Re: Best exchange rate for moving large sums from SGD to USD?

So far the best deal seems JR8's suggestions some time back for one-the-street money exchangers, and hopeful for alternatives but looks like Block Chain is not quite it yet.

Re: Skype alternatives and overseas communications

...agree, and why a good network can outweigh having to use recruiters.

Not all recruiters are bad, but the odds are way in favor that they will be.

And thank you for the well-wishes!

Re: Skype alternatives and overseas communications

Thanks Lynx, and I agree. I've had a $10 paid Skype subscription for years and never used it until recently, and it is very cost effective. I have used this recently for calls with some recruiters there, but not all. I was admittedly being stubborn at certain recruiters' stubbornness, self-righteous...

Re: Music

Niles was just in Singapore a few months back, but sadly I don't think the turnout was that big

Re: Skype alternatives and overseas communications

I sometimes do, it's the same thing, different app, and few in the US use it so not relevant for this purpose.

Re: Job consideration in Singapore from Tokyo - please advise

Yes, I have been wanting to leave Japan in past three years. After looking for jobs in Singapore for past 7 months (which is extremely tough especially because you are not in Singapore) we finally got an offer of ......Considering this, my main concern was whether 7.5k offer in Singapore makes sens...

Re: Job consideration in Singapore from Tokyo - please advise

My lost post was along the lines of that at least 3 of us in thread, including BBCW (who is not English therefore no DA accent), have extensive experience living in both places and the focus is on the feasibility of life in Singapore to suit the OP's intentions. Travel to/from here and racism are se...

Re: Job consideration in Singapore from Tokyo - please advise

I know that life is way easier than in Japan. Here we also have "no foreigner" apartments and they call to landlords in front of you saying you are a foreigner. Just as an example.

Re: Job consideration in Singapore from Tokyo - please advise

Am late to this thread and will read the posts retrospectively. Having lived in both places for a number of years each, and having left Japan not because I wanted to but the market in Japan was shrinking then and the market in Singapore was exploding.

Re: Music

'Neil Young - Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young - played Woodstock' Hmm.... interesting I thought I knew that band quite well, but I didn't know that.
