First year as an expat in Singapore - lessons learned and tips for newcomers :)

After a year in Singapore, what kind of advice would I give new expats in Singapore or people looking to move here? This is all utterly subjective so don't get annoyed with me if you don't agree, but I would welcome constructive criticism / advice. Especially from people in different situations than me as I am one half of a couple who moved together and work at the same company, with no kids and a mortgage back in Europe.

OCT14 - I have a new post which may also interest you, did a survey of expats and I wrote up my opinion of the results for Singapore here - Expat results for Singapore
JAN15 - Make sure to buy The Entertainer application. More info on that in this post about The Entertainer Singapore.

And what I will miss about Singapore and what I am looking forward to in Nice

Don't worry - you will get used to the heat on the Red Dot. It's 26 degrees at the moment and I fee…

Singapore - Muchachos for rather good Mexican (burritos and quesadillas) on Keong Saik Road

We needed to do some shopping in Chinatown (to be precise - Sia Huat for awesome kitchen stuff!) so I suggested G meet me after my yoga class and we head down to Keong Saik Road and finally try Muchachos! I have heard lots of good things about this American Style Mexican place and was craving some Mexican food, plus had earned the carbs after a class where the instructor actually admitted she was torturing us on purpose! G wasn't too enthused as he isn't such a fan of burritos due to them containing rice, but we now know that Muchachos allows you to customise it entirely so next time G will have a burrito but without rice so we can use our 1 for 1 deal on The Entertainer App.

I went for a pollo asado (Chicken) burrito - yummmmm :) What went in there? Well you can check the "making of the burrito" further down the post but I chose not to have cheese or sour cream and took the guacamole option, so my burrito contained: chicken which was spiced / marinated and grilled,…

Singapore - Mustafa Centre: aisles and aisles of chocolate

To escape the heat and humidity in Little India, we wandered into the Mustafa Centre. Not the main part but the part along Serangoon Road. It seems to have various things that are in the main bit. And you can connect to the main bit from the 2nd floor I believe. 
Why am I telling you this? Because I, like many other women, am a chocoholic. A mad chocoholic. It is the only sweet thing I can't avoid even though I should really as a diabetic! But the magnesium in it is recommended by a friend's doctor to combat fatigue, so it is actually a health food, right?!?
And Mustafa has a lot.... A LOT.... of chocolate. Of all sorts of chocolates. From all over the place. Just check it out. 
All of these aisles, from here to the other end, are full of chocolate, on both sides! So this long:

And this wide: 

So sit back and check out all the chocolate!
