S$50,000 in Singapore

As most Singaporeans have probably read, our government has donated a princely sum of S$50,000 to Haiti.


That's not even 1/6 of our dear Prime Minister's monthly pay. Lee Hsien Loong earns S$3.87 million a year, which comes up to about S$300,000 a month (taking AWS into account lah).

That's about a quarter of our MP's yearly allowance (S$216k a year).

That's a month of TT Durai's pay when he was with NKF. I can hear a Mrs Goh Chok Tong remarking that's worse than peanuts. Like sunflower seeds. Or pomegranate arils.

That's also 1/6 of what CK Tang's chairman Tang Wee Sung was willing to pay for a kidney.

That's also about 3 COEs for Category A cars in Singapore.

To me, that's way more than my annual salary. I'm poor as fuck and eat chap chye png every day.

The impermanence of sadness

Enough of the senseless soccer analogies!

What he said


From telling warped Aesop's Fables about mice that bark to spouting useless soccer analogies, Lim Swee Say makes little sense most of the time. And that's with the help of the state-owned media machine. He must be hopelessly incoherent when not being interviewed by local journalist lackeys.
