  1. Our paper generals battle rethink 3:1 tactic... 😅
  2. Continue here: Prev thread:
  3. Hi All, I got a problem, the owner of the van I am driving now had passed away which was my late father. I have checked with LTA, I can still drive as long policy still under the estate of (vehicle' owner) while preparing the documents for transfer. How do I get the letter or any identification of being an estate of the deceased owner for my next insurance renewal? From LTA or a lawyer firm and how much will it cost me? The van left 2 years with no loan and the COE cost my dad $86 for a 10 years renewal in 2017. So even I scrape it, I will get not more than $20 or so. Please advise thanks.

    Continue to EAT at our own RISK

    Eight dirty reasons he's resorted to takeaways 5 Jan 2012 Straits Times AS A frequent patron of coffee shops and hawker centres, I have gradually resorted to takeaways rather than eating-in because of the increasing prevalence of these unhygienic conditions: Crockery and cutlery are washed with only plain water and are often oily when used to serve food. Cups are dipped once in soapy water and then plain water, and taken out ready to be used again. Sweaty sellers with sleeveless shirts bending their bodies over food when cooking or serving. Washing of dishes on dirty floors near toilets. Coffee shop toilets are filthy and cannot possibly provide food stall workers with hygienic conditions. Cutlery is placed directly on trays that are wiped with cloth used for cleaning dirty tables. Servers holding the eating part of chopsticks or other cutlery with the same bare hands that hold table cleaning cloth or dirty dishes. The same person who handles cash transactions, handles food as well - with his bare hands. Can the relevant authorities consider prescribing and enforcing higher standards of food stall hygiene so that eating out does not feel like a public health risk? Ho Chee Khuen
  8. Certificate of Entitlement (COE) prices softened at the first tender of 2012 on Thursday, continuing a slide that started in November. COE prices for cars up to 1,600cc ended at $46,889, down from $50,001 two weeks ago. COE for cars above 1,600cc finished at $65,801, down from $70,003. Open category COE, which can be used to register any type of vehicle but ends up mainly for bigger cars, fell from $71,000 to $65,700. The rate for commercial vehicles dipped slightly from $39,589 to $38,699. Motorcycle premiums bucked the trend by rising from $1,481 to close at $1,682. Motor traders said the market has been quiet in past weeks because of the year-end holidays; and because the final sprint to hit 2011 sales targets is now over. http://www.straitstimes.com/Motoring/Story...ory_752160.html

    Oh no, another collectable oldie gona be retained. Hope MHA has the budget for an additional head count & has least some place catered for him. Whatever it is, I sincerely hope he will not be placed in PMO together with the rest. The again, place him here, there or anywhere we still have to pay for his multi-million dollar salary right? Silly me... Ho Peng Kee will continue to have a role in MHA By Tanya Fong | Posted: 17 April 2011 2031 hrs SINGAPORE : Senior Minister of State for Law and Home Affairs Ho Peng Kee will continue to have a role in the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) to spearhead Volunteers Outreach and Development. Associate Professor Ho, who announced his retirement from politics two weeks ago, said Law and Home Affairs Minister K Shanmugam had requested that he continues to play a role in the MHA. Mr Shanmugam had said Associate Professor Ho's stepping down is a big loss, adding that Associate Professor Ho has built up deep linkages with the several volunteer organisations. There are currently 11,000 MHA volunteers. Associate Professor Ho said that he hopes that in continuing as a link to volunteers, he can help lift volunteerism in Singapore. He added that emergency preparedness and resilience cannot be solely driven by the government. Citizens too must play a part in looking out for one another, and this is where volunteerism plays a crucial role. Associate Professor Ho said: "What I have agreed to do is to continue to leverage on my deep ties with these people and to continue to 'ra-ra' them to make their volunteering experience satisfactory. "It is not because I am leaving and they just want to do it for me. It is something which we have been thinking about the key roles volunteers play. Basically volunteers, they need a link. They need recognition. It is a nice platform to continue some association in a relevant way." - CNA/ms
  13. SINGAPORE : Motor insurance premiums will continue to go up this year as insurers look to recoup underwriting losses, said the president of the General Insurance Association of Singapore (GIA), Derek Teo. GIA said the industry's underwriting losses widened to S$48.9 million, some S$4 million higher than in 2009. Last year, the average motor insurance premium rose 6.5 per cent to S$1,100. In 2009, it had increased by a larger 20 per cent. GIA said the two major floods last year led to 428 motor insurance claims amounting to S$11.6 million. The number of reported accidents in Singapore also remained high at some 162,500 last year. Motor insurance accounts for the largest slice of the general insurance pie, making up roughly 40 per cent of the industry. - CNA/al
  14. need your view whether COE will continue to drop...or will rise again? THX in advance
  15. From another forum, really funny! you decide for your children and children's children.
  16. Hi Bros, Need your advice based on whether to change car or not... Current driving a 6 yrs old Hyundai Sonata, it has served me well over the years... Car loan fully paid up... PARF : $16k COE : $12k (based on End Feb 2009) Total rebate : $28k However, like most aging cars, its due for some major overhaul which would cost another $2-3k to allow it to continue for another 4 yrs more... My parents are aging too and finding it hard to get into the car due to it's low sedan profile... With the current low COE but even lower re-sale value of the current car, I am checking whether is it worth it to change a new car or get second-hand car... I am looking at car with higher profile, SUV, Cross-over or maybe MPV... Not really in hurry to change now, can afford to wait for dealers to cut their fat margins first...

