Babies Babies Where are You?

SM Goh's speech, Sunday 20th Aug on, guess what? Babies shortage in Singapore

Drawing from his personal experience, Mr Goh said, "My wife and I are fortunate that our son and daughter are not DINKs. They do not have a double income. My daughter is not working; my daughter-in-law is also not working, so no double income. They have three children each, which means my wife and I have six grandchildren - and they are all granddaughters. And because they are all granddaughters, there may be a chance that my son and his wife, my daughter and her husband may want a boy - or that's what I hope!"

Mr Goh's son, Dr Goh Jin Hian, is a medical doctor and the executive director of Parkway Shenton.

And his daughter, Goh Jin Theng, is in England with her English husband, Lee Craven.

Let see, if my dad earn about S$1.5million a year = $115,000 / month (Safe estimate) and my hubby as Executive Director who is a medical doctor, I estimate monthly pay to be at least S$10K ($5K /month for junior doctor).

Gosh I affort to be a stand home mum too!

And I guess these salaries can buy lots of diapers and I sure can hired one maid each for my kids.

This again showed how detached out gahment are from the people on the street. SIGH… remember who said $600,000 is peanut?
