Re: best Visa category and Job prospects for spouse

Hi I am exploring the options and feasibility of moving to Singapore, hopefully through my company. That however does not mean I will get a handsome expat package. At best, I will move as a local with local salary (no idea what that will be). My wife is a computer engineer with working experience i...

Hate to say it, but because LoCs usually get screwed salary wise as the employer who understands the LoC, will figure he can same a dime due to the EP holder being the main breadwinner. The DP on an LoC is always on the lookout for a position that will hire them on their own talents (e.g., an EP of...

Re: Is finding a job getting harder by the day!!!

I have a few friends who are trying for a job, i hear the market is really hard, not only for expats but also for PRs. My personal experience is that I have been trying so hard for the past 7-8 months, and have been given silly reasons for rejection like- I am on DP, or I dont have knowledge of Man...

Yes. I only have "The Tragical History of Dr. Faustus".
Tried the public library? You can use the NLB catalogue to look for it. They have both Part 1 and 2.

Now, I wonder if someone reads 50 Shades of Grey :cool: Won't be my choice for a Book Club discussion! I only heard that this is a pretty controversial book. In general, I'm just curious: why that label? Anyone like the Classics? Am reading "Far from the Madding Crowd" at the moment... I'm looking ...

Re: Masters - Is it really that easy?

I've been observing in increasing frequency here in this forum that more and more random people come up having masters written all over their posts. Some are MBA, some do not specify what kind of masters they have, but we will just leave it there. I get it that some really earned their keep. To tha...

That's interesting. I find wearing sarees on daily basis is a little OTT. I actually own a set of sarees and salwar kurta each and I find salwar kurta easier to pull off and has lower risk of wardrobe malfunction (if you know what I mean). Maybe sarees for super duper special and elaborate cultural...

Well he is right in a way. Salwar kurta is the common outfit worn by 'normal' Indian women there on daily basis. Sarees (probably the ones portrayed often by international media - AND Bollywood) are usually for something more ceremonious. In South Africa the Indian women wear sarees on a daily basi...

Re: Leaving the forum

Hi - can anyone tell me how to leave the forum. I thought it would be helpful and it turns out that while there are some really helpful people there are a lot of others who are, simply, rather unpleasant. Life's a little too short to deal with that on what is supposed to be a supportive ex-pat foru...
