Gift for Singaporean babies born next year to celebrate Golden Jubilee

 

 

http://www.straitstimes.com/breaking-news/singapore/story/coming-soon-gift-singaporean-babies-born-next-year-celebrate-golden-ju

 

Every Singaporean child born next year will receive a special Jubilee Baby Gift to mark the 50th anniversary of the country's independence.

The gift will be "a uniquely-Singaporean keepsake filled with practical yet symbolic items for our Golden Jubilee babies", said Minister in the Prime Minister's Office Grace Fu, who oversees population issues, on Tuesday.

 

Its exact contents will be up to Singaporeans to suggest. People with ideas are asked to send them to the National Population and Talent Division over the next seven weeks, until May 15.

 

A five-member panel led by Families for Life council member Anita Fam will advise on the suitability of the suggestions. A list of the top ideas will be drawn up for people to vote and those with the most votes will be included in the gift set.

Sarppork. I will then we able to afford a Toyota Wish that I have been wishing for.

EDIT :

This morning, radio mentioned that new borns in 2015 would have a gift to commemorate Sin's 50th anniversary. Amongst other things, it would included the flag.

 

Noting that TCB also mentioned that if he was them, he would call for GE 2015 on the same reasons. + 150th mentioned coe would soften from 2015 ( give some time to progressively taper down + "goodies" from Budget 2015 ), I suspect next GE could be in the vicinity of National Day 2015....

Haha...I like this idea. But I don't think it is enough to entice me to go for 3rd one. Two is enough.

Yes, such divisive policies were cited by TKL.

 

Of course. my analogy was partly in jest. [:)]

 

If its on a serious, I just hope that in view of GE, it softens.

 

As for free, 99.999% can forget it.

Yes, its a lifelong commitment. Oc & myself are having our hands full.

 

EDIT : I deliberately wanted to keep their age close so that they can relate/support each other. Below 10, they can be playmates. Above 10, they can be good friends rendering each other support.

 

If we had a 3rd child, it could be like 1, 6 & 8. :mellow:

3 COEs will be more like it given that the kid will be a 30 years problem. I am just working out a fair rate of exchange.

Their SOP in squeezing us for money:- announce some kind of helps / packages first to make people feel good, then followed by a sharp chopper or big vacuum cleaner to suck us dry.

 

Tolong, Tolong, please don't like that 'help' us!!!

If age gap is too big ---- difficult to recycle older one's clothing for the younger bro/sister.... :-(

Actually if really got free COE or car, it could work. Because its not really to entice those that already have kids, esp if the mother is already old.

 

More for those just got married, maybe also just got new flat, thinking of not having kids / wait few years later. For them, their concern may be if I got kids, very inconvenient, who to take care of kids, bring them around. With a car, they may well take the plunge

They give you free COE, but raise the petrol and milk powder price enough to kill you back again and again.....later ERP.......diapers..........

GST....school fees.............

 

then you got to sell your COE back to them inorder to make ends meet....ZZZzzzz

2-3 yrs gap is ideal for good companionship, not anything beyond.

Say already, the gift will be "a uniquely-Singaporean keepsake filled with practical yet symbolic items for our Golden Jubilee babies". So will have:

 

- packet of tissue paper to chope seat

- HDB ballot form

- PAP stickers, small flag, umbrella

- bottle of NEWater

- voucher to make first pair of spectacles

 

I LOVE SINGAPORE!

Quotes[edit]
  • If it is not totalitarian to arrest a man and detain him, when you cannot charge him with any offence against any written law - if that is not what we have always cried out against in Fascist states - then what is it?… If we are to survive as a free democracy, then we must be prepared, in principle, to concede to our enemies - even those who do not subscribe to our views - as much constitutional rights as you concede yourself. Opposition leader Lee Kuan Yew, Legislative Assembly Debates, 21 September 1955

 

  • If Singapore is a nanny state, then I am proud to have fostered one. Lee Kuan Yew, in a wry aside to critics who have accused him of governing Singapore like a nanny state, From Third World to First, The Singapore Story: 1965-2000, Lee Kuan Yew. 2000

 

  • When I call a man openly, you're a liar, you're dishonest, and you do not dare to sue me, there's something basically wrong. And I will repeat it anywhere and you can't go and say, oh, I have apologised; let's move on. Can you commit a dishonourable -- maybe even one which is against the law -- an illegal act and say, let's move on because I've apologised? You may move on but you're going to move on out of politics in time. Lee Kuan Yew on James Gomez in 2006.

 

  • But we either believe in democracy or we not. If we do, then, we must say categorically, without qualification, that no restraint from the any democratic processes, other than by the ordinary law of the land, should be allowed… If you believe in democracy, you must believe in it unconditionally. If you believe that men should be free, then, they should have the right of free association, of free speech, of free publication. Then, no law should permit those democratic processes to be set at nought. Lee Kuan Yew, 27 April 1955

Absurd. Definitely I wont let the government put a price tag on my kid. I will just strive work harder, 2,3 jobs if really there is a need/urge to own a car.

 

I am sure thosr that support this scheme wont mind their child to be asked "how much was your coe".

 

Sad and angry. There are many other incentive. Free medical, education etc.

 

Our children ain a commodity.
