Television / TV Repair

Hello all, did a search and found nothing current/relevant. So, I'm in need of a recommended / trustworthy TV repairman who won't charge me for imaginary parts and services. It's an old CRT TV that came with the condo. Does anybody have any recommendations / experiences to share? Many thanks in adva...

Congratulations, pilotmoon. Just out of curiosity, how many years is it renewed for?
And a general question, why doesn't your company (or any company for that matter) just apply for 2 years or more to avoid all this?

Hm, this is a little bit worrying. Is this something that is getting more common - current EP holders not being able to renew? If so, then aren't we all in danger until elections are over? Or is this a rarity, perhaps OP has a blemish on his record in the past 3 years? Like fines or arrests while in...

Why did you have to post the same thing twice into a new thread? People have responded to you in the other thread.

I don't think another agency will make a difference. The rejection is clear and unless you have a strong argument in favor of hiring you over a local, this case is closed. You said it yourself, why hire a fresh graduate from another country when there are plenty locally?

It's easy. But if I remember correctly, the passing mark is quite high. And the results are on the spot. The moment you submit your last answer, the screen tells you whether you passed or not. Passed it on the first go, with I think 1 mistake. The girl next to me failed though, I couldn't help notic...

Perhaps you should not base your career objectives and medium term life choices on a search from "Australia's Seek.com.au". I'm sure if you do a search on Singapore's equivalent, the grass will seem greener on any side.

If you've been offered an internship by an organization, its HR dept will take care of all that for you and advise you accordingly. Why not just call the HR dept up and ask?

Sorry man, you lost all respect and credibility when you replied yourself with bogus accounts. Never mind your obnoxious and delusional self glorification.

Ah, I've yet to master the "read-newspaper-in-MRT" stance. I've mastered the "stand-in-MRT-without-needing-to-hold-on" stance though, so maybe there's hope for me yet. the next level would be "sleep-while-standing-up-in-the-train" and can only be mastered in the birthplace of this ancient art...

Wow, I'm now pretty sure you're a professional copywriter for chinese product descriptions. On a more serious note, business in Singapore is highly competitive. Even if you manage to finally get here, your competitors will tear you apart. Even your very own colleagues will eat you for breakfast if y...
