for a proper risk-return, 3% is indeed too little ROI if u referring to loanshark mah... lol
mine p2p is has safeguards, more or less has protected capital features, hence only 3% per month.

i have less protected risk-returns p2p that gives 16% per month... less protections though :(

I read that in China many P2P sites have gg liao .....

the capital protected features of the 3% P2P sounds interesting - so the risk is mainly counter-party risk?  ie. the risk of the platform going bankrupt or run-road?

do you know the names of the parties that you are lending to?  assume that these are unrated names otherwise they would have gone through the normal capital market channels to raise funds?

behind my other nearby flats are also like that too. I guess the family is very friendly with the neighbors so that neighbor don't complaint about it especially those staying ground floor.

Do our part for Singapore !

So that our MPs have no excuses ...  sibeh tulan when i see Baey Yam Keng with his flimsy excuse  >:(

I just realise I have this illness I don't know if it's called a self fulfilling cynicism.

When people are extremely good to me for no reasons and intrude all my personal spaces and attempt to "take care" of me, give too much attention to me, I feel immensely anxious and I tend to pick up some cues and interpret that they might try to harm me (maybe due to my younger past experience). Sometimes I get a panic attack. Therefore I tend to flee. It is only later part when I observe with a distance that I find out that they were harmless n probably were really good and didn't have any other intentions.

And I also realised that people I'm closer association with are people who are unsupportive , unappreciative, unhelpful, and uncaring that makes me feel really safe and at home. Because I'm able to support and appreciate and help myself. Or people who are supportive, helpful, and caring sparingly and sometimes from a distance or infrequently giving me personal space.

I lost someone good again by running away  :(

I tthink I hv to be independent my whole life because I only keep undependable ppl in my life or ppl who are dependable sparingly because the dependable people scares me and I don't know what they want from me.

Sounds like detached with mild-medium bipolar personality.

Stick to virtual friends where you can define the sandbox or set boundaries whereupon to play.  Virtual friends can't harm you if you maintain anonymity or don't meet.

If you'd like to test boundaries can find those 闪友 ...

https://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/courts-crime/police-nab-162-people-in-23-day-operation-targeting-online-vice-syndicates

In an operation that spanned 23 days, 162 people - 157 women and five men aged between 19 and 48 - were arrested for their suspected involvement in vice-related activities.

The police said in a statement on Saturday (Aug 11) that the operation ended on Tuesday. Officers from the Criminal Investigation Department and six Police Land Divisions carried out coordinated raids on online vice syndicates at multiple locations across Singapore.

These included condominiums, hotels and residential units in Geylang, Jalan Sultan, Cavenagh Road as well as Balestier Road.

Laptops and mobile phones were seized during the operation and investigations are currently ongoing.
The police added in their statement that the use of Housing Board flats for vice purposes is strictly prohibited and flat owners may face financial penalties or compulsory acquisition of their flat if they were found to be involved in the flat's misuse.

On flat owners who rent out their units, the police said: "Flat owners play an important role in preventing vice in heartlands, and are reminded to conduct regular checks on their tenants to prevent vice activities from proliferating in residential estates."

"Tenants who are found to be involved in the misuse of the flat will not be allowed to rent an HDB flat for five years."


Flat owners who knowingly rent their places for vice-related activities can be jailed for up to three years' or face a fine of up to $3,000, or face both punishments. Repeat offenders can be sentenced to jail for up to five years, fined up to $5,000 or both.






I don't see how they are going to ban transients for their past transgressions?!!! ::)

Gaslighting:

Gaslighting is a tactic in which a person or entity, in order to gain more power, makes a victim question their reality. It works much better than you may think. Anyone is susceptible to gaslighting, and it is a common technique of abusers, dictators, narcissists, and cult leaders. It is done slowly, so the victim doesn't realize how much they've been brainwashed. For example, in the movie Gaslight (1944), a man manipulates his wife to the point where she thinks she is losing her mind.


People who gaslight typically use the following techniques: 

1. They tell blatant lies.

You know it's an outright lie. Yet they are telling you this lie with a straight face. Why are they so blatant? Because they're setting up a precedent. Once they tell you a huge lie, you're not sure if anything they say is true. Keeping you unsteady and off-kilter is the goal.

2. They deny they ever said something, even though you have proof.

You know they said they would do something; you know you heard it. But they out and out deny it. It makes you start questioning your reality—maybe they never said that thing. And the more they do this, the more you question your reality and start accepting theirs.

3. They use what is near and dear to you as ammunition.

They know how important your kids are to you, and they know how important your identity is to you. So those may be one of the first things they attack. If you have kids, they tell you that you should not have had those children. They will tell you'd be a worthy person if only you didn't have a long list of negative traits. They attack the foundation of your being.

4. They wear you down over time.

This is one of the insidious things about gaslighting—it is done gradually, over time. A lie here, a lie there, a snide comment every so often...and then it starts ramping up. Even the brightest, most self-aware people can be sucked into gaslighting—it is that effective. It's the "frog in the frying pan" analogy: The heat is turned up slowly, so the frog never realizes what's happening to it.

5. Their actions do not match their words.

When dealing with a person or entity that gaslights, look at what they are doing rather than what they are saying. What they are saying means nothing; it is just talk. What they are doing is the issue.

6. They throw in positive reinforcement to confuse you.

This person or entity that is cutting you down, telling you that you don't have value, is now praising you for something you did. This adds an additional sense of uneasiness. You think, "Well maybe they aren't so bad." Yes, they are. This is a calculated attempt to keep you off-kilter—and again, to question your reality. Also look at what you were praised for; it is probably something that served the gaslighter.

7. They know confusion weakens people.

Gaslighters know that people like having a sense of stability and normalcy. Their goal is to uproot this and make you constantly question everything. And humans' natural tendency is to look to the person or entity that will help you feel more stable—and that happens to be the gaslighter. 

8. They project.

They are a drug user or a cheater, yet they are constantly accusing you of that. This is done so often that you start trying to defend yourself, and are distracted from the gaslighter's own behavior.

9. They try to align people against you.

Gaslighters are masters at manipulating and finding the people they know will stand by them no matter what—and they use these people against you. They will make comments such as, "This person knows that you're not right," or "This person knows you're useless too." Keep in mind it does not mean that these people actually said these things. A gaslighter is a constant liar. When the gaslighter uses this tactic it makes you feel like you don't know who to trust or turn to—and that leads you right back to the gaslighter. And that's exactly what they want: Isolation gives them more control

10. They tell you or others that you are crazy.

This is one of the most effective tools of the gaslighter, because it's dismissive. The gaslighter knows if they question your sanity, people will not believe you when you tell them the gaslighter is abusive or out-of-control. It's a master technique. 

11. They tell you everyone else is a liar.

By telling you that everyone else (your family, the media) is a liar, it again makes you question your reality. You've never known someone with the audacity to do this, so they must be telling the truth, right? No. It's a manipulation technique. It makes people turn to the gaslighter for the "correct" information—which isn't correct information at all.

The more you are aware of these techniques, the quicker you can identify them and avoid falling into the gaslighter's trap.
