Re: Motorised curtains

I can't recommend a local shop since I'm in the USA. However, I can tell you that I installed Bali motorized curtains and they have worked very well over the last 4 years. Hunter blinds are the best... the most quiet for sure... but also twice as much as Bali. I chose Bali also because I could get m...

Re: Home-based business as an EP holder

Besides what SMS said about EP's (you can't do this), there are many other permits you would need to get for an F&B business IF you were legally qualified to create and run it.

Re: Gas hob reviews requested

At the risk of asking the obvious... you do have the correct setup for the gas you are using? Natural gas, aka "city gas", aka the low pressure gas that is piped into your house requires different orifices than tanked gas, aka, propane gas. A natural gas hob will not work on propane, and a propane h...

Re: AirBnB; tourist can rent for minimum 3 months?

Interesting article. Last time I was in Singapore, I rented from an AirBnB host. It was a shop house. All the bottom units were businesses. All the top floors were rental units for our host. Nobody lived there permanently. It would seem to me that this doesn't qualify as a residence... then again, i...

Re: New South African COVID Variant

Two reasons. Anti-vaxxers of every stripe make it hard to reach a high enough level of herd immunity. And rich countries that are too cheap to provide vaccines to poor countries ensure that there will be vast reservoirs of Covid, just waiting to mutate into the rest of the global population.

Re: Flash mob thefts

Yet another consequence of profound economic inequality. Sadly it’s not inequality that’s the problem, most of the perps drive off, key word drive. The problem is that the legal system enables petty crime. Sure, some of them might have cars... but I can guarantee you that people who have enough don...

Interesting! These financial advisors do not even have any proper qualifications but sure they know how to scheme!
The farther away it is from Singapore, the worse the deal will be. That Scottish widows and orphans fund at 13 percent won't look quite as shiny up close.

So... you are neither "permanent" nor "resident", is that right? Why would you need PR?

Re: Misleading claims by Immigration Consultancies for PR/SC Applications

I've had a few people add me on LinkedIn and then try to set up meetings to push services such as financial planning, investment, insurance and so called PR consulting 🙄 There is an active expat business card collection network in Singapore. You know that business card you gave to the attractive wa...

Re: FDW called MOM and complaint

Generalization works to a certain degree is what I said. No! Generalization does NOT work to a "certain degree". Upon which specific individual are you going to heap your generalizations?

Re: FDW called MOM and complaint

Tbh generalizations work to a certain degree. Especially with reference to the bell curve, and outliers being at the ends of either tails. You are stereotyping. You assume that because some of a given class have a certain attribute, then all must have it. This is bigotry. This is racism. And it is ...

Re: FDW called MOM and complaint

You are guilty of maid abuse. Why didn't you give her a bank account. You are not permitting her to manage her own financial affairs, and MoM specifically requires that maids have control over their own finances. Why do you cut off internet? She is an adult and can make her own decisions about what ...

It doesn't matter where your income is sourced from. It doesn't matter what bank it is paid into. It doesn't matter what currency it is paid in.
