Re: Receiving telemarketing calls everyday

I’ve suddenly started receiving telemarketing calls from Changi Airport on Viber. Guy with an Indian accent. So far 3 days in a row...

Re: Employment Pass - Tuberculosis

I assume you have been treated for the past active TB? If so, ask for an IGRA assay for latent TB. Negative results would show you do not carry TB and are not a risk to the general population (in terms of TB anyway). Note - if you haven’t been treated for TB, then the IGRA test may be positive, show...

Re: How to lose weight?

Alternatively, pick up some intestinal worms to help absorb excess food.

They’ll take the vital nutrients too, so you will need to eat more of the healthy stuff.

Re: Looking for Anti-Vaccine organization in SG

If you don’t vaccinate your children according to MOH guidelines, then don’t expect to get any reasonable health Insurance coverage for them. Hopefully the parents and children will have record of non-vaccination status for future legal liability of being disease transmission vectors agents to other...

Re: PR on hold since Apr’19

Re: No Vaccination for newborns

There really is no ‘educated choice’ on vaccination. Government MOH policies are intended to limit the unnecessary spread of infectious diseases through vaccination whenever possible. Optional vaccinations can be taken through ‘educated choice’ - such as Influenza, or HPV vaccine for boys. Governmen...

Re: LTVP for parent of Permanent Resident

I got my mother’s LTVP renewed within 2 weeks of completing the application.

That was in August, completed formalities in September. Can be a quick process.

Some of the public Hospitals May have pianos in the lobby - TTSH and CGH for sure.

Re: Robertson Quay dog friendly Serviced Apartment reccomendation please

Your dog will need to go through the recommended veterinary procedures for a smooth entry into Singapore, otherwise it could be a Long and expensive quarantine period.
