    Putting aside the peculiar PAP system you'd be raising them in, there's not that much to do for kids either, unless air con shopping is considered an activity. Big reason we didn't move this summer is because our eldest expressed a certain amount of cynicism regarding his anticipated lifestyle.
    Yeah, true... Singapore has a similar vibe as Dubai where they see going to the mall as an activity.

    Talking about public transport, EP holders can't apply for a monthly MRT pass, so only day passes and weekly passes. Only citizen and PRs can apply for a monthly MRT pass.

    You actually have a legit reason to hang out at the pub then. No complaining about that!

    Another one: citizens can have a public library card for free. All others have to pay a yearly fee to get one.
