Why do you want ot move to Singapore?stacey wrote:I know it's more complex than this, but to simplify a little, consider this.
You make $200K in NYC (wall st. related job) and pay $2500/month rent.
What should you make in Singapore to be relatively equal in Salary and what would you expect to pay for rent in Singapore. The NYC rent is for a decent-sized 1-bedroom with 20-30minute max commute time is nice, active and safe neighborhood.
I suppose even if the answer to be equal were, say X SG$ = $50K, now you still have to spend more on travel, and travel to the US or Europe or anywhere else in the world would become much more expensive if the US/other currency is relatively more expensive...
Comments? Who else has made the NYC -> SG move recently?

Don't think Frank really tried living in Asia.stacey wrote:true. (and thank you)
but didnt Frank Sinatra once say that if you could make it here you could make it anywhere? I embraced NYC fine. Am I perhaps too used to it that it would now make it harder to embrace other places?
I leaning towards SG being a no go, fyi.
