    I walk to work. I walk to post office. I walk to supermarket etc.

    I saw a documentary about an old Chinese Tofu maker who walked 3 hours each way to the nearby town from his village to sell Tofu.

    I want to see more like him in Singapore.

    3) Having to cope with increases of daily necessities related to GST of 7 percent
    4) Having no money to buy car, no money to take taxi and yet every year have to content with increase in Public Transport fees when they are making high profits each year.
    Maybe that is why we complain.....

    Amen to that.
    The media can go write all its rosy reports, but even if your pay increases do calculate whether it keeps up with the increase in prices all over Singapore.
    And whether your pay increases do not come with strings attached (like more work).

    Which is a good question, how many people here have had pay raises, and by how many percent?

    Mr Australia,

    Where does this Mr Tofu work when you saw this documentary?

    How far is your work place from home? How far is your home to the post office. How far is your home from the supermarket?

    taking taxi would be more value effective than taking a bus or mrt these days.
    from orchard tower to charm @ victoria st, taxi fare $4.
    bus fare for 4 adults for $1.20 x 4 = $4.80.

    good news for taxi drivers.

    Stamps fees was increased on a quiet note. 50 cents to a dollar for food at food centre etc fees increase giving the excuse of GST etc..... etc.... Do hawkers make enough or profit? and what is enough if you are one of them.

    Why is there isn't any complaint? ............Carry placecards at the food centre and you know what will become of you. ANy body want and prepare to do it?

    World class caters to the rich only, not the masses.
