Wuhan virus: Look on the bright side

So DBS, our biggest bank, has lowered its 2020 GDP growth forecast for Singapore by 28% from 1.4% previously to 0.9% because of a drop of 1m tourist arrivals for every three months Singapore’s travel ban on Chinese passport holders continues. (Related post: S$ tanks as GDP forecasts slashed)


Wuhan virus: Why investors are not panicking

——————————————————————

Time to look on the bright side.

Electricity tariffs will drop because oil prices have fallen from around US$65 to below US$55. China is not buying oil. Related post: Why MSM no kanna POFMA for spreading fake news?

Less crowds when going to supermarkets. The anti-PAP cybernut hoarders got to eat up their stocks of rice, instant noodles and toilet paper. They also have no spare money to spend on other groceries after spending hundreds if not thousands of $ on rice, instant noodles and toilet paper.

Sure to have sales for luxury goods because tourists are not coming.

I’m seeing ads offering discounts for fine dining and stuff like suckling pig.

Sure got more comedy shows as Goh Meng Seng and Tan Kin Lian attack PAP govt:Clowns of Singapore.

No GST rise this yr: Double confirm: No GST rise this yr.

More goodies even if it’s more of Ownself pay ownself: it’s our money PAP govt is using tobribe lessen the pain of a slowing economy in an election yr.

Anti-PAP types should be cheering as if the economy suffers badly, more people will vote against the PAP: Anti-PAP activists loi hei wish.

  • Bow your head in humility:

    Birth, life, death are miracles.
    The senses of sight, touch, taste, smell, hearing, are miracles.
    The uniqueness of every individual is a mind boggling miracle.
    The different colours and looks of people are miraculous.
    The animals and fishes and fruits and trees and flora and fauna are miracles.
    The sun and the moon and stars, the sea and rivers and mountains, and the earth wind and fire are miracles.
    Sadness and happiness, good and bad luck, good and ill health mentally or physically, beauty and ugliness are complexities.
    Anger, greed, intolerance, arrogance, pride, cruelty, mad sadists, some are enjoying it, some are regretting it, versus compassion, tolerance, understanding, the good hearted, are complicated complex characteristics which are realities.
    The sun rises and sets.
    Falling asleep, eating and drinking, and clearing the waste from our bodies are must-dos and cannot be avoided.
    We carry the smelly waste and the urine in our body wherever we go, yet we use sweet smelling perfumes on our body.
    The germs that attack our bodies are complexities.
    The internal organs in our bodies are miracles in terms of its highly complex functions.
    The mind is a complete complex miracle.
    Intelligence and stupidness are subjective.
    What is the real true measurement of intelligence and dumbness, no accurate yardstick for this.
    A stupid person has peace of mind and a seemingly smart person can be depressed.
    A rich man with the Midas touch is unhappy and the poor man enjoys a good night sleep every night.
    Earthquakes, fires, haze, floods, tsunamis, volcano eruptions, strong winds, huge waves, accidents just happen unexplained.
    Dictators, authoritarianism, democracy, good and bad leaders, that’s your luck on your location.
    Time will never end, how we fit in today or later or after we leave this temporary sojourn on planet earth is a complex question.
    Coronavirus is something new, unexplained.
    There is a-lot of guessworks going on, a-lot of ifs and buts, and nothing definite and conclusive and explainable like what our complex existence is really all about.
    Some things are simply beyond us.
    Start thinking and build up awareness of your fragility.
    Think deeply of the complexities of existence.
    We are all on a journey which is a miracle.
    Is there someone who could explain these complexities and miracles of life.
    Whatever you conceive him to be, let’s humbly bow our heads and beg and pray to him for help.
    Do what we could and the best we could and must do but recognise that we are of limited ability.
    He is the author and administrator of everything, the controller of time, the controller of pain and excitement, negotiate with him.
    We are no match to argue with him, only he can do the miraculous.

  • Clown Public Enemy No 1.:

    The biggest clown is right here making fun of Sinkies and this country at this time of calamity for just 50-cent.

    The real greedy clowns got millions.

    The poor opposition clowns have been unfairly clowned upon by sycophantic Dumbo clown like this one that does blow jobs for greedy clowns for token sum.

    It is Dumbo clown like this one, who thinks highly of itself, helped the greedy clowns to make this place shitty for everyone.

    Without Dumbo clowns like this one, spreading plagarised high falutin falsehoods and lies, there will not be propaganda voice for for real greedy clowns, propping up the greedy autocratic regime.

    Amen Bro,

    In the Beginning i.e “TIME”

    He Created the Heavens i.e. “SPACE”

    and…He created the Earth and all Living things i.e “MATTER”

    Men with their PUNY BRAINS are still trying to figure it out on “Time-Space & Matter”

    When He instructed the 1st verse of The Bible to be written at the Beginning of men’s Knowledge of his surroundings

    Long before Einstein & Tesla and the Brilliance of Man Existed

  • Sgreans 3rd World:

    1st worlds are coincidentally all Democracies.

    But Singapore is on paper a democracy only.
    It’s people are said by a well known professor as being 3rd world.

    Sgreans live in the world’s most expensive city paying world highest salaries to govt leaders. Costs of living keep raising . Gst, taxes, coe, overpriced pigeonholes, electric and water tariffs skyrocket again and again and again.

    Yet, they are so dumb they never DEMAND higher standard of living from coffeeshops, public toilets and foodcourts.

    Cronies running these earn too much money but they never make the coffeeshops and hawker centers first world hygiene clean.

    These cronies must be destroyed and skinned alive metaphorically speaking.

  • REGIME CHANGE is the solution:

    Correct. I am looking at the bight side. The Wuhan virus exposed stupidity and incompetence – “wear a mask only if you are sick”, “there is no proof the virus is airborne” (an infected person sneezes without wearing a mask and the virus is airborne). “WHO advised not to wear a mask.” (Only applies to big countries with low population density)

    The Wuhan virus provided another compelling reason for REGIME CHANGE.

  • PAP mandate strong:

    Good guess but way off the mark. Plus u think too much.

    “PAP mandate strong” is based on the fact that if you move around whether PAP wards or opposition wards , people wearing mask vs people dont wear masks is like 1 : 25 ( conservatively ).

    They say dollar notes carry as much germs as the sole of your shoes,on average.

    But no one seems to shun $ away as much as they shun medical workers who is not in as close a range than the dollar bills in their wallets or pockets?

    So,the RICH N POWERFUL WHO TREASURE THEIR LIVES so much may want to EMPTY THEIR WALLETS N POCKETS N DONATE THEIR MONEY TO THE POOR.
    Of course,credit cards may carry germs too…
