Recently, I went to Taiwan.
I was sitting at the window seat, and I personally observed almost the entire Taiwan on the plane, from the time the plane was at Kenting (the southern tip of Taiwan), all the way to the time it landed at Zhong Zheng International Airport (now known as Taoyuan International Airport).
It made me realized, everywhere is the same.
If we regard the sea as land, we can see that actually we are all on the same Earth. Singapore is no different than Taipei, Kuala Lumpur is no different than Kaohsiung, and Penang is no different than Tainan.
Therefore, migration is just a dream.
Taiwan has 健保, which is similar to our CPF.
Singapore got BTO.
Singapore salary is higher than Taipei salary.
After factoring in the costs of living, the affordability should be the same.
Instead of thinking of escaping, we should be thinking of how to achieve the right mathematical calculations.
After all, mathematics helps to optimise resources, everyone of us and everything around us are resources.
The reason why we feel suppressed is because we care too much about what other people think about us.
Although comparing with other people would ensure that we have standards, we should constantly remind ourselves that everyone's life goals are different.
No matter what, we need to keep moving forward.
Writing these has been a very healing experience. The above-mentioned is a chicken soup of life that I would like to share with everyone. You are welcome.
