Reason 0034 : Expensive Nursing Homes

Health Minister Khaw Boon Wan had suggested that elderly Singaporeans might want to consider staying at nursing homes across the Causeway in Johor, Malaysia where it is much cheaper.

http://www.straitstimes.com/Breaking%2BNews/Singapore/Story/STIStory_336540.html
http://www.straitstimes.com/vgn-ext-templating/v/index.jsp?vgnextoid=f44974fcc2c5f110VgnVCM100000430a0a0aRCRD&vgnextchannel=cf70758920e39010VgnVCM1000000a35010aRCRD

It cannot be denied what he had said makes sense in light of the fact that healthcare in Singapore is expensive and costs are likely to increase in the future and also that healthcare is cheaper in our neighbouring countries.

However, if you look at the issue in another way, it is heartbreaking to see that the people who have toiled and shed blood, tears, and sweat to build Singapore, from a swampy jungle to a bustling city today, have difficulty getting elderly healthcare in their very own country in their golden years.

It simply boggles the mind to think that we are able to set aside huge amounts of money for events such as the Youth Olympics, Integrated Resort, and the F1 Race and also come up with the manpower and expertise to conceptualise, plan, and execute these projects but yet we have difficulty finding a solution that allows our elderly to be cared for here?

Mr Khaw said that the suggestion was aimed at middle-income families who need to pay for the care themselves and that for most Singaporeans, visiting a relative in a Johor Baru nursing home would not pose significant difficulties. It gives them choice, he said.

However, what kind of a choice is this when for instance the middle-income class, who are already sandwiched between providing for their children and elderly parents, cannot afford nursing homes in Singapore but yet require the services of one?

They do not have much of a choice here as it has effectively already been made for them. It is either one spouse quits his/her job to take care of the parents (not likely due to high household expenses), or do without the services of a nursing home (not likely as they need to work and the elderly need care). Hence, the only solution here are cheaper nursing homes.

This said, given a choice, who wants to travel to Johor every weekend to the nursing home? You have to brave the long drive as well as the long traffic jams at the Causeway, both to and from Johor, week after week.

Have we really exhausted all the possible avenues of caring for our elderly in Singapore? I do not think so. With our strong Singapore work ethic, resourcefulness, and reserves, there is nothing we cannot do if we put our mind to it.

hey you missed out the number one reason to hate "sillypore". let me write it for you.

Reason 0001: LOSERS LIKE YOURSELF WHO CONSTANTLY WHINE ABOUT SINGAPORE LIKE A USELESS BITCH(without contributing back) and expect it to miraculously change overnight to suit your own personal needs because Singapore owes you a living (sarcasm intended). Seriously you're pathetic.

Wendy said...

If you hate Singapore so much why don't you just leave? Damn, you are one spoilt brat who doesn't appreciate what he has. I agree with the previous commenter. GTFO of Singapore 'cause we sure as hell don't want you.

Eh, this blog has been here for 2 years. How come you are still in Singapore whining ah?

Anyway, I can help you with another 3 reasons.
"Retards who complain."
"Fools who whine all the time."
"Unappreciative morons"

Hey! Sounds like a certain someone!

1001 reasons why you hate sg ? Lets see if you really can state 1001 reasons then. if not gtfo of singapore. singapore doesnt need losers like you to spoil our reputation. go migrate or something.

Wow, reading this blog makes me feel really afraid of people. I've been reading the comments and cannot find many entries with a civil, non-abusive discussion.

The person writing this blog is just expressing his opinions, no? People who CHOOSE to read it can agree or disagree, or have no opinion, if it suits them. Why the necessity to respond with hatred and vulgarities? Why respond by wishing for the person to die, to be injured, to be unhappy, by calling the person pathetic or whatever other names?

If reading this blog makes you angry, don't read it. Or is it just a way to direct pent-up rage towards someone who can't strike back at you?

The comments on this blog would at least be interesting if someone could disagree with the entries in a reasonable manner. Too bad "bitch", "fuck you" and "get out of here" are the only ways people know how to respond.

I guess the blogger has already left singapore... Not seeing any new posts after this one..

To be frank, I am getting to dislike singapore in some ways that the blogger has pointed out. I am in my thirties, I got a job, earning 3-4k a month. But I'm still unsatisfied. I hope to move to another developing country with my Vietnamese wife leading a better life. Just waiting for an opportunity. Best of luck to all.

Finally, someone who despise Singaporeans just as much as i do.
Frankly, you guys are the ones who provoke others to hate you.
Generally, all Singaporeans I have met while commencing my studies overseas have the same attributes.
1.Kia su
2.LOVE TO BRAG
3.Think they are better than everyone else.
4.Brag about self
5.Brag about country
6.Brag about self and country
7.No respect to others

Seriously? An epitome of lack of education.

THERE IS NO WAY I WILL EVER EDUCATE MY CHILDREN IN SINGAPORE.

Anonymous said...

@Anonymous(comment after Mini Women); You probably won't see this, but if you do or others do, please listen. I'm sorry you've met such people; however, I'm sure they are only a small minority. Yes, there are some people who only care about themselves, but there are many others in other countries who are like that as well; if not in a larger percentage. Come back to Singapore some time; for a short while, if you're hesitant. I'm sure you'll find we are much more than the 7 descriptions you have used.

After being here 11 years... I would change the name from I hate singapore to singaporeans!

The people here are what makes this country unliveable, they are everything this blog has posted and only getting worse. With wealth comes attitude.

All the angry responses I can assure you are from Singaporeans. Another display of lack of respect.

What really irks me is that this country is funded by foreigners. Most work for foreign firms. How easily these stupid people forget where the paymaster comes from. It will be quite a laugh when these regional HQs shift to China over the coming years, and these over-paid, un-educatated, disrespectful pathetic race lose everything.

