    Singapore PR




    My Singapore IC...


    Yup, I am now a Singapore PR. It took about 7 weeks for my application to be approved. From now onwards, I can use Singapore Passport lanes in checkpoints, instead of queuing up in All Passport lanes for more than 1 hour on peak hours.
    I got my chinese name printed on my IC! But I know I look fat and old in that photo. Paid SGD$200.00 for the whole application. The IC itself costs me SGD$50.00. Feeling'Heart pain' now.

    Getting PR == CPF deduction!!!

    Paid so much for the application, and now monthly income also got to include CPF deduction, and bus ticket are 30% more expensive compare to last time due to the fuel surcharge thing. Used to go all the way to Johor to take bus from there to KL, which the bus tickets are sold in RM. Since I have just changed my job, I can only buy expensive bus tickets which are sold in SGD!!! Cannot afford to go back on weekly basis anymore. Sigh... cannot go back KL that often is due to the work load in the new company too. Thought of having a great long weekend in Malaysia. But, I need to work from home during this weekend...
    sigh...

    Congrats! Singapore PR can use Singapore Passport lanes? I thought has to have Singapore passport to use those lanes. I don't think you look fat and old at all in your IC photo.
