A SMALL PLATE OF CAI FAN COSTS $10.30 AT VIVOCITY!

I ordered at the cai fan, cause i wanted to eat something cheaper. I ordered egg with some small prawns, one fish and a veg with curry sauce.

The total price was $10.30! When the guy read out the pricing, I was shocked and thought it was a joke at first as i thought that my 10 dollars note that I was holding in my hand should be enough. In the end I have no choice but to pay. The portion they gave was not even worth the price.

SINGAPORE LOSING LUSTER AS TOURISM DESTINATION AS COST GETS HIGHER

According to data from a medical tourism index released last month, Singapore was ranked the most attractive among seven Asian countries in terms of "patient experience", but was also one of the least attractive where costs were concerned. In contrast, the attractiveness of patient experience in countries such as Malaysia and Indonesia has grown since 2015. Another advantage these countries have over Singapore is the relatively lower cost of their healthcare services.

This is very symptomatic of Singapore nowadays. We have always prided ourselves as the leader when it comes to many things in the Asia region. But, while the services factor still remain relatively high in reliability, the costs that have spiraled upwards means that Singapore is becoming too expensive for tourists to come. Could we finally see the day when Singapore is no longer the top choice for others in the region, when they are many other cheaper alternatives around us? Then we would be in trouble.

$600,000 HDB BTO FLATS PRICED OUT OF REACH OF AVERAGE S'POREANS?

Do not underestimate the true significance of the current pricing of the flats in bidadari and geylang in the latest bto intake exercise. Public housing flats shouldn't be priced so out of reach for citizens to apply. In this latest bto intake the lowest selling point of a four room flat is at $475000 while the highest is at $604000. Just the initial cpf ten percent down payment will be $47500 to $60400. Even if both husband and wife each earn $4000 per month with a combined household income of $8000 they will still not be able to afford paying for their flats in full using cpf alone.

MADE-IN-SG SIMILAC PLUS MILK POWDER IS CHEAPER TO BUY IN JB THAN IN OUR OWN COUNTRY

I Saw this Similac Gain Plus Stage 3. in JB Aeon. The price is about RM130 before discount for a 1.8kg tin. Similarly, SG is selling close to $90 which i just bought at Sheng Siong. What is really shocking is that Similac from AEON JB is now Product of Singapore!!! So a product of Singapore is being exported out to Malaysia and is being sold much more cheaper than in the production country of Singapore.

FIFTH NEWATER PLANT OPENS, WILL WATER COST KEEP GOING UP?

The fifth NEWater plabt was officially opened today at Changi. Based on the reports, the opening of the fifth plant can now meet 40% of Singapore's water needs.

This would mean that Singapore would have to rely less and less on the Linggiu Reservoir in Johor. However, since NEWater plants means that water will be treated and re-treated to make sure that it is safe for consumption, that means the cost for maintaining the plants will be quite high. Will this high cost then be passed on to the consumers?
