There is at least one good soul who can answer straight to my question.

Thanks yogibabe
Now. You have been told twice. Do you now understand?

If you weren't quite so bloody dense and spoiling for a gripe, you would have realized that I answered your question in the first reply to your original post.

You are a real piece of work you know that? :roll:

Your biggest mistake was not to communicate constructively, for your own reasons, with those that know! So why should people ever want to help you in general. If you are going to run a business, you need to do the SWOT on yourself, and accept what you find.

All you had to say was, "No I have not yet received the AIP", common sense should tell you what bureaucracy is like in Singapore, there is no short cuts.
So there is no point giving advice to a stubborn, "I know better attitude" I believe you can clear the air, with an apology to those concerned, it makes life more peacful to flow with the current, rather than against it, and who knows, when you need advice again!

Amen, KSL. What I got out of this entire exchange is a person who hasn't actually done anything, yet wants me to believe that he/she has already done it and is an expert.

Yet, from the questions asked the person is an ignoramus, and when challenged, takes the defensive position of attacking me and others. Secondarily, there is nothing wrong with being wrong and learning truth yet every attempt by posters to this thread to illuminate have been attacked.

So, let him have at it... possibly he has his AIP... at $3,000 at pop... but I doubt it and I would bet money on it.

Rationality is the best approach to a successful business. Just because you want to believe things are a certain way doesn't mean they are. But I reckon the OP will find this out quickly enough.
