Guys, be objective, $5 will deter lots of unwanted people loitering around your estate. School kids making out, vandalizing the estate, all the extra ppl hoarding the lifts. I approve strongly of the move, and its not about the money.
I think its just a temporary thing for crowd control, afterall, its the FIRST HDB Flat to be 50 storey tall..in years to come, when more and more 50 , 60 storeys HDB coming up, they will probably waive off this "fee".
$5 is consider okay, if im staying there, it really deficts the purpose if there are so many people lottering around when im paying quite a sum of money to my flat...
You like it, you pay. You don't like it, go somewhere else for fresh air loh...:bsmilie:
Back to the subjest. I think moving forward, this is going to be a 'pay-and-pay' society. The government will always give us choices. If you like one thing good, then will have to pay. If no money or don't like to pay, there are other 'not-so-good' alternatives too. For this case, if you don't like to pay, then go some other parks, which is a good alternative too.
