    1) Google
    2) Bing
    3) Singapore Expat Guides - House hunt guide for expat in Singapore, renting apartment or house in Singapore

    As for other people's accusations against me, make up your own mind and don't listen to others. I gave pretty straightforward reasons without resorting to any kind of insults or below-the-belt attacks, and that makes me a troll?! I think you know and I know I was simply engaging in a discussion with you.

Yes, I found those articles on google, but you don't seriously think I waste time researching just to provide the answers? I know precisely where to look because I already lived there so I can zero in on the results.

    Now go back and crawl back into the cave you came from and lets return the discussion to where adults talk. Bye.

    I made no such claim. You asked "How else would I be able to...." and I gave 3 different possibilities how else you would be able to......

    You're so adorable
    The discussion is pretty much over...The only thing left is people ridiculing you as usual/normal.

    Of course, I miss you, you are my go-to-punching bag on geoexpat.

    And those three possibilities are all made up in your mind. Dead wrong as normal. And about as likely as you not being a troll on geoexpat. The discussion was fine before you showed up to hijack it a usual and for me ridicule you as usual. Anyway, since this is how you want to go about things, next time you are having a discussion, I'll hijack yours and see what you think, or better yet, I will have a chat with the Shri about you.

    Enjoy your new life in Singapore. But just know its not necessarily paradise over there either. If you think there is no air pollution in Singapore, boy, are you in for a disappointment...
    Hiking, hiking, hiking, hiking, hiking aaaaaand hiking. The go-to solution on these boards for so many problems. Don't like HK? Try hiking. What a load of BS.

    Walking around HK countryparks is not everyone's cup of tea.

    How old are you people again?

    Cho, you said the reasons for the OP to move are inaccurate... are you saying that the pollution is worse or just as bad in Singapore than here in HK? I agree Singapore has pollution, but surely it can't be as bad as HK.

    Also, property is expensive in Singapore, but surely not as high as Hong Kong...

    I don't get how the OP is inaccurate.

    You should ask HowardCoombs that question, not me.

    I never said there was no pollution in Singapore. That was never my point. As for housing prices, yes, marginally cheaper than HK, but my point is the OP is splitting hair if she thinks she save a bundle with housing by moving to Singapore. Because if you add in the higher cost-of-living and other misc. expenses, the bill you end up with may not really be cheaper than in HK. So moving to Singapore for cheaper housing doesn't make much sense to me. You can't really save much, if you want a comparable standard-of-living.

    What I was saying was that OP should just say she likes Singapore's living environment, and screw all the other reasons. That would be fair enough to me.

    They don't change posting styles and don't leave grudges behind
