I asked a simple and polite "bloody" question so I could go read further, and I also put the next comment in a separate paragraph for a reason.

I had mine cleaned through them but I did buy them there; I know they get a third-party to clean them so I'm sure would either arrange it for you or give you the contact details. For best results they should be cleaned by hand and dried n...

Just noticed you'll be working in Suntec. My husband works there too and it takes him ten minutes on the number 70 bus that goes down Guillemard Road.

Seriously, it's a great area, full of character, and you could do a lot worse. PM me if you want more honest details.

I wouldn't say it is easy, Plavt. Certainly not straight-forward and, if you go off down the wrong visa track, you can make very costly and time-consuming mistakes.
