Re: RE: Need advice on GF's SVP (yes, this topic again)

Hi All, Wanted to seek your opinions on the current situation my GF and I are in. My GF was in Singapore in and out since June this year on 90 day SVPs. However, on our return from a short break away in early December, she was pulled aside at ICA clearance. I was there, so I went to speak to the IC...

Re: Alternative job suggestions for foreigner lawyer

I believe the Big 4 accounting firms may be looking at growing their legal professional services arms. Good luck with the transition.

Re: GST return at Changi Airport

Hey All, you cannot claim GST if you have lived here before. So don't ask your friends to come and visit you for some good old shopping in Singapore!!!

GST return at Changi Airport

Hi Forum, I'm trying to help a friend out at the moment. She used to work in Singapore for a few years on both Employment Pass and, more recently, an S Pass. She left her job and Singapore in May - i.e. she resigned and returned her S Pass to move back to her home country. She now came back to Singa...

Question on PR re-entry permit renewal

Hi Forum,

Just wanted to confirm the PR renewal process for holders who work outside of Singapore for a couple of years. Does this have any impact on the re-entry permit renewal approval?

Thanks

Laser hair removal service

Hi Forum, I'm trying to help my gf find a reputable, and decently priced, laser hair removal clinic? Does anyone know of one that they can recommend? All I see are prohibitively expensive ones ($250 up per session) that all cost the same - as usual in Singapore! Much appreciate any pointers you can ...

I've been living in Singapore for quite some time now. When I first got here, I lost 4 kg as my body refused to take the oily cuisine that is typically found throughout the island. This ruled out any local food across all different price points, so I only ate Western/ Japanese and Korean, which is e...

You probably will need to pay a monthly fee in excess of $150 per month for FF Platinum - could be cheaper for new customers though haha I did a trial at True Fitness... they were willing to waive the admin joining fees, but I much prefer the multi-club access I have currently. Gym condos rarely hav...

This is possibly unique to Singapore. I always LOL when I see peoples' faces. They look like the whole weight of the world rests on their shoulders.. yet they're probably thinking what to have for lunch or who they can take a morning Kopi break with. Several other things I noticed here: - Men are ve...

A bit back off topic: for Caucasian mixed couples there is a clear disproportion when it comes to the Caucasian men and women. I believe this would be still in place even if you normalize it (make it related to the total number of C. m and w) for the local population. What do you think is the reaso...

There is a saying "You can remove an Indian out of India, but you cannot remove India from an Indian" :) This is particularly true in Singapore. Anywhere in the world, from what I gather. True. But its much easier in Singapore. For example, rice. Most of south east asia, china, japan etc eat the Th...
