How has living in Singapore changed your life?

Postby emjay » Thu, 09 Oct 2014 1:23 pm

Hopefully moving to Singapore has had a positive impact on people's lives. But for some, maybe not? How has living in Singapore changed your life for better or worse:
Personally
Family
Financially
Socially
Mentally
Whatever?

One thing that is constant in this question, is that we all change. And each one of us is the sum of all experiences we have.

@OP. Why are you asking?

- There's enough O level students doing 'cookie' surveys as it is...

I have no idea what you are talking about. As someone moving over there, it would be interesting to get a feel for what the significant life changes people experience. But hey, read it some other weird way if that's what floats your boat.

Awesome, thanks for that that Gandhi. Really helpful. No doubt the sarcasm will be lost on you.

Financially - Yes, our savings rate here is higher than my home country

Family - Yes, our daughter was born while we were here :)

Mentally - Yes, my world view is now broader.

Physically - Yes, I have grown 5 years older now :(, I dont blame it on Singapore though.

Unless something has changed in more recent versions of phpbb it required manual editing of the sql tables so I wonder the same.

Oh, you're moving here?

Did you think of telling people that, before the rather ethereal list of questions? Suggestion: You need to help people in order to help you, rather than imagine that they're mind-readers.

Personally Yes, quite a lot
Family Yes, I have one now
Financially Yes, I earned and saved some money in Singapore
Socially Yes, I do have new friends (and lost some old ones)
Mentally Yes, I became wiser
Whatever? Yes, that too!

Does this answer help you?
(I guess not.)

Personally - I'm more of a twat now.
Family - They hate me even more.
Financially - I spent it all on piss and hookers
Socially - see above
Mentally - what do you think from being in bars and brothels at all hours?
Whatever?

The last time that was done was a number of years ago for "Eric from the Netherlands". It has to be done by Admin, so I'm guessing she figures she shouldn't have been using her real name (true) and approached Pal/Joop to change it. Makes sense to me, especially with her uppity attitude toward Lynx and some others here who are only trying to help.

3 people told you pretty directly that your question list is rather silly and you still didn't get it but please be our sarcasm guru.

Clearly the case.
