  1. Based on that take home pay, most Singaporeans should only afford a HDB 3 room flat without busting their ratio Hmm......I thought a 3 room flat in Bidadari is 400K++?

    over 40s... if you were retrenched tomorrow...

    Well, their 'Masters Degree' asking only SGD$1800 when local grads with basic degree asking SGD$2200 during my time right after Uni. Note the quotes for 'Masters Degree' . 5 years down the road, almost all of our Computing students are out of the market. How to find a local in the market now?
  3. I used to be in a NRI department couple of years back of a major offshore bank. I wouldn't say the business is worth the effort compared to what Private Bank brings in

    Not many companies will do pay adjustment. People in their 40s with tons of experience may not even draw as high as a fresh grad. Being 'fresh and young' is good hor

    Yeah, I wonder if it's really possible. 20+ years ago , fresh programmers from Uni asking SGD$2.2K, now can hit $5K?

    Singapore National Anthem 2019

    Wow, I can't sing at such orchestra level but quite easy with a poker face and tone just like good old school days.
  7. That's a good move because I've seen old folks on PMAs watched too much need for speed movies.

    You mean this? https://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/courts-crime/car-driver-and-pmd-rider-arrested-for-rash-act-after-road-spat-in-tanjong Car driver and PMD rider arrested for rash act after road spat in Tanjong Pagar SINGAPORE - A driver and a personal mobility device (PMD) rider have been arrested after getting into an argument that was captured on video. The video clip, filmed on Enggor Street in Tanjong Pagar, was uploaded on the SG Road Vigilante Facebook page as well as citizen journalism site Stomp last Thursday (Nov 28). The clip, taken from the car's dashboard camera, shows the vehicle overtaking the PMD user riding in the rightmost lane, before a banging sound is heard. The car then stops and its driver and the PMD rider get into an argument. In another piece of footage from a different vehicle that is embedded in the clip, the driver is seen pushing the car's door against the PMD user. The PMD rider then opens the door further and reaches into the driver's seat. In a statement on Sunday, the police said that they were alerted to the traffic incident last Thursday and have since arrested the 43-year-old driver and the 36-year-old PMD rider for their suspected involvement in a case of rash act. "The driver and PMD rider argued and acted aggressively to each other before parting ways," said the police. The driver was arrested last Saturday while the PMD rider was arrested on Sunday by officers from the Central Police Division. Anyone convicted of the offence of rash act can jailed for up to six months, fined up to $2,500, or both. The police reminded road users to observe proper traffic rules and not to take the law into their own hands. Anyone with information regarding an alleged traffic violation can lodge a report at the nearest neighbourhood police centre or provide the information to the Traffic Police Department online. Since Jan 15, 2018, it is illegal for PMDs - such as e-scooters and hoverboards - to be used on roads. First-time offenders can be fined up to $2,000, jailed up to three months, or both. E-scooters are also banned from footpaths since Nov 5. Those caught flouting the rules can be fined up to $2,000 and/or jailed for up to three months if convicted. But from now until the end of the year, the authorities will mainly issue warnings to errant riders on footpaths, but a zero-tolerance approach will be taken from next year.
  9. From how I see the situation, come 1st Jan 2020, there will still be people on PMDs. The interesting thing is whether our government is determined to really clamp down with enforcement before election. After election another story

    Is working in this sector recession proof?
  12. Plenty zooming around in town centers. Personally I've also seen PMA on high speed. It seems to me that not many understand with power comes responsibility. Instead of going slow using PMD/PMA, they just make use of the speed to ride dangerously. Maybe everybody that is of age should be send to National Service to learn what is RESPONSIBILITY.
