Household income - 80K SGD (P.A) (40K for each)

I would say the chances are quite slim given that there will a large pool of similar applicants (profession/salary range wise).

That's interesting, I have a Korean colleague who went to apply for Citizenship without any appointment and they accepted her application. She got the impression that they look favorably upon Korean nationals. I'm not sure if that's wishful thinking on her part or whether it's true, but just sharing.

wow, citizenship w/o going thru the PR process. haha

My coworker's case i think offers some hope. His salary is not super high, he is not malaysian chinese and his wife is not working and yet the both got their PRs!

citizenship w/o an appointment

Trashmaker: How could they apply their citizenship w/o an appointment? that's very strange.

This is not from personal experience, but I know several people personally who did this.

You go to ICA with all your citizenship application documents, and you will get it checked by one person who checks whether you have all the documents. You go to another counter and they go through your documents and tell you whether you should apply or not. Some people get positive feedback, so they go to a third counter and submit their application formally. Some people get negative feedback like (your salary is too low, etc etc) and then they go back home with a sad face. Now the exact mechanics might be different as these stories are not first-hand experiences, but this should give you the picture.

No harm trying. After all, you have been here for more than 3 years already. But I wouldn't think you have good chances because you belong to the group of people that are considered 'undesirables' (their words, not mine): PRC, Filipino, Burmese, Indian, etc; but I might be wrong.

Do keep us updated.
