"My understanding is MOM is very quick on those shotguns , China WP and Filipinos WP They have not a good track record to say the least. "

And also.. " to get them to swing your way."???

Getting pregnant or married without MOM permission first.


MOM must see in your favour

Unbelievable. Forget about shotguns and shortguns. Understand this:
1. If you get married or get pregnant without MOM's permission you are in deep sh*t and will be banned for ever to live or work in Singapore.
2. If you ask MOM for permission and they refuse you still can do what you are doing in Singapore (working, living) but you can NOT get married or get pregnant - you may ask MOMfor permission again after some time.

My dear, you write to them and they will reply Or alternatively go and see them personally with your bf to MOM.
They will give you the approval on the spot OR will reply via e-mail or snail mail
Capsice ?

Look I am spoon feeding you like a baby now.

No format to give you lah. You just hantam what you want to write

Senang one go to MOM and see the officer there . Not the front counter

Bring your bf along.

See them and tell them your problem

Get the permission letter in writing if you are allowed

Go to ROM and get married.

If they asked you to go back first and wait for their reply. You wait

If fail, you cannot get married then you still can work in SG no problem

If die die you want to marry your bf, must stay in Malaysia lor . Cannot work in SG or stay here nanti kena tangkap :D
