    24/7 Locksmith Service?

    Earlier on discovered my main gate stuck and could not be opened from the outside, had to stick hand through the iron wrought gap and open from the latch inside. Did a Google search and found this 24-hour service with a "call us anytime" kind of motto. Managed to get through and a rather gruffy guy answered, after a bit of haggling he said "lao siong (brother) today Sunday, tomorrow can or not?" Can I said but your advert said 24-hour and anytime. "Aiyah okay lah okay lah, where you stay and what is the problem?" Told him I needed to get my lock on main gate replaced and how much? $200 he said, my eyes popped and never mind thank you bye bye. I might as well go IMM buy what I need and search Youtube for DIY lock change. Goodness! No wonder we are number 1.

    National Service in Singapore

    Personally, the mindset of the national is if it is FREE we will keep it hence, i dont envisage a possible reduction in our NS duration what i am very worried about is the world is moving so very fast we already had been disadvantaged by NS, resulting in being 2 or 2 1/2 years behind our girls and our foreign classmates in the future it will be worse for our children even 6 months can mean a break or score the economic cycle also is shorter hence, i am just worried about our children am i worrying too much for our kids or should i just relax TAIPEI

  8. For full news:https://www.cnet.com/how-to/disney-disneyplus-streaming-service-name-release-date-shows-movies-to-expect/ Disney is betting big on its 2019 streaming service called Disney+. With Disney CEO Bob Iger calling the streaming service the company's "biggest priority" for 2019, the company is ending its streaming deal with Netflix so it can launch its own service as the exclusive streaming home for Disney movies, TV shows and other original programming. Most of the programming planned for Disney+ leans into the company's franchises like Marvel and Star Wars. Captain Marvel, the Brie Larson superhero flick coming to theaters in March, will be the first of its films to stream on Disney+ rather than Netflix. If you're feeling monthly fee fatigue, sorry, but that's the direction the entertainment business is headed. Netflix trots out original shows and movies on a near daily basis. CBS is pumping its CBS All Access service full of Star Trek shows and other original programs. (Editors' note: CBS is CNET's parent company.) NBCUniversal, HBO-owner WarnerMedia and Apple are all building their own streaming services. Even DC Entertainment now has its DC Universe streaming service full of shows, movies and comics. And then there's Hulu, which will be controlled by Disney after its acquisition of 21st Century Fox. Once Disney+ launches, you'll need to remember to subscribe to Hulu too if you want Disney's edgier material, like four planned Marvel cartoons aimed at adults. Disney+ is where all the company's family-friendly content will live. So is the 2019 Disney+ streaming service something worth paying for? The details that we know so far are below, but basically: If you love Star Wars or Marvel movies, you may find yourself considering yet another subscription before the year is out. On Nov. 8, Disney announced a Star Wars prequel series based on Rogue One and starring Diego Luna, who played Cassian Andor in the original movie. Disney also confirmed the service is developing a live-action Marvel series focused on Loki, a character from the Avengers, which will star Tom Hiddleston reprising the role. Also, the Marvel Defenders shows Netflix has cancelled -- like Daredevil and Luke Cage -- could be revived for Disney+. What's the Disney streaming service? Disney+ streaming service will be a competitor to video streaming services like Netflix. Customers will be able to subscribe with a still-unannounced monthly fee to get access to TV shows, movies and other content from the world of Disney. Disney's other streaming services -- Hulu and sports-focused ESPN+--will run on the same tech platform so you can subscribe to them with the same password and credit card info. But Disney plans for all three to be individual subscriptions. ESPN+ will, clearly, focus on sports. Hulu is expected to continue to stream content from three of the broadcast networks and its own original series, like The Handmaid's Tale and Castle Rock. Hulu will also be where Disney streams its more adult-oriented fare. It's where a new Marvel collection of grown-up animated series will stream, and it's like where Deadpool-like content will live once Disney takes over Fox. Disney+ is supposed to include all of Disney's family-friendly fare. It'll have content from Disney proper, Marvel, Lucasfilm (so: Star Wars), Pixar and National Geographic. When's the release date? You'll be waiting even longer than Avengers 4 for this. Disney says it's shooting for a release in late 2019. The company is expected to reveal many of the specifics about Disney+ on April 11, when it'll hold an investor meeting to detail all its streaming plans, including a "first look" at Disney+ and some of the programming it's producing for it. How much will it cost? Disney hasn't yet announced pricing for its streaming service, but expect it to cost less than Netflix. Iger said in November 2017 that his company's service price will reflect the "fact that it will have substantially less volume" but plans to make up for it with high-quality programming from across its entertainment empire. More than a year later, however, Iger said the company still hadn't decided what it'll charge. We do know the service will include shows and movies such as: Star Wars: The Clone Wars new season (exclusive to this service). Marvel movies, starting with 2019's Captain Marvel. Star Wars films, starting with 2019's Episode 9. Pixar films, starting with 2019's Toy Story 4. A live-action, big-budget Star Wars TV series called The Mandalorian, being developed by Jon Favreau. A Star Wars Rogue One prequel TV series, starring Diego Luna. A live-action Marvel series focused on Avengers character Loki, starring Tom Hiddleston. Possible Marvel series that could star Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), according to Variety. Possible Marvel series that would team up Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) and Sam Wilson, aka Falcon (Anthony Mackie), according to Slashfilm. An animated series based on Pixar's Monsters Inc. A 10-episode series, Diary of a Female President, about a 12-year-old Cuban-American girl. A documentary about Walt Disney Imagineering. A Timmy Failure film directed by Spotlight's Tom McCarthy. A live-action Lady and the Tramp remake. A Sword in the Stone remake. Noelle, a movie starring Anna Kendrick. Togo, a sled dog movie starring Willem Dafoe. A Three Men and a Baby remake. The Paper Magician film. A Stargirl film. A High School Musical series. A possible Muppets series.

