  1. Increase of taxes, as country is more developed. Though a citizen of a higher tax bracket status, I do encourage to the gov to tax more on the rich, while maintaining those who are at the mid or lower tier tax brackets. This is a way to contribute back to the country. Taxes Must increase for social spending
  2. Pet owners appear to be spending more on furry companions, going by the business at the shops and farms. Shop owners said customers are willing to pay more for the premium breeds, compared to five years ago. They are also prepared to spend more on grooming and veterinary fees. The Holland Lops, Miniature Lion Lops and Netherland Dwarf rabbits do not come cheap. Pet shop owners said some of the more exotic breeds cost between S$800 and S$1,000. One of the rabbits is touted as a champion at a rabbit show in the US, and comes with a price tag of S$8,000. According to pet shop owners, interest in these American-imported rabbit breeds began two years ago. Pet owners are also splurging on pet care, with some prepared to pay up to S$10,000 for surgery. Eric Lim, director of Ericsson Pet Farm, said: "Spending on animals has increased a lot. Like for example, in those days, they're willing to spend S$1,000 to S$2,000 on a dog. But today, people can spend up to S$10,000 on the dogs." Dr Jason Teo E-Shen, a veterinary surgeon, said: "They treat their pets as part of their family and are willing to go all the way. I think the newer generation is more educated. They do know a lot more about animals and they are willing to come down to consult a doctor when there is a problem."

    i noticed quite a fair bit of bros here are JB regulars including myself.. otherwise my observations from the onemotoring camera cant be wrong .. alwalys packed and jammed each weekend. I like to see how much are we contributing to the JB economy .. cus everytime i go will spend at least RM 200-300 depending on my purpose eg top up fuel , groceries, servicing car and makan etc.. On average i spend around RM$ 800-1000 per mth in Msia. A show of hands who spend monthly and on what? 1) < RM$1K 2) RM1-2K 3) > RM$2K
  5. One thing I don't like about our budget is the defence spending. 25% of our budget. For what??? And the stupid retired general still say EVERY CENT we spend in SAF is WORTH IT. What is he smoking??? I was recalled for my first reservist last year at age 36. I was a clerk during NS. My reservist unit is wargame center. They called around 50 of us, and most of us are 36 years old, first time reservist. Call us back for one week to do what? teach us how to use a stupid wargame simulation program and press button for the SAF trainees. So our reservist is first 3 days training how to use program which can be done in 1day. most of the time is spent idling.... Then the last 2 days, the trainess come in, then it is like a big wayang exercise. Play computer game like that. For that they recalled fifty 36 year olds and paid our companies one week of our wages. I don't understand why they don't call those young reservist who has just started their careers and probably cost much less. OR a better solution is ask those SAF trainees to spend one more day learning how to press the mouse themselves. I bet their pay is much less than a normal 36 year old. It is totally not cost efficient. It is like spending money because if I don't, next year my budget get cut. It is crazy. Just to save the SAF trainees one day of their time, they are willing to pay the same number of 36 year old reservists ONE WEEK of pay just to train us, so we can run the programs for them. How wasteful can you be? I am curious about the experience of other bros here who are in perhaps operation ready units. How "wasteful" or "frugal" is your SAF unit?
  6. Will you or your GF/wifey spend 136k to look like that? Well if you have the cash....

