One potential issue is that the Boomer/Gen-X/Millennial categories
that we talk about is based on the World War II climax in 1945.
WW II was also a crisis war for Singapore, and I assume that the war
climaxed in 1945 for Singapore as well. However, that's not 100%
certain. For example, the climax was 1949 for China, thanks to the
civil war between Chiang and Mao.
So you really need to study the history of Singapore since WW II and
identify the major generational events. For example, there may be a
specific event that signaled the transition from Singapore's
Awakening era to its Unraveling era. Move backwards 4 years from
that event, and that's probably the dividing line between Singapore's
Nomad and Hero generations (like America's Gen-Xers and Millennials).

An American born in 1982 is on the cusp between Gen-Xers and
Millennials, and chances are that it's the same for you. In those
cases, what it really depends is how you feel. Which generation do
you feel that you identify most closely with?
