Am toying with the idea of trying a couple of shirts off an internet tailor. Jantzen seems tempting but all these stories about orders disappearing down a black hole make me slightly wary. Anyone tailor from both places before and care to offer a comparison?

I don't think so. As long as you can show that you shipped the item from your country of origin, I don't think they're going to be anal.

But if you can prove that you are transferring your place of residence to Singapore, you can apply for an exemption. Check out details at http://www.customs.gov.sg/leftNav/tr...+Singapore.htm

I guess if you work in the city but live in the suburbs, the local version of the subway (we call it Mass Rapid Transit) and buses here are pretty efficient, you just have to squeeze like a sardine during rush hour. But the reason why more people don't own cars isn't because of...
