    Yep. I hardly switch on the aircon, at most once a month. Don't know what else I can cut to save on electrical bill. Stop watching TV or wash clothes by hands

    It's quite interesting to see that they project oil to be at $150-ish when the market thinks absolutely otherwise.

    Would be interesting to find out on how they reached this conclusion.

    vaporware!

    charging an increase before there is any is daylight robbery. most of us here cant demand a pay increase due to projected inflation either. no?

    Might as well get the street light switch off, use the reflective board along the road to indicate the road, just like australia. like that sure safe country $ on petrol.

    Better dun use too much electricity, everything goes up. No computer, not tv, no gaming. Let's all dive in the early Singapore era. Play catching better, training and healthy

    They just take back the rebate they say they are going to give.

    Better don't give..and don't rise. They think we are stupid.

    Its like that one lah...... like they compare salary with the top 5% of top earners in Singapore... but when they screw up (Mas Salamat)...... all keep quiet liao...... no balls!! No responsibility..... no accountability........

    I think the Singapore commandos should send our ranger to that place for training..... empty handed and that Mas can outsmart so many people.... what a shame leh!! And no, no one seems to be bothered by it liao.....

    If Mas Salamat is reading this, hope he does not come into CS, they sure will shut it down man!!!

    Just a question..How does oil prices affect the operating cost of power plants? I thought most of our power plants run on natural gas?

    any mega event will require lots of resources, electricity being 1 of them.

    much has been said about the pros of such events,
    . putting S'pore on the map (like we're still not on it...)
    . more buzz (looks who's picking up the tab)
    . higher GDP (from F1 Race, retailers near trackside there 'bomb', poor business)
    . S'pore is winner (wad is won? pride?)


    well, which mega event dun spike up the demand for electricity?
