City of Surcharge

I wonder is this deja vu or just coincidence, MacDonald Delivery Service (MDS) surcharge is now $3, i can remember it is only $2 last month.

So whats next? More things to come. Here are some of things i predict will hit us soon. Deja vu?

1. Petrol and diesel price.
2. Water tax (currently 30%)
3. Electricity Tariff (currently 21.38¢/kWh for domestic)
4. Refuse Removal (currently $5.88 on my last bill)
5. MRT and Bus fares.
6. TV license (currently $110 for color tv)

I just found something very interesting with Google. Here are the electricity tariff that keeps increasing year after year.

Electricity tariff:

2002 15.02¢/kWh
2005 16.73¢/kWh
2006 21.15¢/kWh
Oct 2007 21.38¢/kWh

A complete list can be found here.

If you don't pay your utility bill promptly, you will be "invited" to join PAY-AS-YOU-USE’Metering Scheme. In Singapore there is no welfare, no charity for the poor, you don't pay, you don't get water and electricity.
