My heart goes out to the families of the boys that were tragically killed on Saturday morning. My son knew one of the boys very well and is having great difficulty coming to terms with what happened. I notice in the paper that there is a memorial service at Bethany Church on the 7th floor of Orchard Towers for William today. Does anyone know of a memorial service for Alex as I would like to go and represent my son who is currently in the UK back for University?
Hi, I am coming to live in Singapore for half a year, and cannot imagine life without biking :) Just conditions are not too good... I thought to buy a foldable bicycle which I could take into MRT, but new ones are quite expensive. Does any of you know a shop where I could choose from second hand ones? Or at least a good site on-line. Thanks for any kind of info! Dalia
Are these little talking machines for the car available in Singapore? I saw them in europe and they are really helpful. You type in an address and it talks you through the route. I have to find clients all over Singapore and am always fighting witht the map book. Just can't find my way around all those chopped pages!
Hey I'm buying a car for the first time in Singapore and was wondering if anyone knew a good and reliable model/make. My company is paying for it and the insurance etc. My price range is in the 100-120,000 dollars. DOes anyone know whats value for that sort of money? I've heard the prices of cars are very ridiculous here compared with the UK.
Just started driving here in Singapore and thought I was fairly well prepared (passed the test, have been here a while and travelled in taxis, driven in France...) but I'm amazed at how idiotic some drivers seem to be! Despite you running out of road and indicating they just will NOT give up and force you to almost crash or brake madly..it seems astonishing that a place that sets such store on abiding the law seems to ignore the fact that there are loads of accidents and near misses just because of this stupid practise. Has anyone got any hints for me to lower my stress levels when driving - this first week has given me tourettes! Seriously though - how do others find the driving here?? Mrs C
Check out this website. www.insurance4carhire.com You can take out an annual insurance for £49 which means you never have to pay the excess (could be up to £1000) if the car is damaged or stolen (car hire companies charge up to £12 per day to insure you for this)! I don't know about you but I am always looking for ways to reduce my car hire costs.
