hello.

Just wondering what life is life for expats living in Singapore.
Is it the kind of place where expats join 'clubs' to meet others, and
pay a lot of money to join sports clubs, etc..?

Is there savings to be had there?

It keeps coming up on my 'radar', so am considering a new contract there.

Any advice?

Cheers. Laughing

1/: If you haved read all of the posts, you will realise that Singapore is a very expensive place to live.

2/: If you work at a scumbag language school, you may find that you will not have much time to socialise as ylou will be working on weekends and at night.

3/: What to do? That is a good question!

4/: Advice albeit unsolicited: Stay away from Singapore. You should check out Korea, Taiwan (possibly slipping now) and Japan (also slipping)

Life for expats in Singapore = trips to Malaysia (e.g., Pulau Tioman) or Indonesia (e.g., Batam, Bali).

Boredom = staying in Singapore and walking around in the shopping mall-like atmosphere.

Don't chem gum!

Don't fill your gas tank up in Malaysia.

Don't don't don't......
