Since our move here from the States our life has so much improved... No more crazy health and tax bills, very low crime, and people here are so relaxed.

It's a great place to be ! Been living in all the typical expat cities around the globe, but prefer it here in the end.

Many snobbish exports come from here to study in Australia and say how much better it is back home. So the solution is straightforward. Stay in your own country lol

Singapore is known for having extremely low crime rates. The fact that people are claiming otherwise only proves that you cannot trust this site.

People need to simply understand that housing prices are high because Singapore is a city state and does not have land to build low density suburbia. Anyways, the city is similar to European cities and that you don't need a car to get around. Public transport is WAY cheaper here compared to other cities. Eating at restaurants is said to be expensive, but it is cheaper than in London or Paris.

The PAP may be the ruling party but looking at the 2020 General Elections, they lost the youth vote and their strategies of carving out new districts to help them haaad backfired. There is also a major power struggle between who will succeed Lee Hsien Loong. This shows that the PAP are shooting themselves in the foot and allowing the opposition to catch up to them.

Basically to summarise, Singapore's expensiveness lies in breaking the middle class barrierto become upper class. The poorest of the poor here still have roofs over their heads, good healthcare and still eat 3 meals a day thanks to government subsidies for the poor. The ruling party is also starting to fall apart and in 20 years' we might be able to see an opposition majority if the PAP do not rebuild themselves
