    • I think it's only house and cars that are expensive in Singapore. Probably only cars if you get a HDB. I lived in the United States and a meal can cost on average $7 - $10 USD, and the housing is terribly expensive. Of course, I lived in the Bay Area, which is known for high property price.

    • The cost of living in Malaysia is a lot higher then Singapore.

      The above if you compare it by S$ to S$ and RM to RM.

      A lot of things in Singapore is cheaper than Malaysia except for housing and medical.

    • Generally speaking food is still ok here if you are not the type to eat at restaurants and don't mind eating home cooked food. Other than that, things like housing, cars are really expensive.

    • Prices are ok here if you want to lead a simple life, the problem is..what else is there to do in Singapore that is free? No mountains to hike to hills to climb.

    • I think the only expensive thing is housing....but that is one of the factor that scare foreigners away, otherwise will be more over-populated, like hongkong

    • to Cho_Hakkai, i'm Malaysian too..i agree with you. But medical i don't think so...haha, because in Malaysia you always have to re-visit to get treated. And our public hospital Q is very long, and have "world class" manners and services.... in Singapore, you pay for the quality for the medical treatment ok...

       

      btw, many Singapore hospitals are owned by Malaysia listed corporate now!

    • But in Singapore, you can rely on public transport to get around, you don’t really need a car, whereas it might not be the case in other cities with poorly planned public transport.
