Re: Trying to conceive via IVF beyond 45 years of age

There are at least two or three countries I can think of within 4 hours of Singapore who will be happy to help take your money and do IVF. I don't consider Singapore to be the leading IVF provider in any way shape or form. Other countries live birth rates from IVF are exceeding Singapore significant...

Re: NS obligations for son

If you want to keep PR you need to keep the son out of the Singapore system completely or bring him into it. He needs to be born and educated overseas with no records of the relationship in Singapore or born here and then apply for PR.

Re: dual citizenship SG woman

There is no risk of criminal charges from what I can tell. One poster here accidentally travelled back to Singapore on her US passport and has been told by ICA she needs to cancel her Singapore citizenship/passport within a certain timeframe. Provided you are careful and don't need your CPF you shou...

Re: Trying to conceive via IVF beyond 45 years of age

No but you'll almost certainly need donor eggs which can be hard to procure here, especially from lower % races.

Re: Ants are driving me mad!!!

The good stuff is no longer available. I think it was based on a now banned chemical. Basically make sure you are absolutely spotless in your cleaning and remove any standing water as well.

Re: Chiropractic or Physiotherapist

Try both. Seriously. Chiros's are good at adjustments to ease pain and physios know what to get you to do to fix issues with muscle degradation etc.

Re: Foreign property mortgages from OCBC or other Singapore bank (USA property specifically)

The other trick is to buy in Singapore and pay down equity ASAP and use a term loan in SGD to pay off or paydown your forex mortgages. Term loans against property run about the same interest as mortgages.

Re: Exchange Program with International Schools

You should reach out direct to the MOE (minstry of education) in Singapore. The local schools have far stronger mandarin programs and are genuinely bilingual whereas in the International schools get about as a far as Ni hao chee bai!

Re: Foreign property mortgages from OCBC or other Singapore bank (USA property specifically)

ANZ/Australia. For USA you'd need to look at Citi / HSBC / BOA and other banks with retail presence in the USA. The given reason being that if they need to hold your title as collateral they need to do it in the USA via a registered bank in USA as the mortgagor and they need to do valuations (and no...

Re: Survey for $10 NTUC Voucher

Note the survey has an error. At around 80% complete when asked to fill in the number of hours in different devices or platforms you cannot have a zero ("-") as the result. Select 1 hr instead for a min. Bad design.
