Chinese Wisdom

First of all I wish you all a very happy, healthy and prosperous New Year. I know you may think it’s a bit late, but that is a matter of perspective as we are right between the Western and Chinese New Year, so I figured it can still be said. We had a lovely Christmas … Continue reading

We got Mail!

We are settling into our new house and new country. We have been busy doing the things you do when you move into a new house, such as unpacking boxes, drilling holes, figuring out where stuff needs to go and finding a place that sells toilet paper. There’s one box left, but I’m sure we’ll … Continue reading

Happy News

The Singapore News Bulletin on TV is great! It is good news mostly, except of course when it is about what happens in the rest of the world. If they mess up, there is nothing Singapore can do about it. Apart from the rare fire, another Dengue outbreak and the occasional murder, nothing bad happens … Continue reading

They Love Me Here!

I am very popular among part of the Singapore population. I am definitely more popular than hubby; maybe more popular than anyone on our street or even the whole of Singapore?

Going Home!?

Moving On

Finally, we are moving! It was a bit of a long wait, but now the date is set and by the end of next week, all our stuff will be in a container on its way to Singapore. Not sure when we follow, but probably soon after that. We’ve been very busy (or rather hubby has … Continue reading

While We Still Can: DIY

While waiting for the details to be filled in for our move to Singapore, we are keeping ourselves busy. Hubby is on ‘garden-leave’, that apparently is the appropriate name for being in between jobs. We are getting ready for the plunge in the unknown by trying to sell our cars, fridge and washing machine. This … Continue reading
