Re: Where to buy second-hand smartphones?

Just buy new. Some of the xiaomi phones are quite powerful, comparable with specs of iphone or samsung, and very affordable.

Also if you get a model with replaceable battery, stock up on 2 or 3 batteries as spare. Consumables like batteries are very cheap.

Re: Where can I find good free vpn?

Hola is the best, but like all free services, you run the risk of getting hacked or people piggybacking your internet connection to boost their download speed.

I still use it though.

Re: Looking for EZ Link Card Reader

Why bother? Its easier just registering a DBS credit card for autotopup. No fees, and you can choose as low as $20 top up increments.

I've never looked back since setting it up, and you also have that last $3that you normally can't spend , suddenly unlocked for use once you make the switch.

Re: Netflix or Hulu in Singapore

I use "hola" to allow me to subscribe to netflix. The advantage of hola is that once you are subscribed, you can change the country from USA , say Canada, or Australia and view other content available in other countries. by the way, it's free, and seamlessly integrates into chrome browser ...

Re: Free coin exchange

Wow, I'm surprised this thread has been dragged up again. But for those that want to get rid of coins, my local Cheers takes as many coins as I'm willing to carry to them. Do them a favor and sort them first into their denominations, in $5 bags for smaller coins, and $10 bags for 50c and $1 coins. E...

To put it very bluntly: it is their country, and their rules. Either accept it or move on. Yup, and most likely it will come to this. Waiting out 3 more years before I can sell my HDB (without penalty) and go back to Australia. This country does its best to attract health professionals like myself ...

in light of 15 companies recently punished for discriminatory advertising, has anyone here actually taken the time to look through the TAFEP advertising guidelines? http://www.tafep.sg/fairemployment.asp?subid=3 What puzzles me is that it's now illegal for an employer to advertise in their job ad &q...
