    haiz......

    there was an article sometime back which my old memory has been failing..... that almost accurately depicts what the younger generation Singaporeans are now:-


    they described Singaporeans as ....."............Asset rich............cash poor....."

    that basically sums it up.

    What good is having lotsa assets when u need lotsa cash to feed your family? what good is having lots of assets when u need money to pay hospital bills.

    recently one of my friend stayed in a B2 ward.... for about close to 4 days.......total bill after subsidy....... is almost $800!

    $800 / $3 = 266.66666666666666666666666666667 which divided by 4 = 66.666666666666666666666666666667

    that can feed a child in a family of 4 a $3 plate of chicken rice for 66.66666667 times

    okay lar....its true that its not all gloom and doom....but there are really quite alot of families out there who can really do with some form of $$$ rather than "subsidy"

    that is just a tool to 'help the people', if the off set package can help so much, then a increase is not even needed, life is as per usual without it, wouldn't it be better? we know who will gain at the end of the day, the poor.... like me

    my personal opinion is that....might as well don't give.

    Their policy of take first, give slowly back later...
    if we were to do the same, we will kena humtum left right center, hounded by
    lawsuit for stuff we owe them. (eg.bills) :P

    I think many are not convinced by their budget plans, all i see is "praise articles" in papers. zzz....

    Just spend less la..forget about the luxury. Singaporean like to talk and talk, complaint and complaint la...after a while just keep quiet and accept it. Just like last time when GST increased from 3 to 5%, after a while ppl still keep spending and buying condos, cars....
    Dont waste your energy, whatever govt do just accept it. Anyway, we still vote for them when come to election. We are so rely on govt and do you have a choice

    take the % increment as a trade-off for the peace and stability of Singapore and hey presto, suddenly it all seems so much easier to swallow and live on!
