Elder Singaporeans must work till we die?
« on: August 23, 2017, 01:11:27 pm »
It was interesting that our PM, in his National Day Rally speech, decided to highlight 70-year-old Teo Yoke Lan, who delivers meals on an e-bike for UberEats around the Central Business District area. PM Lee said she did this to keep herself fit and able to make a living at the same time.

Her efforts are definitely to be praised, and she deserves her moment in the spotlight. But did the PM and his Ministers miss the important point from this person? How is it that a 70 year old woman, tech savvy as she is, still have to go out and work to make a living? Retirement age was long gone, and if she wants to keep fit, she did not have to toil in a job. She could easily join any walking or running groups, or any other fitness groups to keep herself fit even at such an advanced age.

She is long past retirement age, and she should be able to live her remaining years in ease and comfort. Apparently, that won’t happen in Singapore. Instead, she became a poster lady for those who have to work past retirement age. Some things never change though. Our rich Ministers get to enjoy their lives long after they retired, but for ordinary Singaporeans, we have to convince ourselves that we have to work till we die, because that is how we keep fit.

Do Singaporeans engage in intercourse with friends? (i.e. friends with benefits)
