I was born in Singapore but I'm Australian (moved here when I was a baby). I have been back there many times (as well as Malaysia where my father is from), and although I'm Australian there are some cool aspects about Singapore like the food.etc, wouldn't want to live there though.

Which country are you from (or were born in) and what do you most like about it? What do you least like about it?

I was born in Singapore, then lived in the United States, then lived in India, then back to the United States where I've been ever since.

My heritage is Asian Indian but I'm a Singaporean born and even to this day hold a Singaporean passport. I'm not an American citizen despite having lived in America practically all my life and everyone else in my family (mom, dad, two brothers) being American citizens.

Malaysian Chinese, from the northern part of the peninsula (and about an hr's drive from the Thai border).

What prompts you to stick to your Singaporean passport?

Just never got around to applying for citizenship when I was younger, I'm a green card holder and for me that's perfectly fine.

I consider myself a drifter, I've never lived in a place permanently before and have spent all my life moving between many places. In life I see myself living outside of the United States again.

It's a shame though, in my house of 5 people, I'm the only one that's not an American citizen.

That's weird. Didn't your parents bring you along when they were applying for citizenship?

Do you have any plans to return/retire in Singapore eventually in your life?

I assume you're under 21 (or was it 18)? All male Singaporean citizens must do national service unless they renounce, unless you have some other reason.

Are you a Penangite?

Not much in Danang itself but I loved Hue, Hoi An and surrounds. Central Vietnam is my favourite part of the country.

I used to get annoyed at the fact I wasn't born in Australia, and missed out by only a year, but now I don't really care, where you're born doesn't really matter, it's where you grow up.

I was born in the US but my dad is full Korean. Do I get to involve myself in this thread?
