I checked with DBS today, they say there is a charge of $5 if money is drawn from Hong Kong ATMs.

Are you sure if the person you spoke to understand that it's specifically from DBS(HK) atms? Well if that's the case then they'd better start updating their website.


from http://dbs.com/posb/posbatm/#global
  1. There's a charge of S$5 per cash withdrawal on overseas Cirrus ATMs. You will enjoy a preferential flat service fee of S$2 if you use your new ATM Card at the ATMs of Bank Internasional Indonesia and Bank Danamon (Indonesia), Bank of Philippines Island (Philippines) and HDFC Bank (India).
  2. Cash withdrawal at DBS Hong Kong ATMs will be free of charge.
  3. The amount withdrawn in foreign currency at overseas Cirrus ATMs or purchases made in foreign currency at Maestro terminals will be converted to S$ equivalent using the bank's preferential rate of exchange.
anyway i drawed from the atm at New Town Plaza in Shatin last last saturday. the rate was around 5.136 when i calculate from my ibanking details.

Because of this, i go opened a new account. But i went to 2 counters, both ladies tell me there is $5 charge unless i sign using Master. Since i didnt have a hard copy of the webby on the spot, I can't argue.

I just submitted feedback on DBS website, maybe they will clarify the matter.

hi pals, those who stayed before in YMCA Intl House, ask you ar, if i am taking City Bus A21 from Airport, which bus stop should I alight? There are some confusing result from the Internet

frm YMCA webby states Bus Stop 6

but from City Bus webby bus stop 6 is MongKok. Bus stop 9 then is Yau Ma Tei.

So which should be the correct one? Any advise? Thanks...

Hi there,

I just called up YMCA for you. Pls get off at bus stop #9, 文明里, 彌敦道 . and then walk the opposite way....about 5 mins...you will see a HSBC and your hotel is just right next to it....

FYI, YWCA's # is (852) 2771 9111
