  2. Paint protection services in Singapore are increasingly gaining popularity, and it's easy to understand why. Despite our best efforts of regularly washing and cleaning our cars, it can be mightily difficult and frustrating to keep our cars looking in tip top condition. A devilish combination of our erratic hot and wet weather, combined with the dust in the air that comes from numerous sources (such as the constant construction projects around the island or simply just the sheer number of cars on the road), means that it is virtually impossible to drive from one place to another without getting your car dirty. New Age Polish started out as a single-man mobile service, and has grown in size as well as services offered Many drivers have also wisened up to the value of paint protection systems, which help to both mitigate the build up of dirt on their cars, as well as helping to provide a high gloss finish that allows the car to look consistently spanking new. Of course, car grooming services also offer us a particular convenience that all Singaporeans love - time. It saves drivers the precious hours needed to repeatedly wash and polish their cars. After all, who really wants to spend tedious hours during the weekends cleaning your car when you could be spending more time with your loved ones, or even just in bed? Who is New Age Polish and what services does it offer? New Age Polish is a car grooming centre that focuses mainly on paint protection. Starting out as a single-man mobile service, the company opened a retail store in 2015. Helmed by Gabriel, the permanent retail store allows him to expand his range of services and equipment to offer a more comprehensive range of grooming services and packages. One aspect that distinguishes Gabriel from others is also the fact that he is a very hands-on boss, undertaking much of the work himself, together with his small team. At New Age Polish, the range of services include quality foam wash, polishing and waxing, pest fumigation, steam cleaning and anti-bacteria treatment, leather restoration, leather protection coating, as well as the two main services of paintwork restoration and paint protection coating. Paintwork restoration is one of the more popular services, and Gabriel highlights that many drivers with older cars tend to take up this particular service. It allows seven to eight-year old cars to look brand new. New Age Paint Protection System New Age Polish offers three paint protection regimes tailored for different customers The main focus for New Age Polish is its Paint Protection System. Developed to counter many of the issues that drivers face, such as damage from chemical and environmental contaminants, paint oxidation and the loss of the paint's hydrophobic effect, much research has been undertaken over the years to source for the right products to offer the highest level of paint protection. [at New Age Polish offers paint protection regimes: Kubebond Nano Ceramic Coating (Kubebond Diamond 9H). Priced to cater to customers with different requests ($380 and up), the three packages offer high gloss levels, scratch resistance, chemical resistance, protection against UV exposure and oxidation, hydrophobic water repellent effect, smoothness and durability. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r--sMCYL4gs These paint protection systems help to prevent against water marks, dirt and algae, as well as presenting a high-gloss wet look finish at all times. It is also wallet-friendly, as it drastically reduces cleaning frequencies, with no more polishing or waxing required. These paint protection systems are suitable for all paint finishes, including matt paint. Both New Age Ceramic and New Age Hybrid also come with a three-year warranty period, and have a durability of three and five years respectively. New Age Polish Pte Ltd is located at 11 Yishun Industrial Street 1 #01-112 North Spring Biz Hub S768089. To find out more, you can visit the company's Facebook page.

