Re: Police Reports

IMO 9/10 police reports get 'round filed' unless they actually include criminal activity such as drugs, loan sharks or vice or abuse of women. So many of them are just Singaporean's whining about each other. Or people report stolen bicycles which transform into reports of lost bicycles... Welcome t...

Re: Cheating?

Leaving aside whether something is fair or not, there are just rules to be followed and that's it. Rules or not, why is it a criminal matter? Fouling someone on a football pitch does not get one arrested. Oh I forgot, casino operators insist on governments enacting certain pieces of legislation bef...

Re: Cheating?

BTW, you may find watching the Rain Man movie interesting. Which is why I don't understand why card counting is cheating. Isn't that what one's supposed to do, just that some people do it better than others? I mean, you're supposed to remember what's been bid and played when playing bridge in order...

Re: Baby pick up sing accent at pre school

The daughter of an American friend has the same ability with 'American English' vs. 'British English' after living in the UK for a couple of years. You mean 'American English' vs 'English'? Is that Scottish, Welsh, Irish, Cockney or Received Pronunciation when you say English. :lol: All of the abov...

Re: Martial Arts/Wing Chun

Hi everybody. I am considering relocating to Singapore and was hoping someone could give me their view on the local martial arts scene and possibly a recommendation for a Wing Chun school. I expect a lot of good places there due to the vicinity to China etc. Have been practising Wing Chun on and of...

Re: Singapore bank charges
