He bought a $20mil bunglow in Bukit Timah. If I see pple loitering ard that area with a 300mm, I'll know why.
I guess after the asian financial crisis in 1997 which HK takes a big hit, followed by the global financial crisis this year which US is in bad shape. Singapore makes a good base for him to park his money at least for the next 5-10 years, enough for his daughters to complete high school. This guy is not all brawn, he got brains.

who cares... so wat...
Jet Li, to me, is the asian Chuck Norris.
he doesn't need no gun.
round house kicks will do. that's if the invading armies do not cower in fear from the awesome presence that is Jet Li.
although in a straight fight, Chuck Norris > Godzilla > Jet Li.
Seriously, I am more interested to know that Nina Li is in Singapore. You know how hot she is in the early 90s.
If her daughters takes to her genes .....lol
If I had money like Jet Li, I would love to stay in Singapore too.
Efficient system, extremely safe. Clean air and water. Central air transport hub to anywhere in the world. Reasonably close to emerging world centres like China and India, with quality education and medical facilities. No paparazzi. Best counter-terrorist/ security system in the region, top notch (arguably) defence force in South East Asia. Non Earthquake/ typhoon/ drought/ pestilence/ disease prone zone. Well built drainage system- you wont get New Orleans here. No disruption to system due to strikes, demonstrations, much less riots. Great entertainment at Esplanade, world class plays, great food, excelelnt entertainment.
And because he's a new citizen, no NS hassles, no RT (although I am sure he would never fail his IPPT), no manning, no mob, no 3 week reservist away from your family and work, no 2 year service to the nation. CPF is a non issue. ERP is trivial, GST non consequential. No worries about competition with foreign talent (hey he is one). He wont need to worry about CPF annuity, or moving to JB for his retirement home (singapore IS his retirement home), no problems with meeting healthcare needs, or means testing.
If I were Jet, I would migrate to Singapore too
will he buy a camera and then report to the newbies section ..
World War II - Singapore volunteers and the brave RI NCC boys who were slaughtered.
Konfrontasi with Indonesia. Some 1 & 2 SIR troops were deployed.
But that's not the point. The point is that the NS boys burn the weekends and go all the cleanup work, they get to watch the NDP fireworks from their penthouse suites. I just love Singapore.
You can retire to stay in other countries and at same time remain loyal to Singapore.
