Hihi! I went for my 2nd blood test on 10june after receiving the call from clinic on 6june.
Did you do a third blood test?


Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Nope i didn't. I was told i had low hemoglobin so i took iron supplement for 3 days before going for the 2nd blood test and apparently i passed?

Just to ask how low was your hemoglobin level? It was quite fast for 3 days.. What is their ideal level? Thanks..

How is this not a misleading topic title?

Incidentally, you claim your portal will be a time-saver, but you've already succeeded in wasting our time with your bait and switch post.

As long as it takes. Are you a woman or man? If you're a man there is the problem of NS.

You cannot apply for those passes. An employer applies for those passes on your behalf. I was going to write a long email on how post you are but won't in the spirit of ramadan.....

1. Find an employer who wants to give you a job. Note that even in this case it's extremely hard for employers to get passes for Indonesians because LKY hated them. You basically need to be an extra special snowflake like a phd or medico or super talented engineer.
2. After you get a job work for your way up to where you are an attractive candidate for CITIZENSHIP and then apply for PR.... This means earning a good income and appearing to be a positive contributor to Singapore. This means a consistent record of increases in salary and responsibility in a profession that Singapore current wants as well as not being gay and possibly being a provided of male children (cannon fodder for NS).

Yes, I did that. I've found some employers that willing to apply pass for me. However, the MoM did not approve my working pass with the reason "The candidate does not eligible for a work pass" and I wonder why, it's just that I have completed my study in Singapore with a Bachelor's Degree.

Back to the topic, this PR application is applied under my parents and not on my own. I just wonder that how long do I need to wait for me to know the results?

Re: Paying overseas credit card using DBS

BBCWatcher:
It'll vary of course. DBS displays both the service fee and exchange rate before you send money to a recipient's Visa credit card (or Visa debit card-linked bank account). The service fee per transaction ranges from S$5 to S$10 depending on the recipient's currency. The exchange rate presumably won't be terrific, although it might not be awful either.

For paying a local, Singapore-issued credit card there is no fee.

Re: Tenancy agreements/leases and your rights as a tenant

JR8:
The starting point is that you are bound by the terms of the contract that you agreed.
If there is no clause that allows you to amend the duration of your TA, such as a break clause, then you are bound to the term you signed up for.

There are possible exceptions to the above. For example if your TA was not stamped for Stamp Duty. In that case the unstamped TA cannot be introduced as evidence in legal action. Put another way, loosely speaking:- The landlord can't bring/prosecute a case based upon something which in the eyes of the law doesn't exist.

Example2: No TA, or no valid TA exists.
