M'sian Chinese or not, I doubt you would be successful, but then again, nothing ventured, nothing gained. Just be prepared for rejection and anything else will be a bonus.

With that salary I wonder how you survive in Singapore. Do you live in JB and commute to SG daily? You are not getting PR if you are doing that.

I know people who travel from one end of Singapore to the other end every day via taxis. Do you reckon it's any more expensive than that during peak hours?

Expensive not only in term of $ but travelling time also. Generally will need to take 2 hours one way, 1 hours ferry 1 hours immigration clearance, not counting time from ferry terminal to home or the other way round, and the fee for return is around $35-50.... :roll: :roll:

So then the time and cost factor are nearly identical if talking about Changi to Tuas and peak hour traffic 2x a day. Was just a thought. Add to that considerably cheaper cost of living. Still an option if circumstances were right. But agreed, it's definitely not for me.
