Re: What’s the deal with HDB cats?

I'm not disputing any of that at all. Except for the fact that in a condo or landed property it is your property and you pay for the ability to keep cats as do you on fully landed property. It is your property. That cannot be said about the HDB. They are government owned and the government must cont...

Re: PR for aged parents?

MOCHS, I thought about the one-parent at a time thing as well, but the big difference (hopefully) is the special dispensations that are not published on the ICA website but available for our neighbors across the causeway. Just like the much lower income requirements for Malaysia EP and the extra ben...

Re: Is it easier to apply for a job when already inside Singapore ?

Where are you from? If from a western country it will be very difficult to get a job unless being sent by a parent company you are already working for. Most companies here will no longer provide "Expat" relocation expenses or hardship posting uplifts as this is definitely NOT a hardship posting. The...

Re: PR for aged parents?

Thanks SMS! Guess I will look into the LTVP then. Do you think the older they get the harder it will be to get a LTVP? Reason being I think the need may only come in the next 2-3 years, if we do have kids by then. Just wonder if it would make more sense to apply now or later? Try bringing them in o...

Re: EP application graduation date

Wait until you receive your graduation cert. Or not, but prepared for the additional time you will waste because of lack of patience after you start a volley of correspondence that could cost you a lot of time. Don't be crazy, go get a pizza and relax. Good things come to those who wait and follow t...

Re: Where will you retire?

Back when I was a car owner I lived in a very ulu part of Singapore in Seletar Camp at the end of Jln Kayu. A car was almost a necessity depending on how far inside the camp you lived. There was only one feeder bus that went into the camp and one bus down Jln Kayu so depending on your arrival time, ...

Re: Where will you retire?

My daughter was six and my son 1 year old when I sold both off my cars. that was in 1999. Haven't owned a car since. :cool: And as an American, for all intents and purposes is it's a birthright that comes to fruition at the age of 16! :mrgreen: I always owned at least one car and for various periods...

Re: Where will you retire?

I made the switch from car ownership (2) in 1990 after the COE started in May that year. Haven't looked back since.

Re: PR for aged parents?

Hi all, Would like to hear some thoughts on whether is it realistically possible to gain PR for my aged parents? I am aware there is such a category on the ICA website for aged parents of SC, but my impression is this was pretty much non-existent couple of years back. However given that it's been a...

Re: What’s the deal with HDB cats?

If it's a feral cat, then NEA or a pest control company will come in and catch them and have them neutered and then let them go (can no longer reproduce). But they can still keep rat populations down. However most feral cats here no long hunt mice because stupid do-gooder aunties feed them at night,...

Re: PR for aged parents?

I think, at the moment, there is no viable vehicle to get them PR. However, you can possibly bring them in on LTVPs. But you will have to check with ICA to confirm that possibility.
