    Irrelevant comparison unless you are Malaysians/Singaporeans who earn SGD but live in Malaysia.

    Meanwhile, my ringgit or some said shringgit accounts continue to yield at least 10 times more interest return than a SGD account. Interest rate in Singapore is around 0.1% - 0.4% per annum.. http://www.moneysmart.sg/fixed-deposit

    Why compare little things like grocery when the loss in ROI of money keep in the bank is so much more in SGD.

    Simple question - Given the same digit, you wanna retire with SGD in Singapore or MYR in Malaysia.... ??

    It would be very interesting if I can consistently get 10% ROI in my small nest...more often than not its like betw 6-9% only. Mehtink i fare better than so many of those 'financial advisors' out there who just blur blur recommend possibly to meet their monthly sales quota?)

    United will pay a huge price. .. money and irrecoverable brand damage.

    United Airlines reached a settlement with the passenger who was violently dragged off a flight earlier this month. David Dao's lawyers announced the deal on Thursday. The amount of the settlement was not disclosed under the terms of the agreement.

    Wow !! For him to stop there and keep his mouth shut, must be freaking serious amount of money...

    I went to USA, Wow, I saw English speaking peoples working in all types of professions, doctors, lecturers, police, clerks, janitor, waitress, rubbish truck driver, … Some homeless.

    In San Francisco, I saw Chinese men and women working as janitor in airport toilets, immigration officers, cleaner at subway station, customer service at information counter, cashier in Macy, pharmacists, lecturers, … If their ancestors are still alive, would they feel proud and good that finally their offspring have “better future “ than back in China ?

    Just like some english-speaking "neither-here-nor-there" originally from here but later adopted by a place built by convicts and convicts descendants..

    Some of this pathetic tom, dick and matt from here tried whole life to sneak into such place, never mind if they have to mow the lawn or drive uber just to earn extra few bucks for a living over there... a bit like the foreign labours here who brag to their countrymen that they are living in a place more advance than their birthplace without revealing they are just the cheap labour for the locals... ..
