    Yes, you need to pay before u are admitted if

    1 you are not local, meaning you are not holding a Singaporean passport.

    2 you are admitted to a private hospital, instead of a public hospital.

    3 you hire a private ambluance to take you to hospital (meaning you need to pay the private ambluance fee) as some private ambluance operators do not charge through the hospital bill system.

    Do note that according to the health minister and current prime minister of Singapore, No Singaporean is deprived of medical treatment no matter how poor he/she is.

    Just for the record, lest people get the misimpression that I'm a mod troll, my comments are given both to mods and normal members alike.

    Unlike other users that you may encounter, I do not set out specifically to target moderators. I give my views based on the comment and not based on the person.

    I do not believe in personal attacks, setting out to specifically target a person, or the like, and I do think such an association may be uncalled for.

    In this particular instance, I believe that you were making your comments in your personal capacity, and hence, I responded to you on that basis.

    At no time was I trying to challenge your authority or your status as moderator. I do note that you were not acting in any discernable official capacity in this and hence, my remarks were made accordingly.

    As said before, I do not see any need to win or lose, and much less, to win or lose to a "mod". I do not derive any satisfaction from "winning a mod" as you say.

    I understand that the admin's position has been (and hopefully currently still is) that mods, as normal members, are entitled to their own personal views and comments in the various threads, outside of their official capacity as moderators.

    When making such comments in a non-officious capacity, I do not think that members should have to worry about offending a moderator, or be called a mod troll; just because one responds to a comment made by a moderator in a non-officious capacity.

    If however, there has been a change in position on how moderators are to be treated, I would be grateful for your clarification in this regard.

    I don't think that it is healthy to have one set of rules which says that mods can post in their personal capacity (when members try to hold moderators to a higher standard (such as not bickering, not using rude remarks etc)) when they post, because they are moderator); but yet then say that responding to a moderator posting in his personal and non-officious capacity is mod trolling.

    You say you were willing to let it drop, but in the same post you decided to post a response? And when I say I'm willing to agree to disagree and drop the matter you then wanted to make even more responses?

    Finally, why do you say "wrong thread"? In what way was I trying to be friendly in a wrong thread? I'm perplexed here.

    hmm, actually depends on situation, i consider the previous as 'healthy discussion', unless otherwise known as minor mod trolling.

    but the later part when i already say end, he still wanna harp on it... then consider trolling...

    well, mods are public targets, members can just get dereg, rereg, and mods get targeted again... so fun to win a mod eh? dunno what kinda gratification it derives out and from it.

    but i give benefits of doubt to vince that he is just trying to be friendly to mods with his unusual warmth and often wrong threads.
