Lifehacks Singapore
« on: July 20, 2015, 01:55:34 pm »
those not familiar with lifehacks, they are basically simple things you can do to make your life better or to save money etc... let me start with my list for Singapore (especially for women):

1. If married and both working, alternate credit card application between husband and wife. Don't both get the same card at once. Apply for sub if got deals too.

2. Things that don't matter buy second-hand, then sell for same price or more after you are done with it. Cash converters, craigslists, carousell are good places to look

3. Insure yourself for hospitalization... then downgrade ward to get cashback!

4. Chat up staff at the bar, most of them have discretionary power to activate happy hour outside of happy hour.

do the research, compare prices and usually buy online to get the best deals...  :)
The name ShuperStar is derived from the words Shoe (“Shu”) and Superstar, because we want everyone who wears our shoes to be the star attraction – a ShuperStar!

1.)Ask a slim friend help you buy chai png. sure generous portion.
2.)When speaking to CSO and they deny your request. insist twice more for the same request but phrasing differently.
3.)What youngsters always do, approach online shops for "collaboration", attempt to get freebies
4.)dl e textbooks online instead of buying them

camping for sophisticated life hacks.  :-*

I can't emphasise more on no. 2...
worked today agn.
get them sick of hearing by repeating same thgs in different ways until they give in

I think should be other way round leh.. if you get a big sized guy to buy for you, they will auto give bigger portion.

A couple of lifehacks to add:
1) free haircuts for senior citizens
2) join those boliao RC activities: they always got some freebies to give out
