#SGBudget2015 unfolds on Twitter

After a long weekend, the first day of work of the Year of Goat and also, the Budget Day. I do not usually write things that are more socio-political in nature but I do try to keep up to date with the budget every year (not only if there is Ang Pow or not!). Okay, not just for Ang Pows okay? I am also very concerned over the new policies that they are dishing out every year hor!

Usually, I will follow the telecast of the speech, reading the newspapers, online news sources and etc. But as a techie at work, watching the telecast of the speech is out of the question so Twitter kept me updated. I was following the hashtag #SGBudget2015 yesterday.

According to Twitter, the most tweeted topics of the #SGBudget2015 are
