  1. Fellow forummers: If u are think of buying anything from this shop esp aircon and also especially now when they have their expo sale. my advice is "forget abt it, buy elsewhere to save the unnecessary headache". My sad story (I am not a good writer and I make it short and sweet and also I am not trying to make people sympathize me) started the day when their installer came to my new flat to install the unit. See pic on their "superb" work done. My request on the work can be done as it is not limited by the building design. Upon seeing this, I questioned the installer, he told me it was done according to my reno contractor's idea. I am not sure what was the instruction given to him so I won't go indepth on this esp when both parties will claim they are correct. the installer being an specialist in the aircon industry, should know how ugly the end result would be yet he proceeded. Doesn't he know that we human want is beauty? so I asked him to rework, he replied not possible as the job is completed. I angry and lost so I called the Salesperson. this is what he told me, not the actual transcript but the content is real. me: the way the installer run the trunking is horrible, I want a rework sales: there is a charge incurred for all rework. me: har? but this is something unacceptable (mms-ed him the photo of the work) sales: once job is completed, it is completed. any rework, it is chargeable. our installer will not go wrong, he did what he was told. as an owner, u must be there to supervise the work, if not your contractor must be present.. me and sales keep on arguing... blah...blah... sounds stupid that I need to be present all the time when the work is done by "specialist". Supervising the "specialist" is an insult to them. had I known, I rather "insult" them than to make myself miserable I bought from them is because they sell themselves as an aircon specialist and I trust that nothing will go wrong but I was wrong Not the end yet..
  2. ok, it';s those typical phone call scammer, saying i won 2nd prize, blablabla... and i've told him nicely im not interested and dont call back initially, then they keep calling insisting i explain why im not interested and i F him upside down asking him not to call again and hung up.... for th past 2-3 days, the keep calling back from time to time and i just ignore/cancel it without answering and at time, they my phone can show some 21 missed call.... damn those f***er... anyone kena before and how to stop them from calling?.... just wonder can i divert their call to 999 thru call diverting?...btw, call barring need to pay?........

  5. Met this Deaf and Mute Russian Biker along the walkway around OG (Albert Complex)/Fu Lu Shou/The Bencoolen, saw him asking passerby to read his notes but most people walking there are Chinese and many of them can't read a word of English and so they just walk away. I went over and donated a few $ to his cause and using my phone's Notes function and key in English to him that most of the passerby along there don't really understand English so I will try to translate it into Chinese Characters and pass it to him this weekend. Me 'England' and 'Chinese' also '1/2 pail water' only I used Google to Translate and this is the result: "I want to enter The Guinness book of records as the only deaf and mute individual who has traveled all the former soviet union, europe, africa, australia, asia and the americas on a motocycle.

  9. Anyone from the old primary school up above the hill? The school name is Balestier hill primary school and I'm talking about the 1970s. Not the current one but the old building. There was a puzzle in my mind till today. During that time, we spotted a coffin up above the stage (at the tuckshop) but it was never clear to us whether it is indeed a ''coffin'' above? Anyone from that school in the 1970s period? Do you remember seeing that?

  11. Nostalgic Singapore Car... Photos... On a local board where some of us gather to talk about old or interesting cars, someone managed to get hold of a scanner and put up these photos from the 90s (Guessing from the time/date-stamps). With cars here having a rather limited lifespan (usually 5-10yrs), it is interesting to see how things have changed in a little over 20 years. Some nice details of an Alfa GTV above, followed by more "modern" 33s below. A Rover sitting next to an E28. And how the local BMW dealership's workshop (Performance Motors) used to look. On initial launch, only 3 of these Mercedes SL's were allocated for the local market. I guess eventually, more made it over. I'm guessing this was the local shop for Mercedes Benzo. Hopefully i can dig up more local old car photos i used to have, will post them up once i find em.
  12. SINGAPORE - The police are appealing for information on a man who robbed $3,000 from a SingPost branch at Potong Pasir Community Club on Thursday afternoon (Feb 8). There was no weapon involved and no one was injured. The police said in a statement on Thursday that they received a report of the robbery at about 1.30pm. The male suspect had walked into the branch wearing a white surgical mask and allegedly demanded the female staff to hand over all the money, the statement said. "The female staff immediately ran into a room for safety. The male suspect then climbed over the counter and made off with about $3,000 in cash that was placed in the drawers." The male suspect was wearing a black cap, a black sweater, blue jeans and black shoes, and was also carrying a black sling bag. He was last seen running in the direction of Upper Serangoon Road, along Potong Pasir Avenue 1. Police investigations are ongoing. Anyone with information can call the police hotline on 1800-255-000 or submit information online at www.police.gov.SG/iwitness http://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/courts-crime/man-robs-3000-from-singpost-branch-police-appealing-for-information?utm_campaign=Echobox&utm_medium=Social&utm_source=Facebook&xtor=CS1-10

