With inflation and rising costs of living, Singaporean’s dreams seem harder to reach.
Even DINKS like us (Duo Income with No KidS) possessing a good degree can no longer afford a car and probably taxi rides in the near future.
First, high COE price is dashing our dreams to enjoy the flexibility, freedom and impromptu escapes to inaccessible but wondrous places around Singapore.
Then, increasing taxi fares limit us to places accessible via bus, MRT and bicycle. All these changes were announced and to be implemented in less than a month. No one cares about the public anymore.
This simply means that young educated Singaporeans can no longer afford a car (and taxi rides). Sigh, I do hope that our dream to own a condominium in the future will not be too far fetched with all the various “market cooling measures”.
It’s a depressing news for those who worked hard and aspire for these little luxuries in their lifestyle. Boo.
