    Any recommended tyre shop

    So far, I've tried AL Tyres (Paya Lebar), Soon Huat (Toh Guan) and Tan Eng Hua (Clementi West). All are honest n reasonable.

    Punctured tyre repair

    A few days ago, i had a slow leak in 1 tyre due to a nail. Went to this shop "Tan Eng Hua Tyre" at Blk 721 Clementi West St 2 (near the Sheng Siong). Very efficient service and cheap, only $8 for a patch. Highly recommended.

    Caltex vs Essomobil vs Shell vs SPC

    juz to share: i'll show SAFRA card for the 14% discount and pay with Citi Dividend card which gives effectively 4.3% discount (provided the charged amount is >$50). Then, plus the Caltex reward points, the total discount is about 19.x% which is good enough for me. (i mean, even if Shell or Esso or SPC has some credit card or reward system that gives 20-21% discount, i'll still go for Caltex which is smoother, quieter and gives consistency in the FC, in my experience)

    Caltex vs Essomobil vs Shell vs SPC

    Caltex clearly is smoother and less noise....also gives me about 0.5 km/L better FC than esso or SPC. (petrol 95)
  5. I zoomed in (using internet explorer's zoom feature), and I think it's not a SC* plate, but it's a SG* plate.

    Will you give way to this kind of person?

    nowadays i live n let live....as long as the guy nvr cause me to jam brake, i'll give way....it's juz a few seconds of time, no big deal.... but talking abt this reminds me of incident last week --- i was turning fr telok blangah rd into harbourfront (the turn-right light junction), n an ass driver merging fr the opp direction didnt give way as he shld, n forced me to super jam brake....my kid was scared n cried...i was so pissed tat i overtook tat ass n stopped in the middle of the road to dare him to come down n talk....he no balls....juz sat in his car....CB!

    Leasing Vs Buying

    today's newspapers had a Suzuki Swift ad tat shows $1048 for lease-n-drive scheme....sounds quite attractive....is it 3-yr or 5-yr period?....anybody has signed up n can share his/her experience?
  11. yes, thanx for the reminder....most importantly the seat belt shld not cut into the neck area of the child....
  12. if the child is 1.35m tall, then he/she doesn't need a child seat booster, n can use the adult seat belt...but i think most pri 1 and pri 2 kids are not tat tall....so it's probably a case of better-than-having-no-protection
