Re: July Fly-in for our Eagles?

I will be there. May be my last as I expect to be leaving Singapore in October.

Re: Eagles Spring Fly-in?

Yep, been a great season even though they will not win the EPL title. I got to see one game live this season........wet cold Wednesday night in January and we lost 0-1 to Leicester!

Re: Eagles Spring Fly-in?

Not been around for a while, just came for a look at what is going on lately. I won't make it unfortunately out of the country from 25th April to 27th May.

Re: Bio diesel/natural gas conversion

Note I am not implying the Rover had a carb! The rudimentary system I fitted also worked in cars with carbs. Anyway it's a moot point as the OP most likely has a car with fuel injection.

Re: Bio diesel/natural gas conversion

Big difference between natural gas and bio diesel. Compressed natural gas conversions can be readily done, many taxis in KL and Hong Kong are converted, I think some in Singapore as well. Big tank in trunk, no place to put luggage. Mainly consists of carburetor change out and ignition timing. On a ...

Re: Bringing our little girl here in Singapore from Philippines.

I am married to a Filipina, we have two young daughters and we live in Singapore. We visit Manila a couple of times a year and the only documents we have had to provide on exit are the work passes / dependent passes. You say your daughters dependent pass is already approved but do you have it? If no...

Re: cockroach

24th Floor of a middle aged HDB. Always keep the floors clean no scraps of food left. We tend to use the air con extensively so windows are closed. Sealed the waste pipe for the washing machine with silicon. Fitted draft excluder to the front door. The last measure above seemed to be the most effect...

Re: Air con compressor cleaning

Was not suggesting you rely on the rain to clean the fins. Thought that "waiting until it rains" was so the people in the "23 floors below" would close their windows and take their clothes in before you start spraying your unit. However, this should not be an issue if your balco...

Re: Where can I find good free vpn?

Yes it was tongue in cheek with me being in the Apple camp. Maybe I should have said El Capitan which would be true rather than a joke ;-)

Re: RE: Re: Air con compressor cleaning

Washing from inside out won't work unless you totally dismantle the unit. And I still have scars from the condenser fins. Just vacuum and wash while finding another aircon fellow who will do a complete clean, if needed However despite all cleaning you can never clean it 100%, especially the fan bla...

Re: Air con compressor cleaning

Yep, agree. I would too expect the dirt profile is thicker from outside so showering from outside pushes the dirt deeper and longer way, but I am not going to take the risk of playing with it on the 25th floor unsecured ledge especially in the pouring rain. One point to emphasize and already mentio...

Re: After-school help for child

Although this was initially a pretty pointless dredging up of an old post I would like to post some useful information. We recently discovered our 5 year old is showing signs of mild dyslexia. My advice to anyone in this position in Singapore is to contact the Dyslexia Association of Singapore. They...

Re: Air con compressor cleaning

Is it really designed to take a steady pour of water lateral from its radiator side? I know these units go outdoor but it could be a different case when water pours mostly from above. Basically, I have the same problem but my units on the ledge are reasonably accessible from the yard. Advice from o...

Re: Air con compressor cleaning

Getting real, no one should be out there if the compressors are on the typical ledge with no railing. Even professionals must have safety gear to work in high locations. So, how were you thinking of doing this? Have you checked with the building management for suggestions? If they don't have any go...
