    Does anyone ever heard about eCinemax, an on-line store from Singapore that sells TVs and other electronics?

    Becareful with online purchases even with amazon.com I purchased three photography books from them in January 2011 (paid in full with my credit card and when it did not arrive in February, I wrote to them about it and they wrote stating that I would be receiving them not later than April. Can you imagine my shock when they did an unauthorised billing on the second delivery (they had my credit card details from the first order and they made full use of it) ? I have since then stopped completely from purchasing anything online even from amazon.com over 6 years ago

    Is an International Licsence the right one for riding a motor Bike(scooter) in Bali

    My take is don't worry too much about license or permit or what have you when you are in Indonesia. The only sure-fire thing that WILL get you out of trouble (if you are unfortunate) is to carry lots of 50,000 rupiah notes (50,000 rupiah is approx. SGD$10.00) This denomination has magic. Anything less and the authorities will smile at you sarcastically and will try to make it difficult for you like asking for your passport or whatever documents you have and if you naively hand them over, you are in deep trouble. Just simply hand over a 50,000 rupiah note and they will let you off as if nothing happened. over 6 years ago

    Where to go for cheap but original, or at least lower prices, for iPad accesssories, etc. in Singapore?

    Try Funan Centre or any "Challenger Shop" outlets. They have one very large Challenger Shop right at the very top of Funan Shopping Centre. Whatever you do, please avoid places like Sim Lim Tower, Sim Lim Square & Lucky Plaza. over 6 years ago

    Where can I find Bubble Tea in Christchurch?

    An advice to one and all: Please refrain from taking Bubble Tea (if from Taiwan) because it was reported in our national newspapers here in Singapore recently that some of the ingredients used for bubble tea are harmful and will cause cancer. Better be safe than sorry ! over 6 years ago

    Any good places for food and drink in Singapore, even the ons that are out of the ordinary?

    Hi Ian, Singapore is a food paradise because you can find all types of good food (both international and local) at reasonable budget price practically at most, if not all, shopping centres because most food courts are located at the basement of the shopping centres itself and the foods are mostly local dishes combined with some international cuisines (Japanese, Korean etc.) If you are in for good seafoods like chilli crabs, (S'pore's National Dish), black pepper crabs, butter crabs, large prawns etc, then you should go to the Long Beach restaurant at East Coast Park. Last but not least, Singapore is also famous for its chicken rice and though you can get it almost anywhere in Singapore, one of the best chicken rice served is at the Chatter Box Restaurant at the Mandarin Hotel at Orchard Road, Singapore's shopping belt which is a few kilometers long with shopping centres on both sides of the street. Enjoy yourself here in sunny Singapore. over 6 years ago

    Where to shop for cheap (but fashionable) shirts in Singapore?

    Visit People's Park Shopping Centre (Chinatown area) for your good and cheap stuffs. Also visit the OG Shopping Centre just beside (at the back of People's Park Shopping Centre). Their things are also good and cheap i.e. value for money. over 6 years ago

    Can I use a camera in public in Thailand?

    Definitely 100% you can use your camera freely in Thailand. Remember, Thailand is the Land of Smiles. However, if you want to take shots inside a temple (for example), then I think it is appropriate and polite to ask for permission first. over 6 years ago