    Is Singapore Safe From Earthquakes ?

    Most pples will say that SG is safe from earthquakes but ......... yahoo news: Earthquake: Is Singapore in danger? A second 7.4 magnitude quake hit Nepal on Tuesday, just three weeks after a deadly earthquake struck Kathmandu in Nepal and killed over 8,000 people. Early Wednesday morning, a 6.8 magnitude earthquake struck off the coast of northeastern Japan. The string of deadly quakes came as a surprise to many, but scientists say that the phenomenon of earthquakes was actually a result of a disaster that started about 50 million years ago. A lot of quakes are reported in the Ring of Fire, however, Singapore residents need not worry too much. According to the National Environment Agency, Singapore is in a fairly safe zone where earthquakes are concerned, as it is located about 400 km from the nearest known earthquake source. The closest experience to an earthquake in Singapore come from the weak tremors felt by some as a result of shock waves that travel from distant earthquakes, mainly those that strike Sumatra. Nevertheless, a report citing a study conducted by researchers at Nanyang Technological University in the 1990s states that there is still risk of an earthquake, albeit a small one, based on incidents of ground motions in Singapore between 1833 and 1995. To break it down, there are four types of earthquakes – tectonic, volcanic, collapse and explosion. The most common form of earthquake is the tectonic earthquake, which happens when rocks against the earth’s crust breaks due to forces created by movement of the tectonic plates. Volcanic earthquakes, as the name explains, occur in conjunction with volcanic activity. Collapse earthquakes are small quakes that happen underground, while explosion earthquakes are a result of the explosion of nuclear and chemical devices. The quake Nepal experienced was a manifestation of the ongoing convergence between the Indo-Australian and Asian tectonic plates that built the Himalayas. Earthquakes manifested by the same tectonic plates in the past include the Bihar 8.2 magnitude quake in 1934 that killed 10,000 people and the 7.5 magnitude quake in Kashmir in 2005 that killed around 80,000 people. While seismologists have come up with many ways of predicting earthquakes, none have been accurate. The probability and rough estimate of the location of an earthquake can be calculated but only mother nature can be sure of the exact time and location. link: https://sg.news.yahoo.com/earthquake--is-singapore-in-danger-----065221150.html
  14. Recently I received a phone survey from someone who claimed to work for a company in Hong Kong wanting to setup branch here. Few weeks later, they said they are having some event at JB, Tebrau City Jusco shopping complex on one of the Sunday and invited me to attend. I did not go to the event. 2 weeks later they called me up again and said I have won their 2nd prize (cash prize) All the activities are conducted in Mandarin with over 10-15 phone calls. So far they did not ask me to buy anything but said to verify my identity and asked a lawyer from Hong Kong to contact me. Basically they got my NRIC number, d.o.b., my bank account number (say for the purpose to crediting the price money). The way I look at it, these are information easily obtainable with various technic (e.g. dumpster diving) and I have not much to lose so I gave them these data. (In one of my previous job, when running a lucky draw, we easily get about 1 million records of these information even with address and family member's information, so if this is a scam, why go through so much trouble ?) My questions are: - has anyone else received similar phone calls? - How can they take advantage of these information collected if this is a scam? - What else do I look out for?

