I am VERY thankful for this piece.
No matter what the world at large says about newspapers, even my better half and my parents, warn me about papers.
But I always wonder and ask...WHY?
If I am a criminal, well...I would deserve whatever perspective comes out.
If one were NOT a criminal, that's where "guilty conscience" kicks in. So..many people are struggling to make ends meet, and I come out with this?
But from a focused perspective, this article today, is meant to encourgae everyone who is not doing well. Yet. Because doing well, if you look at it from a money pov, then it is ALWAYS relative...unless the bank is concerned.
I felt like the POOREST man in Singapore, just 2 hours after this interview on Thursday/Wednesday...bacause I would see just how small my house (6,000 built in) is.
Truth is...I would have STAYED in a shoebox unit, if that is what I can afford...and enlarge my archives of collectables in a seperate warehouse...and decorate it. Because I spend time sleeping and eating at home..that's about it. I don't need space to do that.
But...I would ABSOLUTELY like a BIG HOUSE. Who will not. I just cannot afford one, without giving up a lot of things...period. Given that I may not need to sacrifice, I would..buy a BIG HOUSE.
It's simply luxury, better, and is a place to bring up a family together...with privacy for all.
But..Singapore is small...and small has its advantages as well.
Thanks to all at the ST and the Sunday Times for being accurate and for having a sense of humour...I really like the article.