  13. Last Friday morning, I realised that something was wrong with my 08 Passat 1.8TSI's gearbox (only had 3rd Gear when driving forwards - No problem with Park, Neutral and Reverse). Even when I tried to change gear manually, or use a different mode, it still stayed in 3rd gear when driving (indicator is always 3). Hence it was pretty sluggish off the line, and to maintain highway speeds, the engine was rather strained. So, I drove straight to VW Service Centre. At first, the receptionist said that a Master Technician needed to take a look at my car, and asked me to have a seat at the lounge. And around 9am, she came by and told me that the Master Technician was still with another car, and that I should leave my key with them, and that they would call me back when they found out what was wrong with my car. I waited until 2pm Friday afternoon to call them, and that was when I realised that they had passed my "case" onto a Service Advisor. When I finally spoke to the Service Advisor, he informed me that there was a queue of cars waiting for a Master Technician to take a look. He then advised me that my car could only be seen on Saturday at the earliest. I then requested that he call me once my car was seen and to update me on the situation. Saturday morning came and went and after several missed calls, I finally managed to speak to my Service Advisor who apologetically informed me that my car had not been seen. He could not even indicate when my car could be seen, and that it is likelt to be Monday. I called again this morning (monday) and he said he would call me back... I called again in the afternoon... and he still hadn't stopped seeing his case load of incoming cars.... 72+ hours (3 days) of cars and no one can tell me if anything is wrong with my car (or if it was just a temporary issue). Are there so many VW cars at the workshop, or just so few technicians and mechanics?

    Laptop service standards

    I have a simple no sound from my lenovo laptop speakers issue. I got their "premium care" so it is on site warranty. Two appointments already still cannot fix. Keep getting my address wrong for appointments. Really one of the worst service I have seen... I use to use Dell and it was not so bad... Never again going to buy lenovo.... Have anyone tried other laptop brands servicing? HP?

