Re: Best iphone to buy for my little brother?

Isn't it the truth! It has also managed to dumb down the adult population that formerly were able to spell and write complete sentences as well.

Re: Best iphone to buy for my little brother?

If you buy a child in primary school an iphone or any phone he you deserve it if he/she loses it. Too young to have one and they are not allowed in school anyway.

Re: Buy fresh crab

Yeah, but you are better off going to a crab distributer, Jim Food Supplier,(at the pool end of Serangoon Sport Centre right across the side street from the "Crab Party" restaurant) or going to wharves as noted earlier.

Re: Bank Account after renouncing SG-ship

Sadly, this board isn't a mutual masturbation society. We are here to give you the facts as we know them. It's not a feel good society but a place to gain knowledge, even if it goes against what you want to hear. We are always open to new suggestion or facts as they change. It's what we do.

Re: Chances of PR

On the surface, I'd have to say not a chance. I have a problem if you have a law degree and you have been here 7 or 8 years with 3 employers and are still only making 4.2K/mo. Something just doesn't gell.

Little to zero. Without knowing your level, income and achievements/academics, the rest won't do it for you, I'm afraid.

Re: Buy fresh crab

In recent years so does NTUC occasionally (at least the major ones like @ NEX). We also have a Sheng Shiong about 2 km the other direction on Serangoon Nth Ave 5 where they also carry live crabs, prawns, all the time, etc.
