    just alight at one MRT station or one bus stop earlier. Good exercise and save money to cover GST increased

    if continues to increase and I continue to stop one more station earlier, in the end I will totally walk to office

    Everything will increase in price. It's only a matter of time. Sad thing is that salary does not move in tandem and more people are being laid off.

    Corp tax does not see cash flow coming in immediately....it takes at least 18 months...

    GST immediate....cash flow can put in short term FD....earn interest....
