Re: Best Utilities Companies?

SP Services supply Electricity, water and gas, there is no choice unless you are getting bottled gas. Water and gas are cheap, electricity expensive.
There are a lot of interenet and phone providers dependent on your needs.

Re: how i was cured from cancer using Cannabis oil

I am sure you have rigorous medical studies to back up your claim, however if you are just another charlatan preying on the suffering and desperation of others you are the lowest form of scum.

Please post the links to the rigorous medical studies from reputable journals.

Tap has $10 nett pints which I recall is cheaper than BeerFest
I know nothing of Chinese Druggists in any context

Re: Five Things You Can Do To Get A Truly Fresh Start As An Expat

Old hobby / New hobby / Local friends I was lucky enough to join a sports team (Rugby club) in the first 2 weeks of coming here and I think it was the best thing I could do.

Re: Relocating to Singapore from US - need advice!

I always suggest joining a team of a sport you are interested in - you don't even need to play, it gives access to a large group of like minded individuals, some who you will most likely get along with and a group with regular events organised.
