I will just leave this here: 10 things I love about being a Singaporean PR

I have no comment at this point ;)

Point 5 and 9 are the only tangible and "feelable" benefits and that too only if you make use of them, else they too are useless.

I dont agree that CPF should ever be considered as a benefit of PR. Reason is; what matters to a company is the total CTC. Most companies, pass on the $800 employee contribution to the EP holders, if the person negotiates well and same way, most people when take up PR take a big cut because the employee contribution also comes from the original CTC. So makes no difference. Infact affects your cash flow.

CPF is not even a PR/citizen exclusive anymore.

The SRS, if made available by an employer works just as well.

What's that? What are the chances of it being offered?

Well, considering the likelihood of PR approval for the non-cushy job holder singletons and the likelihood of being let able to stay in Singapore, I say take what you can without looking desperate or being parasitic.

11. Having an NRIC number for the whorehouses in Geylang

12. Knowing that having your IC stole will cost you $300

13. Knowing that your sons must do national service

14. Knowing that you can no longer run to "your" embassy when you run over some kids when drunk or Singapore has a national disaster and you just have to get on that RAAF / RAF plane but can't...

Once again, Chris Reed provides the same old entertainment for our board! I'm watching this thread to see more things shooting out. It is Friday!

Maybe he earns enough to make that happen...

What I cannot assess, is whether this "contribution" will be counted favorably when the time comes 8-)

Almost all the points are 'noise' and fluffy crap. The author seems blinkered from reality......
