    they brought joy to the people of singapore and then they take joy out of the people of singapore. it's better that they don't bring joy into our lives... coz this joy lasts only for 3 days but the pain lasts indefinitely.

    again, singapore is a country where the rich come and play and the poor can only watch and suffer. this is all bullcrap!

    ... this is my country, these are my friends (those men in white)... we are singapore, singaporean...

    A few months ago, we received the GST offset package, the electricity tariff was increased a few weeks later.

    This month same thing, get GST offset, tariff increased.

    Not only that we've our GST increased to 7%, take the pill now when you're well.

    S$150 million for the Singapore F1, now the dust have settled and we're the one paying the electricity bill for the fist night race.

    night race must be dark, why in sunny S'pore organise night race?! the sun never increase tariffs, its always free from 7am-6.30pm (factoring the different timings for different months).

    the F1 cars are 'fine' machines indeed!

    Everything will continue to go up unless there is a great depression.

    Now that hungry ghost has a bigger appetite, he can only say bon appetite.

    2009 will be an interesting year. Dont bang too much hope into it.

    Did SP buy oil when it was higher priced, and now looking for Singaporeans to pick up the bill?

    21% is really ridiculous. The CEO wants his own F1 car is it?

    Mr khoo khoo predict $155/barrel in next mth, as such review is done every 3mth. They are just afraid of losing money thus having the 21% charge bring forward should there be any increase in fuel price. This is ridiculous and outrageous for them to increase up to 21% like nobody business. Now, they think Singaporean all very rich after seeing so many fans at F1 track.

    Down to that EMA CEO! What if price never increase, will they rebate us back? Fancy them gave us money ytd, and now we got to return them back. What's the use? This is just a show leh...

    You are right about the chain effect. Inflation is going to remain high for quite a while.

    Already been saving so much lately and I think there's no use if i can drop the price lower with 21%. But yet when I read on newspaper that they compare with people who always turn on aircon everyday... get a life with report... not ALL turn on aircon everyday like that family...
