    Joshie Boy you have your mind in the gutter. You need to cut the Langtrees out of your life. And for god's sake quit going to the Club X in Northbridge.

    No worry mate. Langtrees & Club X are bits of shazza. I have better taste than that. In those places, you will end up using the toilet paper to wipe the shit off the tip of your nose. Yes, better spend money on a picture frame.

    So the "nasty" letter has to do with withdrawing CPF as opposed to renouncing citizenship?

    Quite immediate. 2-3 weeks at most. Once you're no longer a potential liability to the state, they have no interest in holding your money and paying you 2.5% interest.

    I did mine at ICA there. First go and get the form and then fill it out. I remember they ask for every member of your family, thier IC # all that, then it took them almost 2 months to send me the letter of renounciation to my home here overseas. I also asked them to expedite it but still took about 6 weeks. After that you have to fill out the CPF application withdrawl "on grounds of leaving Singapore permanently" This took another 6 weeks to process and send me my money. Oh and its faster if they send you your CPF in S$ locally in Singapore. They wont remit the $ in any other currency other than S$ so take that into account.

    So did you manage to make a huge gain after CPF withdrawal?
    The return is huge esp in this climate.
