GUY SAYS THERE ARE TWO S’PORES – ONE FOR THE WEALTHY AND ONE FOR ORDINARY FOLKS

Does anyone else feel like there are two Singapores? One for the wealthy privileged class and one for ordinary folks?

From young we were told that if we worked hard in school, get good grades and land a good job, we can attain social mobility.

Somehow, I feel that despite doing all that, I still can’t close the gap with my peers who were born into wealth and privilege. I thought I would be able to afford a condo at a specific location. Turns out that I can’t. I thought I would be able to get a specific type of car. Turns out that I can’t. I thought I would be able to afford a specific type of lifestyle. Turns out that I can’t.

On social media, I see so many people living the high life. I wonder how they can afford all this. The home, the car, the lifestyle. It just baffles me.

I wonder how social mobility became out of reach for me despite working so hard and diligently all my life. Sigh. I am now considering moving to a place that will allow me to afford the lifestyle that I want. I feel like Singapore is no longer a place on which I can realize my aspirations. It’s feeling less like home every day.
