Terrorist Attack Warnings ..... Fake!

Just arrived on the 5pm flight from Manila and here is the extra security queue after getting off the plane

This was terminal 3 and only appears to be 3 or 4 gates at the far end. Took about 25-30 minutes to get through, probably quicker if you're at the front of the plane.

The ST article linked in the other thread said something about checking for fake passports, that's bs as no one was asking for passports just another bag scan and metal detector.

Re: EP Processing Time

this is my 3rd "fresh" ep application, I just moved to a different company. my goodness, they really dont want foreigner to work here.

Re: EP Processing Time

Hi Baltazarg,
Is this your EP renewal or a fresh EP application.
What I have read in different forums, EP renewal is taking 2 weeks or so and new EP applications are taking somewhere 2+ months.
My EP application already completed 2 months and it is still showing "Pending".


Re: EP Processing Time

this is my 4th time ep application, submitted on 24th November, still waiting for vetting process. I am very lucky that all last 3 application was selected for vicious checking, although there are no changes on my qualification. before this usually only takes less than two weeks, now I am getting nervous.

Re: Help/Advice needed regarding Training in SG

That's a pretty interesting story.

Re: Help/Advice needed regarding Training in SG

OK I'm drunk so I'll explain the background.

1940 - Grandad Zinke is conscripted into the Wehrmacht and dies fighting Russians. He didn't give a shit about the Nazis.

1945 Great Grandad Anton Schwetska steals a train and evacuates my mother, pregnant grandmother and all other family as far west from Sudetenland as he can to escape the Russians. The railway gauge changed in Bad Ableing to my mother and familie hang out there. Eventually my Grandmother meets a Serbian soldier (they fought the Nazis) in a park. Love ensues. He lines up to emigrate to AMERICA but gets in the wrong line and ends up in Australia. He saves for 7 years to bring my mum and Granny to the promised land of Australia. Anyhoo... about 20 years ago I decided to marry a Muslim lass. My mum freaks out.... why? "Actually meine liebling- you are a JEW, but we destroyed all the evidence in the war".... fast forward 20 years to 2015.... I take my mother back to Germany. We eventually find some relatives... who have NO FUCKING IDEA of their family history. It's like Germany doesn't talk about anything between 1939 and 1945. So yes. You need a whole bunch of Holocaust Memorials.
