Re: Air Con Cleaning Service

We use our air con extensively. I pay 30 dollars a unit no contract and only have to give a couple of days notice. No issues with the service. Can't remember the name of the company but if anyone wants it pm me and I will find it.

Re: It's starting

I'm the biggest Apple fan boy on this forum, but to me the watch is ridiculous. I don't see how it helps. Siri (apple's voice input) is terribly unreliable, so you can't really use it to create messages. All the watch is going to do is tell you that you need to look at your phone. Why not just look...

Re: UK EXPAT - ELECTORAL REGISTER - HIRE CAR PROBLEM

I can understand car hire companies, which is where this thread started, wanting verification of address to avoid fraud and the electoral register would seem the best way to do that. The Police and insurance companies too?

Re: Worst Customer Service

Oh, and yes you are right to express concern. We are a very insular family and tend not to socialise. Over three years in Singapore and (other than you fine people on this forum) we have not made any friends.

Re: Worst Customer Service

The strange thing is I actually hate mobile phones and am infamous for having them switched off more than on. Yet here I am being ridiculed for having two of the latest phones :wink: The company does pay the bills for the S6. I have no idea how closely they check usage but I have the iPhone for pers...

Re: Worst Customer Service

haha

S6 is the company phone, iPhone is the personal phone. S6 gets used very frequently, iPhone less so.

Re: Worst Customer Service

Galaxy S6 Edge is beautiful, especially the platinum gold one. Coupled with a better camera than iPhone 6 and the spectacular display, anyone considering of switching to Android should take a serious look at this phone. I have both. I agree the camera and display on the S6 Edge is better but I pref...

Re: RE: Re: No more Wendys!!

Never really had an affinity for Wendy's but I do miss Wimpy :( Does the missus know about Miss Wimpy ? :o :oops: On a serious note was Wimpy's present in Singapore ? Can't recall .. Apologies I drifted off subject as I remembered the taste of a Wimpy burger back in the UK all those years ago. No t...

Re: UK EXPAT - ELECTORAL REGISTER - HIRE CAR PROBLEM

I don't know, strange response from the DVLA. I am going with remaining on the UK electoral register at Mum's house and paying council tax just to play safe (ish) until I pass the Singapore driving test!

Re: No more Wendys!!

I share the shock in the way that so many outlets open and then close. At least half a dozen times in the last couple of months my wife and I have been to do some shopping or eat food and the place has shut down and boarded up!

Funny

Standing outside on Thomson Road indulging in my bad habit I have seen a couple of funny things recently. It's a busy road as you know, I stand close to a bus stop and it is very busy, the busses arrive and leave constantly every few minutes. A couple of days ago I see an old Auntie riding her rusty...

Re: Worst Customer Service

The freedom part used to be the big issue for me but to be honest it's much better these days. As a family we can share all the photographs, video and movie content among all our laptops, iPads and phones and there is software available to extract iTunes purchases into a different format to play on ...

Re: Worst Customer Service

Sold my wife's 12 month old 5S at a mobile phone store locally in Toa Payoh recently for 60% of its original value and didn't buy any replacement from that store. I probably would have got more than that for it if I had bothered to advertise on eBay. I think the OP has low balled the value but still...

Re: Direct flight to Tel aviv Israel

If I could wish away the spinal surgery I would happily travel economy :D Nah... having flown biz class on SQ's A380's and updated 777's, you could put you and two Thai girlfriends in the seat with room to spare... true 180 degree lie flat. I'd never travel economy except for the cost factor. Must ...
