The funny thing watching the news last night was them trying to say, repeatedly, this report was more for foreign companies and HR guys to work out how much to pay guys locating here.
Hence cost of 'Public Housing' was not included and neither was 'Hawker Food' pricing. Forget the discussion that HDB prices are as high as private property
THEN, immediately after that, there was a report on the budget and how concerned local businesses were worried about higher operating costs and being uncompetitive in the region as a result. Sorry, typical force fed media saying one thing, then immediately saying something different as if the two stories were not related. I love the way the news treats each story as a story that has little or no relation to anything before or after.
Their first report tried to emphasis the 'World's Most Expensive City' had little or no relevance to the local population, then followed it up with major complaints about the cost of doing business, from locals.......
