Re: oildude's new orange cat

We have a replacement. This is "Kahtul" - a ditch kitten one of my wife's students rescued and bottle fed.

Re: bankruptcy travel

IF you actually were declared bankrupt by a court in Singapore then yes, you have a problem. Bankrupt persons are not meant to travel (out of Singapore) without permission of the court's assignee. IF you were declared bankrupt in absentia then you will almost certainly have some questions from immig...

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

Maybe. There was an interesting article today talking about some of the older estates becoming ghost towns as their leases get close to expiry. Personally I think this whole mess is unfixable without something radical such as a lease extension.

8 years.


Well I don't see this as impossible. It's always been clear that if you're employed by a Singapore LE you can probably renew your REP if you're offically posted overseas provided your CPF is paid etc...

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: 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
