    that study is for expatriates who are receiving expatriates contracts. it is bullshit that Singapore is more expensive than Oslo. I am from Singapore. Our food costs is sooooooooo much cheaper than Oslo and WAYYYYYY better quality than Oslo. Cars in Singapore are expensive but only because Government is trying to curb car ownership.
