    How to scrap/deregister car?

    The dealer pay in full. ie, PARF + $200. Transfer to their name, and they do the de-registration themself.

    How to scrap/deregister car?

    My friend deregistered his Hyundai Getz via sg carmart quotz few months ago. As long as you have the LTA PIN with you, they are very fast. Today call in to quotz, tomorrow the dealer come down pay cash and drive off already. Even for a Getz, his car body, he got about $200.
  3. The crabs Leedo use is the double shell crab. The beauty of the cold crab is the fact that it is just about to molt, so it has a soft shell inside of the harder outer shell. So sometimes it is also known as the double shell crab. At this stage, the crab is also full of “roe” which really isn’t “roe” since it is a male crab. The yellow “roe” is in fact milt, which is the nice way of saying crab sperm! http://4-the-love-of-food.blogspot.sg/2012/10/lee-do-restaurant-cold-crabs-reason-why.html 麗都飯店 Lee Do Restaurant ... Cold Crab's the reason why we're here. I was Ade's birthday dinner and it's almost a crabby one for the last 3 birthdays for members of Eat Eat Eat club. It was Ade's great idea that we do crab birthday meals this year. Jane's was at House of Seafood, mine in Roland Restaurant and Ade chose hers to be at 麗都飯店 Lee Do (Cold Crab) Restaurant. There are several cold crab restaurats like Li Gui at Mosque Street or the Singapura Restaurant. Non of us tried Lee Do before and so here we are. Service was really good. Our plates were replaced by clean ones between dishes. The following shows the dishes that just skimmed the surface of what we actually ate but are highlights of the dinner. Lee Do's Cold Crab was the one reason that we're here. We pre-ordered the crabs which we start tearing apart when everyone arrived at the table. The crab was chilled which was probably why it accentuates the sweetness of the crab. The pincer was the easy for us to pick at the chunky meat ... ... but I thought that the best part was the body where the crab roe mingled with the meat. Apart from the extra effort needed to separate the soft shell from the meat, which was well worth the effort, the meat we found here was especially tender and sweet. The chilli sauce as a dip didn't add much to the experience but the black vinegar did enhanced the sweetness of the crab. Negative thoughts of cholesterol intake were cast aside. Tonight we feast.

    Another example to proof that dogs are man's best friend

    Things don't always turn out this way. Check out this video of a dog protecting its owner from the guys in blue.

    Canned tomato sardines. Are these nutritious?

    Body Odour

    I face the same problem. If I wear dri-fit for more than half a day, confirm will stink. Don't face the same issue with other kinds of fabric.

    Introducing the 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata

    I hope the local AD will bring this in. It'll be the cheapest convertible available. Even if I do not buy it, I hope many others will. Such nippy cars that take up little road and parking space is a joy for all fellow drivers.

    Great day for school sports eclipsed by LTA-SMRT exchange

    At $2 per head and 3,000 pax, total revenue from this special charter arrangement is $6,000. Does not make financial sense for SMRT to do it. Not an unbiased deal, and should not be the way a public transport operator conducts itself.

    New Daihatsu Copen selling like hot cakes in Japan

    They should not have made it a convertible. Given that there's only 64 horses on this vehicle, weight saving is paramount. Get rid of the foldable roof and you get lighter body and increased boot capacity.

    Wah... 1000 points need 200 people to praise lei. @jman888, if got election in MCF, you sure become MP one. PM also possible.
  15. Perhaps you should call up some used car dealers to ask? Some of them advertise in sgcarmart as $0 down-payment. But I wonder how they do that. MAS rule is minimum 40% down-payment. This applies to all banks and financing companies.
