马来西亚女子分享锦鲤死后的烹饪方式

Jan 21, 2021 | 🚀 Fathership

锦鲤一直被认为是观赏鱼,它们是亚洲家庭池塘和鱼缸中的宠物。

一个马来西亚人却决定烹饪她的锦鲤,这让所有人都大吃一惊。这些锦鲤由于她的助理忘记关掉鱼缸的水窒息而死(没错,锦鲤会在水中低氧时窒息)。

女子Amanda Omeychua在“今天煮砸了”脸书群组里展示了她用锦鲤煮成的鱼汤。

她写道:“这是一道皇室菜肴的祖传烹饪方式,它尝起来像巴沙鱼(银鲶鱼)。”

Amanda还在评论区补充说她觉得把死锦鲤扔掉很浪费。

尽管许多人表示怀疑并且不愿吃被视为宠物的锦鲤,但也有一些人说他们以前吃过锦鲤。

这条评论说,“沙巴有很多这样的鱼。我们吃它们就像吃其他的鱼一样。”

这条评论说,“我以前跟沙捞越人在一起的时候吃过这些鱼。它口感很好,肉质柔软。”

这条评论是这样写的:“这些鱼贼好吃,那些不愿意吃的人真是可惜了。锦鲤在淡水鱼里是最美味的。而且历史上,锦鲤还是皇室专供佳肴呢。它价值高所以作为皇室菜肴很合适。我现在家里也养着锦鲤和鲤鱼。如果它们不幸死了,我会把它们煮着吃掉。”

在东马来西亚,吃锦鲤好像很正常(请沙巴、沙捞越和纳闽岛的朋友们在评论区告诉我们这是否属实)。对于我们那些选择不吃锦鲤的人来说这无所谓,不过请不要向吃锦鲤的人传播负面的情绪哦。

你以前吃过锦鲤吗?请在评论区告诉我们。

Talent shortage in Singapore with 8 in 10 employers reporting difficulty in filling roles

Jun 15, 2022 | 🚀 Fathership

In ManpowerGroup Singapore's Q2 Employment Outlook Survey, the company revealed positive sentiments regarding pay increments and bonuses. In the latest edition of this report, for Q3, the sentiments have shifted towards hiring between the July to September 2022 period - labelled as "a record high" in the report.

In brief, Singapore’s net employment outlook (NEO) is at +40%, with the previous "record high" being in Q4 2011 at +31%. Further, employers surveyed in all 11 sectors (i.e. communications & media, manufacturing, and construction) anticipate positive headcount growth in Q3, with not-for-profit employers reporting "strongest" hiring intentions at 67%.

Despite the optimistic outlook, Singapore’s talent shortage level has been found to be at "its highest in 16 years", with more than eight in 10 (84%) employers reporting difficulty in filling roles. This statistic represented a 20% increase from 2021. Prior to that, talent shortage levels were quite high in 2018 at 56%, and in 2010 at 53%. According to the findings, the most difficult-to-fill roles are in restaurants & hotels (97%), other services (89%), and construction (88%).

That said, the "most sought-after" professions are: IT & data, operation & logistics, sales & marketing, manufacturing & production, and customer facing & front office. On top of that, employers are also looking at soft skills such as critical thinking & analysis, creativity & originality, resilience & adaptability, leadership & social influence, and reasoning & problem solving.

"The shift from pandemic to endemic has given companies greater clarity on their business outlooks," explained Linda Teo, Country Manager, ManpowerGroup Singapore. "Employers are ramping up their hiring due to a combination of factors like pent-up demand for manpower, employee attrition, and shortage of workers with the right skillsets."

Dissecting the local numbers

Filtering Singapore's NEO figure, analysts discovered that:

  • More than half (52%) of employers plan to hire;
  • More than one in 10 (12%) of employers expect a staffing decrease;
  • Close to four in 10 (35%) of employers plan to keep workforce levels steady, and
  • Less than five in 10 (2%) of employers are undecided about the hiring/talent scene.

In addition to not-for-profit employers having strong hiring intentions, those in other services (professional, scientific & technical, and administrative & support) similarly have positive intentions at 59%. These employers are then followed by those in banking, finance, insurance & real estate (56%), wholesale & retail trade (50%), and restaurants & hotels (46%).

A global perspective

Of the more than 40,000 employers surveyed across the globe, many are likewise expecting to hire more workers in the Q3 2022. According to findings, the global NEO is at +33% - which revealed hiring intentions to "increase year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter" respectively at +18% and +4%. In terms of per country/territory data, Mexico ranks top with a +59% NEO, while India has a +51%; Mainland China +29%, and Hong Kong +11%.

India's NEO is the strongest in the APAC region for the second consecutive quarter, up 13% since Q2. As for Hong Kong's NEO, it improved by 8% compared to Q2 2022, and by 10% compared to the previous year.

Looking at the hiring/talent scene, analysts discovered that digital roles continue to drive "most demand" with employers in IT & technology (+44%). This is followed by those in banking, finance, insurance & real estate (+38%), construction (33%), and manufacturing (33%).
