    Agreed. $9000 for everyone who goes through NS is a lot of money, no joke. Even if there are restrictions, there are still people who benefit from it. It's still better than not giving out money, or maybe we will all be happy when they don't give us any money

    we just wait and see the details. that amount is just 'an amount'. how we NSman benefited from it, will be subjective. some of us still serving,some just 'retired' and some on reserve troop.

    question is, will we,sons of this country who serve NS, get equally?

    sometimes this is not very true. You never heard before "give you an egg, take back a whole chicken"?

    Agree, but for 2 reasons,

    - I m not a beggar n

    - the money still comes from the pple thru taxes.

    Why would I want charity that's from my own pocket?

    $9000 is a lot of money, it may not be a lot to you, but it is to many people in SG. The tax thing...well, just take it as part of giving back to society. It's part of the capitalist system anyway, redistributing income. It's always the middle-class who suffers the most in taxes, the rich have too much money anyway, and the poor get the money from the taxes. Middle class suck thumb.

    They get a cheapskate Hamilton watch but very often some units "run out of stock" and for some reason they cannot indent, so many Ex NSmen don't get it either.

    if everybody has 9000 in their pocket. let assume most add this 9000 to purchasing a house. they are willing to fork out 9000 cash as COV. do you think there is a diff?

    or most have extra 9000 budget for a house at good location or higher floor, everybody fighting to maximise this 9000; it will jolly well jack up the price again...

    oh please.

    The labelled old Singaporeans will know that the S$9000, comes with many strings attached and are worried as the help comes in paying more.

    Just look at the GST credit, on the day that it was given out, the electricity tariffs also goes up.

    seems like it applies only to those who reach the milestones on or after 29 Aug?
    those who already MR'ed will receive nothing ?

    If that's what it means, then the award is only catered to the younger dudes.
