Yes, Unfortunately I am getting old.
But not too old to learn. There is always someone with more experience and of a higher position I hope to learn from.

Maybe Mentor is not what I need. Maybe it is just better networking

I'm doing parkour. The conditioning can be a killer if the coach feels like torturing us :twisted: Jumping and climbing around the urban jungle that is Singapore is quite fun. Where and when can one try this ? This is something that I think looks really cool. But I worry I might be way too old for ...

Re: Advice for someone clueless and heading to Singapore

Thanks, this is useful to know. A little planning would have saved us a lot of money. This is the important one for me. Usually during all the rush of relocation, we never have the time to think, let alone plan. I really worry about costly mistakes (in addition to the potential overall mistake of de...

It could mean that someone advertising a unit that hasn't TOP'd yet. But more likely it is a fake ad for an agent who is just fishing for tenant clients. He/she doesn't have a specific unit in that building, but is instead trying to find potential clients in that price range. ah, this does explain ...

Advice for someone clueless and heading to Singapore

Sorry for the extremely vague question, I am trying to generate ideas of topics I need to be thinking of. I need answer whilst at the moment I don't even know the questions yet.

Exit Strategy

Ok, I appreciate that does who successfully manage to get out of Singapore may no longer be posting on this forum - and that this post may be on the wrong message board for which I appologise in advance. On leaving Singapore, does anyone have any advice on: 1. How to settle my taxation which is curr...
