Yes the grass is greener on the other side,,,,cars and houses dollar for dollar is cheaper than in Singkieland,,but please note the running costs can be just as high as singkieland that is why public tpt is important in big cities. The parking costs and toll etc in sydney is much worse than singkieland,,and compare city to city,,in many aspects sydney quality of life is worse than singkieland. In sydney,,,can afford to own a car,,but if yr house have no parking lot etc,,,good luck to u,,,,not as easy as it sounds. My frens live in sydney and part of his job requires him to fly,,,His wife drops him of at the train station and takes nearly 2 hr train ride to airport. When he comes back,,,take 2 hr train ride to his train station and his wife picks him up from there. And because he alights at the airport,,the ticket is 20bucks,...I am just stating the facts,,,,

Spore is small & a home is expensive so people have few options as the gov't controls the price of cars, housing,..etc
However Australia is different, no one is forcing your friend to stay in Sydney without a car park. He can move to some place with a car park, rent, or move to another city.

This may be inconvenient but doable,

in australia,people live in the suburbs,they have big houses,big yards and garages and fresh air and peace and quiet......suburbs are far away from the city so they need cars,those who live in the city in apartments dont need cars,they either take the tram or walk or bike......during weekends when the suburbanites go to town to party and enjoy,they either take the car and risk having to find a parking spot,or simply just take the train or tram.....

ur friend needs to fly,does he travel back and forth to the airport everyday?no right?the fact that his wife drops him off rather than drive him to the airport shows the airport is pretty damn far away which is normal in other countries that are not 30 by 40km like sg.......Melbourne itself is 20 times bigger than singapore,.a 2 hr train ride means the airport is probably at least 100km away thats why it cost 20 bucks......

australia cannot have worse quality of life than sinkieland......australia has massive amounts of land and living space,fantastic weather and nature.......that alone is worth more than the overrated,overcrowded,overinflated quality of life in sg.

u can have hdb worth 500k in sg land but i rather take a house worth 150k in aussieland anyday.

It is also a fact that there is such a thing as long term parking at Sydney airport. Cost AUD85 if you park from 15th to 18th October 2018. Four days or AUD21.25 per day.

https://airportexpresscarparking.com.au/services/

Your friend can drive to the airport himself and park the car there for four days while he travels to wherever for work. Come back, collect the car and drive back to home or office.

A brand new Toyota Corolla Altis costs only AUD 25,000.

https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/mazda/mx5/

That same car will cost SGD 88,000.

AUD to SGD is about one to one now.

Assuming your friend park at the airport for four days once every month = 12 x 85 = 1,020

Does that for 10 years (same as life of COE) = 10,200 = less than half the price of COE for Toyota Corolla which is about SGD 25,000 nowadays.

Buy or rent a house with car porch lah!

Oh by the way, after you buy the super expensive car in Singapore, still have to pay for expensive parking, road tax, etc and COE is only good for ten years!

In Spore the green grass is more costly:eek:

I have relatives in Melbourne & they own their homes: a car or two, includes parking & a swimming pool.
In Spore I can only afford a condo & like all HDB dwellers I have to pay a monthly conservancy fee.

Took a look at Thailand where condos are cheaper & the conservancy fee is about one third of what I pay in Spore

House price decline reaches a year, led by Melbourne and Sydney real estate falls
BY BUSINESS REPORTER MICHAEL JANDAUPDATED MON AT 10:17AM
Email Facebook Twitter WhatsApp

PHOTO
Melbourne home prices are continuing to fall faster than Sydney on a monthly basis.
ABC NEWS: DARRYL TORPY
Melbourne has firmly overtaken Sydney as the nation's weakest housing market, with both of Australia's biggest cities posting substantial monthly property price falls in September.
September was the 12th straight month in which the nation's housing prices fell, with Melbourne's 0.9 per cent decline leading the way downwards.
Sydney, Perth, Darwin and Adelaide also recorded price falls in the first month of spring, while Brisbane, Canberra and Hobart reported modest prices gains.
CoreLogic data shows that home prices nationally have fallen 2.7 per cent since peaking in September last year, with capital cities responsible for the losses (down 3.7 per cent) while regional areas had a 1.2 per cent gain over the past 12 months.
Over the past year, Sydney was the worst performing city, with prices off 6.1 per cent, followed by Darwin at 3.7 per cent, Melbourne (3.4 per cent) and Perth (2.8 per cent).
Not if, but by how much

