    All above is what I could think of and can need not apply to anyone of you.
    Thanks for your great ideas. To add on, you can go to your friends' condo pools to swim, bathe and shower. Save water bills, pool entrance or club membership.

    50 cents per eggs, ok, can eat often. 60 cents, try to find 50 cents first. 70 cents, if no choice, get it else forget about it. 80 cents and above, get yourself a tray of eggs and cook your self or eat raw with hot milo, haha!

    Meals, buy 5 to 6 dishes and share. Cost less and can fill up too if you and partner are light eater. For me, no choice, can finish one box but will cut down on next meal, mostly maggi mee.

    I have stopped drinking coffee whether it is gourmet or kpt kopi. I have also stopped eating snacks and finger food. I have stopped subscribing to EPL. These I have control over.

    But what I have no control over are prices of petrol, utilities, basic food, etc.

    In view of increasing commodities prices, I am wondering if gst will be reduced to 6%. I am also interested with so many investments in coy dealing with commodities, will we have access to cheaper sources, or it is again shareholders value that matters.

    10 years later cost of living may be so high that number of suicides increase. Literally cannot afford the cost of living.

    Good idea. But I do not have the looks of a hunk or gigolo so I think I have to stick to these austerity measures.





    But if you can help find a rich old lady who is attracted to this look please pm me quickly.

    Sometimes I wonder if the recent increase in price of bread is because of inflation.

    cost of sugar has doubled since 2008. I should have taken my buddy Jim advice and long sugar in when he gave me this lobang in 2008. this is what is driving up cost of bread according to my friend who works in Gardenia factory.

    meanwhile landlords demand yield increases yoy. many landlords are REITs... which are ultimately owned by Tumor Sick Holdings...

    Maybe sunshine bread price went up when former CEO of SMRT became auric pacific CEO. It figures.

    Actually wheat price has fallen. So it may be a case of wanting more profits to please shareholders.

    But BreadTalk is much worse in charging high prices. Their few slices of bread cost a lot.

    I think you must drive. A lot of the MRT station toilets have hoses within the cubicles to wash the whole place, FYI. Unless of course you are an exhibitionist..
