I had an Indian colleague in my previous company who got a job in Barclays and he "behaved" like a real expat. He lived in a condo in Bishan and he travelled only in Taxi. He stayed here for 2 years and finally he said Singapore is just too expensive with even 9k salary per month. He got almost equivalent of that salary and moved to Pune and now he is living like a true expat there and is happy.

So I agree, it has nothing to do with colour of skin.


I am late to this party as I am on holiday in UK, at heathrow waiting for flight back.

I am a whitey in Pasir Ris and live in HDB, you need to get out more mate. There are quite a few in Pasir Ris , I used to be the only one but see quite a few around the drive 6 shopping area so i am assuming they live there.

I have a few friends who have mOved out of condo into HDB also.

You just need to get out more from behind your monitor.
