+1 and +1 And you're right - it's not AFAIK in the >5 years I've been on it. I have to note that I find it interesting that .... this forum to be anti-local.

Resurrected my alter ego briefly to say even I'm saying 'wow'. ...though I do agree with everything written so far. I think we had a thread or three with likes/dislikes lists, JR's is good though would serve as a representative excerpt from them, plus a few new ones. But to the newbie - you will hav...

Odd how people would spout or solicit advice to and from complete strangers on an internet site over such key life issues like divorce

Actually I'd have to agree with ecureilx on all accounts, including the giggling. The naiveté of some people... There's a lot more outside action happening in Asia than back home (at least from what I've witnessed). Why that is, well, that may take some soul searching but it's probably not too diffi...

Another factor to consider is for getting in to Singapore while it is still worthwhile and perhaps even possible. I'm no expert in the areas that dictate the factors that may make this so, but from what I can see, Singapore as one of the current lower-cost locations for a lot of businesses that has ...

I'm one of those with said garbanzos. I relish these situations, because what is surprising is how fast an...

Lotsa tired stereotypes and persecution complexes bubbling up on a thread that by title alone is a baiting. Surprised it went as far as it did.

So what ever happened to SGBoyxxx ?

...he and Banana seems to have have gone off the air, they had some of the best posts - Banana for his sharp wit and impeccable humor, and SGBoyxxx for his down-to-Earth perspectives and balanced approach.
