2023.06.04 19:41 johnandaurora Let's meet.

This post is to let my boyfriend from 1600miles away know, 'I MISS HIM'. Unlike any normal couple, we are definitely not the regulars. We are the couple who didn't acknowledge each other that we are couple, still do everything that a couple does.
Last time I seen him, I wanna spend more time with him like traveling, trekking, listening to music together, couple shopping, go to malls, theatre, theme parks, restaurants, game centers. Any place with him. I wanna stay with him, near him, around him, while he doesn't feel the same that much.
He is younger and wiser than me (tho, it should be other way around) , he makes more sense and takes good decisions, I listen to him most times. When I said, I will catch flight to visit him, he denied. I can't feel helpless when he says no.
Being in long distance, makes me furious about missing so many things, Is it the tight hugs? Is it the long kiss? Is it the comfort? Is it the sense of touch/feel? Is it the way he looks? Is it the way he makes me feel?
Its everything about him. I wanna stay close to him. This 1600 miles could be covered in 3-4hrs flight. I need a yes from him, will he say yes...?

Missing side quests in Fractured peaks
Hi guys, I am struggling to find remaining side quests in Fractured Peaks. As you can see I have almost everything done except dungeons and even there I am still missing one :D . Are these quests tied to dungeon and why are devs of multibilion company so bad that they didnt put a journal of completed quests into game ? I have no idea where to find the quests at this point since I have searched whole map...

2023.06.04 19:06 toebeakoh Advice 2007 Cooper damage unknown

Hi Mini Cooper People. I’m about 175 miles from home, 20 miles from the nearest town with an auto repair shop, and am safe with food and lodging. I hit a root near the front center or front left of the undercarriage of my car. I drove about 100 more feet then parked. The front end of my car is maybe 3 inches lower than normal. I walked back to inspect the root situation and picked up the pieces of plastic in the linked photo. I called the nearest European auto shop and it opens at 9:30 on Monday am, it’s like a 20 mile tow. I’m trying to figure out if it’s a better idea to use my 1 AAA tow to get to town to fix the car and drive home, or have AAA take me the 175 miles home to the shop I frequent, to have it repaired there. My concern is that the shop 20 miles from here will not have the part(s) I need and that I’ll be stranded here until they arrive. Advice smart people please and thank you <3

2023.06.04 19:02 InUSbutnotofit Back to the store

Back to the store
Stopped at a jeweler’s (local, he’s been in business for years) yesterday for 2 rings we needed appraisals for. Jeweler also easily popped a center diamond (only approx 1/3 carat) out if an old ring setting which was loose. He set the loose diamond into an earring for my BF to wear. 14k yellow gold; didn’t cost but $108. 🚩He utilized a “used” setting; probably bought as scrap. My BF decided to buy a couple of pair of 14k earrings as well: one set diamonds, the other sapphires. ( I happen to love a brush finish). We did not have our savvy shoppers hats on, and completed the transactions w/out really taking a close look at what we were buying. Shop isn’t open again until Tuesday. Dropped almost 4 Gs in this place. Infuriating, but only ourselves to blame for being impulsive and for not being thorough. And, of course, the store does not open up again until Tuesday. Why why why??!! Wah Wah Wah! Thanks for allowing me to vent.

2023.06.04 18:18 Defiant_Sweet_8708 Unveiling the Beauty Arsenal: Mastering Makeup Magic with Large Powder Brushes

