PPP chairman Syafarin Sarif: It's better to die than seek medical help in Singapore

A fellow friend who has just moved to Malaysia told me that he went for a medical check-up at a public hospital in the state that he now calls home. After some hours of check-up and an assortment of medication, he was surprised when he was informed that he only needed to pay RM1.00 (about SGD 0.35).
Another friend from a city in China revealed that the daily bill for a hospital stay was about SGD 20.00. I asked if it included 3 square meals and the answer was affirmative.
And here I am, not wanting to seek any medical help in view of the nonsensical amount that could be imposed unto me even after my death, perhaps.
To just die seems like a better option.
