Checked my account today morning and discovered extra amount. No, the bank didn’t make a mistake by putting in extra money into my account. Its the first installment in the GST credits saga.

But i only got to see the money for a moment before the bulk of it was used to pay bills. Some of which have been outstanding.

Unlike the well-to-do and rich, most ordinary Singaporeans who toil day in & day out to make ends meet and facing price increases will only get to see their GST credits for awhile before it goes to paying-off bills, loans, etc, etc, etc.
