OP, UOB has shorter ATM lines and you can use OCBC ATMs too.

Great info. Thanks for the replies.
We've got a familiarisation trip coming up next month, so that will be one of the things I'll ask about.

Sergei82 - yes, may be better to buy bikes in SG.

Hi,
Just wondering if there are any shops that can service old 35mm film cameras. Has anyone got recommendations? I've got an ME Super I'd like to have serviced.

We are considering buying our bikes here in Australia, then have the company shift them over for us as part of the move. I've heard from some already in Singapore that there is no cellar s...
