    While sales of personal safes is going up recently...

    is the bank guarantee a 100% guarantee? or do you get paid out of up to $x amount should the bank go under.


    on the other hand, massive withdrawals from banks will actually exacerbate the credit problem that banks are going through now.
    chicken fight!

    Seems to be S$20,000 according to this article:

    http://afp.google.com/article/ALeqM5...ibPdUEjupuKSAA

    Or it could be full guarantee of deposits, for a maximum of S$150 billion total, until Dec 31, 2010. Depends on how you read it. I hate the standard of journalism these days.

    More news articles :

    http://www.marketwatch.com/news/story/singapore-malaysia-join-bank-guarantee-bandwagon/story.aspx?guid={275B788F-E3A5-4586-8962-EAD16513E3B3}&dist=msr_1

    That's why, in my opinion, if you have cash in the bank, and owes the bank money for something (car, house, etc.) the safest bet would be to use the money to pay down your loan. Worst case when a bank collapses, your deposit will be gone (or reduced) but rest assured your debt would not be.

    Note the qualifier "just my opinion". Not advice. It's free opinion, and worth every single cent you paid for it

    If you put large amount of cash under a pillow, surely it would draw 'unwanted' attention from anybody...let alone someone work for a meager salary.

    It was meant as a joke! If you can't take it.....banned me please!

    It's obvious that he is joking in the 1st post, but just because it is a joke doesn't mean that it is automatically not offensive. In his 2nd post, he is not apologetic, but downright belligerent. There's been 2 posts on the topic of offensiveness (mine and the mod's) and neither are inflammatory. Funny how he should find those posts offensive to him, but thinks his joke is not.

    I'm chill. I can afford to be, because I don't belong to the group his joke offends.

    Kindly read back and see who over-reacted. In case you don't get what I mean, I refer to your exact phrase "if you can't take it banned me please".

    BTW I'm not sure where you're trying to link - when I click on it I get back the same post you just made. Recursive links?

    Well, I didn't report you or any of your posts, in case you're wondering. But from my earlier posts it should be pretty clear I agree with the message in that PM.

    To you the original post is a joke only, and that you don't find it offensive at all. But in a community it is also important that you respect the opinion of others, especially the opinion of those who administer and set the guidelines for the site.

    In case you still don't get it, it is not what you call them that is offensive, it is implying that they are thieves.

    Being a foreigner in another country, I thought you might be more sensitive to such issues. I guess your experience in Australia must be very positive.

    To each its own! we are shaped by different upbringings and set of values. Some are lighthearted, some are just 'small gas' or too serious in everything they do or see in life

    My experience? There can never be any negative experience as long as you got the MONEY!

    Maybe you have never been to Australia, as a young boy growing up.... I was called Nip or Ching. In return, I called them Skip, Wog and Abo
    Miraculously, we are still mates till these days!

    I presume you are currently in US? Maybe the people there are a lot different from the rest of the world?

    What friends call each other is one matter. What you call a complete stranger is totally different. To see how different people here are, why not visit, say, Oakland and shout "hey you (6 lettered racial slur for Blacks beginning with letter N)" in the streets and find out?

    As for being 小器 - I think your reaction to the whole issue is just totally out of proportion.

    Maid is just another word like housekeeper, domestic helper! Don't understand why you want to dwell over it. Again and again... Luckily, I din call them servants!

    Best to keep all your money underneath your own pillow.

    Heard one guy keeps half of his money underneath his wife's pillow and he never sees the money again.

    *sigh* you really don't get it, do you? It's not calling them maids that got you in trouble. It's because you implied they're thieves.
