Last Nov. 5, the National Capital Region (NCR) was placed under alert level 2 by order of the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases. The relaxation of community quarantine protocols was akin to releasing water from a dam. Cabin fever, which has been afflicting us since the start of the pandemic in 2020, finally found a “cure,” so to speak. Families excitedly visited malls, restaurants, and other public spaces in droves, towing babies in strollers, etc. As a health care worker, I was upset and scared to see this spectacle of cabin fever “freedom.” Although the number of active cases is going down, still we should not let our guard down. COVID-19 is still very much around and there are people dying from it, especially among those who are unvaccinated. The congregation of space-deprived individuals (due to lockdowns, home quarantines, etc.) in shopping malls led me to ponder on the need for more open green spaces in Metro Manila or any urban area.

Of all the compelling characters on television right now, Roman Roy in Succession is perhaps the most compulsively watchable. Played by Kieran Culkin, Roy is the youngest and possibly the least scrupulous of a mostly scruple-less media family. You won't see it on the HBO show, but Culkin really knows how to accessorise. The actor's stacking masses of jangling beads up his arm, in the manner of a beatific and mesmerising shaman or summer camp counsellor, caught the attention of social media when he appeared on US talk show The Ellen DeGeneres Show a few years ago. And, as evidenced by his appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in November – where he wore several black rings and beaded bracelets – jewellery remains a passion of his. Paired with his sharp black suit (and sharper wit), the look speaks to a shift in how men wear fine jewellery. Mainly, they're wearing more of it – and not just the usual combination of a watch, wedding band and occasionally a family ... » Learn More about Men are wearing jewellery and luxury houses like Cartier are taking note
SINGAPORE - Most owners of Housing Board flats can expect to pay more in property taxes next year, as the Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore (Iras) will be revising the annual value (AV) of HDB flats in line with increase in market rentals. Iras said in a statement on Wednesday (Dec 1) that the AV will be revised upwards by 4 per cent to 6 per cent, with effect from January next year, and that this is part of its annual review of properties to compute the property tax payable. With the revision in AV, all one-room and two-room flat owner-occupiers will continue to pay no property tax. This will also be the case for 35 per cent of three-room flat owner-occupiers, while 65 per cent of three-room flat owner-occupiers will each pay between $8 and $14 more annually. The four-room, five-room and executive flat owner-occupiers will each pay between $21 and $26 more annual property tax in 2022. Iras said it monitors market rental trends to determine the AV of properties. AV is ... » Learn More about Property tax for HDB flats to increase, payment due in Jan

Follow us on Telegram for the latest updates: https://t.me/mothershipsg About a year ago, Minister for National Development Desmond Lee said that HDB flats in prime locations will not be exclusively for the rich . Lee said that this would be achieved through ensuring that new Housing and Development Board (HDB) projects in prime locations include various types of housing, such as rental flats and smaller HDB flats for lower-income families and the elderly, and through placing limits on resale transactions, to keep their prices from ballooning over time. So it should come as no surprise to anyone that the housing model for the new "Prime Location Public Housing (PLH)" flats have come with increased restrictions , including a 10-year minimum occupation period, and a requirement for owners to pay a portion of their sale proceeds back to HDB, if and when they sell their flats. One other aspect of the announcement touched a raw nerve, however: These PLH flats would not be ... » Learn More about Mothership Explains: What’s up with Prime Location HDBs excluding singles while being ‘inclusive’?
Follow us on Telegram for the latest updates: https://t.me/mothershipsg COMMENTARY: Many people believe that investing in property is a financially-prudent choice for most of us, but is that really the case? Not always, and especially nowadays, explains startup co-founder Shawn Low. He shares how returns on investment in properties have greatly decreased overall in the past couple of decades and why because of that, property may not be as wise an investment as conventional wisdom has said it is. Low is the co-founder of Better.com, a home ownership tech company that aims to make homeownership more accessible for everyone. By Shawn Low I recently went to view a showflat with my wife. It is just the two of us for now, and even factoring in the possibility of kids in future, we didn’t think that we would need much space. However, the property agent still advised us to consider buying a larger unit or even an additional unit because it would be “a good ... » Learn More about Is investing in property in S’pore really as good an idea as everyone says it is?
