Some tuition isn't so bad lah.... because its for a better job prospect later in life. But I agree about the Kiasu-ness of out tuitioning everyone else means its 'good'... at the end of the day.... its the final results that matters.
Owning a Car due to Job requirements (sales, transportation of goods) is understandable... but if solely just to 'show off' or so you don't have to take public transportation, just means putting you in the debt trap....

I am not sure how this classification works. House hold income itself is already very difficult to define. I use to read official data on average house hold income but from my own experience and contacts, it is far from the truth.
A house hold income of $2k may means a single person working more than 12 hours daily to support a family of 5 or more. For middle income group, their income actually goes toward housing and transportation. Asset rich but not much hard cash.
The focus should be quality of life. Survey how people spend their time at work, commuting, leisure. What is the point if you spent 14 hours commuting and in work place and left with nothing for family and yourself BUT own a condo that is just not much different from a BTO?
Too much emphasis on material than quality of life but I guess we are all suck into this hole.
A perfect solution is to work in Singapore and live in Johore to beat the high cost of living.
Quite a number of people have been doing it for many years. And such arrangement is catching up.
The beautiful part is this would free the housing areas in Singapore for more economic and industrial activities.
This could be a win win solution for all.
This is possible only if you are willing to include the jams and traffic crossing the Causeway/2nd link daily for Work or School... I don't want to give the usual stereotype answer of Safety and Crime, but one of the biggest issue for me, would be the time I'll have to spend, commuting between country. And being that I could hardly speak or understand the Malay language, it would make communication difficult (not everyone in SG or MY speak English).
Lastly... as we are not a citizen of Malaysia.... if one day, under a less open minded Malaysian Govt, our rights to stay, or our property, could be jeopardize.

Define "Middle Class" ,,,
always the Light, .... always.
Forget about classification, you can be low class today, strike Toto tomorrow and become high class. Also one can be rich but low class.
Over the years we have become a very materialistic society because we measure success by dollar-value, . Some may argue we have to be realistic, we are just a little red dot, that is true but I chose and decide how I want to live.
We come to his world with nothing and when it is time to go, go empty handed, can't take the camera gears.
Not gonna happen in our lifetimes Im afraid. Where would our sovereign wealth funds find the money to invest? Certain special pple will be out of a job.
club snap so popular CNA also coming here to get materials haha
