Inexpensive Ways to Reconnect with Old Friends

 

We all treasure the memories of old friends—the laughter, deep conversations, and shared experiences. However, as life progresses, it’s not uncommon for these connections to fade.

Busy schedules, diverging life paths, and geographical distances can all contribute to this gradual drift apart. But fear not, for reconnecting with old friends need not strain your budget.

USE TECHNOLOGY

The digital age offers myriad opportunities to rekindle old friendships. A simple online message or call can kick-start the process. Reach out to your old friends, expressing genuine interest in their lives. Inquire about their recent endeavors, families, or work. Demonstrating authentic interest lays the groundwork for rebuilding a meaningful connection.

SCHEDULE MEET-UPS

Once communication lines are reopened, take proactive steps to arrange face-to-face meetings. Whether it’s a casual coffee outing or hosting a dinner at your place, commit to spending quality time together. Mark it on your calendar and prioritize it accordingly.

INITIATE CONVERSATIONS

Initiate conversations by reminiscing about shared memories or amusing anecdotes. “Do you remember when…” These nostalgic recollections transport you both back to a time when your bond was strong, easing any initial awkwardness and facilitating more organic conversations.

TRY GROUP ACTIVITIES

Participating in group activities or events offers an excellent opportunity to reconnect with old friends while also meeting new people. Explore local hobby clubs or check out offerings on platforms like Klook, where activities are available at affordable prices (starting from S$6). Whether it’s treasure hunting, perfume making, or any other shared interest, these activities foster connections and create new memories.

LET GO OF RESENTMENTS

Release any lingering grudges or unresolved conflicts from the past. While addressing these issues may be necessary in due course, focus initially on highlighting common ground and the positive aspects of your friendship.

STAY CONNECTED

Consistency is key to maintaining rekindled friendships. Keep communication lines open with regular texts or calls. Remember important dates like birthdays and holidays, using them as opportunities to strengthen your bond. End conversations or meetings by making plans for future get-togethers based on shared interests.

By implementing these budget-friendly strategies, you can successfully reignite old friendships and nurture them into lasting connections without breaking the bank.

HDB flat assistance measures for young couples and families starting June 2024

HDB flat construction in progress

News has it that the government is making it easier for young couples to buy their first HDB flat starting in June.

And here’s what they are going to do:

Lower the initial down payment from 20% to just 2.5% of the purchase price.

What are the requirements?

Right now, couples, where one is a full-time national serviceman, student, or recently completed their studies or national service in the last year, can defer having their income assessed until right before they get the keys.

This is because if they were assessed earlier, they might not qualify for grants like the Enhanced CPF Housing Grant (EHG), which requires being employed for at least a year.

By waiting until key collection to check income, the couples have a better chance of getting the grant or even qualifying for a higher loan amount.

Other requirements for deferred income assessment include one person being 30 or younger.

The couple must also be married or applying together under the Fiance-Fiancee Scheme, where the minimum age is 21.

Down payment benefits

Additionally, young couples currently have the option to split the minimum 20% down payment into two installments.

The first is either 5% or 10% depending on the loan, and the second is due at key collection.

Since 2018, over 3,700 couples have used deferred income assessment and staggered down payments to make it easier to buy their first flat earlier.

Now, the government wants to help reduce the initial costs even more.

For some, the reduced initial down payment of just 2.5% will significantly lower the financial barrier to owning a home.

The changes take effect starting with the BTO sales launch in June.

Additional rental vouchers

Families who qualify for the Parenthood Provisional Housing Scheme (PPHS) will also get temporary $300/month rental vouchers while waiting for their new homes to be completed.

HDB is doubling the supply of rental flats they provide to help meet demand. 

In the interim, the government will provide eligible families vouchers for a year starting in July to help cover renting an HDB flat or bedroom on the open market.

The $300 amount was carefully set to provide relief without over-inflating rental prices for others.

To qualify for the new vouchers, families must meet the PPHS requirements and have a rental tenancy registered with HDB when applying.

Those eligible will get reimbursed based on how long their approved tenancy falls within the year.

With that said, renting from family members won’t count.

More details will be shared closer to the official launch so stay tuned if you’re eyeing this segment from the government.
