Well that changes things. It's a nice place.

Yes, I agree. One of my favorite places to live.

The cliche that SG is a shopping mall with capital punishment is generally true. The transit is fairly good, and I assume the circle line has made it better. The housing stock is decent quality. Great food in the lower price range, pretty good mid priced but on the higher end European/American food is poor, terrible nightlife, really nice people, low taxes, zero crime. Strong labor market for highly skilled foreigners. Excellent flight connections around SE and NE Asia, Dubai, Aus. Overall it is a solid place to live. I'd pay 100$ for a Ya Kun kaya toast these days. My (unrequested) advice to Kuros is to very carefully choose where he lives as I assume he won't have a car, the taxi system is not all that good outside of the CBD/centre and the weekends will be pretty boring if out in HDB-land in Woodlands/Juron/Choa Chu Kang/Senkang, etc. If a job will require heavy travel (which most jobs in F500 firms do) living in the south east is a must. I greatly enjoyed being there.

I wish I could find a good Kaya toast. I liked the nightlife, but it is stupid expensive. I'd recommend going to JB right across the boarder sometimes for shopping/eating, taking advantage of the cheap travel around the region, and if you get a chance go to Tioman island in Malaysia. I lived in Sembawang, Titus is right about trying to live in the center, taxis are expensive, but living outside it is doable.

Speaking of weird cultural trends: My Parents Open Carry, the childrens book.

Quote:
Come join 13-year-old Brenna Strong along with her mom, Bea, and her dad, Richard, as they spend a typical Saturday running errands and having fun together. What's not so typical is that Brenna's parents lawfully open carry handguns for self-defense. The Strongs join a growing number of families that are standing up for their 2nd Amendment rights by open carrying and bringing gun ownership out of the closet and into the mainstream.


Also, I didn't know "National Take Your Daughter To The Range Day" existed until today.
