We have been in Singapore for over 2 weeks now and we can honestly say… living in the Lion’s city is quite a change from Europe, no doubt!
What an amazing lifestyle we are adopting here. Our temporary residence for the next 2 months is a beautiful serviced apartment in the Central Business District (CBD) with top-notch facilities.
I am actually typing this blog post sitting by the rooftop pool surrounded by modern skyscrapers and sipping on a delicious iced tea…
Oh the pressures of relocating (lol)!
We have already eaten many varieties of tasty Asian food…
From cheap hawker centres (Lau Pa Sat is just around the corner)…
to the very expensive celebrity restaurant Waku Ghin.
We are starting to develop some local addictions… our latest craving is fresh calamansi & sugar cane juice. Yummy!
Singapore is a wonderful city to live in. It is modern, exotic and extremely efficient. Making our way around the city is easy. The MRT (subways) is convenient and running every 4 minutes.
We are getting used to the way things work around Singapore and slowly realising we have actually moved here.
With Singapore’s tropical climate, we find ourselves sweating bullets and showering at least twice a day. Not to make you jealous or anything, but in Singapore, it’s summer all year round so yes, people complain because it gets too hot… well, except us!
We are developing a new appreciation for air conditioning. I welcome a little moment into the air conditioned places every now and then, usually when my hair starts to get really messy (my frizz control has yet to prove its efficacy).
However, the air conditioned places can easily turn freezing cold. It is mad to think that the only places we need to wear long sleeves are actually indoor.
It is also overwhelming to be flooded with languages we do not understand (but we will talk about how we are getting lost in translation in details soon on Ozawapi).
We are just settling in to our new life in Singapore…so far so good!
