Re: Is there a RETIREMENT AGE in Singapore?

If they terminate you without a valid, provable reason, you can take them to court (MOM Court - no lawyers allowed). It's possible to get 1 month's pay for each full year of service employed. I had to go to the court on one occasion for my old company. I already told the owner the consequences if it...

Re: PR abuse

I don't think PR abuse is a thing. The government totally controls who is given PR and SC and can remove PR for any reason (they don't do this though except for criminals and those who are doing something against public policy such as the striking pilots and the academic who is influencing for a fo...

Re: PR approval chances 2022

If you try to apply using the PTS scheme you will likely get rejected, even if you have the baby tagged on your application. You will probably be rejected based on quota issues at the very least. You need to apply under the Family Ties scheme with the husband acting as the sponsor. That way you have...

Re: PR approval chances 2022

We’ve since bought an appartment (closing in June) and are considering re appealing post transaction completion (we’ll be moving in and staying there as well). The other option we’re considering is for me to apply through the PTS. Any recommendation from the experts here on how best to approach thi...

Re: Online grocery

My favorite supermarket is closed up now. I used to always shop at Yaohan Thompson Plaza. Decent prices and excellent quality & variety. The NTUC there also not bad but too far away now that I've gone carless for the last 25 years. Some NTUC's like the one down Orchard area are good but prices sligh...

Re: Online grocery

Bit of a reach but I occasionally use the one at Hougang 1 but size & selection wise much of the same. It's only 1 km away but not as useful as the rest of the stores in there aren't of much use. NEX has a better selection/mix of other useful places as well. I also have a neighbourhood NTUC about 5 ...

Re: Online grocery

Fresh produce/meats/poultry/seafood always buy fresh. Unless it is processed and frozen. I prefer fresh and the ability to see what I am actually buying.

Re: Online grocery

NYY1, obvious you have never shopped at the NTUC Fair Price @ NEX. Fresh produce if edible at all is still abysmal at best. Cold Storage in the basement had better fresh produce but at 2x the price but not the selection. In today world of inflation, I still have to continue to shop at FairPrice and ...

Re: Pending PR application under Spouse scheme but asked if I'd like to apply under own merits

If one is on a work visa and married to a SCG / SPR it is usually better to apply for PR under the Family Ties scheme. This was told to me by the Officer who ultimately gave me my PR back in '95 (he told me this at an SICC Christmas function at the clubhouse 10 years later (he actually remembered me...

Re: Casual Saturday/Sunday team looking for players

Did you bother to email the guy? He's only made one post but left email contact so I rather doubt he follows the forum regularly as he only registered the same day as he posted and hasn't posted since. :-k :roll:

Re: PR APPROVAL … sharing my experience

So, as there is absolutely continuity on the outcomes, what you actually are doing is an exercise guaranteed to keep you stressed out. Speculation only generates stresses. We have enough issues in the world today to get upset on how long or little somebody else got or didn't get PR when you do not k...

Re: PR APPROVAL … sharing my experience

5 years and 10 years in my case. Think it makes a difference? There is NO one point that will guarantee PR. It is a cumulation of many various points. Each item is given different weights but what the weightage is is unknown outside the inner circle of ICA. Also on EP both times.
