Re: Europe Trip

Hi, I have a question, hope nobody thinks it's silly: did anyone wear your thermal innerwear starting from Changi Airport? Or did you go to the airport at your destination and then put them on? Just asking as I know indoors in cold countries will be at bearable temperatures, but once we venture out...

I'm looking at these two: https://www.changirecommends.com/deal/UK-Europe-Prepaid-SIM-card-3GB https://www.c...

Re: Secondary School CCA

Regarding the question about changing cca, if I am not mistaken, in Leaps 2.0, a student in the SAME cca for 4 years gets a higher Participation band than one who is in a cca for 4 years. Regardless of UGs or sports or clubs. Like if you are in Art Club for 4 years, you get a higher band than your c...

Re: IP vs O level

Could it be because, in case they want to exit, like pursue overseas education, having some kind of o level / generic syllabus is better?

Re: Fixed Deposit Promotion

Not really FDs, but I guess it’s ok as all are considered “low risk - low returns” investments.
