Re: Why do Singaporeans hate me?!?

I don't really think apartments and dogs go well. If you really want to keep a dog, you better have a nice lawn and a landed house. Singapore doesnt have space for people where is the place for dogs?

Re: US$ Bank Account

Open a brokerage account with Interactive brokers and keep your monies there, invest it in ETFs according to your risk profile. Who keeps money in bank accounts?

Re: For the Roti Lover

There is a joke, when indians marry, the wife looks forward to her new ATM machine and the husband looks forward to his new cook. We(my wife and I) don't fit that stereotype though. I have never ever brought lunch from home, although my previous job my home was near office, I would go home for lunc...

Unless she is a domesticated Indian lady (pardon the pun .. ) As I said, when in my previous place, when one of the i...

Re: REP renewal doubts

Actually OP, I don't think you really need PR, given your credentials, you will move to wherever opportunities come. Chances are very high that those opportunities will most likely be in places that upcoming and developing. Singapore is in sunset mode, so if I were you, I wouldn't do anything out of...

Re: Malaysia on arrival visa

Ditch Malaysia. Ever since they started discriminating between Indians coming from India Vs Indians living in Singapore, for visa free travel, I have ditched them. I would rather go to Indonesia or Hong Kong or other places.

In an effort to improve her traveling habits I found this link. https://www.onebag.com/ It's definitely worth a read. If you can get down to a single small bag it just makes travel so much easier,removes the wa...

Re: Expat Salaries Falling Article

After living here for 8 years, I was looking to retire early for cheap in India. But surprisingly, my job now is much more stable than it ever was. My salary is not very high, yet it is very easy to live frugally in Singapore yet not lose out on quality of life. So now I am not so sure if I would wa...
