I know Singapore very well, especially about how expensive things are there.
I have been in Singapore about a million times, not only because I like being in such a futuristic and clean place, but also Singapore is the closest country which I can reach easily from Indonesia. In only about one and half hours I can be overseas, a luxury for people who live in an archipelago which is surrounded by the sea. Really, I have always dreamt about what if Indonesia were surrounded not by water, but by land, like Thailand in Southeast Asia, or like Spain in Europe. It would be easier for me to go around only with a wallet, a passport and the clothes on my back. Actually, yes, we share land borders with Malaysia and Brunei Darussalam, but, unfortunately, if I want to visit both countries, I must again go by plane to Borneo. The time to reach Borneo is longer than to Singapore, by the way.
