Re: Chances of citizenship approval

Probably a closet racist, hence the not so subtle nick, thinking he's better than the Southern/other Indians.

Re: Overstayed, how serious?

Me? Personally, I wouldn't bet on it. But then I'm not a gambler. He might get lucky. He might be made a example of. Only time will tell if he tries. It's about the only way he's going to find out as we do not have access to the inner working of either ICA or MOM. Just anecdotal evidence collect via...

Re: Chances of citizenship approval

Probably the odds are better, but whether that means successful or not is another story. Before odds maybe only 30%, now maybe 50%, but no guarantees. Have seen it go well over 12 months and be approved and also seen them being rejected. There is just no telling. It's rough as you cannot really wrig...

Re: Indian International School

^^^^^^^^^^^^ Sia - how can you know anything about this school when you are posting from a Bulgarian IP address?

Re: Overstayed, how serious?

If he does that, surely die-die. Then they will know he overstayed AND was working illegally as well.

Re: Any Eagles up for a gathering in October?

I tried tapatalk 2 times, deleted the stupid app 2 times as well. I don't like it, and refuse to use it. If I don't have somebody's contact via phone or Whatsapp, fergeddit. Of course, with my new phone, the real estate is almost big enough that I can use a browser (almost) as long as I'm sitting do...

Re: Any Eagles up for a gathering in October?

Scooby, you are right. It's difficult anymore to get up a quorum let alone a full scrum. Those of us that are left are often outstation. Only a few like me who are stuck here and no longer part of the jetsetting group. MOM has surely decimated our group, that's for sure! :x

Re: Any Eagles up for a gathering in October?

As mentioned, I sprained my left ankle on the 1st of Oct. I just got off the crutches Thursday and though maybe I could make it. I drove home, then walked to the bus stop and got to NEX/Serangoon Station but by the time I got to the MRT itself, my ankle was already protesting. I debated for a while ...

Re: Any Eagles up for a gathering in October?

Looks like I'm in for the meetup this evening. I went without crutches yesterday and so far today, feeling better today so I reckon I'll give'r a try! Hopefully will reach by 8 pm as I don't drink & drive so I'll have to go home and then take the MRT down to Buona Vista.

Re: Please help

For normal people the levy is a lot higher. As I said, my wife & I are antiquities and the maid is to take care of an even older antique (90+) and a 9 year old. As we are old we are given a special levy rate of a flat $60/mo.

Re: HELP NEEDED - Refused Entry to Singapore - Can I Still Enter?

I reckon OP is still holding something back with the information she's given us. What was the actual reason claimed that OP was not allowed entry? [-X

Re: Rejected S-Pass after a recent Entry Refusal case

Sounds like you are in a leaky boat without a pump. My suggestion is try to find something in Indonsia as MOM has crossed you off the acceptable least. Why, I have no idea, but there is something we are not being told, I'm pretty sure. :-k
