The spin doctors are having a gala time this year. Thanks to them, they've inflated property prices by 50-75% in most areas. The higher and faster you rise, the harder you fall. Good luck.

And this one takes the cake - 2.5K rent for a 3 room apartment, thanks to some fantastic reporting.

Some more of the spin :bsmilie::bsmilie::bsmilie:

*************quote ***********************

Earlier, Minister for National Development Mah Bow Tan had expressed his concern over reports of record property prices.

Mr Au agreed that the media had to be "very careful" with information supplied by third parties, "especially when there might be a vested interest".

The latest episode goes to show how the mainstream media and the blogosphere could complement each other in revealing "the truth", he added. "Working together in a more active media scene benefits everybody."

benefits who ? Everybody !!! Yeah :bsmilie:

Don't think it's fair to expect reporters to check out every story which is fed to them; in many cases newspapers rely on international news agencies to feed them news, especially overseas as well - sometimes facts get twisted due to errors and all that, so like Wolfgang says it'd do well to take everything with a pinch of salt.

If something is too good, too bad to believe, perhaps not to believe.

For the bun thing, China has done some pretty amazing things before, I guess. If say, it was reported to happen in Singapore - you'd be sure people would be questioning the authencity of such a report, if you catch my drift.

Today Straits Times clarified that the 3-room flat is actually 2 x 3-room flat combined. Currently rented by a company.
