Re: Forward head posture

I suggest just simply improve your fitness. I found running helps my neck and back muscles. I keep my head up when running.

Re: Wisdom tooth

I am not a dentist and this is not dental advice but I would agree to avoid jaw / orthodontic surgery unless absolutely necessary. Infections in that part of your body can kill surprisingly quickly. On the other hand if it does abscess then you need to get it addressed quickly (i.e. if there is pain).

Re: How can I sell my used car really fast. Time is not on my side. Need to relocate back to home urgently.

Take it back to the dealer you bought it from. IME that's the quickest way. They know what you paid. Also second hand car prices here are simply paper value plus a nominal body value after the first few years. Papervalue can be looked up online. No one gives a toot what you owe on it by the ways so ...

Re: Transferwise do cheap transfers but more important can provide US, UK and Aus bank accounts

I believe Transferwise are MAS "regulated". But yes they will disappear as soon as another better alternative comes along. I've met some of the transferwise people at a function here (AustCham) which I how I got to know about it so they are not entirely virtual.

There are smaller local rental car companies around. Carousell would be a good place to look.

Re: LTVP for German Girlfriend that won't work in Singapore

Do you have any experiences of how the immigration officers react when you leave and come back the same day and do that more or less frequently? Can we extend the visit pass from land border (like to JB) to 90 days as well? Or does that only apply for visit passes given on the airport? ^ this will n...

Re: Is This a Legitimate Job Opportunity?

Nope but my general view is that paying to get a job is a bad idea. Paying to get an accredited certified trade skill that leads to a job may be worthwhile but the two words in front (Accredited, Certified by the appropriate agency for that skill set in the jurisdiction you want to work in) is what ...

Re: R&D tax rebate for a startup

It's not a rebate, it's a deduction firstly and secondly I don't think it can be carried forward so it has zero nett effect for you. It may be useful once you start paying tax (or become liable for tax).
