This gives hope to Singaporeans who never thought Swiss standards were possible.
This after those Singaporeans who achieved the Swiss standard of living emigrated to Switzerland to live for good.
One Singaporean, Jiak Hong, said: “I finally managed to secure the Swiss standard of living after hearing about it many, many years ago that it was a possibility for Singaporeans from all walks of life to achieve.”
“Now that I have finally achieved it, I hope this news about Singaporeans achieving the Swiss standard of living will bring cheer and hope to those who are still waiting for the Swiss standard of living to happen.”
However, not all Singaporeans who experienced the Swiss standard of living were prepared for the consequences and attendant problems it brought along with it.
Jin Wu Eng, another local who achieved the Swiss standard of living in Switzerland, said: “I have so much fresh air, fresh milk, fresh cheese, spare time, excess money, health care benefits, paid holidays and work-life balance, until I feel it is a bit unfair.”
“I am not sure how much leisure I can take before all of these Swiss standards get a bit stressful as I no longer know what to do with myself having spent two weeks here.”