    Taxi fare & charges in singapore

    COME next Monday, prepare to fork out as much as 49 per cent more for a cab ride, now that ComfortDelgro, Singapore's biggest player, has unveiled its 'overhaul' of the current taxi fare structure. This follows what it says was an 'in-depth review' of the taxi industry to address commuters' concerns, simplify the fare structure and encourage call bookings 'to better match the demand and supply of taxis'. City Area Surcharge - Up First, to incentivise more cabbies to ply the Central Business District during peak hours, the city area surcharge, which is now $1, will be raised to $3 between 5pm and midnight from Mondays to Saturdays. The lack of taxis in the city at the end of office hours on weekday evenings is a frequent complaint from passengers, the company noted. For drivers who are afraid of paying Electronic Road Pricing charges to enter the city and risk not getting a passenger, ComfortDelgro says it will even pay an 'ERP rebate' to cabbies who cannot land a passenger within 15 minutes of entering an ERP zone. Late Night Surcharge - Up The late night surcharge between 12am and 5:59am daily will be revised back to 50 per cent of the metred fare - instead of the staggered 10 to 50 per cent surcharges now in effect. Will this revive the old problem of 'disappearing taxis' between 11pm to midnight? The company says no, 'given that the City Area Surcharge will be in force right till midnight, giving little reason for taxi drivers in the city to 'hide'.' Peak Period Surcharge - Up Instead of the standard $2 peak period surcharge now in effect between 7am and 9.30am on weekdays and 5pm to 8pm from Mondays to Saturdays, passengers will have to pay an added 35 per cent of their metered fare during those hours. A detailed breakdown of this extra 'premium fare' will be shown on each receipt 'to ensure transparency', the company says. Flag down, distance rate, waiting time - Changed As hinted earlier, the flag down fare will be raised by 30 cents from $2.50 to $2.80 for the first kilometre. But the distance rate and waiting time will also be adjusted to 'more accurately reflect the cost of travel', it added. So instead of upping fares by 10 cents for each set distance or waiitng time, this will soon go up by 20 cents each time. Specifically, every 385 metres for the second to 10th kilometres, and every 330 metres above 10 kilometres. The waiting time will also be raised from the current 10 cents for every 25 seconds to 20 cents for every 45 seconds. Call Booking Fee - Down Bucking the trend of the increases, call booking fees will be cut from $4 to $3.50 during prime time hours, which are 7am to 9.30am and 5pm to 11pm on weekdays. It stays at $2.50 for all other times. 10 to 49 per cent more in overall fares Under the new pricing structure, ComfortDelgro says, the bulk of its passengers who travel during off-peak hours will pay 10 per cent more in fares. All other passengers will be expected to pay between 18 per cent and 49 per cent more. The biggest jump in fares will affect those who take cabs out of the city from Mondays to Thursdays, between 8pm and midnight. Instead of $7.65 currently for an average 9km trip, they'll have to fork out $11.40. With all these changes factored in, ComfortDelgro explained, peak-hour cab fares in Singapore are about the same as Hong Kong's but still only half that of Sydney's. Local fares are also only about a quarter of London's. 'Better match supply and demand' Refering specifically to the current difficulty of getting cabs in the city during peak hours, ComfortDelgro's CEO (Taxi Business), Mr Yang Ban Seng, said: 'We think this fare revamp will better match supply and demand of taxis. Our aim is to try and ensure that more taxis will go to areas where they are needed most and at the times they are wanted most.' Mr Nah Tua Bah, president of the Comfort Taxi Operators' Association, added: "The higher city area surcharge will act an an incentive for drivers to make that trip back into town." Welcoming the increases, a joint statement by six taxi operators' associations called the latest fare adjustments 'fair and timely'. The associations said cab fares should 'reflect the operating cost of the taxi business' and that the primary consideration should be the 'income stability' of drivers. The group urged other taxi companies to follow ComfortDelgro's lead and also adjust their fares 'as soon as possible'. Summary of Fare Adjustments Basic Fare Current Revised Flag