Re: How does CPF life and cancelling PR work?

From my insurance advisor: 1) Upon reaching age 55, CPF board will set up a retirement account (RA) for you up to the full retirement sum (FRS) of $176,000 (current sum). The money comes from your special account (SA) and ordinary account (OA) (if the SA is insufficient to meet the FRS. The FRS in t...

Re: House renting with a power of attorney

Do you have the owners NRIC? It sounds as though the rental is authorised and legit but the primary issue here is if you need to sue the owner (for return of deposit for example) you need to know who to sue and it sounds like they're trying to hide that. It's a renters market so if they don't agree ...

Re: Buying GoPro

I'd buy a chinese copy online. Probably 1/4 of the price and almost as good. The gopro inventor has made plenty of money already.

Re: Architects in Singapore

Most of the architects I've known in Singapore have departed for other locales so that sounds about right. The Unis here have pumped out a lot of grads as well over the last few decades so I suspect the market is a bit saturated.

Re: Overseas Family School?

Very disappointed with the school. The 8th grade girls seem to be a pack of mean horrible drama queens. Worse, the school has done nothing effective to stop the bullying problem currently going on. IT's a FOR PROFIT school, not a school for education. I am not sure which fat cat owns it but he/they...

Re: Gynaecologist in singapore

You should delete the post beatrice or perhaps anonymise it. Defamation and slander are serious issues in Singapore. The appropriate place to lodge a complaint is with the Singapore Medical Council and the Ministry of Health.

Re: DP application with very old criminal conviction

Singapore has a fairly progressive view on these matters surprisingly. They believe far more in rehabilitation than life long punitive measures... except for drug traffickers.

Re: Best bank to get interest on savings account ?

Yes to both. It makes sense if your ultimate goal is to hold USD (which mine is) as you can cash out with a USD draft at the end of the TD.

Re: DP application with very old criminal conviction

I would disclose it. I doubt it will cause issues. Not disclosing it and have it turn up will be far worse.

Re: Singapore PR chances based on scheme

You should apply under family scheme. You will get it eventually unless there is a real issue in your background that you've not disclosed.
