    If you are rich, just invest in any country and you will get the citizenship. Easy.
    Or marry a local obviously you can do that only once lol

    Fiancé has just converted from Malaysian to SG residency so when we get married I'll have SG dependent and She has UK and HK dependent.

    We know that Singpore has haze problems, the entire world has seen news reports on the haze from neighbouring countries. I'll believe that it's as bad as, or even comparable to HK year round, when presented with proof vs handwaving "but I liiiived there!"
    Umm...maybe you should try reading comprehension, you need to brush it up. Did I ever say pollution in Singapore is as bad as HK? I said there is also pollution in Singapore, I never said anything about it being "as bad" as HK, those are words you made up, not me. You shouldn't be accusing others when you even can't read right. And the housing in Singapore IS expensive. Don't believe me? Go move there. I actually have lived there. Have you?

    Your are right Jgl, Singapore haze is pretty bad.. especially last year when it reach more than 200 PSI.
    But normally, it lasted for few weeks and most 2 months. Im sure every country got their own shares of problems. So as for the OP, she really gonna think carefully and consider all the pros and cons before making such a big decision. Good luck and keep us update.

    That sounds like a long time, but of course, it can't be "compared" to HK's pollution.

    But back to your earlier point about celebrities moving to Singapore, one thing I have no hesitation in saying is that Singapore is better to live in than living on the mainland!

    I actually quite like Singapore. In brief doses. After a few days it begins to g.r.a.t.e.

    I must admit I like the idea of Singapore and the sense that it can go its own way. For that alone one is tempted to shift one's allegiances. However, try as I might to like Singapore it just doesn't have the interest that Hong Kong does. Singapore is bland in comparison whichever way one tries to add to add things up. So for that reason alone I will not be shifting any time soon.

    I've been to outdoors places in the US and Europe that I like more than HK's. I coudln't get there from my home via public transportation, though. That's what really draws me/drew me to HK.

    But the better air elsewhere, yeah, that's big.
