She sits opposite strangers. What happens when her ex-lover shows up?

No comments:

Marina Abramovic is a performance artist. In her performance "The Artist is Present", she sits directly opposite strangers who take turns to sit down in the empty chair opposite her. Many turn up. But she probably was not expecting this one person to turn up.

His name is Ulay and he was once her lover. She last saw him decades ago. Today, they meet for the first time in years. See what happens.

Who Owns Tan Boon Liat Building

No comments:
Who owns Tan Boon Liat building located near Tiong Bahru in Singapore? It is quite an old building but houses a mish mash of shops and probably offices too. Located just beside Holiday Inn hotel, I would suppose that this plot of land probably has great developmental value.

Anyone knows who owns this building? Leave a comment and let me know.

Highest Bank Account Deposit/Interest Rates in Singapore ( Updated 19 March 2015)

No comments:
Just compiling a list of the highest bank account deposit rates in Singapore currently. Might have missed out some so do feel free to leave a comment if you know of any other accounts that offer high interest rates. Do also note that these are not like-for-like comparisons so one is advised to assess which is best for your own purposes.

1. POSB - 1.88% per annum

POSB is now offering a promotional interest rate of 1.88% for 12 months. You simply need to register before the end of February 2015, top up your chosen savings account between $1000 to $1,000,000, and maintain that amount within your savings account for the next 12 months to get the 1.88% interest rates.

2. Maybank - Singapore Dollar Time Deposits (Up to 1.55%)

Maybank has a time deposit ranging from 12 months, 18 months and 24 months. For amounts greater than $25,000 but less than $50,000, you can earn 1.10% (12 mths), 1.18% (18 mths) and 1.28% (24 mths) respectively.

For amounts above $50,000, you get 1.35% (12 mths), 1.45% (18 mths) and 1.55% (24 mths) respectively.

3. OCBC 360  - 3.05%

This is not a fixed deposit account. It offers a base interest of 0.05% and gives a bonus 1% interest when you credit your salary, pay 3 bills and spend $400 on your credit card. Works for some people who are able to fulfill all these criteria.

4. OCBC Bonus + Savings Account

As stated on OCBC's website, "All funds in the Bonus+ Savings Account enjoy a monthly base interest of 0.05% p.a. If no withdrawals are made, the interest rate will be 0.60% p.a. for 2 months and 1.15% p.a. for the third month. If no withdrawals are made in the quarter and there is minimum $10,000 fresh funds deposit, the interest rate will be 2.35% p.a. for the third month. The maximum effective interest rate for the account will be 1.18% p.a." The diagram above also shows how the bonus interest rates work. As long as you do not withdraw any amount for the quarter and deposit fresh $10,000 in funds, you will be entitled to the bonus interest rates. Terms and conditions apply.
