What context do you want to use your name in? Every Chinese guy I know in Singapore has an "English" nickname, often used in business cards etc, but it's purely informal and not recorded on the IC or anything.

to change name, you need to get a deed poll from a lawyer.

speaking about deed poll, anyone can introduce any law firm, etc? In terms of quotation of price, convenience...thanks.

Try Christina Goh gsleng@pacific.net.sg. She seems quite reasonable. Located at Central Square.