    SIA pulls 3 A380s out of service

    From http://www.forbes.com/feeds/ap/2010/11/09/...agebusinessnews I've always been uncomfortable in A380s - they simply don't seem very stable, especially in turbulence. Now with the engine faults, I have no confidence at all.
  16. As of last Friday, Figo "Azalea" Chua successfully secured a deferment for his upcoming National Service. That means there’s nothing keeping him from staying on the team and playing on the global stage. https://www.hardwarezone.com.sg/tech-news-team-sgs-azalea-successfully-defers-military-service-overwatch-world-cup

    My experience working in civil service...

    i was in technical line as senior engineer, ok pay is not dat gd. but life is stable come 9am knock off 530pm. got once a yr idle trip to europe by company. then i think perhpas it is time for me to try management but current no management positions la so decide venture into civil service. the current company also not expanding in my area of work and i feel most of time not doing much or learning much, becoming very lazy. oh by the way tis company i joined since graduate for nearly 6 yrs. then there was advert for assistant director. looks damn big but not much salary increment. i got the position after 1 interview mmm...very suspicious but it was willing to wait 2mth notice. best thing is during interview they did not even say what they do. The contract offer say 1 yr contract as with all civil service and convert to perm 1 yr later if good. it is big if in fact it belong to small instituiton inside a big 'umbrella' statboard, so dificult to get info on it. i report to lady supervisor. 1st day work the director already yelling away. then from there it is down hill. the director will yell and criticise everybody in morning and run the institution like a stock exchange. he will say thing like 'give this guy the work la, he is paid $xxxx' i spoke up and the directordislike me from there on. my lady sup is so scared she will pressure me to details correcting my punctuations and spelling , grammar which i felt is totally humiliating. she dun know anything so she will major on the minor things. very sianz... needless to say after 1 yr they decide not renew my contract. so i jobless. they did not even forewarn me or even give me warnings as such , just say contratc not renew 1 month prior to end of contract and justify with lousy reasons. this even cause me to lost a job offer in between the 1 yr tenure even though lower paid as i tot i had a future in tis govt insititution, had i known i would have hop off. tis event happen few yrs ago, last i heard this stupid director was asked to step down before his retirement age due to too many complains against him liao. but still it made a mess of my life. as i think back, would i have make a different decision? i mean life is very very stale at the 1st company, but nice colleagues, ok boss but not learning much or doing much, and a management position came along....how i know it was like a 'trap' anyway manage to pick myself up and went back to technical line but was arduous journey ut dats another story.... thing is would u choose stability and monotony over change, risk taking, possible failure?

    Good proper car wash service!

