Much like our beloved Nigel, the sewing circle is no longer in action. The Singapore Forum will be kept up so the wealth of information collected over the years can still be found and used, but there won't be anything new.

Thanks to everyone that made The Singapore Forum, in all it's guises, a fun, informative and comfortable place to hang out while dodging work.

I thought I might go with the numerical sequence.

I just slopped through the pouring rain to get my EP renewal over to the Ministry of Manpower at 19 Havelock Road. At the door to the building I had the following conversation with the security guard.

Guard: Sorry, no one is allowed entry.

Me: I'm here to drop off my renewal forms, I'm to deliver them here.

Guard: But I can't permit you to enter.

Me: So, how do I drop them off?

Guard: You must send them here. (hands me a slip of paper that looks like it came out of a fortune cookie. It says: 19 Havelock Road)

Me: This says 19 Havelock Road.

Guard: Yes.

Me: This is 19 Havelock Road.

Guard: Yes.

And so it goes... [smilie=23_3.gif]

Not a good time to ask about the PR application, then [smilie=rollingpin.gif]

Yeah, still pending. I attached a letter to my EP renewal to tell them that I have a PR application that's been pending since the ice age in the hopes someone might have the initiative to call up ICA and light a fire. I won't hold my breath, though.
