Default KL or Singapore ?

I have visited KL and Singapore on business many times but for no longer than a week at a time. I now have the possibility of living and working in either location as the company I am talking with offices in both locations.

If you have experienced either location which would be your preference in regards to cost of living, quality of living and general life style?

Thanks in advance

I lived and worked in Singapore 2005 to 2007. It has great infrastructure (though maybe not so good during the flashfloods yesterday ). We found it a good place to work/live but very high pressure. We were self-employed.

I've not lived in KL so cannot comment on that really. You've visited both places so I guess you can see the differences. Which do you prefer?

Isn't it very bad living in a place like Singapore when you're self-employed? Do you pay yourself an expat package?

Cannot quite see what you are getting at If you are self-employed (in any country) you can pay yourself what the hell you like, or not as the case may be. It's what the business makes that's important. But this has nothing whatsoever to do with KL or Singapore - that's just business practice.