When it comes to flawless makeup application, the right tools make all the difference. Among the must-haves in any makeup kit is a large powder brush. These versatile brushes are designed to evenly distribute and blend powder products, such as setting powder, bronzer, and blush, for a seamless and airbrushed finish. In this comprehensive guide, we will explore the benefits, uses, and key considerations when choosing large powder brushes. Whether you're a makeup enthusiast or a professional artist, read on to discover how these brushes can revolutionize your beauty routine.
  1. The Power of a Large Powder Brush: Large powder brushes, as the name suggests, feature a larger surface area and fluffy bristles, allowing for effortless and even application of powder products. Their size enables quick and efficient coverage, making them ideal for dusting setting powder all over the face, neck, and décolletage. The soft, fluffy bristles ensure that the powder is diffused evenly, preventing any patchiness or cakiness.
  2. Versatile Uses: Large powder brushes are incredibly versatile and can be used for various purposes:
a. Setting Powder Application: Applying a translucent setting powder is essential to lock in your foundation and concealer, ensuring long-lasting wear. A large powder brush enables you to lightly dust the powder all over your face, providing a smooth and matte finish.
b. Bronzer and Blush Application: These brushes are perfect for adding warmth and dimension to the face. Whether you're contouring, adding bronzer, or applying blush, the large powder brush effortlessly blends the product, giving you a natural, sun-kissed look.
c. Body Powder Application: Don't limit yourself to just your face! Large powder brushes are great for applying body powders, shimmering powders, or setting sprays on your neck, shoulders, and décolletage for a beautiful glow and subtle fragrance.
  1. Factors to Consider When Choosing a Large Powder Brush: a. Bristle Material: Opt for synthetic bristles, as they are cruelty-free, easier to clean, and do not absorb as much product as natural hair bristles.
b. Bristle Density: Look for a brush with densely packed, fluffy bristles that are soft to the touch. This ensures an even application and prevents any harsh lines or streaks.
c. Handle Design: A sturdy and comfortable handle is essential for easy maneuverability during application. Consider brushes with ergonomic handles for a comfortable grip, especially if you'll be using them for extended periods.
d. Shedding and Longevity: Choose a brush from a reputable brand known for high-quality craftsmanship. Quality brushes are less likely to shed and will last longer, making them a worthwhile investment.
  1. Tips for Using Large Powder Brushes: a. Tap off Excess Product: Before applying any powder to your face, gently tap the brush on the back of your hand or lightly shake off the excess product. This ensures a light and buildable application.
b. Circular Motion: When applying powder to the face, use a gentle circular motion for even coverage. Start from the center of your face and work your way outwards to avoid harsh lines.
c. Clean Regularly: To maintain the performance and longevity of your large powder brush, clean it regularly with a gentle brush cleaner or mild soap. This will remove any product buildup, bacteria, and oils, ensuring a smooth and hygienic application.
d. Store Properly: Store your large powder brush in a clean and dry area, away from humidity and direct sunlight. Proper storage preserves the shape and integrity of the bristles, prolonging the life of the brush.
Conclusion: Large powder brushes are an essential tool for achieving a flawless makeup look. With their ability to evenly distribute powder products, these versatile brushes ensure a seamless and natural finish. When choosing a large powder brush, consider factors such as bristle material, density, handle design, and longevity. By following proper techniques and maintenance, you can make the most of your large powder brush and elevate your makeup game to new heights. So go ahead, invest in a high-quality large powder brush and experience the transformative power it brings to your beauty routine.

2023.06.04 18:16 SuperrHornet18 I'm having trouble with assigning a random price for each "basket", if there are multiple of the same variables, they will have the same price, instead of random

Main class:

PImage imgBg, imgNote;
int currMonth;
float marketW;
float marketH;
Table cropTable;
ArrayList cropOptions = new ArrayList();
Basket[][] market;
ArrayList sales = new ArrayList();

void setup() {
size(1020, 580);
initMarket(6, 5);

void loadData() {
imgNote = loadImage("note.png");
imgBg = loadImage("wood.png");
currMonth = month();
marketW = imgBg.width;
marketH = height;

void loadCropOptions() {
String filename = "crops.csv";
cropTable = loadTable(filename, "header");

for (TableRow row : cropTable.rows()) {
String cropName = row.getString("Crop");
String imageName = cropName.toLowerCase() + ".png";
Crop crop = new Crop(cropName, imageName, 0.0, 0.0); // Set marketPrice and priceMultiplier to default values

void initMarket(int numRows, int numCols) {
float basketW = marketW / numCols;
float basketH = marketH / numRows;
market = new Basket[numRows][numCols];

for (int row = 0; row < numRows; row++) {
for (int col = 0; col < numCols; col++) {
float x = col * basketW;
float y = row * basketH;
market[row][col] = new Basket();
market[row][col].display(x, y);

void draw() {

void drawMarket() {
image(imgBg, 0, 0);
float basketW = marketW / market[0].length;
float basketH = marketH / market.length;

for (int row = 0; row < market.length; row++) {
for (int col = 0; col < market[row].length; col++) {
float x = col * basketW;
float y = row * basketH;
Basket basket = market[row][col];
basket.display(x, y);

void drawMonth() {
String[] arrMonths = {"January", "February", "March", "April", "May", "June", "July", "August", "September", "October", "November", "December"};

