Re: Hwa Chong Institution [*IP]

Hi. Son unlikely to make it to table tennis CCA but am still keen to develop table tennis skills. Am looking for like-minded kids to train together once a week, to provide matchplay skills and encourage each other. Perhaps even form teams to compete in local tournaments. If your kid is still motivat...

Re: Nanyang Girls' High School [*IP]

As for size of iPad, DD feels the std iPad is best compromise. iPad Mini is too small and iPad Pro too big to comfortably bring around. Of course, probably just a personal experience too. She's used the iPad since Sec 1 (now in Sec 3)

Re: Nanyang Girls' High School [*IP]

Hi. I would like to get in touch with any Sec 4 parent (2016), (even better if DD is doing AEP, though not necessary). Can PM me ? My DD is in Sec3 currently, and I am in need of help. Thanks

Re: DSA 2016

Was reminded of Covey's Circle of Influence and Circle of Concern. The results of DSA is not within our Influence at this juncture (but most definitely a Concern), so no use fretting over it. What is within our influence is how to break the news, whatever the outcome, and preparing DC for PSLE. Good...

Re: All About Clothes Dryers

I just got a washer and dryer set, so am a newbie. Have a question relating to the use of the dryer. Is it better (more economical) to dry the clothes immediately from the washer, or to dry the clothes after air drying for some time ? My drying area is windy and clothes can be about 80% dry overnigh...

Re: All About Table Tennis

What's the price range of a bat suitable for an intermediate player? I used to be in the school team during secondary school days in the 80s. The coach recommended the black rubber on one side and red long pimple rubber on the other for all of us. Per bat costs about sgd40 back then all in. I think...

Re: All About Table Tennis

What's the price range of a bat suitable for an intermediate player? Depends on the choice of blade (the wood part) and the rubbers (red and black soft part). Likely to be >$150 for the average specs. The choices are really bewildering, and I'm still exploring. I refer to this website (http://www.t...

Re: All About Table Tennis

Sorry to change topic - I have two extra rubbers that I can sell away at cost to interested parents (DHS Hurricane 3 and Donic JO Gold Max). These are commonly used rubbers for fore and backhand. They are unopened in original packaging and should be cheaper than that available in stores. Just PM me ...
