This festive season is also a period for more loss of votes for the hybrid regime with the deterioration of living standards as the peasants curse the hybrid regime among relatives & friends. For my mum, it is cursing the hybrid regime over healthcare hikes.
This year must have mark a new record with the state controlled press reporting that more peasants are having reunion dinner at hawker centres. A few reasons have been offered in discussions among netizens:
- hard times(financially) for peasants
- pigeon hole dwellings too small for reunion dinners
- restaurants time limit of 1.5 hrs
12pm - 1am
Over in Johor, Malaysia, the cost of having reunion dinner outside is very affordable for sinkie peasants. Difficult part is travelling & the jam. Above is an advertisement from a malaysian newspaper. Entry price per person start from S$16. That's cheaper than a buffet dinner on a normal weekday in any SG eatery.
It also shows how costly the prices are in those shopping malls food courts in Sillypore. Suppressed wages in 1st world cost lof living SG. Now that more peasants are downgrading from restaurants to hawker centres, it clearly shows diminished purchasing power.
Speaking of hawker centres, the intention of the hybrid regime to turn a few hawker centres to be managed by non-profit organizations or cooperatives is sinister. A sinister intent to start small in their lust for more $$$.