  3. I know there is a makan corner section but decided to ask here since L&E section is more commonly accessed by fellow MCFers & thus more updated info can be gleamed. Not looking forward to those ex restaurants but cheaper, more "affordable" places please. So any fellow beef lovers like to share?
  4. HDB to build diverse flat types, keep prices affordable for housing estates in prime locations source: https://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/housing/prime-areas-to-be-kept-diverse-and-inclusive-with-range-of-hdb-flat-types-for?utm_medium=social&utm_source=telegram&utm_campaign=sttg SINGAPORE - A range of housing types will be built in upcoming estates in prime locations such as the Greater Southern Waterfront (GSW) to ensure that all public housing estates will have a good mix of Singaporeans, said National Development Minister Desmond Lee. These include smaller housing types such as two-room flats for seniors and rental housing for low-income families, depending on the planning parameters and the needs of different housing types, but are "deliberately injected", he said in an interview with Lianhe Zaobao. Mr Lee acknowledged the "lottery effect" of these well-located Housing Board flats, which may result in a "likely windfall" for home owners who sell these government-subsidised build-to-order (BTO) flats on the resale market. There is the issue of "inclusiveness and diversity" when these flats are allowed to be resold after the five-year minimum occupation period, he said. "If it's going to be sold and transacted at high resale prices, then there is a risk that only well-off Singaporeans can buy (flats in) those estates. And then of course, the character of the estates will change and it may be priced beyond the reach of ordinary Singaporeans," he said. "We do not want to have estates that are gentrified and that only the wealthy can afford to live (in). We want to have a good mix." To achieve that, besides introducing diverse housing, he noted that the pricing of flats must be kept affordable at the first sale by HDB and also in resales. "We may need a series of other measures to ensure that if resale is permitted for these flats, that they remain affordable for generations to come," said Mr Lee, without specifying the measures. "People will, of course, pay what they believe the market can bear in order to get these very good flats and very good locations. So some of these measures would have to cover all these fronts," he added. He cited GSW as one example of a prime site but noted that the timeline is "quite far down the line". "But there may be other sites with very prime attributes that might be rolled out in the months and years ahead," he said. Mr Lee said HDB will seek public suggestions and feedback through engagement sessions over the next few months. "We will want to make sure that these public discussions are held, people's views are obtained and then we can come up with a model that we could potentially apply in the near term," he said. More on this topic Spotlight on 'lottery effect' of flats slated for Keppel Club site Art gallery, sky taxis and seawater lagoons: Experts say endless possibilities for Greater Southern Waterfront First announced in 2013, the GSW comprises 30km of coastline stretching from the Gardens by the Bay East area to Pasir Panjang. The 2,000ha mega waterfront development - six times the size of Marina Bay and twice the size of Punggol - was sketched out by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong in his 2019 National Day Rally speech. About 9,000 private and public housing units will be built on the site of Keppel Golf Club as part of the GSW, with future housing available on other sites too. Mr Lee said that even as HDB is constantly reviewing and evolving public housing policies to be responsive to Singaporeans' changing demographics and aspirations, core values remain. "We want to keep the character of all our HDB estates inclusive and diverse and to enable Singaporeans, ordinary Singaporeans, to also be able to live in parts of Singapore that one will consider as prime," he said.

    Affordable BMW 114i ?

    If only the CAT.A Coe can be cheaper. http://paultan.org/2012/05/13/new-3-door-b...4i/#more-106055 BMW has announced a new 114i engine variant for the new 1-Series, which slots in under the previous baseline petrol model, the 116i.

  14. Post Ma Chi: more affordable motor insurance moving forward? You could thus read that again: "(g) any wilful act and/or wilful negligence of yourself or that of your Authorised driver." Thus, the ordinary 1st party insurance policies are NOT meant as coverage for accidents due to speeding, DUI, reckless/ careless driving, accidents caused by shooting red lights etc etc. Perhaps the government could impose a more fluid tax upon insurers such that any amounts in excess of 20 percent earnings (profits) from motor insurance premiums over an up to 3 yrs declaration period should be taxed at 100% annually (tax free for profits below 20%)- and limits upon the management fees for the insurance scheme from exceeding 20% of premiums collected- thus the care by motor insurance companies across the board to ensure minimal unnecessary overhead costs, insured drivers remain careful and that premiums are kept to minimum so as to remain competitive, since drivers too would be able to insurance shop for the lowest rates. Drivers too will drive less recklessly as they know insurance companies to be careful about every cent paid out. Motor insurance being a 'public good' and compulsory by legislation, ought be run on a 'not-for-profit' basis. Likewise, motor insurance SHOULD not promote the dangerous use of cars as private entertainment/ racing machines that illicitly abuse public roads as personal F1-racetracks/ playgrounds. PS: 'Taxes' imposed upon motor insurance companies for profits in excess of 20% of premiums p.a. should be paid to a fund that subsidizes the care, welfare/ employment etc of hit and run victims wherein no insurer can be identified to compensate for such incidents (i.e. not to accrue as profits/ dividends to insurance co. shareholders). The 20% p.a. profit cap/ management fee cap figure is just a suggestion for consideration, it may be adjusted accordingly as necessary. The regulation suggested here to reduce motor insurance premiums is necessary due to the fact that motor insurance, according to the 'Motor Vehicles (Third-Party Risks and Compensation) Act (CHAPTER 189)' is compulsory; I am however, NOT advocating such regulations for other forms of life/ healthcare/ hospitalization etc insurance insofar that such insurance, unlike motor insurance in Singapore, are not legal necessities.

