Why Singapore Population is Aging

I do not want to get married! Why? Cos there is just too much temptations, too much opportunities and too much to do that the moment I get myself tied down esp with children, I will not have time for myself. I never thought I would metamorphise into this but one can feel the aura of adventure and opportunities all around one in Singapore.


Females dressed to kill no matter where they go, to attract the richest men around. Sights of young, sweet, pretty female in big, old, luxury car driven by old, balding men is a common sight. SO what if they already have a partner, that does not mean they cannot sleep around or have casual sex partners. They even have a club that encourages swinging among couples and suprisingly, even girls who have partners turn up without their boyfriend to "sample" other guys. As the motto of the club goes: Variety is the spice of life! So why limit yourself to one. Even the sound of "happily ever after" chills their spine.


Reading the blog of this one femme fatale in Singapore called "Babe in Toyland" (be warned of a lot of sexual innuendos and encounters here) confirms my bi-curious identity in which I do get attracted to female sometimes. Only certain females who have a dominant and strong personality with pouty lips and killer bod. Give me a Chinese version of Angelina Jolie or Evangeline Lilly of 'Lost' fame anytime. So don't be suprise if I organize a all-female bash one day to identify those who are bi-sexual and potentially interesting enough to "make sensual love" with. ;) If you do not experiment with everything in life, what is the meaning then?


So, what about marrying and having babies as a different experience and experiment in life? That will just have to wait till I have tried everything that having a husband and baby will stop me. And that includes work, career and travel opportunities.
Call me selfish but this mindset is the reason why Singapore is facing the dillema of an aging population. And we are not only talking abt Singapore, the same things are happening to HK and Japan as well.


Impacts:

  1. Singapore is lossening rules to allow more foreigners to work in Singapore. EP is now on the employee basis rather than employer. Non-PRs are sent inivitations to be a PR. Couples are getting bonuses on their first & 2nd babies and tax rebates from the 3rd babies onwards.
  2. Institutions in Japan are facing a problem of lacking students to fill their university intakes that they have to target foreign students incessantly.


The poor government but they just have to live with us being "single and lovin' it" till we have 'sampled' everything. It was their fault to make us so liberalised and to provide so much form of entertainment anyway.
(P/s. This might not be an exact representation of me. Speaking from a Singaporean gal's pt of view.)

    I think it is that Singaporeans are at the forefront of experiencing this tirade of Western influence while in LA or NY, they have gone through that phase to know how to balance. Besides, Singaporeans are more pragmatic ppl.

    Raising a child in singapore: tuition classes everyday; ballet, music and art classes every weekend; modelling and acting classes also if there is still time; must be top in class, must get into the best classes in the best schools, must be cleverer/prettier/better achiever than neighbour's/sibling's/far-off-relative's children... etc.

    If I am singaporean also I don't want to have babies la!

    hahaha.

    p/s: I can't wait to meet you

    The EP issue is not entirely accurate.

    You've got to be working for a few years first in Singapore, as a previous normal EP holder.

    Noobs working first time in Singapore won't get that mobile EP.
