If not, Singaporeans might take life for granted.
Singaporeans from all walks of life, even those from the 70 percent, are nodding their heads and looking thoughtful at what is to come.
This after Singapore is set to increase the overall cost of living by 30 percent to raise awareness of the importance of life, as the only way to know something is important is if it is expensive.
One Singaporean, Bu Yao Ming, said: “Sometimes Singaporeans take life for granted. It is good to remind them that life is important and the only way to draw their attention to it is to increase the overall cost of living.”
“If the price goes up, the importance goes up as well.”
“The greater the pinch, the higher up the priority list.”
Other locals said there is nothing wrong with increasing or decreasing prices as and when one feels like it.
Another local, Mai Huan Loh, said: “They can increase the price of PAP membership and still no one will care.”

They agree they should sit in one corner at home to maintain quality of life.
Singaporeans from all walks of life, who are running on the tradmill of life that is getting increasingly faster, are apologetic that the high cost of living they are experiencing is their own fault.
This after Defence Minister, Ng Eng Hen, said recently that higher aspirations of Singaporeans has led to higer cost of living.
One Singaporean, Mei You Qian, said: “Ya, I’m sure I’m responsible for pushing up the cost of rental that brings in more money for rent-seeking capitalists. And it is my fault that I let in so many foreigners into this country.”
Other locals also agree they have a hand in lowering their own costs.
Jiang Dao Li, another Singaporean, said: “Ya, there are many ways for Singaporeans to lower their cost of living. One way is to avoid buying an HDB flat. Another way is to not buy a car. And try not to get married. And eat two meals a day.”
“And don’t go out. And don’t make friends.”

They should pay themselves more to cope with inflation.
Singaporeans from all walks of life who earn a pittance are deeply saddened by news that Singapore has just been ranked the number one most expensive city on planet Earth.
They said their source of sadness stems from the fact that the high cost of living here has finally caught up with ministers’ salaries and they are worried that office holders will not have enough.
Mei You Qian, a local, said: “Poor ministers, now how can they buy many things with only a few million dollars?”
However, other locals interviewed said they finally understood why high salaries for ministers has all along been justified.
One Singaporean, Lin Na Beh, said: “Ohhh… They were paying themselves a lot because they were planning ahead for this day to happen where Singapore is ranked the most expensive city.”
“I guess it is time to plan ahead again for the future.”