rect(width * 0.85, 50, 150, 60);

textAlign(CENTER, CENTER);
text(arrMonths[currMonth-1], width * 0.85, 50);

void drawNote() {
textAlign(LEFT, BOTTOM);
float noteX = marketW + 5;
float noteY = 130;
image(imgNote, noteX, noteY);
translate(noteX + 48, noteY + 86);
for (int i = 0; i < sales.size(); i++) {
String saleText = sales.get(i);
text(saleText, 0, i * 25);

void mousePressed() {
if (mouseX < marketW && mouseY < marketH) {
float basketW = marketW / market[0].length;
float basketH = marketH / market.length;

int row = int(mouseY / basketH);
int col = int(mouseX / basketW);

if (row >= 0 && row < market.length && col >= 0 && col < market[row].length) {
Basket basket = market[row][col];
Crop crop = basket.getCrop();

if (crop != null) {
float price = crop.getMarketPrice();
String saleText = "- " + crop.getName() + " : " + nf(price, 1, 2) + " euro";

void keyPressed() {
if (key == CODED) {
switch (keyCode) {
case RIGHT:
switchMonth(currMonth + 1);
case LEFT:
switchMonth(currMonth - 1);

void switchMonth(int newMonth) {
currMonth = newMonth;
if (currMonth > 12) currMonth = 1;
if (currMonth <= 0) currMonth = 12;

void fillBaskets() {
float basketW = marketW / market[0].length;
float basketH = marketH / market.length;

for (int row = 0; row < market.length; row++) {
for (int col = 0; col < market[row].length; col++) {
Basket basket = market[row][col];
basket.setRandomPrice(); // Set random price for each basket
basket.display(col * basketW, row * basketH);

Crop getRandomCrop() {
if (cropOptions.size() > 0) {
int index = int(random(cropOptions.size()));
return cropOptions.get(index);
return null;

Basket class:

class Basket {
PImage imgBasket;
float price;
Crop crop;

Basket() {
imgBasket = loadImage("basket.png");
crop = null; // Set initial crop to null

if (cropOptions.size() > 0) {
int index = int(random(cropOptions.size()));
Crop randomCrop = cropOptions.get(index);

void setRandomPrice() {
if (crop != null) {
float randomPrice = random(0.2, 3);

void setCrop(Crop crop) {
this.crop = crop;
if (crop != null) {

void display(float x, float y) {
image(imgBasket, x, y);

// Display the crop image on top of the basket
if (crop != null) {
PImage cropImage = loadImage(crop.getImageName());
float imageX = x + imgBasket.width / 2;
float imageY = y + imgBasket.height * 0.3;
float imageSize = imgBasket.width / 2;
image(cropImage, imageX, imageY, imageSize, imageSize);

// Display the price tag
textAlign(CENTER, CENTER);
float xText = x + imgBasket.width / 2;
float yText = y + imgBasket.height * 0.75 + 2;
rect(xText - 15, yText - 10, 30, 20);

if (crop != null) {
// Use market price instead of crop price
float cropPrice = crop.getMarketPrice();
text(nf(cropPrice, 1, 2), xText, yText);
} else {
// Display zero price when there is no crop
text("0.00", xText, yText);

Crop getCrop() {
return crop;

and lastly, crop class:

class Crop {
String name;
String imageName;
float marketPrice;
float priceMultiplier;

Crop(String name, String imageName, float marketPrice, float priceMultiplier) { = name;
this.imageName = imageName;
this.marketPrice = marketPrice;
this.priceMultiplier = priceMultiplier;

String getName() {
return name;

String getImageName() {
return imageName;

float getMarketPrice() {
return marketPrice;

float getPriceMultiplier() {
return priceMultiplier;

void setMarketPrice(float marketPrice) {
this.marketPrice = marketPrice;

void setPriceMultiplier(float priceMultiplier) {
this.priceMultiplier = priceMultiplier;

Essentially, I've been struggling to get the same type of crops to show different (random) prices in the baskets. If the given month has multiple of the same crops, they appear with identical prices, but they need to be random.
I've been troubleshooting this issue for a few hours, but with no luck, so I would appreciate help with an explanation of what I'm doing wrong.

