  1. Son of Car Groomer’s Boss Also Allegedly Smoked In The Car The car grooming business is one that’s largely based on trust. After all, clients have to leave their cars at the workshop for days or even weeks without supervision. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that a car owner by the name of Mr Eric Lau was enraged to find his car misused after collecting it from a car groomer. On Sunday (23 Dec), Mr Lau wrote a lengthy Facebook post warning other car owners about the errant car groomers that he had the misfortune of dealing with. Here’s his Facebook post in full. We’ll summarise it after the jump. 273km clocked in 5 daysAccording to Mr Lau, on 3 Nov, he brought his car to Glozz Factory Mobile Car Grooming Services for spray painting and an internal grooming job. Before handing his car over to the groomers, Mr Lau took a photo of his odometer for precautionary reasons. For the uninitiated, an odometer is an instrument used to measure the distance travelled by a vehicle. When Mr Lau collected his car 5 days later, he was stunned to find his odometer reading increase by a whopping 273km. That’s not all. The sound system in Mr Lau’s car was also adjusted to the maximum level, and the memory card slot on his dashcam wasn’t in its original position. The car owner called the workshop’s owner, Mr Andy Goh, demanding answers. Mr Goh revealed over the phone that the car was also full of cigarette ash when he was working on it the day prior to the collection. After some investigation, Mr Goh admitted that Shawn – his business partner’s son – had taken the car for a joyride in Malaysia. Suspicions confirmedEnraged, the car owner lodged a police report and demanded to have a sit-down with Mr Goh and his business partner, Mr William Chng. Mr Lau’s suspicions were confirmed during the meeting as the car groomers admitted that Shawn had: Drove the car into Malaysia Smoked in the car Blasted the car’s stereo Understandably, Mr Lau then demanded compensation from the car workshop owners for a breach of contract. However, Mr Goh suggested that Mr Lau deal with Mr Chng in private, so as to protect the reputation of his business. Illegal RequestMr Chng eventually agreed to compensate Mr Lau for the misuse of his car, and instructed his lawyer to prepare a private settlement letter. Initially, Mr Lau was told to wait while Mr Chng’s lawyer prepared the necessary documents. However, 2 months later, according to the Facebook post, Mr Chng started ignoring Mr Lau’s calls. When he finally answered, Mr Chng said that his lawyer required the police report in his possession to prepare the legal document, and tried to “buy” it from him. Feeling that something was amiss, Mr Lau called the police, who informed Mr Lau that it was illegal to “buy” a police report due to confidential reasons. Check your odometer before visiting a car workshopMS News has reached out to Glozz Factory and Mr Lau for more information regarding the alleged incident. Meanwhile, let’s hope both parties find a mutually agreeable resolution to the incident. For the rest of us, if there’s one lesson to be learnt, it’s surely the importance of checking your car’s odometer before handing it over to the car workshop. source: https://mustsharenews.com/car-groomer-joy-ride/?fbclid=IwAR3g28kvtIGhRM2eAUGKfuaByFesgjKnX9Tg_ej7y_GILpGIBoJmOm5YRHs
  2. Unbeliveable when I saw the post here: http://www.limsimi.com/johor-bahru-others/...mp-more-petrol/
  3. I am really glad the email saga is fixed :) On a separate note: Can I ask: Can we be allowed to edit our posts pasts the usual 15 min limit. IMO, it's too restrictive - revising the first post in a thread for example, allows us to add more info, links and other useful stuff to the thread, so we keep track of useful posts that appear in the middle of the thread. This makes it easier to find important info.. Eg, a thread begun on a car owner's thread, can be edited along the way, to add FC links, places to buy accessories, places to service etc.. Another reason to edit may just be erroneous info, or stuff that a poster regrets, or a picture that was not nice. This can promote more peace and let everyone get along more.. So how about it
  4. Just to check with the car owners here I am thinking of doing that if got lobang haha

