    Women are to be pampered (sorry feminists) but i also appreciate women who can stand up for themselves and make it count when it matters most. Hence i believe strongly in making sure my wife has more educational and learning opportunities than myself so if i pass on, she can survive well. For me, having my wife being retired since 27 (she will argue back 28) makes me feel glad for her.

    Exactly, no one checks on their certs as well as their driving licenses. No accountability for the people using fake stuff except slap on the wrist and to send them back home for free. For some countries, they can change their names, etc and come back in a few months time.

    I respect those who are real talents and know they can contribute but unfortunately there seems to be way more fake talents then real ones these days.

    Wow retired since 27! Aiyoh, your wife is the envy of all women leh.. From what I see, you're the exception rather than the norm among SG men, most expect their wives to work and contribute lah!

    Agree with that, respecting the culture and integrating well is better than doing the opposite.

Like some posters have rightully said, pls respect the laws of the land. If not, there is always 'fair' Singapore to return to if things are unbearable in Jb.

    ps: Moderators should clamp on such posts to prevent this forum from being tainted.
    Can you hightlight the post so that we can have a better look.

    My 2 cents really.
    Agree, it may look like protecting but a local friend also remarked it may keep folks off Penang but then again, quite a few properties are already priced 2m and above.

    Haha, I like that.
    But seriously, having a degree is way over-rated.

    I rather like to think that we are getting literate in Singapore but not getting an education.

    I must admit that the pace of appreciation over the last 2 years for Nusajaya is astonishing.
    Perhaps even greater than Singapore.

    But of course the quantum is a different matter altogether. Unless we buy in clutches!

    3) Legal fees will be absorbed
    4) Stamp duty (3.5%) + foreigners levy to be paid by us

    MRCB falls to lowest since October

    KUALA LUMPUR: Shares of Malaysian Resources Corporation Bhd (MRCB) fell to their lowest since October last year on Thursday in the absence of fresh positive news.

    At 12.30pm, it was down two sen to RM1.72. There were 6.13 million shares transacted at prices ranging from RM1.70 to RM1.76.

    The FBM KLCI was down 2.8 points to 1,596.06. Turnover was 1.02 billion shares valued at RM661.94mil. There were 221 gainers, 358 losers and 311 stocks unchanged.

    Analysts had said the decline in MRCB share price was due to the lack of news including its involvement in the development of the Rubber Research Institute land in Sungai Buloh.

    Recently, MRCB said it was open to selling its Eastern Dispersal Link (EDL) expressway back to the Government following the latter's decision to review the company's toll concession mooted in 2008.

    MRCB chairman Tan Sri Azlan Zainol was quoted saying the cost of the EDL was estimated at around RM1.4bil, and he hoped a decision to be made in May.

    Sounds like a nice place, are you thinking of getting one?

    Sometimes, they need to do things for the people or at least to be seen doing so.

    Bro, I read it differently. MRCB may be sold down given the reduced revenue opportunity because the Government decided not raise the toll charges as high as we thought it may be.