2023.06.04 17:07 radonnikodym [WTS] semi-customized bangers: SBD, Olamic, McNees, Benchmade, Tactile

Hi swap!!
Putting up some unique ones for those of us who couldn't make it to blade show. Pics and timestamp below. I prioritize sales today and take PayPal ff, Venmo, or Zelle with NO NOTES.
Ordered roughly by retail price.

First one I guess is not customized-- catch and release Mini Evo special edition by Sharper By Design damasteel/timascus. I had to try it because the blade and inlay are absolutely gorgeous, and the action is silky with incredible acoustics. As some of you know, I just can't get into flippers as much as I've tried. I got it in brand new condition here and only admired it and took the vids myself. Comes with everything; passing it along at SV $550 shipped priority

Second is a lovely Olamic Whippersnapper, the latest bolster lock variant. Sick contrast between the fat carbon and the frosted finish on the bolsters (which costs extra on top of the $700 base price on these). Most importantly, it has a beautiful regrind by Transparent Knives, redone swedge and everything and insane behind the edge. The complete details are in this post though I wasn't quick enough to snag it directly then-- I traded fancy full TI xm18 plus cash for this from next owner. Seen some light carry but no particular wear to speak of. Comes with everything; asking SV $590 shipped priority

Third is a Mac2 3.5", my favorite knife model out there. This one has an amazing custom ano and I got it off the FB group; started as a stonewashed frag with Magnacut blade, and is currently on skiff bearings, has a McNees Mythosaur clip, and of course has completely refinished scales. Assume warranty is void for sure, but the action is incredible and it just looks sick. Comes with box and COA, original bearings, and skiff thick washers! Please note this one has seen use, you can see a few marks on the scales and blade, which has been sharpened and is quite slicey. Asking SV $550 shipped priority, less than what I paid and how much would have gone into the build

Fourth is a Benchmade Mini Crooked River from the Custom shop. This one is SWEET, and I think was somewhat of a legend on reddit. It belonged to hzd_joker who put a beautiful mirror edge on it after it got a hollow regrind by BGM. Carbon fiber scales and the blade is 20CV (not sure bench made even offers this option in the custom line anymore) and was coated; after the regrind it has a sweet two-tone look. Cutting with this one is a pleasure; the video shows some faint lines from use on blade. The body has some wear as pictured, as I loved to carry this one and so did previous owner. Centering is a hair off but quite good for Benchmade. Don't let the word Mini fool you; this one's a full sized knife. Probably would cost about $400 from custom shop before regrind etc, asking SV $325 shipped priority and comes with original bench made box and accessories.

Lastly is a tactile rockwall thumbstud I got on the swap. It has the golf texture with magnacut blade, plus a blue and purple ano job that looks awesome. I just find it a little small; I like some heft to my knives (bugout is too light and stout guys like Mac2 are perfect). Looks sweet though basically a catch and release from me. Asking SV $225 shipped
Thanks for reading this book

It’s surreal and beautiful that our love for dancing and singing has been put out as albums and performances to the world as fromis_9. If it weren’t for our strong desire and support system from flover, I think it would have been a lot more difficult to become a better team so fast.'

2023.06.04 16:37 frugalgenie Question

So I purchased a cosplay off of Aliexpress that I thought had good reviews. However, when it arrived it was damaged. I contacted the seller asking about their refund/return policy. They offered to send me a replacement for the part of the cosplay costume that was broken they just needed my address. So I send them a picture of my order confirmation with my address. However they are saying I need to place a new order and purchase a listing thats a few cents in order for them to process sending the replacement. I wasn't sure if this is how getting replacements work or I should just file a dispute in the Aliexpress help center as this is my first time shopping with Aliexpress?

2023.06.04 16:07 srddave Anyone Remember Merchandise Mart?

I vaguely remember stopping here with my grandmother when we would drive to see her sister in Wilmington. In my kid’s mind I remember that it was a stately kind of strip mall with a big Philly department store that I can’t recall and a fancy restaurant that my grandma would take me to. I also remember thinking the name “Merchandise Mart” was pretty impressive.
There is very little info about it online, but I recently was in the area at a Big Lots in a really sad, run-down shopping center and I am almost certain it is the same one. It’s on Governor Prinz Blvd and just about the only store there is Big Lots. Does anyone know is this is the same shopping center, and if so, what happened to it? And what the heck happened to this neighborhood? The stretch of highway where this almost abandoned mall is seems to have seen much better days.

