Home is where I am at the given time ... so now, it's Singapore ... the real question is where is my heart ... and where is your heart?
Nothing against Singapore, I am enjoying my stay here, but my heart is still from where I came from, and I plan to go back.

I am not a Singaporean. But Singapore is my home since I have been living here for six years aready.(singlish)
Singapore is a great country to live in ! They are many good things here. In fact, I feel very fortunate to be here.
To me, it would be the BEST COUNTRY in the world if : The freedom of expression would be complete like in Europe.
A sign of that is that Singapore ranks very low (146 over 168 countries) in terms of press freedom according to Reporters without Frontiers.
Singapore 2007 press report
Read this report. This is not to start a discussion about it here, pls do not answer on this matter but have you own opinion about it. Of course it is only the view of the Association "reporter without frontier" and is certainly not the absolute truth.
For the Rest, I think Singapore is a great country. What is above, is the only thing that I miss once in a while. Like in this very forum being under the same rules/laws. I wish discussion could go a bit deeper than the usual (without falling into some unnecessary language).
For the rest, Singapore is amazing !
Would I stay here for ever? I do not plan to! It is not specialy linked to SG but my wife is from South America and I am from Europe. In the end of the day, little holds us here, if it would not be my job and the quality of life in SG.

Even if I do not agree with you, I will always fight for you to have your say.
I haven't lived in S'pore for so long that I've forgotten what it felt like living there. Besides the fact that it's very hot and humid that is.
Put in a longer form: Individual Proficiency Physical (Fitness) Test
Been harbouring dreams of settling down in another land for my retirement where I'll juz maybe grow veggies, tender to my own farm and stuff. Just a small hectare of land enuff for a nice house and a veggie farm.
Of cos, I'll fight with my last breath to croak here and live in a 4 by 4 niche in Singapore for sure. Not elsewhere.
I think wherever you go to live, each place has it own quirks, differences and problems.
It is up to the individual to make the best of it and enjoy what we have. Contentment is being happy with whatever little we have and being grateful for it. It's about doing our best no matter what, giving more than receiving, sacrificing more than demanding.
I have worked in Australia before and visited many countries too but right now, Singapore is my home and I am proud of it. I am thoroughly grateful that I can go get my char kway teow, chicken rice, chow fan, etc any time. I am glad that my children can travel to and from school and other places safely without fear for their safety. And many, many other reasons which may be too much for this forum.
