  1. Beautiful Quotes If you are right then there is no need to get angry And if you are wrong then you don't have any right to get angry. Patience with family is love, Patience with others is respect, Patience with self is confidence and Patience with GOD is faith. Never Think Hard about PAST, It brings Tears... Don't Think more about FUTURE, It brings Fears... Live this Moment with a Smile, It brings Cheers.!!!! Every test in our life makes us bitter or better, Every problem comes to make us or break us, Choice is ours whether we become victim or victorious!!! Search a beautiful heart not a beautiful face. Beautiful things are not always good but good things are always beautiful. Remember me like pressed flower in your Notebook. It may not be having any fragrance but will remind you of my existence forever in your life. Do you know, why God created gaps between fingers? So that someone who is special to you, comes an d fills those gaps by holding your hands forever.

  4. From STOMP: http://singaporeseen.stomp.com.sg/stomp/sg...to_replace.html Posted on 20 May 2012 Car insurance company quotes me $4,950 -- just to replace Camry's rear bumper STOMPer yoshiki17 received a letter from a car insurance company that stated the replacement of a 2007 Toyota Camry's rear bumper would cost $4,950. The STOMPer had checked with several workshops and was quoted a maximum of $950. Said the STOMPer: "Overcharging for car repair. "I received a letter from a motor insurance company stating that the replacement of a 2007 Toyota Camry's rear bumper would cost SGD$4950. "Had enquired from several workshops and was quoted SGD$750-950 for a new rear bumper including spray painting and installation that would take approximately 3 days. "Factoring in replacement vehicle rental for five days, all in total should only cost SGD$2.5k-3k. "Is this opportunistic behaviour by appointed workshops of insurance companies?" The photo was edited by the STOMPer.

    Quotes for This Election

    Some inspiring quotes for this GE, mostly stuff that don't really happen here, but may it happen someday. Taken from Thomas Jefferson, 3rd President of the US I have the consolation of having added nothing to my private fortune during my public service, and of retiring with hands clean as they are empty. The man who reads nothing at all is better educated than the man who reads nothing but newspapers. The will of the people is the only legitimate foundation of any government, and to protect its free expression should be our first object. No government ought to be without censors & where the press is free, no one ever will. All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. When governments fear the people, there is liberty. Vote wisely
  8. I have received quite of few creative and funny stuff via my emails. Let's put all of these together and have a light moment: Recently, my white MP, nok on my door, and very kek ki.. Say 'I've worked so hard, so vote for me', 'Or rubbish won't be cleared, in your vicinty'... I said 'Dear MP of my GRC', 'Dun remember u, so please pardon me'.. 'I only saw you on TV', 'Dozing off and jiak liao bee'.. Last GE I voted for thee, 2% up in GST.. Cut CPF and up utility, Are still very clear in my memory.. 5 years later, then you come to me, Fresh from your slumber of ivory.. Say that only, you can help me, Escape from a life of poverty.. Just take a drive on CTE, Count the number, of all the gantries.. Or squeeze a ride on the MRT, That has not been cleared for me My life since the last GE, Has been downhill though I voted PAP.. If I vote the same for your sleeping spree, I can expect the same misery... So! this time round, I vote for somebody, Who will kachiao you, to productivity.. Forms fill wrong, no big deal to me, If there's someone to speak up for ah bee.. So dear MP of GRC, If life no improve, vote u cho simi?

  15. BT 15 Aug NEW motor insurance quotation system capable of calculating multiple quotes is set to cut waiting time and increase consumer choice. The web-based software platform is expected to include big names in motor insurance as well as the niche players among the 27 insurance companies offering motor policies in Singapore. The AMQS, or Automatic Multiple Quotation System, was developed by insurance agent Ken Loh Yoon Kian over four years. Mr Loh declined to reveal how much money he has invested in it but he said he is gratified by the response - the Association of Singapore Insurance Agents is now exploring the best way for its agent members to work with the system, and two of Singapore's biggest motor insurers are also said to be considering participating. Mr Loh, a former Economic Development Board scholar, used to work in investment promotion. When he entered the insurance industry in 1999, he realised that offering a prospective customer a range of quotations involved a fair amount of manual calculations. 'If a customer wants a quote, an insurance agent has to give him a few to compare against. Such a comparison requires the agent's experience because he has to choose two or three quotes - from a pool of about five to six - that best suit the customer,' he said. As a new agent at the time, Mr Loh questioned this reliance on an agent's experience. 'I came into the industry without a special network relationship or any other competitive advantage. So I decided to do things more efficiently,' he said. He chose to go the way of computerisation but could not find software in the market to help him. 'So I got my hands dirty and became a new breed of agent - one that can write software,' he said. The programming work was not easy for him, he claims, but he was competent enough as he had previous experience writing a computer program for his Master's thesis in electrical engineering while at university. 'It was an act of expediency,' he said. As a result, the old way of calculating 'dead' formulae was thrown out and a spreadsheet was used, allowing for several insurers' premiums to be computed at one go. But as insurance companies gradually went online or began computerising the premium computation formula themselves, it created a proliferation of separate software systems. To overcome this new obstacle, Mr Loh developed a full-blown, web-based software to 'talk' to the various insurers' web-servers, thus creating the first online motor insurance quotation system that calculates multiple quotes with their premiums, excess values, workshop restrictions, and other details before ranking them for easy comparison. 'With these tabulated quotations, we can show a range of comparative quotes,' said Mr Loh. 'It is as good as having many agents simultaneously keying into different softwares to get quotations from several insurers and compiling the results into a single table, except that this is now done automatically and instantly.' He said the advantages are speed, manual labour savings and accuracy. The traditional manual method of computing premiums takes 15 minutes per customer. The automated alternative does it in under five minutes. All that is required is for the agent to input the necessary personal data, such as age and years of no-claims discount. The standard quote that appears is binding on the insurer, assuming that the information provided is correct. Mr Loh said the main benefit of the AMQS is that it cuts down processing time and cost by providing an integrated interface for quick comparison. 'An agent using this system will have a better tool to do a quick analysis. As for the consumer, this will serve him better because it's a transparent system. Moreover, when agents achieve labour saving, cost goes down and consumers will also benefit.'
