  1. If anyone would like to have some furniture for their home, apparently just driving around could net you some free goods! Whether or not you’ll get them in good condition, however, is another issue. What happened? A driver on the Central Expressway (CTE) was on his merry way when a lorry started hurling furniture onto the road. The white dresser (looks like it?) slid off the top of the lorry straight onto the driver’s path, getting run over and destroyed. Bro almost got hit with a blue shell from Mario Kart. The driver who submitted the video was quoted saying “Lucky didn't hit my windscreen. TP pls watch out for these dangerous overloaded pickup.” Pretty reasonable reaction if you ask me. Online chatter Others agreed, thinking this situation would be dangerous especially for riders. Many blamed the lorry for being irresponsible, as it was overpacked and on the wrong lane (among other reasons). ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

The old adage, ‘it’s better to give than to receive, could not be more relevant here in Singapore where many of us have more than we need. Truthfully, all the shoes (even Louboutins!) or Pinterest-worthyhouse interiors couldn’t put as big a smile on our face as helping a child or family by giving to charity orvolunteering with your kids. If you don’t have extra time to dedicate to helping the charity of your choice, donating your pre-loved (and gently used) items is a great way to give back while minimising wastage. Check out our guide to donating in Singapore, round up the kids and start scouring for things to pass on to somebody who needs it more… Drop off your gently used items from the wish list at any of the collection centres mentioned Help furnish a school for kids in Cambodia Where: White Lodge preschool’s annual charity drive for The Green Umbrella Organisation, a Cambodia-based NGO that focuses on improving the living standards and basic education of children.

Tips for donating to charity Donate meaningfully. Understand the charity’s mission and items most needed by recipients of donations. For example, victims of a natural disaster may require blankets, torch lights, sweaters or canned food, while charities working towards building schools will require furniture or stationery. Donate appropriately. Before you give your things away, consider whether you’d purchase them at a second-hand store. Check items for wear and tear and make sure they’re still in usable or good condition. Otherwise, the donation centre may have to throw them away, and the cost of disposing of masses of donated goods that cannot be used is a serious financial burden faced by many charities. Donate efficiently. Help make the volunteers’ jobs a lot easier by taking a few extra minutes to organise and pack things in groups that go together.

    Am looking to replace my current sofa. Yesterday I chanced upon King Koil sofas displayed at the event square in Marina Square. Price is fairly cheap and looks is almost like what I have now.

  12. So... Story goes I ordered a study table with shelf from ezbuy. Cheap at $45 and looks decent. The problem is... Item arrived and there's no manual. Too many nuts, bolts, screws whatever of all different shapes and sizes, and I suspect even with missing screws. The unfixed table has been left sitting at my house for the past two months. I don't wanna classify it under the white elephant purchase on ezbuy yet, so, my question is... In such a situation where you have furnitures bought online and unable to fix yourself, are there any contacts we can call to get them to fix for us, maybe even use their own tools etc, and then we pay them for labor? TIA.

  19. If you were to ask someone what mass produced auto brand symbolizes the word luxury and you're most likely to hear Mercedes-Benz. Not surprising because when it comes to luxury design in the automotive industry, Mercedes is undeniably one of the best. From the cabin space right up to the exterior styling, a Mercedes just exhumes touches of luxury. Mercedes knows that well too and their design department has brought their unmistakable styling and high quality standards to the Milan Furniture Fair with a collection of designer furniture. Mercedes Benz has collaborated with Formitalia Luxury Group, a leading Italian furniture manufacturer to create a collection of furniture under the Mercedes Benz Style label. According to Gorden Wagener, head of design at Mercedes Benz, both Formitalia and Mercedes Benz stand for top quality and exquisite workmanship which embodies luxury and passion.

  23. http://www.channelnewsasia.com/stories/sin...1214654/1/.html SINGAPORE: A furniture retailer has become the first to be fined for not including the Goods and Services Tax (GST) in the prices of its items on display and in advertisements. Silver River Furniture was fined S$4,000 on Friday on four counts of not complying with GST regulations on price displays. Two other similar charges were taken into consideration. The authorities found two of Silver River Furniture's advertisements in a local English daily in January and February 2012 with small print stating "all prices exclude delivery and GST". Prices of goods in the showrooms also excluded the GST. GST-registered businesses like Silver River Furniture have to show GST-inclusive prices on all displays, advertisements, publications and even written or verbal quotations to the public. The only exception would be businesses in the hotel and food and beverage industries for goods and services that are subject to service charge. The furniture retailer failed to comply with the GST price display requirements, even though it had been warned several times. The maximum penalty is a fine of S$5,000. -CNA/ac
  24. Hello folks, I need advice. I am considering giving away all the furnitures in my house (except for my master bed)....yes everything. The furniture are all well maintained (less than 4 years), some like the dinning table chair still have plastic protective covers intact. I also have half a storeroom of toys to give away. All in good conditions. I do not intend to sell them as since I will not get much for it, why not donate to those who can benefit from it. But my problem is short of Salvation Army, I can't think of any other organization. Any advice on this? Thanks!
