This forum and its members hold no responsibility for electrical items that randomly burst into flames due to poor advice from abovesaidmentioned members or other random electrical faults. :D :P

Thanks everyone for the advise. I won't blame the forum if its old and sets alight. As most of our things are still in boxes ( new) it will be fine.
Will I need to change plugs?

Ironically although all the electrical goods I brought from the UK are fine most of the electrical products I have purchased here in Singapore are 2 pin and require adapters!

I just use a stick or a key to press the switch in the ground pin hole so that the two prongs can go it. I have never had any--

ZZZZZZZAP.

Lol, so true of small stuff like a mobile phone or air ionizer. You come home and suddenly it's like "oh, European plug." :)
