Shanghai dumplings?
Like xiaolongbao?
There are many places in Singapore where you can find 小笼包。
However, for dumplings in general (like 水饺) I prefer the little Dong Bei shops (东北小吃) in Chinatown.

Re: Quotes

“Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe.” ― Albert Einstein No, the source of this (Perls) cannot be considered reliable. It contradicts Einstein's own conception of the universe. However, the idea of infinite human stupidity was written about...

Re: The Donald ... Getting stuff Done!!!

Good for business? In some cases for a short-term boost, but not in the long term. Though some technical advances supported by military spending may help the economy (those that can be commercialized), the bulk of military spending is a drag that does not help future prosperity. Weapons expenditures...

Re: The Donald ... Getting stuff Done!!!

Nobel Peace Prize on its way for The Donald with the North Korea situation changing direction!! He hasn't done anything to deserve this yet. Kim Jong Un's change in tone occurred soon after his trip to Beijing. However, you won't see Xi Jinpin clamoring for credit. That's just not an Asian thing. N...

Re: Type of air cond servicing for rental

Does your rental agreement stipulate that the required A/C maintenance must include a chemical wash? Does it have any other wording suggesting any criteria about the A/C servicing done? Unless there is a high amount of dust in the air or if there is mould growing, a chemical wash is usually unnecess...

Re: The Donald ... Getting stuff Done!!!

Kim is begging for war apparently :( No, it is the US & its military that is begging for war (again). The DPRK saw what happened to Saddam after he gave up his nuclear ambitions. They also saw what happened to Gaddafi after he gave up his nuclear ambitions. The DPRK is not going to go down that...

Re: Am I in trouble?

Since the system is set-up to recognise you, you should be able to go through the same kind of line coming back in. It really is so much faster. Shouldn't work for coming in unless the person holds some residency in Singapore. As noted above, I believe the system was expanded to include other vario...

Re: Studying Madarin in local Secondary Schools

Hi all, my son started learning Madarin 7 years back when he was 6 years old. We've changed a few tutors for him in the younger age and he took Chinese as his Mother Tongue as well in school(local school). His foundation was really weak compared to all his Chinese classmates, and he was losing inte...

Re: MAX limit for cash deposit into bank account?

One can always make multiple deposits on different days, or to different banks if you have more than one account. I believe MAS can stlll find you [emoji53] It's not an issue of being found. It's just a way to avoid having to do the extra paperwork for what should be a simple deposit. Just need to ...
