My friend just introduced me to a fruity beer last week and I was mind-blown. What are some interesting, even exotic, alcoholic spirits that you've heard of or seen before and have you tried them?

How much money/portion of your income do you give your parents monthly? My pay is $2.5k (SGUnited Traineeship), and my parents are divorced but both recently remarried, I live with my dad. Any advice?
I feel like it really depends. If you parents are still financially stable, they will be understanding enough as in the end, you will still need to build a family and spend on your own!

What's your favourite poverty meal that you'll still eat regardless of your financial status?

Hi anonymous, I can't say that I was ever poor, because I was fortunate enough that my family did pretty okay. Even when my dad's business folded, and my mom got retrenched in her prime... I was lucky that I managed to score bursaries and scholarships to fund my own education, and eventually put myself through university. So growing up, I never experienced poverty like a lot of less fortunate Singaporeans might have had. And I'm grateful for that. However, I did live in Thailand for a while as a research assistant , back when I was still in poly. And I did it on my own dime. FYI: when I entered on a scholarship, I wasn't taking a single cent from my parents, and worked during the school holidays for pocket money. Granted, the programme and my school paid for my accommodations in a hostel as well as for my air tickets. And the research institute did give me a living allowance. But I certainly wasn't living like a king there and I wanted to make sure that whatever money I had lasted for as long as possible. Even though things in Thailand were cheaper than in Singapore, the living allowance (about THB6,000 or ~S$264) wasn't that much either. For context, if you ate at the university canteen or on the street, you'll spend about THB100 to 150 per day — this was back in 2007 - 2008. And since accommodations are taken care of, technically can survive lah... I did miss home-cooked food though (my grandma's cooking to be specific). But I can't fly her out there. So with my limited funds, I would always make sure that I have a bottle of this: ! Source: Sinhua Hock Kee Trading (S) Pte Ltd Yep. That's a bottle of Triple A Pickled Lettuce . Or if you live in a typical Chinese household, like me, then you would probably know this as cai xin. A bottle costs about S$1.50 to S$1.65 and you can easily find it in your local supermarket (or I'm guessing... any Asian supermarket worldwide). And that's something which my grandma would pair with rice porridge for a very simple lunch. ! Source: cookpad.com So that's what I did too for a cheap meal or when I missed home (and my grandma). Plain rice porridge (or jok) was super easy to find in Thailand, and was really cheap (about THB30 or S$1.32). If I'd like a little protein in my jok, I would get some pork meatballs or an egg cracked in it. And it'd only cost THB40 or S$1.77. So... what's my favourite poverty meal that I'll eat regardless of my financial status? Rice porridge with a side of cai xin ! Because it reminds me of my times as a research assistant in a sleepy university town north of Bangkok... and of my grandma.

Anyone tried Burpple beyond? Is it better than Entertainer for 2019?

I think Burpple beyond does not have as many options as entertainer, and for good restaurants (like the atas kind) the 1 for 1 is usually for something that is not the restaurant's speciality or not as expensive. So Entertainer could be more worth but the cons is that they lock you in for one year, while burpple you can just subscribe for the month you are bringing someone out and a lower cost!

What type of degree I should go for in University?

Hi Alcander! It sounds to me like you're aiming for a degree that would give you the best shot at being relevant to employers: If that's the case, the domains you've mentioned would be the forerunners. Still, I'd agree with several posters here and say that what's important to factor into your decision is this question: "Will I be okay doing this for 3/4 years?" Because if you're not going to like what you study, it'll not only be an extremely difficult time - it'll also impact your ability to be interested, retain, and apply what you learn. As Xi Hui has mentioned, skills can be learnt and upgraded outside of a degree program, via internships, short courses and independent projects. University degrees may get you in the door, but the things you do outside of it, are what will give you the unique boost needed to land you the job. Here's something you could do to help you figure out your priorities: List out on a paper your strengths ("What am I good at"), interests ("What am I happy to do proactively") and practical concerns ("What should these 4 years of uni help me to achieve / do better?"). Then match the list of potential degrees programs against these 3 criteria. By then, you'd have a better ranking of programs, and can further filter from there :) All the best, and don't hesitate to seek further help on this forum!

Where should I buy my bed mattress from? Are you paying more for the brand of the mattress or for the actual comfort of it?
Buying a mattress is subjective and depends on what you are looking for, they have price ranges from $300 to $4000 for super single size. For me personally, brand does not matter and especially if you are on a budget. What is more important will be actually testing the mattress itself if it is possible so you can get a feel of how the mattress feels when you lie on it. It should be a long-term purchase which will be used daily, so make sure you get one that suits your comfort needs. Usually shops that specially sell mattress would be more expensive, especially if its from the big brands Cheaper alternatives can be found from mattresses that are manufactured locally and without branding.

Which Mastercard credit card is good to have, just as a spare card?
Hi anon, Try the CIMB mastercards (world/platinum). They are zero fee cards and you can just stick it in your wallet and pull it out when needed. Take note however, that if you don't use it frequently, you must remember to pay the bill when it is due. Some people might forget to pay the bill since it's not their main card. I keep both CIMB's Visa and Mastercards in my wallet, just in case.
