    passing on costs seems e prefered way in tis day & age...

    Why contribute to another's economy?

    lol. yatlapball - cos ar, everytime you buy something you are contributing to someone else's economy unless

    a) the shop is singapore owned
    b) the product is singapore made
    c) all the parts singapore made
    d) even the paper used to print the receipt in the shop must be singapore made

    by the time you reply this, i suspect you'll be looking at the bottom of your mouse. there, 90% chance you have contributed to someone else's economy!

    Good evening to you

    Yes we are contributing to others, but why contribute *all* of it to others?

    Spending in singapore means some amount of it goes back into Singapore's economy. (ok, im sounding damn pro-singapore and patriotic i know)

    ya, i know la, just bored at night here

    relax! of course everyone wants to contribute a little help to singapore, it's our homeland after all.

    but you're only one party, frankly your decision doesn't really matter. of course the same goes for many other issues, but well, we have the starfish story, there's no right or wrong in actuality when you ponder about it

    if being offered a well-paying job overseas, would you take it? if yes, would this be considered as contributing to another's economy?

    SGD $10.50 to me is cheap seeing how I pay the same amount, in Aussie dollars, for a weekday movie.

    weekend movies for me are like, $15 AUD.

    Yes because you would be spending there mah...

    But I'm sure some of that "well-paying" salary makes its way back to sg no?

    haha..agree. cinemas is expensive. most of the times i bought book of 10 and share it together with friends...but again.. living standards is different..so if we convert sg living into oz living, we pay roughly same price.

    for me i'll still go for the whole go-and-watch-a-movie experience BUT only for movies that are worth watching on the big screen with excellent theatre surround sound like 5 out 5 star ratings. anything less than that.... just wait for the dvd to come out n rent it.

    Let them go up loh...if everyone don't watch, see they up or down?

    I've not been visiting cinemas for many years liao, unless friends jio or company gives free list. Else I won't purposely go buy tickets and walk in to the cinema. Prefer to buy DVDs from Amazon, get them delivered to my house and everyone in the family watch the movies comfortably with home theatre systems.
