Re: Online storage for photos/videos

Have any of you tried pcloud? any feedback? Planning to get the lifetime subscription in it What extra value do you see in it as compared to some more popular services (dropboxes, onedrives and such)?

Re: Impulse purchase

We are absolutely not missing out on anything! It is myth that you need to spend a lot of money to be happy. I will give you an example of what happened yesterday: My wife yesterday evening said, lets order food. I asked her is pizza okay? She said ok. There is a pizza hut 2kms away. So took my bic...

I actually believe I saw 'Seagate' on a building recently.
They opened an R&D center in Ayer Rajah cluster just few years ago. Not sure about manufacturing.

Re: Reopening is too slow

I read the same article a few minutes ago. I agree that things are way too slow. My personal observation is that people here are also very fearful. When you compare the numbers of new infections this year with what we had at the start of the pandemic, you'll find that it was way more then. Yet, I s...

Re: BYO Helper

Hi all. I’m moving to Singapore from London and have a 15 month old. we were previously in Istanbul where we had a Russian speaking helper (Moldovan) and were keen to bring her with us, since I’m assuming having a helper who speaks Russian would be hard to come by. Anyone know if this is possible o...

Re: Motorcycle COE quota drastically reduced

Since the gov started to mess around the motorcycles I think the riders are very insecure in terms what to expect. 2.5 years ago, the quota was cut down significantly, later the quota I think was restored or almost restored, but it took almost one year to stop panic bidding. This round, something ha...

Re: Drunk driver jailed

Compensation to the family may come from a separate lawsuit. I doubt the family even has the finances to engage a lawyer and enter a legal battle. There are good lawyers around helping pro bono FDWs in such cases. For example, Anil Balchandani helped in recent, very complicated case of Indonesian f...

Re: Terrible thai restaurant

I tried Esarn at Ridgewood condo, so a different branch than Addadude recommended, and the experience was at best very average. I wonder if they vary that much from branch to branch.

Re: Do expats here eat durians?

I like durians occasionally. Only fresh, unprocessed (so no cakes, candies, ice creams etc.). It's not a big affection though.
