Given how expensing housing is getting (even public housing what with all the million dollars home sales) and how owning a car is effectively out of reach (given the >100k COE), I wonder what’s the point of living here.
You slog at work everyday to be able to afford only some shoe box unit and that’s it. You work every day to service the mortgage until you die.
There is also very limited things you can do or explore here. After some time, singapore becomes boring. There’s nothing much to look forward to.
I’ve studied abroad and I miss my time there. My friends overseas can buy a huge landed home for just 300k. And cars are so affordable.
I often seen them camping at some US national park or going on road trips. They are also paid more for similar roles I do here.
Sigh. I don’t have a wife or kids. Since there is nothing tying me down here, I contemplate just moving abroad indefinitely.
Anyone feels the same?
- Go forth, for the rest of us that cannot.
- How the heck do y’all even find the opportunity to move overseas, pls give tips
- Since there is nothing to tie you down, consider trying it out for a few years and see if you like it?
Most of my friends who left Singapore mostly say they miss the convenience, the food, being closer to home, the safety, and the low tax rate. But all of them eventually adjust well to their life in other countries.
