Re: How much money needed when moving to singapore first time?

Depends how much you are going to be paying for rent?
Travel to and from work will probably cost about $5 max a day depending on where you live
Food is reasonably priced from the supermarket (a pack of 4 chicken breast = $9)

What kind of job are you taking up?

Re: PR Rejected. To appeal or not?

Simply appealing... pretty please... without a change in circumstances, is unlikely to yield a different outcome. I see three negatives. You are too young, you are single, and you are not Chinese... are you Malay? If not, make that a bigger negative. You don't state what your profession is but oddly...

Shipping box of books from Boston to Singapore

Dear Expats,

I'm moving to Singapore and I'd like to ship a box with my textbooks from Boston (USA) to Singapore. I'd like to get some recommendations about carriers and if they are good or not. I don't mind if the box takes a couple of months to arrive if it's cheaper. Thank you! :)