    Hi guys, Just wanna recommend a pretty good car wash service in Sin Ming area. For $15, you get the following : 1. Proper car wash using Sonax shampoo 2. Vacuum 3. Tire Shine 4. Finish of with Sonax 3-in-1 mirror shine Compared to those petrol kiosk manual wash, i will definitely go for this as u're only paying $3 more. I do wash my ride frequently on my own (weekly), but usually dont wash my rims cuz i using no-rinse wash. So this is a good alternative to complement my weekly/monthly car maintainance. Disclaimer : I've completely NOT RELATED in anyway to the service provider. Those interested can pm me for the address.
  19. I am considering the new SEAT Ibiza, 1.5 EcoTSI DSG Stype Plus (A). It comes with 1-litre 3 cylinder engine, and generates 114 bhp. I have not yet test driven it, but I do like the interior design. The 8-inch infotainment comes with Apple Carplay & Android Auto. There is enough room in the back for 2 adults. The fit and finish while not luxurious is way better than my current 2013 Suzuki Swift Sport. The car review (on most car websites( are generally positive), and I do prefer small/medium hatchbacks. Good seating position and good visibility, coupled with good safety features. I have some concerns/doubts about SEAT's after-sales service. Some of the threads in other forums mentioned that the service engineers are not professional and not well trained. Do you have any experience with their after-sales service and reliability? I am also concern about SEAT's reliability - it comes with only 3-year warranty. Thank you in advance, Naresh.
  20. just wanted to share my bad experience with the Touch n go service office (at Jalan Lingkaran Dalam) this morning... Situation: I had a touch and go card that was purchased many many years ago.... with reduced amount of balance in card, so need to do a top up.... Process / procedure : Used to do top up at the woodlands checkpoint (malaysia customs) , but they have discontinued and told us to go to any shell station to do top up I had to drive to nearest JB shell station to do top up, but was told that the card expired... so need to go nearest Touch n Go office to renew or top up Experience when my wife reaches there (Touch n go ), the staff (claimed her name is farah) was very rude and made things difficult and insist the registered card owner must be present ... so she had to ask me to go in when I went in, the staff ask some silly questions on the card... such as how much we normally top up and where do we top up (like they are collecting data for a customer expenditure survey).... we gave the information and told her al these should be available in their system The staff was unhappy and tried to be more difficult by asking the next ridiculous question, .. asked if we had use this touch n go to pay car park... My answer is I pay almost all my carpark fees through cash ... my recollection is i use this card as per the original intent which is meant for toll fee and customs payment and I don't use this card or even associate this card for any car park payment.... she turned around and said.. okay then data mismatch... validation failed... you need to go register again Her logic seemed like... one could be using the card for a 1000 or million times for toll payment but if there is 1 car park payment (dunno where/when) and you are unable to tell me there is , then this is treated as data unable to be validated wow... I have not chanced upon a more sophisticated data processing intelligent brain or organisation that develop such a system of inflexibility or obstipation .. i was shocked.... what sort fo data is mismatched? i asked, i am the owner of the card.... with a long span of the years using the card... who can recalled every small transactions throughout the years and if 1 data is not matched, the staff conclude that it is data mismatched?.... .. and this is all happening just to be able to top up a cashcard My Aftershocked experience firstly, the staff is unprofessional......just applying her personal biasness and discriminate against individuals and decision is based on her whims and fancy... secondly, the so called validation data process is a joke..... who can remember every steps /amount the card has been top up... just a general answer aligned with what she wants to hear is considered validated... and another general answer not aligned to what she wants to hear is invalidated there is also no consistency in the validation process... if validation is needed for a top up cashcard (not sure it is needed, overkill), then please do it properly with consistency and had a good basis for the answers (establish how certain slight deviations are acceptable) for example she ask what was top up, we answer vaguely like RM 100-200.... but actually there were other higher or lower denominations as well... but she can accept those as validated.. when she asked if the card is use for paying carpark... I told her, so far, my recollection is mainly for road toll tee and the VEP customs payment as its original intend, many carparks that i go to doesn't have this touch n go payment option ... i pay cash for those... yes ..many car parks have since implemented to accept touch and go, doesn't means i have changed my way of paying carpark.. maybe a single occurrence or so With the system data in front of her, she should be able to look at the overall data .. perhaps 99.9% of times, I am paying as tolling fee and maybe 0.1% of the total is used to pay carpark such as a particular instance... if so, what is the basis of saying the data is invalid then there is another staff (presuming the office manager or the manager in charge), he warned me to stop recording the whole episode and also wanted to stop me from taking a photo of the Touch n go's Refund Notice printout where it has office contact number for me to write to complaint. He also asked the to delete the video Again ridiculous request, I asked where in that office was it stated we are not allow to take video and why is is not allow to take a photo of the contact information of that notice for me to send my complaint to ? anyway those are the proof of how bad service provider they are ... deletion would be a waste Looking back, the validation process redundant and irrelevant... might as well ask everyone to register new one and not waste time talking to bunch of crowns I don't know what else to say... the company should consider replacing those unprofessional staff or improve the process or leave it as it is (which will be probably what they will do)

    XBox One S service options?

