Re: Kim Jong Un - Certainly looking for attention!

Two missiles over Japan in one day!! And Drumpf won't do nothing? Surgical strike ? I'm no fan of Steve Bannon but he is right about this. Bannon said, “There’s no military solution here; they got us. Until somebody solves the part of the equation that shows me that 10 million people in Seoul don’t...

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 w...

Re: Agent is asking brokerage after we moved in

Take a copy of the invoice. If he asks for it back return the copy, not the original. This was cleared up a few years back. LL pays commission, not the tenant.

Re: Buy Motorcycle Engine from EBay

Re: Expat Salaries Falling Article

My wife is American too, but I think I'd be keener to live over there than she would! Tell me about it. I'm back in the USA after 8 years in Singapore. Unfortunately, I am in Trumpistan, aka, Texas. I'd much rather be somewhere else. But where? On the coast you get hurricanes. In the mountains, you...

You could incorporate a Pte Ltd company in Singapore and get a company number but you'll need a Singapore resident director. Alternatively look for 'Payroll Companies' - they act as ...

If you have to close windows to control noise levels it's not a habitable home.

Re: Expat Salaries Falling Article

Once my job is gone I have no intention of looking for another in Singapore. It's a unicorn now - even though it's a localized deal it's a good salary with car allowance at about what twice they would pay a local yokel. I'll move on, I'm literally just waiting now for a redundancy package - probably...
