Lim Chee OnnI was very shocked when I read this article from the Straits Times that CEO’s in Singapore has big salaries as much as 9 million SGD a year. This was brought to the strong growth of economy last year. CEO’s have increased their salaries as much as 150%.

Here are the top 10 executives listed by the Straits Times:
