Singapore

Thinking of working in Singapore. I'm American and I do not know much about it except that they are strict, clean, and have good foodie shops. I'm an introvert who barely fits in my own culture much less another one.

      It's no wonder they didn't fight for independence--Malaysia kicked them out of their country for being un fricking bearable.

      sinagapooreans are just chinks who live in a wealthy and differently-oppressive country. Singapore is a police state, just shine and wealthy one that communist china aspires to be "Singapore model".

      Unless you're tall and/or good looking, it's over for you buddy boyo. females can smell an incel a mile away (from your unattractiveness). If you're just mentally ill (autistic), they pick up on that as soon as you open your mouth.

      the countries where singaporeans travel the most are japan and south korea. they are buttholes who believe that they can be rude to the locals except these countries. they are rude to vietnamese and filipino helpers and laugh at the english accent of migrants from mainland china but they are kind to koreans and japanese who can not even say a simple english greeting. singaporeans are little gays.

        It's pathetic. Most Singaporeans are proud to be mentioned by the South Korean or Japanese media. But I've never seen the Japanese and Koreans like this. Maybe the Koreans and Japanese do not even care what Singaporeans thinks of them.

      Singaporean women are not as picky as people are criticizing, except they are quite sensitive to your nationality. For example, if you are from South Korea, they are curious about you, but if you are from India or PRC, they do not welcome you.

              >boring soulless etc
              this stuff gets posted every thread when singapore is mentioned. i think you must be going to a different singapore.
              i spend half my life in malaysia. i visit singapore reasonably frequently. singapore has a reasonable cultural scene by comparison to malaysia. there are decent theatres, you can see movies that aren't ridiculously over-censored, there are a couple of decent museums and galleries, you can see a few decent bands, stuff like that. some international acts use singapore as a stop-off point so that people from the surrounding countries can go to shows there.
              of course any european/american city has all of these things but in asia they're not so common
              from my point of view if you think singapore is boring etc, you're doing it wrong

                - remember when you learned to drive and was conscious about direction of travel, right of way and picking a lane?

                most singaporeans don't drive and walk like fricking morons into your path and always bumping into each other despite the spacious urban planning

                - treat your elders with respect is because our elders generation fought in wars and worked their asses off to contribute.

                SG elders were spoon fed everything by their ruling party, jockey for seats on public transport - blocking and slowing everyone down, are blatantly racist in private. filial piety means guilted into providing for abusive failures

                - laws that stamp out racism

                the ethnic Chinese majority doles everything out based on racial percentage to "be fair" so every other race inevitably gets the shaft. "mandarin required" public job listings to filter you out

                - first world country, third world people: famous quote about Singapore

                built on slave labour exploiting south asia, filipinos and neighbouring developing nations. during China's rise in the 90s/00s there was a huge migration of mainlanders a generation away from sitting on a farm dirt floor around a boiling pot of dog. thus, hotpot is still popular and being a dick with no manners

                - world class transportation

                driving with their horns, aiming at pedestrians. idiotically building more roadways over their limited land, burning and burying trash to expand said land into the ocean, destroying tropical ecosystem. slaves transported in back of hot, unsafe trucks like cattle

                - safe

                it's illegal even for the locals to protest. you have to obtain a permit and they're never approved. social media phone camera public shaming tattle tale culture.

                - prosperous

                the locals price each other out of their public housing. forced to marry each other young to queue for housing = drinking, cheating, gambling because individual happiness pursuits are not emphasized. the successful are soulless drones walking around with frowns on their faces.

            However, this fact doesn't make it not boring as frick

            the miracle of Singapore's growth was made possible due to being tightly run by a group of western-educated and genuinely smart leaders. Lee Kuan Yew surrounded himself with the very best people in almost every part of government and made possible something that even he didn't think could be done.

            the problem is that there is nobody to replace them. the new generation of politicians are in it mostly for the money or because they were born in a political family. many of them are borderline incompetent and they are a shadow of the rulers that made Singapore great. I do not think the future is very bright for Singapore

    Singapore is a hot jungle prison for spoiled rich chinks

    The women are unbearable and also very weird, go on the dating apps there and you'll see how many singaporean couples are into swinging, gangbangs, cuckold relationships. Like it seems they're all bored out of their minds and their only escape is doing weird shit.

    Every young guy/girl i met hated themselves and their life in general and said they wanted to get the frick out of there to europe or some shit (lol)

    The food is nice but it's getting more and more expensive, and a lot of the "popular" addresses are straight up tourist traps so if you follow any youtube/food guide you'll get scammed easily.

    Life is expensive, rent is high, real estate is overpriced, it's a giant mall with high temperature and humidity. If you go there and don't make six figures from the start you'll live like a peasant.

    It's also a police state, they put CCTVs everywhere and even in apartment buildings to the point where they can follow you from your job all the way to your fricking apartment door just by switching cameras. Not that they have a choice, the last time they tried being a freedom loving country they had race riots/ethnic conflicts.

        yes but the local pussy is not very good. I did enjoy the variety of other Asian girls (Japanese, Korean, Chinese). the white girls are also easy in Singapore because most white guys there prefer Asian girls but the white women don't want to frick Asian guys, so they'll easily frick anyone white-ish

        I'd love to live in Singapore short term, the location is 10/10 for travelling alone. Close to Indonesia/Malaysia, all of SEA at your doorstep, and relatively cheap flights to China/Japan, India, UAE and Australia. So many completely different parts of the world within reach.

        I don't know what kind of a view you'd like then. in Singapore you can easily get sea views, there's a lot of greenery too, I just chose to live downtown and I still had spectacular sunset views and a nice view over chinatown. it's hard to get any kind of a nice view in most other places I've lived in, I found Singapore amazing in this regard.

        >they simply don't have the cultural amenities
        ???
        what do you classify as "cultural amenities"?
        it has probably the best theatres in the whole region until you get to taiwan, japan or australia

        people in this thread are coming from the US or Europe so they're going to be extremely disappointed with the cultural stuff in Singapore.

          this stuff gets posted every thread when singapore is mentioned. i think you must be going to a different singapore.
          i spend half my life in malaysia. i visit singapore reasonably frequently. singapore has a reasonable cultural scene by comparison to malaysia. there are decent theatres, you can see movies that aren't ridiculously over-censored, there are a couple of decent museums and galleries, you can see a few decent bands, stuff like that. some international acts use singapore as a stop-off point so that people from the surrounding countries can go to shows there.
          of course any european/american city has all of these things but in asia they're not so common
          from my point of view if you think singapore is boring etc, you're doing it wrong

          i love live music, comedy, theatre, all that stuff. i'm from the uk and within about an hour's drive from my house there are three or four towns with more events every week than happen in singapore in a year.
          but i now have various connections to asia, that's how my life has turned out and i have to make the best of it. at least in singapore there are a few things that happen now and again. example, pic related. in a couple of weeks, within a couple of days, suede, manic street preachers, interpol and bloc party are all playing in singapore. i'll be there for both shows and i expect every other generation-X expat within a 1000 mile radius will be there too

    To this day they execute people for possession of cannabis. I mean I get it, they outlawed it in the 19th century and have always had harsh penalties. But they had an opportunity to get with the times while other countries are legalizing the stuff and at least not kill people because of it. Instead, they give free reign to the psychopaths. This makes the country a shithole in my book. Never going there again.

    american been here +10yrs, if you are an introvert move near east coast park, get a bike enjoy the park, fast internet, nice condos, awesome airport to fly around the region. If you are not out partying in town and not spending on stupid shit you can save frickin bank here.

    I make 10k/mo and save half. I live simple and drink at local bars in my hood with a bunch of local/expat dudes, take the bus, shop at Fairprice and eat out for lunch in town daily near my office.

    life is easy if you adapt to what is working well here and dont live some shitty expat bubble lifestyle.

    if the pay is high I suggest a condo around amber road or east coast road, lots of neighborhood level shit to do without being touristy or expat bubble.

        ) is probably somewhere around 15k per month. You don’t really get great views in Singapore unless you’re at East Coast or maybe Sentosa, but the high rent in this neighbourhood is because its really prestigious, right smack at the financial district, and the condo is probably built and designed by some of the best developers of the country. I’m 100% sure telling a local you met on a dating app you stay here is sufficient to have her come over on a silver platter like an ubereats meal

          and I paid less than 3k per month for that apartment. It was in the southern end of Tanjong Pagar so a bit away from the main financial district and hence it was cheaper.
          Apartments of similar type in the CBD proper were like 4-6k though, not sure where you got the 15k number from. That sounds like some Marina Bay penthouse type of rent

                Asia has countless cities not as soulless as Singapore and just as safe. Singaporeans always cope with the "b-b-but we're safe!!!" Singaporeans are basically living in a Matrix simulation until they die and entirely dependent on the good will of their neighbors to supply them with their basic needs. They'll shit on Malaysia, China, Japan, whatever, but they can't even feed themselves or have a cup of water without depending on those "dirty" countries to pack up their shit and sell it to Singapore for a 10x markup.

                I don’t think Singaporeans ever talk about the city being safe - which is unfortunate because the residents are not aware of how good they have it. I know their civic education is basically the government trying to insist to the populace how war can break out at any time and that the citizenry should be strong and vigilant, but most don’t really care. You honestly read like a larp, like someone who has only internalised talking points and has never spoken to the locals.

                >Malaysia, China, Japan
                Singaporeans don’t shit on Malaysia but they enjoy the favourable exchange rate. So many cross the border for a weekend getaway that the queue at the land border is often several hours long.

                Singaporeans do not like Chinese immigrants (read: those from China) because plenty who come are considered uncultured and uncouth by local standards, which in a way is true because a sizeable population of Chinese immigrants are from China’s inner cities and villages. But I don’t think Singaporeans have any significant ill will towards China.

                Japan remains a top travel destination for Singaporeans, which is ironic because this is despite the brutal occupation the Japanese once subjected the city to. There is a lot of love for Japan in Singapore

                Singapore does not have a natural water supply and gets it from Malaysia. Malaysia occasionally threatens to cut off the water supply, and Singapore will threaten war if they do so. On the Malaysian side, they occasionally publicise war games attacking island targets. Singapore however is seeking water independence through a water renewing filtration system so as to reduce reliance on Malaysia.

                On another note, Indonesia used to send saboteurs to Malaysia and Singapore to protest their independence from the UK. Some of the bombs they installed exploded in highly public places. Since 9/11 Singapore has become to varying degrees an important terror target, and so the threat of terror attacks always remains in the minds of the ruling government

Singapore isn’t keen on being like Ukraine, a country that’s unprepared for war and is constantly begging for aid. Singapore is closer to Israel, and aspires to defend against countries much larger than itself.

    Singaporeans are similar to HKongers; they believe they are Westerners in the guise of Easterners, with British colonial legacy. Foreigners who are not discriminated against in Singapore are white people and other first world Asians from South Korea and Japan.
