For me, i would like to be living, next to Jurong Point or the Centris, the condo in Jurong Point, there are cinemas, bus interchange, MRT, 2 NTUCs, restaurants, fast food outlets.

There are a few such places, like Clementi central, Ang Mo Kio central, Tampines central.
But i am a "West" guy so Jurong is good for me.
No Nature reserve type places for me, as there would be many "Maintenance / possible Health" problems to deal with, in humid, rainy Singapore or Asia for that matter.

But would love to live in the dryer wooded areas overseas.

More evidence of over pampered locals. First power outage over 12 hours and the whole country will surrender. :lol:

Unless the maids will carry their bags and be the punkawalla for 'em. :P

Sorry, couldn't resist! :mrgreen:

Yes, many of these locals are too complacent, having had a good life for so long.
Well, a 12 hour blackout would be a start, but i radically propose a 3-6 month Singapore only recession, where these local who always complain to leave or show more appreciation for the current gahment.
And when some of the locals leave, then more good expats can come here and make this place home.
