Re: Dine-in limit

More than the dine in limit, what bugs me is the gym restrictions. That is extremely frustrating. Yes i feel gyms may increase membership fee beyond a certain point due to actual and potential revenue loss More than the fear that my gym might increase the fee is the frustration of a regular lifter....

Agree. My boxing studio now has a mask-on policy. It’s hard to breathe without the masks on, with the masks on its nearly impossible.

Re: Buying a HDB or Condominium?

You’d have to be more specific with your questions. The two are not apples to apples, its impossible to compare. It all depends on what you value, whether thats price or privacy or facilities. If you prefer a more private estate with facilities and amenities, condos are a much better option. Of cour...

Re: Watching a movie in the cinema

If a couple were to go to the movies, can they sit together or have to maintain 1 mtr distancing there as well? Based on this seating arrangement in GV all seats are couple seats with 3-4 seats used as safe distance seats https://www.gv.com.sg/GVSeatSelection#/cinemaId/11/filmCode/6782/showDate/23-...

It's been probably 20 years since I've been in a movie theater here in SG. just wondering.
Bring a big sack of gold. You'll get a shock when you see how much they charge for a movie ticket nowadays.
Pricing is ridiculous. Upwards of $40, and thats not even including snacks or drinks.

Re: HK or Singapore

South Korea and Japan are not bad options, but unfortunately they’ve handled the COVID crisis poorly, especially in comparison to Singapore. Aside from covid, Singapore has the advantage of speaking English. And enough Chinese to connect with China as well. Very true, I was just trying to present s...

Re: Noisy neighbor most nights until 7-8am, what can we do?

You can choose to take a more hard-line approach, and pursue legal action, OR, you can try to kill them with kindness. No one wants to be enemies with their neighbors. Have a chat with them, maybe they’ll be understanding. If not, go ahead with your original plan.

Re: trying to relocate from UK

You sound like the type of person that enjoys planning, even down to the details… similar to me. In my case, I had a very compelling reason to move here… my wife-to-be. I quit my job, sold my car and and moved here, sight unseen, with a one-way ticket, no job and no visa, just two suitcases and a s...

Re: Food caterers also battered by Covid19

Exactly, on such a small scale, most would prefer to order from the larger delivery services like Grab. More options, cheaper delivery fees (if the order is large enough the delivery fee is waived), and faster delivery time.

Re: Everyday items to bring from the US to Singapore

Make sure to get plenty of aspirin, its much cheaper there. Also, most specialty snacks aren’t available here, only the more popular items like cheetos can be found in mainstream grocery stores. If you’re looking for trail mix, your best bet would be to visit a whole foods retailer (scoop wholefood...

Re: Everyday items to bring from the US to Singapore

Thanks everyone for the great suggestions! Neosporin is definitely something that I'll need to get, in addition to aspirin, Tums, and Hall's. I didn't realize that multivitamins are so much more expensive in Singapore, so I'll be sure to stock up on Centrium, and also to note the expiration dates. ...

Re: Everyday items to bring from the US to Singapore

They sell the Japanese equivalent of Tide Pods called “Ka” laundry capsules. My husband is American (I’m a local Singaporean) and said it works well from the samples we got. Though we usually use liquid detergent and it’s sufficient. The Tide brand is available here but in liquid form. Bring a univ...

Re: Do expats here eat durians?

Having been in Singapore for over two decades, exposure to durian is unavoidable. But I am sorry to report every experience has been unpleasant for me. The worst part is, after eating it, I will be burping it back up for the next couple of hours… like it keeps reminding me not to do it again! The b...
