"Jobsdb" or "jobstreet" success stories?

I'm starting a very heavy job search and while I am consulting any headhunter I can find that deals with engineering and management, do job search websites actually lead to interviews or employment? :???: Please share your success stories here? Just so you know, I'm not looking for advice. I only wa...

Re: Update about my PR application

After exactly 2 months of applying I get a letter to submit full CV of mine and my wife's family members. While we were opening the letter my heart was racing like a ferrari, (it still is as I write this) hoping that it is not the dreaded one line rejection letter. Not treating this as a positive o...

Football league (American football for non-yanks) for adults

Is there or should there be a football league for adults? Full pads or flag, I don't care. I would like to condition my body again for the sport I love to play.

Timberland or Redwing possibly. My shoes are Timberland, I was hoping to be sure the carried the laces I needed before I made a special trip.

On the subject, I'm having trouble locating a particular type of shoe lace for my shoes. I need brown, heavy duty boot laces. 60-70 cm (24-28 in) is the length. Currently I'm just looking around when I go out, but I'm not really wanting to make it an island wide expedition just to find shoe laces. I...

What "Singlish" has crept into your vocabulary?

Living in Singapore, you can't help but be totally immersed in the local culture. I drink Tiger beer on occasion, get extra chili sauce for my chicken rice, drink my kopi-o kosong. There are many aspects of the country that has become part of my daily life. The part that scares me is local language ...

When I was stationed here 10 years ago there was a place on boat quay called Tomorrow's. It was the kind of place you mentioned. I would go there most nights and drink until everyone sounded good. My greatest memory though was that it was the location I proposed to my wife, but alas the place is no ...

It wouldn't be so bad if do many people wouldn't have almost run over my toddler. They expect him to move. Not all of them, but enough to annoy me. I only got angry when one of them hit me, but it turned to laughter when after hitting me the guy wrecked. That's a valid complaint then. But now, you ...

Carne Asada?

I used to live in San Diego, and anybody whose lived there will tell you it has some of the best Mexican food in the world. I'm looking for a place that doesn't just serve Mexican food, but that serves Carne Asada burritos. For those of you that enjoy culinary prowess, I do have a recipe for carne a...