2023.06.04 15:45 DifficultBroccoli444 Looking for a kind human to pick up a hat from Vatnajökull National Park and ship it to me in the US when they get back!

Hi all, my boyfriend and I just got back from Iceland and we absolutely loved it. We went to Vatnajökull National Park where my boyfriend saw a hat he really liked. We went on a hike, got back, and the gift shop was closed. We were already behind schedule so we couldn’t stay another night, and my boyfriend is very upset he didn’t get the hat. His birthday is at the end of June, so I was wondering if someone can pick up the hat if they plan on stopping by the park and ship it to me once they get back to the US?
It’s found in the Skaftafellsstofa visitor center (address: Skaftárstofa Klausturvegur 10 880 Kirkjubaejarklaustur) When you walk in, turn right, there is a wall of hats. It’s the light blue one with the park logo! It would mean the world to me if someone could buy it for me and ship it to me so I can give it to him for his birthday. I will pay for the hat, shipping, and buy you a souvenir as a thank you (venmo or PayPal)
Please let me know if anyone can do this for me. It would make him so happy and be the perfect birthday present. Thank you so much!

2023.06.04 15:43 daryyyl My Personal Experience: A Singaporean Living in Bangkok

TL;DR: A Singaporean’s comparison and experience of living in Bangkok, AMA.
Recently seen a lot of posts about moving from Singapore to another country and thought I would share my own experiences about moving from Singapore to Bangkok and some pros and cons of each location.
Please kindly take note that this is all from my personal experience and knowledge and may not apply to everyone.

I (30M) first experienced living and working in Bangkok due to an internship. The internship was mandatory but the location was not specified. I chose Bangkok having never lived there before and ended up liking it so decided to do another internship in Bangkok the following year. After completion, I managed to land a full time job in Bangkok and have been living in Bangkok for 7.5 years now. I am in the hospitality industry.

In order to stay legally in Thailand, you’ll need to be on the proper visa. You could come in on visa exemption and then do visa runs, but in the long run, it is not a viable option especially since immigration is cracking down on visa runs.
I have listed essentially the easiest visa’s to obtain to live in Thailand legally.
- Non-Immigrant B: Get hired by a company in Thailand, where they will issue you with a work permit and you are allowed to legally work in the role that is written in the work permit. The visa will be valid so long as you are employed.
- Non-Immigrant ED: Enroll into a language school to learn Thai or join a Muay Thai gym. Typically the visa lasts for a year. Working on this visa is illegal.
- Non-Immigrant O-A & O-X: Retirement visa, you need to be 50 years and above. Working on this visa is illegal.
- Non-Immigrant O (Thai Spouse): Get married to a Thai national. The visa is valid as long as you are legally married. Working on this visa is legal.
- Elite Visa: Essentially a paid visa that allows you to stay legally from 5 years up to 20 years. The price starts at THB 600K (one-time fee) up to THB 2M. Working on this visa is illegal.

Work Opportunities:
From the above mentioned visas, I only have experience with the Non-Immigrant B visa as I am employed in Bangkok. I may decide to change to the Non-Immigrant O (Thai Spouse) visa when I get married to my Thai partner next year.
Getting employed in Thailand is a route that a lot of people choose when first deciding to move to Thailand. There are essentially 2 options that someone could choose:
- Employee: Get hired by a Thai company. There are a list of prohibited jobs for foreigners in Thailand such as hairdresser, Thai massage, tour guide, legal services (you can be a consultant though). Legally there is also a minimum salary for foreigners to earn. For Singaporeans, the minimum salary / month is THB 45K however there are also loopholes in order for employees to avoid paying this much. This minimum salary does not apply to teaching. Some of the most popular jobs for foreigners are in education (teacher), tech, marketing, consulate / embassy, diving instructor, hospitality and work for an MNC.
- Business Owner: Opening your own business is another way to work in Thailand. The most popular registration choice for foreigners is to open a limited company. You will only have ownership of 49% of the company, and the remaining 51% needs to be owned by a Thai person. Many foreigners will put the 51% in their Thai spouse’s name. It is also possible to have 2 Thai’s own the 51% (25.5% each) so that the foreigner still has majority ownership. You can also then apply for a work permit however need to have four Thai workers per foreigner employed and THB 2 M in capital.

