TRANSPORT FARE MAY GO UP, SURPRISED?

Oh dear! Here we go again. Transport Minister Khaw Boon Wan raised the possibility of transport fares rising again in Parliament. Of course, he masked the important statement about TRANSPORT COST RISING, by saying that it is not sustainable for taxpayers to increasingly subsidise the cost of operating Singapore's public transport systems.

Try to make it look nice by saying taxpayers money should not be used to pay to sustain transport costs, but at the same time increase the actual transport cost, so we really pay for it. Water cost up, transport fares also up. Was, this year Parliament is all about increasing prices. Are they trying to make us all pay the price fro not voting them? That's why the 30% water fee increase?

COFFEE PRICE ALREADY UP TO PREPARE FOR WATER PRICE HIKE

Parliament now debating about the increase on water prices. To me, what for debate some more? Decision already made, it's not like they debate here and there, water prices will be reduced by 30%. Decision already made, we will have to pay 30% more for water usage, so make sure we all know how important water is.

Sad thing is, this morning, I had my usual coffee at this coffee stall at Ang Mo Kio Ave 4, Blk 628. The stall owner said they already increased the price coffee at 10 cents per cup!

PRIVATE CARPARK OPERATORS TO FOLLOW HDB LEAD, WILL RAISE PARKING FEES IN TANDEM

Private parking operators expected to raise the cost of parking in order to the match the higher public parking rates starting December this year. Industry leaders claims that private operators peg their fees to public rates and usually raise them in tandem. There is a high chance of private parking operators raising their fees because during the last increase in public carpark fees back in 2002, private operators used the opportunity to up their prices too.

IF A DOG STANDS FOR ELECTION AGAINST THE PAP, I WILL VOTE FOR IT

Election is coming already and all Singaporeans need to do the right thing. This is Singaporean's one in five year chance to teach the PAP a lesson. After 5 years of no results and many problems disrupting our lives, it is time to make a strong stand and vote against the incumbents. Even if a dog stands for election this GE, I will vote for the dog rather than the PAP. The time for change is now, stop being a stupid Singaporean.
