FarBird's take on spike of Singapore's COE prices in April 2010

For those whom don't yet already know of Singapore's method of issuing new car registrations, please have a read at Wikipedia's entry on COE.

Ok, now listen to my take on why the COE went up so sharply in early April 2010.

The COE price of the different classes of vehicles are determined by a quota bidding system.

This means that if there are 100 vehicles that got de-registered last month, there will be 100 new COEs up for grabs in the upcoming bid. If 200 potential car owners cast their bid for the COE, the price of the COE will be determined by the 100th decremental bid price casted.

Outrageous Parking Charges in Singapore

In the name of rising COE, which rose to S$34,001 just 3 weeks ago, for the purchase of a car of capacity 1600cc and below, this implied of the situation that was to follow..

Rising petrol, rising parking charges, etc etc... ahhhhh....


This was shown to me today.

A friend incurred this amount of parking at a carpark at Alexandra Road area.

In the first place, can the ERP cashcard take up to $750 top-up?

Mind Blowing Experience

I met a lady whom refused to tell me her real name.
Instead she tells me she wants me to known by her nickname "Mind".

I know she is hinting me to "mind my own business".

So I tell her I, too, want to be known by a nickname.

I tell her to address me as "Experience"..

The summary of our acquaintance session?

Confessions of a Former Christian

I saw this video on Youtube..
I felt the urgent need to share it with everyone.

I felt like laughing at this person's perspective of his previous chosen religion.
And at the same time, I know this video is going to agitate many people.

Many will want to argue their point....  
until the cows come home or pigs start flying [ whichever comes first ]

Just enjoy the video.. with an open mind.
