But it is a simmering world of corruption, income gap, government inefficiency and socio-racial dissension. The upper middle class and below are obviously living in that world. Being a pensioner there is no heaven either.

Perhaps the expats, the aristocrat and the rich do have their bubble to live in, where everything is smooth, safe and isolated. I grew up there and at this point, I am not keen to live/retire there unless I know I will live in that bubble myself :(

I think it's a disaster just waiting to go off and I personally think there is much higher risk of it going off than Indonesia (baring a severe rice famine).
