Re: SG dollar limit in flight to Singapore

I like Wise also. I do all my invoicing as a freelance via my Wise accounts. We tease another friend Peter K that he is the reason Wise brought in transfer limits in Singapore. He transferred $3MM on wise from GBP to AUD! MAS brought in limits almost immediately afterwards (it was a house sale in th...

Re: SG dollar limit in flight to Singapore

It's put in place as a catch all Mal (for drug smugglers etc). My good friend Paul was the first ever case prosecuted in Australia for a similar law when he stupidly took back all his USD offshore pay from Singapore in 1989. All his friends were dragged into it as well as the cops photocopied his ad...

Re: Has MOM/TAFEP ever helped foreigners?

Man on woman bullying will be taken seriously. Nothing else unless a seizable offense.

Re: Has MOM/TAFEP ever helped foreigners?

No. You might have some success speaking to a solicitor. Unless this is actual illegal acts such as sexual harassment bullying is not frowned upon.

Re: i found Cats need a home - Cats

You idiot. You've been picking up what I suspect are "community owned" cats which are common here and not strays! They are usually fed by members of the public. I've only rarely seen real strays here and they are typically very young kittens.

Re: China Eastern plane deliberately downed?

Most planes don't go straight down unless commanded to (i.e. pushed down - with the exception of a spin but then more modern planes have spin correction) so most of the time when you see these events (like the Silk Air flight, the Egypt Air flight off US) it's a suicidal pilot.

Re: Shooting at US grocery stores

I have friends in Switzerland. That thing above SMS is not really the exact truth. My friends didn't have an AR in the house (and they had boys in national service at home still). I can't recall if it was a voluntary thing but I go the impression that it is not that common now to keep the AR at home...

Re: Applying from outside vs inside Singapore

I was looking for another job while I was already working in Singapore and I had a feeling it doesn't really make anything easier... All initial interviews are online anyway. Of course my situation and position was different. But in general, the problem is more about getting the EP, not relocating....

That's a good idea on using NETS.
A better idea to avoid OT after dark. No respectable non-diver should be in there after dark.

I've found good sets second hand (often imported by expats who don't want to take them to their next posting).

Re: Retrieve deleted whatsapp

No it's almost impossible. There are some toolkits that claim to be able to do it but I've never had any success.