    About spending in US

    Hello guys, I need some help. Where can you get coins in USA? I exchanged all dollar notes at money changer but heard coins there are widely used and is rather essential. Banks here/there? Or just spend there to get the change in coins? I need the coins for parking toll charge etc which do not accept bills. Noob here btw. Thanks!
  8. See this clip This guy talks about financial ratios. He says a home 4x your annual income will result you spending 30% of your salary on the roof over your head. I think many people are spending like 10x their annual income on homes? Of course US home rates are higher but we cant expect our home rates to be forever at 2% pa. To retire at 65 we need to save 15-20% of our income so that at 65 we would have a saving/investment of12x our annual income. Can be done?
  9. The man Suriya will have to overtake By Cheryl Tay FOR Singapore's Suriya Bala Kerisnan, the man he'll want to beat is Rio Haryanto. Who is Rio? An almost full-page advertisement in the Straits Times last Friday called him Indonesia's F1 world champion, but added in smaller print,coming soon. Meet Formula BMW Pacific's current championship leader from Indonesia, a 15-year-old business student based in Singapore who dreams of reaching Formula One one day. Before this weekend's race, Rio was fully funded by Kiky Stationery, a business in Indonesia, owned by his 50-year-old father Sinyo. Born in Solo, Central Java, Indonesia, Rio is currently residing near the Katong area and studying business at FTMS Global Singapore. After consecutively winning the last five rounds of the Formula BMW Pacific series, Rio managed to clinch a sponsorship deal with Indonesian cellular telecommunication company Telkomsel (35 per cent owned by SingTel) last month. Contract The deal is worth 50,000 euros ($104,000) and is valid for a contract of three years. "We approached Telkomsel since the start of this year and have been pursuing them since. They finally agreed to fund Rio with a deal worth 50,000 euros and that covers about a third of this season's expenses," said Sinyo, who makes it a point to follow his son to every race. Sinyo has spent more than a million euros on Rio's racing career since Rio started karting at the age of six. Rio - the youngest of four sons - participated in his first competitive kart race at the age of nine. He went on to conquer the Asian Karting Open Championship,winning the Junior category three years in a row from 2005 to 2007. In 2006, he also won the Rotax Max Asian Championship. Last year, Rio raced in the Asian Formula Renault championship, Formula Asia 2.0 and Formula BMW Pacific. Switching from Asia Racing Team (which is the team now hoping to groom Singapore's Suriya for next year) to Questnet Team Qi-Meritus this year, Rio is competing in his first full season of Formula BMW Pacific. The weekend started well for Rio as he took second place at the first race at the MarinaBay circuit. But he failed to repeat his performance in the second race yesterday and finished fifth. "After investing so much money, of course I would want my son to win. The next step forward for him would be to go for GP3," said Sinyo. The GP3 Series is a single-seater motor racing series that will start next year as a feeder series for the GP2 Series, F1's strongest feeder series. Rio told The New Paper: "Like most, my dream is to become an F1 driver. "I know few Asians have succeeded in F1, but I will definitely do my best to achieve the highest possible level in motorsport." Paid to drive SURIYA Bala Kerisnan - without any major team or individual sponsorship like Rio Haryanto - has an uphill task to reach the standards shown by Brazilian Felipe Nasr. With limited sponsors, Nasr, 17 - a guest driver during this weekend's Formula BMW Pacific race and winner in the two races on Saturday and yesterday - did not have enough funds when he joined Euro International. But Nasr impressed his team boss Antonio Ferrari enough so the latter agreed to fund the remaining three-quarters of the budget. He visited Singapore, fresh from winning the championship title at the recently-concluded Formula BMW Europe (a step higher than Formula BMW Pacific). Prior to Nasr's first full season in Formula BMW Europe this year, he had only been a guest driver in the two Formula BMW Americas support races to the Brazilian Grand Prix last year. Experience Other than that, his racing experience was limited to karting only. Ferrari, who has been at the helm of the team for two decades, told The New Paper: "Nasr surprised everybody at the testing. In the same car, he set a time four tenths quicker than the lap record we set in the Formula BMW world final. He's amazing, I'm so glad I found him."

"Some gantries already have an electronic board alongside the gantry serving the same purpose but, as Transport Minister Raymond Lim conceded in Parliament earlier this year, these are sometimes too small for the motorists to read . . . The tab for the 70 gantries therefore comes to $4.55 million." So wrote Maria Almenoar of Straits Times 12 May 2008. you say leh?
