Home vs Here

My teammates ajak I over to their houses for home cook meals - entah last week - i was so homesick & sad & lonely. They were so nice to have me over and helped to cheer me up ! The reality is the more houses I went, the more depress I got myself into ...aiiiiii , why leh ?

Aiiiii, I know I know we cannot compare life like this, it is not apple to apple ...but I am still a human being, I have feeling loh, so this things will kick in and satan me :(

U see, I'm eyeing for car upgrade - never ever dream of Toyota Camry, that is far way expensive. My teammates here, they are driving nice big cc cars - Honda Accord, Toyota Camry, Honda Oddseey, Nissan, Merz ...their houses equipped with swimming pools, nice lawn, nice garage etc etc ....compared to back home, what they have - i called it mansion or bangalore liow loh. If I were to stay here, by the time I reach at their level - I should be able to have what they have..kan. But if I stay put back home, when I reach their level, I'm still no where as compared to them ( like having their kind of lifesytle - we are not talking about millionaire lifestyle, just a normal middle class aje ) .....So, for once - this idea of 'migrating' hit my heart ...Bahija - did u make the right decision 10 yrs ago ??? People tell me taxes here are high, property taxes, sales taxes bla bla bla .... hey - I still think most of the items are affordable lah. As compared to back home, taxes also high what , and where can I enjoy the benefits ?? Afta open markets, how come car price still increase ? when I'm unemployed, do I get unemployment allowances from Govt ? Emily paid USD 5 for Benji's medical insurance mthly, and he is covered for ALL his medical & surgical expenses ( it is partly sponsored by CA state govt) ...

A lot of my friends are working on migration, some already achieved their goals ....aiiiii, wonder what should I do with mine ....
