Actually we no need to say you also will feel it.
The economy has been damn jia lat since the start of 2016 and 2017 won’t be any easier
The signs are already there.
By end of the month, you will see many shop closed
Even hawker centers and eateries won’t be spared.
Even for those that managed to stay open, there will be price hikes everywhere. Everything will become ridiculously expensive but you don’t have much choices.
Many people will resort to gambling to generate more income. Some will even start to drink more.
Many will be worried and don’t know how to explain to their parents and relatives. Some will feel their pocket suddenly burned a huge hole. Many will struggle to stay afloat after this.
Many economists called this downward spiral of the economy and potentially trigger a economic crisis to our nation.
But in Singapore… we call this
Chinese New Year Only Lah! HUAT ARH!!!
