Loveluis, mind if I ask what line or industry your hubby working in? is his co also paying his spouse expenses so that u can be there?
How long more do you expect to be in USA or is his a permanent posting?
We spend our weekends doing housework, going to the beach, going to church on Sundays, and chilling out at home. We also get up to some cooking together. my hubby likes it. Hee hee...
And how do you spend your weekends? What are your plans for christmas?
Me and hubby just found a place to rent (we are living with his parents at the moment), and we'll be moving out in 2weeks. So I guess we'll be spending christmas doing up our new home! We're really excited and looking forward to it! We also cancelled some holiday plans so as to start moving.
Hi gracious, good'ay! I have not been in Melbourne before, and that is one place i'd like to go.
I actually met up with siewmaiharkao from this forum, who's in brisbane at the moment staying with her boyfriend. It was nice to meet some Singaporeans here!
So tell us more about yourself. What do you do while your hubby is doing his masters? And I guess Australia is not a permanent home for you then? Are you planning to return to Singapore?
It's miserable here today! It's wet and rainy, and it'll remain like that for the weekend too! What a bummer! Looks like we can't go to the beach this weekend...How's the weather at your end? Is it winter now? We are now in the first weeks of summer, and Australian X'mases are traditionally hot hot hot!
sorry for being MIA, seldom come into this site. My hubby's a Sporean, found a job in HK, so i quit and join him here. I love HK as well, but too bad, he's got another better opportunity coming in Spore, so we might be returning to Spore soon in 2005. Frankly, if i have a choice, i'd rather stay in HK. Loveluis, u're right, the food's good and we're spoilt for choice when it comes to shopping! Spore's too stifling for us. Sigh. Anyway, to answer your question Fern, my hubby's in the banking industry
Yep, its winter now...but it doesnt snow in LA
But it's surprisingly hot today in LA...can u imagine 27degrees.... its usually 6 - 15 degrees during the past few weeks...it would be hot for the next few days*sian*....seems that the weather here is getting me prepared for the singapore weather next week...hahhaha
Hmm...*cool* to experience Christmas in Australia
I'm so happi that u replied
Yep...HK is a paradise for food & shopping
So when will u be back in singapore?
Btw how long have u been in HK ?
i'm living in toronto right now. am working in a database marketing firm..... came here with hubby (he's french and found a job here) and luckily i found a job abt 2 months after arriving here. was desperate to work as i was not working for a year while we were living in vancouver.
I have a love/hate relationship with TO. Sometimes i want to leave this city and move somewhere else, sometimes i'm happy to stay here. Currently, the feeling is neutral. Just went ice-skating in the open today.... and it was also snowing so was fun. but i know i'll start to hate it when it gets too cold..... sigh... never content.
Aww Sannie, i heard that Toronto is very beautiful and has a big asian population? But i also heard that the weather can be extremely cold! I dun know how i'd feel living there?!
I feel that Australia is not too far from Singapore, thus i dun feel too far from home...
i thot the HK lifestyle was more stressful than Singapore? I dun understand or cantonese, and i felt very lost and intimidated by the HK'ers. I also heard stories about how shopekeepers would scold you if u tried to bargain with them? Haha...
hi fern, yes, it's cool here in TO. in jan, the temp could go down to -30 degrees. that's the hate part of my relationship with the city.
there is a huge asian population and on a whole it is a pretty safe city and there are lots to see and do..... could travel to NYC, niagara etc easily. In the last 11 months i'm here, we have had the opportunity to visit a couple of places.... but it is very far from sg and i do miss my family lots.... and the food too.
I have just been in Australia 3.5months. i came here in Sept with my hubby. Dun think will be heading back till june/July next year...boo hoo! I miss my family so much closer to the christmas season!!!
I'm staying in the North. Only 8 tables in SG and I'm almost finialising my wedding details. Going to SG next weekend for a week. So by that time, I should have everything settled and ready to go for my Oct wedding!!! =)
Hi Karen, I read that you are planning your wedding from overseas. Glad to know that you are almost set for the wedding. You are efficient! I am already married (in May 05) and I too had to plan and prepare for my wedding from overseas and I only had about 6 months! We also held two small dinners in Singapore, one for relatives and parents' close friends -9 tables and another dinner for about 30 close friends. I was lucky that I my parents were really 'hardworking' doing alot of legwork and checking out places for me. I never thought I would be able to complete everything and organise a church wedding, lunch reception overseas and two dinners in Sing, all in 6 months but I did it!
Did you get your WG, EG etc in Sydney or Singapore? Are you studying or working there?
Hope u r still reading this thread...R u in HK already? Settling in fine?
I might be moving to HK with hubby soon. He's finalising details abt his pkg, so not confirmed yet. Having mixed feelings abt it... Though I love shopping, but am afraid that the work culture is so diff there. Heard that pp there are very 'pia', 'kiasu' and selfish in the workplace, so very difficult make good friends.
