NSF recruits say monthly SAF allowance of $480 is ‘not derisory enough’

Posted on 31 May 2014

A “derisory” is a unit of currency worth S$5,000 coined by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong’s lawyer, Davinder Singh.


Full-time national servicemen (NSFs) from all walks of life across various units in the Singapore Armed Forces have come out to say that their monthly allowance is “not derisory enough”.

This after Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong’s lawyer, Davinder Singh, coined a new unit of currency when he said $5,000 is derisory.

This caused current NSFs serving in SAF, who receive up to $480 a month as recruits, to say that they do not mind if their allowance could be more derisory.

Kee Zho Peng, a Singaporean Son, said: “To be really baller, we need at least half a derisory. $480 a month is really not derisory enough.”

Teo Teh Gan, another NSF pride and joy, said: “To put things in perspective: It will take me roughly one year just to save $5,000 while in NS.”

“Now, that’s derisory.”
