Migration

Postby daisyt » Mon Sep 26, 2011 9:59 pm

If you are in the middle income working class and consider migration, which country would you choose and why?

I have heard of a friend who has worked in China for many years and now seriously consider migrate to China.

If i ever seriously consider to, my choice would be Taiwan. I prefer a Chinese society. But so far, have not thought about it lah. :smile:

Insider, this article interesting!! I think the idea of the friend is not that 回到祖国的怀抱 mentality.

To me, China is too big to live in. Taiwan would be a reasonable size :lol:

Anyway, recently heard of quite a few friends talking about migrate to Australia but angmo tea is just not my preference.

for US$500k investment in approved projects, whole family can get US green card straight away, and after 24 months, can become citizens. At end of 5 years, the US$500k will be return, principal and interest.

such are US government approved green card program, run by many states in US

Canada even cheaper

I dun think I can make it in non-english speaking countries.

I doubt I will ever migrate. Retire out of Singapore, maybe. Likely countries will be Aus or NZ. Our neighbour up north does hold some attraction due to the lower cost of living. Might even consider Thailand. Haha.

I have friends who bought villas in Bali and some in Thai. They will go for short breaks there now but their plan will be to retire to these places eventually.

I like Singapore too much to go anyway. I will stay put here.
Each time I return from a holiday (except for Japan), I would really appreciate Singapore even more.
But when I retire, I hope to tour Japan frequently.
I really love their food, culture and people.

my in-laws talking about retiring in JB and buying property there bec 'can stretch the money cos standard of living is lower' . My husband also agree and keep telling me that's a good idea but I am more concern about safety and convenience more than anything. They even suggest buying houses side by side for security reasons and that irritating SIL and her kids can stay with us :siao: :siao: :slapshead: :stupid: :nunchuk: :stompfeet: :mad:
