what is even more interesting is this small little local eatery off the street, someone foot my bill!
My sense just directed me into this place.
While I get to the car park this morning, i saw the tree work contractor getting ready to do some work. The manager whom i know from that contracting company talked to me. I was so happy that he had just certified as an arborist by ISA because it shows that he will be equipped with the basic tree knowledge. So I used my green laser printer to tell show him a topped branch and asked him to remind the foreign worker that is holding the chainsaw not to do such work. He replied : aiya, as long as no public complaints, the management is happy, our job is done.
We talked further about his other sites.
He was mentioning that he had suggested to do crowning and pollarding on one of the street trees. I further asked him to elaborate about the 2 methods mentioned.
Such methods are terribly not recognised and prohibited as a tree practitioner, especially when one is an ISA Certified Arborist. The idea of topping wasn't even drilled into him.
I am very disappointed with what the ISA Certified Arborist program that was conducted by the training branch of a government agency.
I had bad stomach for the past 4 days and tried to be my own doctor by taking traditional medication. The final straw was on friday night 8pm. My usual clinic was closed and i have to visit a 24hours clinic near my house. The consultation charge between 8-10pm was $30 which is very reasonable. The doctor tapped my stomach and asked if I have irregular meal. I said yes. Then he said there are little acid in my stomach and it will cause stomach upset. In the end, the medication was over hundred dollars. With the consultation fee, it was about $140++++. I chosed to pay only the $30 consultation fee and did not collect the medicine.
Saturday afternoon 2pm, i went around Clementi and all the clinics (i walked to 6 clinics) operated until 1230pm and will only open on Monday.
I found one at blk 308 clementi Ave 4, Clementi Healthpoint Family Clinic. Medicine. Open on Sat night and consultation plus medicine is $30. Doctor say is just some virus. Took antibiotics. Next day I am well again.
