Re: PR approved, but I don't need it anymore WTF!!!???

Yep Sergei, we should have a gathering. First week of March may be a good idea. Is this confirmed? I have few engagements coming up and I need to plan ahead - soon. I am most likely out of the country all week commencing 9th March so the first week would be good for me. Do we need to start another ...

Re: iphone 6 launch

Bought mine on Ebay a few days after the launch at 80 dollars above the Apple Singapore price. It was a Singtel contract upgrade so the guy made a nice profit and I paid an additional 80 dollars to avoid the queues and the wait by Internet ordering. No drama :wink:

Re: Might be time to leave this year

Thanks, so it seems the biggest obstacle to buying a property will be having no paper cheques! :wink:

Looking forward to that beer I may need it after the family move. Will let you know when it is happening.
