It is IMHO the same level of paranoia to expect somebody would be copying your signature as for the shop assistants refusing to accept an unsigned one. Unfortunately, the later, as JR8 already mentioned, violates the CC's T&C. And it is the same level because I don't really believe the signature ge...

How is the PR situation with Australia, though, at the moment? With Singapore almost closing its doors to the biggest PR users/abusers group, I am guessing a lot of that traffic is going to route to Australia? Does Australia have any such racial profiling of PR applications? How is it for IT guys to...

What documents do they need in order to open an account in Singapore. Will just my passport suffice?

You mentioned there arent too many foreigners in your company, so looks like your job can be done easily by locals especially considering you are fresh out of college. I think there lies the problem. Feel sorry for you mate. I would suggest dont waste your time here. See if you can get a job for you...

Re: Best Int'l Bank

Regarding point 2, speaking in Singapore context, Citibank surely has more ATMs than HSBC. Almost every MRT has a Citibank ATM, the same cant be said about HSBC Citibank, ANZ, HSBC, Maybank, SBI Singapore and Standard Chartered all share an ATM network in Singapore. You can use any of them intercha...

AFAIK, the banks in CBP are CS, Barclays Cap, Citi, SCB and DBS. I havent heard of UBS employees being present in CBP until now. Well, for the building maintenance, they always send a notification to ORQ or Suntec. Both ORQ and suntec nice office locations, CS has a branch in ORQ and ORL with lovel...

I think the mistake SMRT did is to take the PRC drivers on as "Employees" on their payroll. They should have just taken them on vendor payroll as other IT companies and banks do. Everyone knows very well that employees are treated like gods while vendor payroll guys are treated like dogs when it com...
