Remember I blog about organizing the CNY concert. I thought it was a job well done, but my staff think otherwise and believed that there were many hiccups. Well, I have to tell them we can planned until the cow come back and things will still go wrong, but generally, I think we did ok. LOL
I made a mistake and had a clash of committements. I told my Ps about it and got a "saying" i usually would feel quite bad, incompetent etc. for quite a while, this time round, it last just 5 min and I laughed it off.
I am quite a henpecked husband, but now, I quite straight forwardly "tell my wife off" in a gentle manner without feeling anxiety LOL. And she didn't even mind.
I told my staff to leave earlier in a useless briefing, he was shocked. I said, just read the info.
Getting my thick skinned is a good thing in my opinion.
I see things less "absolutely" now.
With all the changes in the CPF lately; there were plenty of calculation of impact. For me, I think it is a wonderful system, and the gate keepers have thus far doing more good than bad. But I refuse to calculate.
Too many variables can be, and might be changed, and perhaps too frequently at the "whim and fancy" of gate keeper.
Although many changes are for the good than bad, but I prefer it as a sacred cow than a convenient tool.
Look at the changes in contribution rate. It is not infrequent. Although the raises are more than the falls. So, am I very excited about the raise in income ceiling and 1% more interešt for those above 55? I am
Minimum sum calculation is still not clearly explained on how future adjustment will be. I am
Not against adjustment per se, but words like the rate of adjustment to take into account cost of living and STANDARD OF LIVING will not BE AT THE PACE OF RECENT years are just too vague.
Then we have the DDA
When my time comes, can someone tell me what is the DDA?
When I can take 20% lump sum, I will take it. Unless I have so much outside the system that CPF is just a small supplement of my retirement plan, which I think on the contrary, I think CPF will form the bulk of my retirement fund, I want the stark in hand. You can calculate all the interešt I will be losing but I won't blink.
A bit out of point towards the end. But I just blog where my mind goes. I thick skinned, remember?
