CNY money. Also a lot of small business owners keep some cash at home in case they need it.

I keep a few hundred dollars on hand most of the time, because I need the cash to do "Pai Dai Chee" (bad things in Hokkien).

Have a few k at home for emergency use. For this case, does fire insurance cover the 10k that got burnt to dust?

First person I thought about when I saw the topic was my sifu.

 

Enye , people want to know why you would rather keep the 700k under your bed than in the bank.

I don't think this has anything to do with SCDF. When I first bought my flat, the fire insurance cover furniture, valuables and maybe reno (not too sure).

huh.

lol u in JC or secondary school ar, need this to help control spending?!

 

No offence, but it's a dead silly reason at our age and above.

 

Maybe if u like to go casino and only bring 200 dollars there, then that's a valid reason.

what I meant is more fires will be happening if ppl can just claim they are like hoseyboh or enye ... who keep more than 700k under their beds or biscuit tins.
