    u change the ruling party, u change the rules... many people didn't realise that esp the elder folks. they r making noises about new ERP gantries, price hikes, no aid cos "in betweener" syndrome or taking too long to look into their situation, etc.

    Govt is here to serve the people. Govt is not superior than the people. We give power to them when we chose them, so that they may serve our needs.

    Don't worry. Singapore has hope. When prices for everything else goes up, there's always Clubsnap to count on for photography services.

    Increased 40% from 5% to 7% for GST.
    Increased transport fare hike.

    Hey, I thought those amounts of cash we've already received in payoffs before the elections?

    Buy house have to pay GST or not? If so, jialat liao!

    During the election, I heard a few friends said "Better vote for P-A-P, else later they see we never vote for them in our ballot slips we may get into trouble with the govt!"

    Hahaha, it is really silly but whoever the clowns who spread such rumours really made this scare into one effective deterrent for some people who comtemplated voting for the oppositions.

    Start seeing how the cycle of economics work as countries develop on capitalist models like US, Japan, us and some countries in SEA are taking step-by-step towards.

    Eventually, it will all end up in the same pot - Life's gonna get harder and not easier where everyone's gonna be in the same ditch of shit. Its merely a matter of 'soon-or-later'.

    Ultimately guys, how are YOU ALL gonna handle the shit's that inevitably gonna land on u?

    Ultimately I guess the method of delivery hit everyone.

    Nobody's exactly pleased that GST's going to go up. Yes, that beloved 17-40L's price is going up. The 50mm f1.8 is going up as well.

    Unfortunately, PM Lee simply announced the rise of GST and did not further elaborate or shed light on the 'prospect plans to aid those poor' to at least give the citizens a glimpse of what's expected.

    then u'll see the re emergence of WW, like the previous 2 was also based on rapid industrialization... and same as communism where Marx (hopefully spell correct) based on the high difference between rich & poor made the sweeping change in revolution...

    anyway the gap is widening... time to fill the gap, or accept the differences...

    The world is going backwards at a much faster pace than it used to be.

    With technology advances, countries opening up, the simple human logic goes - Why must I buy from another country when I can produce it myself and cut costs?

    The other country sees that others are producing it at a lower cost and outsources productions eventually leading to a rise in economy for the other country and when carried out too drastically, the country that outsources work in turn suffers domestically.

    Raising taxes and stuff are all linked (and not mutually exclusive to Singapore) if we were to strip all the nitty-gritty bits away and looking at the problem down in the root. I'm wondering at some appalling mentality of carrying the idea of 'living a good life' right to the extremes - the mindless pursuit of 5Cs and living out caught in a debt of high lives, expenses & hobbies.

    Lax lah. They trying to catch up with the other country. High tax mah.. So they can have bonus. But yet, we are not given priviledge but to give them part of the money. And how is the helping of poor going to work? No idea. What package? An ID to show:"I Poor, No GST pls". Like that counterfiet pass come out.

    Gharment only squeeze us, not helping us. This is sure a letdown of ppl losing confident alr. We may have the luxury of using comp at home, but, how abt in next few years? Can we bloody afford it? Everything also wanna control. Ppl wanna oral XXX also wanna control. Whats freedom? Hmm.... Sound like another Ghetto.
