New members of the Singapore forum, introduce yourself here – 2017

Hi all,

Newbie on the Singapore forum? Don’t know how to start?

This thread is for you ;)

We invite you to introduce yourself on this topic, to share with us your expat story if you are already living in the country, or to tell us more on your expat projects in Singapore if you are planning to move there.

It will enable us to help you better but above all to wish you a warm welcome.

Welcome on board!

PD : The thread New members of the Singapore forum, introduce yourself here – 2016 continues below!

Happy [solar] New Year, everybody!

I'm Lucy Day H. and I came to Singapore from the US with my husband in 2008. I'm especially excited about Chinese New Year this year because it's going to be Rooster Year and I'm a rooster.

My favorite thing about Singapore is the fascinating language environment. I also like that it's very safe and clean. My least favorite thing is the unchanging climate.

Hi everyone!! Just joined the forum and my wife and I made the decision yesterday to solidify our plans to move to SE Asia with the goal of being employed in Singapore and serving in a regional capacity with service to Asian partners...i.e have laptop will travel!! 

My wife is from Manila, I am American with most of my time spent in Alabama, Virginia, Texas and California. I have done business and visited many Asian countries and love the culture and food. I have experience working in Korea, China, Japan, Malaysia, India, and a few other countries. We will visit Bangkok and Manila again this year to visit friends and family and to start building my business social network.

Look forward to meeting great people here. Counting backwards from May 2018. That is my drop dead date to be living overseas...job or no job I will be there.

Hi Everyone,

My name is Michael and I'm a senior citizen but am currently still working as I'm a relatively active person and do not like to sit at home.

I've worked as a real estate agent some years back helping expats to find their rental homes in Singapore. So in a small way I'm familiar with some of the properties (apartments or houses) in Singapore, especially those in Dists. 9, 10, 11 and 21.

However, I must qualify that my active working experience was some 10-12 years ago. A lot of new properties have since come into the market but basically certain things do not change that much. Examples:-

(1)    Finding the right property that is good for the family i.e. children's school, working place etc.
(2)    Letter of Intent - once you have found the right property you need to put up an offer in order to "reserve" it or else the property agent may try to use your offer to get another Tenant for the Landlord.
(3)    Tenancy Agreement - Terms & Conditions. While I'm not a lawyer trained in conveyancing laws and practice, as real estate agents we need to know some of the "ins and outs" of the Tenancy Agreement.
(4)    As a local resident I may be able to help with the furnishing for the home once you have found your right property.

Last but not least, my passion and desire to help families to settle down quickly in Singapore would be a great help to families who are new to the wonderful city state. We would like to extend a very warm and hearty welcome to all.

Kind regards,

Michael Lim.spore

Hi everyone. I'm working in digital marketing field and intending to expand our business to Singapore. It'd be great if you can come up with business advice and potential cooperation.
I went to Singapore several times mainly for business trips. Hopefully I can live there as an expat soon.
Do contact me if you share same interest.

Please note that it is easy to start a business in Singapore, but very difficult to get a visa based on running that business. You should read about the requirements of EntrePass, which is the visa type you need for that.
You should also engage an experienced business incorporation service provider like Hawksford (guidemesingapore.com) or Rikvin (rikvin.com) to help you with the preparations.
Good luck!
