Re: Can't find spa for lovers

Any Spa Lovers here? Which spas do you patronize in Singapore or around the region? How good are they? I've been to Spa Botanica in Sentosa and Asmara Spas in Bintan. Very shiok! Anyone been there? Most spas here are money laundering outfits run by organized crime with the complicit and corrupt app...

Re: SVP for partner

You'll never get a same sex union approved with you in it as a Singaporean. Your best chance is for your gf to find a job and get an EP. Alternatively find a school and get her a students pass. Forget the expensive branded shit and serviced apartment. Your friend has as much chance staying here as a...

An unregistered sole proprietorship is simply one that has not registered with ACRA. There is no reason to do so.

Re: Whatsapp group for the Expats

WhatsApp groups suck donkey balls. Extremely disruptive to normal use of a mobile phone.

You won't get a dime out of them if you quit. You'll have trouble getting your tax clearance settled as well.

Re: Working remotely on a visitor pass

Op might get away with it for a few months on a SVP except taxes are an issue. And bank accounts.

Re: Premature termination of tenancy agreement from landlord without a breach from Tenants

I think the termination here probably just falls under normal contract law. You could fight it by claiming damages and taking them to the SCT.

Re: Moving to Singapore on dependent visa. Continue to work remotely for company in Australia.

Yes that's how I would do it. Otherwise you'll end up paying Aussie tax. Income tax in Singapore is straight forward. Between April 15 and the cut off date submit a income statement showing what you've earned. Some minor deductions are allowable. As A DP you need not worry about CPF. You need a bank...

Re: Mum was Singaporean citizen

Citizenship via ancestry is only available for infants. You'd need to have been registered within weeks of birth. Furthermore back then it was only available to children of Singapore fathers. Mothers were not included in the constitutional language.

Re: Premature termination of tenancy agreement from landlord without a breach from Tenants

If the TA allows the LL to do so (provide 1 months notice without reason) then you're out of luck. If it doesn't then you can push back but frankly I would cut your losses and leave.

Re: That is why we moved out from Stamford American International School

Absolutely. Look at that campus. They need to squeeze every penny they can out of the parents and try to spend as little on kids as they can.
