About the Author
After living in Holland, UK and Australia, I decided to settle in Singapore. Singapore isn't perfect, I don't think anywhere is, but in my opinion Singapore is as close to perfect as a country can get. Affordable, comfortable, clean, safe and both culturally and geographically an ideal stepping stone whence to explore the rest of Asia. Being an expat myself who went through the entire process of immigration, finding accommodation and then settling down in Singapore, I'm in the position to assist new arrivals in these very areas - areas that we all tend to be a little apprehensive about initially.
Expats or expats-to-be who think they could do with a few tips on how to streamline the above procedures are welcome to get in touch with me.

In a month's time after my arrival in Singapore, I felt that there isn't much to explore on this island. Was pleased to be proven wrong after reading this piece of information, would head to the stated locales during upcoming weekends.
