Not I say one. It’s our NTUC’s secretary-general, Mr Lim Swee Say.
Giving some financial advice at the seminar, Mr Lim said: “Every month, when I receive my CPF statement, I feel so rich and the best part is, I know the CPF money won’t run away. CPF will still be around for a long, long time to come… Not only is it earning good interest, my capital is protected.”
I would like to once again remind Mr Lim that the Ministers in Singapore are one of the highest paid in the world. In fact, his US$1.06 million annual salary makes George W. Bush’s US$400,000 salary looks like peanuts. No wonder he feels so rich after reading his CPF statement.
And since we are in a recession, maybe it’s time to re-look into our minister’s salary. Especially when one of our minister feels rich after reading his CPF statement.