  19. Business Times - 23 Jul 2008 Sales of grey imports continue to surge Nissan is now a key parallel import brand due to the iconic GT-R model By SAMUEL EE PARALLEL imports continued to power ahead in the first six months of this year, with 11,860 units registered, or 23.5 per cent of the 50,549 new cars registered in Singapore during that period - up from 2007's 20.9 per cent market share. The parallel import (PI) figure for the first half is contrasted against that of the 36,891 units by the Motor Traders Association of Singapore (MTA). MTA is a grouping of authorised distributors, although not all such distributors here are members. The ratio of PI to MTA sales is about 1:3 - the same as in Q1. This means that for every car sold by a parallel importer, three were sold by MTA members. Last year's ratio was 1:4. In the grey market, Honda currently holds sway, unlike Toyota in the authorised realm. Honda, Japan's No. 2 car maker, accounts for 46.9 per cent of all new parallel imports sold between January and June 2008, while Toyota, the world's biggest car maker, makes up 41.1 per cent. Together, Honda and Toyota constitute 88 per cent of all first-half parallel imports. The pace of Q2 sales has not slowed down compared with Q1. In fact, Q2's volume is slightly higher than Q1's. One interesting feature of H1 2008 is that the Nissan brand is suddenly a PI favourite with 145 units sold during this period, compared with just 27 grey imports for the whole of 2007. This is mainly due to the overwhelming popularity of the high-performance Nissan GT-R sports car (88 units in H1 2008) and the compact Dualis SUV (37 units). The first GT-R arrived here in January as a grey import and it will only be available from authorised Nissan distributor Tan Chong Motor Sales sometime in the second quarter of 2009. The four Japanese brands combined - Honda, Toyota, Suzuki and Nissan - account for a whopping 94.4 per cent of all PI year-to-date sales. Among PI models, the most popular is the Honda Fit with 2,058 units. This diminutive five-door hatchback arrived here last November while the Jazz, the export version from authorised distributor Kah Motor, will only be ready for registration nearer year-end. The Stream compact MPV is No. 2 with 1,865 units, while No. 3 is the domestic Japanese version of the ever popular Toyota Corolla, called the Axio (1,406 units). Also noteworthy is the number of Mercedes-Benz cars - 142 units in the first six months versus 236 for 2007 - a fact that can be attributed largely to the new C-Class model (43.7 per cent of total Merc registrations).
  20. Source: http://www.channelnewsasia.com/stories/afp.../360684/1/.html SINGAPORE: Oil prices continued lower in Asia on Wednesday after fears for economic growth sent them tumbling to their steepest fall in 17 years during New York trading, analysts said. New York's main oil contract, light sweet crude for August delivery, was 64 cents lower at US$138.10 a barrel. The contract sank US$6.44 to close at US$138.74 on Tuesday at the New York Mercantile Exchange. It was the sharpest single-session decline since January 1991. "I was stunned," said Dave Ernsberger, Asia director of global energy information provider Platts. "At one point crude futures fell by US$10 in one hour." Brent North Sea crude for August delivery was 36 cents lower at US$138.39 a barrel following a plunge of US$5.17 to settle at US$138.75 Tuesday in London. Analysts said the heavy falls coincided with US Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke's semi-annual forecast to Congress, in which he said there was a "high degree of uncertainty" about the US economic outlook. "The move down started when Ben Bernanke started speaking on television," Ernsberger said. "It fell while he was talking." Bernanke said the Federal Reserve had lifted its outlook for the US economy this year, in a forecast that appears to show no recession. The central bank projected 2008 growth in a range of 1.0 to 1.6 per cent, up from an April projection of 0.3 to 1.2 per cent. But he warned of numerous risks, including a potentially troublesome rise in inflation and stressed financial markets. "The economy continues to face numerous difficulties, including ongoing strains in financial markets, declining house prices, a softening labour market, and rising prices of oil, food, and some other commodities," Bernanke said. Traders fear that a slowing economy in the United States, the world's biggest oil consumer, will hurt demand for crude. "It's having a justifiably large impact," Ernsberger said. Al Goldman at Wachovia Securities blamed the huge price fall on Bernanke's "gloomy assessment" as well as a cut in the demand forecast by OPEC. The Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) on Tuesday revised down its forecast for growth of world oil demand this year to 1.20 per cent from 1.28 per cent, citing an economic slowdown and high fuel prices. "The new price structure and slower world economy have helped dampen oil demand growth in many regions," OPEC said in its monthly report. After the heavy falls on Tuesday, the oil market was looking ahead to a weekly government report on US energy stockpiles which was to be released later Wednesday. A Platts survey of analysts suggests a fall in US crude stocks of three million barrels and a drop of 1.1 million barrels for gasoline. Oil prices had soared after breaking through US$100 at the start of 2008, and hit peaks above US$147 last Friday. The record prices sparked protests around the world, and fears for economic growth. - AFP/yb

    If Oil Prices Continue To Increase...