  17. saw this article published on CASE website are we missing something here? or am i the only one feeling this statement is off "331 out of 611 (54%) stalls sold cooked food at $2.50 or lower", and i dont think the $2.50 portion is sufficient for most of us, even if it is really true http://www.case.org.sg/news.html 9 June 2011 Media Release HAWKER FOOD REMAINS AFFORDABLE FOR SINGAPOREANS According to a survey conducted by the Consumers Association of Singapore (CASE), prices of cooked food sold in non air-conditioned coffeeshops and hawker centres remain affordable in April. The survey focused on five common food items: chicken nasi briyani, chicken rice, fishball noodles, roti prata (plain) and mixed vegetables rice (consisting of two vegetables and one meat), based on the cheapest single portion available. A total of 611 stalls in four zones– North, South, East and West, were surveyed. Survey findings show that 331 out of 611 (54%) stalls sold cooked food at $2.50 or lower. Chicken rice stalls hold the highest percentage (about 70%) of stalls selling their hawker fare at $2.50 or less. However, majority of Chicken Nasi Briyani stalls retail at $4.50. Figures 2.1 to 2.5 in the Appendix show the percentage of stalls with food prices in a particular range. CASE also came across 28 stalls that offered competitive prices on food items and would like to highlight them. Please refer to figure 3.1 of the Appendix for more details. The survey also found: 1. 4 out of 611 (0.65%) stalls charged for take-away. The amount charged for take-away was 20 cents on average. 2. 11 out of 67 (16.4%) of roti prata stalls required customers to purchase a minimum of 2 pieces of roti prata (plain). 3. The modal prices for chicken nasi briyani, chicken rice, fishball noodles, mixed vegetables rice and roti prata were $4.50, $2.50, $2.50, $2.50 and $0.80 respectively. 4. The majority of stalls displayed their prices clearly on signboards. CASE encourages all hawker stall owners to display the prices of food items prominently so that consumers can make informed choices. In this survey, 2 stalls had inconsistent pricing with what was displayed on their signboards. One of them charged $4.50 for chicken nasi briyani when the signboard displayed a price of $4, while the other stall charged $5 for chicken nasi briyani when the signboard displayed a price of $5.50. In conclusion, the survey findings showed that affordable food is still available at hawker centres and coffeeshops. CASE encourages consumers to patronise stalls that continue to offer good value for money. CASE will continue to monitor the prices of cooked food as we believe it will spur hawkers to keep their prices competitive for consumers. Yeo Guat Kwang CASE President

    Cars have never been this boring

    When was the last time an affordable, mass market car that was launched managed to get you just that little bit hot under the collar with lust or desire? Personally, I can't recall so it must have been donkey years ago. And for good reason. It has been a long time since there has been a bread & butter car that could inspire even a teeniest bit of motoring soul or passion. In fact, I think it has or will get worse in the coming years. Take a look at the line up of affordable cars today and we would struggle to find one that could make car enthusiasts drool or go gaga over. We have a couple of pretenders to the throne (say the Kia Koup). But, really, it seems that this is as good as it gets for normal average Singaporean drivers. If you don't have more than 150 grand to dish out on a car, you can forget about motoring pleasure, soul, passion & what not. For this, I blame the eco-mentalists and green activists. Their constant badgering for improving emissions standards and fuel consumption have led car manufacturers to focus on chasing these boring old figures rather than focusing on horsepower & handling. For one of the biggest victims of this green focus, we don't have to look any further than Honda. For a car marque that used to be steep in racing heritage and made pretty dang good mass market cars just decades ago, it has now stooped to the level of advertising its technological advancements in hybrid technology! A far cry from its glory days I say! Well, this has gone too far and I had had enough of all these eco-silliness. It is, quite frankly, making the car enthusiast in me feel sick. So my first wish for 2011? For car manufacturers to recognize and acknowledge that we still need exciting cars and to stop sacrificing it all just for some emission figures.
  19. Hey mcf-ers, Strange topic to be made as my first, but heck. In need of a place to buy off-the-shelf suits. Why not tailored?
