Eye Glasses Lenses Fast

Is there a place near Changi that do an eye exam and make eye glass lenses in 24 hours or less?

Thanks!

SMS - Is it possible to delay the PR application until he is in his mid teens? This way he can make the decision himself.

Sorry, I missed that. And if you make more you still get to keep most of it!

Your housing and utilities are also deductible up to a certain amount. Since you are new to ...

Learned how to have the wallet emptied rapidly? :-k Actually no. In 2 years they only preached on tithing once, and it was made clear that it's not a requirement for Christians (it is for those who practice Judaism though).

Check out New Creation Church. I grew up in church, went to catholic school, and I learned more in 2 years at NCC than the rest of my life.

It's like a master's program in Bible studies.

Thanks. I'll take a trip out there. I tried the 15 or so shops at Katong Shopping Center and they all looked at me like I was nuts.

Printing Shops & Hole Punching

Does anyone know of a print shop that will punch custom holes into paper? I have a 7 ring ledger binder and I can't find anyone that can punch holes in it. The Kinko's / Fedex Office locations in the US all have a drill press that is customizable (so I know it can be done). However, I can't seem to ...
