There was a farewell dinner couple of days back for one of our collegues who would be leaving for Japan shortly. He had opted for a transfer to Japan...the main catch here is that he had just acquired Singapore citizenship and had bought a house here. Now he wud be relocating with his family to Tokyo.
During the dinner, we had an interesting discussions on the pros and cons of moving to Tokyo...the main point being that Tokyo was expensive than Singapore. Then it continued to the culture and workplace.
