People's bank is a joke. Lowest interest rate has oways been a given.
Now no more passbooks issued for new accounts. That means if you have small kids opening up new accounts for the first time to deposit ang pao lui, they won't have the joy of owning passbooks with stamped infor of their banking transaction history.

Limited new notes for the public to exchange for the lunar new year. Always run out before 10am. The pop up stations they have for exchanging new notes restricts the no of denomination you can change.

Garbagemen run institution just gets worser and worser in their efforts to cut costs and "modernise" [cashless and paperless]. shit

Have to accept the new change in life. Passbook is the thing of the pass....

Everything are now gone digital and paperless.

And don’t even expect good interest rate for long time to come. The world currency has been flooded by excessive paper printing. Many smart investors around the world are locking their saving here in Singapore. You can try Malaysia, they give better interest rate because they need capital inflow to their economy.

I stopped updating my passbook more than fifteen years ago. Had I done so, I would have been issued more and more passbooks when (very quickly) the pages would run out. Instead, I went online to check my bank debits and credits, and balances and make payments.

Passbooks are something most SgTalkers have fond memories about given that most of us here are quite old. However, we must not assume that our memories dating back 40 to 50 years are shared by someone who is only 10 years old. He is probably more Paylah or Paynow savvy than we (are)...and for him, e-angpow might be his memories 40 to 50 years down his road when something else might be invented that replaces e-banking.

Wisdom does not come with age for some. sotw
Not everyone iz into ebanking yah. Time and time again got news abt our data being hacked into and pple's money tio illegally siphoned. You dunno your past transactions will be expunged from online records after a few years izit.
Black and white hard copies are the safest when it comes to keeping records. Dat way you dun have to pay admin fees when you wish to retrieve past statements. I got experience where garbagemen sent clawback notices claiming non-payment but luckily we got keep hardcopies proving we did.
The passbook is a very important bookkeeping document that online records are unable to substitute for. shit
