Good sake bar?

Hi folks,

Any recommendations for sake bars?

Happy to try out either hole-in-the-wall or splurge occasionally in some upscale joint.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Where to Stay in Singapore?

Check out the online property listing sites, especially if you are planning to rent out an entire place. Not so great for room shares though. I used them when I first arrived, the listed prices are pretty true to market, but don't be shy to haggle :) I can pm you the URL since I can't post it on the...

Google voice/hangout works pretty well for me.

Re: Tanglin or Dulwich?

Both are similar in a lot of ways. Location might be the deal breaker?

Re: Used Car Price

It's calculated on the paper value (i.e. remaning CPF and PARF rebate value) plus a number for the value of the body (which typically reduced to almost nothing for those brands as they get older) plus 'coffeee money'. It really helps if you can find out the 'scrap (paper) value' or even estimate it...

Re: Converting foreign driving licence for SG PR

I know people who converted their DL after 5-7 years in Singapore with no questions asked. Besides, the police is neither able to verify whether somebody drives occasionally abroad nor if s/he drove at all after passing the original test XXy earlier. This, even for converting the DL within the 12m ...

Re: effective treatment for uneven skin color and spots?

I looked for this but price is very different where I called. Some places 200+ and some less than 150. I am worried some might be fake :-o :-o Do you know the best place to get this product? Are there a lot of price variations for similar products? Not familiar with this market, whether the segment...

If someone is eager to pay only $100 for a phone that is $300 in the same building, cannot complain to find it is worth less than $50 :)

Re: Storage Units

There are full-services gigs who will collect your stuff and stack into temp storage, and there are DIY ones where you simply rent a space and manage everything yourself. Try googling for either.

Cheers

car workshop recommendations

I need to repair some suspension issues on my 8-year old European car.

Does anyone know some honest repair workshops? Ideally in eastern Singapore.

Thanks.
