As a result her hair is completely tangled together and in need of detangling by somebody that knows what he/she is doing. Does anybody know of a barbershop that ...

Re: Cheap alcohol?

There are some shops in Little India/ Serangoon Road that sell Alcohol cheaper than in the supermarkets. The cheapest one (I think) is a shop operated by a Chinese man halfway between Little India MRT station and Ferrer park.

Re: Where to learn Reflexology and thai massage?

I too would like to take a massage course. Preferably Sports massage or Body massage.

Does anybody have a good recommendation where to do this without breaking the bank? Preferably with a recognised certificate or diploma at the end (in that case more expensive naturally :wink: ).

Re: Wedding venue, affordable ideas needed!

Thank you for the suggestions! In the end the wedding was less "affordable" than projected, but the results were amazing.

Re: 6 Friends coming over for a wedding, affordable sleeping places?

Have you tried hostels? I use an app called Booking.com. It often has specials in Sg. Worth a look. Thank you fro your suggestion. I had thought of hostels and that would be my last resort as I think they will prefer a bit more privacy/better beds. Unless the Hostel has private rooms and better tha...

6 Friends coming over for a wedding, affordable sleeping places?

I was hoping to get some help with an issue. I have (expectedly) 6 male friends coming over for a wedding. They will be in Singapore for roughly 5 days. As most hotels tend to be expensive this is not the best option. Most service apartments require a minimum of 6 months to be rented so that option ...

Re: Wedding venue, affordable ideas needed!

Thank you all for your suggestions. I have just booked a venue. Unfortunately it was not a cheap one, but you pay for what you get. I was just not happy with any potential relatively cheap venues: there are just no nice cheap venues in Singapore. So thank you for all the suggestions. Haha like I sa...

Re: Dutch Eredivisie (football) - Where to watch?

To be honest, I do not know if you need to be a member to have a drink there. The matches are usually on a Friday evening, Saturday evening and Sunday throughout the day (12.00, 14.30 and 16.45 Dutch time (so plus 6 or 7 hours depending on winter or summer time). I was hoping to watch some of those ...

Re: Dutch Eredivisie (football) - Where to watch?

Thank you @Barnsley for your suggestion. I'm not a member of the Dutch Club so that might not be applicable for me.

And because it is so difficult to find a bar that shows it, I am posting here asking for suggestions...;)

Tailor needed for pants for a jaquet / morning coat

Hi All, I'm looking for a good tailor to have new pants made for a jaquet / morning coat. Traditionally those pants are made of thick wool and very unflattering. As I'm planning to get married next year, I was hoping to have a new/more stylish one made. Most tailors can make a Tuxedo / Black tie or ...

Re: Field Hockey - new Players Wanted

Hi Guys, I have not been playing Hockey in some years but want to pick it up again. It has been some years since I played and I'm not as fit as I think/used to be anymore. So level wise, not too high.

Does anybody have a good idea on how to join a team or where?
Thanks in advance.

Re: Wedding venue, affordable ideas needed!

Weddings are always expensive. The more requirement you have about class and style, the more you have to pay. The more unconventional you want, the more effort, time and money you have to put in. In any event preparation, there is always a rule - you can only choose to sacrifice one from these thre...
