Is it true that you can self check your diamond possession by using some of the techniques at home? I have read that you can use a magnifying glass to check whether a diamond is fake or real.
Just bring to any jewellery store and they can check easily.

Re: All About Math Olympiad Training & Questions

No need to start at P1. Plenty of assessment books you can just use to teach at home.

Re: All About Full-Time Maids

Yes! Myanmar! Sent her packing after 5 months. I was never lucky to having a reliable maid. Tried Myanmar, Indonesian, and Filipino made and I only have negative experiences. Because of this bad experience, I decided to work at home, accept freelance jobs and take care of my family alone. Same here!...

Re: The Real Reason Why We Send Our Children to Tuition

Companies can pay for services to boost the brands’ online presence. A few other forummers have also noticed the spike in posts praising the same brands. This is why I don’t trust such anonymous reviews, no matter how much they rave about the centre. I would like to share the reason why I feel that ...

Re: Aristocare

He can continue to cheat because his business model does not depend on repeat business. There are en...

Any parents can share how many students from RGPS enrolled to NYGH or RGS last year?
Call to check with the the Sec schools? They would have a clearer view of intakes.
About 40 went to RGS last year.

Re: COP 2019

Why ACSI IP dropped 2 points last year but now back to 256?

Is it reasonable to say that COP for NJC and HCI dropped while ACSI and RI rose because MORE high scorers chose ACSI and RI this year compared to last year?

Re: MOE Kindergarten

There were some who also attended enrichment classes at K1/2 or had parents who taught them... these usually struggled less or not at all. So is MOE Kindy really enough to prepare kids for P1 curriculum? It depends what “enough” means. Do parents hope that kids can breeze through P1? Is it ok to par...
