A mix of over-populated and over-socialist cities, as always.

Well we have no choice. Most of Australia is desert and we are already expanding our cities. The problem is that everyone wants a house, a car and a backyard. They should just start building a whole heap of apartments and better transport.

Well, I guess if you want a fancy house and car, it is.

But then there isn't a middle ground in the US. You can get very good food in Singapore for under $5.
In the US, a trip to the cheapest restaurants sets you back $15.

The article's emphasis that there are no North American cities is the Top 20 is misplaced, because if the gist of the study is "How much does it cost to live like a North American?", then it's obvious that that would be easiest and cheapest exactly where you expect.
Food is cheaper and better in Asia. Singapore would be nicer than any US city.

I thought all heterosexual expatriate men only care about having snazzy bachelor pads and fast sports cars to impress the scores of exotic local girls that they can take home and fuck and tell stories of to fellow privileged douchebags at home when their 2 to 5 year stint is up.

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

Surprised there isn't MORE Australians cities tbh, It's ridiculous among other things how much petrol and alcohol cost here.

moby from the guys in my office i have heard that one of the best reasons to go to singapore is the easy availability of sarong boys (or sarong girls). is that true or just hype?

If you're not paying for something, then you're the product.

Let's just say that I don't think it's applicable to you since you're not white.
