Re: Covid19 vaccine and cardiac arrest

BTW, I checked with my dad this morning and surprisingly the VA is giving Moderna not Pfizer... the second dose is going to be 28 days after the first. I told my dad that Moderna is the high tech stuff, cutting edge... to which my mom replied... maybe it will make him younger! Moderna has higher in...

Re: Using Australian appliances in Singapore

I’ve yet to find a genuinely good electrician here, every home renovation we’ve done, the electrician only succeeded in taking things from bad to worse! OMG, yes, not just electricity but in general... I'm going to digress for a second. Our HDB flat is currently leased to tenants. The flat next to ...

Re: Covid19 vaccine and cardiac arrest

I've had the vaccine. And I do have underlying medical conditions which are under control with medications, including blood pressure, cholesterol and diabetes. What I did experience was joint pain, probably 2 weeks after the first injection. And I'm not even 100% sure it's related to the vaccine, bu...

Re: Using Australian appliances in Singapore

Just be aware that it is a known and documented issue and if you knowingly use such adaptors you may void fire insurance. Use of 2 pin plugs in 3 pin sockets violates the Singapore standards as well. You should rewire to the 3 pin plug. I mean your apartment could end up looking like my neighbors l...

Re: Using Australian appliances in Singapore

Hey splatted - you've given some very unsafe advice. 1. You should not use travel adaptors - they are a leading, known cause of electrical shock and house fires. 2. Using unapproved telcom equipment in Singapore can lead to a fine (particularly if connected to the phone network). I'm going to disag...

Re: Using Australian appliances in Singapore

Normally I would say don't bother. Many common items you can buy in Australia can be bought in Singapore relatively cheap. Budget kettles, toasters, sandwich makers start from $10 at Giant Iron's from $20 Was it a specific item you had in mind? All the appliances will work, however you either have t...

Re: Man stole 200 masks from vending machine

He was a recruiter. He would have the copies of all those he found jobs for. Remember, these are not Singaporean, but employment pass holders. All are given masks under this program, all you need is an image file/xerox copy scanned into your phone (or physical copy) and it is scanned and approved b...

Also, check his phone apps. If he did internet banking, clues will be on his phone, including OTP text messages he hasn't deleted yet.

Re: Looking for a business firm to help us

Depends where he lived. Are we discussing Australia, or somewhere else? I would ask his work place's HR where they deposited his pay (since you mentioned work insurance). Go in person However, often people have more than one bank account, and even other banks for credit cards. Once you have the deat...

Here is another that I've occasionally used (daily email updates sent). https://trashnothing.com/beta/browse
I gave away a brand new hair dryer to someone on that platform.

Got it free as part of a shampoo bundle.

Re: What kind of software applications do hospitals use?

With the major data leak in recent years, which hospital would seriously let on what packages they are using? The more info you put out to the public, the more vulnerable you are to different points of attack by hackers.

Re: advertising on fb

To be honest, good question and I don't know the answer. It seems to be a free for all over there. I try NOT to venture into that minefield. Give Pal a shout and ask. (oh, and send cookies). ;-) I have a feeling admins don't go there either. Tried clicking "report to group admins" button on one, bu...

advertising on fb

I've just noticed Singapore Expats also has a presence now on FB.

I'm assuming rules on FB are the same as here? No property advertising?

If we spot something, do we just report it? Does Singapore Expats have it's own properties advertised in the FB feed, and how do we know who is who?

Re: ENBLOC

Thanks. I'm more worried about how HDB compensates residents. Would it be less than if a person sold the property as a resale flat? We bought in at the time when prices were peaking, just before cooling measures.

Re: Is Value dollar shop, a good place to shop ?

Chocolates are from a different market, and might not be made with exactly the same recipe as bought here. ( Some tasted way sweeter. ). Others like snickers, and bounty tasted okay Some items I believe are seconds/rejects, eg batteries can be a hit and miss. There have been several occasions where ...