Salary & Income:
In general, the salary in Thailand is significantly lower than in Singapore, however the cost of living is also more expensive. My first salary in Bangkok was gross THB 45K / month, take home pay was around THB 38K. That is roughly S$1,500. I lived a mostly Thai lifestyle, with little to no savings each month. Thankfully I am now on a salary higher than if I was in the same position in Singapore. I would advise that a salary of THB 50K / month is the minimum that any Singaporean should be willing to take in order to move to Bangkok. Anything THB 100K / month and you’ll be able to live comfortably on a mixed of local + foreigner lifestyle so long as you have no kids or don’t intend to send them to international school.
The best is if you end up on an expat contract and you will have your basic salary (usually paid in USD) + housing allowance + yearly flight tickets back home + international school fees for your kids paid for. Obviously this is subject to the company but I have heard of people also getting transport allowance, grocery shopping allowance, company car and driver, live-in maid, etc.

Working Life:
Tasks in Singapore get done. And they get done fast. Singapore is efficient and as much as Singaporeans love queuing (for food), they also don’t like waiting. However, working in Singapore can be very competitive. The so called ‘rat race’ starts the moment you enter working life. Depending on the industry, overtime is often expected. The “kiasu” mentality in Singaporeans often causes the over-competitiveness at the workplace.
Working life in Thailand is quite the opposite of Singapore. Thai employees generally take things slower. Decisions that can be made in 1 day in Singapore, can take 1 month in Thailand. Many Thai workers just want to do their 8-10 hours a day, grab a beer after work, go home to sleep and then repeat the next day. Thai employees are also generally less competitive compared to Singaporeans, thus as a Singaporean working in Bangkok, I am able to stand out amongst my Thai colleagues and was able to progress much faster in my career compared to if I was working in the competitive Singaporean environment. In Thailand, “saving face” is very important especially at the management level. The practice of “saving face” is not something that many westerners understand and are used to, thus is often a disadvantage to them.

Condo, Apartments & Houses:
To be honest, I cannot speak about the Singapore property market and prices because I have no firsthand experience. I have never bought or rented any property in Singapore before. I can only share the prices in Bangkok for you guys to compare.
In Bangkok, a typical 1 bedroom condo (30 SQM to 35 SQM) can be found for THB 10K (S$388) to THB 15K (S$582) per month. These condos are typically within a 10 – 20 minute BTS/MRT ride into the city center. The further out you go, the cheaper condos are. Alternatively, the closer you are to the city center, the more expensive the condo’s get.
Local apartments are even cheaper and can be rented under THB10K per month. Some apartments even have rooms for rent that are THB 3000 (S$116) per month, however the room is usually quite small (20 SQM), has no kitchen, sometimes no hot water, sometimes no AC, and is in a very local area of Bangkok. It is literally a room with a bed and a bathroom inside.
There are also houses for rent in Bangkok. There are 2 major types of houses: the first are standalone houses and the second are called townhouses (essentially a house in a gated community). These can range from THB 25K (S$970) to more than THB 100K (S$3880) per month depending on the size, location, age, etc.
Alternatively, if you decide to, foreigners can also legally purchase condos under certain regulations. Every condo has a foreigner quota which essentially every condo need to be 51% majority owned by a Thai national. So if a condo has 100 units, minimum 51 units need to be owned by a Thai national. If the current condo only has 50 units owned by a Thai, then a foreigner is unable to purchase a unit in that condo project until 1 more unit is owned by a Thai. Condos can be bought starting from THB 1M (S$38.8K) to THB 100M (S$3.8M) depending on the size and location.
Owning land in Thailand by foreigners is not allowed. There are some ways and loopholes of getting around it such as setting up a business in Thailand. Lots of foreigners who marry a Thai national end up putting the land under their partners name and by getting a usufruct / right of superficies, it protects the foreigners in the sense that their partner would be unable to sell the land without the permission of the foreigner. It is honestly quite complicated and I personally went through this route.
The townhouse that I purchased cost around THB 12.5M (S$485K) and is roughly 250 SQM (2690 SQFT), with 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, with a decent sized garden and garage large enough for 2 cars. It is in a good location (not in the city center) with a 20 minute drive into the city center. With S$485K, I am not sure if you could even buy a 2 or 3 bedroom HDB in a not so desired district in Singapore.

