      Hi Zul, I signed up at sgforum some time ago but was not active. I'm a S'porean exploring retiring in JB and saw a few of your postings. You seem to have many years of experience residing there and hope you can share your knowledge and experience. Will like to thank you in advance.

    • For me 60 would be ideal. Literally done with life and wants to just settle down watch grand kids grow.

      Hi Silver ARIS,

       

      Thanks for your message. Just sharing my direct experiences while living, going into semi-retirement in JB. Hope the information will be helpful for those who has the intention to live in JB...while working in Singapore.

      All the best to you and I know for sure...you will have a great life in JB as long you do not compare JB with Singapore because that will make you feel miserable. The last advise is learn to live in a BIG COUNTRY because it is different from tiny Singapore.

    • personnally i think retirement age is up to the individual capability to work. Given a choice of age 50 to 55 to choose working until 55 years old or retire before u reach 55. But we can always retire earlier if we have strong financial back up to retire comfortably

    • Everytime when I enter Singapore, I feel like a poor man. I find its expensive to spend my money in Singapore and I become like stingy to spend money in Singapore too lols. I would prefer to spend my money in Malaysia. I would rather save my Singapore Dollars and spend it in Malaysia lols.

      Sorry guys its a fact. Once you go into semi-retirement or full retirement in Malaysia or abroad, you will find its expensive to spend your money in Singapore.

    • I think got money can retire, no money cannot retire. It's also how you retire, the way you retire. Better plan what to do wth your brain and body when you retire. If retire got nothing to do, better not retire. If not, your brain and body will soon retire.
