My Humble House

Posted in Uncategorized on May 31, 2011 by crystalake

In Esplanade My Humble House, the bowl and plate are gigantic, and the food very little. That is why you are able to complete everything in a 9 course meal etc. If you go at nights, don’t sit near the extreme left end as there are some flashing lights there from outside which are very distracting.

Any fruits n vege are good for health. Fruits n vege are mother nature products to cure all diseases. Lady finger has alot of “gel'” which is good to reduce sugar in the blood. Choose the soft type, that is the young one. Cut two or three stalks into samll pieces n put them in a small container or a jug. Add in hot water and wait for about an hour then pour out the water plus the gel n drink. Can always refill drink many time. It is NOT a medicine but a very safe way to reduce blood sugar, good for diabete. NO SIDE EFFECT.

Cost of living

Posted in Uncategorized on May 30, 2011 by crystalake

High food cost
High transport cost – so crowded being squeezed at peak hours, if you drive then heavy congestion or jams.
High tertiary education cost – cuts into your meagre savings and worse of all make your children graduate with debts to pay even before finding a job.
High medical bills – its in mind of every elderly : can die but cannot be sick.
Utility bills – yes the high oil price will take the blame. easily two thrids of what you pay at the kiosk goes into taxes, which explains why some country can have cheap petrol price.
We are being stretch to the limit, our family time with our children and spouse greatly reduced, Your wife has been asked to come out to work and then be eligible to those levy and tax rebates, your physical and mental health and reserve has also been stretch to the max.
go back to 90s.. whereby u need a 20% downpayment for cars.. tell me.. a middle income person will not buy a car.. now every ah pig ah dog also can own a car becoz they can even get cash back by driving!.. thats insanity.

same goes to housing although there are recent cooling measures but from the start these pple r kinda “cash rich” becoz they made money from stocks and they can afford to throw money into downpayments.
