I don't think Singapore is very supportive of the retirement thing... next door Malaysia is cheaper to live in and they have a fairly flexible "silver hair" (or some equally bizarre name) retirement visa system.

Are you looking to WORK or RETIRE here? If you mean retire, then presumably you have the funds to do so for the rest of your life, without working? (unless you want to, not NEED to?)

As JP said, singapore is not cheap and actually neither is Malaysia..esp if you want to live in KL. Maybe the smaller towns. like Penang, etc.

Wouldnt Sri Lanka be a better choice, it certainly would be a lot cheaper than Malaysia!
