Re: Rental experience and tips to share with tenants

I think the biggest problem your gf has is you. Everything you have said pertains to both genders and and any mixed up genders as well. Additionally, nobody has a monopoly on pervs. Can be any gender or combinations of genders either single or married, young or old. Methinks you walk around with a c...

Re: PR Chances for Malaysian Male

Yep. Staying for 2 years before applying will just be showing them that you know how to follow rules. That is something Singapore likes. Oppies are persistent, governments don't like them. ;-)

On second thought, go ahead and make a nuisance of yourself. It might be a good learning experience. :-k

Re: how to Terminate Contract ?

Singapore is governed by Singapore law, not 'peens law. Therefore your only recourse is to go to the MOM. How long did you work for this employer? Did you work for them more than two months? If so, if you go to the MOM you may well be charged with collusion with the employer to defraud the MOM by ac...

Re: Employment Pass Online Status Not Showing

Possibly, depending on their own backlog. The quotas on the WPOL sites are only updated on the 2nd work day and the 2nd Saturday of each month. So, it's a possibility that they only update periodically on the status changes of applicants, as we often get posters here who have said that they received...

Re: Employment Pass Online Status Not Showing

When was it supposed to have been applied for? Just before National Day? If so, good possibility they took a 4 day weekend just like I did as Thursday was a holiday, take off Friday and have a 4 days weekend. Might get filed today. If it's been over a week, however, maybe they had a change of heart?...

Re: PR Rejection

Even the good income+education can be side-lined as part of the equation. I just had one of my employees gain his PR. He is a Malaysian SPM holder (N level equivalent) who has worked with me for the past 10 years on a Work Permit. About a year ago, I took him off the WP and put him on a Letter of Co...

Re: WhatsApp group for newly arrived peeps

The fact that it's a UK number if of no consequence when they are selling millions of phone numbers at a go. You reap what you sow.

Re: PR Rejection

Sounds like you are missing something to me. It is simple. Permanent Residence means just that. Permanent. However, as long as you maintain a valid re-entry permit, you can come and go as you please for all intents and purposes (e.g., if you are gone for 4 years and come back during the last year, y...

Re: PR Rejection

Yeah, it would, wouldn't it. Then you all would have to wait longer to see if you can game the system or not. Or if it would even be worth it to try to game the Gahment here. They are getting pretty smart. Oh, PR isn't just for 5 years. It's only the re-entry permit that is for 5 years. You can stay...

Re: Applying for employment pass before giving offer letter

Doesn't matter. Even if you and the employer both signed the employment agreement, if it a position here in Singapore between a Singaporen company and a foreigner, then the contract, while signed, isn't valid until such time as the IPA for the EP has been given. At that point, you are employed for a...

Re: PR application and employment history

You HR probably already knows how to do it. After all, how hard do you think it is? OH, sorry, I see the questions. It just makes me wonder if the Government is lowering their standards if this simple stuff is throwing you a curve ball.
