    The new 7% GST will be announced on 15 Feb 2007.
    For those who studied and still remember history, 65 years ago (15 Feb 1942), on that day is a black sunday for Singapore. That's when Singapore fall to Japan occupation.

    Is history repeating itself in another form?

    Singapore to post Budget surplus of S$430m: PM Lee
    Posted on CNA: 17 February 2006 1615 hrs
    SINGAPORE : Prime Minister and Finance Minister Lee Hsien Loong said Friday the government will post a budget surplus of S$430 million for the fiscal year ending March 2006.

    No worries bro. You still can have your big plans if you buy your stuff from Malaysia.

    you ought to get the facts right. The problems with NKF is not purely the amount of money he earns but the manner the business is run. Loose or poor internal controls in an a charity organisation is not acceptable. Unorthodox rewarding scheme and renumerations are not right in any organisation.

But his $600,000 renumeration was not anything out of the ordinary.

    And please, your expenditure is not going to increase by 40% due to the GST increment...
