Iskandar the cheaper alternative to Singapore? | SingaporeScene - Yahoo! via @yahoosg

Why Singaporean are not so excited about Iskandar? With high crime rate (most victims being chinese) and serious corruption on the other side of the cause way, most singaporean will think twice before they decide to settle down for long term. Singapore might be small, but I find it very convenience to go places. I can reach most of my destination in less than an hour. For me Singapore is safe, clean and convenience. These 3 things are far more important than the lower cost of living offered by Malaysia. I may have to work harder but I can have peace of mind that my family is safe and sound. I can park my car or bike at any parking lot for long hours without having to worry for their disappearance. But I welcome positive development on the other side of cause way, in terms of shopping and entertainment.
