....I would buy a few properties knowing they could go up so much. :D :D
Nah, property craze in SG no doubt so call " always up " but Gov do recently try to control as a lot people feel is getting crazy ...even come public housing can cost million at resale.

Nowadays everything has gone up in price, not surprised to see the HDBs being as costly as they are. Especially those in prime locations/jumbo flats. Still a great value for money for what you get, but I guess the shock lies in the fact that government housing is supposed to affordable.

Guess if you think about all the people who ballot unsuccessfully they must be making quite a lot.

i will try to get back to my ex and tell him how much I still love him. And tell him how much i regret for choosing money over him. (cause I flew here to SG for better pay and he stayed back home) I realize its not really about money, its about what makes you happy and being content with what you have. Now Im married because I got pregnant with this guy. The guy who is here and who loves me so much. I mean I got no regrets having our baby. But sometimes I think what if this baby belongs to my ex will I be more happy?

Its almost 4am and Im writing this. hahaha got frequent toilet trips and difficult to sleep and maybe my hormones playing with my emotion.

No point regretting the past, keep your head up and focus on the future.
