In every mail box across the Singapore, lucky Singaporeans receive a gift from their caring govt - the Progress Package. The cash will come in on 1 May 2006. The progress package goes out to every single person of voting age, whether you are a millionaire or pauper. Coincidentally, I heard the elections will also be in May 2006.
Some cynics pointed out that the govt during the NKF saga said it is unable to help kidney patients because it has limited funds, yet it is able to give out hundreds of millions in cash handouts just before the elections. To these cynics, I would like to tell them that this govt cares about everyone above 21 years of age not just kidney patients.
For myself I'm going to put the money to good use - I plan to use the package to get an high end MP3 player or one of those fancy digital cameras. I guess election day will be a great day to shop because Courts, Harvey Norman, Best Denki will have big "Progress" discount sales in case Singaporeans don't know what to do with their money. Singaporeans really have power ....buying power!
