Singapore 9th costliest place in Asia

We are number 9, not number ONE. And that's bad. Some will be unhappy that we are not number ONE, the usual place of glory. Some will say, well, we are not that bad and still have room to grow. Let's try to beat Hongkong first. It is only 4 slot above us. We can start by raising our property prices to compete with Hongkong since ours are still so much cheaper. Then all the others can add up and we will be there. Then we will have another big achievement to crow about.

Your reading of the ST article is a bit warped, right?

Personally, I don't think the article is about competing to be no 1 most expensive city in Asia. Rather, it's about the rise of business costs, especially for Expats. Really, I don't see any hidden subliminal message about competition.
