I'm so proud of myself!

There is a new icon on my blog! Did you see it? Yes, that one for expat arrivals! I kind of earned that logo!

A few weeks ago I was contacted by the Expat arrivals site to write an article for them. No pay or anything just write an article and maybe I'll get more visitors to my blog. I would have wrote the article anyway. I like helping people, and giving MY side of advice. And this little article I did for them...  is just that, my experience and the advice I can give out. I'm really no expert on anything and everyone will have different experiences or ideas what is best for them. But this is a good guideline to start with.

The Expat Arrivals site has many informative articles. It is worth checking out. They have real people living in Singapore telling how they deal with the culture shock  or with renting property here. I personally like the real world experience that people can share as opposed to the books written by people that have never really "lived" in Singapore.

I was very happy they even asked for me to be a contributor. Like I said, I like helping others as much as I can and I do like writing from time to time. This was good for me to write to someone for someone else's needs. It made me think about how much I've become accustomed to many things here in Singapore. I had to think about how I felt the first few weeks and how daunting it was for me to go outside the house much less find a Dr. and lately I feel like we have been living at the Dr. offices. So, I may not be the best expert they could have asked but I'm happy just the same to share the little bit of info I did have.

Congratulations! And a great article it is.

It's easy to forget how hard it was when we all first moved here and now it's just like home.

Hi! I found your blog by chance while I was googling "curling iron" and had been reading some of your past posts (hope you don't mind). Your earlier posts when you first came to Singapore reminds me about my earlier days during our 2 years in Arizona too! It was tough trying to adapt in a foreign land. We too missed not having to walk much to get stuff and till now, I hope to find my stuff online, which I almost never succeed.

Sorry for the irrelevant comment to this entry :)

Enjoy your stay here. You make me appreciate Singapore more than I should already be. Hehe.
