Free money doesn’t come easy

After yesterday’s announcement that all Singaporeans will be getting their GST Offset Package letter in the mail today, I found at 10pm that the package website where people can claim their “free” monies is down!

Everybody must be rushing to cash in on the free money offer that the heavy traffic has clogged up the pipes down at the CPF servers like an evening traffic jam on the CTE (central expressway)!

Luckily I’ve clocked in a tad earlier yesterday but unfortunately for my parents, I’ll probably have to wait till 3am to see if the mad rush has cooled off or if people are all staying up for it just like me. After all, this is the nation that queues up for freebies overnight for days or just to catch a good seat in a concert.

Update: Wednesday 16 May 2007 at 12:08am, I refreshed the website and found it to be functioning again. Thank goodness I didn’t have to wait till 3am. *phew*
