Re: Singapore elderly?

My wife and I are in our 70's. We still take care of my Invalid MiL with the help of a Burmese Domestic helper (which we only just got 1 year ago). My wife is going to be unable to walk in a year or so at the rate things are going. But we've never considered putting either her mother or her father ...

Re: Applying PR for the 4th time

I think you should keep swinging at it. My impression is the gates are opening again. The touted 6MM pop'n by GE2020 is not far off. If the opposition frighten the PAP again the gates will slam shut. They got a sympathy vote from LKY's death last time but your average Sinkie is really pissed off no...

Re: Any good suggestion for a unique holiday vacation for my family?

If you are looking at somewhere with sunshine, got tanned, relaxed and have intimate time with your family, I like to recommend you to Redang Island. It's very relaxing, the beach is nice and the water is clean. You can go snorkeling or jungle trekking. If you are lucky, you can even see turtles or...

Re: Apply again

There are good reasons to take up SC citizenship. It is a tax haven. ANZ will tax you to death.

Re: One child v/s two

I am about to have my 4th :o Never liked the idea of just one child. They get bored and lonely quite easily and are far more demanding of your time. I rarely see my kids unless they are hungry or need emotional support or just want to hang out with me. They are fiercely independent and have great c...

Re: Ltvp for parent of PR urgent help!

Medical expenses in Singapore are very high and Indians are usually cheapos and don't buy insurance. Maybe insurance in Singapore doesn't even cover old people. So maybe the govt doesn't want hospitals in Singapore to be loaded with old foreigners who don't have enough money to pay for the expenses....

Re: Street trees disappearing

I have moved to Jurong last couple of months back, after spending ages in Tampines. This part of the island is very green, full of trees and water, I stay in Lakeside. However there are lots of mosquitoes and ants in our house. The area itself is very nice, a different experience from the east. Peop...

Re: The Donald ... Getting stuff Done!!!

So I thought US is a democracy. How can then 1 madman using Twitter dictate whatever he wants from his hips? Xi the real dictator looks more democratic in comparison
