We are going home: said:
We have been here about 2 years and have decided to go home - as it's just not worth living here anymore - true, the low tax rate is great - but we will now have to pay over SGD6,000 a month for a same place we have been paying SGD2500 for the past 2 years and our paychecks have not increased by that much over 2 years. Also with strong AUD against SGD, we are not really that better off in Singapore.
Also, the long working hours have started to cause a problem in our marriage (I was working almost 12 hours a day, almost every day at a bank).
