Re: PR at 43 years old

Thanks everyone for the input, I thought it might be tough for them but I suppose that there is no harm in trying.

Re: Service Apartments

Airbnb in Singapore is of decent quality and you can get an idea of what it's like to really live in your area of choice.

Re: Mountain holiday in Malaysia/Thailand

I stayed here about 8 years ago and was very nice and peaceful but you need to fly to Kuching then drive for 4 or 5 hours. http://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g3239591-d300610-Reviews-Batang_Ai_Longhouse_Resort_Managed_by_Hilton-Lubok_Antu_Sarawak.html#PAGE Alternatively Rowa island is also very...

Re: Relocation options HK to SG

I turned the SG job offer down. I received another offer in HK that was substantially higher than the SG offer. Quality of life sacrificed for cash. so we will stick it out here a few more years!

Re: Looking for Soccer Players 11 a side

What age group do you play? Any legends league? I am 36 so doubt I can chase down a 25 year old. I am currently in Hk but just finalising a move back to SG so I will be there from January I think.

Re: Should I take the offer?

Re: 'Dual representation' - i.e. agent represents both landlord and tenant

Does the law apply to individuals or companies? I'd have thought your agreement would be with the company and not the agent. Or was she a sole agent and now works for a company?

Re: Where to live - couple and pregnant!

You can get somewhere on the east coast for a grand or so cheaper than in RV. Then use that $1k for taxis. Then you have a mummy environment and a convenient commute.

Re: Advice on Online Marketing

We started out with an agency but then decided to manage it ourselves but it all depends what stage you are at. Do you know your audience? Do you have an idea of a campaign and you just need help to reach the audience? Do you want to drive traffic to your website or into a physical store? If you wan...
