In a recent interview with Time magazine, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong acknowledged that the “options for Singaporeans to leave are plentiful”.

Singapore is “going to be depleted”, he cautioned, especially if the talented and successful ones move abroad.

There are already an estimated 200,000 Singaporeans living overseas.

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:

 

sian-half-auntie “Looking at the slate of MPs in parliament, there is no doubt the best and brightest already left for overseas a long time ago.”
Guo Hui, 46-year-old immigrations officer

 

sian-half-uncle “I guess the only reason I remained in Singapore was because I am never good enough to go overseas.”
Chu Guo, 66-year-old operations manager

 

happy-bird-girl “If Singapore is going to be depleted even after we opened the doors to so many foreigners, it means we have been importing trash.”
La Ji, 17-year-old artist-in-training