So to all the locals with their angry local responses... I have a local one for you... go die lah!

Good that you got out of Singapore i.e. if you did! ^^

I'm so pissed I just have to post a comment on this to jerk some of you naive people out of your silly fantasies. I'm really surprised at how many people actually agree with the writer. I think that every country has its perks and its cons. No government and no country is perfect with perfect citizens with perfect qualities. It appears that you live in a world that you expect every single person to be nice and friendly to you. You choose to be hard and specific with people. Wake up dude!!!!!! Let's face reality. A utopian society does not exist. I think the Singapore government has done a GREAT job in taking care of our citizens. There's no way you can probably starve or die untreated. We're safe, the government responds to our needs and demands, and we have every facility just five minutes away anywhere! The government are taking steps to make our life better, to spoonfeed our young generations by cutting exams etc due to complaints. Of course there are disadvantages like the emergence of strawberry generation. But isn't this what you people wanted and asked for?! It's ridiculous how people expect the government to clear the mess they create. And the government actually do. Is the government not responding to our grievances? No! You can dig into any issue. The housing problem, the education system problem, the mrt problem, the list goes on for you picky people. Compare it with other countries, I think Singapore is heaven already. Hong Kong doesn't care whether people has even a house to live in? Look how many percentage of houses are being taken charge of by the private sectors. Other countries have mrt breakdowns often and you certainly do not hear their people complaining! This is not a government's problem. This is a personal problem. I think that being a citizen of Singapore, Singapore has given us a lot. Singapore certainly gives you internet but you used it to post nasty things huh. Look at North Korea. I know we all live with the asian mentality to compare ourselves with the BEST, not the worst. But it's time we must be satisfied with what we have already. You can't have everything in the world. Life will be too tiring pursuing all the things other people have! We the citizens defines what Singapore is. If Singapore citizens do not even love Singapore or want to change Singapore for the better, who will? Your other better countries peoples?? LOL wake up. Okay this is my climax: DO YOU THINK OTHER COUNTRIES WILL WELCOME YOU AND BREASTFEED YOU? No, they don't give a damn about you. You die even better because you will help solve the overpopulation problem, if they have

Replying to one Anonymous, it appears that the better thing than Singapore's 'racist, selfish, unkind, rude and arrogant people' is beautiful beaches.

The fact that Singaporeans have so much time to be on their fuckin iphones and ipads even at a 3 star Michelin start restaurant paying thousands for their meals, shows how they will be another China -- who they criticize and belittle -- even though a majority are from there! What a bunch of hypocrites. You will never have a culture because you depend on a history of 50 years that will never get you anywhere compared to the millenia of history that every other Asian country has had to suffer. You have no culture, but excess of capital. It will work for the next 100 years on the idiots who buy (literally) into the system, but give it another 200 years, and let's see what happens

I'm sorry what "blood and toil" have Singaporeans gone through? They can come out of their national university with below-par grades and never have to deal with unemployment because their government is smart enough to save them from their toils.... You've got to be kidding if you ever think they have had to go through ANY blood and toil.

And let me set is straight. I lived in SG for 4 years, and I'm in a much better place where money could never buy the kind of education I'm getting right now.

I am Singaporean, and while I do agree that our country does have lots of problems, that doesn't make it any different from other countries who have their own problems. Here's a solution to all the reasons why you hate Singapore: if you don't like it here, THEN GO BACK TO YOUR COUNTRY AND NEVER COME BACK. WE DON'T WANT YOU HERE ANYWAY.

I don't really like Singapore's education system. It's too stressful even when compared to many countries I suppose. I'm a teenager, I don't like how my o level score limits my choice of courses in poly. I don't like how competition with other teenagers to get the cut off point for courses. This leads to young people being unhappy, having sufferings now and in the future. A LOT of potential talents are also lost in the respective fields. The government is destroying dreams instead of creating them! Even in primary schools and secondary schools, results are seem as EVERYTHING. It stops kids and teenagers from developing their interest in an other areas!! It kills creativity. Streaming makes the students who are less capable and less smart(not good in studies) even harder to climb up the social ladder. They are also being frown upon. There's always this celling that makes people's life harder to get to a better social position. If I were born in a rich family, I would already left this country and study, do what I like. I'm tired of this place and its people. There are nicer things out there to explore... I figured that being an adult here would suck as well. Working long hours with salaries to pay expensive expenses and to pay COE, car loan etc. Flats are getting so expensive... CPF is useful but can only withdraw monthly when a person is quite old and there's amount can't be taken out... Being old is seen as burden and so on. Life sucks so much...

- This comment really appeals to me, he/she is afraid of people by the hostile replies from majority of commenters, I too share that sentiment. Those replies along the line of 'GTFO' and 'Go and die' does not give room for debate at all, if these replies are made by Singaporeans, it only shows that we're so afraid to prove our points that declaration of our hurtful intents is the only way to 'win' the argument. My friends, using those abusive comments does not WIN you the argument, back up your replies with at least some basic respect and context, a harsh and crude dismissal would only make you look like the ill-mannered brats he describes. I'm not taking sides just so you know, I'm a Singaporean myself; in conclusion, just be more open minded and recognize problems as problems, Ignorance is deadly.

Keep the nonsense nationalism. If you were living in my country I would love it when you expressed your views on the things that suck because you would be another citizen trying to improve things by pointing out the flaws.
Of course in Asia is different: you will always be a foreigner and have less or no rights, and if you point out something that is wrong you will get the same answer: If you don't like get out (maybe they like?). The truth is Asian people in general can't handle criticism at all in part because they are brainwashed by their governments and take country criticism as a personal attack.
