And with the radio telling us this morning that SP-Power are to implement a ~6% increase in electricity prices in the first 1/4 of next year the pressures just keep coming.keepitreal wrote: The global credit crunch is just a tip of the iceberg. Rising energy prices have fuelled rising inflation across the globe and Singapore have seen record inflation increases most recently. All of this paints a very grim picture I'm afraid and the continued troubles in the middle east only add more petrol to the fire.

Greed can overcome many economic shocks!
They are done deals. The coming rise in Electricity tariffs was in the papers and the medical subsidies have already been cut drastically. After paying heaps of taxes here over the past quarter of a century, now that I'm old enough to start worrying about health issues, they are taking my subsidies away.

I'm also not prepared to downgrade and live in a HDB - call me a snob, but I grew up in a council house in the UK and I'm not going back down that road even though I'm sure a lot of the HDB developements here are perfectly fine. I like nice facilities, surroundings, contemporary, quiet and clean living. I doubt I'll get all of this in a HDB.
Yup! Try 2 and a half decades!hedgehunter wrote:For sure this is a great place to live and there are so many benefits like the weather, shopping, food and safe environment. But does anyone else think that it get's a bit boring after a couple of years here?
