ICBC(china's biggest bank) singapore branch issues dual currency unionpay creditcard

Hi, just got this card and it seems none mentioned here yet.

The card will be good if you visit china often and spend a lot in RMB, since all transactions in China will be billed in RMB and you can choose to pay in either RMB or SGD, incurs no forex loss. any charges in Spore or other regions (inlcuding HK) will be in SGD.

And if you are taking china domestic flight, best of it is that u can use upto 38 lounges in china by simply showing the card...

however, it will be a bit troublesome to pay off the bills, unless u have an account with them, u have to either pay by cheque (in SGD) or go to there only branch in john hancork tower...

Anyone has successfully applied and received the card? Can I check how long does it take for the card to be approved and received? I may be travelling to China next month and thinking of applying of this card if the approval time does not take too long.
