    We should have a backup plan for ourselves right.

    Never take train for a long time already. Is it really so bad?

    If TS is hoping to face less congestion in the trains of upcoming Chinese cities, he will be very disappointed. Better do your research before moving here and there.

    and the traffic jams...goodness. Was in Chengdu recently. The jams there make PIE in peak hours seem insignificant.

    Not only train. Long have I missed strolling along Orchard during weekends in a carefree and relax manner.

    No idea where the Singaporeans who migrated, are nowadays. Are you thinking of migrating? What is your intended destination?

    There are at least 3 types of migration:

    (1) Migrating to avoid death, injury, persecution and threats to existence.

    (2) Migrating to seek a better life, brighter future, more opportunities for your next generation.

    (3) Migrating because you like to try out what life is like in another country.

    (1) & (2) are extremely stressful and the trip can be dangerous.

    (3) is where you are very rich and/or talented. Many countries welcome you.
    and migrating because of change of the weather. When it gets too cold you hv to migrate to a warmer place. LOL

    There are still many places here where you can still relax. Farms, Changi beach, reservoirs (monkeys), lastly .... Tombs.

    Don't confuse your favourable impressions of a country/city/place during a relatively short tour, with the reality of migrating there to live for many years. Don't burn your bridges so fast. Nationality is something to be treasured.

    Your children may have different opinion from you, on the supposed benefits of migrating to any particular place.

    And I would reply... as I often do...

    "OK... Noted... another CSB Thread"

    But of course... this is not EDMW in the 'GreenZone'...

    If a language has a grammar then it is important to use it correctly to avoid misunderstandings. As long as they are funny it might be tolerable.
    There are cases where grammar mistakes can have serious consequences, though.

    Singapore men in Australia are like migrating birds in seasonal changes.

    They fly here in Summer months to nest and mate.

    And fly home in winter months.

    Anyway... if you truly think its better to leave SG and go overseas... then go for it. We agreeing or disagreeing have very little to do with what you have to do in the end...

    I can only hope this is not another NATO, CSB thread...

    With the economy in the Western hemisphere staying stagnant, youth unemployment in unprecedented rate, many Western government's policies are hardly conducive for immigration. The average middle class life in Singapore is far more comfortable than that of a typical middle class in North America, Europe or Australia. Among my friends and I who went overseas to study back in 2007, most of those who stayed and did okay (I don't mean good, just okay) were those whose family were affluent or very Westernized. Very few are in careers or working in companies that can be described by Singaporeans as distinguished or exceptional. Many new immigrants there (often with M.A or Phd) are driving taxis or working minimum wage jobs. Oh add in high sales tax and income tax and you can piece the rest of what I have to say...

    Why do Singaporeans migrate?

    They have discovered that:

    TS is talking about migrating to places like China or Taiwan with lots Chinese... funny thing is that if you find it hard to compete in a country that has a 6.9 million population in the future... imagine what the competition in a country with over a billion population is going to be like....

    But only TS knows what's best for his/her family... who are we to judge...

    But the PRC Chinese see (part of) Singapore as Heaven on Earth.
