Re: PR Application

You can hijack us anytime. And surprisingly I am adjusting reasonably well to retirement. Wife keeps asking if I am going to work part time, I ask her where do I have the time? I'm busier now than when I was working, just using different tools now. :mrgreen:

Re: On EP, jobless for second time in 5 months

It shouldn't, but that's not saying it won't. Don't really, know. After you apply, let us know of the outcome.

Re: Latest policy on duration of a renewed S pass?

You can if you want to chance it. But if I were you, I'd just be thankful it was renewed for 3+ and let sleeping dogs lie, if you get my drift.

Re: Question about obtaining SC by descent and NS

Yeah, you can always do that. And it's probably preferable that way. However, he might be up against a bit of government bias if he should ever want to work in Singapore as the government has a mighty long memory. If he's found out to have a Singaporean citizen parent (who's still holding on to thei...

Re: On EP, jobless for second time in 5 months

Let's put it this way, if you are applying for another position in Singapore, you better as the employer will find out anyway when they apply for your next work pass. When that happens, guess what.

Re: please suggest thanks

I suggest you apply, otherwise you will never know. Hearsay sometimes is just that. Why one person is rejected and another is approved is because no two people have exactly the same profile, regardless of what you brethren from the subcontinent think or say.

Re: Credit card application for DP holder + no SG income

I know this sucks, but what with FATCA and other bullshit due to financial shenanigans worldwide, you may ends up stuck with a supplementary card on your spouses CC seeing you are still here as a Dependent and not on an Employment Pass of your own.

Re: Maggi "Hot Heads" 2X noodles

I'm a chilli eater and worked and ate in Indonesia for 14 years. I don't have much problem with hot food, but Jerry's level 5's were all I could handle (over the 4th of July weekend last week). Just glad it was a cool drizzly day. They also have a level 6 but I've not tried them as I'm not a tuned u...

Re: [Guide] PR Approved - now what?

Guys, as for the photo, the safest bet is to take at the ICA building level 1 as I got rejected by the officer saying that the photo I take from the photo kiosk is too glossy. They only accept matte surface. I believe that they have removed the photo machine at the ICA building recently. You may wa...

Re: How To Become Cabin Crew

"I" did? "I"'ve not be in the US for 36 years now, aside from 2 or 3 weeks every 2 or 3 years. (not counting an 11 year gap between 84 & 95.) I can afford a computer, so that makes me a bigger cock-up? I'll have to remember that. Thanks! :-k #-o :wink:

Re: EP Overstay

It will either be renewed in time or you will have to exit Singapore and come back.

How come your employer didn't send you down to get the new one? Something fishy here.
