    Najib Announce VEP for Spore cars!

    Their system finally came online about 3:30pm. After that the staff there process the hot and flustered waiting Singaporeans as quickly as they could. My total wait time was about 1.5 hours. There were about 10 cars ahead that probably came earlier. So they waited longer.

    Najib Announce VEP for Spore cars!

    Here at Lima Kedai VEP collection point. It's almost 3pm. My appointment was 2pm. About 20 Singapore cars here. Nothing moving. Their computer system seems to be down. Sigh.

    Fibre broadband

    Have been using M1 Fibre 1GB plan for a couple of years. No detectable down time. No complains from family members using mobile phones and computers through Wifi or LAN. (However, I don't use their free routers. I use my own.)
  4. Singapore Teen Critic in US Reportedly Wants Asylum By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO — Dec 24, 2016, 11:53 AM ET A teenage blogger from Singapore whose supporters say is seeking asylum is in custody after being detained last week at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport, U.S. immigration officials said Saturday. Amos Yee, 18, was detained Dec. 16 and remains in custody "pending federal immigration court proceedings," U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman Gail Montenegro said in a written statement. Separately, Marilu Cabrera with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, which handles some asylum requests, said the agency "cannot confirm or deny" details of any asylum case. The Human Rights Watch deputy director for Asia, Phil Robertson, called on the U.S. to recognize Yee's asylum claim, saying he has been consistently harassed by the Singapore government for publicly expressing his views on politics and religion and severely criticizing the city-state's leaders, including late Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew. Yee was imprisoned for six weeks in September on charges of hurting religious feelings of Christians and Muslims after repeatedly breaching bail conditions following a four-week prison sentence he served in July last year on the same charges. He was also due to be called up for mandatory military service. His U.S. lawyer, Sandra Grossman, told the South China Morning Post on Saturday that Yee was likely detained because he entered the country on a tourist visa despite an intention to apply for asylum. She said Yee would have to undergo a "credible fear interview" by an asylum official who would assess if he faces a credible fear of persecution or torture back home. She said the process usually takes a few days, but the holiday season could delay it. He would then appear before an immigration judge, but that could take years because of backlogs in the immigration system. Yee, who won a local filmmaking prize at age 13, ruffled feathers in Singapore with a video blog laced with expletives as the city-state was mourning Lee's death in March last year. Such open criticism and lampooning of leaders is rarely seen in Singapore, where laws are strictly enforced. The government of the multiethnic state says Yee crossed the red line on religion when he mocked Christians and Muslims and the law had to be enforced on him to protect racial and religious harmony. Robertson said Yee has faced intensive government surveillance and monitoring of his public and online comments. "Amos Yee is the sort of classic political dissident that the U.N. Refugee Convention was designed to protect, and Human Rights Watch hopes the U.S. will recognize his asylum claim," he said in a statement.

    I had similar registration problems too. So after problems with registration with first email, I abandoned that and use another email to register as user. The second email worked, but I got the 2 replies from VEP with 2 links. I tried the first reply with the first link -- nothing happened. When I used the second reply with the second link, everything worked. So maybe VEP website design not so good or so overwhelmed that it didn't respond properly?

    I experienced the same thing when registering as a user with my email on 1st Jun. Only after almost 1 week did VEP reply with activation link. After activating with the link provided, then can login as a user and submit car/owner details. (1 registered user, not necessarily the vehicle owner, can submit more than 1 vehicle/owner detail.) Upon submission, the website will tell you to: 1. Don't have to do anything yet; 2. VEP will inform you where and when to collect RF label. TIP: Tried to use option to submit PDF file from LTA with vehicle details, but didn't work (so make life easier). In the end had to manually fill in the vehicle details and submission was successful.

    How to clear kitchen choked floor piping?

    When my toilet/washing machine floor trap choked, I tried you commercial drain cleaners, baking soda & vinegar, the "snake" wire tool and even using bare hands to dig out the stuff. None of these worked. Called my friendly plumber and he cleared it within 3 mins with a standard mop. It's not the mop. It's how he used the mop.

    Need help with Engenius ESR9850

    Maybe there's nothing wrong with your router. Maybe your PC accidentally connect to your neighbour's unsecured WIFI. Best way to test -- switch off your router/wifi. If you can still get Internet, then you are using someone else's broadband.

    Repairs at Borneo Motors

    I have send my car for accident related repairs at Borneo Motors 4 times over the last 5 years. Generally they are very helpful in settling the paper work, and their repair standards are high. One time, I allowed a third-party rental car company workshop to do the repairs. Also hassle free, but the paint job was not of a very high quality.
