Singapore: Where to get British food and other home comforts

Now I've been here a few months I've realised how truly British I actually am! I have missed quite a few things from Blighty, so have made it my mission to track them down in Singapore. Fellow expats, you're welcome...

How I followed my dream to live abroad

Since I left the UK and moved to Singapore for a few months I've had so many questions about it from people who are considering a similar move. Throughout my working life I've lost count of the number of people I have heard in the office saying, 'I wish I'd lived abroad when I was younger' and I really didn't want to be the one saying that in future.

Today's post is about turning those dreams of living abroad into reality, and whilst everyone's life and journey is different I hope some of my thoughts will help and inspire you.

MacRitchie Reservoir, Singapore: Tips before you go

I visited this beautiful, green part of Singapore for the first time this month and found it a great way to get some exercise, fresh air and escape some of the Singapore humidity for the day. Here are my quick top 10 tips to note before you visit MacRitchie for a walk.

Avoid the Midday Sun

It's a really nice place to get a break from the city centre humidity, however, don't be fooled into thinking your walk will all be in the shade. The tree top walk is open to the elements as are many other parts of the walk. We visited mid afternoon and I would advise going for 2pm. The treetop walk closes at 5pm but you have until 7pm to make your way back.
