Re: Vietnamese food

Long Phung, be prepared to Q and wait.

Dim sum, being Cantonese, is best eaten at HK eateries such as Imperial Treasure. I like the Orchard ION outlet best.

Re: REP 2020

I am not sure how much the gahmen sways to public opinion (kopitiam uncles mainly)

But one of the points highlighted are that long timer PRs (especially Malaysian Chinese), do not convert despite being here for 20-30 years.

And then this was raised in parliament last month.

This was floated in 2010. No traction then. I'm just speculating, but you might be a prime candidate for citizenship.

Re: PR Application advise, Bad or Good please come

Since I was rejected twice back then. What you guys thoughts for now? Since I’m already working while studying at the same time Theoretically 1. Uni grads have better chances than poly grads 2. Malaysian Chinese have better chances than other races 3. Younger folks have better chances as well So, i...

Re: Citizenship application Outcome standing for over 2 years

Just some quick lookup via data.gov.sg. The Indian PR stock is around 180k. [ard 440k Indian residents- ard 260k Indian citizens]. You can make a rough guess, how many of the 180k would be applying for citizenship. My rough guesstimate is about be 2-3k of citizenships granted to Indians per year. [2...

Re: Citizenship application Outcome standing for over 2 years

Well, keep your optimism low.

Re: Citizenship application Outcome standing for over 2 years

And this is exactly why, a lot of Sg public policy is viewed through the ethnic lens, ie Racial Quotas for PR/Citizenships. And probably a GCE A' level student can articulate this just as well. Racial discontent can spread like wildfire and it's a numbers game, both in probability and size of each r...

Re: Donald Trump and First Lady has Covid19

Am sure as hell that he talks up the stock market all the time. And of course, he’s doing this charade to keep his re election hopes alive. Naturally at the expense of others He doesn't give a shit about the stock market. Dropped 600 points today due to his ill-advised actions. https://www.cnn.com/...
