The Dyson has a bog standard fan hidden in the base... how else is it generating the air flow? And bog standard fans are subject to the laws of physics... there is at least one layer of air molecules attached to the fan blade... how else would dust stick if the blade was wiped clean by air? maybe n...

Also. An element of SGns seem to have a psychological need to have a section of society to dislike and put down. Perhaps a vent and release for their own frustrations? Hence the highly odious (to me) general disdain for anyone from the sub-continent. Is it a variant of bullying perhaps? Someone who...

And the other book about families because it had single mum and a lesbian couple as different types of 'family unit' apparently some religious group complained that this was exposing children to unnatural family situations. Well, speaking as someone to come from one of these unnatural families I rec...

^+1 JR8 has pretty much nailed it there. IMO you'll always regret what you could've done rather than what you did. Also... 1. What hobbies interests do you have? From the research I've done there's pretty much a club/association for everything in SG. OR is there something you'd love to try but haven...

On the plus side, that's a great location to get to familiarise yourself to SG. Bang in the middle between Newton and Novena MRTs. And it's a stroll (800m?) to Newton Hawker Centre*, where familiarising yourselves with the local culinary delights awaits you! * Google maps indicates NHC as 'Closed' ...

We're in the same boat and have just decided to leave/sell/gift pretty much everything in our house just incase it doesn't fit in a condo. From the research I've done it would appear that even unfurnished condos have cooker, fridge, washing machine. Our house is now rented out and we'll be living wi...

I had something similar (although nowhere near as bad) with my student tenants in Glasgow. They once complained that there was a damp in the shower, funnily enough it disappeared once I explained it was just mould and they had to clean it. One of them called to tell me he'd broke his bed "just sitti...

Sounds like they've copied the Ryanair model where they advertise a seat for £1 but it ends up costing 10x as much! Stick to Taxis!
