In 2004 I decided I wanted to move to Singapore. I packed my bag, hopped on a plane and just went for it.
After arriving, I founded a Pte. Ltd. and acquired a clientele.
Today, 22nd June 2011, after living in Singapore for 7 years non-stop, I consider my move to Singapore well and truly mission accomplished.
Anyone thinking about taking this step, just let me know.

To those of you losing sleep over whether you should or shouldn’t undertake the expat adventure in Singapore; perhaps you worry about your kids ending up being unhappy? Let me share this with you.
My parents decided to move to Singapore when I was a 15-year-old. My dad’s initial contract was for two years, but we ended up staying four years.
These four years were pretty much the best years of my life. I had an absolutely fantastic time, it was an awesome experience. I realized there’s another way of life that the one I was used to and I made countless friends, some of whom are close buddies to this day.
Being immersed in a different culture and a peaceful multicultural one at that, in my view, is priceless.
Yes, all good things must come to an end, and the goodbyes were a bit of a tearful affair. But I’d love to do it all over again.
In fact, I did :) I went back to Singapore 15 years later and I’m still here now, working at my own expat consultancy “Renting in Singapore”.
Still loving it as much as I did then.
