Couple that ran off with $32m

Possibly convert to diamonds and art…not too difficult to hand carry. Liquidate with some loss… Definitely won’t be carrying a few watches, many countries monitoring those, requiring proof of purchase otherwise heavy taxation for import. Some customs docs now require declaration of gold and derivati...

Re: costs of living

do u guys think all this overthinking about money is bad of health ?? I reckon it depends on how much of it you have and whether it's important or just greed. I'd much rather have good health and enough to survive in an average way. All the money in the world won't help your if your health goes to ...

Re: 34M looking for new friends [emoji3]

Hi Mark and others,

British guy here (BBC to be precise - careful how you Google that)

Been here a while, I also enjoy cycling. Not too easy to hang out with family and regional travel but with C19 easing, more opportunities to come.

Re: The new Great World

Since we are taking toilets, I have set my team a work challenge - to find the dirtiest, grimiest toilet across SEA hospitals… Should be an eye opener for the new, younger members, to see how others live and to understand privilege I think the best toilet view is still Mt Faber cable car station - o...

Re: [Help Needed] Preloved Children's Clothes. Yay or Nay?

We’ve been enjoying hand-me-downs from my niece to both my girls. Saves a lot of effort, only throw out when the elastic is broken, holes or very messy food stains. Mainly buy Children’s clothing new if there is a discount or a real need, so we feel kind of bad the older one tends to get most of the...

Re: costs of living

Do you have health insurance? Is your company providing any? Make sure you cover that angle too.

Re: Any advice on gap years?

BTW, I noticed that some universities classify international students differently. Option one is international = based on where you went to school. Option two is international = not holding US residency. Obviously your residency is what it is, and at any particular school you can only apply under w...

Re: Any advice on gap years?

I think both students and parents attach too much significance to school brands. I know plenty of senior execs at my employer (a Fortune 100) who didn’t go to a brand name school — made absolutely no difference. True for the most part - unfortunately there are some careers where employers only recr...

Re: Keppel Site to have 6,000 HDB flats

Probably the only way to stop hot overseas money snapping up the property?

I presume any private condos there will attract some serious wealth…Govt could whack on 500% stamp duty and they will still sell…

Re: Any advice on gap years?

I took a gap you after my second year at Uni. By that time, I had some sense of what I wanted to do, as well as some idea to enrich my experience above my peers. It was actually an industrial placement - ‘Sandwich year’ in the UK. My Uni wasn’t really receptive to it, but 2 years after I did it, the...

Re: Insurance for Giving Birth

You have to buy such insurance before even conceiving, and will be subject to a manner of genetic tests to determine risk of congenital diseases. We asked years ago when we got our first daughter. Nobody wants to be on the hook for such outcomes….I’ll bet it is quite hard to get now and pretty expen...

Re: Astra Zenica Covid Vaccine; where to get in Sg (EP Holder)?

AZ and other adenovirus vector vaccines were suspected of severe adverse events - blood clots. Thoughts were because of the adenovirus virus backbone used to carry the COVID spike protein was drawing the attention of the immune response - eventually you cannot take any more such vaccines (even if th...
