Loh is well versed about Singapore. I once told him that he can be a Singapore tour guide since he knows so much about his own country.

If you ask me, Malaysia is a good example of the three different major races mingling together and living peacefully, despite some differences. There is give and take. This is what Singapore has been trying to do and still seeking answers to many sensitive issues in particular.
Frankly we can all learn the best from each other, certainly not just one way street. This has been Singapore's experience as without natural resources but just human capital, Singapore cannot do it other way. We are just too small to try to act big and boastful, but we need to think big in order to achieve better results. As a small country, unfortunately we have to work much harder than others to achieve the desired results. Otherwise we will sink into oblivion! Others don't owe us a living.
Neither do we want to be bullied just because we are small sized. Indeed humility is a good opener to whatever resources we want to get into. Otherwise, no one will want to help us to progress further. No way can Singapore be bigger than Malaysia, rest assured.
So please don't hold any grudges against me or my country. Our door is always open to those who want to make friends with us and help us grow. As far as I know, Singapore's foreign policy has always been a friend to all as far as possible and an enemy to none. It concerns our very own survival as a small nation. We will try to make living conditions in Singapore as pleasant as possible to the visitor or resident and indeed much has gone into making our environment and public facilities as good as possible and this is a continuing exercise.
So please visit us, even for a short while. You're most welcome!

Hi Loh, it is all cool now, water under the bridge.
I have lots of good things to say about Sing, no doubt. Also, despite being in the UK for the last decade, I go home to KL very often and every single time, I go to Sing to visit my sister. The general feeling i get is it is a good place to be if you are earning an above average wage. Certainly, the stability and safety is great.
In KL, it is also stable, but crime is high because income disparity is quite big, and coupled with illegals who do not have as much to loose as locals, the crime rate is therefore high. Do not underestimate the number of places you can hide in a country like Malaysia, where the borders to Thailand is also very open, criminals can disappear very easily like ghosts, and that's why it is much much harder to nail these guys.
Anyway, I have been to sing about a hundred times, and will continue to go no matter what.

Loh, you are a good man. So it is not necessary for me to 'stir up' too much, especially when I incur long replies from you. You enjoy your SIN Open and score new friendships with those attending. If I do make it, I promise to buy you a satay or two (even though it costs me double in Singapore)..hahaha.

I think the proper word for to use when describing the crime rate here is 'higher compared to Singapore City' rather than 'high' as it seems to imply that the city is the crime capital of the world without some numbers to back it up. Furthermore it is probably a lot more appropriate to mention that the numbers are higher at urban centres such as KL.

Singapore is still cheap compare to other countries like Europe , Korea or Japan. But personally i love Singapore and i still love the country. I used to go there every year for Christmas when i was younger.

Visit our famous Orchard Road during Christmas and you will understand better what I mean.
And during the Christmas and New Year period, the entertainment spots, particularly new ones like The Ministry of Sound and St James Power Station, apart from our world renowed Zouk, Sentosa and the many international hotels, will host numerous colourful and exciting events to spoil the visitor and patron!

Well I do agree that Orchard Road looks nice during Xmas. However i realised nowadays the road doesnt look as nice in terms of the decos compare to years ago where it used to look more colorful and Big huge decors.

Ah, but you guys are shopping for the "wrong" things, things that everyone else wants. I go to SG often too, with my auto club mates, we congregate at spare parts shops (cheaper than MY even after conversion) n mingle with our SG brethen often.
Just returned from the "Phantom" experience .....