Housing forecasts have gone from disagreement over whether home prices will fall to debates about how much they'll decline.
Brisbane, Adelaide and Canberra had property price gains at or below the general rate of inflation, while only Hobart had strong gains (up 9.3 per cent).
Regional markets were also starting to slide, with falls across non-metropolitan New South Wales (1.3 per cent), Victoria (0.2 per cent), Queensland (0.6 per cent), South Australia (0.3 per cent) and Western Australia (3.4 per cent) over the three months to September 30.
CoreLogic's head of research Tim Lawless told ABC News the property price downturn was "gathering a bit of momentum" in spring.
"Partly this is to do with tighter finance that we're seeing, particularly for investors," he said.
"But also, during spring we do see a real ramp up in stock levels.
"So we've seen quite a rise in advertised stock at a time when buyers are much thinner on the ground."​
This was exemplified over the weekend, when even preliminary auction clearance rates fell below 50 per cent in Sydney, while just above half the properties for auction in Melbourne on Saturday sold.
New home buyers' credit crunch

Home buyers could see their borrowing capacity cut by as much as 40pc due to reforms likely to be driven by the Hayne Royal Commission
"The grand finals and the long weekend were clearly a distraction for the markets, so volume numbers were very low," Mr Lawless observed.
"The trend overall across auction markets has been towards lower clearance rates."
Mr Lawless said he expected both auction clearance rates and property prices to continue easing into next year.
"It does look like tighter credit could potentially get a little bit tighter from here, considering the interim report from the banking royal commission," he said.
"That suggests that investor activity is likely to wind down further from here and we are likely to see values continuing to fall throughout the remainder of 2018 and probably through a large part of 2019."

Spore is physically a small place, so buying a home makes sense because even if you change employers you can still get to work. In large countries like Australia people may have to relocate to a new city where the jobs are. As you said they move where the jobs are.

So it makes more sense to rent rather to be an owner. Especially true for the younger Aussie who is single.

My relatives owned several homes which they rented out. They did this until it was more profitable to sell the properties.

although i have wheels i also need to take the train when i'm getting on a flight at sfo. 1st, drive to sfo is too long at 69km. 2nd, traffic jam on freeways almost all day, especially in the morning and evening. 3rd, uber or lyft ride is subjected to the same conditions in 1 and 2, plus it will cost at least $69 per ride. 4th, little to no parking at sfo after 6.9am. 5th, very difficult to get a ride from friends as they all live in suburbs in different cities at least 69km away. 6th, taking the train is too convenient and easy as it has a station inside the international terminal at the same level as the departure area. 6.9th, can catch up on all emails, messaging, and social media while riding the train without worrying about 1 to 5. i'm sure the folks in sydney face the same predicaments.

Sydney train chaos extends to the evening commute with major service disruption
BY PAIGE COCKBURN AND JAMIE MCKINNELL
UPDATED 30 MINUTES AGO
Email Facebook Twitter WhatsApp

TWITTER: @EMMABETH08
The evening commute is shaping to be a stressful and uncomfortable one for thousands of Sydneysiders, with delays and cancellations continuing from this morning.


Sydney Trains said trains were disrupted today due to 100 staff taking leave, as well as wet weather, with over 50 services cancelled in the morning peak, and 45 cancelled tonight.

For some it was be a day of double delays, with frustrated passengers trying to get home complaining of overcrowded platforms, trains too full to take on more passengers and services being cancelled at the last minute.

"Sydney Trains need to work something out, whatever they're attempting at Town Hall for platform 1 and 2 is beyond a joke and is making the crowding so much worse than normal," commuter Jessica Spookles said.

"Still confused why we are being made to pay for barely any service?"

Commuter Ben Wallace also said Town Hall was not coping with the crowds and he could not get out of the station.

"It was absolutely crazy. I almost saw two fights break out," he said.


"Town Hall is closing the entrance to platforms until people come up so the entire ground floor is a disaster," he said.

The T1 North Shore, T2 Inner West and Leppington, T3 Bankstown, T5 Cumberland and T8 Airport South Line are all currently impacted.

A Sydney Trains spokesperson says buses are replacing some services, particularly in the western suburbs.

"We're providing a regular service ... not to the timetable ... but we are closing the gaps between cancellations," the spokesman said.

"Buses are waiting to take people."

Extra customer service staff are in place at major stations such as Central and Town Hall to manage crowds.
It is not a stress-free commute for those on the roads either, with southbound traffic on the Hume Motorway backed up around 20 kilometres due to an earlier crash.

Traffic is heavy from St Andrews to Preston so motorists should allow plenty of extra travel time.

Transport Minister Andrew Constance has defended rail staff who do a "phenomenal" job in the face of significant population growth.

Mr Constance said counselling to help staff deal with a high number of tragedies on the rail network in the past fortnight contributed to rail problem.

