Re: Outburst

Suicide is a selfish act. It's also an act where the person assumes they wholly own their body. They don't - so many people have contributed to them over their life. It's not their life to take. I am fairly sure the folk don't commit suicide for fun. The folks who "contributed" are probab...

Re: Is HDB a prepaid flat rental or an asset?

Re: Need advice for my REP renewal

At least ICA are giving you a chance. This means they haven't written you off for PR. Good info to know.

Re: Don't want to renounce Singapore citizenship

He avoids Singapore as he has a warrant for arrest here under some trumped up claims. Theoretically he could enter and leave on his Sing PP. I will ask him if he has renewed it. He resides in a nearby country.

Re: My Singapore PR REP got rejected

If you only paid CPF and taxes for the total of two years for the ten you had PR then that may be an issue. Why do you want PR if you're not living in Singapore?

Re: Don't want to renounce Singapore citizenship

Probably the minister of home affairs. Retiring here is no piece of cake. Most likely your kids an grandkids will be in the USA... I see how it pulls at your heart but you might have to let this one go. I can't see the MHA making an exception for you as it causes all sorts of issues and they've been...

Re: ENDLESS OPERATION FOR PUS FOUND IN LEG

He might have a super bug (antibiotic resistant infection). Also his circulation and general immunity are probably greatly compromised. Diabetes does it's damage over many years... not just in one week.

Re: Don't want to renounce Singapore citizenship

You could choose to delay (i.e. ignore ICA). At some point ICA needs either the minister or a court to sign off on revoking your citizenship, that will take a few months to a few years at a rough guess. I'm really curious to know how ICA discovered you were applying for US citizenship; did you stupi...

Re: Math teacher looking for teaching position on a LTVP

Re: Dual citizenship

Are you a woman? If so no one REALLY cares.... Just don't go around Singapore flouting your dual citizenship.

IF you're a man you're shit out of luck but I assume you can't be otherwise you'd have NS issues.
