Propaganda by hybrid regime --> Top of news!
When such remarks are being made by the hybrid regime, it often indicates the opposite direction for the masses. Is approaching 7 years since his declaration of golden period. How 'golden' is it now?
In january i blogged that Cancerous GDP Growth in Singapore Has Reached Terminal Stage after the govt controlled media finally acknowledges the infestation of pawnshops & $$ lending shops in the peasant heartlands.
As if the cancer cells in Clementi are not enough, let's look at the pictures i've taken this month of the 'cancer' at nearby Jurong East central. This blogpost is my most picture heavy laden so far due to the rot. The rot in Jurong East central is worse than Clementi.
Before the pictures, something on the malls there. There are now 4 malls in Jurong East central:
After taking the pictures i walked over to Westgate for a look. Is my 2nd visit there since its opening in early december 2013. After 2 months, there are still 24 shopspaces that are still vacant/boarded up in this upmarket mall. Big Box which is another mall currently under construction will be 5th.
I consider the 24 vacancies at Westgate to be a warning on excess retail spaces in Jurong East. Majority of the locals are stretched thin on their finances. Coupled with killer rents & cheaper online stores & this combo becomes a powerful 'cocktail'.
Now let's let to the rot.
Look at the $$$ lending shop on the left. Is pitch dark for the shop interior behind the man by the door. Makes one wonder what is taking place inside the pitch blackness.
In the centre, there's a dead business. Seems like it is a curse when located close to those 'sin' business.
Look at the pawnshop to the right. Now you see what i mean by it seem like a curse located close to a 'sin' business.
Lack of demand, low demand = death of local businesses.
How can sinkies support the local economy when they are wage suppressed or underemployed or lost their jobs to cheaper foreign workers? That's why we see the rising death of businesses & more & more people scrapping by as evidenced by the rising number of $$$ lending business/pawnshops.
