I think only for housing.
I'll disagree with you on that one...... though hawker food here is a tad cheaper than the street food in HK, but only a tad. Meal times overall usually work out cheaper in HK because you get a beer or a wine at a fraction of the cost there.
By the time surcharges kick in for taxis they work out a similar price here and buses/trains in HK are similar to here also.
If you include cars and petrol in your "transportation" then your arguement is on shakier ground, though parking in HK can be expensive if you head into the wrong car park. Cars themselves in HK are ridiculously cheap given the size of the place.
Overall....... i end up spending more money in Singapore than i ever did in Hong Kong and with the exception of the larger apartment for the same price I don't think my lifestyle is any better for it.