Down: $2.50 for 1st km* 1km to 10km: $0.1 for every 210m Above 10km: $0.1 for every 175m Waiting time: $0.1 for every 25sec Flag Down: $2.80 for 1st km* 1km to 10km: $0.2 for every 385m Above 10km: $0.2 for every 330m Waiting time: $0.2 for every 45sec Peak Period Premium $2 flat rate Mon-Fri, 7:00am-9:30am Mon-Sat, 5:00pm-8:00pm (not applicable on Public Holidays) 35% of metered fare Mon-Fri, 7:00am-9:30am Mon-Sat, 5:00pm-8:00pm (not applicable on Public Holidays) City Area Surcharge $1 Mon-Thu, 5pm-8pm Fri & Sat, 5pm-11:30pm $3 Mon-Sat, 5pm-midnight Late Night Surcharge 11:30pm-11:44pm 10% 11:45pm-11:59pm 20% 12:00am-12:59am 35% 01:00am-05:59am 50% Midnight-05:59am 50% of metered fare Current Booking Fee Prime Time: $4 Mon-Fri 7:00am-9:30am 5:00pm-11:00pm Non-Prime Time : $2.50 All other times including Sat, Sun & Public Holiday Prime Time: $3.50 Mon-Fri 7:00am-9:30am 5:00pm-11:00pm Non-Prime Time : $2.50 All other times including Sat, Sun & Public Holiday * For Toyota Crowns and Nissan Cedrics
  16. Hi bro, I am driving a silver car and intend to wrap the whole car black. Do i need approval from LTA or just inform LTA? There is no information on LTA site. Thanks in advance. Rgds
  17. I was just thinking, if LTA make it compulsory for every vehicle to install a camera for their car, and when any accident happens, it is mandatory to submit the video plus account within 24 hours, wont it solve the problems of erroneous claims? the videos from both drivers will give a very accurate depiction of what actually happened from both positions, and we wont even need witness. Confirm objective. If they can make every car install 3rd brake lights (cant rem when), and also the IU, maybe the cam will be a good move?
  18. Any can recommend where to go? Need to recover data from my damaged drive. Thanks
  19. here's the story Editor's jail, fine reduced 1 1/2-year jail term for dangerous driving reduced upon appeal By Selina Lum IT WAS a day of twists and turns for a newspaper editor in the High Court yesterday as she saw her 1 1/2-year jail term slashed to a day and her $12,000 fine reduced to $2,000. Changes after appeal THE FIRST CHARGE Causing the death of pillion rider Melania Melaniawati, 24, by dangerous driving. Maximum sentence under the law: Up to five years' jail. ... more Lim Hong Eng, the 56-year-old executive editor of Shin Min Daily News, was in court to hear the outcome of the appeal against her sentence for knocking down and injuring a motorcyclist and killing his female pillion rider. The appeal against her conviction was rejected, but the 1 1/2-year jail term dealt by a lower court was cut to a day's jail and a $12,000 fine on two charges. Then, later in the morning, defence lawyers and the prosecutor ran some checks and realised there had been a sentencing error in one of the two charges. The mistake was for the charge of causing death by dangerous driving, for which she was jailed a day and fined $10,000. The Road Traffic Act does not make a provision for a fine for this offence, only jail time. So it was back to court after the lunch hour. Justice Choo Han Teck set aside the $10,000 fine but did not increase the jail term, saying: 'In the circumstances, it will not be right to increase the custodial sentence to the detriment of the accused.' He made it clear, however, that this was a one-off case and was not to be used as a sentencing precedent. Lim will thus only have to go to jail for a day for the charge of causing death by dangerous driving, and pay a $2,000 fine for the other charge. Her counsel Subhas Anandan later told reporters that his client will donate $10,000 to charity. Really a shocker. Just goes to show some people can get away with anything, even when one's at fault.

  24. I have this colleague who is quite a nice guy. However, he has this habit of digging his nose whenever the opportunity arises. He is not conscious about it and could dig it right in front of people throughout a group conversation. It affected me as we share the common door knob to exit the workplace. Sometimes, he even touched my mouse to access some data on the computer screen. I am sure our folks here might have encountered people around us with similar habit. How to hint to him without hurting/offending him? He is quite a nice guy though.
  25. Anyone can advise on this? The shortest way, the recommended R&R along the highway, the actual Exit from NSH heading all the way up to Penang. Thanks for sharing and any inputs appreciate!!!
