Re: REP renewal for retired PR

Although you have no employment income as a retiree, i guess you may well have income from CPF LIFE and other sources. It makes sense that authorities renew REP in that case. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro What other sources? Rental income, Dividends etc wont be counted as a regular source ...

Re: Acne and acne scar cream in singapore

I’ve had random spots arising on my face due to, i think, build up of sweat and dirt picked up on my long distance runs. Like most blokes, i typically don’t use face or body creams. However, i did buy this for my face and it worked really well. Little pricey but you only need to use a little bit. A ...

Re: PR renewal for 50+ Years & Employment

I might be in a not too dissimilar position. Became PR in 2015 under the PTS scheme. REP due for renewal in May 2020. Been living in SG and earning and paying CPF throughout without interruption. Slight chance that i might lose job in December this year. If at the point of renewal i don’t have a job...

Re: Digital front door lock

These work great but only with deadlocks. So if you have just standard unlock and pull handle type locks they don't work. The Yale version is actually a complete replacement of the lock and handle so can work with any door but is a hassle to install. They do work great though. You could add a smart ...

Re: PR Rejection

Yeah, it would, wouldn't it. Then you all would have to wait longer to see if you can game the system or not. Or if it would even be worth it to try to game the Gahment here. They are getting pretty smart. Oh, PR isn't just for 5 years. It's only the re-entry permit that is for 5 years. You can sta...

Re: PR rejection timeline

With so many applicants from india yours may well have just fallen outside the quota whereas your friend was within. It could just be the officer reviewing your application.

Which uni?

Salary?

Holding SGD currency means nothing. You can change it back to something else at any time.

Re: PR rejected. Got the "PR kiss of death"?

In my case it was new employer, won some awards, extra 4 years of residence under my belt (when I applied only had one year) and roughly a 50% increase in monthly base salary due to job change).....

Re: PR rejected. Got the "PR kiss of death"?

There is no such thing as the PR kiss of death. I initially got rejected with the same letter.....until three years later upon me was bestowed thy PR.

Right lads off you go.....

Re: Police Reports

I've been involved with this from a complainant point of view. If a Police report has been filed against you, the officer working on the case will get in touch with you. You won't be able to call them and find out as sometimes they can't allow any tipping off of suspects. Cheers mate, so if someone...

Re: PR Rejection

PR is a stepping stone to citizenship. Accordingly the govt wants a cross section of people : nurses, waiters, teachers, IT etc etc. They can't all be high earning bankers. Chinese, Indians, Malaysians etc all likely to take up citizenship than those who just want to be here as glorified "expats". ...
