Re: break the lease if TA not stamped

Hi, we have found the unit signed a LOI and TA, and paid 1 month deposit. After than we have changed our mind and found a better unit that suits our needs. What are my chances to get out of the old agreement - we still have not moved in and the agreement is not stamped. I have informed the agent, a...

Your whining here is the best proof of the gov practices to be not only reasonable but necessary and targeted at the right places.

Re: Street trees disappearing

I have moved to Jurong last couple of months back, after spending ages in Tampines. This part of the island is very green, full of trees and water, I stay in Lakeside. However there are lots of mosquitoes and ants in our house. The area is nice but there is like semi-permanent dengue cluster around...

Re: (What would happen?) Breaking lease early without any diplomatic clause

Thanks both for the replies. My agent already offered to look for a replacement tenant but seems like the rental demand is not very high at the moment and especially in this condo there are already several other empty rooms which have been listed for rent for months. The units in this condo are act...

Re: 2 weeks in Singapore

Re: Coffee in Singapore

I like to use a steam percolator for my weekend espresso. Takes about 5-10mins depending how fancy I want to make it, but a nice ritual. If you enjoy rituals buy yourself a siphon coffee maker. Watching the process alone is already lots of fun. https://images1.houstonpress.com/imager/u/original/642...

Re: Minivan Share to Mersing

Hi All, We are planning a trip to Tioman over the National Day Weekend and have been advised not to take the coach to Mersing due to the time it takes, instead taking a private transfer. Most companies I have found operate with 7 to 9 seater mini vans at around $420 return. As there are only two of...

Re: Report a safety issue with condo

Have you tried to propose motion triggered lighting? They have this. The sensor is aimed down, so it only triggers if you're walking up the stairs. And even then, the range is border-line useless. Not possible to do it right (replace/fix it)? Even with a simple wall switch triggered timer if it kee...

Re: Report a safety issue with condo

Hey So my building is constantly having issues, amongst which the single lift for my half of the building constantly breaks down. During this time, the only option is a single stairwell. This stairwell is pitch black by day, and timer by light. I've raised this to the management company, but they s...

Re: Age limit for getting EP/SPass?

Mmm - this is probably true. I've seen some 60+ American folk jump ship out of international school positions (directors, business managers) and while it hasn't been said that they are leaving because of EP issues I was wondering if they knew something I didn't. I've seen the same in a tutorial cen...
