    Default What are u guys buying before the GST increase?

    The GST increase is coming soon. What kind of gadgets are u guys buying before the increase and why? Cameras, lens, tv, hp or others? Do u think that the shops will increase the price of these items or absorb some of the cost?

    GST charge when paying for the stuff, not when you buy the vouchers what....

    Do u guys NEED it?

    Using GST raise as an excuse to buy things that you WANT is possibly the dumbest thing ever to do.

    Might as well get a condo now, cos GST increasing....