    If Oil Prices Continue To Increase....... Devious actions had to be taken.
  22. COE prices continue to head south Prices continue to fall across the board in the latest tender, with the premium for bigger cars posting the biggest drop. -ST Wed, Dec 05, 2007 The Straits Times CERTIFICATES of Entitlement (COE) prices continue to fall across the board in the latest tender on Wednesday, with the premium for bigger cars posting the biggest drop. That premium for cars above 1,600cc dived by more than $3,000 to end at a 10-month low of $13,114. The COE for cars up to 1,600cc fell by more than $2,000 to finish at $12,001 - again one of the lowest this year. The Open COE, used mainly for cars, was down by around $1,500 to end at $15,501. Commercial vehicle COE closed at exaclty $13,000 - about $1,400 lower than its previous rate. Even motorcycle COE ended lower at $1,012 - from $1,052 previously. Motor traders said the market was quiet, as the year-end holidays and an absence of new mainstream models kept buyers away. Bids for the above-1,600cc category were just 15 per cent more than the supply of COEs, reflecting a weak order bank. In the last round, they were 19 per cent above COE supply. Car agents are expected to cut prices in response to the lower premiums. Toyota distributor Borneo Motors for instance, has slashed prices by $2,000 all round. The reduction is expected to stir some interest, which means premiums in the next tender - the week before Christmas - should rise.
  23. German marque beat rivals in S'pore last year with 21% jump in sales By SAMUEL EE (BT 24/1/07) IN LINE with its worldwide performance, Audi was the fastest-growing brand in the luxury-car segment in Singapore too last year, with sales up 21 per cent to 651 units. Audi was the only premium brand to register double-digit growth in Singapore in 2006 With the car as the only premium brand to register double-digit growth, its authorised distributor Premium Automobiles has set sights on selling 850 units this year. The German marque has been growing steadily over the past few years, with 465 units sold in 2004 and 537 units in 2005. Arguably, Audi's main competitors here have a volume of up to six times, but their sales registered only single-digit gains in 2006. For example, fellow German manufacturer BMW saw sales rise 6.1 per cent to 3,680 units, while Mercedes-Benz grew by 6.3 per cent to 3,182 units. Japan's Lexus chalked up 5.3 per cent more units to 2,045. As in previous years, the bulk of Audi models registered last year was of the A4 saloon. But the gap between the 44 per cent of A4 sold and the 33 per cent of the slightly larger A6 sedan chosen by customers is narrowing, according to Premium's chief operating officer, Marc Singleton. 'We anticipate that in 2007, the A6 will equal or surpass the A4 in volume,' he says, adding that the A6's increasing popularity is due to its wider engine options and growing brand recognition. Mr Singleton expects the A4 and A6 to account for 31 per cent each of total Audi sales in 2007. The arrival of new models will also play a part in the A4's lower contribution to overall volume. These include the A3 hatchback and its performance variant, the 265hp turbocharged S3 with quattro all-wheel-drive; as well as fun lifestyle models like the TT Coupe and the R8 supercar. Together, these two segments are expected to account for 28 per cent of total sales next year. Audi's traditional strength in the performance segment will also get a powerful boost this year, with the introduction of models like the RS4 Cabriolet and the 450hp S8 performance limousine. The latter, which has a 5.2-litre naturally aspirated V10, costs $455,000 and is being launched this month. These new sports models are also expected to continue playing a big role in elevating the Audi brand image. 'With the line-up of performance models, 2007 will also mark the year when Audi's offensive in the 'fun' segment will intensify,' said Mr Singleton. 'On the international motoring scene, Audi will launch the A5 Coupe and the RS6 in the second half of 2007. From a marketing viewpoint, the arrival of these models will certainly resurrect and kindle interest in other models within the Audi line-up.' He adds that Premium's after-sales service has also played a key role in its efforts to grow volume. 'Having established a strong foundation in the area of after-sales, Premium Automobiles will capitalise on this competitive advantage by highlighting our commitment to service,' he says. 'The challenge, as Audi grows in volume, is to maintain the high standards of service that our customers have come to expect from us.' Audi is the fastest-growing premium brand in the world, achieving record sales for the 11th year running. The Ingolstadt-based car-maker sold 905,000 cars last year, an increase of 9.2 per cent, and it will be announcing record revenue and earnings soon. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4TfbcvRg7MY
