No country is perfect, sometimes it lacks something that another country has more perfectly established.

My question is... which country has something (whatever that is) that you wish your country had?

I wish Singapore had snow and the four seasons!

I'm not picky, any country's four seasons would do just fine.

I have heard that some people that live in your area even haven't seen snow in their entire life. For me the sun is very important, makes me happy.

I wish this part of the country had longer summers and real baeches (the muddy water ones are OK, but they ain't no Varadero). Snow and white Christmases and all are nice, but six months of winter makes one a little stir crazy...

Well, I keep hoping that Canada makes that Canada makes that deal with the Turks and Caicos to join and become a territory or province. Then Canada will really have everything!

Turks and Caicos move to join Canada

As an asian lives in Europe:
I want to live in South East Asia during winter in Europe.
I want to stay in Europe during summer time.

I've been to Turks & Caicos - beautiful powdery white sand beaches and turquois water, amazing scuba diving, very Canadianized already (they had an IGA and a CIBC bank, for god's sake). Why it's not part of Canada already is really beyond me.