  12. SAF to ease ban on camera phones in camps By Jermyn Chow The Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) is reviewing its blanket ban on all camera- equipped cellphones inside military camps, paving the way for restrictions on such phones to be eased. The Straits Times has learnt that under proposed changes, all SAF personnel will be allowed to bring these phones into all military installations islandwide, so long as the cameras inside them are removed. Responding to queries, the Ministry of Defence (Mindef) confirmed yesterday that it is 'exploring ways' to allow its personnel to use the camera-equipped smartphones, 'while maintaining our current security policy on disallowing personal image-capturing devices to be used on Mindef and SAF premises'. Spokesman Desmond Tan also said the review is being done as Mindef recognises the 'potential benefits provided by smartphones'.
  13. Since there has been a lot of controversy about the People's Association (PA) being pro-ruling party and that the PA Chairman is the sitting Prime Minister, can Parliament pass a bill to change the Constitution to allow the Elected President (EP) be the PA Chairman instead? In the first place, PA is supposed to be apolitical & is set up to promote harmonious relations amongst the people and so many are comfortable about the ruling party's PM to be it's Chairman. The latest uproar about a opposition MP having his 7th lunar month celebration invitations retracted because the PA-sanctioned activity did not allow political figures attending these celebrations is a very good example which one may draw conclusions that partisan politics is at play. The purists may come out and argue that no the system is fine and if it ain't broke don't fix it. Besides the EP has already got his hands full dealing with his duties. I beg to differ because our EP as the head of state is supposed to be above politics and is the best person to lead PA such that no one can accuse it being used a political instrument to influence folks on the ground.

  15. Chance upon this news and I don't know if most people knew about it.....I for 1 do not know HSBC Fine Print Submitted by hallion on April 27, 2011 - 8:48pm HSBC upgraded their ATM cards in the past several months, Customers were told within a few weeks the old card will expire even know I still had months if not 1 year to left, all sounds good. What HSBC didn't tell their customers that once you use started using the new card your old conditions agreement was void and new agreement give the bank the right to sell your personal details all in small fine print ! I have looked at my old ATM card customers agreement (Small Print) and the new customers agreement side by side, HSBC has added this clause into the new customers agreement, tell you that HSBC has the right to pass on / sell your personal details for marketing etc. Since I've started using my new ATM, I get SMS / calls selling services etc by HSBC or agents. Today I was in my Local branch, 2 other people were complaining about the same think. HSBC staff were very red faced when this was brought to thier attention in black and white about the "upgrade " to the small print. Every customer need to be a where of this new clause.
  16. Guns, grenades and iPads for Singapore soldiers The ministry said it was also planning to issue the devices to other servicemen next year. -AFP Mon, Jun 27, 2011 AFP SINGAPORE - New recruits to Singapore's military, air force and navy are to get a new standard-issue item of equipment besides their rifle - the iPad. The defence ministry said Monday it will be issuing "about 8,000" of the sleek, touch-screen tablet computers - already wildly popular with the city-state's tech-savvy youth - to recruits from November. The ministry said it was also planning to issue the devices to other servicemen next year. The cheapest iPad2 device currently retails in Singapore for S$668. Defence chief Neo Kian Hong said adopting the iPad would allow the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) to take advantage of the technological abilities of the city-state's youth. "By exploiting the use of popular and current information and communications technology, we are able to harness our advantage of today's technologically savvy servicemen," the Straits Times newspaper quoted him as saying. Troops can use the iPad's built-in camera to take photos and video clips in the field which can be uploaded to the SAF's online platform, LEARNet. Soldiers can use these photos and videos to carry out post-mission assessments, the newspaper said. Soldiers can send questions to their commanders through a live messaging system and group chat discussions can be held, it added. The SAF said it was working with private contractors to design apps - micro-programs tailor-made for mobile devices with a wide range of functions - for servicemen. Singapore maintains a conscript-based military and its armed forces are among the best-equipped in Asia. Every able-bodied male citizen and permanent resident aged 18 and above must undergo two years of military training.

  21. I think some might know by now, but not me sigh! Was at CIQ today and boy was it jammed for a weekday. Finally arrived at the immigration. In front of me was an Altis SG?527? (see pic below) and the driver did not have the touch n go card to pay the toll. He came to me to borrow mine so that he can get thru the toll. And being a nice guy, I obliged. And it was a mistake! When it was my turn to pay for my toll, the machine refused to accept. Desperate, I called for help and a CIQ lady came over with a stack of touch n go cards. First thing she asked was whether did I allow my card to be shared. I was bloody shocked when I heard that! She told me the card cannot be shared and I have no choice but to buy another one to get pass the toll. KNN, boh pian liao, lan lan bought another one, and waste RM10 for the new bloddy card! All thanks to me being so damn stupid helpful to the driver of the Altis. It just adds to my dislike of Toyota drivers :P Anyway, if you are the driver and reading this, or any friends who knows this guy..... THANKS A LOT!!!!! You can pm me and buy that additional Touch n Go card I have. And please, don't do it to another innocent driver. Just get a bloody card for yourself!
