No, I just don't blow smoke. I try to tell it like a see it. A lot of posters make their posts looking for a preconceived answer as they want it to be. I try to see it from a lot of anecdotal evidence and one who has already walked a lot of those miles years ago. I also try to understand the current position of the government (which changes periodically - since May 2011, a lot more periodically).
I also have first had knowledge of a case where one party was a Singapore citizen working in the UK (in the financial district) and married to an eastern European. When they returned to Singapore, they got dual citizenship for the girl and kept the boy on a UK passport and in the International Schools
on student passes so as to keep him out NS. I tried to tell my boss that ICA were going to burn him later but he wouldn't listen, so, the boy graduated from the International School
, went to university in the UK, got his degree and not cannot get back to Singapore except on a SVP. He'll not even be able to get an EP here as the government is wise as to what was done and are rather vindictive that way. Oh, one other thing. The father is also a card carrying PAP member as well so you can discount the things I say at your own peril. As I said, these are things that "could" happen. I did not say they would.
You will find most on this board tend to give you the truth as we see it, and not some pipe dream. At the end of the day, the choice is entirely yours. As I said before, good luck. It wasn't meant sarcastic the first time and isn't meant that way this time either.
