Good money in peeling bananas in Singapore

SINGAPORE - A job advertisement in Singa­pore calling for part-timers to peel bananas for a daily salary of between S$40 and S$50 has received overwhelming response, reported Sin Chew Daily.

The advertisement was shared and "liked" by thousands of netizens on Facebook, with some joking that the Minions from Despicable Me are ready for the job, while some expressed doubt whether the advertisement was genuine.

A reporter from Singaporean daily Lianhe Wanbao called the number in the advertisement and confirmed that it was put up by an owner of a banana fritters (pisang goreng) stall.

The owner, Alan Lee, 41, said he is in need of an assistant as his mother is scheduled to undergo an eye operation in October.
