Anyone going to be in singapore between the 9th and 15th of september or going to the startup elevate/ TechXLR8 conference? if so lets have a nomad meetup!
hidden for non-members3mo
i'll get to singapore on the 15th. if the meetup is in the evening of the 15th i could join
hidden for non-members3mo
that's sad actually, as even 1-2 years ago there were bikeshares Ofo and Mobike, and it was pretty convenient transport option, if you manager to ride outside of heat peak :)
hidden for non-members3mo
well havent booked my outwards yet so that could work for me too actually if anyone else is up for it?
hidden for non-members3mo
Count me in. I'll be around!
hidden for non-members2mo
whats a good co-working space in singapore?
hidden for non-members2mo
one rated as the best on nomadlist seems to have shutdown, or domain isn't working atleast
hidden for non-members2mo
I've been to The Working Capitol
You can do 1 week trial for 50$
Nice place to work in a nice area. Worth a try
hidden for non-members2mo
Thanks :) will check it out
hidden for non-members2mo
Price definitely sounds a lot better than the other place i found
hidden for non-members2mo
So, turns out i'm definitely leaving the 14th. So cant do a get together on the 15th after all. But if anyone is around for a coffee before then let me know! got a week membership at The working capitol as per mlepinay's recommendation, and otherwise will be around the marina bay area for the expo and where i'm staying
hidden for non-members2mo
Revolut seems to have opened up the beta for Singapore now
hidden for non-members2mo
Just checked in at AirAsia in Singapore airport, the process here is another level. It's so smooth and efficient. Me and my wife are now actually considering moving here.
hidden for non-members2mo
Yes, it's clean, efficient and civil. Everything just works. Once you get past some of the horrible Singlish (lah!) it's a good spot...
hidden for non-members2mo
Yeah I really like it. And my wife loves the shopping here. Apparently the mid range and cheaper stuff is much better than what you find in Europe. So we'd both be happy
hidden for non-members2mo
Just wonder if it would make it harder to get contracts from european countries, as opposed to being based in London. If they'd assume you're not as good
hidden for non-members2mo
Their airport is certainly efficient, except I got taken to secondary last month in Singapore basically because the immigration lady didn't like my attitude ๐Ÿคจ
hidden for non-members2mo
Geez... how the hell does anyone (apart from those trying to work in the sex industry, for example) get taken to secondary in Singapore!? Sorry to hear that.... you got through ok in the end??
hidden for non-members2mo
Oh damn. Would like to know how you end up in secondary aswell so I know not to! Might have just been someone having a bad day though or being a bit overzealous
hidden for non-members2mo
yea they grilled me in a back room for a bit trying to sweat out a confession that I was trying to work there or buy property or something. Had to show them proof that I work for an org in the US with no relation to anywhere in Asia. I knew they didn't have anything and I had been through stuff like this before with US immigration. Took maybe 45min? More of an inconvenience. From what I could tell, she just didn't like my answer that I was there for tourism and that meant "mostly just shopping". I gave short, concise answers as I am aware that usually the more you talk, the more they can pick apart. I guess that came off as disrespectful or something. I could tell she was going to give me trouble almost right away
hidden for non-members2mo
my wife afterwards gave me the tip of "tell them you're here for durian and they brighten right up!"
hidden for non-members2mo
so I'll do that next time haha
hidden for non-members2mo
it was more stressful for her than me. She has had really bad experiences with immigration
hidden for non-members2mo
They
hidden for non-members2mo
Deport you back to your country of origin..
hidden for non-members2mo
But yeah, that sucks man..
hidden for non-members2mo
I have an APEC BTC Card, so I always use the Diplomatic/APEC queue (and pretty much everywhere else in Asia) and have never had a single follow up question.... but again, it does come down to the person you get to process you...
hidden for non-members2mo
Yeah, I noticed that in Asia they don't target me anywhere nearly as much as they do in Europe and America. Like in the USA I get stopped everytime because I'm north African travelling on a British passport, it's like the most profiled profile there is. But in Singapore and Indonesia they seem to profile Americans and Australians quite a lot
hidden for non-members2mo
I had no issues coming into Singapore from Japan, they didn't ask me single question.
hidden for non-members2mo
I actually get questioned all the time in the US, even though I'm a US passport holder.
hidden for non-members2mo
My hotel gym in Singapore is really terrible, anyone have any good recommendations for gyms or work out classes? I'm only gonna be here two weeks
hidden for non-members2mo
If you're into Barry's bootcamp noticed one there.
hidden for non-members2mo
Honestly the more I think about it the more Im convinced of moving to Singapore
hidden for non-members2mo
Do it!
hidden for non-members2mo
F45 has a week trial
hidden for non-members2mo
yzduvur have you done it? Was it easy to set up?
hidden for non-members2mo
Just need to get one big contract for an app and will do it. Will rent out my place in London, use that to rent somewhere in Singapore and happy times are sure to follow!
