    I calculated for the set, it used to be S$2/= after increased of 2% it should be increased by 0.04 cents instead of 20 cents. I think I am not as good in maths as the boss.

    see???!!! hehe I rest my case. Stay tuned to 2047 (well for me any way...if I am still a round)

    You forgot...Rich people with more money to have more kids....so lucky rich kids with more rich toys. Hey ..... I am not anti rich...More power to them if they can afford it and know the value of money.

    Another reason why more cars and more better looking cars....LONGER INSTALMENT SCHEME. does anyone remember that there was a time you only get like 5-6 yrs max to pay for a car's instalment. Now you can get 10 yrs. But franly I really can't imagine paying for a car for "T E N FREAKING Y E A R S"

    Your most valuable asset is yourself. You can make yourself more valuable, or less valuable.

    If what you do is worth $1***, then why should your boss pay you more? If you quit, he will just hire another another sucker who will do your job for $1*** or maybe even less. However, if you can do more than the other sucker, then your boss will pay you more. Else you will leave, and he cannot find someone to do your job at your pay.

    That's life.

    Damn straight! ....

    aiyo...cooking rice very easy lah....heh. take rice put in a large pot and rinse it clear with running water till the water is reasonably clear. then strain out all the water, pour in about one cup worth for a typical cooker size. Put more water your rice become porridge hehe....so you have a choice of rice with soy sauce or porridge with soy sauce heheheheh..
