Re: Everyday items to bring from the US to Singapore

So at any of the Guardian for example, the pharmacy would usually stock those generics? Like what malcontent mentioned in the previous page, you’ll have to go to the bigger Guardian or Watsons in town/Orchard to try your luck. The pharmacies in the neighbourhood malls may or may not have them since...

https://www.lazada.sg/shop-groceries-fruitvegetables-freshvegetables-lettucesaladleaves-mixedsalad/ I just typed in “mixed salad” into Lazada (some shops are linked to RedMart) and these are the results I got. It’s the same stuff that’s sold in the supermarkets. You can ignore the durian results lol...

Re: Navigating quaruntine & LTVP

This post from 3 years ago suggested posting a blank D/E card to the recipient overseas and use that number to start the LTVP application. However, ICA no longer issues a physical D/E card since Mar 2020, and it is replaced with this instead which is available on an app . If you click on the image ...

Re: New Prefix for long term pass holders

https://sg.theasianparent.com/singapore-nric-number-surprising-facts/amp S is the 19th letter of the alphabet for those born in the 1900s. When the new millennium came around, anyone born from 2000 onward had the T prefix. As for why they chose F, maybe ‘cos FIN stands for Foreign Identification Num...

Re: Everyday items to bring from the US to Singapore

Pre-COVID, I got my allergy meds from the pharmacy in a government hospital. Their walk-in counter was open to the public so I did my purchases there. I worked nearby so it was convenient. I did notice the smaller Guardians/Watsons stores don’t carry as much as the hospital. Ever since we wore masks...

Re: Everyday items to bring from the US to Singapore

We haven’t found generics so far Generic loratadine (non-drowsy) and chlorphenamine (drowsy) for allergies is pretty cheap in the pharmacy compared to brand names Zyrtec/Claritin. It always less than $5 for me for about 40 tablets. Don’t look for them on the shelves which always stocks brand names,...

Re: Everyday items to bring from the US to Singapore

They sell the Japanese equivalent of Tide Pods called “Ka” laundry capsules. My husband is American (I’m a local Singaporean) and said it works well from the samples we got. Though we usually use liquid detergent and it’s sufficient. The Tide brand is available here but in liquid form. Bring a unive...

Re: People queuing overnight for sinovac?

They are long known to carry coronaviruses even if it’s not COVID itself.

Just saying bats can carry a ton of stuff without showing symptoms. They are fascinating that way.

Re: People queuing overnight for sinovac?

If this is true, one would expect COVID to be infectious to bats, but it's not. Does Nipah virus not ring a bell? MERS? Marburg virus? Hendra virus? Bats have been well known to carry viruses that doesn’t affect them. That makes them awesome (that immune system!) and scary (they are carriers) at th...

Re: PR APPLICATION CHANCE- Mixed couple

Mate, you need to carefully re-read what you wrote which was why the responses towards you have been unfavourable. I've seen tremendous profiles getting rejected but mediocre ones and older ones being approved. What other way can this be read other than “My friends should be approved but they didn’t...

Re: PR APPLICATION CHANCE- Mixed couple

786, it’s your blanket statement that “ICA does not care about integration because myself and my friends who have tremendous profiles didn’t get PR” is not credible. You and your sample size of friends would be less than 50 compared to the hundreds of people who posted on this forum over the years d...

Re: Does the government consider race when granting PR?

The news only says how many PRs are granted per year , it does not say how many people applied or the breakdown of the race of the applicants/PRs granted. This report states the percentage of citizens and non-residents amongst other things and gives race breakdown for citizens only but not for non-c...

Re: Does the government consider race when granting PR?

There’s the CMIO race quota (Chinese, Malay, Indian, Others) to maintain the social fabric of Singapore. Majority of the quota is allocated to the Chinese, then Malays, followed by Indians, and the smallest percentage goes to Others. So, imagine if you’re in the Others quota and (for example) 1000 P...
