No offense, but one of my singaporean friend said this funny sentence:
"Give me a country with size similar to singapore with same strategic location, I'd do even better job than any PM Lee"
Howabout Bintan or Batam? Can your fren do something similar there??

singapore government officials get million dollar salaries to curve corruption. Good luck replicating that model
Yeah, i often wonder why we had to institutionalise the corruption by paying them ministers million dollar salaries. But then, if the ministers got bribes and kick-backs, maybe we won't have sovereign wealth funds to invest in the United States blue chip firms..???
