With so much advancements in technologies in our city life now, everything has become so fast and efficient that we have gotten used to everything.. So if now there's still a chance to go back to village life, will be u willing to go back??

i will. i want to live in a place where there a lot of trees, springs and brooks, mountains, fresh air, and everything that nature can offer. and there should be few people and few houses too. i don't like places with lots of people and overcrowded. i don't like living in the city where everything is fast-paced, lots of cars that emits black smoke, people throwing trash anywhere, high buildings, etc. i want the peace and quiet in a village close to nature. but then, i really can't live without tv, movies, and internet and shopping so my house in the village should have a tv, a dvd player, and a computer with internet connection. ^__^;; i should have a car too so when i feel like shopping or watching a movie in the theaters, i can take the car, drive and go to the city which maybe a few hours away. LOL

eh.. i don't want to stay in a hotel. that would be like a building! i was imagining a house made of wood and resembling a nipa hut. ^__^;; its okay for me to walk, as long as i'm not gonna be walking for hours! a little walk to a bus stop is good and then ride the bus going to the city. right, that would be nice. i guess not having a car would be being friendly to mother nature. ^__^

LOL ^_^ just kidding, secret.. hehe.. It will be just like in the 1960s and 1970s whereby children walk to school in the muddy waters and adults walking to bustops to take bus to the city for work :) Everything seems so retro now, just thinking of it.. hehe.. But it's so much fun ^_^

yup certaintly do..i love to live in a village, i'm living in a village (my hometown) but now i living at univ hostel. i like village more because the fresh air, the price of things like food mostly are cheap, but the price og electronic gadget are a bit high. i personally like the ambiance of village...its peaceful to me, but one thing i really hate is...flood...december synonym with flood..really hate it...the government should think of something..its been 3-4 years in a row now

yeah.. The only disadvantage about staying in the village is floods and natural diasters as it has nothing to protect the villages.. BUt that's y a village life is always close to nature or even part of nature, as there's nothing done to spoil the natural surroundings :)

yeah but, before this, there's no major problem of flood happen here..but since the developement here..they build factories,tall building, and many more, then there's flood come as the side effects... the planner of the town should take this problem into consideration...but i guess they're not..hmmm

I think those ple only care about their own interest when they build all those things, they just wanna beautify the area but not really caring about the poor villagers living below.. When there's flood, epidemic and diseases will come also and there gonna be alot of problems :(

Japanese Cottage - Japanese Cottage - my ideal home
Aye.. Neither city nor village is good for me. I wanna stay in country side leh.. Those with small cottages, fresh air, few cars and of course internet (so that I can watch my animes). That would make life so ideal. Living in urban Singapore, I feel suffocated at times, especially during weekends. I seriously hate going to town areas during weekends as it's always mountain people mountain sea. I guess i really hate crowds.

definitely yes.i love the clear and fresh air in country.life in country is much simpler and nearer to the nature.while that doesn't mean absolute isolated.i'd like a window to see the change happening in the outside world.i think a computer or a television is enough to keep follow with the world at the same time i can enjoy the fresh air and relax myself in the country.

Definitely "the city" For the past 4 years, my family and I relocated to this place wherein you can count this one as half-city/half-village . Mind you, I honestly hate living here. I was born and started my life living in the city with all the advancements of technology and all the nice buildings and skyscrapers to see. It made the mountains and village life uncool and boring for me. Though I appreciate the calmness and peaceful living here in the village, my heart goes out for the city. Each day I woke up here makes me want to go back to the city much more. I guess it really matters where we started our lives. Some started theirs in the village thats why they are used to living without that much technology. As for those who started living in the city like me, its really hard to adjust to having an awesome night at the club, to being inside your room watching the mountains at your window. Get me? :( Soon I'll be going back to the city. For sure I'll be happy but as of now, I am very certain that a part of me will remain here in the village. Happy postings

Yeah. Its like you're attached to a place where you started your life living. But there's always room for change. If we want some changes in our life especially either living in the city or the village, its really up to us if we can adapt to it. There's nothing better in this world than to live in some place where it makes us happy, comfortable and gives us solitude; either the city or village. Thanks

i'm ok with both worlds. :) there are some city comforts and technology that i have become attached to. if i can bring them back to the village i would definitely choose to go back to village life, a much simpler way of life. but living is not just about me but also about my loved ones and my family. i could live just about anywhere, so long as i could keep my family with me. :)

i used to think that i would love to live on a farm or in a village but i think when reality sinks in I"ll be really bored. there are people in the city of london who have quit their jobs to live in the british countryside. most of them decide that they just cannot adjust to the lack of convenience and move back to the city within a year or two. personally I've spent about a week in a chinese village and i think I'll just not get used to the lack of running water and services when i need them like the doctor and the dentist...

I have never lived a village life , but my friend from Ghana does , and hates it .There usually are no lights or ovens . I live by the city but not in it . I kinda live out in the country and it is very peaceful , but something has me wanted to move to New York City . If I had a choice I would be a beach bum ! I love the water and could see myself being very happy there

I havebeen living in the city for so many years now.I guess half my age now. I spend my adult years in the city. Since high school until college and now a graduate. I like the living in the city though sometimes noisy but it feels like the life is fast pace. Everything is awareness, people around are interesting and it seems that everyday has something to find out for to make the next day of life more meaningful than today. I prefer living in the city than in the village. My parents lives in the farm side of the city, it's a village, although I stay there sometimes but I still want to go back in the city. I feel like I'm grow more productive than in the village. My skills are best developed in the city I mean.

Yup.. For development wise, city life is definitely better as compared to being in a village.. However, the fast pace life in the city often makes ple stress and causes alot of worries.. IN a way, i should say there's no sense of security in the city.. I will still prefer village life although i've not lived there b4.. I know it's hard life, but for the sake of peacefulness and nice surroundings, i dun mind a hard life.. WHo knows i may learn to better treasure things and ple around me?? hehe

I don't like noise and I love the tranquil peacefulness of the village life where it's so relaxing, and a slower pace of life, the air is much fresher and the traffic is not so busy. Being able to hear birds sing, animals roaming around freely and surrounded by fields, woods and farms would be ideal. I love the quiet life and would go back straight away, I am NOT a city person.

If I were given a choice I would like to choose the village life again. First of all I don’t like to live in the high building or many storey terrace house. I like my land house where I can go in and out conveniently without using any lift or elevator. I have a small piece of land for gardening and outdoor exercise. I like my neighbors around and they just drop by to have a chat and be friendly. The air in the village is fresher and the environment is peaceful and tranquil. There are hill, woods, water falls and streams nearby for the villagers to spend their spare time. They are natural and undeveloped places frequented by people here for relaxation or recreation.

i'm not willing to go back to village life because it means i can't enjoy the convenience and advanced technology of city life. i think that's why most villagers long for city life and try to live in cities. it's true that there are some disadvantages in city life but i think advantages outweight disadvantages.
