I arrived in Taipei, Taiwan tonight for a work trip. My colleagues know I like Japanese food so we headed to Matsui which is a popular Japanese restaurant.
We ordered a sashimi platter that included lobster. The upper half of the lobster was intact and the tail portion was split open, revealing the raw meat. I guess lobsters can sustain tremendous shock to their bodies and survive as our little critter decided to wave at us while we ate it. I’ve eaten lobster sashimi before but never seen one quite so active.
Umm… yum, I guess.
Just an FYI for employers in Singapore who are going through the National Service Deferment application process – when the employee fills out the NS Deferment application (MyDeferment application) from www.ns.sg, it states that the employer must fax, within 3 days, the following:
- Letter From Employer
- Letter of indemnity
- Contract details; if any
I think most employers will be puzzled, wondering why they need to send a letter of indemnity with a request for deferment. Searching online did not reveal any information related to NS.
I called the NS office and asked them what I was supposed to put in the letter of indemnity. Their answer: “No need.”
So there you go – if you’re wondering what to do for the letter of indemnity, don’t worry. You don’t need to submit it.