ABC NEWS
Sydney Trains planned for 76 drivers to be sick, but about 40 additional staff were also off.

"The men and women driving our trains and crewing our trains are doing a phenomenal job," Mr Constance said.


Five years ago, the network supported 300 million passenger trips, but that has now increased by 100 million

Mr Constance said the trains still ran to over 90 per cent regularly, despite the "enormous challenges" in staff flexibility.

If you or anyone you know needs help:
Lifeline on 13 11 14
Kids Helpline on 1800 551 800
MensLine Australia on 1300 789 978
Suicide Call Back Service on 1300 659 467
Beyond Blue on 1300 22 46 36
Headspace on 1800 650 890
QLife on 1800 184 527
"In the last two weeks, for instance, we've had some terrible tragedies on our railway," he said.

"That has taken staff availability and affected staff availability. We have got staff being counselled."

"Those who seek to denigrate the railways are on the wrong track."

Over the past fortnight, there have been six deaths on the rail network, including accidental and self-harm incidents.

The department usually responds to one or two incidents each month.

Each incident involves mandated and optional leave for staff as they receive counselling.

Opposition promises fare refunds
Labor Leader Luke Foley
PHOTO NSW Labor Leader Luke Foley has launched a policy to refund late commuters.
NSW Opposition Leader Luke Foley used the delays to launch a Labor policy that would see commuters who are delayed 30 minutes refunded their full fare.

He said if the party wins next year's state election, commuters would have a 28-day window to claim the refund for any delays caused by "avoidable" problems on the rail network.

"At the moment, there's just no incentive on the people running the railways to do better," Mr Foley said.

"The objective here is not so much to refund people, but ensure there's not need for refunds."

Mr Foley said the refunds would not be issued for natural disasters such as flash flooding or fires, but the policy would apply to staff illness and mechanical failures.

The Opposition estimates it would cost between $5 million and $6 million over the forward estimates period.

Mr Foley accused the State Government of failing to recruit enough train drivers to cover shortages.

"The train system lurches from crisis to crisis," he said.

Rail Tram and Bus Union NSW Secretary Alex Claassens agreed the Government had not done enough to train staff in the short term.

"We are totally stretched to the limit. We are exhausted. We're cutting corners everywhere," he said.

Mr Claassens defended staff, saying blaming them for delays was a "cop out".

Sydney Trains internal report reveals inadequate systems in place for major emergencies and disruptions
BY MICHELLE BROWN
34 MINUTES AGO
A crowded train platform
PHOTO The internal report found the rail network had difficulty recovering from major incidents that caused "excessive business disruption".
THANH LU
Sydney Trains' ability to handle emergencies on its network needs "significant improvement", according to an internal report.

Key points:
Report commissioned by Sydney Trains found poor communication and training among staff
Report found conflicting definitions of what constituted major incident
Sydney Trains chief said 7 new managers hired in response to report
The July report, obtained by Fairfax Media under freedom of information laws and posted online, highlighted several shortcomings, including difficulties in responding to incidents on the network.

Rail network meltdowns that resulted in "excessive business disruption", such as those that occurred earlier in January, saw "indefinite delays" and severe overcrowding on platforms.

At the start of 2018, major delays and train cancellations lasted for days and sparked mass anger from commuters and public transport unions.

The report said the January incident was a demonstration of how current frameworks used by Sydney Trains were slow to recover from "unplanned incidents".

The report also found Sydney Trains had conflicting definitions of what constituted a major incident.

It found "limited governance" in processes for handling major incidents, meant responses could be inconsistent.

It also found a lack of communication between Sydney Trains' staff could slow the recovery from major disruptions.

Sydney Trains chief say 'weaknesses' addressed
Sydney Trains boss Howard Collins said the report was commissioned because the organisation wanted to understand its weaknesses.

"We reacted to that weakness," he said.

"We now have recruited seven new managers to actually be the key people who ensure that these incidents are managed in the correct way.

"I feel that our team would be able to respond and working alongside all the other emergency services to deal with our railway and to deal with it in a safe way for our customers."

PHOTO Sydney Trains chief executive Howard Collins said contingency plans were being implemented to improve response to major incidents.

TWITTER: SYDNEY TRAINS
The report also questioned the decision to centralise Sydney Trains' new multi-million-dollar management centre at Green Square in Sydney's inner-south.

It raised the prospect of a major disruption to the Sydney rail system if the centre had to be evacuated in an emergency.

"If in the event we have to leave the building, we have contingency plans which allows us to continue to operate from an alternative location," Mr Collins said.

"That's all been factored in and dealt with following the recommendations of the report."
