I use it thru my UK purchased Apple TV and my free (given with contract) SG Apple TV to access iPlayer, 4OD, ITV Player, UK Spotify, iTunes (UK & US) Netflix (UK&US) NBC.com and quite a few other 'international' sites. No Problems so far.

Re: Experience of ViewQwest with Freedom VPN

We've had viewquest since August. Got the 300Mb package and get about 120Mb on wi-fi. the freedom vpn is dead simple, we use it for all UK sites and I often access US and AUS websites with no problems.

Re: General stuff, tailor, food stores

Anyone had any more items made in the last 5-6weeks? I've got some fabric from NYC that I'd like made into short sleeved shirts and recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Moving to Singapore - What to do with my wine?

Bringing steaks back from UK

Does anyone know if this is OK? I've checked previous posts in the forum and also the AVA website which states you can bring 5kg of meat from Oz, NZ, Argentina and Uruguay but doesn't mention the UK. Does this mean it's a no-no from every other country or do I just have to declare it? Thanks

Hi. Looks like most of your points have been answered, but as someone living in the West I'd say you're about right. The 3bed condos in our new development go for S$3300-4600.
