Re: Benefits outweigh the risks of mRNA vaccine?

Lisa, our immune system's complexity is extremely hard to fathom. In fact, in terms of sheer system intricacy, the immune system is arguably second only to our brain. Whilst scientists have managed to peel back many layers of complexity and know much more about the immune system's immense interconne...

Re: Good Investment Options for EP holders

Whatever you do, time in the market, as opposed to timing the market. Though that said, today may well be the exception to the rule, given the awful mess fiat is in.

Re: Benefits outweigh the risks of mRNA vaccine?

I believe Abby may be referring to the lack of any sort of track record when it comes to mRNA vaccine use years down the road. Let's face it, short-term, there will always be outliers, side-effects, regardless of what vaccine you use, or indeed any medical treatment you apply in general, tried and t...

Re: Bangkok apartments

Yes, but it also lowers the barrier to a more individualistic lifestyle, which doesn't really fit in with the way the family nucleus is the preferred mode here. So long as people here are acutely aware that their odds of owning a home are way longer as a single than after they've tied the knot, the ...

Re: Buying a HDB or Condominium?

In the past, old shophouses or terraces used to house 10-15 workers. That has changed due to covid. The rules states that it has to be way less, per unit of dwelling. Some demand for additional dwellings there, to satisfy regulators. In the past, 300k Malaysian workers used to cross the border dail...

Re: Which ferry to Batam is best?

Yeah, it's definitely not a bot; I take the ferry to Batam/Bintan all the time and the odds of seeing a roach during the trip are decent. But whilst I know AI is getting better and better, I'm pretty sure that no bot would be aware of this, especially if the post is an attempt to spam/sell shizzle a...

Re: Delta putting a damper on things global

It's the way to go now and of course the gahmen is aware. However, I think they want to have a bit of spare confidence when it comes to hospital capacity/IC/oxygen cases. Once they're sure absolutely no issues are expected on that front, they'll pivot to endemic mode. I'll believe it when I see it....

Re: Delta putting a damper on things global

I am not sure why the elderly do not want to get vaccinated? Isn't worse to contract it without having any protection..? I think the main issue is a lack of education leading to misconceptions. Many elderly are fearful of receiving the vaccine as they worry about side effects or that it is unnatura...

Re: Delta putting a damper on things global

Delta varient seems to be putting a damper on resuming a new normal. Case counts and clusters here seem to mount each day even with an vaccination roll out. Not so sure August is going the way it's being planned. Do you think Singapore will still be phase 2 restrictions come September. USA seeing r...

Re: SJI student fell from great heights

That's a bloody good point, TT. Kitchen tops, wash basins, even doorway intercom systems seem to be lower in Singapore. A little inconvenient but no biggie. But yeah, balcony railings are lower too. People who are taller than average can go over just from the skewed railing/body height equation here...

Re: Watching a movie in the cinema

Mal, do cinemas in the US consistently start their movies 20 minutes later than the announced times, forcing you to sit through a barrage of braincell-murdering commercials?

It's been probably 20 years since I've been in a movie theater here in SG. just wondering.
Bring a big sack of gold. You'll get a shock when you see how much they charge for a movie ticket nowadays.

Re: Dine-in limit

Agree, the psychological down when you feel your gains erode due to these gym closures is a major bummer. Still, first world problem eh. I mean, this should be our biggest problem. Let's face it, it's pretty minor compared to the millions of peeps out there that have it way, way worse. Incidentally,...

Re: Noisy neighbor most nights until 7-8am, what can we do?

There was a case not too long ago, in some heartland HDB, same as yours, i.e. a noise-maker and a noise-makee. It took very, very long, but eventually the noise-maker got what he deserved (booted by the authorities). And thusly, so did the noise-makee (relative peace and quiet). IOW, you need to sti...

Re: Landlord Renewed TA but decided to Sell what to do?

I must be a hopeless cynic, because the way I look at this is, is that the moment the landlord, any landlord, hears that he/she has to share some of his rental $$$, he/she is going to be proportionately less accommodative when it comes to negotiating the rent.
