I came accross this article yesterday and it disgusted me quite a bit:

JB nursing homes draw some S’poreans

Here’s a short snippet from the article that caught my attention:

Health Minister Khaw Boon Wan, who said Singaporeans could save money by using JB nursing homes. For what it costs to board someone in a private nursing home here, ‘you can stretch it easily to pay for at least 21/2 months of nursing home care in Johor Baru’, he said.

Can you imagine.. the government is doing everything to their advantage. If Malaysia has cheap petrol, we in Singapore have to make sure that our fuel tanks are 3/4 filled up before entering Malaysia, so as not to make use of their low-cost heavily subsidised petrol. When it comes to ever-rising population of old folks, go right ahead and dump them in JB.. and it’s cheap!

Check out public responses here. Khaw should be ashamed of his statement. This is so wrong :(
