We are dedicated to working in a collaborative fashion with individuals and organizations to help Telugu people.

DINING

Singapore is one of the most affordable places in the world when it comes to dining. Local fare found at hawker centres, food courts and kopitiams (local coffee shops) are very reasonable priced. 

Hawker Centres and Coffee Shops 

·         Coffee shops are commonly found on the ground floor of shop houses or apartment blocks.

·         Each contains between six to ten food stalls and one drink stall.

·         Food price typically range from SGD 2.00 to 4.00 for a plate of food and SGD 1.00 to 1.50 for a drink.

·         Hawker centres are big food centres which have many different food stalls.

·    Food prices are similar to coffee shops. Hawker centres are dotted all over the island and are usually found in neighbourhood town centres. Most Singaporeans have their personal favourite hawker centres, food courts and stalls - some popular picks are Bugis Street, Lau Pa Sat, Chinatown Food Street and Maxwell Food Centre.

Food Courts

If the Singapore heat deters you from an outdoor dining experience, a food court is the next best alternative. These are air-conditioned hawker centres, usually within a shopping mall, typically offering local favourite as well as international food in a comfortable, modern indoor setting. As with hawker centres, it is best to find a seat before you order your food. Food prices typically range from SGD 3.00 to 5.00 for a plate of food and SGD 1.00 to 2.00 for a drink. Popular food courts in the city include Bugis Junction, Clarke Quay, Takashimaya Food Village, China Square Food Centre, Food Republic, Banquet (Halal) and Kopitiam.

Dental care, optometry, and paramedical services, as well as speech, occupational, and physical therapy and widely available. Most housing estates re serviced by government polyclinics as well as private clinics. The Ministry of Health (http://app.moh.gov.sg/) is a good place to start for all health care enquires.

Healthcare services may be paid for through a range of medical insurance policies. Many insurance companies provide coverage and policy plans for foreigners. All healthcare establishments such as hospitals, nursing homes, clinical laboratories, medical and dental clinics are licensed and regulated by the Ministry of Health. Singapore has 23 hospitals, of which two are government hospitals; eight are government-restructured hospitals and 13 private hospitals.

CAREER AND JOBS IN SINGAPORE

 Singapore is an open economy with strong presence in the service and manufacturing sector. Manufacturing is the economy's main engine of growth, with electronics accounting for nearly half of the sector. The chemical Industry is the second largest manufacturing sector, and Singapore is also the third largest petroleum-refining centre in the world. Singapore's workers are among the world's best for productivity, work attitude and technical skills. They speak English proficiently, and are dedicated, hardworking, and keen to upgrade their skills and knowledge. The government is focusing its efforts on five industrial clusters: electronics, chemicals, engineering, IT, and biomedical sciences. Singapore reliefs on foreign workers and agents at both ends of the skills ladder. Singapore aims to continue to lure global talent and top management to its shores, most significantly in IT jobs and int he technology industry, and has introduced a new class of tax payers, called "not ordinarily resident," who will earn tax exemptions on income earned outside of the country. Recent evidence has shown weaker economic performance with unemployment rates reaching the highest levels in many years. On the contrary, Singapore's unemployment rate is still lower than that of other developed countries. Foreign talents remain an important resource to Singapore as many companies face problems employing suitable employees to facilitate regionally and locally in the expansion of businesses or replacement requirements. Some suitable career opportunities in the financial sector includes treasury and risk management, funds management, general debt issuance, investment analysis, corporate financial, venture capital, cross - border electronic banking, insurance, investment banking and tax planning. Other service industries include transport, logistics, media and advertising, F&B, wholesale and retail, healthcare, education, social/community services. There are many different sources in which one can embark on a job search in Singapore. The most commonly source is the newspapers, where we have the Classifieds section which caters a job section.

The other commonly used source nowadays would be the websites; we have compiled a list of online job portals which may be useful for job seekers.

FUNERAL SERVICES

Introduction

This section is meant to help members of the bereaved family understand the procedures needed to register the death, arrange for a funeral, and carry out burial or cremation for the deceased When a death occurs, the family will have to obtain a Certificate of Cause of Death (CCOD). With the CCOD, the family may register the death. This will have to be done within 24 hours of the death. Upon registration of the death, the CCOD will be retained by the death registration center and a Death Certificate will be given to the family. You will need this Death Certificate to place an obituary in the papers, engage a funeral director, and when you make arrangements for cremation or burial. 

What to do when a Death occurs ?

Senario A : If the death occurs in a hospital

Step 1

Obtain Certificate of Cause of Death (CCOD) when a death occurs, a doctors at the hospital can certify the cause of death if the cause of death is known AND the cause is natural. He will then fills up the CCOD and hand it to the ward nurse. The family can obtain the CCOD from the ward nurse by producing the identify card of the deceased. If the doctor is unable to determine the cause of death, o r a death has been the result of or has been contributed by an unnatural event (e.g. surgical complication, a fall prior to admission), the doctor is under the requirement of the law (Criminal Proceedings Code) to refer the case to the Police/Coroner. In such cases, the body will be sent to the Centre for Forensic Medicine (CFM) Mortuary (located at Block 9 Singapore General Hospital) in a Police Hearse. The hospital will arrange for this to be done. The family will be told by the Police when to go down to the CFM Mortuary (usually the next day)

What to bring to CFM :

• All medical documents relating to the deceased

• All medicine consumed by the deceased

• Identification papers of the deceased and informant

e.g. NRIC / Passport/Certificate of Registration of Birth/FIN card

At the CFM Mortuary

• The Police Investigator will arrange for the family to view and identify the deceased's body in the presence Of the Coronor.

• The Coroner will review the care and determine if an autopsy is required.