    I have an XBox One S purchased in a bundle with a laptop over a year ago, and played infrequently by my kids. Recently, I was unable to turn it on. I have searched the net and this seems to be a common occurrence, with the only official help from Microsoft being 'unplug it for 10 seconds and then plug in again'. Not having any other choice, I tried to apply for a service request on the Microsoft website, and was presented with only one option - Pay SGD 190 for an exchange. So...for a common fault, the only option is to pay more than 50% of the street price for a replacement unit? Does anyone here have any experience with this fault, and know of someplace else where this can be serviced? Honestly, had I known of the appalling service terms, I would never have bought an XBox. I don't think I will ever buy one again.
  23. Hi, know of any shop or person doing very simple dink / dimple removal? Probably hit by inconsiderate passenger or perhaps a child carelessly opening the rear door of adjacent parked vehicle. Pls share contact details here or via PM. Thanks.
  24. https://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/courts-crime/4-drivers-convicted-of-providing-illegal-chauffeured-services-using Huat ah!!! SINGAPORE - Four drivers have been fined for providing illegal chauffeured services using unlicensed vehicles, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) said in a statement on Wednesday (Feb 13). The drivers have each been convicted of using a vehicle as an unlicensed public service vehicle, and driving a vehicle without valid insurance. They were each fined a total of $1,400 and disqualifed from driving all classes of vehicles for 12 months. LTA said that three of the four vehicles used were forfeited in 2018, while the decision over the fourth vehicle is still pending. All four vehicles were foreign-registered vehicles. In all four cases, investigations revealed that the drivers had ferried passengers from Singapore to Johor Bahru for an agreed fare without a Public Service Vehicle Licence (PSVL). In 2018, LTA caught 13 drivers using unlicensed foreign-registered vehicles to provide chauffeured services. Enforcement operations were conducted at visitor hot spots such as Changi Airport, HarbourFront Centre and East Coast Seafood Centre, LTA said. Deterrence operations were also conducted at these locations through the uniformed presence of LTA enforcement officers. LTA urged members of the public against engaging chauffeured services provided by persons using unlicensed vehicles, as these vehicles might not be sufficiently insured against third-party liabilities. Passengers may not be entitled to insurance recourse if they are involved in a traffic accident while travelling in such vehicles, the authority added. LTA group director of traffic and road operations Chandrasekar Palanisamy said: "Our enforcement officers have cracked down on these unlicensed public service vehicles to protect our commuters and our drivers." "We work closely with various agencies to obtain the information and investigate these incidents," he added. "LTA views these infringements seriously, and we are committed to taking severe action against offenders." Under the Road Traffic Act, all vehicles, including foreign-registered ones, are not allowed to provide taxi or chauffeured services in Singapore without a valid PSVL. Any person caught using a vehicle that is not issued with a valid PSVL to provide taxi or chauffeured services shall be prosecuted, LTA said. Those convicted face a fine of up to $3,000, or a jail term not exceeding six months, or both. The vehicle used may also be forfeited.
  25. with the ramp up in bus services and number of buses, hopefully this can be part of the redundancy for people in case MRT breaks down... Billion-dollar Bus Service Enhancement Programme completed with 1,000th bus added to fleet http://www.todayonline.com/singapore/billion-dollar-bus-service-enhancement-programme-completed-1000th-bus-added-fleet "SINGAPORE — The government’s billion-dollar Bus Service Enhancement Programme (BSEP) that was rolled out in 2012 to tackle bus congestion and long waiting times has wrapped up, as the 1,000th government-funded bus and 80th new bus service planned under the initiative hit the road. The five-year effort translated to a ramping up of bus capacity for about 70 per cent of bus services – or 218 out of 309 basic services – either through the deployment of higher capacity buses or the operation of more frequent bus trips, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) said on Saturday (Dec 6)."
