Oulu vs Helsinki (LCOL vs HCOL)

I moved from Oulu (low cost of living city in Finland) to Helsinki (high cost of living city in Finland) about half a year ago. Here are my current thoughts about Helsinki. Most of these things can be applied when comparing any smaller LCOL city to a bigger HCOL city.

For me HCOL city is a clear winner. Sure I spend way too much on my rent right now, but what's the point of going to work if you ain't gonna use your money.
