    Default Why Sg will be hottest city in Asia for young high flying family

    On plane, visiting student from china city primary 5, not able to answer basic English question "how old are u?"

    Many young just married couples in Beijing looking for job in Sg .. Nothing is more Important than ensuring your child is effectively billingual

    Pollution in Beijing is terrible, smog at top risk level, civil servants full of corruption, pervasive cases of toxic food, prop price as high as Sg but salary only 25pc of Sg

    Hk need no explanation, confirmed future Gotham city with double psf of Sg

    By 2030, Sg will be full of talents wanting fresh air, bilingual education, meritocracy

    You see, the 5% discount is in the loan but 7% ABSD upfront. That will knock a lot of cash out of people, if you consider the existing 3% stamp and 20% downpayment.

    Just outta curiousity, when the child is born, what citizenship will the child be?
    Usually if neither parent is SC, the child is unlikely to be SC.
    So I wonder how the child helps the parent stay on here if the parents do not meet the criteria?

    Btw, I had a neighbour from Beijing who uprooted his family to live in Singapore for 10 years.
    Then in 2008, the family packed and went back to China, this time they settled in Shanghai as the husband said there is more prospect over there.
    I wonder whether they will ever come back to Singapore again.

    just came back from Phuket, big expat community there..

    pretty good standard of living, however when asked how much good education costs there, the expat family i was out with told me - $36,000 per annum for secondary level education... WTF!! i told him to just consider sending their kid to SG.. pretty much good education with cheaper cost, and potential exposure to mandarin language..

    just a quick conversation with the cashier while settling the bill, didn't probe much into it.
