If you're thinking of moving to Singapore / just about to move to Singapore / recently arrived in Singapore and feeling a bit in at the deep end, I gotcha. Two years ago when we moved here I basically didn't really know anyone, and certainly no one with kids. I won't hash out the same old sob story, but it was something of a bewildering, slightly lonely period. I had a toddler with a limited supply of pull ups and a nummy (dummy / pacifier) that kept going awol, and a little boy who refused to eat anything that wasn't white and pasta shaped. Chuck into the mix us finding ourselves jet lagged new arrivals in this hectic city (hectic compared to Devon anyway), and I was rife for some sort of maternal breakdown. So yes, when I say I get it, it's because I really, really do.