Singapore has hawker centers while Bangkok has street food. Street food in Bangkok is cheap, usually starting from THB 40. Singapore hawker centers are relatively affordable although there have been a significant increase in prices over the past couple of years. There are also a wide variety of eateries from food courts to Michelin Starred restaurants, with lots of different types of cuisines in both cities. Prices in both cities can range from cheap to crazy expensive, so it really depends on what kind of budget and lifestyle you have.

Cost Of Living:
It is well known that Singapore has an expensive cost of living, while the cost of living in Bangkok is cheaper. It is not S$1 for a one beer kind of cheap, but it’s definitely cheaper than Singapore. I have not lived in Singapore for the past 9 years so I am not in touch with the current prices in Singapore. So I will just share the prices in Bangkok.
Gym memberships in Bangkok are usually around THB 1000 (S$38) to THB 1500 (S$58) a month. A foot / Thai massage cost THB 250 (S$10) to THB 350 (S$13) per hour, a ticket in the cinema is about THB 250 (S$10). A drink in a bar is around THB 150 (S$6) to THB 250 (S$10) depending on the type of establishment. I could go on and on but in generally most things are cheaper in Bangkok than in Singapore.

- Public Transport: Public transport in Singapore is reliable. Living in Singapore, it is generally convenient to take the bus and MRT for transport.
In Bangkok, if you live in the city center you will have no issue using only the BTS & MRT to get around. Buses are not reliable due to the sheer amount of traffic. Alternatively, using motorcycle taxis are also a viable option for short to medium distances. If you lived in the suburbs or even other provinces such as Chiang Mai & Phuket, you’ll either have to buy / rent a car or motorcycle, use Grab or a songthaew (shared pickup truck).
- Motorcycle Ownership: Purchasing your own motorcycle is also a popular option. A new Honda Click 150 can be bought for around THB 61K (S$2.3k).
- Car Ownership: The cheapest first hand car in Singapore is roughly around S$80,000 to S$90,000 (THB 2M to THB 2.3M). On top of that, Singapore’s COE in May (1st bidding) for CAT A closed at S$101,001 (THB 2.5M).
In Thailand, cars start around THB 500K. An entry level Mercedes Benz A-Class will cost around THB 1.9 M (S$74,000). Cheaper cars in Thailand do come with a price and that is the traffic in Bangkok. During peak period, expect your 15 minute car ride to extend to 1 hour or even more depending on your location within the city. Traffic in other provinces is generally much better compared to Bangkok.

Social Circle:
In Singapore, you generally already have a group of friends that you met since high school / university / army (for guys).
Unless you have family or friends already living in Thailand, you’ll need to start from scratch. The easiest way to make friends is usually from your workplace. Another popular option is to use apps such as and Tinder for dating. Some may find it hard at first to make friends with Thai people due to the language barrier if you do not speak Thai and they do not speak much English.

In Singapore, English is widely spoken. Mandarin Chinese, Tamil and Malay are also used. It is easy to communicate with 99% of the population.
In Thailand, English is not widely used by everyone especially in the areas where there are no/less tourists. Signs (food, road, etc) can often be only written in Thai.

Domestic Travel:
Unless you consider taking the MRT to Sentosa domestic travelling, Singapore does not offer much domestic travel. In Thailand, a 1.5 hour plane ride can take you to Chiang Mai, Phuket, Koh Samui, Khon Kaen, etc. While a 2 hour car drive can take you to Pattaya, Hua Hin, Kanchanaburi, Ayutthaya, etc for quick weekend getaways. Singapore however, is a major hub in Asia and many international flights use Changi Airport as a hub. I also personally prefer Singapore Airlines to Thai Airways.

Safety & Crime:
Singapore is generally extremely safe. Chances of you getting robbed by knife are slim to none. In Thailand, it is also generally safe. Be smart and do not put yourself into dangerous situations and you’ll generally be fine. I have never gotten pickpocketed or robbed or scammed or anything of similarity over my years of living here.

This is the topic that I prefer not to talk about. In short:
- The Singapore government is stable.
- I have no comment regarding the Thai government, except let’s see what happens in the next couple of months.

TL;DR: A Singaporean’s comparison and experience of living in Bangkok, AMA.

And that’s pretty much it. I do apologize for this being so long. I tried my best to share as much as possible without overdoing it. This post got taken down in askSingapore , so hopefully it doesn't break any rules of this subreddit.
If anyone has any further questions, please feel free to AMA.
