What’s in it for me?

$400! Yay!

After today’s Budget Spitch, you might want to either wail about not getting any goodies, or you might want to hail having some cash perk you think you’ve always deserved.

Well, you really can. The Ministry of Community Development, Youth and Sports has this unit called The Feedback Unit, which does all these feedbacky things. And they want your feedback. This Unit also especially wants overseas Singaporeans to feed them back regarding today’s Budget Spitch, and to that end, there’s been some chat session thing set up for Monday (Asia/Europe | Americas).

So, get to it. Whaddya waiding for? Go talk to your FB unit!

TODAY: Idol bloggers

chip1502.jpgThey may not be able to sing, but you can bet they’ll write about it …

LAST week I touched on how I thought bloggers and podcasters would participate in the General Elections (GE) by talking about the rallies and speeches.
