Re: How tough it is to get PR in Singapore staying for 6 years

It used to be a given that if you were a Malaysian, you would automatically get your PR once you applied for it. In fact, until recently, the government used to push Malaysians on PR status here to get their citizenship. Reasons due to history and easy assimilation in Singapore, especially as most M...

Re: PR renunciation for 14 years old kid

If your son renounces his PR, than for the foreseeable future, it is better that he does not return to Singapore except as a tourist. The Government has been ratcheting up the screws on this since the 2011 General Election results. It's a vote winner here.

"Just from a student's perspective - I would rather have done NS first, then college second. I'm in a similar situation where I might end up doing NS. Long story, but I already finished college and will be looking to apply to grad school within the next year or two. If I do have to do NS, it will b...

Damn! 6 in spring mattresses, good grub, clean quarters, are you sure its not a hotel? Doesn't sound like any boot camp I know. Great to hear from a combat vet, I always prick up my ears more. Your Nam grunts, well, SF and special units used to train at our Jungle Warfare school in Johore. In fact, ...

Thanks again. Now, the only thing left is to try to convice my wife that it will be ok for our son to join NS. Fraid she's been freaked out a bit by her colleagues at work who keep telling her horror stories about NS accidents and so on. I suppose you know what that is like. Thanks for the tip about...

Hey, thanks for the quick reply and answers. Very useful. Thanks again. Just one last thing, do you think there would be any problem if I enrol my son into a short 1 month military recruit course in Malaysia during his holidays when he is of age before he does his NS? I'm a bit old school and always...
