Hi all

I'm looking to rent out a brand new 2+1 bedroom about 5-10 mins walk from Raffles Place, Downtown and Tanjong Pagar MRT. The unit is partial furnished but I can arrange for as much furniture as you need. Perfect for a couple of professionals working in the city.


Drop your asking rent by half and I may consider.

Market is still sinking with no end in sight. Countless white elephants around.

Good luck to anyone who bought in the past 5 years or thinking of buying in the next 10 years. Still very far to drop.

Hi, I am the great fan of Singapore and how can I get a citizenship there?

Dedicate your life to queuing, choping and acquiescing, whilst complaining incessantly. You'll be a shoo-in.

Man made 2005 NDP bomb hoax due to 'resentment' over previous jail term

Yahoo News Singapore

19 October 2018

Angry and resentful about his time spent behind bars at the now defunct Portsdown Prison, a 30-year-old Malaysian who was repatriated after serving his jail term decided to make the Singapore government “anxious” and “worried”, a district court heard.

Khor Chye Siew cooked up an elaborate hoax about suicide bombers targeting Singapore’s 40th National Day Parade in 2005.

From a cyber cafe in Thailand, under the guise of being “Malik Mahmud”, Khor sent an email warning the authorities of an impending attack – just days before the parade. He thought a bomb threat from “a Muslim” would be more convincing.

On 19 October, Khor, who is now 42 and a British national, was jailed for four months having pleaded guilty to one charge of giving false information to a public servant.

Khor was arrested at Changi Airport on 26 May this year when he flew into Singapore from London.

The court heard that in March 2005, Khor was sentenced to six months’ jail with three strokes of the cane for an immigration offence.

After his release from Portsdown Prison, Khor was repatriated to Malaysia as he was a Malaysian national at the time. He then made his way to Hatyai in Thailand.

Welcome to Singapore! I’m sure you will love it here, being an expat myself the biggest shock I got was that I had to do my utilities account after I found a HDB for rent in Singapore.

From Encyclopedia Britannica

:In 2017, our family tree got a little taller: an international team of scientists identified well-preserved fossils of a primitive sea creature that they say is the oldest known ancestor of a wide range of animals, including humans. The microscopic creature—named Saccorhytus after its baglike body shape—lived in the early Cambrian Period about 540 million years ago. Saccorhytus would have been only about a millimeter in length and would have lived between grains of sand in the seabed. To the naked eye, the fossils, which were found in central China, looked like dark specks in limestone. Under an electron microscope, however, it was possible to see significant details: the creatures were bilaterally symmetrical with a body dominated by a single large opening that was probably used for both eating and excreting waste (researchers didn’t find any signs of an anus). The creature’s body covering was probably thin and flexible, suggesting that it could have moved by wriggling or making contracting movements. Arranged around the central opening are several smaller openings that researchers hypothesize may have evolved into gills.

The researchers believe that Saccorhytus is the earliest known specimen of a broad group of animals called deuterostomes, which includes chordates (a group that includes all vertebrates) and echinoderms.

I see a lot of rooms advertised on Facebook, get on there and go into some of the Singapore groups and look.  Short let may be an issue, but try.  Also make sure you have fully comp medical cover, Singapore is seriously expensive if anything happens to you and you need medical treatment

Started by Renew EP or apply new EP - Last post by Renew EP or apply new EP
Hi All,

I am in a unique postion.

I am on EP in singapore and my EP will expire on 1st Feb 2019.

I recently got a job in Company A. They were having getting EP in past (took more than 2 months) because of bad foreigner to local ratio. Now they hired an agency on whose name my EP will be issued.

The problem is agency says they need to post ad on Job banks for 14 days then they will apply ie in first week of November and then I have to wait for EP.

My current employer will apply renewal around mid november (1st Dec is deadline by MOM to apply renewal fo rmr) . MOM has rule that it does no allow simultaneous more than one application for a person so my issue is if my new employer apply for EP and it gets rejected and my old employer cannot apply for renewal then I will be in trouble.

So I want to ask should I get my renewal done first and then apply for new EP or just directly apply for new EP and leave renewal?

MY profile
Job - Software engineer
Salary - 6700 monthly
Work Ex - 2 years in Singapore (total also 2 years)

Why don’t you make a booking deal with some air bnb bloke? It”ll be cheaper than$2600 I suspect. If the company’s not paying for four accommodation, i’d Start looking for a company in Singapore who gives you better terms of employment.

The days of expat contracts may be over but a good local contract is still the go.

The three recipients of this year’s Nobel prize in chemistry have, as the Nobel committee put it, ‘harnessed the power of evolution’ at the molecular level. Arnold’s work on the directed evolution of enzymes has created biological systems with completely new chemistries and enabled the production of biocatalysts for greener chemical manufacturing. She receives 50% of the prize, with the remaining half shared between George Smith and Greg Winter for their pioneering work on phage display, a way of evolving new proteins and antibodies that has ultimately led to the development of drugs that have improved the lives of millions.

It is the ‘broad and profound impact’ that directed evolution strategies have had across various scientific disciplines that makes them worthy of a Nobel prize, says Rudi Fasan, a former post-doc of Arnold’s who now runs his own lab at the University of Rochester in the US. ‘They have revolutionised the way we think,’ he tells Chemistry World.
