It has been four months since I moved to Sg. Four months since I started work. And it has been one roller-coaster ride. Everyone wants to know how I like it here, how I’m adjusting, etc. etc. And I’ve been maintaining a ‘so-far-so-good’ attitude.
But last night when I was coming home from a long day at work it hit me. Of all the places in Asia we could have moved to I’m glad/fortunate we moved to Sg. The city is a perfect counterpoint to our absolutely-out-of-control life. There is no chaos. There is a structure for everything. There is guidance provided for every step you take. There is a plan to tackle any and all issues. Everything is well-organized and fairly predictable.
The Bbayite and New Yorker in me may rebel and revolt at this statement but I’m beginning to REALLY like this place.
