Should I relocate? Before making a decision….

A question has always been bothering me: Should I relocate to Singapore? Since I’m in Hong Kong now and the tech industry is better developed in Singapore. Without impulsive decision (what I did when coming to HK), I’m going to Singapore for a 10-day trip. I hope the question can be answered properly by the end of the trip: Should I relocate to Singapore?
