and serving western / Asian food.”
