erm.. i get nothing?? lolx mind sharing wats cpf and gst?

Marc said...

CPF is central provident fund? U r not Singaporean is it? Becuz if u r, u shd know. GST is government service tax. So the government is giving back to Singaporeans different amounts of money to lighten our load becuz our GST increased to 7% last year.

So far Singapore government has always been allocating "shares" to us when there is surplus in their funds.

Singapore welfare mah.

JSlogy said...

HAHAH. If you are telling the government, I want the whole reserve they have. LOL

Marc said...

If can get the whole reserve, we 50%-50% ok? haha. Can last more than 10 generations. Singapore has trillions of reserves.

Anonymous said...

it seems the world is getting 750 but i got 600. is there anything wrong with me and i served 2 years in the army too!

maybe they have made a mistake. i should call them!

JSlogy said...

haha. I dont mind. HAHAHA. More than 10 generations may be possible too. LOL

Marc said...

anonymous, the amt is dependant also on other criteria like the type of house u stay in. I think u shd b able to see all the criterias on the CPF website?

jslogy, who minds? haha

JSlogy said...
