Re: Looking to move back to the UK

Like me, you will have gotten used to, and taken for granted, the peace, safety and security of Singapore. I dread having to go back to the UK, where wandering into "no go" areas in the dark could get you mugged or worse. Kids hanging out by shops causing trouble. Vandalism. Drugs. Drunke...

Re: Wifes PR application rejected

Re: Wifes PR application rejected

Well, to be honest, Indian Nationals started the dirty tricks. So, the Government is playing your own game. You countrymen have been gaming the system here for 20 years. Honestly I am lost here. What dirty tricks, as long as the PR application is concerned you fill up a form give your documents sup...

Re: Living & Working in Hong Kong vs Singapore

I guess I'm going against the grain here but I'd choose Singapore over HK whether I was single or a family. I was a single guy when I worked in HK and at the beginning in SG too. The living standards in Singapore are better imo, you can live in a reasonable size condo in Singapore but it'll cost a f...

Re: Looking to move back to the UK

Looks like I'm a little late to this party, but I relocated back to the U.K 3 years ago after almost a decade in Asia (not all of it in Singapore) and I can honestly say I don't regret it for a second. Take a look and my old post from a few months ago, I've not changed my opinion since then https://...

I applied for PR at the start of last year with the intention of settling down in Singapore, as my wife is also a PR and has been here for over 10 years. Since then, rule changes have made it much harder for PR children to get into local schools, and now ABSD has been put on PRs when buying their F...

I visited a factory that makes components for well completions in Nusajaya yesterday. Malaysia Boleh for sure. That place is rocking along. Wait until you actually lived there and you will regret deeply. No way Malaysia can catch up with Singapore, simply because there are systematic things and str...

Go and stay in Malaysia for a while and only come into Singapore when you've got meetings or job interviews. It'll be much cheaper too.
