A friend of mine moved from Tokyo to Singapore a few years back. Guess what she hates most? That it's almost impossible to go hiking here. Singapore's tallest "mountain" is a whopping 165m (with a paved road to the top), and you need to fly for several hours to find someplace to trek that doesn't feel like a sauna full of bugs.
That said, I've also lived in both Tokyo and Singapore, and on the whole I like Sg better. It lacks Tokyo's endless reserves of new weird stuff, but it's a lot more livable: crowds aren't as crazy, prices are generally cheaper, it's a hell of a lot greener and the climate, while boring, lacks Tokyo's unpleasant extremes. So for me, living in Sg and doing getaways several times a year (which is cheap and easy) is just about perfect.
Also, what is your favorite local food in Singapore? I LOVE TO EAT!
This, on the other hand, is an excellent reason to come to Singapore
