Hi - The reason why some men left Singapore was because of the miltary system - as far as I know every male at a certain age had to do 2 years miltary service.
I have a relative who left, and he can never go home, as he would be classed as a deserter. he can't even visit his aging Mum.
You need to post in a few other places as well..