hidden for non-members2mo
I looked at it a few years ago... but because I move around a lot, I never made time to stay in SG for at least a few months to get everything done.... interestingly enough, my taxi driver was telling me that the easiest way was a representative office of an overseas company.... not sure if there's any truth to that, but interesting nonetheless..
hidden for non-members2mo
I should make more time to do it..
hidden for non-members2mo
Hmm, think I'll get the process started aswell
hidden for non-members2mo
Seems an easy way is if you get into an incubator
hidden for non-members2mo
Indeed.
hidden for non-members2mo
Ok, seems I will try to get into an incubator! :D
hidden for non-members2mo
Then setup a company there.
hidden for non-members2mo
Good morning :) I'm here to recommend The Pod cc Beach Rd as the most nomad-friendly budget hotel/hostel in Singapore, now that I've tried a dozen or so of them.
hidden for non-members2mo
Sounds good! Do you have a promo code for it?
hidden for non-members2mo
xcehmzunr Nope, I'm just a guest here on my second visit loving it.
hidden for non-members2mo
They've got a great workspace
hidden for non-members2mo
Was just wondering because they have a field for that when you pick the date of stay and such
hidden for non-members2mo
how large are the rooms usually? I couldn't find anything about that. and is it clean? (esp. showers)
hidden for non-members2mo
Yeah, it's really clean. I haven't tried a private room, but the dorms are (I think) 8 pax with good beds / privacy / lockers
hidden for non-members2mo
More of a professional crowd than a backpacker hostel
hidden for non-members2mo
Thanks very much for the recommendation! Sounds like I might give it a try.
hidden for non-members2mo
anytime :)
hidden for non-members2mo
Does anyone have experience with forming a limited company here as a foreigner?
hidden for non-members2mo
think NL is setup in singapore, but maybe vlvsljfhgiiypte would be better able to answer that.
hidden for non-members2mo
Interesting, didn't know that! Thanks
hidden for non-members2mo
hidden for non-members2mo
yeah, that and www.pikohana.com/ seems to be what everyone recommends
hidden for non-members2mo
But i've heard good things about b oth
hidden for non-members2mo
Together, or in comparison?
hidden for non-members2mo
I've seen sleek.sg mentioned on NL forums but haven't heard of anyone that used it
hidden for non-members2mo
Nice to have more than one option ๐Ÿ˜„
hidden for non-members2mo
iediuarzbxqdej oh i think they both do the same thing, but both were recommended to me
hidden for non-members2mo
Gotcha
hidden for non-members2mo
I'm using sleek and am happy with them
hidden for non-members2mo
feel free to PM me if you have any specific questions
hidden for non-members2mo
hidden for non-members2mo
Thanks so much ocikdvlobuvv
hidden for non-members2mo
Back in Singapore. If anyone's around and up for a coffee let me know!
hidden for non-members2mo
Sounds good :) let me know when works for you, I'm usually around other then a few meetups I'm going to try to goto
hidden for non-members2mo
So sorry, only just saw this! will message you now :)
hidden for non-members2mo
wwnlylmwngqvqzefz isn't Johor actually across the water in Malaysia? I imagine the border crossing would get old pretty quickly if you wanted to spend a lot of time in Singapore proper
hidden for non-members2mo
in singapore?
hidden for non-members2mo
are you wanting to know what areas to stay in or?
hidden for non-members2mo
Singapore is not very affordable haha. If you are wondering outside of Airbnb, maybe check #_housing.
hidden for non-members2mo
hidden for non-members2mo
amvgktbvdqhejlc what determines the "Recommended Area by Hoddmaps?"
hidden for non-members2mo
also, the redesign is real sleek โœจ
hidden for non-members2mo
๐Ÿ‘
hidden for non-members2mo
I definitely like that way of separating neighborhoods instead of the grid you had before
hidden for non-members2mo
pqmwvuskanpyzha yea that new recommended area makes more sense and is where we stay. was way south before
hidden for non-members2mo
Also be careful clunklnquiemotqoq Airbnb is completely forbidden in Singapore and they are quite strict about it
hidden for non-members2mo
no such thing in Singapore I'm afraid. For good value the hostels are a good bet
hidden for non-members2mo
I actually don't know sorry, I always sleep at friends
hidden for non-members2mo
And even staying at a friend they check you out like crazy to make sure it's not hidden airbnb
hidden for non-members2mo
I haven't had the same experience
hidden for non-members2mo
Me neither
hidden for non-members2mo
Some kind soul in this channel recommended "The Pod Capsule Hotel" at Beach Road, so I booked it for most of December. (sorry can't post link)
hidden for non-members2mo
hoazwjkpd That was me, and I still recommend it! Let me know what you think in December :)
hidden for non-members2mo
I might have to stop by Singapore at some point while you're there
hidden for non-members2mo
But only for a day or two
hidden for non-members2mo
trtzbejcrqlcrk Just ping me when you know more, and maybe we can go for coffee or drinks?
hidden for non-members2mo
qrrkvrwek Will do if the trip happens!
hidden for non-members1mo
