Re: Fixed Deposit Promotion

Came across Manulife Abundance, guaranteed 1.55pa for 4 years. Google to find out more. PS: am not working in financial or insurance industries. Interesting.

Re: The Alternative Story (TAS) - Discussion

I remember those! Still get to see it when travelling overseas. There's also a push cart at esplanade that sells them.
