I realize this; in life any choice we make, we gain something and we lose something. When we make this choice of an expat posting, all we are thinking about is the financial arbitrage, to make tonnes of money and be able to have a comfortable life back home. This is what most Indians think, when we leave India.

But once we start living here and we have our kids here, we forget that our kids dont have any experience or attachment with India. For them Singapore is home. So after living here for 15-20 years, if you are taking your kids back to India, you are doing a big disservice to them. I think that is the cost of the an expat assignment, which I never considered, when I made the move to Singapore. Other than that I have no regrets, I have absolutely loved my stay in Singapore and it is has been extremely fruitful.

Re: Is Singapore Losing Its Appeal?

I feel for those who can’t get PR after being here 5 or even 10 years, especially now because you have to tough it out financially during that time. Housing and schooling costs have gotten especially inhospitable in recent years with the 60% ABSD and MOE school fees (if you can secure a seat in local school). Primary school fees for non-ASEAN will exceed $1000 per month in 2026, and for secondary will surpass $2000 per month in 2025. The prospect of a foreigner coming to live in Singapore is now like a game of hot potato, you can’t hold on long before getting burned, especially if you have school aged kids.

Just keep giving it a try every so often. There's not much else to do at this point. You may strike gold and get through at some point. If not, at least your perspective will help the situation.

Thank you for the advice. Yes, we will keep trying, and hope the best will somehow happen one day. :)
