I got the same response from Singtel. I tried streaming on NBC- I do still pay the cable bill for my father back in the states so I have log in confirmation- but could not get the player to work. So frustrating.

Next level? Maybe the likes of Plaza Singapura? Where to say walk in at ground floor and go to the top floor, you need to walk down the entire level at each floor, to get the next escalator up. Cynical. I complain about this every time I visit a mall with this set up, yet I've apparently been condi...

XXII Winter Olympics

So looks like Singtel has the rights to Olympic coverage. We have Starhub. My husband swung by Singtel last night to see if they had any plans to air any of it publicly, but the store had no info about the schedule. If anyone hears anything, please post. I'd really appreciate it.

Just to chime in on some of the issues raised here: - Your gf can apply for citizenship after having been PR for a while. She could get PR after a few years (min. 3 normally), and then after her first renewal or so (another 5 years down the road) apply for citizenship. So you are looking at a time ...

Mild benefits: foreign spouse on LTVP can be hired on Work Permit without a foreign worker's levy needing to be paid or adding to the company's I reign worker quota. It's not much but it is a concession of sorts :) We'll agree to disagree on whether or not that is a benefit. :D I will say that it i...

I don't know where you got that spouse of SC have "mild benefits". There are exactly zero benefits until the spouse has been here as your spouse 3+ years and/or the two of you have a son. Employers would rather hire a spouse who is on a DP IME because they can get a LOC and not have to deal with pas...

whoops, let me clarify jic since I posted a little hastily. I meant you need to be in person to submit the documents the OP asked about in question 2, as in the ones ICA asks to see in the IPA letter. I was just adding that to the discussion that you should not be out of the country during this proc...

Let's just be glad they don't use "either". Lord knows they can't pronounce the "th" sound, they'd be saying "eater" or "eyeter".

1. Should be no problem - in fact you can apply for an LTVP while abroad and having no SVP at all. 2. They will send you a letter asking for those documents. Make sure they have the correct postal address (of your husband) and he checks the mailbox daily. err... for online submission you can't appl...

I don't really miss anything, just the ability to shop online properly, not on retarded webpages that are written by children (or not at all) I actually miss many things, but proper store websites is near the top of the list. Especially since now I don't drive, I really miss being able to check whi...

Based on what you wrote, I thought you were going to be fine on 7100. The new offer, even better. I'd take it. Your quality of life will certainly improve, for reasons that have nothing to do with money.
