Just want to vent out my anger for awhile.
Few days ago, during lunch, my colleagues and I were discussing on BTO and the HDB grants etc.
Amongst us, is an Indonesian-chinese guy born in Indo, but grew up here in Spore and even served NS. He got married to a Pinoy whom he met here, who is now a PR already. He asked me how much grant I got from the government and I questioned him the same.
So, here it goes.
NOT BORN IN SPORE, WIFE IS A PR, AND THEY GOT $45K ADDITIONAL HOUSING GRANT.
I CAN PAY OFF MY 10% HOME DOWNPAYMENT LA SIA! KITA YNG MEMBESAR KAT SINI, KEJE MCM NAK RAK, DAPAT SIKIT JE!
I was really damn annoyed cos my fiance and I only got a pathetic $15k. That’s like even less than half of his! I know there is a quota or a certain gross salary what la, but still?! If like that, might as well I go for a chapalang job before applying a house so that the gomen can give me the same amount also kan?!
