    ya lah....nothing beats the safety n security of singa. Go overseas have to learn to adapt, protect urself, ur $$ and blend in lor. If dont dare to try and explore, u'll always be stuck in this suing country.

    Sometimes migration does not necessarily lead to a better career.

    I've seen people doing better in their own countries than they are in Australia.

    And also be prepared to climb from a lower rank of the ladder to get established when newly arrive. Your experience and qualifications may not carry as much weight as they are in your own country.

    I've seen my Hong Kong, Chinese, Malaysian and Phillipino friends packed up and went home after a stay here.

    Some of the bright young ABCs (Australia Born Chinese) who are brought up and educated here are heading to Shanghai, Beiching, Hong Kong, Tokyo and Singapore for better paying jobs and lower tax.

    Best of luck!

    lol..overseas (i.e. socialist countries) will be better in terms of social security, although income tax will suck money off you. However, you are usually guaranteed by the local government (except for US) that your health bills, education, pension, retirement, disabilities...etc...will be heavily subsidized or foot totally by the government.

    High tax = higher income for government = higher spending by government on social scheme
    Low tax = low income for gahmen = low spending by gahmen on social scheme

    In a nutshell...if you make a rich guy you would want to stay in low tax countries or move your savings there...if you are an ordinary average joe or poor guy..you want to stay in high income tax countries.

    Usually those professionals who run off to overseas to work is because of lower income tax in that country and they don't get taxed by their country of their origin (citizenship): exception only comes in for US who tax their overseas expatriates after a certain income cut-off point.

    Then when these young bright expatriates get old and retired/not worth employable by overseas companies....they come backhome for their local free medical health care OR buy a home overseas and come back home for medical checkups or send their children to the local universities where it is heavily subsidized..despite that they dont pay little if not no tax lol

    You have to take note that some jobs are not in demand in certain countries (unless you are a plumber/chef/accountant/IT programmer/others?) ...or that most overseas degrees are not recognized (unless you are from HArvard, Oxford, Cambridge etc OR if you dont have working experience with MNCs ) so some people have to take up university/college courses to make you perceived as certified locally .

    You better move when you are young..otherwise it gets harder...especially with responsibilities.

    Help you careerwise??? depends on what field you are in and how your resume looks like? Mostly it might be a setback in terms of careerwise (move down the ladder)....But i agree that competition in education in general wont be as grueling as singapore's and generally you can be assured that healthcare is more guaranteed when you are old and can't work.
