~ expensive cities list ~

21 June 2004

according to World’s most and least expensive cities list, out of the three cities i’ve spent most of my time lately, the order of the most expensive cities is:

  1. Jakarta, Indonesia
  2. Singapore
  3. Melbourne, Australia

that’s a big surprise for me. since i have never thought of Jakarta as an expensive city, i thought the list would go the other way around. or maybe Singapore is on the top, and Jakarta is on the bottom.

another thing that amuses me on that list is that Japan managed to put two of their cities in the top ten. what an expensive country! man, i just vowed to myself a few days ago, that i will move to Japan when i grow up. maybe i should cross that from my to do list. or maybe replace the “when i grow up” with “when i am rich”.
