    WASHING MACHINE-which brand is good?

    Hello people. Went to Courts to check out Electrolux 887, selling at $899 with $100 NTUC voucher free. Another salesman intercepted and recommended a Whirlpool, but I forgot to ask about the model -it's 7kg 800rpm. Thing I like about Whirlpool is the drum - fully stainless steel, cannot...

    Yes, we saw elephants but the ranger only let us trail two of them for a while. The safari was ok.....not quite up to my expectation. The country's very hot and dry at this time of the year. I would not go again. Not much to see and do though the country's very vast. Furthermore, it's not...

    Which Travel Agent is Better for Korea Trip ?

    We went with Hong Thai to South Korea in Mar 04. Then, it was the cheapest and best valued package around. 8days at less than 1K. The food, esp. BBQ pork was good. We enjoyed ourselves most in Jeju Island, we strongly encourage you include it in your itinerary.

    Cameron Highlands

    Hi Zoeanne. We've decided to stay at Equatorial. Manage to get a package that makes direct transfer to the hotel. While it's furthest away from the town, it's very near the plantations and farms. Also, as it's in the highest part of the highlands, it will be cooler and more scenic. Thanks...
